    The bartender with the sf tattoo on his neck asked me to pay for my food before I got it??? I've never been asked to pay for food before it came... Btw I ordered it for here. Terrible bartender

    They tried to charge me a 18% gratuity for a horrible service, and the explanation was: this is a touristy area. Not coming back again.

    This place needs to invest serious money in improving atmosphere, food quality and some elements of service. Brilliant location and it could really be a great younger tourist destination---with work.
