Only beer and wine. Not great. We ordered a bunch of appetizers; the fried potato and eggs, mushroom cannelloni, burrata and squash salad, and the octopus with sun-chokes. Everything was pretty tasteless, with the exception of the octopus which had this overpowering crunching taste I can’t pinpoint. But it was not good. The fried potato and egg app was the best and that’s only because you can’t mess up fried anything. The main courses were the short rib and the olive oil poached trout. Neither was good. Pretty disappointed all around about my one night dinner plan for SF for a quick weekend trip.

Overall nice place with good quality and fresh foood and prompt service.

The waiter noticed that I presented her with a gift and intuited it was her birthday. As a surprise he brought a small version of the PB & J donut on a plate that read Happy Birthday. She was delighted and I was impressed....Nice touch. Joni

Some of the food here was good and some wasn’t. The burger was over cooked and flavorless. The shrimp cocktail also was flavorless and amounts are so small. They use some modern gastronomy techniques at this restaurant restaurant and the value you get for money is ridiculous. They do have a good beer and wine selection. The potato egg snack with cauliflower purée was our favorite thing. The tomato and burrata salad was good as well. The French onion soup was our least fav. The carbonara was pretty good. The apple tart dessert was lacking in size and flavor. We won’t come back.

Checking in and sitting down was smooth, but the food took a very long time to come, despite the fact that it's prix fixe. Our server was friendly, but a bit abrasive each time he came. Food wise, for $25, it's decent value for 3 courses. That said, I was expecting a bit more in terms of quality based on the high bar I have for them for dinner service. An example is their fried chicken dish, where the crust/skin separated very easily from the meat, to the point where I had a shell to eat separately. The breakfast sandwich wasn't too bad, but felt just like a regular ham sandwich that could easily be made at home with grocery store ingredients (ie. it wasn't special).

The brunch menu was limited and it took a long time for our order to come out. This place would be better for dinner.

Because our friends were late coming from Marin, we got there at 5:45 instead of 5:30, when Stone's Throw opened. We were greeted with: "Oh, I thought you weren't coming." Fifteen minutes after opening time, restaurant still half empty. And it turned out Open Table was informed we had no-showed - I had to write them to correct it. Then the seafood pasta appetizer was ice cold, the portions in general were small, though the pasta with short rib sauce was still good. Then we ordered one dessert - the doughnuts, and they brought chocolate cake. The waitress was very nice - didn't charge for the seafood pasta and quickly brought the right dessert. But it was overall an unpleasant dining experience at a place where we had some very good meals in the past.
