Had dinner with my 2 teen daughters and everyone has very happy at the end. Especially appreciated were the appetizers, e.g. deviled eggs were excellent.

I called on the same day for a party of 9 and the restaurant was very accomodating. The food was delicious and the portions were big for me. I enjoyed my leftovers for lunch the next day! The wait staff were very nice and friendly.

Good food. Menu could use a refreshing. As could the aesthetic inside. Service was smart and food came out fast - and it was fairly good but not great. Could be the nicest restaurant on Castro St, if it mixed things up a bit.

Went for a cocktail with an old friend and ordered the craft Sazerac. Worst ever. It could have been fixed with an ice cube, but it already tasted diluted. Service was prompt, but will avoid in the future.

Had the deviled eggs with crabmeat and the pizza with pepperoni and pork cracklings and both were delicious! In addition to an extensive wine list they also have some great local beers on tap!

We were a big Group. Unlike other restaurants they had multiple waiters. Attitude was good and good was creative and tasted good. Lots of options for all kinds of restrictions. They have separate menus for restrictions and you have ask for them. Overall good stuff.
