My wife and I made a reservation at E&O Asian Kitchen to have dinner with a friend. However, when we arrived, we found the restaurant to be so noisy that we couldn't hear each other, even when we were sitting next to each other. There was an empty table in a corner that looked like it might be quieter, but... More

My girlfriend and I and our kids were visiting SF over the New Year holiday and staying at the Triton Hotel. All of us are vegetarian and our first night in town we looked on Trip Advisor for a veg-friendly restaurant recommendation and E&O Asian Kitchen came up with excellent reviews and it was within walking distance from our hotel...

I'm really sorry to hear about that mishap on the first night you tried to eat here. While there's no excuse for not having contacted you back that evening, I do apologize that a busy evening caused our service to go down a few notches. As for the lunch you shared with us, the dumpling plates are appetizers and not... More

Everything was delicious! I couldn't decide which dish was the best, but it is hard to decide which delicious dish to choose from!

An array of small plates and entrees, all well suited to family style dining. Take friends and enjoy! A vegan legend on the menu would be welcome, but our wonderful server was very helpful and knowledgeable. Mushroom satay and vegan pad Thai were quite yummy.

Great restaurant for our last night in San Francisco. Super atmosphere in this relaxed yet buzzing restaurant with mouth watering menu choices and superb service. Highlights include the tuna tartar, hot and spicy flat iron steak and the warm ginger biscuits. Go find your own favourites.

We have been to E&O twice since Thanksgiving and enjoyed our meals both times. I was hoping to get there for their daily happy hour that ends at 6pm, but didn't make it (the menu options look really good, great prices too). We shared a lot of tasty dishes, the only disappointment was the Ahi Tuna Tartare that seemed a... More

Thank you for letting us know the Tuna Tartare was underwhelming in comparison to the other dishes. We're always looking for places to improve, so this is great feedback. I am so pleased, however, that everything else made up for what that dish was lacking. We're so happy to be part of your SF spots! Best, Sharon Nahm, Executive Chef More

We arrived in San Fran only hours before finding E & O. So happy we found a spot to sit and enjoy the fantastic hand crafted cocktails, and tasty noodle dishes!

It is centrally located, near Union Square, a litt;e bit dark, but the noise level is ok. I tried butternut squash dumplings- delicious, also some salmon, very good, also beek and mushroom skewers, and as desert devil`s food cake, very, very good.

I have been to E+O a number of times over the past few years. I always loved the vibe and the food - it was once "The" place to go in the city. Unfortunately the food, ambiance, decor and crowd have all diminished. It has gotten so 'average' that I do not think I will be returning.

Heather, it's so disappointing to hear you think we've gone down in quality. I can assure you that we're always working to improve, and feedback like yours gives us the motivation to do so. I hope you'll come see us again in the future -- I know we can do better by you. Best, Sharon Nahm, Executive Chef More
