This restaurant deserves its props. This was by far the best dining experience I've had in a long time. I had the Cesar salad and chicken Parmesan. My boyfriend had the steak which I nibbled on. It was amazing. My favorite was the Cesar salad....More

Found this gem on a night out- quiet bar that served great food until 1am- would highly recommend their Mac and cheese. Bar staff were really friendly, knowledgeable and easy to chat to

I had dinner there with my two girlfriends and we really enjoyed all our meals. We especially liked the deviled egg appetizer. I had the beet salad along with the lobster bisque. Yummy! Highly recommend.

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

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
