Great spot, great drinks, great food, great service, but one of the LOUDEST places I have ever dined! Luckily I remembered that I had earbuds with me, or I would be stone deaf. My ears are still ringing, 3 hours later.

Our fault for getting there too early for brunch but breakfast menu is ridiculously overpriced. We did have three drinks but wasn't worth $100 for breakfast.

While the waitress was a pleasure and tried to make things right it was really a calamity of errors all around. Truly disappointing. The table was in the back and it was a large round in the middle of the back room just outside the kitchen and bathrooms. The room was really cold and the seats were freezing metal. The volume made it hard to be heard across the table. While the cider I ordered was having the tap changed she brought me another while I wait. It was a nice gesture but when the cider was never going to be available she just brought me another of the same substitute without giving me the choice to select something else. There are five in our family and the waitress thought my three sons were going to share a burger. That is insane. So only one arrived and we had to wait for the other two to come late. None of us were able to eat together. This was a special occasion and that was the most upsetting. Then a couple desserts showed up while my youngest was just getting to his burger and only two deserts for the table of five. So ready or not ice cream would melt or the burger would go cold. Burgers ordered medium well all came red rare. The special request that one son made for his burger came one all three? It really was one error after the other. The days of throwing deserts we never wanted at the table that has had such errors are over . In less than an hour we were back out the door. Thanks for the $250 and oops sorry. Pity I can hardly remember what was right since it was over shadowed by so many errors

We were there during Dreamforce, which is always an intense time for restaurants. We used opentable to book tables, but weren't sat until 20 min after the reservation time. The food and drink was FANTASTIC, so I would recommend this for a good meal if you aren't on a schedule.

I loved everything about it except the metal seats were very cold on my butt and our table was situated in the middle with not enough room for the servers to quite get through so they bumped me probably 8 times total. I am a small person, there just wasn't enough room in between tables.

Food was great. Service was great. We were running late for a reservation and called to let them know. They said no problem and they would hold the table for us.

Only negatives (IMHO) were it was a little on the noisy side (but it was packed probably due to the Salesforce Conference being in town), and somewhat cold inside.

I had the Cavalier salad and the ribeye. Both were excellent. Will definitely go back.

Delicious food for reasonable price.

I had dinner here with a friend.

We had crispy brussels sprouts, beef tartar and bone marrow as starters to share.
After that, my friend had a soup and I had the lamb shack.
All of them absolutely delicious.

My friend was really full after the starters and couldn't finish her soup.
The waitress was very friendly and boxed up the left overs for her to take home.

I really like the interior and the place, it has a great ambiance but not too packed which keeps the noise level not too loud.

I will recommend this place to friends and definitely come back, I will also try brunch here.

 (Baltimore)·Dined on October 24, 2017

Well it is downtown San Francisco so expensive is normal and it seemed to have a millennial vibe, so noisy is normal. But this restaurant (in Hotel Zetta) did not meet the expectations I had. The supposed celebrity chefs and supposedly amazing food got a lot of pump inside the hotel. The food was very ordinary, and for the price ($24) of simple fish and chips very disappointing. I would not ordinarily order fish and chips in a nice restaurant, but the buzz about theirs was enough to overlook other options and give it a go. Kind of soggy french fries buried under three light, mild tasting, wedges of likely panko coated fried fish. Something like mild mayo was served in place of the usual tartar sauce. Why not some wasabi kick, or another or flavor note? I didn't get the hype. I would not go again. Maybe this is not fair since i had only one dish, but certainly this one did not deserve the acclaim they gave it.

This place is outstanding in every way. From the food (utterly amazing, with such thoughtful details) to the service (warm and attentive without being overbearing) to the host (kind and friendly) to the air of days gone by elegance while somehow managing not to be pretentious, we were delighted. I am especially thrilled to experience the superb creation of a woman head chef, and a woman part owner. SO nice to see women finding opportunities to shine and lead in this field. A+

Visited the Cavalier to top off a day of shopping in SF. A fan of Marlowe, their sister restaurant, I was excited to try this location. Food is very good, and the service was exemplary. We were the among the first to arrive for the evening, so the scene was quiet, but I understand that it gets lively in the evening. A definite recommendation if you are near Westfield in SF and are looking to get something above and beyond the food court!

Was pleased with all around service, beverage menu, food options and really no critiques - i mean ok, it could probably cost less (like every place in SF these days) but when you go out you gotta expect to get whacked - at least they put value and smile behind it all. Almost everything on the menu that I tried I'd recommend, Cod and Pork chop main course, egg , shrimp and oyster plates were app's all. 9/10.

We booked a table to 10 at Cavalier and we were very pleased. The food was very good, the noise level allowed us to converse and the service and timing of food delivery to the table was outstanding, especially for a relatively large party. The food for all 10 of us was delivered within a very reasonably time after we ordered, and all meals were delivered at the same time and all was hot and delicious. Not easy to find that. Our waiter was attentive, knew the menu to answer our questions. We could not have been happier. I would highly recommend this restaurant on a visit to San Francisco.

Dinner service was quite off today, unlike my last brunch experience which was wonderful. We were given the wrong dish for our order, drinks arrived super late after we're half way through appetizer, and entries arrived way too early when we were having salad. I took my date (who is British) to celebrate his Bday, and it turned out to be quite a disappointment for both of us. Hope things will improve.
