Sat in outdoor patio area. Very very very loud. Would NOT sit back there again.
Experience was great.
The service was outstanding. The cocktails and food came in a timely manner but more enjoyably, the Sailor Moon server was so kind and helpful, pointing us in the direction of some very delicious dishes. This little neighborhood secret has really become a great place to meet with friends for a meal as tonic to challenging days.
Great place for friends or a date. Food is excellent and inventive. The presentation and attentiveness of the staff was outstanding!
I took my mom from out of town here for a Sunday brunch and EVERYTHING we ordered was amazing! Super stylish, great service, better food!
Great service and great tasting food. Picnic table benches we were seated at felt unstable at times and rocked a lot due to the uneven flooring.
I love this place! It has some of the best vegetarian food I've ever had and I will definitely be coming back just to have the roasted corn pizza
Great food, the chef should be very proud. Our server gave great service, excellent recommendations, and she timed it perfectly. From one chef to another, bravo! We will return and give you guys great recommendations for others to try. Thank you!
The food and the service was great . The Shasuka eggs wee amazing and the service was 100%. Can't wait to go back.
Cute restaurant with a very unique menu. We ate on the patio which was pleasant- nice shade on a warm day. The fries came with 3 dipping sauces - I had the Old Bay and it was delicious. The small salad with an added protein was plenty for lunch. I don't usually order fried chicken, but this was marvelous. Light crispy coating, but no grease or oil. My companion had the grilled chicken with her Caesar salad. Also great. Service was attentive and friendly. Parking is a bit of a pain, but I was able to park on the street a block away.
I hadn't been there in a while and suggested going there for lunch because we were in the area and because of the back patio.
The experience was better than I remembered as the restaurant has since expanded their lunch menu to include brunch items, which (at least what we had) were really wonderful.
Service was excellent (friendly, efficient, welcoming, etc) and the food was perfect for sharing.
We had Challah French Toast and Chilaquiles, both of which were really really good and which would have been too complicated to make at home (that's a big reason for going to restaurants right?).
I just assumed that, as I was liking everything so much, the check would be a horrible surprise but it was not and turned out to be a pleasant surprise instead.
My big takeaway from the meal is that I need to remember to go there more often.
Great except for the level of music. We were a party of four — sitting in the back — enjoying the food and not the “music.”
The food was fair to good. We each had a different entrée for a total of four, but none of them stood out. We also had a side of fries, which were fine. The bad part was when we asked for sugar for the coffee. The server brought a container with sugar in the raw inside, along with at least half a dozen live ants. We called the server over who immediately took it away and returned with another container. This one had at least two dead ants on top of the sugar. We didn't for look for any more live ones but simply sent it back again.
Ants at a picnic are inevitable. Ants at a restaurant are unfortunate. But a second container of ants (even dead ones) brought to the table is unacceptable.
Otherwise, service was fine.
The dumplings, gazpacho, burrata and grilled peaches, the cod and the steak. All delicious!!!
Our drinks came out after we finished all three of our appetizers but the food made up for it.
Starbelly has excellent pizzas, good wine, and a spectacular space.
Waiter brought out wrong order for half the table so half the people finished their food prior to us getting our food.
Still one of my favorites!
Great drinks. Good food but not great. Pricey, even for SF. I ordered the most highly recommended item on the menu (steak) but it was dry and less flavorful than expected.
Fantastic drinks food and great service
The dessert was very good, the service was good and they have a great selection of wine by the glass but the rest of the food was underwhelming.
Atmosphere was nice in the patio, server attentive. I thought the food was pretty decent, but nothing special/memorable.
It was great - we added one extra person at last minute and they accommodated us but then told us we had to complete meal by 8:15 in 75 minutes. We finished by 8:05
I made a reservation by accident for thursday when I meant wednesday and Starbelly was able to accomdate my party of three quickly and were very gracious. Servers were freindly and attentive.
We enjoyed Starbelly and found their dishes consistently delicious. The dumplings were a particular favorite and the in-house bacon was terrific. Great place to catch up with friends. We also saw families and dates gathering to meet that night. We definitely recommend.
Ambience was rustic and casual, we enjoyed the covered patio seating at back. The chicken liver pate with the buttered bread, heirloom tomato salad and the chorizo pizza with egg were delightful! Hope to return soon.
I love Starbelly. I have never eaten brunch at the restaurant but thought this would be a great setting/great food to share with my friends visiting from Portland. We had a fabulous meal and a great time. The Starbelly team was super accommodating and allowed us to move up our reservation. The staff was extremely knowledgeable, engaging and we left happy. The biggest win is that my husband, who has never been to the restaurant, said he would love to go back again to try the dinner. Thanks for everything!
Always a great brunch at starbelly. Friendly service, great cocktails and food
Service was spotty but we had a great time and enjoyed the food.
Always enjoy our lunchtime meals out on the patio at Starbelly. Great service and food was delicious.
Food was good. Service was mediocre.
In spite with a reservation, we didn’t get seated till almost 30 minutes after we arrived on time. No tables were ready. Nor did we get offered with high top bar tables or anything.
Food was really just ok and did not live up to the reviews. We ordered a chorizo pizza with eggs and a burger. The pizza dough was really tough to chew. The pizza itself was blend with a lack of any flavors. We didn’t know there was no cheese on the pizza. The burger was mediocre. I would prefer in n out for a better value.
We have been to Starbelly several times over the past few years and each time our experience is the same. GREAT. We love the food, food portion sizes (not too big), variety of menu choices and eating outside in the Patio. We tend to come early (5:30pm) but an hour or so later it gets a bit noisy. That won't deter us as well just continue to come early.
The service and ambiance here are fantastic but I feel like the food has gone downhill. I used to LOVE this place. Now I feel like I barely tolerate it.
Started off stellar. Frim the receptionist to the appetizers we had high hopes. Read ALL those positive reviews. And I cook and eat out often. Sadly, not going to return.
The burger was so average the fries practically inedible, the fried chicken? Seriously. Shameful. Deboned? Like a cutlet. The accompanying vinegar slaw? So thoughtless. The cornbread moist yes.
Now that pate!! Wow. And wow. The dumplings? Delicious
Not coming back for average. So many stellar why would we?
I always enjoy Starbelly ---- the drinks, the food, the ambiance, the customers. I've been there many times and always enjoy myself. Yes, the noise level can rise but it wasn't irritating.
Starbelly is always a good consistent spot for food and great service.
Pretty disappointing experience overall. Despite having a reservation They wanted to see me at a hightop by the door on a cold night. They ended up sitting me outside with no heater and rushing through dinner so that they could get us out of there before they are 930 curfew. Service was completely robotic and almost no interaction or I contact with the wait staff. It’s like they couldn’t even stand being there themselves. And food was just average slightly better than diner food
Person serving us was attentive but not overbearing
Granted I ordered a pretty basic breakfast, but it was pretty bland - scrambled eggs were extremely dry, toast was burnt, and food did not come out very hot. Service was also slow.
Ambiance was wonderful though and I'd go back and try something different.
I loved the service and ambiance. The set up of the restaurant was comfortable and open. The food is amazing, great place to go with friends.
