    It is almost always possible to get a table here last minute, even if you are a larger group. Cocktails are great, and service is nice. Pro-tip: Great brunch on Sundays 10am-2pm (yes it is back!).

    You might not find a better bar program in the city. Beautiful Sea Ranch in the City vibe. Good sand dabs when we were there. Love the tall strong rum drinks. Top notch whiskey sour.

    Get a Jack Rabbit, apple brandy with orange, lemon, maple syrup and bitters or the Whiz Bang with Scotch, vermouth, grenadine, absinthe, bitters. They have heated lamps so grab a seat outside. Read more

    It's called a Kentucky Buck and it's not on the menu. It's got bourbon and ginger and it's boozy and refreshing at the same time. Now go talk to your bartender...

    Incredible cocktail selection and friendly bartenders make this a great spot to go before a show at Slim's. Try the house old fashioned. It's barrel aged!

    Local chef Traci des Jardins picks Bar Agricole as one of her favorite cocktail places in SF. Co-owner Thad Vogler told us "start with a Ti Punch and an Old Fashioned with some of our charcuterie."

    The "California" version 
of Holland gin comes from St. George Spirits and stars in its Rye Gin 
Old Fashioned. For the cherry effect, Lane swears by the Leopold Bros.
 Maraschino from Colorado.

    I enjoy the decor and atmosphere. Cocktails are delicious and appetizers are tasty, but main dishes are so salty! Tried the monkey face eel and lamb chops- both were hella salty! Menu changes nightly.

    Amazing cocktail program: try the black tea sour - taste like a lemon meringue pie. And the house old fashioned is one of the best drinks I've had in the city.

    With more than a frisson of hipster in the air, Bar Agricole explores this lesser-known rum style with a swagger. Other delectable cocktails are served, as is small-plate, big-ticket food.

    Come here for the cocktails. The food is ok, but don't believe them when they say family size portions. The wine is expensive. Stick to the cocktails. The tequila fix is fantastic and spicy.

    $15 cocktails? Steep. Huge space, nice bartenders, and not crowded. Same owners as Trou Nomad, so it's fancy food and expensive alcohol. price is all inclusive though, so it almost evens out.

    Cocktails were very good. Food was ok. Burger is only the bun and very good meat with mustard - that's it. They are supplied by local dealers. Cool atmosphere and also includes outside seating.

    There is different types of expensive, one is the well-whatever-its-super-good kind, the other one is the are-they-out-of-their-mind kind. This is the latter sort. Terrible ROI on food.
