A small gem on Chestnut Street. A wide selection of Greek food for very reasonable prices. Very attentive service. Suppose you'd have to the ambiance is minimal.

Visiting San Francisco with friends who had previously lived locally, we were so fortunate to be introduced to this wonderful restaurant; which set ta very high bar by which other SF restaurants would be judged... We ate from a mouth-watering variety of mezes and appetisers on the menu, and from the yummy suggestions made by the very attentive and professional... More

We both love Greek Food so when we found this restaurant on our first night in San Francisco we went in full of eager anticipation. Sadly the food did not live up to our expectations. We thought that whoever cooked the food took NO care whatsoever in the presented dishes. Having worked over 25 years in the Restaurant industry we... More

Dined here mid week, party of 3 Excellent meal all around. Our daughter lives close by, dines here often, knows the menu well, and made all our selections. We are vegetarians, and the menu had a multitude of choices, all outstanding. Service was personable and spot on, including wine recommendation from our server. Portions were ample and delicious., Highly recommended.

Had a memorable meal here with colleagues while at a conference - absolutely outstanding food and service. The spanakopita was some of the best I've ever had, the seafood dishes fantastic, the various kebabs well cooked and tasty, and the service top shelf. And the wine selection was diverse. It's tucked away along a restaurant-heavy stretch in the Marina District,... More

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal here while visiting San Francisco. I was able to eat healthy with the Horiatiki salata, a tomato, pepper, and cucumber salad which can be served with or without feta cheese. I also had the Kota souvlaki - skewers of grilled chicken drizzled with lemon and olive oil. My husband loved the Gyro... More

We ate here on our first night in San Francisco. We were very tired after our flight from the UK. It was the first restaurant open that we came to. We were not sorry, it has a nice atmosphere, the food not only looks good but tastes excellent. Nice wine list. Lovely service. Bit on the expensive side.

Hi, We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your trip to Mezes. Unfortunately, sometimes our kitchen gets backed up due to its small size and it can take a while for food to come. We know that it is irritating when this happens. We would like to offer you a wonderful bottle of Greek wine on your next... More
