Adorable restaurant with very good food! Had eggs Benedict and an omelette. Both were really good! 2 mimosas topped it off. The server was very friendly and accommodating, as well as the busser. I’d definitely go back! The brussel sprouts looked great, and the home made gnocchi sounded amazing!

It appeared that there were plenty of staff working but our waitress seemed to be in the weeds. It took about 15 minutes for anyone to acknowledge that we were at the table. We ordered 2 cocktails and 2 appetizers and told the waitress we’d order dinner when she came back. We got the appetizers about 30 minutes after we ordered them. A few minutes later my dining partner got her cocktail and then 10 minutes after that I got mine. The cheese plate was delicious and the sourdough bread was awesome. Once we finished them we tried to flag down our waitress but she never made eye contact. Just kept running by our table without looking even when I tried to speak to her. I’ve waited tables and I know things can get busy BUT just ACKNOWLEDGE people. When we finally got her attention instead of ordering dinner we just got our check and went somewhere else for dinner.

We went for happy hour but they only do high ball for happy hour cocktail, so we got regular cocktails + truffle fries. Fries are bit overpriced but tastes pretty good. Cocktails are ok too. Overall thumbs up for ambience, ok for food and drinks.

We were going to be late for our reservation and I called to let them know and they graciously forwarded our reservation 30 minutes. The blonde manhattan is a great play on a regular one. Very good. Chris, our server, described it as "Herbacious and tastes like Christmas in your mouth" and it didn't disappoint! Food (clam linguini, rigatoni and cheeseburger) was tasty, wait staff friendly and professional and Chris, our server, was outstanding! He helped us out with his expert recommendations. Our first time visiting and we will definitely be back. We had an extremely enjoyable dining experience.

I found this restaurant through Open Table and we loved it! The food was really delicious, and we had the best waitress! Their menu was creative, and also had 'regular' things on it. The wine was good (even though they had tons of beers), and we sat in a somewhat outdoor area...that was very fun! Our waitress was also completely enjoyable in that she not only provided great service, but she was very personable and helpful.

I would definitely go back and look forward to going there again in the future. It's a perfect place to go before going to the Giants games because of its location, but also just a fun place to enjoy a good, low-key meal.

Fantastic place to eat with really great staff and management. You can tell the people working there are having fun and it shows in their great service. The food was delicious. It's a tough choice between the ribs and the burger. Go with both.

This place is such a neighborhood gem. Great craft cocktails as well as wine/beer selection ... super tasty food ... awesome staff.

Gorgeous bar seating - including high top tables to accommodate your group by the window - a super sweet outdoor dining space, spacious indoor dining, AND ... a NEW (shh-shh!!) secret hideaway, cozy, lounge-y space just around the corner. Your own little living room away from your living room. Except *this* living room has table service.

The Fly Trap folks have been THROUGH the pandemic wringer, and are coming out the other side BETTER THAN EVER. Check 'em out!!! You'll be glad you did . . .

Great date night atmosphere. Super friendly people and great food. The ribeye was delicious and cooked perfectly. Brussel sprouts were on point and the chocolate mousse is to die for! Super close to our hotel, The Clancy. We loved our experience here.

Although easy on/off 101, traffic during commute hours is a nightmare and parking is expensive/difficult before 6 PM. The food is most disappointing from the beginning to the end. The bartender is knowledgeable and the service is excellent.

The only feedback I have is that our food was not hot when we got it. It was not cold, but it was also not hot - and that would have likely made this a 5 star experience. The service, the cocktails, the food, were all very good and we will visit The Fly Trap again for sure.

Late lunch on Saturday, 3pm. Only brunch menu available before 4pm. Options were limited but all were good.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Since it was in off-peak hours the room was fairly empty and allowed for easy conversation.
Will come back next visit in evening to try expanded menu.
