Beautiful place, very close to Moscone Center. Had a business meal with some customers and food was good.
Great place to hangout with friends and Business meeting.
I will say that the atmosphere and aesthetic of the space was great. The service was horrible. Our drink order took 45 minutes and the second drink order was forgotten by the waiter and was never placed. The food was just ok, nothing stood out as memorable.
Ambiance is amazing, food was average in taste, value was not there. I’ve been to Michelin starred restaurants and have had a just as expensive or less expensive meal that tasted amazing. If the food tasted incredible that would be one thing but the pork that both my wife and I got tasted like a bratwurst, seemed a bit dry and most of it was fat so we got like 3-4 solid bites of meat.
Cocktails were good not great. Nothing was done to accommodate our anniversary dinner even so I mentioned it in the reservation.
Will I be going back? Probably not. Value isn’t there and food is nothing special. Also would have been nice to hear a “happy anniversary” or have some sort of acknowledgement.
I wouldn't recommend it if you're already hungry or thirsty walking into the restaurant, or you have limited time. Service was friendly but the kitchen and bar service took forever! Even when the restaurant and bar weren't packed. They must be encompassing of hotel room guest service otherwise one can't explain the wait and inconsistent timing of food and drinks to the table.
Menu is limited but with enough choices to satisfy most palates. However, it's written in an esoteric manner that made it hard for most to "get it" and may put off some, if reading it online. Dishes were all delicious, especially the roasted cauliflower, gnudi and halibut.
Unlike the food that did deliver inspite of the complex ingredient-based menu, the cocktails weren't up to par. Especially the bloody mary which was weak and timid with mushy olives (ewwwh!).
It is a shame as the clubby, intimate feel of the restaurant and bar would make this a great social spot for friends and clients. But with the long wait for food and drink, the "hangries" will quickly override any goodwill.
Food was wonderful. Everything that came out was wonderful and the staff were friendly and approachable. It was a little bit of a lighter meal in terms of portions, but I can't really complain with everything tasting so good :)
Good food, nice ambiance and terrible service! Highly disappointed with server.
Limited menu was the main drawback. Otherwise great service and quality of food.
Amazing food and amazing service!
Flawless. That says it all no mistakes here. Don’t miss the rooftop bar. This place is as good as it gets… Exceptional service… Exceptional food… Exceptional room… Exceptional everything
Came for Sunday lunch. Food was good. Free refills on non-alcoholic drinks. Only two beers on draft but both a good choice. Ambiance is nice and the wait staff friendly and accommodating. I would definitely come back for dinner.
The Rib eye and Halibut are exceptional! A little loud though! :(
LOVE LOVE LOVE the cocktails and DJ! Perfect way to start the evening with a drink in the lounge before dinner!
Good service and nice vibe
Gracious, elegant food, service and ambience. Lovely wine, and affordable options too!
The Commons Club lis ocated in the new Virgin Hotel . The Hotel was fabulous. The staff was excellent. The signature drinks, I would pass on and stick with your favorite classic. The steak was unfortunately overcooked. Seemed very high priced, so value for the meal was not there.
Nice place, very well decorated with a decent ambience, but what a stupid menu. I have eaten most cuisines in many fine restaurants all over the world, but hardly recognised anything on the menu. As an example, the ‘Fish & Chips’ was raw salmon with and apple cut into chips. WTF.
My friend and I ordered the Charred Caesar salad. Nothing about this salad was charred except the lemon. Very disappointing😕
Wayyy too loud for conversation.
Our halibut was overcooked and the "terrine" was tiny and hard. I didn't really understand what it was meant to be like at all. The halibut tasted like it had been sitting for 10 mins prior to being brought to our table (not hot, crust on fish a bit chewy rather than crispy). The duck confit agnolotti was flawless, however. A wine we had was very expensive yet nothing to write home about ($50 for two glasses). The strachiatella app was nice, so kind of a mixed bag. I wish I had sent the halibut back but didn't want to cause a fuss then regretted not having done so, especially for the price. If it had been cooked less and brought immediately, it would have been very good, so that's a shame. I know they are just new so still "ironing out the kinks."
Great food, drinks, and vibe. I really enjoyed my dinner here and would recommend it.
Good basic burger place
A little pricey but ambiance, food and service was great!
Leo was an incredible and caring server.
Food was pretty good! Menu was ok.
Service was unfortunately not knowledgeable about bar offerings and left us alone for very long stretches of time that we would have liked to order more food, drink or dessert.
Ambiance was overstated and didn’t feel very special.
Good food, excellent service, nice atmosphere. Parking was convenient as well.
girls nite out
We sat near a pillar small tables ave asked to move to a little larger area. It took awhile to get it approved! It’s new I get it... appetizers were good!
The rib eye steak was very thin and just average we expected more... the halibut was super thin slice and okay nothing spectacular for the price!
The deserts were really good - different but tasty!
Service was very slow but very nice sever and helpful. Food and ambience excellent.

Travel a lot and love eating out. I’m taking the time to write this review because this restaurant unfortunately did not meet my expectations. Started with seating. We were seated right beside the only other occupied table in the restaurant. The tables are extremely close to each other and it’s hard to have a conversation without feeling like the next table is part of it. Music is very loud and hard to have a conversation. The place does not have good acoustics. Oysters did not taste fresh and steak had no flavor. Restaurant wasn’t busy and my bill got switched with another table and my credit card got charged incorrectly. Extremely over priced due to the quality of the food and service provided. San Francisco is a big city with so many good restaurants I highly recommend to avoid this place if you looking for good food and good service.

Amazing! Got the Akaushi Ribeye and it was delicious, the steak was cooked perfectly and the potato puree was also really tasty. They gave us a complimentary Parker House Rolls and it was really good too. The servers are great and so is the hotel staff. They were all super helpful with a situation we had even though we weren't staying there. Would highly recommend!
