What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.5

Tartine Manufactory in the Mission is a huge operation with excellent pastries, coffee, and ice cream, and dinner as well.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

The food was good. Service from waiter could have been better. Since some plates were
purported to be shared, I asked the waiter if the chicken ( on bone ) could be cut, but he stated that he will give us a knife for that, making it more cumbersome.

Menu was not easy to read. It was unclear which items are to be selected solo, which items to be shared.

In regards to regular entrees offered, there could have been more of a selection.

Long walk to restroom; and because of conference,I unexpectedly had to turn back and go different direction.

Some of the food was amazing (halibut crudo with mint, lime and fresh melon) and some was a little off- the chicken was under-salted but the rice that was under it was too salty. So you had to get a perfect bite of both in order for it to taste right. The chocolate cake/ganache desert was super good and rich. The bread was good but I didn't think it was worth $6. I personally think is should just come with the meal if people want it. The padron peppers were ok- some were a little soggy and others were nice and crisp. The ambience is cool and modern and I liked the interior a lot and our waiter was really attentive and nice.

The ambiance of Tartine is second to none. Lanterns dangle from high ceilings, illuminating the glass and wood so that the whole scene looks positively dreamy. Unfortunately, the very same materials and ceiling height cause sound waves to reverberate, which makes the place loud. My dining companions and I had to holler at each other to be heard. The food was mediocre for San Francisco, but the cocktail I had was delicious.

Interesting menu, and fantastic bread. Interior is nice and one can sport fancy or casual wear. Easy to find free parking at night! Building is industrial with high ceilings, tasteful interior, with 2 walls of windows on this corner building. Creative menu, but dishes not as well balanced as I would have hoped, partly because I'm not big on deconstructed dishes: for example I thought the zaatar seasoning should be in the lamb meatballs, instead of on the bed of pureed fava beans. Interesting and tasty, nonetheless. Can't launch a single complaint about the delicious eggplant dip nor the fabulous country bread, which is absolutely addictive. Since they generously gave us a whole loaf of bread as we were leaving, I continue to bask in the joy of the bread.....and expect to return to try breakfast and lunch fare.

Tartine Manufactory has been on my "wish" list for some time and finally I was able to get a booking; albeit, it was an early booking. OMG, the food was fantastic....now I know why it's not easy to get into. I'll be back again and again and again.

I’m torn about this restaurant. The food was overall really good. We had the eggplant spread, which was just fabulous, the tagliatelle, which was rich and delicious. Peak of the season tomatoes and burrata were perfect. I ordered a tequila cocktail that was excellent. Service seemed a bit off. It wasn’t a busy night, but our server disappeared for a couple of long stretches. To start with he was very informative and a bit chatty, which was nice. The pacing of the food service was fine though. But the ambiance was so lacking that it really impacted the enjoyment of the meal. Hard surfaces, uncomfortable seating, bright lights coming from a cabinet at the end of the bar. Very noisy even though the restaurant wasn’t full. Call me crazy, but when I go out with friends, I like to hear what they are saying. Four people and a tab of $325.

This was my first visit. Everything was great! Food, wine service...all wonderful. I'm looking forward to returning. Pictured is the framboise sauvage cocktail. So refreshing and delicious, I could have drunk a pitcher (and been drunk). For dessert, the doughnuts with lemon verbena ice cream and peach compote were excellent. In between, we shared two appetizers and an entree. All first-class!

Was our first dinner in San Francisco and it didn't disappoint. Shared plates at a round table for the 6 of us. Lots of wonderful flavours and good wine selection. Very interesting ambiance as it's in an old factory (hence the name) so lots of light from all the windows.

First off, the server did all the things a server did.. filled the water, brought our plates etc etc... BUT all with an arrogance and attitude that made me uncomfortable. At two times, I found myself saying to my dinner partner "I don't like her" and it actually came across my mind to ask if we could have another server. Is is because we were people of color?! Secondly, the food was ok. Nothing to rave about like everyone says. Portions were small and for the price very expensive. The bread was $6 and was literally the size of about a dinner roll cut out of a loaf served with butter. The spaghetti with clams was actually udon noodles with 8 clam shells for $27. I'm a girl and I was still hungry after this and worst of all, unsatiated by the food. Maybe I didn't order the right meal. I asked the server what their specialty is and she said "we are known for our bread". Well as far the dinner menu, that was not very helpful. Skip dinner, maybe just do the brunch/ breakfast where they serve their specialty. In comparison to DC restaurants which are my stomping ground, this SF venue could not compare

I’m from out of town, had been to Tartine Bakery which was fabulous and anxious to try Manufactory. Ambience is very open, contemporary. I dined alone and was very comfortable. Experienced server very good. Stone fruit salad delicious, as were lamb meatballs. Bread! and butter superior.

Truly inattentive service and a careless attitude by serving staff. We sat for 14 (yes, we timed it) minutes before any initial approach to the table for drink orders or an explanation of the menu. To be fair, after about 5 minutes the server, Matt, did tell us he would be with us shortly, but failed to return some time. We were seated next to the server station at the corner of the bar, so he was next to us regularly. Still, we were looked over and ignored.

We considered walking out, actually, but decided to wait. He was apologetic when he approached, but the gaps between table visits stayed the same. It did not improve.

Food was at points excellent, always fresh and not overwrought. Bone marrow was a notable exception, of poor quality and overpriced.

Big fan of Tartine, but this visit will prevent me from another visit.

TM Is a fun restaurant, good innovative menu and we are all glad we went. However, it was a bit pricey for us. And tables are a bit close together, so sometimes our neighbors and we got a bit loud. Also our friends were disappointed that they were out of the country bread loaves. If we come again, we will know to get our bread first.

Fabulous first time experience at Tartine Manufactory. Loved it! Luckily we both like salty food. Some may find a few of the dishes a little heavy handed on the salt. The bread is amazing and pleasantly surprised as we both loved our cocktails. Couldn't try out dessert as we simply has no room left. We did ask our waiter to slow down on bringing out our dishes as we wanted to take our time and enjoy. We will definitely be returning again!

We were seated right by the door so everytime it opened a cold draft came upon us (it opened often) and it took almost 10 minutes for someone to come by and ask if we wanted anything so that was a little offputting and didn't set the right tone at the beginning. However the server we had turned the ship around and we ended with a very pleasant experience. Always remember....you only get one chance to make a first impression.

The food here is absolutely first rate and will always bring us back. I do have one complaint: Their bread is obviously their signature offering and is beyond delicious. It is obviously a cash cow for them, but I find it mingy that it isn't offered freely in a spirit of generosity. To pay $6 for each portion of four pieces of bread feels like a slap in the face. I believe that complimentary and unlimited bread would inspire in guests a free wheeling sense of ordering from the rest of the menu. Further, I don't believe most tables would consume more than two servings of bread, so "the house" would not be out a great deal of money from the bread, and would most likely gain more from the rest of the menu. Mostly, it's the lack of generosity, when it comes to what's at the heart of their offerings, at the Manufactory that I find unpleasant.

For dessert four of us shared the pb and j tart. I would return for every dish! If I had one criticism I would ask them to put the shrub cocktails back on the menu.

TM was recommended by a good friend of mine to check out the space more than the food...
Eugene, our waiter, was fabulous. Really attentive, knew the menu well.

Food was delicious! Ordered the spagetti with clams and the noodles were just too raw - twice. They make everything from scratch... so I know its good stuff. But just not working for us that night.
Did end up with the Tagliatelli = YUMMERS!!!!!

Not sure if I would go back - but was a really nice experience. Staff was great!!
