As always, amazing food followed by amazing service. Pasta at flour and water is always next level which keeps me coming back for more! Shout out to the awesome playlist as well.
Such a cozy wonderful restaurant; incredible food, great service and a charming atmosphere. Highly recommend!
Brought wife and son for wife's bday. Great referral from friend. Food was great and staff very friendly. We will be back.
Exquisite food in an intimate setting, with excellent service.
We'd had this restaurant on our list for a long time and were excited for our first experience. The halibut crudo and octopus starters were delicious, but pretty common dishes at other similar restaurants. The pizza had the biggest hype and biggest let down. The center of the pizza was soggy and overly chewy. Ingredients were fresh and flavorable, but texture-wise it was a dud. We actually got engaged after the meal, so I will always remember the experience. I gleefully announced we were engaged and our server seemed stunned - no congratulations, no offer to take our photo (thankfully the table next to us offered) - absolutely nothing. Pretty awkward. It didn't kill our happiness of course, but they missed an opportunity. I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone or eat there again. There are way too many AMAZING restaurants to give this place a second thought.
Exceptional service and one of the best meals we have had in the Bay. Every bite was delicious and we will definitely return soon to eat more of the amazing pasta dishes!
Overpriced! The food was mediocre. We paid premium prices for bad food because it was Valentines Day. We will not be going back.
Fixed price menu was fantastic, though a little on the pricey side. Strongly recommended for special dates.
Flour and alter exceeded my expectations. The staff was inviting and knowledgeable about he food and the Italian wine selection.
It’s commonplace in San Francisco to pay a lot for small portions for the sake of creativity or local ingredients. Flour and water balanced this approach so well. I was pleasantly surprised by the portion of our pistachio pesto and rutabaga pasta. The price was on point and we left our meal satiated but not stuffed.
Absolutely delightful. Props to the whole flour and water fam.
A dinner at Flour+Water is always a fabulous evening. The food is creative, original and timeless. The service is warm, helpful and attentive. The atmosphere is cozy and relaxed and also special. They have great wines but (not surprisingly) most are from Italy and I’m not so familiar with wines outside of California. So, we asked our server to help us pick out a wine. It was lovely. Flour+water hits all the high notes perfectly— you can just relax knowing any evening at Flour+Water will be a wonderful evening. The salads and starters are bright and interesting. Of course, the pastas are the stars of the restaurant— they do just melt in you mouth, explosions of flavor, some big and some subtle— each one distinct and wonderful. It’s best to go two couples and share, so you can taste more of them. Also, don’t overlook the pizza— it’s the best pizza in the Bay Area— the crust has just the perfect amount of chew. The only negative about Flour+Water is that it’s quite popular, so even if you are interested in dining late it’s really difficult to get a reservation and if you try to just show up as a walk in you’ll have an exceedingly long wait. It’s best to plan weeks ahead and make a reservation.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Flour + Water is one of my very favorite restaurants in the world. Every time I have the pasta tasting it blows my mind.
Ambiance: Too noisy, loud music for a restaurant, you cannot hear each other.
Food: our food was too salty, don't want to have dinner at this place again
Prices: the prices are too high comparing to the offer
Service was sub-par and the food wasn't much better.
We try and eat at Flour & Water as often as possible. The food is nothing short of stellar and our only frustration is trying to decide if we should order off the regular or pasta tasting menus. The service is friendly and knowledgeable, plus the wine list is solid. Love this place!
Great service and the waiters and waitesses are happy. Food is good.
You will enjoy a special evening there. They won't rush you to finishing your dinner for the next guests.
For the price of the tasting menu (compared to similarly priced menus across the city) the amount of food was relatively small. I would have expected either more courses or larger portions overall. I would not recommend the tasting menu here based on this experience. The food overall was balanced and fresh. The service was not on the same level as other restaurants with similarly priced tasting menus, but I acknowledge the restaurant may have been busier than usual due to restaurant week.
Had 10:30pm reservations during SF Restaurant week and Flour+Water made the most of it!
I highly recommend the beverage pairing with your meal. Will definitely need to go back!
This is F + W's first foray into SF Restaurant Week. It was rocky. The food was top quality, but overwhelming in the pasta department. We enjoyed the salmon with radish as a starter. Then there were 5 plates of pasta. All in oil. No bread. No relief. I just wanted a little arugula or romaine, or maybe some of their famous cauliflower or spinach instead of one of the pasta dish. Maybe next time remove one of the pastas and serve a vegetable. Even the ice cream was served in olive oil. Tartine is just down the road. Maybe they could do some bread for you? It would have been so nice to put the sauces on.
Amazing food. My tastebuds were ALIVE - I won’t forget my meal
