We tried half the items on the menu and everything was excellent. One of the best restaurants in San Francisco especially when you consider that it's reasonably priced for what you get. The staff was also very friendly and provided great service. Highly recommend!

Surprisingly for me, I found the flavors at Son's Addition to be too intense. The salads and vegetables had too much dressing on them. The broth for the seafood stew was too salty. On a positive note, our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable, and quick. My friend and I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere.

Brought two friends, one visiting from New York. They were blown away by the creativity of dishes like Uni Tostada and the sheer deliciousness of the Hamachi Collar. We had a trio of unfiltered white wine pairings the wait staff picked out for us. Followed by fresh chocolate chip cookies with a bit of sea salt, yum. Exceptional, precise, and delicious food!

Chef Nick really knows what he is doing and puts together flavors and textures in a most beautiful way.
The service is warm, inviting and efficient. This is my favorite kind of restaurant, where the owners toil away putting in real investment in making a great experience for you - because it's theirs.

Met a friend there early and for a while it was easy to talk. My burger was delicious. Wine a little pricey for the amount served. But a pleasant place on 24th which can be a bit grungy

I've walked past this place a bunch of times and finally made a reservation. The service was excellent, and the food was creative. A great spot in the Mission, and easy walking distance from Brava Theatre for a before or after theatre bite.

Funky modern twist. What chefs themselves would eat! So typical of Mission District.

Overall, we enjoyed it but the Hen of the Woods mushrooms and Wagyu Bone Marrow dishes were lacking proper seasoning.

I'd try it again (if I lived in SF) with a change of the menu.

Beautiful lighting, great space, warm service, fantastic food, all set in the heart of 24th street. I recommend getting the malted waffles with the chicken burger or the biscuits and gravy. Really any other item will do as long as your getting those waffles. Definitely coming again.

Really enjoyed our brunch at Son's Addition before heading to see Phantom of the Opera at the Orpheum last weekend. The small bites were really good as was my burger and my GF's Benedict...perfectly poached eggs and the burger had an amazing fried onion and bacon marmalade that I could just use to top everything I love to eat.

this was my second time here and we enjoyed it. The food was very good, the service was very attentive.
We started with the poached chicken and panetella. Both were very good. The poached chicken was pretty spicy, but tasty. We then had the pork and burger. My partner said the burger was one of the best he's had. The pork was very tasty, a very big serving. I had enough to bring home. The service was very attentive and friendly. All in all a very good experience.
