    Entrees & apps are all excellent, their recipes authentic with a gourmet flair. Meatball appetizer is a must. Short ribs, lamb stew and lamb burger are A++. Baklava not too sweet & very good.

    Great vibe, great cocktails, great food. The Manhattan is not on the menu but they make a really good one, so ask for it (with Bulleit Rye).

    Believe the reviews, the meatballs and French fried rock. The veggie pasta was average. The dessert I had (their only non-dairy option) was light and refreshing. The customer service is exceptional.

  • Brendan C.

    The food is good, but it's not a cheap place to eat. Casual, bar like atmosphere.

  • Corrie D.

    Staff is phenomenal. Friendly and knowledgeable. Get the crostini and steak kebab. Dessert = goat cheesecake FTW.

    Try the Lamb Sirloin and the Black Cod and the sliders. They do not disappoint.

    Get cozy at this food and cocktail hot spot, where the bartenders really know what they're talking about. Enjoy the buzzing cocktails at Fly Trap, including Bohemian favorite liquor, Becherovka.

    The meatballs with pistachio and pomegranate are absurdly delish.

    A lovely meal, well priced. I'd go back!

    Karen DOr · August 23, 2013
  • Mario S.

    Their menu changes often, but if you can get your hands on the saffron induced chicken breast with pickled almonds, just do it. Exotic.

    Mario Sundar · July 10, 2013
  • Hailey C.

    The pistachio meatballs are a must. I loved the salmon entree - such a good combination of spices and flavors!

    Hailey Crowel · June 9, 2013

    The kufteh tabrizi was on chef Matthew Accarrino's (SPQR) short list of dishes to try in SF. It was indeed great and vegetarian. Double points.

    Kourtney P · April 18, 2013
  • Mario S.

    The smoked trout is exquisite. I could make a meal out of it. Braised lamb too. They also make a great manhattan.

    Mario Sundar · March 13, 2013

    The duck was good the lamb was excellent! But skip the panna cotta - bland

    Yoav T · April 7, 2012
  • Daniel C.

    Get the bone marrow! Delicious cocktails too.

    Daniel C · March 6, 2012
  • Donna C.

    Be sure to make a reservation. A must try is the cardamom martini.

    Two lighter styled red wines worth trying (attractive prices too!): Librandi's '06 gaglioppo grape variety from Ciro DOC (Calabria) & Thevenin's '05 pinot noir from the Cote Chalonnaise (Burgundy).

  • Nixie P.

    Everything is mostly wonderful, however if you're a foodie, skip the baba ganoush. You'll find 10 times better stuff at your local ethnic hole in the wall. ;)

    Nixie Pixel · November 19, 2010
  • Tim O.

    Can't go wrong with the salmon!

    Tim Oborne · September 30, 2010

    The Minted Memory is memorable. Try the lamb burger.

    Mark Klapper · August 14, 2010
  • Anna L.

    The salmon melts in your mouth like buttterrrrrrr. The mai tai's are good and strong, and the Greek yogurt panna cotta was AMAZING!! Oh yeah, the lamb burger must have been good--it was sold out!

    Feels like you're in Amelie. Great decor, minted memory is a dream come true (for your mouth)

  • Lori B.

    The best french fries by far. They are perfect.

    Lori Bodenhamer · May 31, 2010
  • Jorge O.

    Try the "cardamom my dearest" cocktail: gin, lime, simple syrup, and a hint of cardamom. Delicious!
