    Great addition to the area and will be our go to choice when seeing performances close by. Modern clean but still cozy design and unlike pretty much any other restaurant at the moment they get both the lighting and the acoustics right. Good food and a great selection of wine rounds it out.

    I've had dinner twice at Uccello Lounge, and the food really is outstanding. The last time I had a Mendocino black cod, and the fish was meticulously cooked to just the right temperature. The cocktail menu is also superb, and every drink I've had there has been inventive and well-prepared. I know that restaurants in that section of Van Ness have been slow to recover, and I really hope that people start to discover this gem and support it!

    Food for my third visit was carefully prepared with interesting flavors. Service was excellent and friendly. The dumplings, however, were disappointing compared to a previous visit: not enough filling and an uninteresting flavor. Hope these improve at my next visit. Location is ideal if you are in the area for the symphony, opera, or ballet.

    Great place, especially for a pre-Symphony, pre-Ballet, or pre-Opera dinner. Very good food, excellent service, great convenience for the music! The Uccello Cappuccino (soup) is exceptional! We also enjoyed the manti dumplings and duck leg and trout and chicken (with Chanterelles and comté cheese—yum!). Two of us went to Symphony, two to Ballet, so the two Symphony goers returned for an enjoyable after-concert drink. We'll DEFINITELY be back!

    Service was very slow. We o rdered trout from Lassen county. When it arrived it looked like a piece of salmon. Pink with skin. It was too late to send it back as we were going to the symphony. My guest had not been there before and was not impressed Would only. Go there again if there were no other options

    The menu is always interesting, and we get to try a new dish, but if not that, certainly a new creation. 2 of my companions had veal tongue that was superb, one had Kompocha, also great, & I had duck leg that was very tasty but a bit dry. I did miss the Tamarind cocktail though. Pinot was also delicious even though it was California.

    Andreas provided exceptional attention and service at my first visit to Uccello. I was disappointed with the limited menu, although the items tried were excellent. This restaurant is a perfect place for a light dinner and drinks before a concert or show, but not for a night of dining.

    Ucello's is a carefully-framed and extremely well executed menu of California food. There was imported luxury to be had on New Year's Eve, but the underlying menu was built on the food, the vegetables and fruit then in season in Northern California. This is the kind of food that was prepared here around the Bay before refrigeration and air freight for out-of-season fruits and foods. Loretta's cooking is not California Contemporary but California eternal.

    Portions are relatively small for the price, but if you're not into pigging-out, sizes are perfect and the entrees, salads and dessert were great! We had four different entrees and all were outstanding - salmon, duck, gnocci and dumplings. Two salads ditto, and desserts of upside down cake, chocolate over ice cream and a pear sorbet with raspberry compote very good. Had a few cocktails, all good. Server was attentive and answered all questions.

Simple but very well done by a chef who deals with the art of making simple recipes very tasty. We will go back, for sure!

    Very convenient location for multiple pre show locations. Food was tasty. A little loud, but they have done a good try with incorporating sound absorption into decor to help. However with small space and tables so close plus music, it’s still a challenge when crowded. Worth a try and we will most likely return if in the area.

    The food is amazing. Small and main courses are delicate and well prepared. The drinks are great, the sagacious D is a standout. The tinkling piano in the back was good, if a bit aimless. Most were there for the symphony performance, and was extremely well timed, kudos to service staff for friendly and warm welcome. The only issue we had was that in OpenTable we wanted to have two more people come with us last minute. We could not modify the reservation, but when we say, it seemed the table was for four and we really could have had four people attend. Kind of disappointing we couldn’t modify, but overall, just a wonderful date night for the two of us. Excellent dessert, but being out of the preferred dessert wine was a bit of a disappoint.

    This was my third visit to Uccello and it continues to impress me. The food is beautifully prepared, interesting and delicious. Two of us shared 3 items and we were happily stuffed. Their wine list is carefully curated. The guitarist was excellent and the service couldn't be better. I'm looking forward to my next visit.
