“Make a reservation so you don't have to wait too long”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Make sure you have a reservation or else you have to wait for a while as it's super popular. The food is delicious and the service was very friendly also. Valencia street have very eclectic shopping so it's a nice stroll before or after the meal. 16th Street Bart (Mission) can be scary, so make sure all electronic items (esp. iPhone, etc) are hidden and walk with a purpose.

“Get ready to wait.”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

There is almost always a line. A long line. An inexplicable line. But if you want a loaf of really interesting whole grain bread - there's no better place in town. They bake bread in the late afternoon (4:30pm) so if you go before, you'll only be able to pick up pastry. They do a second baking sometime before 6pm.

“Heavenly”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

My husband and I took an expensive taxi ride to get to Tartine and waited in line to get in. It was so good we would have done it all again if we had the time during our four day stay in SF. Devine croque monsieur and café au lait a good as France. Everything that passed our view looked fabulous. I wish I could have eaten more.

“Amazing as recommended”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Well, obviously this place is already super popular and had been recommended to me before but I had yet to go. It's not super convenient to get to and be prepared to wait. However, the food was amazing and in our two night stay, we ended up coming back again during our trip when we were at a restaurant nearby. We obviously over-ordered and stuffed ourselves so we could try several things. The banana tart was my favorite. The other thing that could bother some people is it's small inside and can be hard to get a table after you order. However, you can take it to go to avoid that problem.
