My work department celebrated the birthday lunch of our three colleagues at this restaurant. The food is good, ambiance is nice & the service is wonderful. The server is so nice providing 3 bday desserts! We shall return as this is a good place to celebrate occasions whether in small or big groups.

it's a bar, not a restaurant, as it wants to be.
I ordered a pork chop because someone recommended.....
NOT....Pork Chop was dry as jerky.
My wife and I each order a virgin Bloody Mary....man... I think pepper was On Sale that day...SPICY as hell. worst Bloody Mary I ever had.
Fortunately, Fried Chicken and Fries were good. Otherwise, nothing special.
I should have known when there was only 1 other party during our visit.

I was expecting more. There were shells in the oysters and the risotto had the texture of rice plus the shrimp was way overcooked. Great Manhattan and service but won’t be going back.

While the food was good, the service/wait time was awful. Drinks took forever, the food took forever, desserts and coffee took forever. And it was not even crowded for a Saturday night, so it couldn't be because the kitchen or servers were overwhelmed. Strangely, we had 5 different servers throughout our dinner. Location was great if you are catching a show at the Punchline, but give yourselves plenty of time!

My family and I ended up leaving this place before we ate due to the poor experience. Walking in to an empty restaurant we stood at the entry waiting for someone to help us while the staff stared. The waiter came over and looked surprised and annoyed we wanted to sit to eat dinner. Then they couldn’t find our reservation - not that it mattered in an empty restaurant but they were accusatory of us. We sit. And wait. And wait. Finally the waiter comes by - we ask about the soup. He looks at us and mutters oh yeah we don’t have that today. With that we got up and left.

This place has the look and feel of an old school British pub and the menu to match. The description and name gave us a very different expectation. This is likely a great post work bar with decent food.

This was our 2nd time visiting over a 4 day period. Was hesitant and apprehensive at first due to the wide ranging reviews. Upon arrival everyone (staff) were extremely pleasant. While reviewing the menu, we were able to overhear a party of 8 boast about how delicious each of their particular meals were. Another table of two also seemed to be enjoying their meals. During the 1st visit we ordered and shared the 1/2 dozen oysters and Kale Salad. Both were remarkable. My entree were the pork chops. Wasn't a definite fan, a little tough in my opinion. Didnt taste bad but was a little disappointed. My guest had the margherita pizza which turned out phenomenal. We opted to give it another attempt at redemption. The second trip, the oysters were on special (BONUS)! And we had the Kale Salad. The salad wasn't it good as the first time we tried it, it seemed to be lacking the amount of dressing. But still a good price and salad for the price. My guest ordered the margherita pizza again and it was just as good and maybe better than the first time. I went with the Fungi Pizza. Amazingly good! The place is dimly lit, especially in a dark themed restaurant. They have led candles on each table. But you may need a cell phone flashlight to use an more effective light source. Service was great, non intrusive but attentive. The first visit we had Donavin. Pure perfection as a server. Probably the main reason why we returned. Slightly disappointed that he wasn't there for our second visit. Stefan was our server on the 2nd visit. Very charming person and knowledgeable. Not as engaging or charismatic as Donavin, but, equally as professional. I'd definitely return if in the area again. Great experience and even better food.

Service was slow (and no it was not packed) and not friendly. Even with a reservation we had to wait. Food came out room temperature but was too tired to complain. Main course came out with our appetizers.

The kitchen substituted almonds for the walnuts in my salad, without consulting or informing me. I’m allergic to almonds. The server comped our meal, which I appreciated. I would not recommend eating the food here.

An unfortunate dinner.
Started with a cup of under cooked lentil soup that tasted of dish water.
Continued with a dry pork chop served with an inedible side of something green.
Finished with warm and supple apples on top of cardboard crust (I think it was meant to be a tart).
The staff, pleasant and well meaning, were all over the place and nowhere to be found when needed.
The photos on the website look more gastro pub than the sports bar it seems to be.
Such a shame for what had promised to be an earnest attempt at locally sourced fare.

Service was spotty, good at the beginning, had to hunt for check. Best fish and chips - line caught (wild) cod. Ahi was very good, drinks good and ample. Attached to a hotel, and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, which probably accounts for the service issues. Lively bar.

We went after seeing a film at the nearby Embarcadero Cinema. On a Saturday evening, the place was nearly deserted. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Food was so-so. Cheeseburger: very good. Crab cakes: very good. Grilled calamari salad w beans: great concept but made too spicy for a delicately-flavored seafood. Roasted vegetables were disappointing: When first served, the zucchini and most other veggies were cooked properly but the carrots were nearly raw - cold and crunchy inside. When I asked waiter to correct, the chef threw it in the microwave to make everything soft, but now these were boring steamed vegetables, not roasted vegetables. The kitchen apparently does not understand how to put things on the grill at staggered times so everything is properly cooked at the end. Or slice thinner or partly pre-cook. Simple stuff, really.

I was excited to try Fish & Farm, but my colleagues and I were disappointed by the service. The waiter seemed to be the only waiter working for dinner service with 1 person clearing the plates. When we arrived, the waiter approached the hostess desk and pointed us to our reserved table. He showed no emotion or enthusiasm. He was simply doing his job. The ambiance of the dining area was underwhelming because the televisions at the bar were loud and the tables are very close to the bar. We all really enjoyed the food- we had king salmon and shared several appetizers and wine. There are so many options in San Francisco, so I would not return.

The restaurant is a nice venue with an active bar, good bartender and good TV access. The service was disorganized, multiple people would take orders but then not communicate to the main server, waited too long for the drinks and food. The food (Pork Chop with cabbage)was not carefully prepared or designed...meat too dry, entrée not having a good mix of sides, not good complimentary flavors. Will not go back.
