I can’t say enough good things about Starbelly. Everything was superb. The service was attentive, prompt, welcoming and friendly. It was very busy the night we were there, but the staff really had it covered. They were omnipresent but not smothering. We didn’t feel rushed at all. The food was terrific. The date cake in particular really exceeded expectations. Great place, great food, great people. What else could you ask for?
We had a team dinner here and it was such a great spot to have a group and the service was excellent!
I was REALLY disappointed that dog are allowed in the back patio. here we are coming out of covid and there were 3 dogs - 1 very large dog who's tail was in the next tables plates.. it was gross and the owner acted as if we were all in her home! Their tented patio is more like an enclosed space to not really outdoors and the dogs have to pass thru the restaurant to get to the back patio which is against the health code.
We won't go back until they change their policy of only allowing dogs to eat out front vs. back patio. It's so unfair to people who do NOT want to eat with animals.
Server was very accommodating with challenging kids and out of town visitors we had ion our party.
Starbelly is always a great choice in my opinion. The food is good and the server was attentive, but not overbearing.
Wonderful urban chic restaurant ! Great food, Brunch until 3 daily is a great option, and the menu choices are varied and excellent. There is both a front outdoor dining area and a really nice back patio. Will return and recommend to friends and family.
always love starbelly and am so happy that they are here!
Brunch at Starbelly's on Sunday was great, everyone in our group loved it.
Very tasty food served up by friendly and fun staff.
Birthday. Terrible. Waitress forgot the birthday candle. Instead of making it right, she just came and said oops and that was it. Very disappointing. Drinks always took forever - longer than food. Food was average. Not sure what the hype is w this place
The food is delicious and the service is always great. I love taking my out of town guests here.
The service was awful. Took 10 minutes until we finally flagged someone down to get started. Food was bland and expensive. Wait staff was taking shots and avoiding eye contact to not help us. Had to try and flag down our server 3+ times to get a box and the check.
The food was good. We had: 2 pizzas, one with the bacon and the other with the chorizo, spaghetti, mussels, fries, which was outstanding with the 3 sauces!
What turned me off was their time limit! The hostess reminded me TWICE that I had to vacate the table at 7:15. An hour and a half for 4 people is not nearly enough. We were having a good time and we could’ve stayed for dessert but ding-ding - our time was up! I hope this isn’t their standard practice and perhaps they’re just trying to make up some revenue.
ordered medium rare burger got well done
bun was burned
menu said hand-cut fries didn’t get hand-cut fries
Awesome place! Great staff. Loved the ambiance.
Our waiter who serviced us, apologies for not remembering his name, was a complete GEM. His service was top notch and his humor made our night. Fabulous employee! Many thanks
Great food and service!
repeat customer, good local spot for business or friends getogether.
The service was completely spotty - waited 10 minutes and then started stacking our own dishes after we had ordered coffee.
I love Starbelly. It’s my neighborhood go-to for comfort food, fresh and well-prepared, and delicious cocktails. Friendly servers and the managers are the best!
Standard as expected with a very "le brunch bourgeoisie" touch! The latino kid host seemed to have confused "sense of urgency" for "delusional grandeur airs". Mind you, he was highly rude to my guest as he waited for me...maybe instead of throwing shade...he could throw a smile here and there? The food was edible, hidden in salt, nothing to rave about the Sunny Side Joe's ordered. The Chilaquiles? I am Mexican, they were legit!! Sangrias? Meh. ! We would have been better off with the Prosecco Mimosas, I mean who can mess up mimosas! Right?!
Our waiter was on point, attentive, courteous and quick! THUMBS UP and a YEY!
This the place to show off your designer bags and sneakers and well trained dobermans!
Advice to management? Excellent customer service starts at the door. ;)
Service was very poor, and didn't take severe allergies into account at all, even though we mentioned it to the server 3 times, and double checked before they put the order in.
Our server was wonderfully attentive and friendly without being overbaring.
Had the chilaquiles and they were incredibly bland with very little meat. The salad served with it had incredibly tough / unripe cherry tomatoes.
The ambience, service, etc. are all nice, but if the food doesn't deliver, what's the point of the supporting roles?
The liver pâté was amazing
Only downside was the service by one of the waiter. We showed up on time, then had to wait 10min to get the table ready (which is fine), but then we were barely sat that the waiter said that we only had this table for 90min and we would have to leave on time.
Then when we were just done with our drinks and food we got the same waiter asking if we wanted the check now as we were not ordering more..
Otherwise good food, good cocktail, just this waiter who wasn't having a good day.
Service was extremely slow. We were sat at 8 pm and told the next reservation would be taking our table at 9:15. At 8:20 our server appeared and collected drink and starter orders. At 8:45 she informed us the first round of drinks would be another 15 mins wait. By 9 pm we had our starters and first round of drinks and were again reminded we had 15 mins….
We enjoyed the experience! Thank you!
Service and food was as wonderful as usual.
Starbelly is one San Francisco restaurant which has triumphantly overcome every obstacle presesnted during Shelter In Place. Congratulations to all.
Starbelly had and will be a staple of great food and service in the Castro. I love coming here with or without friends for the ambiance. Drinks and food.
Thank you Starbelly family!
just found out about this great place - luved especially the backyard outdoor covered patio eating area. The menu was tasty; interesting; the soup was delicious; didn't get overwhelmed by the menu choices; the service was very good - attentive, but not hovering; appreciate consciousness towards health safety. I wish this place a long,
prosperous life. Much peace.
I ordered a hamburger and fries. There was so much food, I could only eat about half. Very tasty - it was a shame not to consume all of it.
We ordered hamburgers cooked Medium, but they were both cooked well done. Fries were very good and a generous helping.
The 2 entrees came 16 minutes apart with no apology or explanation from the staff. Unprofessional.
Phenomenal food and drinks. Literally the only complaint I had was needing extra maple syrup (purely bc I have a bit of a sweet tooth, I actually think the dish was served perfect as is for 95% of the population) and the time it took to acquire said maple syrup. Would eat brunch here again in a heartbeat though, nearly a perfect dining experience AND at a very reasonable price point.
Easy sit down, menu needs to be updated but enjoyed the drinks and food
The po-boy was a chicken sandwich. Cocktails were lack luster. And we were plopped at a hi traffic bar area when there were visible areas outside.
Food was good and cocktails were excellent. I would return.
Totally fine but not very inspired food nor very fresh seeming produce or fish. Service was very ooor and person kept us waiting long and then went to throw away food when we said we wanted to go. Big decline since it’s pretty COVID peak
All of my kids aged 2-8 loved the meal and the experience. 5 stars was their rating! Perfect for families as we had our own outdoor nook.
Probably the worst chicken n waffles I’ve ever had. This will be the last time I go to a place that’s way overhyped and “popular.” I’ll stick with the hole the wall’s
