We ate here after sampling Paragon's food at an event at the SFMOMA, and it did live up to expectation.
Unfortunately we chose the night of a big ballgame, so it was a little rowdy, and our server seemed more interested in drinking than actually serving us.
We both ordered the prohibition beer, which was excellent, and both ordered the Grilled cheese and tomato soup combo. which was also excellent.
We actually shared an appetiser of mini corn dogs with a sauce that was pretty forgettable, although seemed a pretty good beer snack as we waited for our entree.
I'm not sure i'd eat here again, but would recommend to friends.

5 stars for the look of the restaurant. Very chic, especially the bar area.

3 stars for food.
The good stuff: mushroom cigars (unique), chicken salad sandwich (good combo of ingredients), creme brulee.
The so-so stuff: garlic fries, sauteed spinach.
The bad stuff: Cuban Sandwich (dry & bland), Fried Plantains (like dry fried dough).

2 stars for service. It took them a long time to notice we were waiting to be seated. They weren't even busy or anything. Just chatting at the bar. Then they messed up on our order. Then they charged us a dish we didn't order. I'm sure they didn't do any of these purposely. They just need to be more attentive to what they are doing.

It took them a

A little chi chi for my taste. They've fancied-up a lot of good old favorites. My experience there has been hit or miss.
