I liked it just fine for what it was. No complaints. Not fancy, just above average food and across the street from Le Meridian where I stayed. The service was good.

I was one of the very first customers on the first day that this establishment opened its doors to the public. The food was good and the service was equally as good, but nothing brag about. I used to frequent this restaurant 3-4 times per month but stopped going there in mid-2013 because the food wasn't as good as it... More

Super fast...polite..low delivery fee. Great Wedge Salad....Good soup. Lack of staff in the morning left us looking for wait staff. Breakfast food was great despite the wait.

I was staying in the hotel by this place and it was always busy and full of people. The food was really good and the drinks were too. The service was good and it is really close to many areas in San Francisco like Chinatown and Little Italy.

I was accompanied on my trip by a colleague who has no tolerance for 'mixed foods', only eats beef well done, hates any vegetables and only eats potato, no pasta or rice. We and several others had lunch in the Elephant & Castle on 3 occasions. Its a great pub with the usual high standard of the US equivalent of... More

Just besides the Clubquarters hotel, a nice simple restaurant. You can go there for a drink or to eat something. Everybody is very nice.

This is an Irish Pub style restaurant attached to the Club Quarters Hotel, but also open to the street. Staying in the attached hotel, I did find myself here a few nights for dinner and/or drinks. The food was alright, the burger was clearly not handmade (preformed patties), but cooked well and overall was average. The fries one were overcooked,... More
