Stones Throw has been a four-star restaurant the other times I've been there. The food is solid and once in a while they will switch up the dishes. I've been happy the other three times I've been here. However, this past time was a disappointment. The food was incredibly salty and the saltiness overpowered everything else. Perhaps it was an off night, but for close to $30 per entree, I expect the entree to have more flavor. It's still a great spot for dinner and drinks but I'm not looking forward to coming back anytime soon. Will probably visit Trestle instead..

Interesting, innovative and incredibly tasteful menu! Friendly staff and cool interior. The acoustics in the big room should however be improved, it was really loud and impossible to have a proper cross conversation on a table for six. Easy fix though!

I had a fabulous dinner here with a girlfriend on a Saturday night. We had a 5:30pm reservation (early bird special!) and we were seated immediately upon arrival. The server was attentive, immediately bringing water and asking for drink orders. We both ordered cocktails - me the Afternoon Delight, her the pimm's cup. Both cocktails were delicious. Mine had really heavy thyme on the nose but tasted light, refreshing, and bubbly. Later in the evening I switched to the Pineapple Express, which was even better. While I expected it might be too sweet with the pineapple base, it actually wasn't at all. It smelled really heavily of lavender but tasted super interesting with hints of vanilla in the after taste. I definitely liked it more than I expected to. We shared a bunch of food: -Puffed potato and egg: this might have been my favorite dish of the night. The combination was absolutely stunning. The eggs were perfectly cooked and runny on the inside, and the crispy chicken skin added good texture and taste without overpowering the delicateness of the egg, the way bacon might have. The scallions added some sharpness to the dish that balanced out the other flavors. All the textures and tastes worked really well together to make one kick ass dish. -Grilled octopus and okonomiyaki pancake: wow to this octopus. I have never had more tender octopus in my life. It was perfect. The pancake was good, though a bit overpowered in places. The bacon dashi was slightly crispy and really smoky, and while I enjoyed it, it definitely drowned out some of the other flavors in the pancake, like the egg and onion. The pancake itself was nicely crisped on top and served with three different types of pickles on the side. The first was a spicy turnip that had a solid kick to it. The second was mushrooms and earthiness that paired really nicely, and then the third was a standard vinegar pickled radish. I thought the first two were a nice addition of flavor, the third did nothing for me. On top of the pancake was some kind of creamy green sauce that I assumed to be an avocado puree. It didn't really add much to the dish, though the sliced radishes, which I don't usually like, were very mild and added a nice crunch to the overall dish. -Crispy-skinned striped bass: the fish itself was surprisingly unbuttery, tasting more citrusy and lemony. On its own I might not have enjoyed that but it paired nicely with the buttery flavors coming from the white bean/chorizo stew. The beans were cooked al dente and I liked them a lot, though I thought there was a bit too much chorizo cooked along with them. The fish was very crispy on top though I did find a bone or two as I was eating it. The shrimp-stuffed piquillo pepper on the side could have been its own amazing side dish, but it added really nicely to the fish with some spice. The artichokes and fennel rounded out the dish. -Duck breast: I asked for the duck breast without rice, as I don't eat rice, and the server and chef were nice enough to accommodate the request. It was served with peas and the "duck confit lettuce cups". The peas were crunchy, the duck was perfectly medium rare and super crispy and fatty on the skin side. The duck confit wrap was a fun way to show off the duck in another style and was super tender. I could have had this dish over and over again. Everything about it was delicious. The food, plus 3 drinks each, came out to about $85 each after tax and tip. Not too shabby for what was an incredibly delicious dinner. I can't wait to come back here.

We went to Stones Throw for a special event on Saturday and it did not disappoint! The servers were attentive and the food was delightful. I was pleasantly surprised that all the mains were under $30 which can be rare for a really nice restaurant in the city. I would definitely recommend this place!

This is one of the best new SF neighborhood restaurants. Great, creative food, fun atmosphere and the owners really take care of regulars. Nicely done. There Monday charity dinners are also very special.
