Ms. Kennedy at the upstairs bar is a gem of a bartender. Mac and cheese is the most consistent option. Cool setting but can be crowded at times.

Fried chicken is pretty awesome. I've gotten so used to the unbattered Korean fried chicken that I'm not used to the American style. Nevertheless, the chicken was juicy and the batter was very well seasoned. Get the deviled eggs as well - they're pretty awesome. We also got a side of the burrata whipped potatoes, which was a great complement to the chicken, but beware, it's on the heavier side.

I am a tremendous fan of Tyler I was hoping that his bragging about his fried chicken was legit. He can brag all he wants, the food was excellent. I also had the mac and cheese. The service is great, the waiters are very friendly and the place is charming. I sat at the chef table and watched how the meals are prepared. My overall experience was a 10. They also have an upstairs and outside seating. A little pricey so be prepared to spend your money. I liked it because it wasn't a tourist trap. Being from NYC, sometimes the celebrity restaurants are just that. If you are in the neighborhood or in San Francisco, I highly recommend it.

The food here is actually pretty good. Avoid lunch time if you can. Despite the high prices, it is always packed. But if you have a client meeting, this place will do the trick. Good food. Good service. yorkshire pudding.

I think it's funny when people tell me that this place has some of the best fried chicken. I've been here twice for the fried chicken and I've been extremely let down each time. I thought it was just a fluke the first time then on my second visit, I knew that people apparently didn't know what fried chicken was supposed to taste like. My complaint was that the chicken has absolutely no flavor. Almost like someone forgot to put salt anywhere near the chicken. Thoroughly disappointed. The cocktails; however, are to die for!

The atmosphere and service are amazing, the food was solid. Overall we had a great experience! We went here for dinner on a Friday night (good thing we had reservations) and the place was packed. We were shown to our table immediately and quickly greeted by our server (I wish I could remember his name because he was awesome). We started with some cocktails and were pleasantly surprised with all the drink options (solid beer and wine selection). Moving onto apps we had the deviled eggs and beef tartare (both were amazing). Our main dishes consisted of burgers and fried chicken; solid offerings, but not the greatest. Dessert was the deconstructed devil's food cake; definitely a winner. Highly recommend this place. I'll definitely go back when I'm in San Francisco again.

I am giving this a 4 mostly because of the Service and ambiance. This place felt like an old style pub, but had a very modern feel. The inside of the restaurant was absolutely beautiful and the Service was very professional. We ordered deviled eggs, steak tartar and shrimp cocktail for appetizers. The deviled eggs were delicate, balance and very tasty. The steak tartar had a great combination of acidity and seasoning. The shrimp were tough and overall bland. For entrees, I ordered the fried chicken and my family for burgers. We ordered each of the side dishes. The fried chicken had good seasoning, great crisp and was juicy; that being said, it was just pretty okay. The burgers looked great, but we're lacking seasoning. The side dishes were overall very good. The food overall was pretty good, but a tad expensive for the quality. The service was excellent and outweighed the quality of the food. Overall, I would recommend if you aren't price sensitive.
