“Tasty Thanksgiving Feast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

After a week at UCSF die to our sons hospitalization, it was obvious we were not going to be home for Thanksgiving so we started looking for a place for a (partial) family Thanksgiving. Arrived and were promptly escorted to our table and then greeted by the waiter. Traditional Thanksgiving menu with/without wine pairing. Since there were four of us, we opted to order two bottles of wine which was definitely less than the $30/person pairing. We did splurge and start with the optional cracked crab appetizer- definitely a good choice!! Then the feast began! The food was well prepared and very tasty. A little bit of home comfort after a long week! Turkey was moist and plentiful - the dark meat was scrumptious. Sides were also good, rave reviews for the broccoli as well as the pea and bacon salad. Sincewe couldn't be at home, this was a nice second choice.

“okay experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

This restaurant was highly recommended to me for dinner with out-of-town colleagues. While the food was good, the service was less enjoyable. At one point in the night, there were no staff members on the floor and I looked on hopelessly to get the check.

The atmosphere did not seem not appropriate for this kind of group, and unfortunately, the service took away from the food completely. The next day, some of my colleagues noted that the experience was disappointing.

My impression is that this is a more casual place that would be good for friends. I would not recommend this for business groups (for dinner) or solo travel.

“For a Perfect Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Frequently take clients out to lunch. I know The Social Club will be consistent - and delicious.
Great Salads and specials. I am a big fan of their Meat Loaf Sandwich with a divine small salad and two ginger cookies. Yum. Perfect. Very popular spot - is in the beautiful Presidio - hence, easy access off the Golden Gate Bridge. Parking - by meter - ample. Dinner, understandably, is very popular - call for reservations. Can be noisy. Maureen, the manager is top-drawer.

“Go for the ambiance”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Inside the Presidio, this used to be where the officers dined. Reservations are recommended. The menu is umimpressive, but chance to feel what it was like as a special watering hole for officers gives it appeal.
