“Sad end to a perfect day”
Reviewed January 4, 2007

Let's see: It takes close to fifteen minutes for someone to come and take our order. The waitress is foreign so there's a little bit of a communication barrier. She doesn't even write the order down. The appetizer comes AFTER our meal. The fish and chips, as well as the calamari, are barely luke warm when they arrive. The waitress forgets our dressing for the Shrimp and Crab Louie. She tells us she has to go upstairs for it so it may take awhile. By the time she comes back with the dressing everyone else is done with their meals. We ask to speak with a manager. We wait close to half an hour, the entire time being painfully polite as the waitress continues to come over and tell us he is very busy on the upper level of the restaurant due to the large crowd there. We go up and the place is relatively empty. One of the hostesses tells us it's a quiet evening. Manager never comes, though he does knock the bill in half. That wasn't even the point! Up until dinner we had had a magical day in the city. The dinner didn't really ruin our day, but it sure did put a damper on it. Next time we'll just do In and Out burgers and save the money.

We are an over the counter fast food stand with no table or waiter service. This is for another restaurant. Our place is only 263 square feet with no seating.

“A nice end to a busy day....”
Reviewed March 20, 2006

We ate at Dante's at the end of a very busy day. It was a little on the pricey side, but not outrageous.
The service was very good, and our waiter was really nice. The meal was excellent and couldn't be faulted, we even had a free bottle of wine courtesy of Blue and Gold Fleet. The restaurant was pretty busy when we went, but we got a table by the window and had great views of the Transamerica Pyramid and the SF skylibe, it was magical. Next time we are in the area, which i hope will be soon, we will stop by for dinner again.

“Lousy Service”
Reviewed March 11, 2005

We were seated at a table near the kitchen. Ordered 2 sodas. Shortly after, we changed our minds about eating at this place. It was way too loud. We informed the waiter that we were leaving. He wanted to charge us for the soda that he did not bring to us yet.

This reviewer is claiming we have waiter service. We do not. Aunt Fanny's is a 263 square feet over-the-counter fast food concession. Our menu is pretzels, hot dogs,nachos and drinks with soft serve ice cream. We have NO tables or waiters! Please remove. Thank you for your consideration.
