Our family of four ate dinner at this restaurant on February 15, 2015. We did not have a reservation and were lucky to get a table. When I eat here again, I will make a reservation. We shared a Malbec wine from Argentina which was good. The four of us shared a Garibaldi salad which was excellent and sufficient for... More

We found this gem off Sacramento Street and decided to try it. Beautifully appointed. WOW, from our welcome by Jeff at the door to his fabulous suggestions for dinner we had a wonderful experience.The small plates, meant to be shared, are exceptional- the fried brussles sprouts topped with toasted slivered almonds were delicious. Lamb tenderloins a HIT and the Chicken... More

Delicious food and attentive service in a local restaurant - noisy at first but when we asked for a quieter spot they quickly seated us in a corner that was perfect. The fois gras and grilled calamari were the BEST ever. The wine choices were excellent. A perfect choice if you are in the neighbourhood.

We were able to get a group of 6 in on short notice. Service was great. Do go for the appetizers. Ceviche and goat cheese were particularly good options. Dinner was chicken melanese. Quite good. Short ribs reported great as well. Worth a visit.

My wife and I had dinner at Garibaldi's on a weekday evening. The olive oil brought out to go with the bread was warm, had chopped olives, capers and crushed garlic in it, as well as some green and black whole olives; the waiter said that the combination was reduced once or twice before being served; it was outstanding with...

A group of us came to celebrate a special occasion. A table had been set up for us in the main area. We asked, though, if we could be placed in the quieter room in the back. The maitre d' was very obliging and switched us. He thoughtfully helped one of us up the three stairs. With the bread comes... More

This is one of my go-to places to meet friends for drinks or dinner we need to be near Pac Heeights/Laurel Village/Presidio Heights. Great service every time, good happy hour but it gets crowded fast and there's not much seating, food and wine selection are consistently good. This place has been here for years (and for good reason!), and is... More

This was our first time eating at Garibaldi's and it is a new favorite. We two were with a private party of 32 in the back room. Our menus was pre-selected with three choices for each course. My husband had the spicy lamb on a bed of aromatic couscous, and roasted broccoli; everything about it was perfect for him; I... More
