Nice heated outdoor patio. Good food.
Drinks are amazing. Food... not so much
Pisco punch, blood orange salad, and scallops were good.
Food is pretty good but ever so slightly outdated (that Mission competition tho) and inconsistent (changing of chefs). Otherwise, super sexy secluded date spot 😍.
Great food and drinks at this gem in FiDi. Heard they have a good happy hour
Cheese board and prunes stuffed with goat cheese
Hidden treasure in a tourist area
Burrata to start. Great wine list, and food is all very high quality.
By the way. It's not bacon wrapped prunes it's fig and amazing. Get the veggie cocas.
Try the lamb tartare and ceviche apps!
sad how the very poor service is opposite to the great food
Chicken liver patè, Rioja, bacon bonbon, winter squash soup, everything!
I had the Bacon Bon Bons for my first time the other night, and holy crap. Breathtaking. As was everything else I had, but those bon bons are the things dreams are made of!
Great date spot!
BACON BON BONS ALL THE WAY. Seafood tajine is also good for sharing :)
Super bomb. But don't tell Vasana
Beignets, best dessert ever!
New York rib eye.
Forgot which appetizer this was...
Hen, so damn good.
Bacon bon bons!
Get the meatballs.
Quinoa vodka! So smooth!
Lamb tartare is only served Mondays.
Never a bad meal; always a spectacular culinary feast.
Absolutely stunning. Start with the lamb tongue with sweetheart, then work your way to the duck with dirty farro. Wash it down with a signature cocktail and tell your friends about this amazing place.
The duck is really good!
The bacon wrapped Bon bons are a must.
Try the Valencia rice a la plancha, as well as croquetas ($8) stuffed with braised rabbit and melty manchego.
Order the Jamon Iberico.
Try the rabbit with a glass of white wine for a true French experience!
The food is great here, but I love just sitting at the bar and ordering cocktails! Try anything with mezcal, you won't be disappointed.
The sexiest restaurant in San Francisco!
Amazing flatbread! Lovely decor.
Table agrees. Want to makes sweet love to the olive oil ice cream.
The calamari are truly a gem
Lamb tartare, rock fish, and sangria
The Iberian food is a natural partner to the best Sherry list in the Bay Area.
You're going to want to try the beignets. They are spectacular.
Ask Ramon for whatever you want...he can make it.
Absolutely magnificent Old Fashioned's!
Get the beignets for dessert. Extra naughty sauce, keep the chocolate sauce. Hold the lemon.
Ask for a Radification!
Food blogger Anita of Dessert First recommends Gitane. “The cuisine is a fabulously funky mix of Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Moroccan. Don’t miss the bacon-wrapped prunes with goat cheese.”
Must try: lamb tartare
Great bar, super hip vibe. Will definetly be back:-)
Very definition of a hidden gem.
