“Friendly, Wonderful Service, Low Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

As we walked from the Ferry building to A t & T park looking for a place where my husband could have a burger and I could indulge in seafood, we happened upon Delancey Street. What a wonderful find! From the second the charming hostess greeted us and happily fulfilled my request fro a booth, we were treated like royalty. The view of the bay is relaxing and a white table cloth and fresh flowers always make a meal a little more special. My husband selected a burger with avocado and bacon and I opted for the carb cakes with mango salsa and black bean relish. My meal was plated brilliantly and tasted even better than it looked! My husband was at first surprised to find his burger was not 100% beef. However, after two bites he remarked that if it have been all beef it would nave been too rich a meal. He finished every bite and had me sample the delicious spicy fries. When our waiter learned it was my birthday, my chocolate orange crème Brule arrived with a candle and a handsome group of nine waiters sang "Happy Birthday." This is but one example of how caring the wait staff is. At another table, a waiter playfully photo bombed an elderly ladies' photo. Still another waiter calmed and entertained two young sibling. Perhaps those who have seen the darkest of days know how to savor the joy in each moment. dinner, dessert, and drinks came to under $45 which is unheard of for an elegant meal in the city. I highly recommend Delancey Street and commend both their program and the people it services. For more on their mission, see the back of their menu. There are also rooms available for large groups or parties.

“Inexpensive, but food average at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

The reviews were good, and the bonus was the "cause," but the food and service disappointed us. We had lamb shank, ribeye, and the market fish, potstickers, fried artichokes, and one other appetizer so unmemorable it's been forgotten. Dishes weren't as hot at they should have been, seasoning was uneven, steak was overcooked. No one checked on us during the meal--we were hoping for a chance to order another glass of wine. It was not at all a busy night due to a baseball game just down the road. Location was nice, the bartender was friendly and informative, and the prices were, dare I say this, too low. And the cause is admirable, I wish them all the best. Maybe it was an off night.

“An excellent find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

The place offers great quality food, excellent service at an incredible price, a little off the beaten track but highly recommend checking this restaurant out.
Take time to read the back of the menu & their inspiring story.
We had 2 mains and desserts with a bottle of wine for as little as $45 we just couldn't understand why the place wasn't busier

“Still Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We love Delancey Street restaurant. It has great food, fantastic service and one of the most delicious hot fudge sundaes we have had anywhere and it's big enough to share! We ate here several times on our last trip to visit family in San Francisco and were never disappointed. Don't miss out, try this restaurant if you are in San Francisco!
