Was on business by myself and stopped by for Eggs Benedict. I had good memories of them few years ago and I like the place for its European "brasserie" atmosphere. Well, without need to go into great details, for $20 you now get a pale interpretation of Eggs Benedict. Hollandaise sauce was most likely bought by the gallon. The addition... More

This restaurant's walls and halls are a who's - who of celebrities and trinkets and chachkies. The food is traditional Italian so you can get all of your favorites. My favorite was the calamari and eggplant Parmesan.

Dined with a child. Ordered. Had to request bread. Had to request olive oil. All tables had it but ours. Again, dining with a child (2 year old). Child usually loves olive oil and bread at home and in all restaurants. She would not touch pieces that touched the oil. After my spouse and I tried it we realized why.... More

Kuletos was close to our hotel and so we figured we'd give it a try. Front of house ok and our waitress good. Food was however really mediocre, calamari an overcooked battered mess, my pasta special with shrimp (2) was particularly poor. Bruschetta was good. Of our party (5) only the duck pasta entree was rated well. Wine reasonably priced... More

My husband and I are in San Francisco for 4 days and we were looking for a nice restaurant for our first meal out. The restaurant looks nice from the outside, but looks can be deceiving. The restaurant is very overpriced with a very limited menu. Staff were more concerned with bigger tables than tables of 2, despite those tables... More

I went there twice as I was staying in the Villa Florence hotel. The staff is friendly, professional and helpful, so no complaints there. The food was not bad, but not impressive. It's a modern take on Italian food, but the components just didn't blend well. A food critic that I know says it best "it's fusion gone horribly wrong."... More

Had lunch here. A mixed experience. Good service to start with but when my sandwich came with greens yet I'd ordered fries, the waitress said she'd bring me a side of fries yet they never appeared. My husband's burger was a little small & greasy but tasty enough. My Italian sandwich was good. Overall expensive for what it was

I meet my friends here often for lunch and shopping. Reserve one of the small booths for 2 in the bar section for privacy and ambience. Service is good. Bread selections unique. Roasted Chicken is my favorite.
