    Excellent rolls and great Japanese beer, along with excellent service and pretty interior decor. Prices are fairly reasonable. The major drawback is that the sound is very loud when the place is full, largely because the interior is so highly reflective of sound. It was possible to ahve a conversation between 7:00 and 8:00, but just barely so. It was much nicer between 8:00 and 9:00 when the place started to empty out.

    Food is less than average, their red wine is excellent. Service is outstanding! Room seating layout and the stage as well as acoustics was great.

    From the moment you enter, the team takes care of you. We had the vegetarian tasting menu and it was truly the best experience we have had in a long time. Creative, surprising, and phenomenal flavors. Presented beautifully on custom made dishes by a truly professional service team. Not one course disappointed, and we were impressed with the innovative use of seasonal ingredients. Highly recommended.

    One of my favourite upscale restaurants near the opera and symphony hall. I like to celebrate birthdays and special occasions there The bar can be lively in the evening but the dining room is still relatively quiet. The restaurant is beautiful in a baroque style. The service is impeccable. For this visit my friend and I went for lunch during SF restaurant week. The special menu was disappointing and I did not feel it was a good value. I am lactose intolerant and onion soup w/cheese followed by a grilled cheese sandwich and then ice cream is not something that I can have. I asked if there were substitutions and there were not. We ordered off the regular lunch a menu and the good was beautifully prepared and presented. The bill also reflected the higher prices. I wish that the restaurant week menu had been more flexible or at least another option for the main

    Hayes Street Grill is a favorite spot for pre-show dining. The waitstaff is well attuned to curtain times and moves the dinner along at an appropriate pace. We arrived at 5:30, ate a leisurely 3-course meal, and left around 7:00. We had paella, salmon, and mushroom pasta. They were all delicious. And the desserts were light and fluffy. My only (minor) complaint is that the noise level is a little high to hear when the restaurant is full. A great meal!

Discover Hayes Valley

A hotbed for the tech set and buzzing eateries, Hayes Valley has quickly become one of the hottest dining destinations in the city. After the 1989 Loma Pieta earthquake destroyed the Central Freeway, it paved the way for the rise of the neighborhood. Today, it’s hard to walk more than a block before discovering another gem—whether it’s sushi, Scandinavian, modest Greek, or liquid nitrogen ice cream. It’s not all casual cuisine, however. Nestled amidst the dense deliciousness, you’ll find rustic French bistros and a champagne bar with an extensive caviar list. After exploring the eclectic flavors and charm of the Hayes Valley streets, we recommend heading to Patricia’s Green for a perfect desert of people watching and unwinding.
