THE BEST FOOD IN SF Peter Bruce Photo


I went there yesterday using Dine About Town and I was not that impressed with the food for the most part. My boyfriend got the meatloaf, but the chef seemed to forget the ""loaf...

Great Cocktails in Hayes Valley 4/30/2006

5 stars for the bar Food not reviewed yet On the recommendation of Isotope owner James, my wife and I decided to head over to Sauce for a quick cocktail on the way back home after picking up some comics at his shop. The bar is warm and inviting, and the drinks are both strong and well poured. An "el Diablo" was well made, with a distinct tequila flavor typically missing in most tequila cocktails. My wife's "Pink Pearl Necklace" (gotta love that name) was also quite good. The cocktail highlight was the negroni - quite possibly the best I have had in the United States. Made with Nr. 209 gin, it was strong, herbal and perfectly balanced in its sweetness. If you're looking for good cocktails in Hayes Valley, Sauce is highly recommended. Visit Date: 2/5/06 more

Tasty place to check out 1/14/2006

Gus and I decided to check this place out because of the high rating herre. We both thought it earned a high rating. Very tasty. We began with mushroom fries and crab wontons. The preparation for these didn't obliterate the quality of the ingredients--they had a nice level of spicing. Simple, light, not overbearing in any way. You could really get crab out of the crab wonton, for example, and you could taste the smokiness of the portabello mushrooms. For entrees, I had a Hawaiian fish on pumpkin risotto with broccoli rabe. The broccoli rabe wasn't anything to write home about, but I liked the fish and loved the risotto. (But I'm a sucker for pumpkin risotto.) If you have a really discerning fussiness about fish you might have wanted a little lighter buttering/oiling, but I thought it tasted good. Gus had the pork and beans, which is really a misnomer since it is very fine pork tenderloin. He was happy with it and shared a bit. Yum. For dessert we had the little donut holes with cinnamon dipping sauce. We couldn't finish them, but they were pretty yummy. Pretty heavy, though, but still probably among the lightest things on the dessert menu. They recommend the sampler, but I'm too skeptical of the PB&J dessert. I like strawberry preserves a lot, but I don't think they belong in desserts. I could be wrong on this, but I wasn't feeling adventurous last night. Gus gives them 3-4 stars on wine selection, btw. And we note that they didn't do the fashionable (and kinda rude) thing of taking one person's plate away while the other is still working. Good show. Cons: Way too many quotation marks on the menu more
