The Sauce-Gough team clicks on all cylinders. In all the years of eating here, it has been spot-on perfect, from food to friendliness of the staff. THANKS SAUCE-GOUGH!!!
This is our new go to place for before the symphony. Very nice staff, terrific food, reasonably priced. A gem of a restaurant in a safe nad comfortable neighborhood. Healthy walk to Davies Symphony Hall, but that's perfect for an after-dinner wake up! Loved the wild boar pasta, the brussell sprouts leaf salad, and the chicken cutlet. S'mores are delish for dessert - get two orders!
first time at Sauce:Gough. caught an earlier dinner prior to performance at Orpheum and timing, service made for an easy exit. Expected a little more from the Mac&Cheese, and should have opted for the bacon wrapped mini meatloaf, but thought the Vegetarian Strudel was just fantastic (high praise coming from a carnivore).
Great time. Thank you
Great pre-theater spot. Good food, friendly staff.
It is hard to find good vegetarian alternatives in a lot of restaurants serving the pre concert crowd around Hayes Valley/Civic Center. Sauce has a wonderful vegetables in filo dough menu item, as well as great salad options. Perhaps some other items could be served sans bacon, or the like. Will definitely go back.
Definitely not what it used to be. Food was not exciting and bland. For the same price I could have had a far better meal at a number of other restaurants in the vecinity. Just okay overpriced (as opposed to expensive) food with outdated surroundings which feel like a chain hotel diner is not a good dining experience.
First Date somehow lasted 4 hrs and never once did the staff try to rush us out. Made a great first date even better
Good location for theater. Great food and good service with a nice wine list.
My sister and I have been going to Sauce before symphony concerts once every year or two for quite a few years. It seems to both of us that the menu has become more limited over the years, without much sense of choice available. Our food was good, not great. Noise level was high, and we had trouble hearing each other (keep in mind that neither of us has as acute hearing as we once did). Our server was lovely.
We were going to the Symphony & wanted to try Sauce. Fantastic! They understand people needing to get done in time for the show, the food was hearty & delicious& the waitress couldn’t have been better. We had the broccoli leaves salad, the Cesar, chicken Parmesan & mini meatloaf. Incredible!! And tater tots are divine!
Another pre-performance dinner at Sauce, where the modern takes on American comfort food stand out. The restaurant got very packed but the service never let up; the tater tots, beet salad, salmon and chicken were all wonderful; interesting wine list. Great desserts. Wonderful to have in the neighborhood and great pre-post performance option.
A favorite for late night dining, 10 PM dinner. Cozy neighborhood feel. We splurged on ribeye for two. Extremely tasty, cut in strips, smothered in button mushrooms. Sides also excellent, tender asparagus cooked lightly and cheddar mashed potatoes. Cline wine, a red blend, not my favorite and pricey. I've had much better Cline estate wines, much heavier and richer. Service attentive without being obtrusive.
Nice environment for a special night out. The service was good, but know that if you're going to see a nearby show or performance that you should plan for over an hour for meal time. The food was very good quality, but I would say the portions are definitely on the smaller side.
Small plates interesting and excellent
