    Overpriced food and outside seating wasn’t great - lots of drunk ppl on the streets, took a while to be seated, served and was expensive enough it should have been more pleasant.

    Always a good time and great food. Our server was fantastic but the kitchen did no favors for her.... very late getting food out . Server (Willa) extremely knowledgeable about all-things Delfina (wine, food, flavors) as well as great ice cream places around the city.

    It was wonderful as usual. Only wish the calamari and crudo were on the menu but both were missing last night. We enjoyed anchovy toast, deviled eggs, mortadella, chicory salad, fritto misto, pappardelle and whole fish.

    What a disappointment! We have been coming here for years and were very excited to be back. We were celebrating our mom, for a sister's weekend and overall, the service was terrible. Our meal was mediocre at best, I feel as if the entire charm, quality of food and most importantly hospitality have completely gone out the door here. Sad to say we will not be back.

    From the bartender to the wait staff, everything was perfect. Everyone was cheerful. Even the other guests were happy and generous. The drinks were beautifully made. The food was delicious; we had the grilled bread, the chicken liver crostini, a thin-crust Margherita pizza, the grilled cabbage, and the insalata del campo. SO good. No take home boxes tonight.

    Wonderful as always. Loved the Passover additions and just how well they are made. The italian food is exceptional and matches and bests most Italian restaurants in NYC. The restaurant is lovely and beautiful. A must for anyone visiting SF and the local's best Italian restaurant at SF.

    Caleb was our waiter and he was fantastic at his job! He made great recommendations for food and wine choices. Everything we ordered was so delicious! I don't think you can go wrong with everything on this ever changing menu. It would have been nice to have more selection of less expensive wine, but overall, a wonderful night out!

    When one has a reservation made. Is OpenTable the expectation is the table will be there when you arrive. Having to wait 35 minutes after our reservation time is inconsiderate considering of the guest is late by 15 minutes we usually lose the reservation. Having a reservation for 30 days. Confirming the day before and calling when we were on our way all comports with being a good guest. We are not asking too much for the restaurant to manage tables, not overbook out of greed or not advise the guest before us that the table is already booked at a set time and they will be expected to leave.

    The whole sea bream was grilled to perfection served with salsa verde and charred lemons ,the wood grilled octopus was also perfectly executed, of course the margarita pizza was and spaghetti pomodoro were delish as always! We enjoyed the mussels too except there were only 6 (don’t expect a bucket of mussels ) but the sformato was good. 5 stars! Like the new updated look too. I had the Stellare spritz made with Prosecco garnished with a slice of orange …a very pleasant drink …5 stars!

    So fun to be back at Delfina. It's the first time we've been since they remodeled a wee bit back. We have been going since they first opened way back when and it is wonderful to know the quality of the food and service has remained consistently great over all these years. There is a casual elegance that permeates the menu, service and ambiance of the restaurant which anchors it to be a place you'd like to call your regular haunt for years to come.

    On every list of SF Outstanding Restaurants, Delfina lives up to its reputation on every visit. We participated in a special pairing event of Sicilian wines that included the importer as a host, and it was terrific. Every ingredient is chosen with care and every dish is a special event. It was a perfect night for my wife and I, who visit Delfina every time we make it to SF 3-4 times a year.
