We had a reservation on a Tuesday night. We were seated, but about 25 minutes passed before anyone came to the table. Finally, someone came and indicated that they had accidentally forgot to mark our table as occupied in their system. We ordered and the food came out before the drinks.

If you cannot find an interesting bit to eat here, go back and try again. Sourdough of course is the feature and good it is.

We needed to be in and out of dinner to hit the ferry to Alcatraz. The wait staff did a great job, got us in and out without feeling rushed. The food was very good and the prices were very reasonable. Recommend to anyone.

My husband and I ate lunch here as it was recommended by hotel staff. We were so hungry we forgot to take photos, but I had the crab cake sandwich and my husband had the crab mac & cheese.

Although the place was full, the food was AMAZING. You must have a bowl of soup and enjoy the experience. Visiting the store is also enjoyable.

...and the full bar! Great views and you can enjoy a drink with your bread bowl. The atmosphere is way more relaxing than the hustle of the café downstairs. You pay a little more for the service, but it's well worth it.
