Attractive restaurant with attentive, knowledgeable staff.
Take your time here, enjoy a couple of courses and make sure that you are keen to try something new! The wine list is very extensive and in depth and is well worth you spending some time perusing. All in all this was one of the best experiences we had in San Francisco and would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in food and wine.

My friend and I had tickets to the ballet and made reservations here for dinner (reservations are a must). I had the short ribs and these short ribs are the best I've ever had in the city (and I've been to many others restaurants before and after and nothing has compared). Great service and waiter was amazing.

The set menu is a delight, but it took two+ hours to finish dinner. There seemed to be a lot of waiting between courses. We nearly fell asleep. The food was outstanding and beautifully presented.

This restaurant was suggested to us by a friend. On Monday evenings they have a 3 course tasting with wine pairings from local vintners.. Each Monday is a different menu and winery. Last evening, the featured wines were from Donkey & Goat winery, The food was excellent - a polenta and lobster dish to start, with short ribs and gnocchi as the main course. The dessert was a maple and apple pastry. (My descriptions don't quite do the menu justice!) However, the taste sensations were wonderful and the pairings perfect!
The setting was also quite incredible, a moderate sized restaurant with warm decor and a gorgeous art deco style rail and banister leading to the upstairs dining room. A very special place indeed!

We planned a group dinner here for a recent conference. We could not have been more pleased. The staff was courteous, professional and very friendly. The food was delicious and the space they gave us was perfect.
