The food was great can't go wrong with the chicken sandwich or the chorizo sandwich.
The service was fantastic very attentive and provided great recommendations.
A pleasant experience with excellent attentive service. The menu is rather limited, could use more small plates on the menu. Overall, enjoyed dinner and the kids did too.
I always return to this place. It is conveniently located for a number of things I do downtown. The waitstaff is awesome and it is a friendly place with a good menu and a pleasant atmosphere.
Service was terrible - Continually had to get waiters attention for water refills The Halibut was overcooked, and took nearly 2 hours to finish our meal.
We mentioned this at the end of the meal, and didn't seem to care one way or the other.
My friend was 30 minutes late so I wound up ordering without him. My salad came out pretty quickly and was decent taste and portion. My friend arrived and he wound up ordering the same thing as me, so we sat for another 30 minutes but no salad came. I eventually gave him the rest of my salad since I only hate half (see above re: decent sized portions) and we cancelled his order. They were super apologetic and wound up comping our meal, even though we only ordered essentially 1 salad which was really nice of them.
This was the perfect place to go after a movie at Metreon! Good food at reasonable prices in a pleasant room.
Nice venue for a business lunch. Not too noisy, efficient service, food good.
Bacon wrapped shrimp was very flavorful and not overly rich. Great cocktails.
Very salty food, the price does not match the quality, and the ambiance is mediocre. Was disappointed.
Food sucked. Pork Loin had a bad taste. Service and ambiance is good, though.
I don’t know why more locals don’t come here. The food is delicious, service is quick and friendly, and I think it’s a good value for the quality and ambiance you’re getting.
The food was great and the atmosphere fun. Strongly recommend a reservation because seating is limited.
Excellent Find in SF - really great staff. Food was excellent, save for the pizza that seemed undercooked and soggy - needs a bit more time in the over to firm up he crust. Great appetizers and fun drinks.
We chose this spot because it was across the street from our hotel. It looks dark from the outside but the interior feels open and airy. The food was good and the service was excellent.
Great service and delicious food! We liked the decor too.
Great food and great service! The setting was nice, not very noisy and good space.
Great staff, super accommodating and friendly!
Loved the restaurant. Food was excellent. Perfect for my son's birthday with a table off to the side for 6 people! Wait staff was very attentive. We made it within minutes of the happy hour and our server was nice enough to still off it to us. That is very cool. Prices were very reasonable. Kale salad with added salmon was excellent. Prawns were delicious. Pizza was excellent. Can't wait to go back.
Waitress was friendly and attentive. Food was good, overall an enjoyable evening. We had a table in a side room, main room was a bit noisy.
The bottom line is that could have been a really really good meal was made mediocre by kitchen chaos. Servers tried hard. The "food runners" brought the appetizers at the right temps, though slowly, and the main dish arrived with my wife's pizza looking good and almost stone cold. Fixes took so long, we gave up. Too bad. Our server was energetic and informative, my food was good, but in total, it just didn't work well. Thus, value was undercut.
