They had a vegetarian tasting menu option by surprise when we thought we couldn’t have the normal one as they had loads of meat and fish in it. It was delicious!!! Probably the best food in San Francisco. Good ambiance in a really cool location....More

The restaurant positions itself as gastronomic experience, but something goes wrong: 1. No light. It is so dark here, that it's difficult to see what you eat. Strange if you focus on food. 2. Taste. Cuisine is inventive but sometimes ingredients do not work together...More

Menu was innovative, portions small and precious (wonderful presentation), you might leave hungry. Wine list was big enough to find something in your price point. The service was attentive but not overly so. The restaurant is not large, it has a cozy feel, but in...More

On May 01, we dined at Commonwealth for the first time. It had been on our radar screen for some time, but we just never seemed to be able to fit it in. Finally, we made that happen. OK, the restaurant is located in a...More

For value, try the 7 course tasting menu rather than the a la carte menu. For $85, we received an amuse bouche, 5 savory, and 2 sweet dishes. From the first savory dish (smoked trout) to the last one (lamb shoulder), they were all very...More

Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the
foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural
attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous
street murals and a high density of bars and cafes
make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people.
While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its
top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the
city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the

The restaurant is small and won't hold a party of 100 but contact them directly to see if they have a recommendation for a facility that will hold your group. Happy hunting. CynthiaBrian
