Good food and fast. Service was great and the environment was good. We went just before a Giants match and had a short walk down to the stadium. If you are going to the stadium this is close and you dont need to walk far.

Really enjoyed my eggs Benedict of which there were several creative varieties. Yummy jalapeño Bloody Mary with bacon garnish. It's a bar atmosphere but fast friendly service. Nice beer selection. Reasonably priced! Walking distance to the baseball park.

If you're in SOMA, this is a great stop. The bar is laid back, the drinks are always strong and the atmosphere is really nice.

I would second another's review -- service is great but too noisy for dinner. I had a fantastic peach mojito and my friend loved her lemon drop...and the appetizer pizza with arugula ricotta mozzarella and mushroom was outrageous! Great for a date or after a ball game

This place is totally under rated. We were a little concerned bc of the TA rating when it was recomended to us but so pleasantly suprised at the quality of food and the atmosphere.

When this was Infusion, I loved this place. I know some of the same people are there, but it has lost some of its luster. The infused vodka is still good.

Surprisingly good for a bar-like place - simple, good and affordable.
