We had dinner at the Progress to celebrate my husband’s bday. Service was superb. Nice ambiance. Food comes in small portions, so I recommend ordering at least 2 items on the menu per person. Food was good. Nice presentation. Cocktails are also very good.

This was some of the most creative food I have ever had. They combined ingredients that didn’t sound like they would go together and everything was delicious!

An increíble ambiance and service experience. The food is so robust and interesting, I highly recommend only ordering 2-3 dishes per person. We got too excited and over-ordered. Ended up ordering 8 dishes total and by the end, the food was too rich for us. Zero to do the amazing food, all to do with us. Go!

Fabulous Meal and lovely service from our server and all food runners. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable about the food/ingredients and cooking preparations. The meal was so delicious, and it’s always a treat to have a well thought out meal, pacing and course pairing were on parr! I’d go back for the Grilled Napa Cabbage dish and the Lost Voyage Cocktail was a nod to Tiki tradition.

Great service and almost everything we ate was truly delicious. Unfortunately the grilled steak with radicchio was pretty disappointing -- chewy and both overdone (in parts) and underdone. I would definitely go again, and just stay away from the red meat.

Excellent as usual. It was a pleasure to return after the Covid hiatus. Most of the staff is new since the reopening but one would never know. Previous staff and management did a great job training and bringing every one up to speed. Menu was excellent. Only a few dishes from the past. They just need to bring back the pig ears. Kudos to Katelyn, Suzanne, Will and the rest of the staff that waited on us.

One of the best meals I've ever had. Progress was great pre-covid, but now rates as exceptional. It is a foodie place - super creative but unpretentious. The servers are all A+ and passionate about the food and your experience.

This was on our must-dine list while in San Francisco and I’m glad it was! We loved every dish and enjoyed the shared plate style as it gave us so much variety. The portions made it so you could have quite a few dishes, but we still left very satisfied. Service was lovely and our waiter had excellent recommendations for both food and wine.

great food, attentive wait staff. Service was slower than other times and the noise level was at the bomb/painful level. That said, I'll would happily go back tomorrow because the food is so good and creative

The food was cooked well, not my typical palate. Except the potato cloud and the floating island which were mind-blowing. It was loud. My friend is hard of hearing so she struggled a bit to hear me.

So lucky to have this place within walking distance of my place along with State Bird Provisions and Anchovy Bar! The food has improved a lot since it first opened. Service is superb with nice ambiance, outdoor seating also available.

Not sure if Covid has anything to do with it but service was lackluster. Drinks not made in a timely matter, Server pleasant but not engaged enough considering the price for 4. Walked by our table several times without acknowledging us. Food runners were much more interested in our experience than server. Perhaps short staffed on the Thanksgiving weekend and was too busy to really give best service.

Oh boy did we ever miss The Progress. So glad they're back. This is our fave restaurant and this was our first meal back since their most recent reopening. Each plate was heaven. Service was outstanding, as usual. Each dish is the most special creation. LOVE.

We Love The Progress And I’m so happy they’re open again. The food was wonderful, the wait staff were very accommodating, everything was just great. My only suggestion is to turn down the music. It was just too loud to have a nice dinner conversation.

My husband and I chose The Progress for our anniversary. We knew it would be special. Chef Stuart’s menu is so creative, the food fresh and delicious, the staff friendly and professional. The team works hard to make every diner’s experience memorable. I also want to mention the extensive wine list. Excellent all round - I highly recommend The Progress.
