I was told this place has one of the ten best burgers in town. While the bacon was a little too crisp, the medium rare ground beef was done perfectly. Served with decent fries, it is not a bad SF type deal for $14. Fast and friendly service, and so darn busy for a Monday night. Kudos for making dining acceptable for singles as well. Several well dressed ladies sat at the bar with us and enjoyed dinner on their way home. That is a testament to their friendly and attentive ways.

Had dinner in this very busy buzzy restaurant, well worth the short trip away from the more touristy areas. They have a short menu but we enjoyed everything we had- all were full of flavour. Staff were great, friendly and attentive and always on the go. We had booked and this would be recommended as there were people queuing for a table all the time we were there, which speaks for itself

We had to book an early table for dinner but we are glad we did. Food is "new American" and it was good. Tried the crispy brussel sprouts leaves - sounded weird but it was really tasty. Also had the burger, which is the essence of what I love about the USA, and it was delicious. This place has a really extensive wine list and there is something for everyone's taste. Not a place for cocktails - it's not that sort of scene.

Marlowe offers outstanding American fare in an industrial looking space. It's not large, but they know how to squeeze the most out of it and still make it comfortable. Every dish I had was excellent. Of all the restaurants I was at during the four days I was in San Francisco, this one is the best!

This is a friendly restaurant with a fantastic menu. The food is fresh and meticulously prepared. The wine list is well rounded and includes selections for any palate and price point. Host/owner Anna Weinberg continues to impress. Also try her other restaurant, Park Tavern
