Over-rated for best breakfast! 7/19/2010

Went there yesterday for breakfast and was very disappointed! The wait was long and the tables are set together to close to your neighbors. The food took a long time and it was cold. They place the food in a counter that does not have any heat. Eggs were cold! You cannot split anything, because they charge a split fee! The muffins and scones tasted old and did not taste good! They are so many other places in San Francisco that have great bakeries. I will never go there again!! Parking is a problem and for the price you pay, you can go across the street and have a better breakfast with a better view of the harbor! Pros: Clean Cons: Tight spaces more

Organic/local-sustainable cuisine 12/18/2008

I remember our meal was tasty and filling, and the menu is big on organic and local/sustainable. We didn't have the prix fixe, but it is a good deal and is popular. I had fish and it was well prepared. Only drawback was service. It took quite a while for our meals to come, and even longer for them to bring our check. Good bread basket. If I went again I'd try their brunch. Nice location near the embarcadero. more

NOT one of the best. 6/15/2008

Went there twice on my visit to SF. Was highly rated and I'd been told it was one of the best breakfast's in SF. First time ordered eggwhite omelet with cheddar and bacon. Egg whites were barely cooked very little cheese and WAY too much bacon. Not impressed @ all. The basket of muffins and scones they bring to the table are good I wouldn't say great. Went back again to see if just an off morning or maybe what I ordered. This time I ordered egg white omelet with gruyere. Not difficult so thought how could it go wrong!? The cheese wasn't even melted in the omelet. Was inedible. Waiter only charged me for egg whites but no one ever asked me how I liked my meal and paid very little attention. I wouild NEVER go back and it should not be rated one of the best in SF. more

great deal for a quiet restaurant 1/10/2007

$20 prix fixe on Fri night (less for other nights?) chose anything from the menu, no restrictions or surcharges. The food is pretty good and they try to be organic. New fav for quiet, no-fuss dinner. Pros: simple, quiet, value Cons: too many choices! more

Excellent Dining Experience 3/23/2006

I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner at Town's End. We arrived 20 minutes before our reservation time and were seated promptly. The waiter was very professional and courteous and helped us select just the right wine with our dinners. The food was superb and I especially loved the homemade breads. I will definitely be coming back soom. Pros: Great value more

Amazing dinner for a bargain! 1/27/2006

Love the Pre-fixe dinner deal! A 3 course dinner for about $17.99 (wed-Sat). The crab cake and the pan-seared tuna were just right. For the main dish, I LOVED the beef ribs- succulent! The New york steak was made to perfection. As for dessert, the pecan pie and the pineapple upside down cake made a perfect ending. The only thing was that service was a tad slow- due to the shortage of staff. But if you are not in a hurry, it is a great place! Pros: Amazing food, great deal Cons: service more

Great food at bargain prices 10/17/2005

Very well executed basic dishes at bargain prices - this is my favorite neighborhood spot! On Tuesdays, it is neighborhood night with a 3 course dinner for $14.75. I've been here about 5 times and each time, the food is very well done, good quality and very tasty. You cannot beat the value here and even the wine list is way more interesting than you would expect from a place like this. I am impressed and will keep going back! Pros: Great food, Excellent value, Prompt service Cons: Parking on game night more

Great $17.95 prix fixe 7/3/2005

They just started a Wed-Sun prix fixe, any starter, any entree, & any dessert of their menu! Food is very fresh and atmosphere is semi-casual, so you can wear jeans or dress up. I recommend the salads & the ribeye- very delicious! Great value & we easily got a group reservation for 7 people. Pros: Great value, Good bread Cons: Not much parking, No online reserv more

Unbeatable Value 10/7/2004

Towns End is a great spot for any meal. As soon as you sit down to their weekend brunch, you are immediately given a delicious basket of baked goodies and jam to take the hunger edge off. (It's hard not to fill up on these delicious morsels alone!) They also have a very extensive and delicious brunch menu. My favorite meal, though, is dinner on Tuesday nights. They have a 3-course Prix Fixe menu for $13.50 where you can select soup or salad, ANY entree and ANY dessert from the regular menu. This deal is just unbeatable and the food is marvelous. Did I mention the super-attentive wait-staff? more

Excellent food; spotty service 6/15/2004

This is one of my favorite places for Saturday or Sunday morning brunch. The baked goods alone are worth the trip. Every dish I've had here has been good to excellent. I especially like the messy eggs - not overcooked with just enough of everything so that nothing overwhelms the other ingredients. Service, however, is another story. It depends on who you get and now that I've eaten there so many times, I know which wait-person to avoid. Pros: Scones, Food more

Worst Service!!!! 8/6/2003

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times. The food was good, but the service was barely passable. I took the chance and brought some out of town guests here. I was so embarassed and disappointed. The host was down-right rude about seating us and insisted we would have to leave in 1 hour so he could seat another party. The staff at this restaurant is rude and discourteous and I would never eat here again. more

excellent dinner deals! 6/8/2003

everyone knows about the great brunch they have, but their $12 pre fixe dinners are the best kept secret in the city. i live a block away and try to have dinner here at least once every other week. their ravioli is definitely above average, and their risotto is excellent. it's hard to find decent risotto in the city for $12, let alone risotto + salad + creme brulee. mmmm........ Pros: cheap pre fixe, great brunch Cons: uncomfortable chairs, noisy weeknd brunch more

great brunch 4/22/2003

I've been going to Town's End for years and they are consistently my favorite brunch in The City. Fantastc fresh baked breads for the table, good coffee and hearty portions of very good food. And it is family run too. Also has a great location for the walk along the bay afterwards...if I am not too full! Pros: great bakery & food, very reasonable, inside/outside tables Cons: may have to wait more
