I've been to the grove off 3rd on previous visits and I quite enjoy it there although it gets quite busy. This one in the mission is less chaotic and quieter albeit smaller in size with no upstairs seating. It can get a bit chilly if you're sitting anywhere near the door, fortunately I wasn't. I like the veggie lasagne... More

Stumbled upon this place by accident and so glad I did! I wasnt sure what I wanted so just picked 2 random items that turned out to be DELICIOUS-vegetable lasagna and their signature French onion soup. Super good and authentic flavors. If I lived in San Francisco, I think I could eat those things on a regular basis! Give it... More

The food was very good and the staff very friendly. Would definitely come again. Open all day and convenient Civic Center/Hayes Valley location. Locally owned and operated a plus.

Offering a sizable menu, we decided on the French onion soup, turkey club, and chicken tortilla lime soup. The food was quickly brought to our table and tasted wonderful. The restaurant was clean, tidy and offered a variety of seating options.

Our family had a great time here. We started with perfect boysenberry pie, yummy coffee and perfect fresh squeezed OJ while we read our books awaiting the arrival of the rest of our family. When they arrived we ordered ranch eggs, avocado toast, steel cut oats and a breakfast burrito -which is not small. All were excellent and the atmosphere... More

We ordered the Cobb Salad to share and it was split in two and were nice size portions and a very well done Cobb salad. We also ordered the Cheese steak... More

I met my son for a quick dinner at The Grove before we headed across the street to the Norse Theater for a lecture (Equal Justice: Post Obama). Diners order at the counter and a server brings meals to the table when they are ready. I ordered a Cobb salad and my son, a vegetarian, ordered a pasta dish. The... More

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighbourhood Profile
Hayes Valley
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 community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
