Service
 
An "interesting menu" of American tapas and other "upscale comfort" food is served by "lovely" staffers at these SF siblings, where dining "outdoors under the stars" in restaurant alley Belden Place can feel "very European" ; the "relaxed" Hayes Valley original offers "a good buy for pre-theater."

It’s no exaggeration to say this was the worst service I’ve ever received at any restaurant in the world (for reference, I’m 30 and quite well-travelled). I went there with two new friends and from the very beginning, our waitress was rude and condescending. Every request or question about the menu options was met with a sarcastic response. I was the only native English speaker in our group (though clearly not a local). When one of the others asked for recommendations of beers, rather than suggesting something for him, she impatiently told him he knew nothing about beer. Throughout the whole evening, her manner was curt and aggressive. When we were splitting up the bill amongst ourselves at the end, she came by to take payment. I said we needed another minute. Seeing that one of our party was counting some coins she looked over and sneered at him saying “You can keep your quarters, I don’t need those”. Perhaps the worst part, though, was at the end. She was astonished that we didn’t tip her and demanded to know why. I explained patiently that we all felt her manner had been rude and unpleasant. Rather than apologising and trying to understand why we felt that way, she threw her hands up in disbelief, clearly implying that we were in the wrong. In our party of three, each from a different country and background, none could quite believe just how mean-spirited our waitress was. The meal itself was good (though slow to arrive). But honestly, even if it had been the best food of my life, nothing would have stopped me from leaving with a bitter taste in my mouth.

Went there with work. They had a nice amount of shared platters and some good food that comes in large portions. They also offer some craft beers.

Food is average to above average, but is a fun vibe when you're hanging out with friends or co-workers for happy hour
