    My favorite restaurant in San Francisco! I prefer going with a bigger group to try more things but it is tough to get a table.
  • Bikash M.
    Some great dishes, some ok ones. It didn't live up to the hype but does have some tasty food.
  • Wilson F.
    There is a lovely pleasure in eating modern American food dim sum style: say yes to anything coming off those carts, and have EVERY quail (the CA state bird) dish.

    A+ overall. I loved the pork belly & ice cream sandwich. Girlfriend loved the state bird & smoked avocado. Both of us were big fans of the cheese/squash toast, sauerkraut pancakes & peanut milk shot.

    With a selection of items like black mission fig granita drizzled in noyaux cream and dappled with fennel, you'll do well to not get too full during dinner. Read more

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
