As usual, a really great experience. The staff is fantastic, never have to ask for anything. Food is always great (really recommend the chicken). The atmosphere is truly SF, all kinds of people and casual. Gotta have those fries!!

Do what everyone says and get that chicken! It is arguably the best chicken I've ever had in my life. PLENTY of food for two, so save your appetite!

Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
