Always a treat!!! Excellent food. Excellent service. We will continue to visit whenever in the city.
The problem was the service. There was one waitperson. The food is good and the price ok.
We had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant! We would definitely go back!
Love the food, but ambience can be hit or miss based on the noise level. We took my mom for a birthday dinner and we're seated next to a large party. It was so loud that our ears were hurting and we felt like we had to shout or speak into each other's ears to be heard. We have been going to Gold Mirror for years because of the food and traditional, classy service. But the acoustics are not good. Next time, we will go for an off-hour lunch so we can hear ourselves and protect our ears.
This restaurant is are go to after the matinee performance!!!
Delicious food and very friendly service. Only complaint would be took very long for dinner to be served. Would highly recommend for food quality.
Good neighborhood Italian restaurant. Food cooked to perfection. Service was excellent.
Great food. Great server (Max). Close to home - love having a good restaurant in our Parkside neighborhood.
The restaurant staff and food were incredible 💜
Very good Italian food and ambiance. Good for business and personal dining. Good menu selection.
too long re: service between courses, has always been the same since brothers took over, still a very good restuarant.
Charcuterie plate was fantastic.
Also some of the better Saltimbocca I have had in the Bay Area.
Zambaglione was fresh and tasty but needed a few berries to make it great.
Looking forward to a return visit.
The food and bar service at Gold Mirror is always excellent. It's the place to go in this area, nothing else like it. I had the saltimbocca and it is wonderful, best I've ever had. We expect to be back in a couple of weeks for a birthday dinner.
Always fun and good value. Love the special seafood pasta; my family loves the chicken dishes and sausage gnocchi. Always good service and good cocktails too. Only thing I’d change is to add some aioli to the fried calamari, it needs it.
The noise was intolerable. Food delicious
If you do not want to talk with your companions, it is fine. If you want to also enjoy your companions, I would not recommend this place.
Great homestyle Italian food with a full bar and banquet room. Calamari Steak cooked to perfection. Salads and appetizers always fresh! Great for larger parties, but can be a little crowded. Parking can be difficult.
We went for lunch with a friend. The place wasn’t crowded on a weekday at lunchtime. The food was very good and the service was friendly and efficient. Two of us asked for vegetarian options and found them to be excellent. It was the first time we’d had a meal there, but we will certainly go again.
nice surroundings, very noisy, everything ala cart, ( not like the old days)
Great San Francisco family restaurant. Great food and ambiance. Place you will run into friends and neighbors.
We met with friends for a special occasion and had a wonderful time. Max took great care of us, making excellent recommendations and ensuring we had everything we needed. The meal was beautifully prepared and so good! I'll be coming again soon--it's worth the trip from Berkeley.
The waiter and waitress were very attentive. Thank you very much.
Max, our waiter was great. My wife had cannelloni, wonderful. I had the special - Bluenose Butterfish, it was fantastic, just fishy enough so you would know your eating fish, portion was about the size of a lamb shank. My brother-in-law had the Rack of Lamb which was also great, only clean bones on his plate. My wife had a perfect cocktail, brandy manhattan, up, with a splash of vermouth and steered not shaken. All in All a wonderful experience.
Very nice interior, warm. Excellent service and the food was great. Sabayon for desert!
The food is consistently delicious and the service is very good. Been dining at Gold Mirror for years and have always left satisfied.
We had a very good experience and would likely come back. We wished there were more vegetarian options but what we had was delicious. Our service was outstanding! Definitely one of the restaurants best features
The usual excellent food. Noisy, but not unexpected - lively crowd. Service a bit slow.
My friends and I were in the city for 4 days.... of all the food places we wentm yours
was the best, especially for the food, and price value. The food was superb. We would
definitely go back there the next time we are in the city - and of course, highly
recommend it to our friends. Also, I said that since we are a 3 1/2 hr. drive to the
city... (we are retired from bay area) could we please have a window. They reserved
a table for us and very near a window. Thank you so VERY much.
Get there early for a good table. Very romantic and cozy.
Excellent neighborhood Italian. Much better than places priced 30 percent more.
Food is always very good but service was awful. It took over an hour for salads, then entre cane fast, and dessert another half hour. Waitress seemed uninterested. And they added 18% automatic gratuity as we had a large party.
I love that we have this Italian restaurant with decent Italian food in the neighborhood. But, the way the tables are set, it makes the noise level very high. The service can use some help. We were rushed thru the meal.
Took some friends and they loved it. Had Fettucini Alfredo. Veal Parmagiana, Petrale, both broiled & Meuniere, etc.
The service was excellent and everyone's entrees were delicious, our server was attentive I'm definitely coming back soon.
Great place old school SF 50 years the only issues it pretty loud on Saturday nights but other than that the food great service is great suggest to make reservations
The minestrone was lukewarm. We were seated next to a table with a large party - seating was very tight. It was somewhat difficult for my cane using husband to get between the tables as we left.
The Gold Mirror was an outstanding experience! Great food, so authentic and creative. I felt like I was in my Italian grandmother's kitchen. It was so good!!
Old time San Francisco experience with modern quality cuisine.
Old Italian food great service and been going there for 50 years
Classic old San Francisco Italian restaurant...They dont make like this anymore
Won’t be returning.
