Management should really address the bad attitude and poor control of the 2 guys at the reception assigning tables and checking reservations. The rest of experience at restaurant was fine.

The food was great but the service was horrid! Soup brought with no spoon, it was cold by the time we could find someone to get one. Our waiter just disappeared ! I was getting ready to put his picture on a milk carton when he finally showed up. We sat there a half hour with dirty plates on the table waiting for a check. My birthday dinner kinda sucked, but the food and company were great. Too many restaurant choices in SF to put up with poor service

I think her name was Jessica? She was awesome!!!! Told us updates if anything was late and checking up on us constantly. When I go there again, I'd choose her to be our waitress again!

reservation was at 830pm did not seat us until 9pm, they had everyone waiting in a small crowded wait area, not ideal to be for a valentines day dinner, plus people coming in and out smelling like cigerettes and marijuana. If your going to have people wait at least have better organization where people can wait.
The fixed dinner menu was way overpriced, for example 40$ for salmon plate??? Overall the servers were rushing did not satisfy our craving. 2stars

We went there for valentine's day late lunch, and We ordered the stakes and frites,
The meat was dry and burnt, like it was reheated.
The meat was not a stakes, it was some round think cut in slices.
The creme Brule and coffee was not to standard.
The Sonoma Merlot was good.
The view was nice.

The place was pretty average, the food was pretty average - overall the restaurant was average

make sure you check your bill — they add a surcharge to your bill to cover some socialism program in San Francisco for their Illegals

I don’t come here that often, but i feel like the prices have gone up quite a bit. All entrees were above 30$. Usually when more between 22-30, i like to Enjoy appetizers as well. That’s what i remember. Not this time.

The location is wonderful but the service not so much. Once we got seated, no one helped us until about 15 mins in, it was not busy. Once we got our order in, the waiter was never seen again, we got a new person without any notice. The instructions were not followed with our food, but it was still good. I would probably not come back again because of the service.

The reservation experience was especially accommodating and friendly and we were seated immediately upon arrival. Our server was especially friendly, knowledgeable and made excellent suggestions. She made us feel so welcome and delivered our entire order for eight people quickly and perfectly! We always visit McCormick & Kuletos when visiting San Francisco, and tonight exceeded our expectations!

NOT IMPRESSED. I took several clients here for what I thought was going to be a nice dinner. The service was absolutely horrible. The food was average. The location and view are tremendous. When we ordered wine, it took over 20 minutes to get it to the table. The food was even slower. One guest was even going to the bar to get his cocktail because the waiter was either ignoring him or completely forgot. Quite honestly it was the worst restaurant experience in quite sometime. There are too many good choices in SF to willingly allow anyone to go through what our group did.

Have been numerous times to this
Restaurant. Usually a lovely experience. Not this time.
Brought business associates, made res. Weeks in advance. Asked for an area so we could talk. When greeted we were told by a young man with an eye patch that the seating we wanted isnt available. He said table upstairs. They were going to put 4 large men and a lady at a make shift 48 inch round.....he said that is your table or wait in a very kurt tone. We insisted they give us at least a large booth. They were NOT pleasant or happy. Got a new server and waited forever for all we ordered. Its a shame that once a place is on a must see list in a city, their attitude is all about them not their guests. Go to a small local eatery. They treat you right....

We arrived on time, ordered right away, server brought water 5 min later, 15 min they brought bread, waited 35 min before our cocktails arrived. Mentioned to the manager and our entrees arrived, we waited a total of 55-60 for entrees.
Worst service I’ve ever experienced. The restaurant wasn’t that busy midday, server never said a word. Have to say manager did comp our drinks though.

We have dined here in the past and really enjoyed it, however this time was total opposite experience! Our reservation was at 7:00 pm, we were promptly seated at 7:01 , our server did not great our table until 7:22, he had an attitude from the start , most unpleasant experience!!! We received our drinks @7:46!!!! We didn’t receive our food until 8:43!!! Service was horrible and food was even worse, nobody finished there dishes and we were all starving, we ended up back at our hotel and ordered room service that blew away what we were served at dinner. We will never dine here again !!! Don’t waste your time or money. To many great restaurants in the area to waste your time here!!!

We were very disappointed with our dining experience here. We were seated at a table where we could not sit across from each other, it forced us to look directly at the tables across from us eating and chatting. The waiter seemed like he did not want to be bothered and the food was not worth the time. $200.00 for flavorless crab dip and veggies that we could have been served at Applebees.

Even though we were there for a special occasion (birthday celebration) and indicated this during the reservation, the staff claimed they were unaware of this. Moreover, despite being told about this during checkin, they did nothing. Despite the good food and great view I no longer recommend this restaurant due to poor service
