Always wanted to try this place and wasn't disappointed, great food and wine and the service was spot on. I like the way the waiter talked me out of the meal I asked about because he said I would never finish it and recommended a dish that was just what I felt like and almost $10 cheaper.

John's grill is an excellent choice for those looking for a steakhouse! The steaks were excellent; people in our group ordered a variety of cuts and everyone said theirs was great. John's Grill is great for large groups, too. They have a third floor that is specifically for groups of 7 or more and they really know how to manage... More

We love coming here for a drink at the bar to relax and people-watch before shows or events in the city. The old world, classic vibe, the original Maltese Falcon statue & memorabilia, and the colorful photo library of local & national celebrities make this place well worth the visit. However, we've been disappointed in recent dinners here where we've... More

My wife and I both love steak, but this was a surprise from her to me. She is great at finding us wonderful places to dine and this did not disappoint as far as food. The only negative is this is not a romantic place to dine as it is somewhat loud and crowded because they pack so many people... More

Classic San Francisco and immaculate service! One of the best steaks in the city. I had the fillet mignon, medium rare, done to perfection. It was awesome!

Lobster ravioli was frozen, bland and mushy. Club sandwich was good- hopefully you cannot mess up a club! Overpriced for the quality. We stopped here because it was the first place we saw.
