Absolutely beautiful decor and ambiance. The food was divine; creative twists on classic dishes. If you're with a group definitely get the donuts... our group of 4 had to cut the last piece in quarters! The only complaint I have is the waitress asked if my friend wanted avocado with her dish but failed to tell us that it would be an extra $3!

We enjoyed our dinner at Sepentine from predinner cocktails to dessert. We dined early as we were seeing a play a few blocks away. We had a leisurely dinner and fully enjoyed our meals. The cuisine is thoughtfully created, plated beautifully and delicious. My husband enjoyed the mussels starter and the pork chop and I enjoyed the cauliflower soup and the scallops. We shared the bread pudding with berry compote. Our server was attentive as were other servers. All in all, an enjoyable experience. We’ll be back.

I loved this place. The drinks were strong, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was cozy. I personally loved how accommodating they were to my allergies. We came for Restaurant Week and they did not disappoint. The bread pudding alone would hands down bring me back.

Most disappointing meal I’ve had in SF. Chef had a real hard time figuring out seasonings: real heavy handed when it came to the cinnamon in my cocktail and the smoked paprika/cayenne in the beef shank sauce but then nowhere to be found for the cauliflower soup. The bread pudding was terrible, I don’t know how anyone screws up biscuits that badly, and the presentation was horrifying. To top it off the tables are too close together, and the restaurant was so loud, I couldn’t hear the person sitting across from me. Never going back.

I had the Ahi Tuna and it was fantastic. Their Pimm's Cup is also perhaps the best I've ever had. My brunch date was having trouble handling the spiciness of her bloody mary, and they brought her a new one. The acoustics of the space result in it being pretty noisy, but I would gladly go back any time. Hope to try some more things on the menu!

My son and I had a good weekend brunch there. We arrived very early to our reservation and they were able to seat us without too much of a wait. I loved the variety and options, and the donut appetizers. (Who doesn't love donuts as a brunch appetizer??!?) It was crowded and a bit loud but a good dining experience overall.

Went for brunch & had reservation. Several walk-ins waited 20-30 minutes at height of brunch time. Ambiance is cool, trendy but food was just ok, but nothing I would wait 30 minutes for.

The service was absolutely fantastic. The waitress was extremely amiable and knowledgeable and answered any and all questions we had about the food. The food itself was flavorful and o so perfectly cooked. The beef shank melted in your mouth, the scallops hit you upside the face with their flavor, and the fried chicken was tender and soft with the perfect glazed crunch on the outside. The piece de resistance here however are the cocktails. Every single one was absolute perfection, quite possibly the best cocktails I've ever had. The desserts were also quite amazing and flavorful. Overall would highly recommend and will definitely be coming again.

This restaurant located in my favorite area-dogpatch. I actually found this place accidentally. Once me and my friend were trying to go to aina which is so popular and we have to wait 2 hours for brunch. We were so hungry so I said lets find somewhere else. Then we walked to Serpentine, and found there's not many people here. But the restaurant looks so cute, so we decided to eat here. Then we were amazed by the great food! I've been a little bit selfish about this place, cuz I don't want it to be so popular so that I don't have to wait in the line for brunch. But the food here is really amazing tho, I still want to share this with every one else!

Menu in the restaurant was different from online (not the latest), and food was rather bland. Service wasn't very friendly, and even though the restaurant was almost empty they seemed annoyed that we were still sitting there (at 8:45pm) when our reservation was at 6:45pm.

The tables are very close together although the maitre d did a great job of finding us a slightly more private table. The noise level is very high so it's kind of hard to talk. The menu is small but the food was very good.
