I was very excited about coming to Tartine for dinner. Straight away ordered the bread & butter and then our server walked us through the menu, which was helpful because not completely self explanatory. We ordered the white bean dip & nduja, both of which, along with everything else in that section, he explained came on bread. Not true. The nduja did come on a dark rye but the dip came in a bowl, with nothing to eat it with. No matter, he said he’d bring more bread but then basically brought out another full order of the very thick cut bread & butter we’d already consumed! And not “on the house.” How else are you meant to eat the dip?? Why didn’t he explain that when we ordered it? Why doesn’t the dip just come with some easier to eat pieces of bread, like the nduja? In the end, the bread was too filling; we had to cancel one of our dishes which he tried to make us feel guilty about.
On the flip side, the potato soup and the carrot salad were tasty. Would I go back tho? Probably not.
Incredible meal—innovative, delicious, memorable. Highlights: the beef tartare, bone marrow, asparagus, and tagliatelle. (Each of those is much more interesting than it sounds in my words.)
Very cool urban environment with uniquely and creatively prepared dishes. Food was excellent and unusual, but not weird. Exceptional care with taste and texture combinations of the food elements. Very nice surprise to happen upon in what I assumed to be a "non-foody" neighborhood. Boy was I wrong. I will be back!
Amazing food as always. Fresh, local flavor.
Delicious and creative food with a very cool ambiance
My favorite thing about coming here is leaving excited and inspired to try new things at home. Go during the day and watch the bread making in action!
Chicken was overcooked and dry.
I can't wait to return! The food was innovative and delicious, the bread is to die for and the service was warm and excellent. The passion of the kitchen comes through in multiple layers, in a casual and inviting setting.
Everything was delicious
The savory options were wonderful. It is really all about the bread! We kept ordering extra bread to mop up all the delicious sauces in each of the dishes. Only disappointment was dessert... how can Tartine do dessert wrong??? There was tres leches, no thank you, chocolate cake which we ordered but was mediocre, a peanut butter and jelly option.. WHY??? That's what I had to eat for lunch in grade school. No upscale restaurant should have peanut butter in their desserts and last but not least chocolate and vanilla ice cream which we ordered late because the cake needed it, but the vanilla was truly awful tasting. Why not add some lovely tarts or pastries to the dessert menu? Please!
We live in the neighborhood and have been coming here since they opened.
I will not be coming back. Only for pastries and treats.
The dinner was a disappointment.
The chicken was room temperature along with the Brussels sprouts. It was like everything was pre-cooked.
My wife’s scallops were raw in the middle and her dinner plate was cold also.
I guess their relying on reputation.
First, I have to say that I came to dinner at Tartine already convinced that I would love it. I have been learning to make my own sourdough using the Tartine Bread book as a guide for years, and coming to the restaurant was a kind of pilgrimage. It did not disappoint me. The bread was perfectly crunchy on the outside and moist and fluffy on the inside and served with delightfully salted butter - my only complaint was that there wasn't more. Each dish was balanced and delicious. My favorite was sunchoke, maitake mushroom, and chestnut - a vegan dish with a creamy chestnut base and perfectly seasoned and crunchy sunchokes. The service was fantastic - our waitress was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was an absolutely incredible night of food that I can't recommend enough.
The food was lacking. A little salt and peeper would be helpful. The ribs were terrible.
We had very high expectations for this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The service was helpful, but never intrusive. The is unique, beautifully presented and delicious. We were a large group and ordered multiple items. Every single dish was wonderful. The ambience is energetic and fun. A great place for friends to gather. An especially good location if you're headed to a performance at Noh Space or Project Artaud.
It was a very pleasant restaurant. Casual yet upbeat. Great industrial looking decor.
It was hard to figure out what to order. Without the help of pictures from yelp, it’s hard to know what a particular dish is.
Food was great, although somewhat pricey. But not enough to deter me from going back.
Nice place for a date or to meet with friends.
i got great experience at tartine, the place is beautiful, great atmosphere, great service and over all the food is tastey and the s.f lager was a good companion. highly recommend!
was a very uneven experience- first courses were very strong, esp the avocado toast and pickled cabbage. entrees were very uneven, some had huge portions others very small ones- tasty but was missing a wow factor- for the price.
Disappointing. I’m a long fan of Tartine so took friends from out of town here Sat night. The wait staff seemed all very young, timid, unclear and useless. A mouse ran under our table while we were eating so we mentioned it to the staff only to be brushed off. :( Bathrooms were also a mess. Sad. Won’t come back.
Had a wonderful dinner! Our waiter was awesome and the atmosphere is fun. The food was wonderful, so interesting and delicious. My ONLY complaint is they do not include bread even with buratta or dips made for bread. They make you buy it for $5.00 and it’s not very much. Why don’t they just include it in the price of the appetizers? The only negative but enough to make an impact. Otherwise we would recommend this restaurant especially the rigatoni which was outstanding.
Very nice ambiance, I sat at the bar and just watched the activity of the restaurant from there. Good wine selection, and I ordered the halibut crudo, which was delicious, and elegantly plated.
