What Insiders Are Saying
A great bar that doesn’t quite have the restaurant part figured out yet.
Old school meets new world. Amazing ambiance and music in the very private Viking Room. You can never imagine what you are in for going down that flight of stairs. Pure magic and San Francisco feel. Really recommend this place. ❤️
Food was fantastic, especially the burger, and cocktails phenomenal. We'd go back to the bar for both, but the Viking Room has a weird ambiance and deplorable decor. Feels awkward.
This place is fucking terrific and you should go there right now and eat all the food and drink all the drinks.
Former funky music venue with good food transformed into a soul-less, expense account destination. "Live" background music seems like a weak effort to retain this element with a sign announcing that each diner's bill will include a surcharge for this mediocre element. Menu very limited and expensive at price points that will eliminate any local regulars. Service was attentive but departed through the empty and equally pricey lower bar with a chill. The ground level bar seemed vibrant and full so if we return, we will stay above ground next time.
Fabulous burgers! Fabulous cioppino! Fabulous french fries! Great oysters. Great Manhattans! Friendly service -- just wonderful!
We went to the Viking Room with expectations of the adventurous food preparations at Trick Dog. The Viking menu is very limited, but the presentations are excellent. The oysters and ciappino were outstanding. A guest won't be disappointed by the quality. Our server was friendly and attentive to our special requests. After dinner we moved the the dining room bar.
The bartender spent time with us chatting and explaining different liquor choices. We definitely would go back.
so glad to have live jazz playing while celebrating a birthday. also we ordered over time and they handled that with ease. great drinks, lovely staff.
Thought we'd check out this new version of restaurant at the Swedish American Hall. We both really enjoyed our food. Top quality, excellent, attentive, friendly service. Chic, vintage vibe to the room. Limited but tasty menu. We will go back.
Fabulous food! Fabulous service. Fabulous music. Perfect!
Chicken was great. Live music way to loud and intrusive.
This was my first time at Cafe Du Nord since it has opened it's doors post-reno. We came for the oysters and had an overall enjoyable time! The main comment is that it was VERY loud. We were seated next to a rambunctious group, coupled with the extremely loud speakers/band, was not great for conversation. Overall, a cool vibe.
We came and had dinner at Cafe du Nord because my cousin was playing in the Viking Room that evening. The food was outstanding; we got oysters and hamachi crudo and coipino and the burger and they were all super good. The main waitress (brunette) rushed us a bit but perhaps because she was training someone new. The trainee was very friendly (blonde) a bit more inviting which we liked.
My cousin put on a great show and it made the ambiance very fun. The sound was not too loud in the closed space which was nice; you could hear the other people talk.
All in all, a great dinner experience!
Drinks are invincible, they nailed it on the decor. Go for the burger, comeback for the chicken. Trust us.
Great place for a date. Good ambiance. Jazz band was playing the night we went. Pianist and soulful jazz singer. I will definitely be back.
