I was not a huge fan of the table that we were given. I made this reservation MONTHS ago but were given a small table by a door - so there was a lot of traffic going past us.

Excellent dining experience. Excellent food, ambiance and service make this a special place before the opera or symphony. A great place for a date or special occasion.

The restaurant was fine. I probably wouldn’t go back. The food was very good. The service was fine. The ambiance was like a bar.

Absinthe was good, but there was nothing special about the meal. My potato encrusted salmon was creative, but bland in flavor and nothing to write home about. My girlfriend’s pasta dish was tasty but lacked luster. Not what one would expect from a popular San Francisco restaurant. Drinks were excellent and the service overall was spotty. Can’t say that I was really all that impressed with this restaurant as a place I would go out of my way to get back to.

Have not been here in 3 years( world travels part 1 of 3?)!
Used to come here late night after SF JAZZ,
Always had 5 star experience!
This evening was kind of Luke warm- the Absinthe Burger failed to inspire! Yes- it’s made with shoulder”chuck” and brisket meat... failed to inspire also because it. Ones bare bones @ 20.00 so to add tomatoes and cheese is now a 24.00 burger( not an issue if it DELICIOUS....it was not delicious sadly....)
We also had French Onion soup- Superb, Shaved Brussel Sprout salad- Yummy but a bit over priced!!
Wait staff= Excellent!!
Busers = Excellent!!
Clientele... a bit oldish!!!
Probably not coming back... reason= Hayes Valley neighborhood has way more Exciting Restaurants nowadays!!!

My husband and I went to Absinthe for Sunday brunch. It's a lovely restaurant on Hayes Street. They had a new item on the menu called BLT Benedict. We both ordered it and it was so delicious and different than your normal Eggs Benedict. Instead of an english muffin it had an onion ring and an heirloom tomato topped with the poached egg and hollandaise sauce on a bed of arugula surrounded by bacon bits. Very creative and great presentation. The service was excellent!

We ate here with old friends and were tucked into the corner window table which felt super intimate so we could catch up, yet still see outside and enjoy people watching. The cocktails are innovative and delicious and we enjoyed some of the best salmon I have ever eaten. Highly recommend, but it is a bet spendy.

The salmon and the trout were stupendous. Try some of the absinth-based cocktails, such as the death in the afternoon, it’s magnificent. Waiter service was scattered, could have used more check-ins throughout the meal. Overall, Absinthe keeps being one of the best classic restaurants in San Francisco.

This was a perfect place before the theater and the food was perfect. The drinks I would recommend. Delicious. The wait staff was professional and accommodating for getting us to our show. Everything we ate was scrumptious.

I

I'd made OpenTable reservations and asked for a center booth, also mentioning that it was a birthday dinner.
Nobody knew any of these details accept that we had made a reservation for 7:00 PM.

t is a beautiful restaurant. Service was very, very good. However, the food needs some help, I think.

We had a market salad that consisted of big pieces of acorn squash, roasted, skin left on and cut up into too large chunks spread across a very large, long plate. While I know the skin is inedible, this large amount, in an otherwise nice salad, was a bit too much to really enjoy.

We asked for bread-- it was a whole grain type and was dry and chewy, served without olive oil or butter.

I ordered the potato encrusted salmon. It was delicious, but it was a very tiny piece counterbalanced with a huge pile of salad greens on the other end of the plate. Not very well thought out.

Our dessert, warm gingerbread with caramelized pumpkin was delicious-- but the odd ice cream or sorbet served ont eh side was watery and flavorless. Actually awful.

Our waitress was fantastic.

Until the food finds its center of gravity, it will be a while before we go back.

This was our second pre-SF Jazz dinner at Absinthe. We shared the shaved Brussels sprouts salad and a bottle of Beaujolais. I had the fungi pasta. Everything was excellent. A great location for pre-show fare.

Overall, I love this place! The waitress was attentive, energetic and seemed to love her job.

The food was classic French with some good variations, as well. All well done.

The drinks are fun and they had some options I hadn't had before. I always love some infused spirit based options.

The only draw back was how hot it was...

The itself was OK but the portions were extremely small. The same was true for the glass of red wine that I ordered. Wine itself was OK but the "pour" was tiny. Disappointing.
The service was good. I would be reticent to recommend this place to a friend.

No joke, a mouse ran thru the dining room. That was a bit traumatic but the service and the restaurant is always good and i am sure it was just a rare and unfortunate occurrence.

Absinthe has stagnated. Very uninteresting menu. It might have been because it was a Monday night. It’s also quite pricey. Tables so close, it’s hard to feel any sense of privacy. Service was very good, however.

We were not impressed with the Coq Au Vin. It was overly sweet and also gamey (pretty sure we encountered liver at one point). We have had MANY coq Au Vin preparations, and this was in the bottom third based on taste. The Caesar and soupe à l’oignon were perfect.

As always, we had an excellent meal at Absinthe that we thoroughly enjoyed. We are always impressed by the highly professional service. The restaurant can be noisy because it is popular and often crowded, but we lucked out and got a quiet table this time -- last time as well! -- and that always makes for a more pleasant dining experience.
