Can’t beat the Violet burger and old fashioned combo! Great service and perfect COVID measures without feeling like it overwhelmed the experience.
Went unexpectedly during Restaurant Week and was very pleased. The food was delicious, service excellent and the value was Wow! Had cocktails before dining which were perfect! I highly recommend eating at this neighborhood gem!
Food was Ok but we had to wait for ever for it. The service was better than the food 😊
Great Restaurant Week menu. Wait staff was exceptional.
The food was delicious but the service was very slow.
Always nice to eat outside, even in cooler weather. It was nice, though , to be offered indoor dining this evening.
The burrata toast was absolutely the best ever, as was the shrimp, Caesar salad, fries, and carrot cake. Service could not have been better. Thank tou
We were pleasantly surprised to enjoy the Dine About Town offering here. Everything from the cocktail to dessert was delicious! The burrata toast with snap pea was to die for.
Very attentive, easy to reserve a seat, friendly staff, food came out fast and tasted great. The only issue we had is they switched up our orders (we ordered three burgers but cooked differently).
Great social distance offerings for everyone's comfort levels. Outside dining with heaters and spaced tables, as well as inside dining for those more brave. Great service, and great cocktails.
Awesome neighborhood gem. Crafty drinks. Food very delicious. Very friendly and accommodating staff!
Service was AMAZING. Staff was very respectful of distance and masks which is always appreciated but did not let that subtract from checking in and making sure we had everything we needed. Wish I had gotten the name of my server. He was fantastic.
Amazing service. Delicious food. They made my sister’s birthday very special. Thanks Violet’s!
We love this spot! Great quality drinks and food. The service is great. Very San Francisco pricing if you know what I mean, haha. But it’s a great spot. Love to bring guests here!
happy to get a last-minute reservation!
service was excellent, delicious cocktails, food very good, & we almost managed to stay warm outside on a windy evening-
planning to return & linger for more drinks on a warmer day
Not a good spot for cheap eats. Cocktails are cute and flavorful. Staff was on top of Covid-precautions and were super friendly.
Overpriced cafeteria food.
Drinks were good.
Food was terrible.
The appetizers were alright, but the main course was ill tasting.
It was just very cold! Otherwise great.
I love the aesthetic of this place. Pulled up on a date and the drinks were good. Tried the deviled eggs too. I’d come back and try their small but apparently mighty menu on a nice wait. Definitely coming back to sit inside and enjoy the spot. It looks a vibey well designed gem.
Overall, good food - a bit expensive but good! Small menu that is likely bc of the pandemic. Probably the most strict restaurant we've been to during this pandemic. A little extreme that we basically had out masks on the whole time because we were super nervous about getting in trouble LOL. They wont go near your table to serve unless you masks are up. At this point if you really want their food - just order take out and go home. Also our server was a nice dude but um basically decided for us after he/the kitchen made a mistake with our order. Not a huge deal but definitely annoying: we ordered the appetizer fries, didn't get them instead one side order came out with one of 2 burger orders - we asked them where the app fries (these has parm. and what not on them) the server told us oh well its cheaper if you just get a side of fries. We were like we'd prefer what we ordered.. but ok? He apologized and just brought out a plain side of fries instead. LOL. So weird, but let us live! Champagne was delish and again - we'd def eat here again bc its convenient but not crazy about this place.
Any place with an impossible burger will get a visit from me. Add to it a pretty good warm cocktail (a much better version of a hot toddy) and I'd definitely recommend.
My partner and I had our anniversary dinner here, the noise level was perfect! And parking was so convenient that we found a spot right out front of the restaurant. The service was fantastic as aswell as the ambiance for outdoor dining during Covid. Heat lamps made it very comfortable to enjoy a meal outside.
Nice outdoor heated patio. Covid safety protocol in place
The outdoor dining area is well set up with distance between tables and heat lamps to keep us warm on a cold night. The staff strictly enforce covid procedures: questions at arrival about health, must put mask back on each time server comes to table. Let’s face it, dining during covid is less enjoyable and this isn’t the restaurant’s fault. They are doing their due diligence. Service was good, attentive. The starters portions were quite meager. $10 for 3 x half an egg (deviled eggs), $10 for one slice of toast with beets and goat cheese (tasty but could have been two slices of toast). Menu is limited, not a lot of options - burger, sandwich, meatloaf or fried chicken.
Super nice staff, amazing cocktails, and yummy food! We shared the Mac n cheese to start (which was delicious) and I had an impossible burger for the first time (big fan.) Outdoor seating felt safe and heat lamps were great! Will be back :)
Violet's has been doing a great job adhering to COVID guidelines!
Host was incredibly rude. Friend tried to pull
Up a chair and he freaked out. All dining will be shut down in 2 days, could
Have encouraged people to come back. I will never.
Delicious food and great service
Took covid precautions seriously and felt safe dining outside with the distanced table setup. Great experience and will certainly be returning!
Food is delicious and service is very good
Service was lacking and our heater was barely working.
Our first night in a restaurant since March. Had a great time...drinks and pupu's. Very nice staff and good food!
Was a little disappointed to have to wait awhile for our table when we made a reservation and then be sat at a table on a slanted part of the street. Food was super good though and our waitress was nice. Will come back when indoor seating is offered again.
We come to Violets almost weekly - always great service & excellent food. They’re always kind to our toddler Walter and we’re appreciative: We’ll be back soon!
Thank goodness Violets is open with outside dining. Their food is amazing and they are strict with COVID rules. Plenty of heat lamps and outside dining. LOVE IT!!!
I love this place. Staff is great, food delicious, cocktails always perfect and I love the outdoor area they created.
Food was great, but service felt rushed. We also got seated 30 min late (it was a Tuesday) and felt like we were a burden.
Impeccable service and really kind staff. Cocktails are delicious and everything felt safe and thoughtful.
The dinner was really nice and there was a warm heater above my table. I enjoyed being able to get out to a restaurant and eat there, and they took the health screening and precautions very seriously. I appreciated the meal and hope to come back soon
The food and drinks are amazing! The staff is very attentive and super nice/friendly!
