Never acknowledged the fact that we noted it was an anniversary. We had 6 family member there for our 1 year anniversary and not even a word. Our party was also excited about dessert but to our surprise the bill was brought out after our plates were collected and dessert was not offered to us. We decided to pass after they decided to pass on our business

I specifically said many times I was vegan and said to the server to emphasize, “no creatures.” The server told the kitchen to leave the shrimp off the Pad Thai but the dish was loaded with fish sauce. Luckily I only had a small amount and my reaction was minor.

Our experience at E & O Kitchen was for a Saturday Happy Hour. First of all, who knew that someone had a Saturday Happy Hour? We had gone to theater matinee and this was the exact right time to find a great experience in dining. We were seated immediately and our waiter, Daniel, proceeded to describe some of his favorite menu choices on the HH menu. Usually, it's all bar food, but these selections were diverse and more healthy and fresh. Raw oysters were a dollar a piece, we had satay and raw tuna poppers, chicken satay and their special $6 full-sized drinks. The food was clean yet complex, delicate and tasty. Daniel was attentive, especially as we kept adding items onto our order. This was a great way to control our portions and our expenses. E & O Kitchen is consistently welcoming and delicious. The tables are close together, but that's a common complaint of mine.

My friends were from out of town. I was disappointed with the service and the food. Our waiter seemed to hurry us in the ordering at each point even though the restaurant was not crowded. The seasoning was neither distinctive nor nuanced as I remembered - no clear flavor or seasoning, or textural contrast. A lot of cool ingredients added up to a blah experience. The portions were oversized. What’s happened? I ordered for myself items I had had numerous times before and loved - pad Thai and deviled eggs. But they were nothing like what I had fondly remembered. My guests’ burgers looked bad and I tasted part of one. No one finished more than a half of their food.

We had a very fun meal at E&O. Our waiter Grant took very good care of our needs and was terrific at explaining the dishes. With six small plates for four of us it was about the right amount of food. The drinks put it a bit out of my budget but the food prices were ok for SF.

I have been going to E&O since it opened in 1997. The quality and originality of the food and service has been consistently good throughout this time - 21 years. Not many restaurants can say this and the fact E&O was packed on a Monday night pretty much sums it up. One important thing not to underestimated is the restaurant's proximity to the Sutter/Stockton parking garage, which makes the dining experience so much less stressful. If E&O would add some vegan-friendly main courses to the menu, I would award it 5 stars for food. As it stands, my dinner guest and I ate only sides and a salad, which were delicious in their own right. But all the mains, appetizers and noodle dishes were off limits for us, sometimes due to the use of a single ingredient like butter or shellfish sauce. While the latter is a staple of Southeast Asian cooking, butter is certainly not and could have been omitted from the dish without loss of flavor, in my opinion.

Awesome, awesome food. We booked reservations two nights in a row rather than opting to try another place for dinner because we had to try other things from the menu. My favorites were the corn fritters, shaking beef, portabella satay, Indonesian fried rice, and Pad Thai.... I guess that’s everything we ordered. We will definitely come back.

Great social place in Union Square, ideal for happy hour or pre-theater dinner. Food is tasty if a tad too sweet, but that is not unique to E&O. Great for groups and a high energy experience.
