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.

The Puffed Potato & Egg are so amazing here! Break open the potato puff and the egg yokj oozes out in a perfect balance of flavors. The service was great and drinks are a bit overpriced.

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.

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!

I wanted to eat the entire menu!! Everything was fabulous about Stones Throw. From the service to the dessert. The duck pate with warm pretzel bites was heavenly. The fried potato puffs were fluffy clouds of deliciousness. The squid ink pasta had a nice bite to it. The duck entree was ok, but not mind blowing. I didn't taste the burger but my partner absolutely loved it. Especially with the loaded tator tots. One thing you can't do is miss the dessert!!!! Do yourself a favor and go here!! Just be prepared to have a hard time with parking. But use uber and get 5% off the bill!

A solid New American experience unless you don't eat pork. It seems they must get a whole pig in here, because there's pig parts on almost every single menu item. Otherwise, some fun twists on traditional American plates and an EXTENSIVE beer selection to boot. A little pricey, but nothing unordinary for the neighborhood. The best dish that night was the squid ink pasta appetizer.

The food was not bad but a bit pricy. But at the same time, you can't really expect value priced meal in the area anywhere. Service was great.
