Description: At Sauce: Gough we serve what we like to call "Social Cuisine" - American comfort fare so good you'll want everyone at the table to try a bite. It's shared food without the tiny plates. Come sample Chef Ben's creations along with some drinks in the intimate Supper Club; cozy up to the beautiful redwood bar for a signature cocktail; or, enjoy a meal in the bustling main dining room. Experience what happens when Comfort Food meets California Cuisine — it could be our Tomato Bisque with white truffle grilled cheese sticks; Portobello mushroom fries; or our signature applewood-smoked-bacon wrapped meatloaf, something is sure to tickle your fancy. Located just a few blocks from the civic center in Hayes Valley, Sauce: Gough is the welcoming result of three partners' desire to create a comfortable spot for drinking and dining. Pre-Show, post-show and for all your private events Sauce is the place. Stop by for dinner any night between 5pm and Midnight and see for yourself; what’s cooking

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2008

Expected more in the way of food flavor ... everything was too salty. Also expected pricing to be more reasonable. Warm, cozy, romantic atmosphere.

Bypass ordering a single dessert item. Opt for the Sauce Sampler. You will NOT be disappointed!!

Open till late, great food and service. Who could ask for anything more?

I've been to Sauce a few times and their food has always been great, but what made the place memorable was the friendly staff.

They'll always recommend the Mac & Cheese, but don't do it. It's so rich, actually too rich for most people that they will not feel good if you eat more than half of it.

Do the Hanger Steak, start with the bacon wrapped scallops with brussel sprouts or the deep fried wonton with cream cheese.
