OpenTable Diner (San Francisco)
4.0  Dined on March 11, 2016

I would say the food was overall very good. Nicely presented with some modern twists. Spice level was good. Perhaps a bit more on the expensive end considering pretty standard Thai dishes. I was mainly disappointed by their cocktails. We had several different kinds, and although they were good, they were not as we expected flavor wise. For example, I was excited to try the Thai Ice Tea martini, because who doesn't love Thai Ice Tea...and it really barely tasted like the beloved drink (more like a hint). Same with the Lychee cocktail. I was expecting delicious Lychee flavor, and it tasted more lemony. We also got the Matcha Creme Brulee and it came out under cooked and watery, so they had to bring out another one.

I plan to come back and try their Happy Hour menu...probably not for dinner though.

We hadn't been here for a couple of years and we missed this place! The food is as good as always and the service has really improved. Despite there being several large groups, the servers were attentive and brought us our orders quickly.

The food and staff at Summer Summer are top notch. They have a great happy hour too. Tastefully designed inside. Fresh ingredients, helpful staff, keeps us returning!

we started going to summer summer because of its convenient location. but the food has gotten better and better. it is now definitely worth a little drive: not a "destination restaurant," but a very good place fora low key, group friendly, reasonably priced good time/good food evening.

Parking makes this a questionable choice. Food is great but take uber or something else.

modern furnishings, moderate lighting, rather loud acoustics, but solid thai food. the yellow curry was great. Solid happy hour till 7 on Fridays too. Service lacking a bit, talked super soft but then couldn't hear me at all.

We saw the write up in the Chronicle for restaurants in Emeryville and decided to try my favorite season. It was fun, affordable and delicious. We will definitely be back with friends.

The food is good especially for lunch. However, the service is not the best.

Really disappointed. Food was not very good. Dumplings had cold spots. Pad Thai noodles were very chewy, fried tofu was dry and the chicken was rubbery. Other dishes are also pretty disappointing. Atmosphere and service was pretty good. They just need a new chef.

Still love this place for the food and atmosphere but this time the service slowed to almost a crawl. Nevertheless we'll be back.

The food was a lot for a single diner. I probably would come back for Happy Hour to try all the small plates. The sticky rice and mango dessert was pleasing to the eyes and palette.

This place is great for grabbing a bite before or after a film in Emeryville. It is very clean with nice decor and friendly service. A mix of happy hour specials and their regular menu makes a lovely meal at a very reasonable price.

We've been here a couple of times before during the week and loved the food and service, however; this was not the case we when we brought our friends on a Saturday evening. The food tasted very blend and the corn fritters were way over cooked, the service was lacking as well. We asked for water service three times, the restaurant was not busy so not sure what happened with the overall service.
