    We went on a Monday for a birthday celebration. I think we ate everything on the menu and there was nothing I wouldn’t order again. The guys working own the place and they really put 100% into every interaction. The drinks, service, food, atmosphere, EVERYTHING was incredible. We will be back very soon!

    Came here on a Tuesday night and got a nice surprise with live music. We shared a bunch of appetizers and enjoyed the full drink menu.

    Went for brunch. They were out of bread pudding, bacon, and brioche bun. Who runs out of bacon at brunch?!?!

    Outstanding beer selection, reliably delicious food, and great service. Usually easy to snag a seat at the bar for full dining service if you don't have a reservation. A neighborhood favorite.

    whoa. yellowtail was way too "fishy" tasting and the so-called Pastrami shortribs were uh fatty pastrami. Both were $30. Robbery. Gave our feedback to bartender (we were sitting at the bar) and he didn't make any effort to "make it right." Won't be back. Dining room was pretty...parking awful in the neighborhood.

    Drinks were good. Menu is limited. One person didn't like the pork. The other thought the pastrami short ribs were fatty and not a value. The burger was good. While very energetic it's not really a 30 dollar entree type place - much more casual than that. Stick with the burger and a cocktail or beer.

    Lovely, cozy space with a small but well thought out beer selection. The food is also very good; The entrees may seem a bit pricy for a gastropub, but for any foodies are comparable to dishes at Rich Table for complexity and flavor, a rare find in the outer Mission/Bernal. If you're looking for tasty snacks, great cocktails, and beer in the neighborhood, then I'd highly recommend this place.

    Was hoping for the food to be really great considering the restaurant won a recent award for best new restaurant in SF. I found the appetizers to be much better than the entrees and the food overall was a little oversalted for my palette. The mandarin beer I had was great though! Staff was also very friendly.
