OpenTable Diner (San Francisco)
5.0  Dined 6 days ago

Looked at the menu and was intrigued by a couple of the items. Most notably the Pork Belly and Waffles and the Grilled Octopus. Both my wife and myself had some huge expectations for these dishes and they meet them. The Octopus was great, grilled to perfection. The Pork Belly and Waffle was Oh My God good. The Pork Belly was tender and crispy at the same time. The jelly they served with it just finished it off. We shared the Beef Shoulder Loin and it was just good. Still worth it but the Pork Belly is a hard act to follow. Then we had dessert, we had their signature dessert, I am going to say its the Granny Smith Cheesecake. It was awesome. The tastes melded like heaven and was thinking about ordering a second one. I would so go back to this restaurant if I get a chance.

Our server was great and the food was excellent, our friends who are local recommended Urban Tavern for dinner and we are glad they did. I loved the pastrami seasoned pork tenderloin.

This is a solid good establishment. The pork tenderloin was do well, but not exceptional and the faux peaking style jidori chicken was good. The quantity was enough to fulfill a person who had a lunch 4 hours prior. The service was very good with a attentive wait staff. Overall, you need food, by the Hilton and in a relaxed environment, Go Here.

Food and service were okay but restaurant being located next to hotel lobby with lobby access made the restaurant feel like a cafeteria. Pricing wasn’t like a cafeteria.

Went for Christmas dinner. Portions were small with too much emphasis on flair and not enough on taste. Overall it was OK, but expected more given the price.

A real foodie spot. Glad the friendly efficient waiter alerted us to the fact that the last Chinese style roasted chicken with sticky rice and bok choy was going fast. We snagged the last one and it was wonderful. Who'd have thought a restaurant in the Hilton would be so good, reasonably priced and enjoyable.

The food and cocktails were excellent. Our server was very kind and welcoming (and did a good job upselling their fluffy, delicious bread to us). I got the pumpkin gnocchi, which was very comforting and delicious.

Great Food & service. This was a desperate last minute pick pre theater . Very pleasantly surprised. We were party of 5 and everyone loved their food. Excellent wait staff and manager Daniel very nice and accommodating getting our group in last minute. Atmosphere nice but a bit big hotel.

The lighting is awful. They use very cheap fluorescent pendant lights in the dining area that cycle on and off so slowly that if you move your menu or your hands too quickly you’ll get motion sickness. The bar area has better lighting. Very confused as to why they’d use such bad lights in the main dining area.

I was impressed! We started with the roasted wild mushrooms which were delicious as were the roasted carrots. For my main I had the skirt steak which was cooked perfectly. I'd definitely go back. Perfect location to the Curran Theatre as well.
