I had a group of 9 for a birthday dinner. We got drinks pretty quickly, but then it took a while to place our orders and it was a very long wait before the food came out. The ribs were delicious, as was the steak, mac and cheese and cauliflower. The salmon was quite undercooked (for 2 people). The fries... More

Very nice appetizers and drinks at happy hour. Relaxed atmosphere, good food and pleasant staff. Not too far from Giant Stadium.

One of the only places open late in San Francisco, wasn't expecting much, boy was I surprised...chic urban decor, and really good food. Some of the best bolognese I ve ever had, pretty good prices, and friendly engaging staff. My husband had the burger, and the other guy had ribs, all were great. Would definitely recommend.

This was one of the best meals I've ever had. It was pricey, don't get me wrong, but amazing food. Fun cocktails. Great service. Someone had a three year old (or so) in the bar area, which was weird, but everyone seemed equally bugged out, so I didn't feel it reflected on the place. We were in town for a... More

Dined here while staying on business in downtown SF. Although a bit small, the service and the food were very good. I was in the mood for a burger and they had a very well done option with parmesan fries. Presentation was great (yes for a burger) as were the fries - they were very tasty. The service was really...

Ate here on a Groupon discount which was just as well as it is pretty pricey. Food was good - I had the chicken lollipop thing which was really tasty and my companion had the ribs which looked delicious but came with only a tiny portion of slaw. For the prices I would expect not to have to order sides.... More

We went to Oola for their brunch. When we arrived we were not greeted by a hostess so we were standing there for a few minutes until we decided to just seat ourselves. Once seated, one of the waiters told us that the table were sitting at was reserved for bigger parties so they asked us to move. A little... More

I went to this place with my daughter for brunch. The food was, besides being barely edible, over prices, delivered cold and did i say outrageously priced. This is not the place to go for food, service or price.

It's always busy at New year, but we were able to get a table for 4 at Oola. They didn't insit on their extensive set menu, which was a little lavish for our tastes so the usual a la Carte was better for us, a mix up over the prosecco and the bill led to them very graciously waiving the... More

I absolutely love the comfort and warmth of this restaurant. The menu is varied and interesting and the full bar has creative options too. There are a lot of meat dishes so it is not the greatest for a veggie...It can be loud if there is a big crowd but many evenings it is very peaceful. Our studio is nearby... More