Great service, food, atmosphere! Happy!
Tartine was OUTSTANDING!! Upon the recommendation of a trusted foodie-friend, I was already going in with high expectations and this place definitely lived up to it! We enjoyed a lovely assortment of small plates and all of us had our favorite dishes. Both bread dishes were incredible and the bean hummus, burrata/pistachio dish salad, and the bone broth soup were all top notch. The atmosphere was clean, trendy, and very comfortable. Nice ambiance and good crowd. Excellent service too and delightful wine list. We were visiting from out of town and after raving to our wonderful host about how great the meal was but how sad we were that we didn't live closer, she informed us that LA would also be opening a Tartine Manufactory soon and I CAN'T WAIT!!! Thank you for a great meal and experience, looking forward to dining at the SoCal soon.
The blood orange sorbet is one of the best sorbets I’ve ever had.
Our waitress was wonderful. Attentive. Responsive. Helpful. And so kind.
Tartine was definitely disappointing. I tend to write good reviews--and am sorry this isn't the case. The best part of the meal was the flat bread and the dessert. The chicken was dry, the small plates were very small and generally were not so good--and expensive for what was offered. The four of us came relatively early and were seated in a quiet section of the the restaurant so were able to talk easily. We will not be returning for dinner.
Good food but restaurant service made us feel rushed.
Most of our food came within minutes of ordering, with no phasing of mains and appetizers. We bought a bottle of sparkling wine, and they filled our glasses up to the brim as if to reduce the number of times they would have to come back and service us. Then they brought us our bill before we asked for it.
We spent $230 for three people, and were in and out in little more than an hour. When I go out with a couple of friends and drop over $75 per person, I expect the service staff to make me feel welcome and not like they would like me to leave as soon as possible.
We were recommended by a friend to try this place, it was my birthday and was in town visiting. We had a reso and was put at the very back in the bakery... asked to be moved as there were 3 empty tables and the hostess was very rude to my mom, before my mom was even finished talking the hostess said enjoy your food and walked away, wasn’t to impressed. I do have to say our server was great and the food was very good
Fabulous food. Very innovative
The food was phenomenal. We had a sampling from all parts of the menu and enjoyed each and every dish tremendously!
Wines by the glass list is terrible. Mushroom terrine and pork ribs excellent. Citrus salad overpriced as were the scallops. Waitress Emily is fantastic.
Food was great, though noise level was very high.
Very nice dinner, the food amazing
Outstanding food, unfortunately overshadowed by inattentive services that was at times pretentious to boot. As for value, charging $5 for bread and butter, even bread this good, seems a bit much.
Separate from that, the food is outstanding and the ambience is fun. It’s a shame such a top notch place is held back by service that could be so much better if only it was frequent... and, dare we ask? Friendly?
One of the best meal I've ever had. The smell of bread when entering is intoxicating.
Go with the waiter's recommendations, they are spot on.
God food and pleasant efficient service
The service was a bit haphazard. Our server seemed confused when we asked to order an extra dish. More importantly, I had called the restaurant to arrange for a surprise dessert for my parents’ anniversary. We specifically had requested not to be presented with a dessert menu. But the server came up and asked if we wanted dessert. I declined thinking the surprise was on the way. But nothing came, which put an awkward end to a great evening.
Great space, airy and modern. The food was delicious with a few familiar dishes from the Valencia location. Highly recommend to make a reservation.
I rarely walk out of a restaurant, but this was a terrible experience. Upon arrival at the door, no one was manning the host stand to check off our reservation. An employee who was sweeping the floor finally sat us, but the table was dirty, so we asked her to move us to another.
The waiter in our section ignored us, and only placed water on the table after 10 minutes, only to run off to other tables. He continued to visit these tables, and we sat for a full 15 minutes of him with no acknowledgement whatsoever.
Finally we stood up and left. Neighboring customers looked aghast and sympathetic at us, and that was the only thing that seemed to alert the waiter. He came up to us on the way out, and said "sorry, blah, blah blah", but it was too late and too ruined for apologies.
One star on each of the ratings above is too many, but I can't submit the review otherwise. I honestly did not get the chance to experience the food or the service enough to evaluate them. The whole thing sucked and it made me furious.
This was our second visit. The dining room is very relaxed, quiet enough to have conversation. The food was as good as the first time. Three of us had lamb ragu over rigatoni. 4th diner had roasted chicken. Everything was delicious, prepared as stated on the menu. The service was prompt and unobtrusive. She let us celebrate our birthdays with no interruptions. We’ll be back again for the food and atmosphere.
Nice restaurant but the dining experience was brought down by appalling service.
Bar Tartine was my all time favorite restaurant in San Francisco so I was absolutely thrilled when a friend told me about the Manufactory. It was amazing!! So many wonderful flavors and Once again I am in love! I’m already excited to return and can’t stop thinking about the poetry in my tastebuds!
My mom was visiting from out of town and Tartine set the mode for a perfect evening!
Thank you for all that you do!
