Great drinks and bites; Friendly and sophisticated 3/4/2007

Although this is basically an adult venue, my husband and I recently took our daughter and 5 nicely dressed girlfriends there for a 17th birthday treat. We were seated in the L-shaped booth. Our waitress was very informative about the various plates. We all partook of the lamb sliders (excellent), the little quesedillas, salmon toasts, and the wonderful skinny fries. It seems they pride themselves on using as much locally grown and organic ingredients as possible. Even my Cosmopolitan was composed of an organic vodka with a wonderful swirl of orange rind! We enjoyed Chocolate Potde Creme and Date Cake for dessert. Everything was nicely presented. The head chef came out of the kitchen to make sure we were happy! The atmosphere is sophisticated, friendly, but not intrusive. The decor is set in earthy brown tones with simple glass votive candles adding sophistication. Seating is limited. Great place for a date. Pros: original drinks, great small plates, atmosphere Cons: parking more

Overpriced! 1/30/2007

The drinks are outrageously high for what you get. The music is drab and sleepy. Step it up Alembic! Pros: good neighborhood, location Cons: way overpriced, stuffy staff/owners more

Great new spot in San Francisco 12/20/2006

Loved the atmosphere, perfect balance between swank and neighborhood. Also, a place you can actually talk in, never too loud. The small plates are very good, definitely rich though. Many dishes have bacon or other meat. The version of Cheesesteak is very good. Great drinks, particularly if you like classic cocktails or bourbon. Will definitely go again and again. Pros: Well-priced, good atmosphere, great wine/beer/cocktail list Cons: As always, no parking more

GREAT ADDITION TO THE SF DINING SCENE 11/7/2006

Tucked away on Upper Haight, next to the Red Vic movie house this new spot has all the essentials for Pros: drinks, food, nice vibe Cons: didnt like the muzak playin more

  • The Scene
    This one-room escape feels cozy yet spacious thanks to high ceilings, soft lighting and barren mustard walls. Views of the Upper-Haight hubbub are visible from two tall tables...
