Our waiter was delivering service as it wold have been a Michelin restaurant catering the most prominent guests in the state. She could get a job to any king or queen. The oysters and starters were perfect. The Kobe meat was in fact not the best quality meat I regret to say. Then the American meat was more perfect. The... More

In a busy/noisy lounge 5A5 deliver top notch service. I had the Bone In NY cut with Bacon n Egg. The bacon n egg is a great combo to the NY cut. It gives the extra flavor (that really shouldn't be needed...). The meat was great cooked but not world class quality. It didn't have that extra tender taste of... More

I went to 5A5 with my boyfriend spontaneously. We didn't make any reservations ahead and the dining area was packed. We got a table within the lounge area and honestly liked it much more than the stiff, though still amazing looking dining area. We had a pumpkin soup as an appetizer and filet mignon as the entrée. I've never ever... More

Great experience ! Food is excellent, from starters (lobster tempura, tuna tataki, ...) to beef (Japanese Wagyu and US prime) and side orders (one should definitely try the mushrooms). Special mention to the French General Manager: very kind and efficient, no wonder the restaurant is one of SF's bests !

Booked online with Opentable for 1000 points and the system worked well. Friendly staff all round. Menu mainly American or Japanese beef choices with the A5 meat the highest quality. Extensive wine menu. Had the Hamachi and tuna tataki for starters. The 5A filet at $35 an ounce was a good steak but depending on your tastes, contained more of... More

Entertained two customer groups at 5A5 Steak Lounge last night. We did appetizers and drinks in the lounge first. The service was fantastic. Never did one drink or even a water glass get less than half full before a refill was offered. The appetizers were incredible. Favorites include the Crab Cakes and Smoked Salmon with Boursin Cheese Croquettes. We then... More

WoW... We made a great choice! The place was jammed, so reservations are definitely recommended. We sat in the bar (full... More
