Went to Kuleto's for an early per concert dinner. Entered thru the main doors with signage clearly marked with the restaurant name. Dinner service didn't start until 5pm someone, in passing, told us. We were near the entrance in a room with one side dominated by a bar and bar aisle, a half rail dividing the room in two, then... More

My hubby and I are always looking for authentic-tasting Italian food. While vacationing in San Francisco, we read a review for Kuleto's. Fortunately, since we both have bad backs, it was right around the corner from our hotel, The Handerly (fantastic hotel!) The ambiance is comfortable, but the food is THE BEST Italian food we've had in ages! Freshly made... More

Short notice table reservation ( 1 hr prior to seating) gave our party of 13 two good tables situated close to each other, one for our 7 teenagers, one for the adults. Our waiter Tregg ( Talented Mr. Ripley- lookalike) was very prompt and attentive, and also a clever salesman, and that is all said in a positive meaning! We... More

We have been dining at Kuleto's for the past 25 years. Always stopping for lunch or dinner yearly on our annual trips to San Francisco. My favorite dish is the short ribs and my wife loves the Mary's chicken. Wine pairings by the glass are reasonable . Best dessert every-STICKY TOFFEE PUDDING. Ate at Kuleto's 3 times this trip.

I have dined here a number of times and in general my experience was good. However, a business dinner last Thursday night changed that view dramatically. We were a party of nine and seated promptly. Our server was quite harried as the dining room was already bursting at the seams at 6:30. Our table was set with small, white wine... More

Our hotel was close to this brasserie and on our 1st evening we popped in on the off chance of having food. The lady at the stand was very unhelpful saying they were full but then someone else found us a seat in the bar area. Our server, Tregg, was superb; he was bright, efficient and helpful. I had the...

I live here and love G Square. The views are so special here it sells out every 4 th of July. The cocktails are perfect and the salads, bread, fish and desserts are great! Best of all you can walk 10 feet and get a cocoa at our famous chocolate square. Great location great food!!

We decided to hit a movie one night and our concierge recommended Kuleto's. It was in the mall so we weren't expecting much. BUT I have to say, the pizzas were unique and superb. Our waitress was amazingly versed in the wine menu and practically guided us through tastings until we picked a glass! (and I work in a tasting... More
