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.

You would think that when every patron in this restaurant puts their coat on and when patrons complain about the air conditioning that management would get a clue! Here not so much. Tartine Manufactory is a pleasant place with good food, but it was so frickin cold that I could never consider going back. And truly everyone was complaining. So why the management turns a blind eye to this is mystifying. There are plenty of great restaurants in SF, but this isn't one of them.

We asked for a booth and the hostess said we could not have one because they were for 4, not 2. The entire time we were there, many tables with 4 seats, were empty. The portions are small and the food is overpriced. Basically, we had one soup, one salad , one pasta, and one dessert for over $125. We will buy the Tartine baked goods and go to the other cafe, but we will not return here.

The food here is so flavorful and unique, and the ambiance so magical, it’s truly a special treat every time I come. However, the staff is consistently neglectful, so expect a long wait and a long meal. I love to bring out of town guests here, but would not bring my parents here.

Great ambience and good food= one of our favorite go to restaurants. The bread as expected is fabulous. The food is solid - not spectacular but solid. The best dishes are the steak tartare, mixer drinks, and the broccolini... not so great? The pickles (kimchee abs regular)

We love Tartine. However, we ordered a meat dish to share. It was on the cold side. We expected our dish to be served hot.

Not quite the frantic scene at the original spot but quite busy. The item I ordered was missing the sauce and the waiter was swell and brought us a desert. Good service, bustling and tasty food.

I was really excited about having dinner at Tartine Manufactory after visiting the bakery. The food was good, the portions very large our waiter told us it was family style but we could have used a warning that we didn’t need so many plates. The service overall was average. Our waiter forgot our drinks. Didn’t follow up often and not very engaged. The food was very good but not outstanding. Inexpected a bit more.

The last visit, my food was noticeably lower quality for a dish that I literally ordered exactly a week ago. The spoon bread that came with my pork chop was almost burnt and hard - difficult to cut with my spoon in fact. Pork chop was a little overdone. I also expressed some unhappiness with one of the drinks I ordered - in fact did not even finish it - and our waitress did not offer to exchange it for a new drink or to remove the charge. I would not come back if I knew that they were consistently delivering food and service at this level of quality. It has been incredible in the past but I will be less likely to go back again knowing that quality is potentially highly variable!

What a train wreck! Some of the food was quite good, but some was just odd - for odd's sake. Both the menu and wine list seem a bit pretentious. I love seeing unfamiliar ingredients on the menu and love trying new stuff. But at the end of the day, there's not very much new here, and the quality is uneven. The pork chop was great, but the polenta was bland. The crudo was great, but the squid ink "spaghetti" was swimming in so much excess liquid, it was impossible not to wear it home and the clams were completely overpowered. Not to mention that the very thick "spaghetti" was actually bucatini. But the worst part by far was the service. Bread ordered by not delivered. Bread finally delivered after multiple requests - 18 minutes later, but then one of two bread plates randomly taken away by the same server. Wine never delivered. Then our server generously pronounced, "Oh, we just wanted to let you know that you won't be charged for the wine." THAT WE NEVER GOT!!!! Given others' favorable reviews of this spot, I'm completely shocked at what a bad experience we had. So, I can only hope that our experience is the exception, not the rule. We won't be going back to find out.

I think I had the most delicious bread there, that I have ever had. And the service was terrific. As is the comfortable vibe . However the food didn't work for us, and was poor value for the cost. The spaghetti with squid ink just didn't taste that great. Still, it seems to be a place people really like. So perhaps your experience will be much better.

Disappointed, 4th time eating here. After a subpar meal we thought we would give it another chance.
The food was cold, the service was mediocre. Out waiter never came by to check how the meal was?
From the pricing standpoint the food should really be much better and more attention paid from the kitchen.
We won’t be returning, on for the bread to go.

We had a party of five for dinner. Overall the experience was exemplary. Great food, drinks, wine and service. My only complaint is that the ambient noise level was excessive. The restaurant was filled to capacity, and it was difficult to hear those not sitting right next to me.

Return visit was disappointing— hits and misses: Burrata on toast great but dinky compared to incomparable and generous wild mushroom/arugula Tartine; gem salad excellent. Asked our server whether $34 chicken entree was good to share and found very little chicken even for one— not even half a chicken breast with a small leg and thigh. Accompanying rice tasty but not crime fraiche-like addition. BE aware that menu on Open Table not necessarily up-to-date.

Our waitress was dressed in a sloppy sweater like a day in when it’s raining. She stood at the counter a lot and didn’t ask us if we needed more bread. I ordered a glass of wine that never came and as she was hanging out at the counter she didn’t notice. She was rather blah and I have been there 3 other times and always had professional servers. Even my son who never complains said she wasn’t doing her job
