An adventurous, inventive, delicious, thoughtful contemporary American restaurant [CA native] utilizing a Dim Sum serving style.
It's different all the time. It's all good. Experiment!
Get the duck liver mouse with almond biscuit.
The toast is actually quite good, but the important thing is to save room for dessert.
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.
You MUST try the toast. Sounds boring but isn't.
Trendy! Good drinks, nice wine, awesome food, pig-eat-fries,
Don't say no to anything! It is all incredible. Figure $75 per person with a couple drinks
Everything! Menu changes
Got a taskrabbit to wait 1.5 hours before opening. Get the State Bird (fried quail). Dimsum style. Good service.
Love the dim sum serving style! Most of the food is French/American though, not Asian.
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.
The fried quail, aka CA state bird with provisions, and anchovy-tomato toast were our favorites of the night, highly recommended.
Amazing food! Delicious but the portion size is small for the price they charge. Best is a group of 4 to try everything on their menu.
Stuart Brioza running an interesting concept & still not losing sight of the food and service. Very hands on and great to see. Chat to the staff and choose wisely as there is so much choice
What a great little Michelin gem. It's very difficult to get reservations but worth it.
Get the ice cream sandwich and world peace for dessert. And get some of the pancakes from the menu.
😍😍 if you are still up at midnight just make a reservation for 60 days later. You won't regret it. Don't get too many things from the menu because everything they bring out in trays is amazing.
Everything was delicious, both from the menu and the trays & carts passing by - but the dessert milk was the absolute best part!
If they sent this food to the Middle East, there would be no more war in the Middle East.
Everything on the menu is dank af.
Go. Go now. Sit at the bar. Talk to the chefs. Eat it all. Leave happy. Repeat.
The garlic bread burrata will change your life.
The steak tartare with garlic oil was amazing. The fresh burratta was excellent. It is worth the wait and make reservations.
Phenomenal in every way
Not worth the wait or the price. Half the dishes were great but other half were mediocre. They did have an excellent sparkling rose which was poured at the table out of a magnum bottle.
Dim sum style concept with food from all around the world. Almost impossible to get a reservation, but you can wait in line for walk-ins. They do seatings at 5:30, 7:30, 8:45
The duck fried rice, mushroom toast, and garlic bread with burrata were my favorites.
The charred broccoli and the burrata have crazy flavor!
Get: Duck liver mousse. Farro. Mushroom toast. Ice cream sandwich.
The guinea hen dumplings were fantastic. We couldn't resist ordering two rounds!
Creative and good food.. but not worth the hype for me! There's more way better in SF!
Amazing and absurdly creative dim sum-style dishes. Not cheap but not too expensive either ($50–80/person for food). Don't worry about reservations: come by at 5 or 5:15 on a weeknight and you're set.
Love to make a meal by going both al carte and with dim sum.
Start with the chanterelle toast ($3) and end with the shot of peanut milk ($2). Unique, tasty, and practically free relative to the rest of your bill.
Always get the burrata... and when it's available, the maitake & duck ‘fried rice’ a la plancha. Actually, say yes to just about anything. You won't regret it.
Everything was fantastic and well-prepared. The atmosphere is nice, casual and friendly. I love the idea with the trolley where one can choose from. Make sure you get the Red Trout.
Excellent. Some of the best food in the city. American cuisine done Dim Sum style. Walk up at 5pm with only 2 of you and you might get a seat at the bar.
Tables are bookable 60 days ahead of time (that's the best time to make a reservation). The food is phenomenal; only downside is the amount of time you'll spend figuring out what you want to eat.
There's a reason for the wait. Don't pass up the quail eggs!
Go with friends so you can try lots of different dishes - they are all amazing!!
Everything. This is the best restaurant in San Francisco. Also try THE "state bird"
got in line at 4:30 on a Sunday for a party of three and had my choice of either the 5:30 or 7:30 seating.
Eat here as much as your pant size will allow. Hen and mushroom dumplings are ace.
Truly one of the best damn meals you'll have in SF. Sample everything.
expect a wait, even with reservations. and then expect insanely territorial fellow diners.
