    Dependable brunch before theatre at Orpheum and Golden Gate, open early enough to accommodate 1:00 pm curtain. We have been going there for years. It would be nice if they would reopen the outdoor seating area, which sits unused during the daytime.

    The food was super delicious. My husband and son had the New York strip steak and I had the breen. They were very accommodating for those who are gluten-free. Josh was an incredible server. We will be back.

    The hostess was very slow to recall our waiter. I aksed for my drink up and it was served over rocks. the bartender poured the cocktail into the correct glass but in doing so was sloppy and half the drink ended up on my shirt.

    Very expensive. Good just ok. I know it is a hotel restaurant but $26 for a club sandwich. Really?

    Their brunch menu has lots to choose from and to the soaked oats and proper breakfast was very flavourful. As a guest in the hotel, they definitely made sure you were take care of and ensured you didn’t need for anything.

    Eclectic style smaller restaurant with interesting but not distracting design. The tables are set enough apart to not feel like you are dining with the next table. Enthusiastic staff from the hostess through the bus people. Inventive menu that is not too outré. Great cocktails and nice wine list. We had the lamb shoulder presented table-side under a smoking cloche - Fun! Also had was the pork - enough to split. We were pre-opera.

    Delicious food, and good service. I would avoid their craft cocktails, because they’re low on spirits and pricey, for what you get. Great place to eat prior to a show at the Orpheum…just a short walk away.

    Good for a pre-theater meal. They were sensitive to timing and offer a three course. Food was delicious. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Bar was a little slow but drinks were creative and tasty. Much better than the tapas place that used to be here.

    The high tea sandwiches were frozen and then thawed. One wasn’t completely thawed. The cost was $80 + tax + SF surcharge + tip. It was significantly overpriced for the experience and for walking by open air drug markets very nearby. The staff was very nice and did a good job. I wish I could say nicer things about the high tea but it was mediocre at best
