    the great Line Hotel front desk told us that Tenderheart had closed 2/14! They sent us upstairs to the Rise Above bar, which did its best to accommodate us. Weird that Open Table didn't know about this.

    I would recommend Tenderheart even though our dinner did not go as planned. There was a mix-up in the kitchen and we didn't get our entrees. By the time they realized the problem it was too late to fix it and for us to get to the theater on time. That said, what we had was very good. It's a lovely room. Things were a bit disjointed but the staff was very friendly. The manager comped our whole bill (drinks, appetizers, dessert). That was unnecessary but a very nice and appreciated gesture. We will go back. It's a welcome addition to a troublesome area in the City.

    Another fantastic meal before a show at the Golden Gate Theater. Service is great & the food is wonderful. Plus just a block away from the theater.

    THe restaurant was listed as an Asian restaurant but it is not. The menu is small but the food was very good and enjoyed a nice fish dish.

    Had a great dinner before a show at The Warfield. Our server was great, asked what time we needed to be out the door for the show and managed the food service really well. There was a great deal on a 3-course meal for the table (shared starters and individual entrees & desert) but given time constraints we went ala carte. All the dishes were really good, the beef dumplings being the least appreciated. The burger is a good deal (and tasty!) at $18, the wild mushrooms were delicious, chicken wings were great, little gems salad and the burrata were really good as well. Highly recommended for a meal close to the theatres. There are plenty of seats at the bar and along the kitchen so a walk-in is a good option.

    Great restaurant with amazing cocktails! Get the wings you won’t be disappointed. The only downside is the place was pretty empty so the ambience was a little quiet. Hope more people discover this place!!
