Maybe we just dined on an "off" nite. There was an extrememly rowdy table of diners seated near us. The staff and management didn't seem to care, even though other diners also complained of the noise...It took forever for us to get our food, and when we did, it was less than adequate. This is NOT a cheap restaurant..and we won't return.

Looking for a little Europe in America? Here it is, Belden Taverna is it. It's in an alley guarded by buildings so you are safe from the San Fran winds.

We enjoyed our meal at the Belden Taverna party because of the location. This is wonderful, San Franciscan use of space! You dine in an alley beside the building (which house the restaurant kitchens) and you have a variety of restaurants and cuisines to choose from. We were pleased with the food and had a great experience here. It was more expensive than other restaurants we visited but the atmosphere was great.

Overpriced for a small amount of food. I only sat down because I was starving and too tired to find somewhere else. If you're ok with paying over $20 for an entree than it's not too bad. Belden is full of restaurants and sitting outside was nice. But again, they are ALL overpriced!

Dined here with a group of 12 this week. It's a cute place on an alley with lots of outdoor seating. I was really hoping the food would be on par with the location and atmosphere, but was really disappointing. Appetizers were decent. Truffle mac and cheese was really good and calamari was nice. Meatballs were ok, vege spring rolls were bland. Lobster bisque had to be one of the worst I've had. There was absolutely no lobster and little flavor. The spicy corn salad they use as a garnish is a distraction -- it overpowers the soup. Definitely not up to par. Spinach and Ricotta ravioli were bland --- pasta was almost crispy around the edges. Stuffed chicken was dry with little stuffing --- also disappointing.
Service was terrible. Things were really slow, attention to detail was poor, we couldn't get drink refills.... Apparently they had a larger party upstairs. But when you know you have several large parties, you have to staff appropriately --- I'm sure neither group was a surprise....

With all the wonderful places in SF, I won't be back.
