We came with friends and arrived early for lunch before it got fairly full even on a weekday. The food was good. A glass of wine was a good value too. Service was excellent and very polite. Desserts were great!

This restaurant has improved over the years. We ate their the night before we left on a 2 week vacation, while staying by the airport. The menu was creative and we love sweetbreads and they were exceptional. Reasonable prices and great good....we will go there again!

If you haven't tried Basque food before, don't miss the opportunity to sample the dishes at this very pleasant restaurant. Meals are not served "family style" as I recalled being typical of Basque restaurants, but the flavors took me back to my youth, when my family made a point of enjoying this great cuisine at every opportunity.

I have never had a bad meal here. Also have attended functions there and their food was also good. I would recommend this place for all occasions. Just be careful the back room is small so if you are having more thank 25-30 people it gets very hot and the windows don't open

I've been there for many occasions, including lunches and dinners in the restaurant as well as luncheon meetings in the meeting rooms. This visit was in one of the meeting rooms for a... More

We were visiting San Francisco to meet our donors for our NGO The Rose International Fund for Children ( www.trifc.org) and catching up with extended family. My uncle's heritage hails from the Basque region in Spain and so we find ourselves here having a wonderful dinner! The place was packed and you had to make reservations for Sunday dinner. Ours...
