Four of us had dinner at Serpentine. We loved it. Every plate was interesting, well prepared and well presented. The cocktail and wine menus were quite good. The wait staff were helpful without hovering. The non-meat eaters had plenty to choose from; on the other hand, one of us enjoyed the hamburger. Early evening parking was easy. Noise level was within reasonable bounds. The desert menu was varied, all of it tasty. Pricing was reasonable and a good value. We'll be back.

The service was good but the food wasn´t extraordinary.
In our opinion it is very expensive in relation with the quality of the food, the short rib was very bad.

Pleasant surroundings and okay food. Busboy needs training. Three of us finished our salad. Busboy cleared our plates and then hovered while our guest finished his. When we finished our meal Busboy came to clear and he put everyones silverware on my plate then stacked everyones plates in front of our guest before picking them up. We wont go back.

First Sunday brunch. Made a reservation and were seated promptly despite the crowd.
Server was quick to take orders for drinks, being water and take food order.
Food came out shockingly fast. I had the soft scramble and my dining partner has fried chicken sandwich
Soft scramble was a bit too “soft”, verging on raw. I had to mix it up a bit to let the residual heat firm up the runny bits. All of that aside it was virtually tastelessness. No taste of the mushrooms, charred lemon or the manchego cheese. The frisée leaves had a nice, bright dressing that helped but I had to use more S&P than I remember doing in a very long time. The slice of slightly warm bread was delicious but would have been even better with a bit of butter (it was “dry”)
I did not try it but my friend seemed to thoroughly enjoy the open-face fried chicken sandwich. He ate every bit with the exception of a few of the nice, crispy, SEASONED fries that I nabbed off his plate.
Dogpatch Pimm’s and then IPA were great.
All said, for what we got in think $80+ is a bit steep, even for San Francisco.

Food was delicious . Service was slow and impersonal. Food arrived at different times and service staff seemed confused. Disappointing experience. Management seems lacking or something went wrong.

Great service, good food and nice environment, plus it’s close to home and fairly easy to find parking after 8. Still busy at 8pm on a Thursday night, so they must be doing something right! Brussels sprouts, a dozen oysters and fried chicken were our choices for the night . I haven’t been in years so I was surprised at how it had evolved. Thumbs up!!

We had a good time, just the space get drafty with all those windows. My friend couldn't keep warm enough, and that was somewhat of an issue. So... heat the place. ;-)

Been a neighborhood regular for years and had a pretty lackluster lunch today; donuts cold and tough, salad unloved and awful bruised lettuce on burger; fries anemic and service a bit flat. What happened Serpentine?Bad day perhaps.

I was very disappointed in Serpentine. I might believe the poor service was a one-off but a friend had had the same server and the same bad experience before. And the food was just OK. There was nothing that really stood out as something I must have again. As a neighborhood restaurant, it's probably OK but it's definitely not a destination.

Everyone who works there is just so sweet and accommodating which is rare to see in SF. The food is really great, and they're always willing to help make things vegetarian or Gluten free, the truffle fries are to die for (a must accompaniment to any meal) and both brunch and dinner are fantastic, great fresh ingredients and creative dishes.

Extremely mediocre food at a high price point. I ate light: the truffled cauliflower bisque which had absolutely no flavor - the chef seemed to have forgotten salt and spices altogether. And, a little gem salad, which tasted more like a Caesar. Again, very sub-par. I had expected good food, even great, given the reviews. If you care about food quality and have high expectations, avoid.

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.

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.
