Really enjoyed the food at this place, would definitely go back... Don't expect great service, at least at the bar.

Food and wine was excellent nonetheless.

Best dinner in quite some time. Excellent menu, great location. Probably need a reservation made in advance.

Fantastic industrial rustic decor and cuisine that is without peer. Toughest part is securing reservations, but they do accommodate walk-ins.

To me, this place is all about people ordering lots of dishes & lots of drinks & paying far too much for the experience. It's a very noisy place & tables are close together in a small area.

My chestnut soup poured at the table over the minute diced pear,small thin strips of chard,minute bits of crispy chicken skin, all very delicate looking, arrived warm-not a good start. Not very filling either. I requested my next course be served on a hot plate.
Main course was King Salmon a reasonable size placed on top of few flageolet beans, tiny bits of dried apricot & cypress oil mixture & it came to the table on a hot plate. Not a proper meal at all.

Hence my opening comments.

Wouldn't come here again.
San Francisco has too many other restaurants better than here.

As many others have described, the buzz in and about this hot new place is a big part of the experience for those who are into it. The atmosphere definitely does not lack in energy. The service staff seems to work as a team, yet service was very slow and confusing. We couldn't tell who was in charge of what, starting with waiting for some time to be greeted and seated at our reserved table. We didn't see the server who took our order ever again, and were waited on by different people throughout the meal. We started with several appetizers including house-cured olives and the porcini doughnuts with raclette. I love olives, but these were under-cured, almost safety-green in color, and overpowered with celery flavor. The word raclette conjures visions of a big wheel of cheese melting in front of a roaring fire. These doughnuts had only a very few, microscopic pockets of raclette, and the only porcini flavor came from an excessive coating of porcini salt -- dreadful, and so, so disappointing! We had the signature Tajarin and a halibut entrée, both OK, but both surprisingly dull and under-seasoned. Again disappointing. For dessert, the olive oil cake was good. I really don't get what the fuss over this restaurant is all about.
