Food came out at different times leading to awkwardness at the table. One meal came out a full 10 minutes before the other two.

We come here often for dinner, and have been for brunch twice. Just a great brunch menu and great environment. The staff is great. Just a great reboot in the Mission!

We had a nice dinner at Luna American Brasserie after a LONG day of sightseeing around San Francisco. We like trying local neighbor spots in the cities and towns we visit and Luna's Open Table description seemed to fit the bill. Overall we had a nice dinner with good service. We both had the hamburger, one with fries and the other with the salad. We shared our sides and everything was excellent. We had 2 cocktails, one Manhattan on the rocks and a Margarita. My husband was not pleased with the Margarita as it was rather tart and didn't arrive with the requested salt rim. Overall, I'd recommend Luna AB as a nice neighborhood spot with a good menu selection.

Saturday brunch was delicious. Weather was cold so bundle up if you are eating outside. Chicken and waffles were yummy. Monte Cristo was not battered so it was not as heavy, but bread was super crispy on the outside.

Everything was delicious - the pork chops, the bavette steak, and especially the mushroom flatbread. The latter surprised me!

The mac and cheese was great. We ate it for appetizer, and it wasn't too filling. We also loved the bone marrow, and the burger and fries! The service was wonderful. Great energy in this place!

The mains were hot and delicious. There were a few items that we were told were gluten free but clearly were not (the fried tofu, the burrata.) The wines by the glass were few and not very good, they did not stand up well to the food which was disappointing. The service was very good, friendly.

Felt like a Luna fix after holiday party - great pick! Staff fabulous as always - shout out to fabulous brother/sister duo Mitchel and Beverly! Excellent new winter beet salad with just the right mix of enticing tidbits. Pork chops grilled to perfection. Solid bottle of Pinot Noir.

Would still love to see the Wine List expanded - good picks but regulars like to try new vintages! Maybe we ought to try more cocktail choices - bartenders are also talented, fun and friendly.

Great place to stop in for a holiday boost!

We sat down at 8pm, we haven’t even gotten our food and they told us the kitchen was closing and that if we wanted anything else we would have to order. Also they started putting the chairs up While we were still eating at 9:30.

The ambience was great in that the lighting was nice and subtle. The music was nice and at a nice level for talking. The problem was it was about 50° outside. They insisted on leaving the front door open. I asked if that was necessary for Covid protocol in the city. The answer was no. All the guests that I could see were wearing their coats. I was wearing a scarf too and still cold. The food got cold very quickly. The few bites I took before the chilly breeze blew past my plate was very very yummy and great quality. It’s a shame they couldn’t just shut the front door. I asked to sit outside thinking it would be warmer because there’s heaters out there but since my reservation for inside that was not an option which was fine. I didn’t expect it to be warmer outside than it was inside. Really great food though so this isn’t necessarily a negative review

Food offerings were delicious and server/team was attentive. Sat outside, and the street was closed for through traffic so noise level was minimal and we could hear each other at our table while conversing.

I don't remotely get it. The place is loud, the door is open and drafty, welcoming for the clouds of marijuana smoke that waft in from Valencia Street, and the food is absolutely mediocre. The harried service was... tolerable. The hostess was cold, bordering on rude, and lifted not a finger to give us a table away from the door. Our server was, thankfully, better, and worked hard to handle his many tables.

The salads were large and flavorful; the main courses were acceptable -- though mostly uninspired. (The butternut squash risotto was a quite good exception.) The dessert was, in the case of the chocolate opera cake, beyond boring, honestly nearly devoid of taste -- why waste the carb sins on this? -- and in the case of the poached pear cobbler, cloyingly sweet.

I will say the place offers large portions. If only the flavors were better and the ambience was something that allowed you to you relax and enjoy. To be candid, I can't imagine the circumstances that would drag us back.

Very noisy, desperate need for more servers ( poor servers are way overwhelmed and have no time to answer questions or even get the food right ! ). Had to ask for sugar five times before I got and ordered whafles with no bacon and 45 mins later got it with bacon !!

That’s a really poor table for five- more like a bar for two or three. When you can only fit mains in a single row - with no space for people to face each other- whoever thought they’d maximize revenue at the cost of customers actually enjoying their food was wrong. You just lost five customers.

When I’m not reviewing the food, service or the hard working people behind the scenes, something’s terribly wrong front of house.

My son’s birthday, it turned out to be a good choice because of the youthful energy about the place. From an aesthetic point of view, lighting could be improved and it needs a facelift/freshening. Food was very good, service was excellent.

We were seated 25 minutes late at an outdoor table despite booking an indoor table. What’s the point of having a reservation? A little wait is fine, but 25 minutes is not okay. All of the staff were very nice. Food was cooked well but not amazing.

The food was very delicious and lots of healthy items on the menu. Provide indoor and outdoor dining. I do recommend that servers undergo a cultural training to be able to receive all cultural background ethnicity customers with respect and provide the same quality of customer service. This lacked with the server we had. Our evening at Luna was very unpleasant except for the quality of the foold.

The dining room does not scream fine dining. But the Chef does! Food was creative and perfectly done. American classics. Duck Breast served unsliced was a highlight. New head of the bar was attentive and had both creative cocktails and traditional cocktails under control. Will be back for the food and drinks.
