Came from Texas with a large group of people with a couple of hard to please Asian moms. We had a prefix menu and we walked out as happy as can be. It was a Texas size amount of food and every dish was well presented and well flavored. We couldn't be happier leaving San Francisco with a meal like this. Staff was super friendly and worked well together. Everything was on point. Kudos to the restaurant team from front to back.

Really nice atmosphere, great mimosa drink and lovely brunch menu. Informal but yet nicely serviced and, to some extent, chic.

Great place for a date! Open kitchen, slightly dim but not too dim lighting, nice wine list and impeccable service. I would give 5 stars for service. All the staff from the receptionist to server to manager were all extremely helpful and friendly. They also give you 5% off if you take an Uber to the restaurant instead of driving since it's really difficult to find a parking space around there. I thought that was really considerate of them. Although 5% isn't a lot but it's enough to incentivize you to not bring your car. As for the food - my favorites were the oysters (very garlicy garlic!), potato and eggs (has some sour cream and onion in the sauce, the dish gave me an orgasm in my mouth), soft shell crab (also a perfect combo of crunchiness and smoothness of the avocado), and the key lime pie was to die for. My only complaint about the place is that food isn't served efficiently. Between appetizer and small bites we had a wait of 15-20 min, and between small bites and entree was another 30-40. So by the time we got to the entree, we were already full since the food settled in my tummy already. But Some people do enjoy this, gives you time to chat between courses. I'm just someone who enjoys getting dish after dish, so it all depends on your preference.

Amazing beer selection. Delicious snacks and entrees. Wish we could've ordered more. Will definitely be going back.

First of all, the service is excellent, not only courteous but also friendly. From the hostess to the waiters. The place has a nice decor and is spacious. The food was well prepared, interesting and well presented. We loved that it was great for sharing, specially the "snacks" that are sor of appetizers. An over all very good experience, and I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Finally trying out the new kid on the block, after hearing rave reviews from some close friends - in fact, one of them had just mentioned Stones Throw to me during lunch, so along I came, wanting to treat my mom to a nice dinner before her flight home. Rather than getting full off of entrees, we focused a bit more on appetizers instead, ordering their: * Squid Ink Conchiglie Pasta - Faaaaantastic dish, and easily our favorite part of the meal. With every bite you get massive in-your-face flavor goodness, which gets stronger the closer you get to the bottom of the bowl. If you don't make a point of stirring every now and then, it actually becomes a little too overwhelming, so, be sure to do so. The best way to describe the flavors of this dish? Pasta in a seafood chowder. But fancier. * Pork Belly & Crispy Pig's Ear - I, admittedly, found my first two bites of this appetizer a bit boring and uninspired, until I made a point of eating the pork with a bit more sauce, and a bite of fruit, which suddenly made for this fantastic, balanced blend of contrasting flavors. As is often the case, all the ingredients are served together for a reason! * Crispy 38 North Duck Breast & Thigh - Not quite as tasty as our appetizers, especially given that we've had legit Beijing duck before, but, still enjoyable, albeit a bit salty. Could have definitely benefited from less heavy-handed saucing, or larger portions of the rice and pear. * Peanut Butter & Jelly Doughnuts - My reaction to this dessert started at wtf, and quickly shifted to resigned disappointment, as I wondered how we went from fantastic savory dishes to a lackluster dessert. To be fair, this platter of fluffy beignet doughnuts and fanciful condiments was not terrible, but, given the complexity and contrast of flavors in our previous dishes, the singularly sweet nature of this dessert fell disappointingly short. But, despite our dinner ending on such a low note, I still have to give Stones Throw a solid 4, if not almost 4.5 stars. One of the more notable dinners I've had recently, and one I can see myself treating myself or someone special to again, if not just for that pasta dish alone. ***Accessibility Info*** Venue - Disregarding the excessively steep and numerous hills in the immediate vicinity of Stones Throw, which you may have to traverse depending on where you ultimately find parking, the venue itself is perfectly accessible, with a large, open floor plan. Bathroom - Given how new Stones Throw is, it's not really a surprise that their restrooms were up to spec.

This place is a gem. Generous portions of high quality, pretty food. Squid ink pasta, beef duo and creme caramel were highlights. Expensive beer and wine list cleverly organized around helpful themes (like 'what you would expect this grape to taste like' and 'staff picks'). Cosy Russian Hill vibe.

Great cocktails and good beer selection. Menu is limited, but desserts (especially the jelly donuts) were amazing!
