Queit hidden Gem 11/7/2009

We were delighted to find this quiet corner of North Beach!! There are few places still around that you can catch game 5 of the World Series while listening to live Piano music! Great drinks, wonderful food. We tried the Duck fat fries and Calamari (which had a perfect kick of spice) to start, then the Burger and Linguini with Clams for our entrees. Everything was delicious! Pros: Ambiance, Character, Charm and one hell of a Manhattan more

Wonderful wonderful wonderful 11/6/2009

We were a little hesitant at first because there was no one at the front door to greet us, but we were very happy we chose to stay! We had a great meal at the bar with friendly service and listened to an amazing live pianists! Overall everything was amazing. The atmosphere was wonderful and the restaurant has old San Francisco Charm. We can't wait to go back! Pros: Great live piano music Cons: No one was at the door to great us. more

Closed- Shuttered for good! 1/2/2008

I went by today and this place was closed for business, the landlord was looking in as well. He seemed surprised the place was closed. The delivery of bread was still sitting on the table and not a soul in sight. Pretty odd. Considering they were opened the night before. Pros: Cheap because its closed Cons: Closed more

good food, great service, but bad management 11/8/2006

The restaurant was great at first! It's in a great location with a good old-fashioned atmosphere. We were greeted at the door by a hostess who was cheerful, pleasant and seated us quickly. The waitress was attentive and the food she recommended was terrific! Unfortunately our otherwise perfect meal was ruined by someone screaming in the back in the kitchen. From what I was told it was the owner who was yelling. My husband wanted to leave right then. I can't imagine the owner can keep any of his staff for very long with that type of innapropriate berating. That's definitely no way to run a good restaurant! All in all, I might recommend this restaurant because of the food and service - but stay as far away from the kitchen and the screaming as you can. If I wanted that type of chaos at dinner I would go out to dinner with seven toddlers. Pros: Service, Food, Location Cons: Ambience and a very angry yelling man more

Love this place!!!!! 9/14/2006

Wow! Definitely worth a return visit!! I cant believe this is the same restaurant I ate at a few years ago. I met a group of friends at the Washington Square Bar and Grill for what was supposed to be drinkswatching what looked like amazing food leave the kitchen made it impossible to leave Although we didnt have reservations for what turned out to be 11 of us, the awesome hostess made a comfy seating arrangement possible on the fly Way to go girl and thanks for making it happen on such short notice I had an out of this world wild mushroom strudel. So glad we decided to stay. more

Food was ok, service was NOT OK! 10/9/2005

Arrived for dinner with reservation, had to wait about 10min for our table to be setup. Then another 15 or so before our order was taken. Water and bruschetta came late. Another long wait before our food finally came, brought out by the busboy, followed by the waitress who mouthed the usual 'is everything alright', then no service for the rest of the meal. Had to wait for our plates to be taken away, for the check, for her to take the check, for her to bring the check, took us almost 2 hours to eat a one course meal! Would not go back again. Pros: free bruschetta, clean Cons: loud, sloooow service, bad service more
