We had the shittake dumplings and a number of other main dishes including the drunken noodles, the Manilla ribs, pad thai and fried rice. The food was somewhat expensive for what you get. Flavours are not bad, but there was over use of butter and salt/soy in all dishes. The atmosphere was generic and nothing to write home about as... More

This is the second time we have been to San Francisco and the second time eating here. I loved it before and love it again. The atmosphere is wonderful.

This restaurant has been by far our best one in San Francisco. The corn fritters are a must and the salt and pepper calamari was one of the best calamari dishes I ever had. We will be returning for lunch tomorrow.

It's great to hear we're one of your favorites in San Francisco, Tom! Calamari is a must for summertime on the coast, so we're happy you enjoyed our take on it. We hope your lunch was just as delicious! Best, Marcelle, Assistant General Manager More

Very pretty decor. Fried corn fritters were very good! Cod and greens was amazing! Pad Thai was very good as was chicken satay. Reasonably priced wine list. Great experience.

I visited San Francisco for work and walking to the hotel I found this restaurant, the decoration was called my attention first and I decided to give it a try since it is very close to the hotel. The service was great and the food delicious. Prices are very reasonable, the service at the bar is great.

I asked the concierge at my hotel for a good Chinese restaurant in the immediate area and she immediately suggested E&O a block away. I could see why - it's close, it's stylish. But it's not Chinese - it's Asian fusion - meaning American with an Asian theme. The real problem is that the food is not that good -... More

Since the concierge pointed you in our direction, I'm sorry to hear your meal with us fell short of expectations, Steve. It sounds as though you were in the mood for traditional Chinese fare, which we unfortunately do not offer. That said, we would still hope that our bold and unique Asian fusion would make a tasty impression. I'm not... More

It's gigantic once you step inside. I go here after work and get drinks at the bar. This place is huge and the "wait for your table area" is cozy and by the window I've had drinks there too.

Our Corn Fritters are a tried and true favorite -- we couldn't think of a better dish to treat yourself to after a long day of work! We are currently working on bringing back some of our old school cocktails so the Lychee-tini might make a comeback. Check our Facebook to get info on new cocktail menu additions Cheers, Marcelle,...

The location is wonderful if you're in the Union Square area for shopping. The menu is creative and unique. What's wonderful is that you can find options for gluten-free or vegetarian diners as well as for the rest of your group. It's really fun to share a variety of the dishes among a group. Prices are quite low so it's... More
