    Recomend: Uni pancake, ricotta pancake, ice cream sandwich. Garlic bread is AMAZING. Good: duck liver, trout and avocado dips, rose mousse, pork belly, sausage. So-so: all vegetables. Oyster is meh.

    Everything is amazing! You can have a fantastic meal off of the dim sum style offering, but the menu also has some fantastic items.

    Innovative format, with both off the menu and dim sum options. Everything is fairly small, so if it looks good just go for it

    I honestly expected more. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Some plates are unique such as the mousse foie. However other ones are just good, not exceptional. Price is acceptable. No cocktails.

    Everything is delicious. Cool concept - small servings so you get to try different dishes. Personally prefer this over the progress next door.

    At this dim sum style restaurant, everything they bring is tempting but you must ask for dumpling if they didn't come around. $3 but it's 100 times satisfaction guaranteed.

    The "World Peace" peanut muscovado milk shot, a creamy shot of peanut milk with a pinch of black muscovado (dark, unrefined sugar), might actually save the world. Read more

    American small plates served dim sum style (imagine dinner party/dim sum mashup).

    Extraordinarily popular and has managed to cross dim sum format with New Californian cuisine. It can get pricey, but it ultimately lives up to all of the hype. Read all about it on

    A crazy, hectic & fun atmosphere. Sit at the 2 top drink bar and watch everything swirl around you. Just trust whatever is on the menu that night will be delicious

    Trendy spot with some of the best eats in SF. The quail potsticker with broth and the tartare are favorites along with the four barrel coffee panna cotta.

    Order any and all pancakes, such as sourdough with ricotta, sauerkraut, and Pecorino, and always get the “state bird,” a.k.a. fried quail. Desserts are straightforward and lovely. Read more

    A decent number of vegetarian dishes. Almond biscuits with duck liver mousse, garlic bread with burrata, and state bird quail are absolute gems. Definitely a must-try once kind of restaurant.

    Sit at the chef's counter and enjoy the behind-the-scenes action of the food preparation. The dim sum dishes are all great. I suggest ending with a savory dessert of duck liver mousse.

    Everything we had here was excellent. That said, we will probably visit their sister restaurant first when we come back. Both are fun, great atmospheres, fab service, and totally enjoyable.

    Of the maybe ten dishes I tried, all were forgettable. Not worth the hype or the two month reservation at all.

    Probably one of the best meals I've had. It's a Michelin star restaurant with a casual vibe - no pretentious atmosphere.

    Besides the menu, they have dim sum style menu where they bring out small dishes to your table. Everything tasted great. Notable items were the state bird (quail) with provisions, garlic bread

    Grab whatever looks good as it comes around (trout croquettes, clams and quinoa, pork belly, etc) and be sure to order some pancakes and state bird from the commandables!

    Treat yo self and say yes to everything once, but say yes to the state bird dumplings twice. Make sure to save the tiniest bit of stomach space for one of the many life-changing desserts.

    Western dim sum. Make a reservation as walk-ins will wait a long time and might not get in. Check the address, as there is no sign. Food is delicious and hard to stop :P. Staff are really friendly.

    Underwhelming and overhyped. Had to think hard for a favorite dish. Liked the fregola summer salad, pork belly, and sweetbreads. Ice cream sandwich was good too.
