This review is not about the food at Don Pisto's restaurant, but rather about the harassment and destruction of our property that we were subjected to by the owner of Don Pisto's restaurant on 510 Union Street, SF, because we are females. He is a Middle Eastern man in his 30's, on the heavy side, fair-skinned, with a round fat face and fat cheeks, and he hardly has a neck line. He usually stands around close to the entrance area. This incident would not have happened if we were men. So, to the women who go to this restaurant, make sure you are accompanied by males, because the owner of Don Pisto's will possibly harass you and you might have a similar experience as we did.As we are seated and glass of water is brought to us Don Pisto's owner walked up to us and shoves 7 plastic straws in my female friend's glass of water, the water splashes in her face, and then he told us "Don't be bad girls", and he walked back to the bar area and kept staring at us and giggled. The area that he was standing was right across from us in a very close proximity. Then, we saw him hold his iphone toward our table as he began to take pictures of us. We were told by the manager there that he is the owner of Don Pistos. When we ask for our photos to be deleted, he yells in front of everyone to us "Get the F out of here". We obviously didn't want to stay at such a disgusting, female harassing establishment with such a psychotic owner that tells his patrons to get the F out for no reason whatsoever, so we immediately walked out of the restaurant distraught.Five minutes after we left, we realized that we had left behind our expensive umbrella on our chair at Don Pisto's restaurant. So, we went back to Don Pisto's to get our umbrella, only to find that the crazy owner had literally broken our expensive solid wood umbrella in half and thrown in on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant. We have all the photos of the incidence.The despicable acts of the owner of Don Pisto's went beyond what anyone could imagine. He harassed us two young female patrons, and destroyed our property. This experience at Don Pisto's at the hands of its very owner is unbelievable and appalling.
No woman deserves to be treated this way as a sex object when you go to a restaurant, and no woman's photos at a restaurant should be taken by the owner of the restaurant without permission, and no customer's property should be destroyed when a woman objects to being harassed and treated as a sex object.
