First time as we just moved into the neighborhood- this will be our place! It’s one of the oldest restaurants in SF and it has incredible charm and character. Service was exceptional, cocktails amazing, and the food... fantastic. Seriously- the entire service team was two steps ahead of us anticipating our every need. Love this place. So cool and a San Francisco must!

The staff is super friendly and prompt. Felt totally safe with COVID measures. The owner made a point to stop by our table. We will be back.

Nice surprise in he middle of the city. Their outdoor space is pretty awesome with your own personal heat lamp and nice details like hooks to hang you purse or masks.

The brunch menu seems a little puzzled together but everything we had was delish and well done. Those fries and even the ketchup were amazing! Service was on point and overall a great experience.

Great American dinner fare, generous portions, classic flavors. Service was wonderful, the wine by the glass selection better than expected, and all in all, a fantastic experience. Would go again, certainly recommend.

I love Huevos Rancheros for brunch. Had one of the Best Ever at Fly Trap on Saturday. Some kind of aioli sauce on top, bacon added inside, lovely salsa...it was divine.

They have pandemic dining really dialed in: tables for two in a beautiful alley (no wind!), with heaters above every table. Fantastic friendly service from everyone working there. And, cherry on top of all the goodness, they make great cocktails.

The servers were great and attentive but not too much so. Alonzo was one of the servers and a tall guy was too whose name we didn’t get but he makes awesome spicy margaritas! Huevos Rancheros was the best I’ve ever had!

They've adapted really well to covid restrictions -- a thin lane with distant tables and heat lamps, servers wearing masks and asking guests to do the same when serving.

We have always loved Fly Trap living in the neighborhood, both before and during the pandemic. Wonderful indoor and outdoor ambience, a tasty and diverse array of food, and always warm service. We are so glad it’s open again and it’s our go-to spot!

Thank God, Staff are trained for COVID-19 protocol. Food was great, service was excellent. For that ambient, I prefer to hear Jazz or something instead of Hiphop. We didn’t get birthday candle even we put note when we made a reservation. Still ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Really cool alley seating. Casual, eclectic art on walls, plants, and each of the small tables has a heater. Nice cocktail menu, good food, nice people taking care of you.

Kind of a hidden gem.

Loved having brunch in their garden side patio. I got an omelette and a Bellini and they were both fantastic. I tried not to eat all the hash browns but I couldn’t stop with those either! Service was attentive but not pushy at all and I was very impressed with the low check price at the end!

Such a nice place for dates! I went for their weekend brunch. The covered outdoor little alley is so beautiful with individual heater lamp. Perfect for chilly winter days. Servers are extremely attentive (to the point of slightly annoying when you're on a date lol! But it's a good thing) and friendly. I got a breakfast burrito, which I thought was good, though nothing special at all. Price is ok. You pay for the ambience I think.. though maybe regular dinner or lunch food is better than the brunch? Overall, I still highly recommend!

“Outdoor Dining” has just reopened from COVID. I’ve been in SF for the past month for work. I was walking by the restaurant and looked over the menu and figured I would order take out because my Hotel was next door. Then I realize they were going to be open for outdoor dining. That was a nice change because I’ve been getting food to go or delivery and eating in my hotel room with plastic utensils and such. This was such a nice change. I don’t remember the owners name. She was super helpful with service I had a martini and ended up taking a cocktail for the road back to my hotel. Their outdoor dining was setup in between the two buildings with small tables lining a wall. Each table has a heat lamp above the table and is covered from the rain. I will definitely come back to visit this restaurant in the future. Our poor F&B industry really needs our support.

We continue to be impresses and grateful about terrific job that the Fly Trap is doing during the pandemic. The food continues to be of a high quality and the menu has evolved with several new items. We particularly love the Brussel sprouts, the burger and also the pasta dishes. The service is terrific. And the setting is intimate and charming. They have used a sort of alley way between the two buildings to create a terrific dining area. Each table has its own personal heater, which makes the outdoor setting very comfortable. We will continue to come back again and again!

5 star covid outdoor dining experience. Noticed their website mentions every table has a dedicated heater :-) took my husband there for dinner. Service was excellent. Drinks arrived within 2 minutes each time, amazing. Food was delicious. Tipped $50 for outstanding service and effort. We were very happy to be able to enjoy such a nice night out during the second shutdown. Highly recommend, the individual table heaters are awesome!!
