The food was very good, especially the egg plant and noodles but service was sketchy. We must have had 3 or 4 different waiters/servers but understand that they are short staffed due to the shut down.

Love E&O and glad to see it made it through the pandemic. Delicious, creative dishes that span the cuisines of several Asian countries. Great place to share stuff so you can try more!

Food was mediocre at best. Not a single one of the 5 things ordered had any semblance of flavor. Waiter was a little slow…but it may be because he was learning that toast app.
Nice people there. But the food went downhill in a huge way.

This is a long standing restaurant with so many amazing dishes. The quality of all we had was truly superb. We went with several small plates to share. The ahi tartare was just so clean and fresh tasting with a little under heat. Secondly, we had the lamb naan the raita that came with it added a cool freshness and the chutney had warm spices and was thick and jammy great accompaniments. We also did lettuce cups and last but not least an E&O classic corn fritters. No trip to E&O can not include the fritters. They did not disappoint. Such a special dish.

If you are looking for a great dining experience around Unions Square, stop by E & O Kitchen & Bar. Great atmosphere for asian cuisine and cocktails, plus they have a outstanding "Happy Hour"!!

Ordered drinks and food. The food came out before we got our drinks. Ordered the pad Thai and asked for it spicy, it came out very bland. The drinks were very good but the food missed the mark and the service was slow especially with the drinks.

The food is excellent here--and we especially recommend the Indonesian corn fritters, which are deliciously unusual.
Our only issue was that half of our food order arrived early, but the second half didn’t come until we prompted the server. Because we were outside--and it was typical San Francisco weather--we got pretty cold during the wait. That said, E&O compensated us for the wait with a free drink.
We’ll definitely go back here again. The Asian fusion menu is great, and we look forward to the time when we can dine at E&O under more normal circumstances.

We were somewhat isolated which was good with COVID but service less ideal. We liked the papaya salad- very fresh. The chicken satay was dull, just chicken tenders on skewers. Katsu chicken was better but deeply fried. Not a top recommendation but acceptable.

This was the absolute worst food I've eaten in years. Gummy dumpling wrappers, strange coursing, expensive colorless satay. All in, very expensive to eat cold food from a Whole Foods hot var.

The place needs a branding refresh. Very nice outside but logo and all the signs looks terrible. It should be more classy branding to show what it’s like inside.

We are locals staying in SF for the weekend. E & O Kitchen surpassed our expectations. From friendly and efficient staff to scrumptious food, we had no complaints. Our absolute fav were the shiitake mushroom dumplings - we had to order a second round. Tip, keep the leftover sauce handy for dipping other things like the pork bun. Also fabulous were the corn fritters, pork buns and string beans. I really wanted to try the baby back ribs but just couldn’t eat anymore. The rose cava was very nice as was the old fashioned. I’ll definitely be coming back and bringing more friends.

This place gets it right every time. The dry fried green beans are fantastic! The mushroom dumplings have SO much flavor. Their house margaritas are very good. Definitely put this back on your list. I think it’s been here around 27 years. Time to go again. You’ll love it.

I like this place; it hits the important points for a good night out. First off: consistency. The food menus is solid and the cocktail menus is always changing with great tasting cocktails. Prices are right and service is typically warm, professional and accommodating. The crowd here is often dates and people grabbing dinner/drinks with coworkers. This consistency explains why they have been open for 22 years and I return every 6 months or so.

Food and service were good. Better than I remembered from years ago. My biggest complaint was the enormous and uncomfortable chairs that did not fit under the table we were at. Not being well seated , more like sinking into an oversized chair for the height of the table made my meal less enjoyable.

Most of our food was really tasty. The corn fritters, Asian Caesar salad and Shaking beef, were favorites. Chicken lettuce cups and a cheesy pita thing, were more blah. Our server was wonderful! They were extremely busy, which is normal, so you need to forgive the servers for not stopping by right when you need them to. Just enjoy your company, and relax. Cocktails were expensive but very good

They sat us in the worst possible table in the restaurant, right next to the grill area so the blowers from that area blew on us the entire time and the lights from the grill/ kitchen were bright which made it hard to look at people sitting at the end of the table. Horrible area to have a table in a restaurant. Disappointed

The food was quite disappointing. I have been here some years ago and everything was fine. Meat (NY strip and shaking beef) were dry and almost had no flavor. The appetizers were OK and the desert as well. Service was very good and responsive. The place is clean and has a nice oriental ambiance. Seating is not too comfortable because of the lounge type of chairs which are not ideal for dining tables
