Small, informal restaurant in North Beach featuring innovative Asian-fusion fare.- Google
"The fried salmon roll with the hot mustard sauce is a must with white wine."
"My favorite is the Sea Bass for sure."

This is the snootiest, most self-satisfied restaurant I've ever been to. That includes all Michelin star places in San Francisco, LA and Vegas I've dined at. This place's nose is so far up its own ass, a team of Sherlock Holmes and Batman would need a week to find it. I'm willing to forgive the typical San Francisco-ness of having to make reservations over a month in advance. *But* with the North Beach parking craziness, I was literally 11 minutes late. I called in advance saying I was having parking issues and would be 15 mins late. They said they give up tables after 10 minutes and there was a "mob" outside. And we'd probably have to wait the full two hours for a table. When we got to the restaurant, there were 3 people outside. If that counts a mob, these guys probably shit themselves at Bay to Breakers. Fortunately we *were* seated relatively quickly...after an excessively rude waitress snapped at us and told us to wait outside. From the moment we sat down, to the moment we were out the door, we were rushed and made to feel most unwelcome. A waiter wanted to bring out our entrees 5 mins after we'd been served appetizers. This is *after* I already bought a $70 bottle of wine off these people, so it was going to be a good size tab. When I told him to wait for us to finish our appetizers, they looked super offended. Please. Entrees were brought out the instant I took the last bite of appetizer, and we were rushed through those as well by the staff. To be quite honest, the food was average for the price. It was decent, but for a $80 food tab (two apps, two entrees) I would expect adequate food. Total bill was $150, so I'd expect better service considering we're giving them a decent amount of money for two people. All in all, this is the *last* place I would come for a nice meal given the abhorrent service. For a special occasion in San Francisco, go to Alexander's, Acquerello, La Folie or Boulevard. The House is just awful from start to finish.

I was slightly underwhelmed by my experience here. Maybe it was bc of the courses I chose or that I caught them on a busy day? What I ordered: the sea bass (this was the real winner and had a perfect crispy coating with lots of tender meat inside *swoons), shrimp with mushroom risotto (too heavy and was very tiring after a while. Shrimp was also a bit too salty), passion fruit creme brulee (delicious, but several parts of it were burnt :/ ), crispy salmon rolls (good but the dipping sauce's main component was Wasabi..interesting) Overall: for the price (about 35.00 per person) I expected more attention to detail on the food.

Pretty good Asian fusion. At first I was unimpressed by the menu by decided to give it a try. Had the Kobe skirt steak, pretty good especially for a skirt steak. My wife had the halibut and said it was delicious. Not exactly the Chinatown experience but good Asian fusion.

This place didn't blow me away with invented flavors or seriously yummy entrees. We had the salmon egg rolls, pork chop in Thai sauce, and noodles With skirt steak. As foodies, me and my husband felt that we could have made these at home (we live in LA-OC). I didn't really get their concept and the wait was way to long

The House has top notch Asian Fusion. Best salmon I've ever had. Incredibly savory beef house noodles with steak cooked to perfection. The food was balanced and tasty. Nice romantic ambiance and location in North Beach. I recommend trying to make reservations to avoid a long wait. It can get pretty loud and crowded, but is worth it for the amazing food!

Short Story: Fantastic restaurant, well worth the price! Long Story: We came here on a Saturday evening with a reservation. We were promptly greeted at the door and seated. We ordered the tempura appetizer, house special Korean beef, and pork. All dishes were fantastic and well worth the price. The place is pretty small so reservations go out fast! Also, the service here is top notch (given what you pay for) and the ambiance and decor is relaxing. However, the place is always buzzing with noise and energy (in a good way) due to it's small size. Verdict: I'll definitely be back!

I showed up, by myself, without making a reservation, and they were happy to seat me despite being fairly busy. The food was really delicious and the service was good.

Good but not particularly great Asian Fusion. Place is tiny! Even with a reservation it still took about 30 minutes to sit, but it's Friday in SF so no biggie. Service had an issue with capturing the one of our appetizers checkup that my +1 and I ordered (we ordered Dumplings, we got Tempura delivered). Fine, mistakes happen. We ask the server to come over and noted that we didn't order Tempura, we ordered Dumplings (uh I've never ordered or ever thought about ordering Tempura in my life, and they don't sound remotely the same but to be fair the place is small and sound carries so maybe that contributed). The server does a horrible job in handling the situation. She gives us a stare and look as if I know what I heard, I heard Tempura there's no way I made a mistake. She didn't do the right service call to offer to correct (I understand that the server may be charged for the missed order capture, but I always pay in back in tip). But the quiet stare & attitude of 'so what do you expect me to do?' left me unimpressed with their lack of basic service-oriented training. I was celebrating something with my +1 that night and didn't want a stink to insist taking the dish back, so my +1 and I looked at each other and decided let it go and take the dish (the server is clearly stubborn and not getting it). I've worked with the restaurant industry in NYC, Philly and DC for over 15 years, color me unimpressed. We noted to the Floor Manager at the end of the meal of the situation, for service correction later. Manager noted that she understood the possible server's rationale (usually meticulous with the ordering process) but not the result of how it was handled. Other than that, the meal we enjoyed. Nothing great but nice dishes, taste and presentation. Too many other places in town for a service snafu on that level. Food didn't overcome that service miss, not really an OMG on the food.
