    A very pleasant surprise for our family group of 3 on our first visit to Per Diem. Wonderfully charming ambience and warm lighting, with great wood and leather decor. We loved the service of our waiter (Juan) and the menu was great. We enjoyed everything we ordered, and had a very enjoyable evening. We will definitely return!!

    First time dining here…was a bit disappointed based on other reviews. Took a while to even be recognized that we we waiting at the host stand, and it became clear that even with a 7 pm reservation, it felt like they were closing up for the night. Server/host was nice. Salads were good, entrees were passable….the special of halibut was not a very nice piece of fish…thin and therefore a little over cooked. Carrots as a “roasted vegetable” were no where near cooked….and I like them on the undercooked side, but you need to be able to pierce them with a fork. I would have liked this to be better, but perhaps it caters to a more daytime crowd, being in the financial district?

    First time at this restaurant. We were immediately welcomed by a casually dressed manager maybe. He sat us down at the quaint window seat. Was helpful in recommending cocktails which is what we went for. The cocktails were good. My favorite being a special drink made just for me. Smoky whiskey sour. The kitchen accommodated us by making us the pear and gorgonzola pizza. Isn't wasn't on the happy hour menu. Very nice staff. The place is smaller downstairs then you might think by the pictures but very suitable for drinks. Upstairs had a nice ambiance as well. Will return when we are back in SF
