“Food was great”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We visited here as my bf had been before and wanted me to try. We got starters and then mains. 5 of us and our food came out quite quickly and our drinks were refilled with out even asking. The waitress was a it moody when we asked for extra stuff like sauces and to add things to the order. There where two workers but she seemed to be doing all the work so I don't blame her for being in a rush. The price was reasonable and food very good I took some home with me.

“Started off rocky and ended wonderfully!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

My GF and I went in for dinner and a drink. We were seated quickly and then waited...and waited...and waited. After 15min., we finally got up and sat at the bar. Here, we were greeted by a friendly female waitress who was interested in helping us. I had the portobello mushroom sandwich with tots and the GF had the pulled pork with corn bread, potato salad and broccoli. We also had a couple of beers. The food was off the charts good and so was her service. She was helpful in selecting a tour we were considering the next day.

The experience started off poorly after we felt ignored, but we were glad we gave it a chance at the bar. We will be back if we visit again!

“Chocalate wonder!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

When in San Francisco, Ghirardelli is a must go see and eat. Opened at the turn of the century, it offers a great selection of chocolates and a whole lot of other goodies. And if you just go in and visit, they will offer you one of their treats on the house! Try their famous brownies and enjoy the visit!

“Good food, good drink, good view”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Low key, simple and delicious. Nice view of the bay from the big windows. Good BBQ and would definitely stop in again.

“A great place to chill out”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is another of one of our favourite San Francisco places. It's just wonderful to sit at the bar relax and enjoy a couple of lovely drinks.

What makes it so good? Location, drinks and staff. So first the location, just a few blocks from one of busiest areas of town and the design of the pub reminds me of the old gin palace bars you find in London. Then the drinks, whether it's great beer off tap, a mouth watering selection of wines or treating yourself to a yummy cocktail, the choice is yours and no need to worry as they are all good. Then the staff, relaxed, happy and professional.

Being veggies we've only eaten here a few times over the years, but the starters and veggie sides are more than enough to make a meal. We have though taken friends and relatives here and they seem to have really enjoyed the meat dishes they've ordered.

We're heading back to SF in May and after a 10 hour flight we know where our first stop will be, let the countdown begin.
