    Menu is not vegetarian friendly on the surface, but ask for a prix fixe vegetarian menu and they'll put together an amazing paired meal for you!

    Greatest craft beer selection there ever was. Start with the Prosciutto & Peaches and follow it up with the Duck Breast #👌

    This beer-centric restaurant has a mesmerizing display of glasses of every shape and size and an equally expansive menu. Pair a black lager with your grilled bison loin.

    Sticky toffee pudding is a must. It's like a bread pudding, but coated with melted toffee & I could eat a 4x4 ft. pan of it.

    Even though it's a dessert, sticky toffee pudding is the best!

    Lovely space, great beer list, BUT BLAH FOOD. Nothing seasoned properly or cooked well (some things were overdone, others weren't cooked enough). They skimped on veg. Gist: just come for a drink.

    They have burnt toast beer!

    No place gives more respect to beer than this new dramatically architectural restaurant in the Mission. Try the four-course tasting menu matched with beer that includes buttermilk-fried sweetbreads! Read more

    Sit at the bar and get some snacks to tide you over while you get lost in the binder full of beer options.

    Great beer menu. Menu changes regularly but scallop or prawn appetizers are always winners. Secret burger just at the bar.

    A very subtle entrance to keep a keen eye. Lovely inside with a great range of beers. Sophisticated.

    Great Beer selection! Wonderful bread and a suprisingly satisfying main course considering the portion size was small. Really great staff and nice atmosphere.

    Guys will go here for the extensive beer list. If you want wine with dinner instead, the Scherrer cab sav is incredible. Menu changes daily but if they have it, get scallop & crispy porchetta app

    So so. Had chefs 3 course tasting menu with pairings. Beer was good. Salad had too much cheese and bacon. Swordfish cooked well but greens and squash so so. Coffee cake dessert & beer was highlight
