It was good.

It looks more like a bar than a restaurant, when you enter, as the tables are like you would find in a neighborhood sports bar.

Food was excellent - we had Mezze Platter to start, which was very tasty. Salmon & Beef & Lamb Kebab for main were also tasty - vegetables were cooked perfectly. The cooks are obviously very good - hence the rating.

Service was only average (e.g. Expected to re-use cutlery, despite being covered in humus from starter) and, according to my wife, the ladies restroom in lobby of hotel (to which restaurant is attached) was in need of serious investment.

Chose for proximity to hotel. Great service and great food.

The restaurant has kind of a run-down feel. There was a decent selection of vegetarian and meat to choose from. Food was fine but not notable.

The menu and what comes out are vastly different. My son who does not like spicy ordered the lightly seasoned lamb. I like spice and ordered the burger that was listed with lots of spices. Mind was mild his almost too hot for me to enjoy. Rest of the meals were fine. Those two did not live up to either expectation

Easy to get a table on a Saturday night. Nice atmosphere, good service, and very good food. Overall a very nice experience. Would recommend to a friend.

Clams and mussels were really good. The pizza was really good too especially the crust.

Really attentive and fast service. Portions on the lighter side when it comes to entrees: be sure to get 1 or 2 appetizers and/or dessert. Would definitely return.

Food was really nothing special. Beer selection limited. Many better dining options in the area

The food was delicious and the server was very good. However, they ran out of french bread? It is an Italian restaurant. How do you run out of French Bread? When you send a buser or dishwasher to the store and you buy some to get through service. You don't just stop serving bread.

We had the chicken kabobs and beef/lamb kabobs. They were cooked to perfection. Entrees came with rice and mixed vegetables. However the chef cooked the vegetables were absolutely delicious. Highly recommended dining!

I ate here A LOT on this extended trip to San Francisco. I had breakfast and dinner here often. Easy to get a reservation, great food, great service. Extremely reasonable prices for San Francisco too!!! It's kind of a hidden gem and was never too busy when I was in there. Some of my favorites were the blueberry pancakes and the linguine with clams!!!

An unimposing exterior and location, but a lovely little restaurant with excellent food and service. We stayed in SF for 5 days, and this place was the one my husband liked the best. Salads were excellent, calamari was extremely well done, and his seafood pasta was delicious. We also had a great bottle of wine at a very reasonable price. The menu is a little limited, but this is the kind of place you find locals who appreciate good food at reasonable prices.

There are so many food choices in San Francisco. But we took a chance to check out this lovely neighborhood spot. In short, the food was good. I enjoyed my chicken marsala. Plump juicy chicken cooked perfectly with a yummy mushroom marsala wine sauce tasty garlic mashed crispy vegetable medley of zucchini broccoli and carrots. Appetizers were dolmas, which were great!

We had a group of 12...that quickly became a group of 20. But SOMA was very accommodating and took care of us. Great food and great staff.

We went for a large work dinner of 18 people and found the place very hospitable and quick. Food was ok but the dining area was a bit dark and felt a bit more like an extension to the bar than a restaurant itself. All diners were happy with their food and they were accommodating with our flexible group size so would definitely recommend

I was expecting more based on the reviews. The place is a strange combination of a sports bar and a "semi-nice" restaurant. Plain wooden table with no tablecloths, but nice napkins, for example.
The food was decent - I had salmon which was good.
I picked this place because it is close to Moscone Center where I was supposed to meet a friend. Parking structure is right across the street which is very convenient.
Overall, average place that doesn't stand out in any way.
