"I had the banana leaf wrapped pork and a kale salad with fennel sausage."
"Definitely higher prices than what I would expect at a local neighborhood spot."

Food is good. Not incredible. But good. Portions too small. $128 spent for 3 person brunch. No alcohol. 2 kale salads and it was $16 EXTRA to add skirt steak. Like 4oz. Don't add skirt steak to your salad. I had the banana leaf wrapped pork and a kale salad with fennel sausage. Left kinda hungry. I don't play for NFL and weigh less than 200lbs. Nice views. Good ambience. But don't show up hungry expecting to "eat".

i was pretty underwhelmed by this place. i had Harvest Pasta- which had an ok, but undistinguished sauce and i had to look hard for the vegetables which were supposed to be in it. so basically-$28 for a big plate of pasta that was not at all special. heard the brussel sprouts were a delicious side, so tried them and they were over salted and kind of greasy. the wine list is ok for bottles, but very limited for by the glass choices. with only one glass of wine each, 2 pasta dishes (didn't taste my friends) and the brussel sprouts- it was $100.00 (including good tip, service was nice). this didn't include starters, coffee, dessert…. i think it was just a waste. there are places you can have a wonderful dinner for that.

We started out going for all you can eat pizza, then 1/2 price pizza, now...well I think the deals are over. Don't like the brunch. Service is always just ok. Great wine list and I would like to try the other options on the dinner menu. Definitely higher prices than what I would expect at a local neighborhood spot.

Best Brunch in the Bay. Smooth Hollandaise and the fluffiest pancakes.

Nice place to enjoy a great glass of wine in SOMA at a reasonable price. The wait staff seemed nervous and a little on the cold side. The spicy fries we had as a snack were great. The pizza was average.

I have been living near by for about three and a half years and I used to love this place. It really had a local feel and I knew the staff and they used to have all you can eat pizza Sunday dinner. I think more recently they have become a lot more successful so a lot of the promotions such as all you can eat pizza Sunday is gone, and the new management hadn't retained a lot of the older staff from a few years ago so I don't find myself going there much anymore. However, I shouldn't allow their success and my negative response to it influence my review on their food, which is still very good. I went there for brunch a few weeks ago and it was about a 3/5 for value and taste (a little expensive). I haven't had their pizzas in the past 12 months, but the last time I did, they were awesome. I'd say a 4/5 and about $20 for a large (feeds two). Get the Salciccia or the Local pizzas.
