The wait staff and manager do not have the knowledge, organization or communication skill sets to properly serve in a San Francisco restaurant. Rude without any customer service awareness. This lunch was an embarrassment for me as the host. I will never go back and will warn everyone I know to avoid this restaurant. I would go hungry rather than set foot in Toy Soldier again.
Group went for lunch. Host greeted us and seated us upstairs which we had all to ourselves (good for conversation). Orders included salmon sandwiches, burgers, beef stroganov, chicken sandwich. All good. Quick efficient service. Would go again.
The table was ready when I arrived about 5 minutes early. Service was timely and friendly. The roasted shrimp salad was very good..
Piece of fish on sandwich was very small, so it was mostly bread😩
While the food tasted great and our server was extremely nice, the amount of time it took us to get our food was unreal! After waiting over an hour, they brought 6 of the 8 dinners out. In then took an additional 30 min to bring the other 2 dinners out, which were just burgers!
Not sure if they were short staffed, they did give us 2 bottles of wine for free which was very nice.
Great food, nice staff, but hopefully the wait time for food was a one off situation!
The service was terrible. We were embarrassed since it was a business lunch.
I like their atmosphere with European street style.
Food and service was good. There was a private party upstairs so we didn't get seated up there, it looked as though that would have been better ambiance.
Brussel sprout Caesar salad was surprisingly amazing, I want to go back just for that. Chill vibe, outdoor seating is a bit casual but my Canadian guests loved the vibe.
Great food. Best chowder I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to go back
Very good food. Nice and quiet down the alley. Staff was awesome. My sandwich was top 10 all time!
We all go various sandwiches and they were good, but nothing to really go back for. We loved their appetizers so I would definitely go back for drinks and apps. Maybe their entree's are better?
Great food! Cool atmosphere.
It’s my go to in Belden place. Good is great and so is service
Birthday dinner upstairs with a group of 8. We felt like we were well taken care of and the food was quite good. I especially enjoyed the short rib and crab pasta dish.
The Brussels sprout salad is amazing! Food, location, people are great.
Despite having reservations, it seemed as if patrons were herded in and the host, who stood outside, seemed like a carnival barker.
Waiter did not pay full attention to our orders.
Food adequate, liked by the others with me than myself
Food was very poor. I ordered a veggie burger which effectively was mashed up black beans with some spices. The patty was absolutely disgusting - mushy, lukewarm, and just a really bad flavor. I can appreciate having this on the menu, but man if you're going to put anything on the menu at least make sure it's edible. I've had probably a hundred veggie burgers all over the world and I think this is the worst one I've tried.
Service was great.
We will make Toy Soldier a restaurant to come back to during our future trip to San Francisco. My husband had beef stroganoff dish. Our friend & I ordered the sea bass. Our main course choices were beyond our expectations. We also were lucky to be at the restaurant before 6 pm for the Taco Tuesday and drink specials. We made the fish & pork belly Taco specials our mini appetizer. We ended our meal with the corn Creme brûlée and raspberry sorbet dessert. This is a meal that will come up in our San Francisco restaurant recommendations.
Food is good to very good. The range of selections is excellent. The list of starters offers many good options. I would recommend Toy Soldier as a good choice for drinks and bites with friends.
It took us about 8 minutes to get greeted. Everyone that worked there just kept walking past us without acknowledging we were standing at the door. We ordered 2 cocktails and they were awful, we should’ve just selected a wine from their 1/2 off bottle of wine list. The food was just ok and definitely wasn’t worth the pricing. Overall this place has a lot of improvement to do before charging at the price range that they are currently at.
For happy hour I'd recommend this, but they were understaffed for dinner and out of popular items.
Great service! They went out or thier way to make our evening special.
Good but a bit overpriced!
Went with team for Business lunch. Efficient service. Good food. I ordered and ate the crab melt which was very tasty. Others had burgers and salad, both good. Outdoor seating.
