We had a great time. Service was on point and they never rushed us out. Our group was there for 3 hours. We enjoyed beer, a recommended bottle of wine, and their food. Had a very enjoyable night catching up with friends with friendly service.

I chose this experience as a special dinner for me and my teen son and before he leaves for school abroad. I am so glad we did because it was an experience that we will remember. The flavors were unique and the server was able to explain the preparation to us. The egg hoppers were fantastic as we expected since this is a specialty. My favorite side dish was the okra. I have had okra in both Texas and West Africa and this preparation was the best I have ever had. The salmon melted in our mouths. The daal was so rich with curry and yet enhanced with so many subtle tastes. When we returned home he told his brother all about the meal- so I know it will be a night he remembers in some small way. Thanks 1601 and Chef Fernando!

Quiet place, just right for an informal dinner. Two very tasty - and slightly unusual - curries, with three inventive sides and a bottle of wine, were just right for the three of us.

If food and service are always great here. This is one of our favorite restaurants in San Francisco. Whenever we have out-of-town guests, we always take them here.

We love:
- Uni ice cream with caviar
- Egg hopper
- Kale salad
- Maldive fish broth
- Chicken curry
- Lamb curry

The menu changes quite often and the wine list is great and very reasonably priced.

This place is a wonderful treat. Sri Lankan California style.

App: MUST MUST have egg hoppers, Don't share! could have had even more. It's a perfect egg in a crisp wrap with delicious spices.... unlike anything else... wow.

Entres: There are grilled varieties on skewers and curry in bowls. We decided to go with the curries [ though the folks next to us seemed to loved the grilled..].
First, Dahl, just perfect over rice -
Second Lamb stew, couldn't be better.

Vegg: Fried asparagus.... wonderful.. if we had room we'd have also had potato.

We had it all with a crisp reisling..

Service was friendly and warm

We will definitely go again.

Excellent knowledgeable service. Interesting food; not same as southern Indian food as I expected. Subtle flavors. My only complaint is that the wine is overpriced: $18 per glass for Sancerre and $14/glass for dry riesling is ridiculous.

The food was amazing and the service, outstanding. However, the bar stool seats are NOT comfortable and the shared table is great if you are with a big crowd, but annoying if you have a small group and want to talk.
We got lucky by getting there very early, so when the noisy drunk people showed up we were about ready to go anyway.
But the acoustics are terrible and if you don't want to shout all night, you might want to go somewhere else. Which is a shame, because the food was to die for, seriously.

The ultimate foodie restaurant, tucked away in an unassuming neighborhood, 1601 is a culinary oasis. But when you open the door and step in you get to experience an amazing array of flavors in an elegant setting. 1601 is foodie heaven, every dish perfectly spiced, an elegantly plated so don’t wimp out, drop the $100 and do the multi course tasting menu and a 3 hour slow food experience. Whatever chef Brian Fernando serves you will be unique and you won’t taste it anywhere else, not at French Laundry, not at Crenn, not anywhere. One warning—don’t go here expecting to get Sri Lankan cuisine. It is a take, an interpretation, and in my mind shares more with California and French cuisine that anything you’ll get in Colombo.

A most memorable dining experience and our favorite in the dining mecca that is San Francisco. We sampled every small plate on the menu and were delighted with every bite. The attentive service, savory/spicy flavor profile and calm atmosphere made for a terrific evening out. Highly recommend this very interesting dining experience!

1601 Bar & Kitchen is a terrific restaurant that combines delicious Sri Lankan food, with lovely ambiance, and fantastic service. The food features unique flavors and spices that are fun to taste. We had theater tickets, and out waiter was kind enough to remind us about the time so that we didn't miss our curtain (we were enjoying the meal so much we had lost track of time). Additionally, the price of our meal was incredibly reasonable for the quality of the food.

Food was fantastic. Service very friendly. Nice atmosphere and not too loud to carry on a conversation. We had the lobster bisque, which was rich, spicy, and flavorful. Yukon gold potatoes were sweet and crispy and the ground lamb curry with chickpeas and cumin yoghurt also had pomegranate, which added texture a flavor for a really special dish. Strongly recommend.

We weren’t up for the tasting menu and the small plates menu is a bit limited. We had the salmon, lobster bisque, ribs, kale salad and lamb curry, followed by persimmons for dessert. With the exception of the ribs, which were good, everything was fantastic and unusual. Really special food, excellent service and artwork I would happily hang in my house.

Our third time there, but it's always charming! Amazingly professional, top-notch presentation, the salmon terrine with roe, and the potatoes being notably outstanding. Fresh, perfectly cooked food every time. The quiet atmosphere lends to an elegant evening out; perfect for that special dinner out. Highly recommend.

It was our first experience eating Sri Lankan cuisine (or a contemporary version of it). We enjoyed the originality, freshness and unique combinations of flavors. The Chef came to our table a number of times, and explained the origin of each dish. The service was courteous and professional. Our sincere appreciation for a lovely evening.

Incredibly delicious, thoughtful dishes--each one featured its own distinct flavor. With four people in our party, we were able to try a nice sampling of dishes (we opted for the a la carte menu, not the chef's tasting). There was not one dish that we felt we could do without. The Hopper Jidori Egg was as delicious as it was unique; two other favorites were the blue lake beans and the roasted potatoes. These sound like basic dishes but they are everything but basic. Be sure not to miss the divine Ceylon Tea Semifreddo for dessert.
