We went there for Christmas Eve and had an excellent time. The food was excellent, from the small bites to the entrees. Very cool setting.

Went on a Sunday evening and it was on the quiet side - welcome relief from the bustle of Union Square at Christmas. Had a delightful meal with great company. Definitely recommend it to others.

Food was excellent, but a bit pricey. The layout of the restaurant needs some work. our seats faced the back of the bar and walk way to the bathroom...

Good food, great service. Couldn’t ask for more! The Pork chop was delicious and the Brussels sprouts were outstanding. It was a little noisy when we returned for a drink after a show but still good fun and great bartenders.

Had to wait for our table, didn’t check us in on open table ( I got an email) and service was just ok. Our waiter was awkward and forgot our starters- oysters- as he brought salad and left. We had to ask for our oysters as he forgot. Overall just ok

Unusually busy, the noise level was greater than expected, the service was slower than expected, the prices have risen (as in all restaurants) but we still had fun: the food was good, the servers were trying hard, the room seemed positive all around. The pork chops were not as tender as in the past, but portion size and taste was fine. The trout pleased, as did the skirt steak though it was seasoned with a little too much salt. This is the kind of place that maintains its positive vibe, so we'll go back again, even with these disappointments.

We had the Hamachi and the grilled octopus for starters - both were outstanding. My trout was perfectly cooked with a subtle sauce of butter and capers that complimented the fish perfectly. A 10, easily! The sea bass was gloriously grilled.
We had two desserts and the hands-down favorite was the molten lava cake.

We have dined at Maybeck's for several years. We live in Memphis, so we only get to Maybeck's a couple of times a year, which is our loss. This occasion was our 44th wedding anniversary. We were given gracious help by Courtney selcting a red wine and bubbly. We were allowed to share the courses we ordered, and take our time to enjoy a special meal. We shared five dishes. each was very well designed and crafted.

I’m not a red meat eater (usually) but I’m glad I made an exception and went for the Beef Wellington night. Food was great and the service very friendly and prompt. Loved that it was not pretentious and snobbish. I’d go back anytime!!

Felt the appetizer was somewhat smaller this 3rd time around 🤷🏽‍♂️ personally I feel if you’re paying premium prices the dish shouldn’t be 80% potatoes 10% octopus

We went Wednesday to try the Beef Wellington that’s been so heavily promoted. I must say, we were extremely underwhelmed with the quality of the beef Wellington. It was missing one of the key ingredients, Pâté de Foie Gras. No Pate. Just mushrooms. Without the key ingredient the entire flavor profile of the beef Wellington was off. The chef would’ve been better off serving the fillet by itself.

The wines were way overpriced, as was the beef Wellington.

It appeared that there was only one waitress for the entire large restaurant. She was physically and mentally overworked.

We will not return.

First time tonight and it was amazing. The food and service were top notch. It was not too busy for a Sunday night so the noise level was not bad. We got the prawns appetizer, Sunday supper, and linguini with clams-every dish was delicious. I plan on bringing my friend back in the next few weeks. The bar is quite large and they are known for some really tasty cocktails. Cheers

I am never disappointed at Maybeck's. The specials are a great value, the regular menu is always interesting and delicious. I actually look so forward to ending the meal with their wonderfully rich spumoni with its generous mix of fruit. Yes, this is my third visit and plan to return for more ASAP.

Outstanding food and service. As expected, the Wellington was a treat. Our evening was going along very well for the first 45 minutes. At that time, a group of 7-8 women was seated within 15 feet of us, and proceeded to speak/shout very loudly for the next hour. While not particularly young, they were clearly inebriated and were there to celebrate a birthday. While I recognize that this is not always avoidable, particularly with an already crowded restaurant, this group was clearly much louder than any other diners in the room and completely drowned out all other conversations at other tables. I think that San Francisco has become known for very noisy dining, even in the best of restaurants. It is about time that the manager or their representative, develop a reasonable approach to this problem. Perhaps an alternative location or a separate room could have been offered.

The atmosphere is always pleasant and the chef always goes out of his way to walk around the dining rooms and make sure his diners are attended to. Great entrees (especially on Weds) and great cocktails.

We have recommended this restaurant to at least 5 people in the course of 3 days because we had such an amazing experience here! We had two people waiting on us the entire evening, the food was beyond delicious, and the ambiance was exactly what my husband hoped for his birthday! (also, the hot sauce was so good we purchased a bottle on the way out)

We came for the Beef Wellington Wednesday special an we were all well pleased with the quality of the meal and the friendly and efficient service (all five of us). Nice touch with the invitation to the kitchen for The Cutting. We'll definitely be back, and not necessarily just for the BW! Thanks for a fun night (and an excellent Manhattan).

The food and service were outstanding. We had oysters, risotto, linguine, chorizo crusted rockfish, chopped salad, and molten chocolate dessert.My wife and I had the rock fish, oysters and chopped salad. Our friends had oysters, chopped salad, and the pastas. We shared the dessert. We had an alberino wine that was wonderful and fit all those dishes. The staff was terrific. They were clear on their recommendations which we followed. The service was not rushed yet timely. My wife and I appreciated that our shared rock fish was split by the chef.

We arrived at 5:40pm for cocktails and were ready for our 6pm reservation, opening time. Explained to our server that we needed to be finished by 7pm, because we had an event downtown. Appetizers and salads were served quickly. Then we waited nearly a half hour after finishing these for our entrees to be served. We had to ask status since the wait was so long. The beef Wellington specialty was not up to par. The 2 pasta dishes were mediocre. We had to rush through our dinners to leave, and missed dessert. Not our best experience this time.
