    Try the rich, crispy pig's-trotter croquettes paired w/ luscious pig's-head salumi & bright chile-lime vinaigrette. The seared calamari & octopus bring char-grilled notes to spicy chorizo & clams. Read more

    Dint get the green goddess salad - there was a worm in mine. Also, the "meh" food doesn't justify the rude yet slow service. Do yourself a favor - run for RN74, Boulevard, Waterbar or Roasthouse.

    Perfect for happy hour after work.

    Be prepared to have a cocktail (or three) since the service is soooo slow. Please, just let us sit down! :'(

    Sit at the bar and order the "Secret Burger"; they do a different one every week, and every time it's amazing. Especially when it's the pork belly and kimchi one. Read more

    Pork Chops and Beef excellent choices. Try the old bitter monk beverage.

    Order the duck, pair it with a glass of pinot noir and conclude it with the pumpkin beignets. Yumm

    The benedict here is made with lots of pork belly and is served on a house made english muffin. With thick a creamy sauce topping sous-vide eggs and smokey tomato compote this one is a hit! Read more

    Although the food is wonderful. I feel like we were treated very poorly compared to surrounding tables. Sorry I wasn't in my Gucci.

    the cocktails and quail are so tasty. I know the two don't sound like they match, but they do.

    You must have their Crispy Pig Trotters and Coca Pisco Sour.

    Prospect cocktail and buffalo carpaccio. Be prepared for some of the worst service in San Francisco.

    Ricotta donuts are awesome! If you like cinnamon don't miss the monkey bread too!

    The crispy fried tortillas in this version of Huevos Rancheros are covered with silky black beans, a ranchero sauce and savory roasted tomatoes. The cilantro cream adds the perfect touch. Read more

    Person who said get the halibut is crazy. It's all about the New York steak. So much flavor! The halibut was completely bland in comparison.

    Try the Pompelmo Frizzante on a warm afternoon - it's so deliciously refreshing! For an appetizer, can't go wrong with the herbed goat cheese crostini. Read more

    To drink, The Whaler; or "on tap" wine -- super reasonably priced! For eats, the Ruben-style beef tongue carpaccio & ice cream sandos

    Try the foie. Its melt in your mouth goodness and the gelee is the icing on the goose. Ask for extra bread.

    The food was awesome. I loved the Goddess Green Salad. The chicken Roulade and scallop entree were magnificent also. I would definitely eat here again and suggest it to everyone.

    The "classy lassy" is a delicious, beautiful cocktail, but men - even if you love hendrick's gin - do not order it! As the name implies, this one is meant for the ladies.

  • Attune Foods

    If the halibut is on the menu, don't look twice, order it. The whole wheat crepes are a savory filling vegetarian option and are also great to share.

    The Pork chops is delicious! Pair it with a beautiful red wine for added awesomeness! Definitely recommend the Banana Sundae and the cheesecake :)

    Happy hour is a fantastic value. Try the fried shishito peppers if they have them. Delicious.

  • Tracy A.

    Don't try to order from the bar menu at a table because that's apparently not permitted. 1 of our 4 guests wanted a burger and we were denied. We ultimately walked out. Bad service, bad attitude.
