Great experience. Check it out if you have time.
We were in the outdoor patio and the air conditioning was on the entire time. The ambient noise level made it hard to talk. It needs to be recognized that it was the hottest day of the year. That said, Lauren was attentive and very pleasant. The food was great. We also love the ambiance.
Great place in the vast restaurant wasteland near Salesforce Tower.
The cool decor what attracted my daughter to this restaurant. She also saw the Michelin rating and asked to try it. Pleasantly surprised how good the food was. Bummed that I forgot to check in to yelp and get our free dessert.
Definitely will come back and bringing hubby for the delicious food, great vibe and decor.
Great food, staff worked as a team to deliver great service
Made a reservation and they closed, didn’t even call to let us know. Terrible customer service.
My current go-to spot to meet up with friends that are visiting town. Great ambiance, food and service. Noise level is ok to have conversations. A pretty unique spot!
Excellent food. Simple salad turns into an extraordinary art.
We were greeted promptly, and seated by the window. I like their lunch menu because it offers lots of choices I had the salad nicoise, which was delicious and my coworker had a burger which he enjoyed. The location is convenient for lunch or after work events.
Per Diem was on track to receive a fair recommendation after the meal, but 45 minutes after my party and I arrived for a lunch reservation, they started aggressively clearly half eaten meals and taking napkins and water glasses and didn't bother asking about coffee and/or dessert and pushed the check. After that, service staff hovered aggressively for about 2 minutes and then indelicately asked us to move to another table to accommodate another reservation.
We were there for a work lunch which required a short close out (which did not happen) and had a confirmed reservation for the meal. It was hostile and took away from any strong points that could've been mentioned. Do not book at Per Diem if you are considering a working lunch.
Delightful meal and fast service. Definitely recommend
Cool place, not enough people dining there
Thanks for the hostess who was very accommodating to our change in reservation during a busy shift. Tuna sandwich is perfection. Fresh salads soups and other dishes were amazing. Definitely recommend and will return to this place
Wonderful place to meet a friend or business acquaintances.
I was a little concerned that the portions would be small as the toast appetizer (was terrific) but i almost ordered another one for us. When the tri-tip sandwich came, it was enough to feed two people! DELISH!! definitely going back for more!
Great service! Thank you!
Selection for vegetarian options wasn’t as good as previous menu options.
The chef did accommodate special request.
The beverages made were not consistent, this wasn’t mentioned to the wait staff to address, the service was good.
Soggy salad. Very loud.
Fabulous choice close to both Bart and Caltrain stations. Food, service, ambience all exquisite. Checks served in a beautiful antique book!
Introduced my son and daughter-in-law to Per Diem and it was a hit! It is a favorite of the family now!
Quaint, great character and service as well as a varied menu selection with tasty small plates and entrees.
I live 50 min outside of the city, and received a call 15 min prior to my reservation that the reservation was canceled due to a pipe in the Kitchen. I did not recieve any type of apology or I incentive to give the restuarant another try. No respect for my time as a customer!
Nice presentation, plain flavor I think they could do it better.
This establishment was fun and lively. The food was delicious and the service was kind and attentive. The craft drinks were wonderfully prepared. I would recommend anyone visit this place.
The service was friendly and relaxed and just the right amount of attentive. The food was excellent and they accommodated my dairy free request easily. The cocktail I had was deliciously well balanced. I would definitely go there again when I’m in the mood to drop $80 on a tasty meal with friends.
The food was good, and service was mostly good, except for inattention to certain details, like the fact we had run out of water awhile ago (we finally had to ask for more) and that I needed a knife for my chicken. I would return, and recommend Per Diem.
Service is SLOOOWWWW
I was disappointed with the food. I ordered the mussels and french fries. Mussels we're tiny, chewie and the broth was very salty. My companion had the salad nicois and said it was bland.
Great music playing in the background (not too loud) with a cozy setting, perfect for dinner conversation.
I LOVED THIS PLACE! Wonderful ambiance and the food was just scrumptious! 10/10 would eat there again!
Just relaxing Saturday with mussels
I went with a group of seven and we could talk comfortably! The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. The ambience is very intimate and relaxing. Overall a great experience. I definitely recommend Per Diem.
Lovely bar and dining room. Food is basic offerings but done well. My dietary restrictions demanded I delete fingerling potato’s from my nicoise, and the staff gladly made a substitution. Little touches like that count.
Great place for a business lunch or a nice lunch with friends/colleagues.
Love Per Diem! Unique, charming, excellent food and service.
Food arrived cold and bar tab that was transferred was not our tab, although corrected, the overall experience was not good, would not go back to this restaurant again
Unfriendly service. Kitchen shut early no desserts and even refused another glass of wine. Despite arriving at 845 we were told kitchen shuts at 9 not visible on the site.
The service was probably the best in SF. So nice!! Paid attention to us. I had avocado toast that was the best I ever had. I also had chicken breast. It was delicious. Everyone I was with loves the food. Can’t wait to go back!!
Cocktails were great! Our main courses were a little overdone, but the appetizers (avocado toast and burrata toast) were amazing!
Great spot on the patio!
Outstanding atmosphere, great food, excellent service. Good find very convenient to Finance district, Palace hotel. Hard to find, poor sign but worth it. Needs more wine choices.
