This restaurant is in a great location and most of the food I have eaten there has been excellent. The salads have always been very good. However, at my last visit, I ordered the fried calamari. I would not advise this as one of their top dishes. The breading was wrong, they were overcooked and generally not appetizing. Otherwise, it... More

We stayed at the Kimpton down the block for four nights, so we ended up at Annabelle's three times during our stay. Good tavern fare, friendly service. The Manhattans were awful, thought. Stick to beer. Lunch was great. Worth it if you need a spot in the neighborhood.

It's just really good. Caramelized top with some fruit and maybe honey? Just delicious. The martini was just ok, not sure why. But the dessert was out of this world.

Went here with friends on a rainy night. The place was packed and the bar was crowded. The service was friendly and unassuming. The menu is pretty standard tavern fare, steaks and salads and some pastas. Nothing really unique or special. The food was nicely presented and tasty, but nothing special.

I only had a cocktail here, but it's a nice room and seemed to be buzzing the whole time I was visiting.

I stayed at the hotel next door which gave me a 20% off first dish during lunch on Sat/Sun only. The restaurant was not "full," but my friend and I had to "wait" for 45 minutes if we wanted a table. Apparently there was a big conference going on and you had to call for reservations. No worries. We ended... More

Annabelle's is strategically located within eyeshot of the big movie theater on Mission. The folks here are extremely friendly, serving up strong drink and good food with alacrity and good cheer. Salad nicoise was ample for dinner; I didn't even need the starter salad. Annabelle's is not value-priced, and dinner for two ran to $160 with tip. Still, it's a... More

This place was across the street from our hotel, and the reviews on TripAdvisor didn't seem too bad. The dining area was closed to prepare for dinner so we had to sit at the bar area which served the same food as they said. Our waiter was very nice and friendly. The menu isn't very extensive, but it had a... More

There was nothing special about Annabelle's. Had steak which was just okay. Someone in our party ordered steak med well and they said they only served med and med rare. My green beans tasted fine but were cold. Didn't like the hotel atmosphere. It was dark and felt small. Wouldn't eat here if visiting again.
