The Dorian

4.3

540 Reviews
$30 and under
American
A neighborhood supper club serving modern pub fare and free-spirited cocktails.
 
The Dorian is an ode to a bygone era, a modern day parlor for the bohemians, libertines and free thinkers among us. A place where Oscar Wilde might have dropped in for a drink or Jerry Thomas would have tended bar. Offering fresh provisions and fine whiskey, The Dorian is the quintessential destination to enjoy good times for good times sake.
 
Our menu draws from San Francisco’s rich culinary history, taking the liberty to explore and re-invent nostalgic favorites and concoct new dishes alike. Our beverage program treads a bohemian path, borrowing from the past and dreaming up new ways to have fun through libations. We couple this with an extensive list of over 120 whiskeys. 

We encourage reservations, but welcome walk-ins.

    Service took forever. We had to wait so long to order and after the order was taken, it took forever to get the food. They forgot our drinks. I wish they were more attentive. The same thing happened to the people on the next table.

    Everything was fine until it was time to change my baby’s diaper. They don’t have a provision for that in any of the restrooms. When asked, manager offered me to use their upstairs service area which was closed at that time, and I did. Then moved the dirty diaper from upstairs to restroom, absolutely unhygienic. I would appreciate if parents and kid’s basic requirements are also incorporated in that restaurant to improve customer’s (parents’) experience.

    Most of the food was good. Loved the oysters, tuna tartare and truffle fries. The fried chicken was dry, would not order again. The bar was not good wither. We had to send several drinks back. Setting is nice and comfortable.

    Hostess Bella was warm friendly and welcoming. Ambiance was fun and hip. Food was good for the majority of our group, however One of the medium rare steak orders was very undercooked and fries were cold. Drink orders took a very long time to arrive… At least over 25 minutes. A silica pack was found in the chips that were served with the tuna tartare. Waitress did not check in on us during the duration of the evening, forgot to pick up menus, and left dirty dishes throughout the night at our table, Waitress passed drinks across our table of ten and asked people to pass them over in a very unprofessional manner. Food was delivered in a unprofessional manner as well, and salad was delivered after entrée

    Let me start by saying the service is fantastic at The Dorian. The staff was welcoming and knowledgeable and their recommendations were spot on for drinks. I would go back on those two points alone to see what else I might experience with them. I do think the mac and cheese left a bit to be desired and a few of the tables did seem quite tight - more like the tables were too large for the booths they were assigned to. And I do hope they fix the photobooth because what a cool little bonus!

    Food was good. Drinks were good. Service was a little slow out of the gate and then salads/soups were served at same time as main course. Felt rushed. Would go back for drinks at bar but probably not for dinner.

    I had higher expectations based on the reviews for the Dorian. We went last night and it was very busy and they seemed overwhelmed. Drinks took 45 minutes to get ordered/ come out. They were good though and reasonably priced. For dinner we got seated in the bar area for dinner and the service wasn’t great and sound way too loud. We rarely get a date night out because we have little kids (and babysitting is so expensive) so it was disappointing. Would not recommend anyone come here besides just for a drink if it’s not too busy.

    Poor service, cold dining room (door open and cold outside), food was cold to room temperature, food was not cooked as requested, we were scolded for asking for salt and pepper ("... we've already salted the huevos rancheros..."), server disappeared and no one took over.

    We made reservations for standard seating and when we arrived, they sat us outside and didn't give us a choice. Since it was our first time there, we would have waited for table inside so we could check out the decor and bar. We ordered our drinks and food. I ordered the Shatshuka, which in the menu, stated yogurt would accompany the dish. My dish didn't come with it, and when asked if I could have some, I was informed by waitress that the new recipe didn't call for it anymore. We didn't argue, but was disappointed because it was listed in their current menu. Otherwise, food and drinks were great and tasty, thus why I gave high ratings. We will definitely try this restaurant again for dinner, and hopefully will get a table inside.

    Came to the Dorian for my birthday celebration and unfortunately had a bad experience. We didn't know who are server was, our drink order was only taken once, two of my friends weren't asked their meal order so had nothing served when everything else was brought out and we had to close out the bill via the bartender. The table was so uncomfortable to sit at, there wasn't enough room for my legs under the table (both knees hitting the middle runner and thighs hitting the under of the table. Also, it was a 6.30pm reservation and the music was so loud the 7 of us couldn't hear each other. The Dorian is usually great but this experience was miserable

    I went for SF Restaurant week and while the food was good, the service was not. I came here a year ago and the service was the same. No one really paid attention to us unless we spoke up or raised our hand to get our order taken. We had 4 different people serve us because we could not tell who our server was. However I did really enjoyed the food. The entree portions were a bit small but honestly after eating the 3 course meal I was stuffed.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary at The Dorian last night (we had our reception here in 2018). The attentive staff went out of their way to make sure our experience was top notch and all our needs were taken care of; from giving us a great table, to sending out two glasses of champagne as we were seated, and even comping our dessert! Our meal was fabulous and it we had a wonderful time reminiscing about our big day. Thanks so much for making our night feel special!

    We had a reservation at 7:15 and it took us 30 minutes to get seated. When we finally sat down, we didn’t see a waiter for another 30 minutes. When the food finally came, it was cold and the portions were small. Would not recommend for restaurant week.

    Pretty poor experience. Waited about 25 minutes for our table AFTER our reservation time. Meanwhile walk-ins and tables of 4 and 5 individuals were being seated. Once seated, we ordered the froze’s, which were great, but were told once our drinks arrived that they were out of straws. Hard to drink without a straw, so ended up using a spoon. Not sure if they were having a bad brunch morning or what the case was, but not sure I’ll be coming back.

    When we first sat down as a group of 9, way too many flies for my liking. The table was sticky and we didn’t love that. A live band was playing and it was a bit too noisy for my liking. Service was really good. Attentive to our table. Food was good, too. Would go back for the food on a not live music day
