“A refreshing new addition to San Francisco's bar scene”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Come to Upcider if you are looking for something a little bit different than the typical San Francisco bar. The cider menu is extensive, the staff is well educated on all of the nuances of each type of cider, and I was impressed by all of the small, local offerings. The food is great and also not typical bar food. The pork sliders, salmon sliders, spinach flatbread, and buffalo fries are particularly delicious. An added bonus: the great view from the huge windows on the second floor.

“Delicious Cider Bar”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We're usually beer drinkers, and found this spot a real treat. The extensive cider menu (2-3 pages!) meant we found several delicious options. The staff we very friendly and helpful, as well.

“Perfect place for the gluten free!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

I was visiting a friend in SF and we're both gluten free and LOVE cider. We were really excited to check upcider out. They have two pages of ciders! Much of their food can be made gluten free as well. The cider out waiter helped us pick out was delicious and the food (we both had a slider, the pulled pork and the spicy lamb, and shared some garlic fries) was great. The highlight though was the service. Everyone was nice and helpful and made sure we had a great experience. It's a really cute spot also. The only negative was the noise, but it was a Friday night on Polk, so completely understandable. Maybe don't come here if you want deep conversation. Otherwise, a great spot for a drink and food that's a little different than the usual.

“Excellent Sliders & Ciders”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

To tell the truth, I didn't know much about ciders until Upcider opened in San Francisco's crazy Polk St. recently. I'm not a fan of beer or wine either, so I tried couple of varieties of cider there, and now totally sold on the idea of having a refreshing, bubbly cider with my dinner!
They have all kinds of ciders from many different countries, mostly European.
So far my favorites are Whyders Pear Cider, Fox Barrel Blackberry, and some Scottish with Whiskey flavor - ask the cool bartenders, they'll tell you all about them!
And as for the sliders--- yumm! Portobello mushroom slider with grilled onions and bluecheese dressing is amazing, and so is the Lamb one..
If you are visiting SF, Polk & Sutter is really a place to see especially on a weekend night..And while you're there go upstairs of Subway, and Vertigo, and watch the craziness from the window counters of Upcider while sipping your cider.
