    My family and I went to HoPR for my obligatory annual birthday meal. It's no secret HoPR is one of the best restaurants (IMHO so foodies and critics, don't hate me if you disagree) in the country if you're a meat lover so I won't bore you readers about a review of my meal. I will however like to compliment HoPR on the amazing staff. Our waiter was hands down the best waiter we've had - EVER. He was attentive, patient when family members were still unsure about what cut of prime rib or beverage to order, helped my 8 year old navigate what to order (it was my daughter's first time ordering her very own meal, albeit the kid's portion, knew when to come back to check on our table (some waiters/waitresses hover and some rarely check in on guests), and just hands down was a "pro amongst pros". This waiter should get a raise or every guest should give him double the recommended gratuity amount because he just made our experience at HoPR that much better. Kudos HoPR for hiring amazing staff!

    Recently I read a few mixed reviews but I can say the three of us loved it. It is really as close as you can get to REAL Italian food. I mean, really, who has Trippa on the menu. It was delicious and although it was an appetizer I could have had it as a main. Also loved the fave/ciccoria combo. Service was great although my Italian was mediocre. I recommend A16!

    One of the best meals I have had in San Francisco. No pictures because I tried to soak in the moment as much as possible. This is probably the best value of a tasting menu you can find the city. $75 per person and I left extremely full. So much protein and flavors. There were so many plates brought out to us I lost count. Chef Laura and her husband understand this middle eastern cuisine extremely well. Standout dishes were the lamb, the pita with dips, and the savory filo dough dish with mushroom sauce. They treated the local California produce with so much love and flavor. The lamb had a crunch from all the seasoning rub it had on it. 100000/10. The ambiance and decor is amazing too. Wild flower wall paper. Quiet but lively at the same time. All the wait staff was extremely knowledgeable, tentative, and accommodating. My partner described what kind of drink she likes and they brought her the perfect recommendation. Chef Laura was on the show top chef and even came out to bring a dish and talk with us. I was star struck. Her kindness is to be noted

    We ate there this weekend, our 3rd or 4th visit. We've only been for brunch, so that's where this review will focus. The outdoor option is perfect for taking our 87-year-old mother/mother-in-law (and our dog) to brunch. Sessions is not street facing, it overlooks a lovely park in the Presidio, but parking is easy and everything is very accessible for walkers, wheelchairs, etc. The setting is just lovely -- no traffic! The service is always lovely, too, and the food is delicious. Always delicious. The three of us ordered oysters, granola with fruit and Greek yogurt, a beet salad with quinoa and smoked yogurt, and scrambled eggs with biscuits. Everything was so fresh, so beautifully presented, and so tasty. Their coffee is also quite good. After our meal, we took a walk through the beautiful park, with a view of the GG Bridge, and sat and watched geese in a small lake there. We will surely be back for many more brunches in the future.

    First of all, our host was absoltutely amazing!! It was our 30th wedding anniversary and we were celebrating with a dear friend. He had us wait for just a few minutes and then showed us to our incredible table in a private little spot in the restaurant. We always have the yummy chili along with their wonderful comfort food bread, and a glass of wine. It just yummy as usual, and our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. It really doesn't get better than Greens if you want a great luncheon experience in a beautiful scenic part of SF.
