Corridor Restaurant serves superb fine cuisine in San Francisco, focusing on global dishes in its warm and inviting eatery. Awarded 3 stars from the San Francisco Chronicle for the fun, playful and elegent presentation of every day fare, Corridor's menu is expansive and refined. Excellent starter options, such as the crispy falafel croquettes with pickled onion and tzatziki and the roasted carrot and citrus salad with curry vinaigrette, make for ideal appetizers. Corridor Restaurant’s house specialty entrees, such as the Maine style shrimp roll with avocado and Old Bay aioli, the meatloaf wellington with truffle jus and the fall vegetable pot pie with roasted shallot cream, are as comforting as they are inventive.

To accompany, a vast selection of draft beer and wine are available with a constantly rotating and changing menu.

the check in was quite disorganized but I like the restaurant for being low key and very convenient with adequate food fairly priced.

The food is always great here and the staff are top notch. I enjoy Corridor for lunch and happy hour on a regular basis. We had the falafel as an appetizer- very moist & flavorful. I ordered the Cobb salad which is always delicious. Highly recommend!

We dine at Corridor whenever we go to the theater nearby. The menu changes often so there are always surprises. We have never had anything but very good meals there.

Corridor is a convenient spot to grad dinner before a show. The food is ok and service is ok; nothing spectacular, but better than nearby diners.

Despite the mess on Van Ness, Corridor was easy to find & accessible. A last minute reservation turned out to be a very pleasant meal before our show.

We had reservations at 5pm and a show to catch at 7pm. The staff made our experience very nice and made sure we were able to catch our show. The food was beautiful and delicious, the drinks were strong and classy.

Their chickory and citrus salad was delicious and plentiful - more than enough for 2 to share. Carrot risotto was also good. Truffle stuffed chicken was good and very moist but could have had more vegetables as an accompaniment. Salad and carrot risotto were both good values, the stuffed chicken not so much. Restaurant is conscious about timing if diners have tickets for a show in the area.

A nice blend of casual experience and fine dining. The menu is limited in size, but the offerings were imaginative and covered a fair amount of territory. Not a vegetarian, I took a chance on the vegetable pot pie and was rewarded by a sizable bowl of steaming, crunchy vegetables in a savory sauce under a thin, well-browned crust. Even more exciting was the mixed salad with citrus--one of the best salads ever, anywhere. Even my guest's burger and side of meatballs were above the run of the mill.

Service could not have been more accommodating, and we enjoyed casual bits of conversation with our server.

This was my first time at Corridor and it certainly is a good pre-concert alternative. Food was very good. I only have 2 complaints:
1) the ambient noise level from the open kitchen and the exhaust fan made talking very difficult. The tables are long and of course with other tables talking that becomes an issue.
2) the high stools are very uncomfortable and impossible to move forward or back once seated. The feet stick to the concrete floor making one have to get off the stool to move it. And being metal they are just uncomfortable.

The food and the service were very good. What ruined my experience was that a waiter (not our waitress) tried to get us to move after our appetizers from a two-top (facing each other deep conversation) - to a bench seat with both of us facing outward. I thought this was unprecedented and RUDE. Needless to say I didn't move but it really left a "bad taste."

I have eaten at Corridor several times and always liked it quite well. This time my meal was disappointing, very ordinary salad, cold squash soup. Perhaps I just ordered the wrong thing. Plus we were seated at a counter rather than a table. OTOH, I screwed up the VISA payment and when I called back, the problem was immediately and graciously solved. Much appreciated.

Three of us enjoyed a delicious dinner before the Symphony. The waitperson was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, asked about our time constraints and had us on our way in plenty of time. I’m having dinner at Corridor tonight following the Chinese New Year concert at Davies. I’m looking forward to the scrumptious seared scallops!

Good food. Scallop and Black Ink Pasta was very good, but a little to rich for my palate. Pretty good atmosphere & service. We were about a ten minute walk to the theater.

We read the reviews for this restaurant and found them to be accurate. We picked 4 starters and made a meal out of it. More than enough! We had the salad, the meatballs (excellent), the calamari misto (really yummy), and the falafel croquettes (my favorite). He had beer and I had a glass of the pinot. We were so surprised to find a reasonable, fast, and tasty venue so close to Davies Symphony Hall. We will be back. It was also nice to be seated upstairs where it was a tad quieter. We hate loud venues because we are both soft-spoken and have to strain to be heard.

Very pleasantly surprised by the amazing quality and presentation of the food. But, this place is REALLY loud and that makes it difficult for pleasant conversation.

This was a first time visit before a Symphony concert. We arrived early, but were seated right away. Our server asked if we had a concert to attend, and we ordered drinks and appetizers, which came promptly. There was a problem with my glass of wine, and when I asked if the bottle had been opened a long time, she replied that it was “on tap”. Another wine was selected, which was ok, but which wasn’t especially noteworthy. I had finished my appetizer when the entree arrived, but my companion had about half of his left. Since the table was very small, it presented some juggling issues, plus the entree sat for about 10 more minutes before we could begin to eat it.
Fortunately, it was still warm, and the truffle infusion in the chicken made it especially tasty. It was large enough that we shared and both felt very full. I will look forward to a return visit and to try out some of the other dishes.

First of all the food was delicious! We were 4 and ordered four different entrees (pasta, scallops, veggie pot pie and burgers and not a crumb was left. The ambience is classy, and the whole staff hustled to get everyone served before their 7pm showtimes. Great time ! We’ll be back

My husband and I think that Jason, the chef at Corridor is very gifted. The dishes we enjoyed on the New Years Eve fixed price meal was way beyond what one would expect on a chaotic evening like December 31st. I have consistently eaten food at Corridor that was definitely Michelin star worthy. Tasty, pretty and relevant dishes are served by pleasant, intelligent servers who are proud and enthusiastic about their job. What a treat! The mushroom risotto was superior. I also like all the soup they make and to top it all off, the price can’t be beat.

We had a special prix-fixe menu for New Year's Eve that was quite good although selection was limited to two each of starters and mains.

One tiny cavil is the tip suggestions that came on the bill. Why are the percentages based on the food, the state sales tax and the provision for employee health care? The latter two items are quite extraneous to what I came to the restaurant for. What is the logic of applying a tip to those items? If you were eating in Oregon (no sales tax and no health surcharge), for example, would you tip extra because you did not have to contend with those amounts? Doesn't make sense to this customer.

We arrived not knowing there was a limited pre-fixe menu for NYE. (Someone had called to tell me, but I hadn't seen the message). One of us is vegetarian; the other pescatarian. The tuna appetizer was delicious; the beet salad was very good but we had to get a second one due to a hair being on the plate. We split a pasta which was good too. If we could have stopped there, we would have. The main course, a vegetable pot pie, was utterly bland and uninteresting. The desserts were pretty to look at it, but nothing special to eat. Overall, we were very disappointed as our bill (no had no alcohol), with tip, was $200. Not worth it by a long shot.
