“Jazz Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great jazz music. Nice bar. Interesting menu. Location close to cable car. Lots of tour groups come here, so get there early to get a table.

A nice surprise away from crowded streets. Food was very good and the service attentive. Prices were reasonable as we'll.

“Let down by poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

The food and music were great, and I was seated pretty much straight away. Meal arrived quickly before the wine had been brought to the table (which was the wrong bottle and had to be sent back). After main course had been finished, no desserts were offered, and it took ages for payment to be taken. I nearly left as they seemed to be uninterested in taking payment, but the jazz band kept me there. Warning, a service charge is automatically added to bills. Could be so much better if the staff were more attentive.

“High quality breakfast in the City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Great value. Nice breakfast on a rainy San Francisco Saturday. Calm and delicious. Hip Jazz playing in background and interesting street life to watch.
