Cozy, intimate restaurant in the Mission serving straight forward delicious food. The deviled eggs are amazing. Fried chicken and steak entrees were tasty with generous portions. Reasonable wine list. Service was a bit slow but the waitress comped our wine to make up for it.

Had a great dinner. We were a party of 6 celebrating a birthday. I had the fried chicken which was great. Others order the meatloaf which they loved.

I LOVE THIS PLACE! I can't explain to you why anyone would NOT like this restaurant, but that's better for me and my husband anyways so we can always get a reservation. Everything is original, light, and so tasty. They are known for their meatloaf...More

The first time we came to the Blue Plate was about two years ago and on our daughter’s recommendation, we returned on our recent trip to San Francisco. The menu was similar with dishes like meatloaf and fried chicken, which are the “comfort foods” they...More

A friend and I dined here on a weeknight. I loved it! The atmosphere was very non-touristy; the dining room was full of locals and the staff knew many of the customers and warmly welcomed those they did not. The tables were cozy and close...More
