“Disappointed after recommendations”
Reviewed October 20, 2009

We were in San Francisco and Berkeley for 5 days on vacation. This was the only negative experience we had out of all the meals and drinks (there were many) on vacation. We tailgated with friends for the Cal game then stopped in here for dinner and drinks based on a few recommendations. Our waitress seemed annoyed from the beginning. The one Irish Coffee we ordered had stale cream in it. But the waitress was nowhere to be found. The drink orders were wrong. And when we received the bill it was way more expensive than we expected for two rounds of drinks, chicken wings and a burger. Skip it.
