Nice Laid Back Dinner

We saw E&O Kitchen while walking back to our hotel, and decided to eat their the next night. We were still on eastern time, so we ate an early dinner at 5:30pm.

Our first night here and our hotel recommended this resturant. It was amazing, my fiancé and I sharded some appetizers but my favourite and I would highly recommend on the menu would be the prawn salad, so fresh and full of flavour. I could just eat it all them time. The service was lovely and not far from where we... More

The concierge at The St Francis recommended this eatery. Menu is well balanced with meat, chicken, fish and vegetarian options. We loved to see organic pork, wild fish and free range chicken offerings. I especially am delighted to see a woman at the helm. Although we are avid wine enthusiasts, we felt a nice lager went well with our choices.... More

Had a pleasant dinner even with some imperfections in some of the items ordered. This is a fun place with an open kitchen. Perhaps we ordered the wrong things.

I stumbled into E&O by accident during a recent San Francisco outing, and LOVED the Happy Hour...to the point where I want to take my wife back for dinner. The Happy Hour also begins at 3:00 p.m. -- very nice. Anyway, I hadn't had any lunch, so sat at the bar at about 3:15. A nice drinks list...but a KILLER... More

Accident or no accident, we are SO THRILLED to have you as a fan of our happy hour! Frankly, I'm a little bit jealous of your experience -- oysters and a cold drink are for sure the way to go. Hope to have you back soon to try more of the menu! Best, Sharon Nahm, Executive Chef More

We found this place completely by accident after a day of walking around the city, and it was probably the best meal of our trip (that is saying a lot, considering how good the food in San Francisco is). Walking in without reservations on a Friday night is not a good idea, but they did seat us right away at... More

I moved away from the Bay Area so I haven't been to San Francisco in a very long time. Business brought me to a hotel right up the street from E & O! I had the most amazing dinner last night. I sat at the bar and had a Thai shrimp salad. It was SO yummy. What a great dinner!

We had a recommendation from our wine tour guide that this was a good place to go. It was only two blocks from our Union Square hotel so decided to try it out. It was superb.

The beef with kimchi was delicious. Great appetizers. Very nice salmon. I was there for a business dinner, so the menu was predetermined, but everything was really good. The servers were nice and informative about the food.
