Nice place for lunch with an interesting take on Asian cuisine

Had lunch here mid-week and had no trouble getting in with reservations done a week ahead of time. There is a very open floor plan and we were sat on the first floor where tables are somewhat close together. Great bar area too. Service was attentive and not rushed.

We picked this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews. The food was good, but nothing spectacular. The atmosphere was very nice. We didn't find it overly noisy as some other reviewers have said. Although not expensive, it was too expensive for the quality of the food and for such small portions. Would not go back.

We were here for lunch. Glad to see they had Gluten-free options, but were underwhelmed with our meal. However, our waiter was fantastic!

Glad to hear you were excited about our gluten-free options, though I wish the taste had impressed just as much. I'm confident we can make you a flavorful dish you'll love, so I hope you'll give us a chance to do just that next time you're in San Francisco. All the best, Sharon Nahm, Executive Chef More

Reservation is a must. This restaurant is our #1 priority for dinner when we go visit San Fran. The food is consistently delicious and excellent. Chicken satay with their peanut sauce is a good start for appetizer with their selection of wines, I prefer red (merlot or cab). Then for main entree, Indonesian Fried Rice, Shaking Beef and Wood Roasted... More

Food is creative and top-quality. Service has always been friendly and professional. The name change is an improvement but the experience remains better than the name implies.

Business trip to SF and have found it very difficult getting good gluten free food. E&O not only had a comprehensive menu but the flavours of the food didn't disappoint. There was a lot of food envy at the table and in a party of six everyone left really happy. We are still discussing the food a day later. The... More

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

Sorry to hear you didn't get to enjoy our food! It's true our restaurant can get a bit loud when busy, but most of our guests enjoy the energy and ambiance. It's strange you weren't able to hear each other at all, though -- we've never had that complaint before. I'll look into this more in the future. Best, Sharon... More

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.
