Good but not great

Had been wanting to eat here for a long time but missed going when it first opened and then the chef who was great left. Reviews afterwards weren't so good so didn't go until a few weeks ago when new chef with good credentials came. While I liked going to a restaurant out near the ocean, I'm not... read more

If one has a car and is willing to explore the outer limits of San Francisco, this is a very good restaurant worth visiting. Avoid server recommendations and order what most appeals to you. The falafel plate remains something I would like to try, though the dutch pancake was delicious and the bloody mary too. Eggs in Jail is a... More

Outerlands is perhaps one of the most underrated restaurants located in one of most underrated neighborhoods in San Francisco, The Outer Sunset! I live about 10 blocks from this restaurant, and when it arrived a few years ago, I was more than a little excited to learn that a very good, friendly and well thought out dining option was finally...

This was my second time here. I had read previous reviews and learned that to avoid long waits you need to come before the restaurant opens so that is what I do. We were seated shortly after the restaurant opened and the waiter was very pleasant and relaxed. I ordered the biscuits and gravy and it was delicious, I would... More

We were visiting from London and our great Aunt recommended this place. At 93 she loves restaurant reviews. It's slightly hard to find as its out near the ocean but worth the effort. We visited at lunchtime. The menu is really simple - about 8 dishes. Sandwiches, salads and soup. We tried 3 of them and all were excellent. I... More

So simple. So good. The menu is minimalist, like the decor. And both tasteful. Very good grilled cheese. Excellent smoked trout salad. Dropped that on doorsteps of buttered toast. Getting routine to know where all ingredients derive.

Came here for brunch with 4 friends, whom I was staying with in the sunset district. Being that it was bay to breakers we figured it would be packed. We waited about 40 minutes to be seated, which didn't seem too bad considering the reviews I have read. We were seated inside where the decor is lovely and inviting. We... More

If you are planning to enjoy a weekend day in Golden Gate Park, first go to Outerlands and order some of their gorgeous sandwiches. We had chicken one and open egg-bacon sandwich as well as the grilled Cheese sandwich... Perfect. However house coffee was quite bad. We ordered brownie, it was warm and tasty. Music is a bit too loud... More

As usual this restaurant is packed even on a Monday at 2PM it is a 40 minute wait. The food is well prepared and always served warm, I like this you can count on a good warm meal. For me while I enjoy the Outerlands it isn't a great restaurant. Why?? Because the menu is so limited in it's offering... More
