Description: At Sauce: Gough we serve what we like to call "Social Cuisine" - American comfort fare so good you'll want everyone at the table to try a bite. It's shared food without the tiny plates. Come sample Chef Ben's creations along with some drinks in the intimate Supper Club; cozy up to the beautiful redwood bar for a signature cocktail; or, enjoy a meal in the bustling main dining room. Experience what happens when Comfort Food meets California Cuisine — it could be our Tomato Bisque with white truffle grilled cheese sticks; Portobello mushroom fries; or our signature applewood-smoked-bacon wrapped meatloaf, something is sure to tickle your fancy. Located just a few blocks from the civic center in Hayes Valley, Sauce: Gough is the welcoming result of three partners' desire to create a comfortable spot for drinking and dining. Pre-Show, post-show and for all your private events Sauce is the place. Stop by for dinner any night between 5pm and Midnight and see for yourself; what’s cooking

I enjoyed the poutin and lobster roll served by Matt. To start, we had the bourbon smash gran ma and dark and stormy. My husband had the tomato bisque with truffle bread and Brussel sprout salad. The former being better than the salad. It was the perfect place to start our San Fran adventure.

We really enjoyed our dinner here with business friends and family. We had a round of appetizers like Ham Hock Tater Tots, Bacon and Eggs, and Mushroom Fries. Everyone loved them.

I had the Salmon and my wife had the Hangar Steak; they were both excellent and well prepared.

Our only complaint was that we were all swollen from all the salt. They could have cut it in half and the meal would have been just as enjoyable.

Overall a cool menu with great food and drink..........just ease up on the salt.

Sauce consistently produces good to very good American comfort food. They are conveniently located a short walk from symphony hall and the opera and so are great for pre-theater dining. Most recently we tried the sausage bread appetizer which was sinful and tasty and their new chicken entree which is a fried chicken parmesan served with several spears of asparagus and buttered tagliatelle. Their grilled shrimp entree is also good as is the Brussels sprouts salad. Portions are nicely sized to generous.

Dining room is fine, but entryway where the bar is looks a little tired with a worn carpet.

Ate at Sauce before City Arts lecture. The food was absolutely wonderful...we hated to rush last course to arrive on time for program. Will definitely go back...soon!
