    Get the duck liver mouse with almond biscuit.

  • Laurence B.

    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.

    Got a taskrabbit to wait 1.5 hours before opening. Get the State Bird (fried quail). Dimsum style. Good service.

  • Ben C.

    Love the dim sum serving style! Most of the food is French/American though, not Asian.

    Ben Chen · August 3
  • Sherry L.

    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.

    Sherry Li · July 25
  • Doug d.

    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.

    Nancy Tran · July 7
  • Vivian W.

    Get the ice cream sandwich and world peace for dessert. And get some of the pancakes from the menu.

    Vivian Wang · July 5

    😍😍 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.

    Vivian Wang · July 5
  • Katie C.

    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.

    The garlic bread burrata will change your life.

  • Laurent D.

    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.

    Ting Tsai · March 27
  • Amy Y.

    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

    Amy Y · February 28
  • Allison Y.

    The duck fried rice, mushroom toast, and garlic bread with burrata were my favorites.

    Allison Yu · February 25

    The charred broccoli and the burrata have crazy flavor!

    A signature SF restaurant serving inventive contemporary American food with lines starting at 4pm. Pork Belly Citrus Salad ($7) is a must Read more

    The CA state bird w/ provisions is the best quail in SF, making our list of "The Tastes That Make the City: SF Edition." Read more

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

    Carsten Roehr · January 20
  • 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!

    Brendan Curran · November 10, 2014

    Go with friends so you can try lots of different dishes - they are all amazing!!

    Stephanie L · October 18, 2014

    Everything. This is the best restaurant in San Francisco. Also try THE "state bird"

    Alex Plutzer · September 21, 2014
  • Serena

    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.

    Serena · September 15, 2014
  • Kyle M.

    Eat here as much as your pant size will allow. Hen and mushroom dumplings are ace.

    Kyle Meyer · September 11, 2014
  • Sarah L.

    Truly one of the best damn meals you'll have in SF. Sample everything.

    Sarah Lane · September 5, 2014
  • joanne

    expect a wait, even with reservations. and then expect insanely territorial fellow diners.
