The food was excellent. The fried chicken was as good as advertised. Moist but not greasy and very flavorful. Burger was also A+. Service was so so. A bit slow and inattentive.

Love this place. Great vibe, true Tavern feel. Service was wonderful, attentive and thoughtful. The food itself was spot on. For everyone questioning, the friend chicken really is that good. It is very shareable for two people (that is what we did with a couple of sides). Some of the beast steak tartare I have had in years. Well done.

My daughter and I were in SF for five nights and this was one of our favorite meals while there. Great mac and cheese and fried chicken and awesome popovers!

We tried famous fried chicken. It was like in KFC, only for 10 times higher price. Very dissapoiting!

Portion was very big, that we could not finish it (due to poor taste even did not want to finish).

Three of us gals dined here yesterday. We had reservations which is a must. Our reservations were for 1:30. Even at this time, the restaurant was very crowded because the food is delicious. This was my second visit here.

The three of us each had a glass of wine, and split three items: fried chicken entry, a large salad with apples and blueberries and kale, and green beans. We were served popovers as our bread to go along with the whipped butter and flakey sea salt.

Everything was great - the food, the service, and the restaurant. It was noisy until about 2:15, so if noise is an issue, I would consider dining later in the day or perhaps earlier.

I'll be back.
