    Was special to find a great place for vegetarian and vegan friends. Cocktail list was delicious. Food preparations are very fresh and innovative. We had the set tasting menu for four of us; salads were outstanding. Flavorings lingered on the tongue. Service was a little slow and spotty; they will get it right with practice.

    Everything we ordered was amazing. We had winter chop salad with the best dressing and texture, maitake mushrooms fried to perfection, squashio e pepe and orecchiette both had complex and unique sauce, fried Oreos were a lot of fun, and malasadas came with dolce de lèche and ganache that are both so good you cannot have enough. Their prices are quite high but for the food and gorgeous interior, I’d say it’s worth it especially on special occasions.

    We came for the first time and ordered the Chef Selection. It came out great. Everything nicely selected and prepared for a very pleasant pallet experience. Only downside was that the noise level is very high inside. We are looking forward to experience the food again outside once California sun is more plentiful.

    Another great experience at Twelve Month last night. We kept with our regular favorites like the Mushroom starter and also tried many other new items that we enjoyed like the “not paella” and the malasada dessert. Our server Quinn was attentive and extremely helpful with all our questions about the dishes. Thank you all Twelve Month staff for another wonderful date night!

    I've been coming to 12 Month since opening. Love the spot. I've been there perhaps 20 +/- times now, usually bringing a non-vegan with me (I am vegan 12 years, veggie for 50). The initial opening menu was great and I've enjoyed most of the creative concepts in the main menu along with the bar menu. I ate there last night on a date and I have to say the current menu is falling somewhat flat. The food quality is slipping downward and some of the menu items are a bit edgy for such a small offering. We started with the Fern dish which was underwhelming. Maybe it's because I've never had escargot, and I do know that the majority of your customers are not vegan but it was an odd play for a vegan restaurant. The main of Carrot Curry was also short of their high standard. The vegetables were overcooked. The curry itself was good but the limp vegetables detracted from the dish. I had the 12 month salad which can dusted with whatever that yummy seasoning is and it seems to have changed. It was underdressed and there was some greens past there prime that had turned brown on the tips. The bean soup and bread were both outstanding though! I eat at all of the bay area Vegan spots, Millennium at least once a month, Both Wildseeds and Skye Cafe in SSF, several vegan spots in the South Bay too. The one thing 12 month is consistently missing in the main menu are proteins. I hope they will think about tempeh, tofu, and combined foods for aminos to assist the vegans. Tofu would have been a great addition to the Carrot Curry, IMHO. In any case, I love the restaurant and will likely favor the Bar Menu as of right now. Hope the chef is getting out and tasting other vegan menus for perspective. Thanks and best of luck!

    The restaurant itself is gorgeous! They did such an amazing job keeping the awesome bones of a cool building. Our waiter was lovely. The food was also very delicious and VERY healthy which I appreciated. I will definitely go back-but now I know to definitely order the bread (we didn’t because we didn’t want to be too full and we wish we had). The wine list had a nice list of wines under $70 and then some of condone ones-so that was appreciated too! The only miss was my husband’s was supposed to have tofu and didn’t…the waiter talked to the manager (and we were super chill about it missing). The waiter brought the check and dish was comped-way more than we expected to happen but it was so odd the waiter did not tell us. We only noticed when checking out the final bill.

    First thing to say is whoever they hired to transform the former Steelhead Brewery space did a fantastic job. This place looks amazing. Service, inventiveness and quality of the dishes are all excellent. It’s nice to have a vegetarian/vegan restaurant at the level of a Millenium of Greens on the Peninsula.

    Great plant based food. Tried the crispy mushrooms which were not overly greasy being that they were friend and beet salad. The latter was very refreshing. Portions were large. We also had the twelve month salad which to me was not as described in the menu(tiny greens were in the menu but what was served were colorful lettuces that were not tiny) but still very unique and delicious. The bar had difficulty finding sparkling wine we ordered so it came out after the food. The server was very sweet and apologetic. We went for a work lunch and were able to talk and hear each other well. Definitely would go back!

    While we were finishing dinner i was making another reservation to bring friends from out of town later in the week - that’s how much I liked my first visit to Twelvemonth. After sharing a starter and a dessert and each enjoying a main course and their incredibly good bread, we were comfortably fed. We would happily order the carrot curry and the pasta with winter squash and pepper sauce again. I’m a fan of fried mushrooms, and I think the fried maitake were the best i’ve ever eaten. We nearly skipped dessert but i’m so glad we didn’t. We shared the sticky toffee pudding, which was more of a loaf cake and not all that sticky, but the flavor of the dish (with optional soft serve) was sublime. Menu includes a thoughtful selection of non-alcoholic cocktails. The smoky, slightly bitter Mas O Menos with grapefruit and rosemary was perfect for someone who doesn’t care for sweet cocktails. Pleasant, skillful service. The crowd was all adults, couples and groups of friends. I saw no children in the dining room at 7:30 on a Saturday and no children’s menu. Which is not to say children wouldn’t be welcome but I think only the adventuresome eaters would be comfortable.

I can check off all the boxes with Ambiance, professional service, clean, excellent food, nice wine list and the noise level was great were you can have a normal conversation.

    We had lunch and was our first time dining here. Absolutely wonderful! We asked for recommendations as first-timers and we ordered and shared the hamburger, chicken sandwich and gyro, along with the fried mushrooms. There wasn’t one disappointing dish, everything was delicious. Service was awesome too. I am looking forward to enjoying again soon!

    We love this place! The food is always delicious. We are not vegetarians or vegans but we love coming here because it's just really good, creative and flavorful food. Our only disappointment this time was that they were out of one of our favorites--mushroom creme brûlée--at 7:00 on a Saturday evening. They should really avoid that happening. The crispy mushroom and the beet appetizers are excellent. Their pastas are great. I had the Chocoyotes which was a bold, Mexican-inspired dish with corn masa dumplings. Excellent as well.

    Food overall was very good. Four of us ordered multiple dishes and shared plates. Highlights were the roasted beets, mushrooms and not paella. The sticky toffee pudding was dry, dateless and had very little sauce. The rolls were nothing special. Large outdoor space (not being used on a rainy cold night) would be lovely once weather improves.

    Went for the first time last night. Swift and friendly service, lovely location, great, imaginative food with interesting and tasty ingredients. Minor-ish suggestion: have the staff bring serving spoons for shared dishes. Also, adjust the music in the indoor dining area as it was more of a low bass thump at times. Loved the lighting, tables, napkins, dining ware and wine glasses. Enjoyed the botanical paintings in the corridor en route to the restrooms, and the communal hand washing area. Will be back!

    Waiter had great suggestions. Service was very slow as they were training new employees, but it was 45 minutes before they came to ask us whether we were done with appetizers. The food is good, but doesn't quite taste as advertised. Banh mi was good, but didn't taste like banh mi. Mushroom appetizer was good, but was VERY greasy - not exactly healthy! Ambience is excellent!

    Finally got to dine at Twelvemonth, and it did not disappoint! I love that the ingredients used in the dishes were seasonal and fresh. It was obvious that the chefs put in a lot of thought and creativity into the food. Loved the bread rolls with furikake butter, maitake mushrooms, charred cabbage salad, pear curry and not paella. Ambience was perfect— cool, classy, comfy vibe, open and airy. We also enjoyed the music played in the background which wasn’t too loud. Definitely coming back!