They sat us outside on a lovely day, but crammed us next to a couple when the entire patio was open. We had a fairly large group so there was a lot of apologies as each of us tried to squeeze in. Not the best planning!
This place is the best. The food is amazing! Anytime I order I’m never disappointed! Service is always great as well!
I met a friend here for dinner and made it 10 mins before the end of happy hour. We ordered 2 crispy pork belly tacos and the deviled eggs for appetizers - both delicious. For dinner I ordered the fresh dungeness crab spaghetti. The plate had a generous amount of dungeness crab meat - some in chunks and some shredded. It was a little spicy but delicious. I would come back to eat the spaghetti again. The restaurant was a little busy but the service was attentive and friendly.
Food was good, service was so so. We had requested upstairs but were sited downstairs. Rather loud but the food was good. Bar service was slow and we were never ask if we wanted a second drink.
I had the asparagus and burrata salad, plus a bowl of tomato basil soup. All of it was very good, but they were not special or unique.
Toy Soldier was a fun dinner. The menu is somewhat limited, but the food is excellent. I had the deviled eggs - which were spicy and delicious; and the warm Brussels sprouts Caesar salad, which was outrageously good. One other guest had the beef Stronganoff, which he said was excellent. Another had the meatballs as an appetizer, and they were HUGE and tasty. Their beer list is more than adequate; I had a great Czech pilsner that I had never had. We ate in the bar area, because they were hosting 2 different private parties the night we went. But, what put Toy Soldier over the top was the fabulous service. The waitress and bartender were fantastic, incredibly sweet and attentive. It was a really nice experience, and I would highly recommend Toy Soldier!
Excellent menu, well-prepared... Ownership / Management rightfully proud of the place, taking great care to welcome and seat... Service, a tad on the negligent side...empty glasses and bottles can sit for 15 - 20 minutes before one is able to catch the waitress' attention for a refill, and there was no "how is it?" after tasting...thus, getting salt became a quest...
Will definitely return; the food is pretty darn great.
Very disappointing meal. Requested the burger with no dairy to touch the food. The waiter was obviously not listening to what I said and too interested in mimicking my accent! The food arrived with cheese on the burger. I sent it back then after they came back with the burger I noticed the fries had parmesan cheese flakes. Again the food was sent back. Finally the food arrived but my companion had finished her lunch. She enjoyed her meal, unfortunately I couldn’t because the waiter was too lazy to listen.
just recently found this place. Have gone there twice in the past month. Food is really good, but menu is somewhat limited. Look forward to hanging out at the bar sometime soon. staff is very friendly and a real line place. Up stairs was quite but a bit cold, prefer sitting down stairs in the action.
Reserved a table for Valentine's Day dinner. Was told they only had booths in the bar area available ( near the cold door). Several people came in after us and were escorted upstairs. Food was just ok.
Toy Solider is a must to have dinner!!! I would highly recommend this place to anyone because of the high quality of food and service!!!
I had a large group reserved here for my birthday. I called a week before the reservation to confirm a couple things and those items didn't seem to be communicated to the people on-site.
One for example was that I gave a heads-up that my group would want to split the bill in different ways and if that was possible. The person I spoke to on the phone said that was fine and that I just had to let the wait staff know when we got there. The day of when I made the request, the waiters seemed completely surprised by the request and almost did not want to do it unless we divided ourselves by a singles table and a couples table. At least it worked out in the end.
From my group, everyone mentioned the food was so-so. Nothing super impressive, especially for the cost of it. I got the crab spaghetti where the pasta was plain, but crab meat and vegetables were very salty.
Not that I wouldn't recommend Toy Soldier to a friend, but I just had nothing to rave about.
Awesome experience! We had such a great time!
This was ok. Felt like we were being rushed for lunch even though it wasn’t full. The warm Brussel sprout salad sounded better than it was.
Food was okay, service was very slow. Wine & beer selection was good.
