Really lovely restaurant with interesting (without being too fussy) and delicious food. One particular dish was the bone marrow, recommend it if it’s on the menu!

Loved Sons Addition. Food was very tasty. Had the corned beef and Brussels sprout has with a side salad. Has had a little kick. Side salad was lightly dressed and very fresh. More reasonably priced than some of the other brunch options in the Mission.

Definitely will go back!

GREAT food. Our waitress was a little off, like every time we asked for something it was confusing to her, but I think that was a one off. The host staff and literally anyone else who visited our table was warm and professional. Not too crowded, beautiful ambiance. Will be back and will recommend!

We picked Son's Addition as a late Valentine's Day dinner because who needs social norms. We went on a Saturday, making reservations a few days before with ease. We were excited by the online menu, and the pricing felt quite reasonable, so we came with high expectations. We were not disappointed. We ordered the Bacon Kimchi Deviled Eggs, which were delicious, but slightly too salty for both of our taste. Our host and server were thoughtful, attentive, and friendly in the extreme. Next came the Bone Marrow, which was absolutely incredible. The dishes were spaced out well and the meal had a nice flow to it. The ambiance in the restaurant was quite pleasant... excellent for a date. The music was a little loud at times but overall the volume was pleasant. Our third dish was the Poached Chicken and Crispy Skin... which was an explosion of different and distinct flavors. It was intense and absolutely delicious. 10/10 would order again. Very intriguing flavor combinations. We finished our meal with the Broiled Yellowtail Collar. This was my favorite dish of the meal by far. The flavor of the fish and the accompanying tastes to complement were perfectly executed. For dessert, we ordered the Apple Huckleberry Crumble. It was a dessert made in heaven, and I would go back just for that. It was the perfect way to cap off a delicious meal. One starter, three small plates, and a dessert was the perfect amount of food for a pair to leave full. This is an excellent, affordable place to eat, and is wonderful for a romantic night out. Staff is friendly and service is expert. The only hiccup was when my partner asked for no cilantro or as little as possible, as the menu was generally heavy on cilantro. The first dish was customized to order, but the no cilantro request was lost in translation for the following dishes. Despite this, we had a wonderful evening and appreciate the restaurant and its staff very much. Great dinner spot.

Asian waitress on feb 15 needs to be trained on better welcoming guests and being useful. She is a Disservice.

Owner needs to be more food and delivery focused than Unnecessary socializing with irrelevant patrons.

Overall, Still on a rough road. Reminiscent of suburban places that try to be cutting edge.

It does not work.

Good brunch spot - overall yummy. Took reservations which is awesome.
Avocado toast very citrus-y and good. Waffles were good.
Biscuits were very good - want more fruit compote!
Breakfast sandwich too salty (and I love salt).

I was very excited to dine at Son's Addition, as I'd heard great reviews and had wanted to go for a long time. The food was great, but the service was absolutely terrible. All appetizers were taken from our table with half the food still on them - this is after telling the wait staff twice that we were still working. I assumed they were rushing the plates off because our entrees were ready - no, we then waited 20 minutes until our food came. We ordered a bottle of wine, a red which was served to us quite warm. Not the end of the world, but I asked if they could chill the bottle for a few minutes. They completely forgot about the bottle, asking us if we'd like to order more wine 3 times throughout the dinner. Really took away from the great food experience, certainly not worth the price.

I ate here twice over a ten day period...I found them due to Restaurant Week...had never heard of the restaurant and after checking out the menu for Restaurant Week decided to go and loved it...went back a week later again and it is now on our regular list of places in the Mission.....great food, attentive staff, a bit loud after 7pm but manageable by going earlier! Thanks!

I had dinner at Son's Addition during SF Restaurant Week and was disappointed to see that the prix fixe menu did not highlight their best known dishes. The best dish I had all evening was an espresso shot-sized cup of roasted squash and pumpkin soup that was given to each customer participating in SF Restaurant week.

For my first course, I had the broccoli that was roasted perfectly and each bite was full of flavor. I highly suggest the restaurant adding this to their menu as it would be big hit. I chose the ribollita for my second course because it was the only pescatarian friendly option and do not recommend this. I'm glad this isn't on their dinner menu. It was bland and mushy all around, even the croutons that were supposed to add a different texture. I was excited for my third course - toasted coconut flan for dessert. I always love a silky smooth, and jiggly flan. If this is the flan you like, I'd stay away from this one.

Great food, but seemed understaffed for Sunday brunch. We were seated for nearly 10 minutes before we got menus. Took the server another five minutes to make it to our table. Once the food was ordered, all was well. Very flavorful and well prepared.

Came here for the restaurant week menu with some friends... very accommodating service. They were about 30 minutes late for our reservation, but comp'd us some starters and also kept checking in with us to apologize and make sure we were okay. We got it, things happen, and the service and hospitality was very much appreciated. As for the food, broccoli and ribbolita were delicious. Sourdough bread was good as well as a small bite at the beginning. Deviled eggs, as others have reviewed, are delicious, but have fish sauce, so beware vegetarians. Two in our group got the chocolate sea salt cookies and devoured them, actions speak louder than words.

The food quality was fresh and clean and the flavors were distinguishable. We enjoyed our meal and will definitely be back.

Hamburger & fries were terrific but restaurant week menu was disappointing, considering that the hamburger was less than half of the total & one of the two desserts was a cookie.

Here for the first time during restaurant week...fabulous menu but more importantly the food was amazing. Fresh, innovative and delicious. The Roasted Broccoli and Friends and the Ribolitta were wonderful!!! Nice staff, good but slightly slow service (to be fair they were really busy)....a new place on my go to list!

Food was overly salty for my preference. Their toast had a strong bacon flavor even though they claimed not to use bacon fat when toasting it. (Tough for vegetarian diners) Servers were pleasant and it had a nice ambiance for friends get together.

The food was delicious! Perfectly cooked octopus, poached chicken, best bone marrow I’ve tasted (most places over-salt it; at Son’s Addition it was perfectly seasoned), great chicken liver mousse. Apparently they make their own authentic kimchi and pickles - absolute delight. The bartender / waitress, Anne makes great wine-based cocktails and was flexible to accommodate “less sweet” (vermouth + champagne + tiny bit of ginger syrup is now my favorite combo!)

Food and drinks were all good but not amazing. The burger was a little too salty and the fries did not taste fresh. We ordered some small plates as well - I would recommend the beet panzanella salad - they are a good choice if you don't want to eat just one flavour. They have wine and beer, fairly limited menu, but you can definitely find something you'll like. Service was okay and overall I wasn't disappointed but I think there are better places to eat in the Mission.
