    Fantastic soup. Also love that the house wine is available by the oz. Best part: desert.

    Located in the heart of Castro, it’s one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood. The only thing is that it's full of straight white couples...

    Wine by the ounce. Perfect food. Great bread. You can walk in if you're 1-2 people.

    Good food though overhyped in view of how difficult it is to obtain a reservation here.

    Probably the best restaurant in Castro. Great for dates or a small group. Pork chop, lumberjack cake, and bacon beignets were amazing.

    Good food and service. Little pricey, $300+for 4 people (we brought our on wine, 2010 Stags Leap). Not a date night place, but great for a very special occasion, if you save for it.

    Best food we had in US on our ending 2 weeks trip. First chef so far that actually understands balance and kicks ass at it. Service also incredibly attentive. The lentil/beetroot we had was ** veg!

    Don’t judge the lumberjack cake by its color. The flavor is rich and layered, thanks to Medjool dates, pears and coconut. Read more

    The snapper and the duck confit were amazing, as were the appetizers and sides (Brussels sprouts) we had. Wine by the ounce is really fun. You can get in the same day if you take a 10 pm reservation.

    Their #quail was the best, the #steak (picture) was good, the affogato was absolutely delicious. I would go back just for the #affogato 10/10 would recommend. Great location for a pre-theater meal.

    Babette steak was tasty and healthy choice but the best was duck. Never had duck this soft and sensitively flavored. Perfect with 1.5$ per ounce wine.
