    The puff bread here is so heaven (like a cross between a brioche and croissant with less butter) and comes with every meal. Grab a seat at the chef's counter to watch the magic happen!

    You'll get fresh popovers with butter within about five minutes of sitting down. Eat them while they're warm! The stake tartare comes with green garlic popovers, which are delicious too.

    Eat the popover with the most amazing salted butter. Definitely make reservations and go for the fried chicken, burger le grand, and doughnuts. Request to sit at the chef's counter for a kitchen show.

    A killer house burger, made from five different cuts of grass-fed, dry-aged beef and topped with a slab of Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam cheese, roasted onions, and a couple slabs of bacon Read more

    The "restaurant-style" fried chicken is brined and thinly battered with well seasoned buttermilk batter, and garnished with roasted garlic, salt, fried herbs, and lemon, and it's damn good. Read more

    It's amazing what comes out of Tyler Florence's small kitchen at this multi-level restaurant. Try the ricotta and mint agnolotti in butter sauce with English peas, snap peas, and fava beans. Read more

    Got the East Coast and West Coast oysters and the house burger. Amazing food. Heard a lot of compliments about the fried chicken too. Will make sure to go again.

    The mac and cheese was amazing. The fried chicken lives up to the reputation. The burger was good but mostly due to the awesome bun. The toffee dessert with the port pairing was great as well.

    Everything on the menu is masterfully crafted, except flavor leans salty. Cocktails, poutine, fried chicken, deviled eggs: great. Surprisingly transcendent: their salads.

    Organic fried chicken, avocado & hearts of palm salad, roasted corn soup-yum. We sat at the chef's bar twice during our recent SF visit. Looks like the steak tartare & devil eggs are next on list!

    This is a keeper. The food? Amazing! Fresh popovers accompany the delicious house specialty: Fried Chicken! But there’s more: you must order the Mac-N-Cheese, Deviled Eggs, and Bacon-Wrapped Dates.

    Order the organic fried chicken or the burger with an egg on top. They're both the best items on the menu. The popovers melt in your mouth, & the salted butter is an ABSOLUTE requirement.

    Fried chicken is excellent and the avocado and heart of Palm salad is tasty. Sitting by the fireplace can get warm and it's near the server station so high traffic.

    Fine fare in a classic bar/restaurant venue. Located in downtown San Francisco, close to Chinatown, Embarcadero Center and the Financial District.

    Make sure someone at the table gets the fried chicken. It’s by far the best in SF. Maybe ever.

    Everything here is DELICIOUS! Ask for extra popovers, and don’t skip the Mac n cheese, beef tartare, Brussels sprouts, and the burger!

    The food & beverage here are five star to include service. They are very welcoming and it makes you want to come back. Deviled eggs no one wanted to order @ the bar until we did. Oh how good they are!

    I come here for the popovers! Bone marrow is amazing, but not here in the summer. Steak tartar, deviled eggs & fried chicken are also winners! Reserve weeks early so ur not eating at 5:15 or 9:45pm!

    They are known for their fried chicken and deviled eggs. I wouldn't get the chicken again, but the deviled eggs are awesome! Chopped salad was great too :)

    Grilled squid appetizer is a must. Cocktails are on the strong side and poorly executed. Watch out for how well done your meat is...Ordered the $50 American Kobe steak and medium rare was medium well

    Tell them you're dining with the mayor. You'll find a surprise under the table. Also, deviled eggs, Brussels sprouts and Kobe tartar are awesome.
