I was so very disappointed. The remodel is great, as is the service and the food presentation. I thought we had found a new place that we would go to regularly. The problem is the food is very bland. When you only serve three entrees, they should be excellent. The plates are very attractive and have vegetables that are prepared... More

We were seated immediately. But waited two hours for our entre. The bread -$8 for 3 small pieces. The tempura was raw dough inside. Sent back and later edible. The halibut when it finally came was mediocre. The beans could've been from a I can. They were so embarrassed that they gave us free dessert. Still the bill came to... More

This place is DELICIOUS! They have this "porridge" cookie that I'll never forget. (And I'm really a cookie expert 😀). Service was nice, the orange juice freshly squeezed, the bread home-made, the salad next to the turkey sandwich had a great dressing, etc etc.! We arrived at 10.45 on a Saturday morning, had 13 couples in line before us (they... More

Had the dutch pancake which was incredible and tried their house made donuts with cherry. It was delicious! Beautiful designed inside as well. Family friendly and delicious - can't really beat that when you are on a family vacation. NOTE: if you get there before they open get your name on the paper list that is sitting outside. There was...

We've been looking forward to the re-opening and stopped by on Friday at about 4:30 for cocktails and small bites. We were hoping to beat the happy hour rush - surprisingly it was not very crowded although the brunch was said to be packed. The construction and decor is natural and beautiful. The cocktails were delicious, each hand-crafted and filled... More

Outerlands does an incredible brunch. We arrived on a Sunday ~1 pm, and the host was able to seat us right away, which we greatly appreciated! The cafe is cozy and beautifully decorated with driftwood walls. Not much seating inside, but if you sit outside you can check out the neighborhood (close to Ocean Beach, fun, funky, and full of...

Bread was amazing, coffee superb, and service was warm and friendly. What more is there to say? The interior is beautiful, clearly painstakingly designed and assembled. Never seen anything like those walls. Gorgeous windows too. Definitely pop in here if you get the chance!

This is, hands down, my favourite restaurant in San Francisco. There are often complaints about the wait, but it is SO worth it. Also, the wait can be avoided by choosing to go on a weekday. Most people seem to show up for Sunday brunch and expect to be seated immediately. Even so- Ocean Beach is a quick stroll away.... More
