We went to celebrate a birthday at lunchtime and it was great! All the appetizers we tried were great (peppers, popcorn, pea greens) but the show stopper is the fondue! Please try the fondue! The burgers, salads and sandwiches were great and the staff brought...out a candle in the dessert, which we greatly appreciated. Fantastic option for lunch!More
Popped in after a trip to the Union Sq. Neighborhood, where my spouse & I did some shopping. The original plan was to head to the Marina/GG Bridge district for bites and a walk. Stopping at Magnolia was a diversion due to the weather (we...should know better having lived in the Marina district).
By the time we reached the dogpatch, we were desperate for food... there were no events nearby that Saturday and we were seated right away in the "beer garden" at a communal picnic table. The beer garden is fully enclosed, by the way. It is a nice space, set up with a couple of large TVs, and bleachers which makes it a great space for major event viewing and the like. This day the bleachers were a makeshift playspace for a number of the kids that accompanied their adults for a 4-pm gathering. It is a good space for families.
Ok... on to food and drinks... the server was slow to arrive initially, maybe 4 minutes after seating. After the initial greeting, she was quite attentive since we ordered food and drinks in two batches, and she knew her stuff especially given the diet restrictions we presented. Food was super-fast to arrive.
I must complement the French Fries we ordered from the starters menu. I cannot recall any more perfectly cooked or salted fries. I think I maybe one time I ate in a Napa Valley temple of food ... these too were perfect! And forget the ketchup, these paired best with the Aioli. The very-large portion "Broken Falafel" salad was also a highlight, but could have used two more falafel (four half pieces). The other starters we ordered were both very well executed.
We are not big beer drinkers, the cocktails are interesting, but today we sampled a glass of wine and a Radler. Both were quite good, and the Radler in particular was excellent value for money. I was disappointed that the beer selection was so focused on the "American IPA" style; there were other options (three, I recall) but of 20+ beers ... If you really want that, it is a good beer list.More
We stopped in for a late lunch today. So disappointed that it took 20 minutes for the young man to even take our order. 45 minutes later we received the appetizer of popcorn. The beer was good but the price point for the food ($16...for a burger) means you can get good service and good food elsewhere for the same cost. The carrot side was good. The chicken was flavorful but very small. I will skip visiting again. San Francisco has WAY to many amazing choices to waste time here.More
