We had the ideal setting for a fantastic lunch with friends in the garden patio!! Inside seating has a warm and charming décor.. the patio is a must on a beautiful day. Loved the ambiance of the well maintained garden in the patio. Lots of shade and seating. The well attentive staff made sure you have everything you needed. Antipasto... More

We've been to the Flute many times, always for brunch. For a casual varied menu it beats all the Union St area brunch places we tried so we keep returning. Prompt service and very consistent brunch traditional choices always with an added twist or selection that differentiates it from other restaurants. Reasonable prices, attractive décor with the added plus of... More

Our San Francisco daughter picked this little hide away..and she knew what she was doing! We ate in the garden, what great atmosphere. What great, flavorful, fresh food.. Excellent service.. Pizza, mushroom soup, clam chowder, shrimp louie, it was all excellent. Perfect for a Saturday brunch. Next, we'll book dinner inside and move to their dinner menu Multi generational, child... More

Had an excellent dinner at the Magic Flute last weekend. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the patio seating. First off, the patio is in the back of the building, with heaters, so it is protected from both the wind and the chill. The food was outstanding. They served bread --- outstanding; so I ordered the garlic bread --- very yummy.... More

After reading the glowing reviews last year, we (husband and I) "did" brunch at the Magic Flute in late Fall. On the patio, cozily tucked in at the rear of the garden with plants and a heater, we feasted on wonderfully creative food (bacon sprinkled waffles with warm apple compote, and an awesome chorizo scramble) and beverages, and were made...

This place was just lovely! It looked small from the outside but it was quite spacious, with a wonderful garden area at the back. We had the steak, which was done to perfection. The atmosphere was so relaxing and I cannot compliment the staff enough. They were just fantastic. I'm not a big dessert person and asked if they had... More

This is another place that has been around for years and I went for brunch on a Sunday after not having been there in years. The menu has been updated as well as the physical space. I had the eggs benedict and it was as expected. No big surprise when it came to the food. The back room is a... More

I went to this establishment on 3/15/13. I had a Bloomspot Certificate and called to make the reservation, stated on the Bloomspot Certificate for 5:30 pm. The "gentleman" who took my call said something similar to this: "Madame, you realize that the value of the certificate is $50.00." I told him that I did and that I would spend the... More

My wife and I were walking along Sacramento enroute to the De Young Museum and just happened to drop in on the Magic Flute for lunch. We are so glad that we did! It is a beautiful and intimate restaurant (though not so tiny - we were shown the large open patio in the back when we left - looks... More
