    I wish they told me the bread was charged…that was inappropriate that they didnt tell us that which was misleading. Also, there’s substantial amount of surcharge even tho we ate one main fish and an appetizer.. so we had to pay double the price that we actually ate. Feels ripped off. the bread was tasty but we wouldnt pay over 5.5 dollars for the lump of bread…

    This was a nice place. Food was ok. Not the best but not the worst. Had a variety of rooms to choose from. They have a jazz room but you have to pay $15 pp and we weren't staying as we were attending a play that evening. The music sounded good though. I had the seared Ahi Tuna. Companion had Spaghetti pomodoro. Both were average. Ahi was a little dry. Had meatballs as an appetizer- they were ok. Had to pay for bread.

    Server was not good at all. Never had this slow/bad service at any restaurant. McDonald’s service is better than our servers service. We’ve been her 2 years ago and it was perfect, then we came back a year ago and it was ok. Today, we didn’t like the food and the service was bad. Our runner had WAY more personality than our actual server.

    Bar and happy hour definitely worth a try! Be warned the bar space is rather small. Food was excellent albeit a bit overpriced; service so so with some weird vibes I do not want to comment on in public. Wine list extremely overpriced for our taste - there is no need to make 400% on some wines! 100 or 200% should be enough, right? When we finished our bottle of a pricey Supertuscan I asked for extra two glasses of red, and waiter said we have our good table wine by the glass. Guess what they charged us $22 per glass for their "table red". Are we in California where the wine flow freely and is or should be reasonable. We were three weeks ago in Barcelona and that how the wine should be sold in restaurants! The we as consumers would drink two bottles not one...

    This restaurant was AMAZING!! They went above and beyond to make my celebration night perfect. The food was some of the best Italian food I have had in my life! The salmon was cooked perfectly with a great sauce and veggies while the other dish my family member got was a nice gluten free/ dairy free meal. They were accommodating with food allergies and the staff couldn’t have been nicer! I cannot recommend this place more!!! Their gelato was so good too. It is a must try. If I am ever back in San Francisco, I know I will be back! Thank you for a great meal, Zingari!

    Overall wonderful service, and lovely jazz band experience. Most the appetizers, main courses and drinks were presented well and tasty, however, the lamb chop dishes (we ordered two) were well over cooked based on our request of medium to rare with emphasis on more on the rare side. Otherwise, the quaint ambiance and pleasant waitstaff will make for a future visit.

    Fig crostini was excellent! I wish I had tried more appetizers, as that was the best part of the meal. This place is great for a low key romantic meal if you sit in the jazz room. Probably best for tourists.

    Ok… were pretty excited to have dinner here because it offered jazz! We were sat at our table and never actually heard any jazz until we were leaving lol the bar was closed bit the room where the jazz was wasn’t offered to us. This restaurant was just ok. The food was pretty good! The space felt cramped and the noise level was so bad I couldn’t hear my husband speaking ! I couldn’t wait to leave!!! I would not recommend this restaurant if you are seeking a quiet romantic evening. If you are looking for a super loud place where the chairs feel like your sitting on a cinderblock go for it:) otherwise Joes Is an amazing place! Romantic and the music and food are amazing! They have a wonderful wine list as well😊

    We had good expectations about the restaurant but the food was average for the price. We also paid $10 per bottle of still water and the waitress opened 2 of them before asking us. That is probably why it was so empty. Very disappointed.
