    We are in town for a convention and decided to try a new place tonight. We found the restaurant through the Open Table App and really liked the menu so went over. When we got there and sat down, we saw that the menu online wasn’t accurate and many of the items we wanted to get weren’t available for purchase or had been taken off the menu. We were very disappointed about that but decided to stay there and try other things. We all ended up with the fish and chips plus a order of Brussel Sprouts which were very good, just not what we had originally had in mind. I suggest that the restaurant update their menus online ASAP

    I reserved the place for my husband's birthday after reading the positive reviews. It sounded fun. I now realize It is a bar with food...not really a birthday dinner place. We waited a while (10 min) to be seated with no kne else waiting...we thought maybe there was no host at 6pm on a Friday so we wandered to the bar but as we did we were greeted from behind by the hostess. I specifically asked for a table or booth in our reservation (no bar or stools) but were sat up hight on a stooled table. I think they hardley looked at our reservation because it wasn't crowded...or because there were only two of us, the nice booth tables were reserved for 3 or more. I insisted on a table...our choices were either in the back with a family with children crawling everywhere or the table behind the hostess station. We took the non child option. Food was adequate. The drinks were good....alchohol, cava and beer, usually is. Even with happy hour prices we spent over $50...plus a tip. We weren't upset with the experience but we likely won't go back or even mention it to others.

    The drinks were good and food tasty. The restaurant is very noticeably an Irish pub which is not super obvious (to me at least) from the pictures so not necessarily he best brunch place depending on the intention of the group.

    I had been here before and have always had a great experience, but this time was by far the best. Our waitress wonderful, and it was only her 2nd day! She was very attentive, friendly, and very patient with our party - especially when we were divvying up the bill. The food was delicious, highly recommend the burger. The cocktail menu has a lot of options and all of us were pleased with our drink. My only bit of constructive criticism would be the table that we were sat at. It was a little awkwardly shaped for a big group that made it tricky to talk to someone that wasn't sitting right next to you.

    This was my first time at Liberties but it won't be my last! Food was very good+ and service was perfect: friendly, timely and quick but not always interrupting the meal. As with a lot of San Francisco spots, parking can be an issue but the location is just a short walk from the 24th and Mission BART station. I'll be back!

    While the food was good and the drink delicious, the service was terrible. They had two large parties (one of which was ours) but didn't staff properly. There was only one bartender on duty for a Saturday night. This is just poor planning. People in our group didn't get drinks until we'd been there an hour! I would NOT recommend this place for groups. If there's just two of you, it's probably fine.

    This place has a surprisingly good brunch- a whole bottle of "champagne" with orange juice for $20- it's a steal in the city! The food is a solid 8/10. Not mind blowing, but exactly what you want. It's got a great atmosphere, and the service was attentive without being overbearing. It is definitely more popular at night- they've got a great bar and drink selection.

    This is more of a bar than a restaurant - the menu (only one per table unless you ask for more) looks like a bar menu with food interspersed in the middle. But the cocktail was amazing! I had a Manhattan - even though it did not come with the orange peel and was on the sweet side, it was well-balanced and boozy. The fries were amazing, the burger greasily juicy and cooked to the correct temperature - but the pickle was a disappointment. Not only is it problematic to get a spear pickle to go inside the hamburger bun, the pickle was salty and lacked acid to cut through the greasy goodness. The boozy milkshakes look like great fun though - maybe next time! And I would definitely come back to try other cocktails and order more fries!

    The main server had too much on his plate and had difficulty in providing good service. It’s hard to blame him as the other employee who was mainly behind the bar was always texting away on his phone. The food was decent, and the main server ended up giving us two free beers before we left which was nice.
