Wow, Blue Plate keeps getting better. We've eaten here for the last 15 years and it never gets boring. The seasonal menu always features great local produce selections and dazzling entrees. It's a warm and inviting atmosphere that's truly SF Mission style.

Thanks for the years of dining with us, Josh. And thank you for taking the time to give us a shout out. I'm glad we are still keeping it interesting. Jeff

It's been a while since the last time I stopped by Blue Plate, but I remember well how much I enjoyed the duck liver mousse and the goat mac & cheese. Note that tables are close to one another and noise level is fairly high, so you may want to come here with a group of friends rather than for a date night.

Thanks for the review, Andrea. it's true the weekends can get a little busy but for your next date night try sitting in the back on a weeknight for the same vibes and a little more quiet.

I take my daughter to the Blue Plate each time I visit her in San Francisco. The food is marvelous (the Farro is a favorite of mine), the atmosphere is warm and comfortable and the service is consistently perfect. (Megan was our waitress last night and she made our dining experience delightful.) I travel the world and I consider the Blue Plate to be a special find which I recommend over any other San Francisco restaurant.

Thank you for your kind words, Susan. I am so glad you found us...and Meghan is great, isn't she? Jeff Trenam owner

Really impressed with this place. Went with a group of 7 and every single dish we tried was fantastic. Their bread is a buttery dream come true. The service was friendly and fun and very helpful. Highly recommend.

Delicious food, farro & slow egg in particular! Service was slow though helpful at the table. The lack of foyer make for a bit of a hectic entrance. When we arrived our table wasn't ready and the hostess quickly mentioned a bar down the street to grab pre-dinner drinks...too quickly, as if they have this issue often. We didn't get sat until 40 min after our reservation.

We dined at a beautiful garden at the back; great food and service. The kale salad will bring us back again and again.
Response from the owner - 3 months ago
Thank you, Tomer. The pecorino vinaigrette is really great on that kale salad. Chef Sean kills it. And I always like to hear about people enjoying their time in the garden. Hope to see you again soon. Jeff

One of if not my favorite restaurant in SF. Unpretentious comfort food by local owners every dish is packed with flavor. We have tried so many upscale restaurants throughout the city and NYC and we always end up saying "it's not as good as Blue Plate". Standouts are the Fried Chicken, Key Lime Pie, and Padron Peppers. Mac and cheese here is THE BEST. Wash it down with $2 Ole's. This food has big flavor so don't come here if you like bland....there is subtlety here but overall the flavors are good and strong. Just the way I like it!
