    The steak tartare with garlic oil was amazing. The fresh burratta was excellent. It is worth the wait and make reservations.

    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.

    Creative and good food.. but not worth the hype for me! There's more way better in SF!

  • Omer Z.

    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.

    Omer Zach · January 9
  • Brian S.

    Love to make a meal by going both al carte and with dim sum.

    Brian Strauss · December 31, 2014
  • Calvin T.

    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.

    Calvin Ting · December 24, 2014
  • Susan H.

    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.

    Whether it's savory pancakes stacked with local cheese, delicious crudos, or a new take on tofu skin, the flavors are always eye-opening, making the spot one of the most exciting restaurants in town. Read more

    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.

  • Frances J.

    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.

    Frances James · December 1, 2014
  • Anthony P.

    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.

    Anthony Popeo · November 18, 2014
  • Brendan C.

    There's a reason for the wait. Don't pass up the quail eggs!

    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.

    Chanterelle toast. Omg.

    Everything was amazing. Can't go wrong with getting dishes as they come around versus ordering from the menu.

    The trout dish

    Kyle Riggs · August 8, 2014

    Best restaurant in SF. Try the marrow dish.

  • Jiashu W.

    Say yes to everything they offer. If you want to try walk-in, be there before 4:30 PM.

    Jiashu Wang · August 6, 2014
  • tablehopper

    Be sure to get any of the pancakes, and especially if you see one with sturgeon.

    tablehopper · August 3, 2014

    Of course you have to try the namesake, the state bird with provisions.

    Your server will present you with a list of cooked-to-order options from the kitchen, but I recommend sitting tight & seeing what comes to your table first (like the trout roe chip and dip). Read more

    The quail is deep-fried in a buttermilk batter and served on a tangle of lemon-stewed tomatoes soft enough to be spread on toast. It's a brilliant combination. Read more

    Whether you’ve waited 2 months since you made your reservation or 3 hours since you put your name down, one thing is certain, your experience at Nicole Krasinski and Stuart Brioza’s will be worth it.

    I really love the energy of this place. I had rabbit and tuna fish dumplings, fantastic curried rabbit, bone marrow with chanterelle mushrooms and more.

  • Elyse E.

    Get a group of 8 and explore the most eccentric tasting menu ranging from giant burrata filled garlic knots to yellow watermelon chili salad to pork belly and beyond. So much deliciousness!

    Elyse Estrada · July 26, 2014
  • Jon

    There are lots of walk-in spots, but I tried arriving at 4:45pm on a Monday and missed out on the 5:30 sitting. Suggest 4:30pm, or you may have to wait till 9pm or later to be seated.

    Jon · July 22, 2014
  • Katherine M.

    Absolutely delightful, creative American cuisine served a la carte on trays. So fun. Get in line 30+ min before it opens if you don't have a reservation. As Andrew says, "Get the pancakes."

    Katherine M. · July 16, 2014
  • Kylie

    Wise Andrew recommended all the pancakes, and we were not misled. The multigrain pancake with smoked duck and maple glaze was out of this world. If possible, sit at the counter, you won't regret it.
