The happy hour is good if you go early but unfortunately we had a poor experience at dinner. After waiting 40 minutes for a table they stuck us in the bar area where we were surrounded by people standing/drinking. My husbands burger ($21) came out soaking in its own juices to the point he couldn't even pick it up because the bun was falling apart. We sent it back, they brought it back cleaned up but realized they had used the same bun just made it look cleaner on a new plate. For that price, the burger should be impeccable. I ordered the mussels + clams main. For a main, I'd expect a good size. This had only 6 mussels and 6 clams for $18. I rarely order a main and leave hungry. This place cares more about being "cool" than having quality food.

Great restaurant in the Marina District for American comfort food. Lovely ambiance and decor. Staff was really friendly and the food was delicious.

Amazing place. We've been here several times for dinner, brunch, and also late-night drinks. By far the best brunch menu in SF, and service was outstanding. Also highly recommend for a drinks spot with a group of friends. The vibe was fun, and the place is beautifully decorated like it was in the Victorian era. Cocktail menu rivals that at top NYC lounges. 5+ stars!!
