The Kentucky "Moscow mule" drink was a winner and the snacks are fantastic. The bar scene is hoping and the service/ambience is 5 star. A do not miss for drinks with friends while in heart of SF.

We were wowed by our meals........The shrimp and grits, with bacon and a poached egg, and the country fried pork chop were true standouts. The service was professional and efficient, but without a trace of human warmth.

I used to live in this neighborhood in the 1990s and ate here very infrequently because the place never really wowed me.

I took some friends last night who were visiting from out of town (their first time in SF and my first time back in eight years) They were starving and there were were on Fillmore so we went in. I was hoping for the best.

So-so food. Service was pretty slipshod though they did make up for it by comping one of the items that was delivered absurdly late. To say they don't care about their customers would be unfair and not true, but they need to pick up their game.

Fillmore between Broadway and Geary is a wonderful street. I strongly recommend a stroll for tourists. Lots of good places to get a bite. Sadly, right now, this is not one of them.

We have been to this restaurant many times each time hoping the service would improve. Last night we went for the last time. We didn't order drinks as we were driving, once the waitress took the wine glasses off the table we never saw her again. Our starters were brought by someone else and the refills of ice tea was brought by Cassandra, the wonderful hostess, she is the best part of this restaurant. After waiting for almost an hour for our entrees we asked for our check and left.
If you aren't drinking don't bother.
