A really good meal. Nice sharing plates. Be prepared for very close seating. We were able to move so that was good, but it was almost like their were communal tables although they were 2 tables close together. They were absolute pros with service and the food was really good.
My husband and I had a friend visiting from the east coast and we wanted to take her to a place known for cocktails and great food. She is definitely a foodie so we knew this would be up her ally. We ordered 7 different dishes and 3 desserts. Everything was delicious but our favorites were definitely the sturgeon caviar, the artichoke-anchovy spread and the ceviche. Service was phenomenal, everyone was very attentive and you never felt rushed. Although this place is more upscale than our usual dining, it doesn’t have as pretentious of a vibe as other places. We would definitely go back!
The Duck was melt in your mouth and smoky good. The squid sauce noodle-unique and delicious. Skip the Crudo-loaded with melons and way to dainty! Great service and great cocktails.
Delicate and sumptuous. Vibrant setting with great service.
Loved the boquerones and the sturgeon caviar. Buttery sweet oysters and delicious halibut. Please don’t miss the martini. Cheers and buen provecho!
We had an amazing meal at The Progress! We had tickets to a show next door for 8 pm and they were very accommodating of our time, while also providing exceptional service and incredible food. Definitely will be back to try other things on the menu in the future!
As usual, the food was amazing, and the atmosphere was fun! Unfortunately, our service was poor to say the least. The waiter acted as if he was rushing us out the door from the very beginning of the meal all the way to the end of the meal. Everything was rushed, even after we asked for him to slow things down a bit. If I get him again as a server, I will ask for a different server.
One of the best restaurants in San Francisco. Creative menu, beautifully presented, delicious.
Our meal at The Progress was the standout meal of our most recent visit to San Francisco. The atmosphere was upbeat. The service was top notch and the food was out of this world. We went with some of the waiter's recommendations and we were not disappointed. Our favorite was the BBQ duck- outstanding flavor and presentation. The house made ravioli and artichoke starter were close seconds. We will definitely return!
Came to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and I was very pleasantly surprised with EVERYTHING. Food was great (only qualm was that the ribeye was a bit dry for my taste, but my bf didn't mind - he loved it). There was one server that seemed like he was having a bad day, but a different server helped us out for the second half of our meal and he was incredibly kind and patient.
They fulfilled my request to have Happy Birthday printed on the menus :) unfortunately, they forgot to give it to us at the beginning of our meal haha, but they gave it to us at the end as a keepsake, which I appreciated. They also put a candle in our dessert, which I didn't ask for but I loved it!
Thanks to The Progress for such a memorable meal and experience.
Superb! The food and drinks were exquisite and the service excellent! We will be back.
One of the best restaurant experiences ever. Food was beyond amazing, service was unparalleled. If you’re in San Francisco, do yourself a favor and go to The Progress. Will not disappoint.
The Progress was incredible! Every dish felt even better than the last. We loved all the unique flavor combinations and options for different sized dishes to share. My favorite dishes were probably the wax beans with asian pear and almonds and the squid ink noodles. Delicious! can't wait to come back and try more of the menu!
I stated that this was going to be my wifes birthday and requested for a cake on my reservation. But the server didnt say a word plus she forgot my drink i had to remind her.
The couple who sat next to us had a birthday as well and icecream with a candle was served. Again we didnt get any.
We felt so so so humiliated and disappointed. Thr food was great no doubt about it but ill never come back we dont deserve this kind of service.
Amazing cocktails and delicious food! Save room for dessert, you will not regret it.
Very fresh and fine food, and delicately prepared. Highly recommended for Foodies ‘ pellet
Loved the warmth of this place and the fact that all plates can be shared which I did with my friend. Two of my favorite small plates were the ceviche of local halibut, piel de sapo melon & shaved chiles,cucumber-coriander broth and the anchovy tempura. Highly recommend the rib-eye steak which was done just right. The local king salmon, sungold tomatoes, basil & eggplant was a great combination and salmon was buttery. The fig & coconut upside down cake, lilikoi cloud cream, pinenuts & strawberries was to die for. Also, do get the shot of state bird peanut milk muscovado syrup, it finishes off this meal really well. This place is a must if you want an amazing foodie experience in San Francisco.
such a gem!
From entering the front door, to leaving....it was a beautifully choreographed dance. A perfect birthday celebration.
It's a great atmosphere but tables are too close. The menu was a bit confusing and lack of choices in a good way. It's a massive portion (standard American), so I would recommend to go with a large group otherwise you will waste the food.
We had an amazing time but our neighbor wouldn't stop talking about himself and tech. What a nightmare! He was super narcissistic and VERY loud, everyone could hear him. It was unpleasant and I felt very bad for his therapist/date/assistant.
Great wine list, interesting cocktails.
Fantastic lamb but too much noise.. Too much people...
A good aperitif
Our experience at the Progress was, in a word, underwhelming.
Our server was not that great. The only thing I d complain
Food was delicious and beautiful. Great ambiance. Loved it.
Every time we dine at The Progress, service is wonderful and the food is delicious.
Amazing Restaurant. Awesome foods, great tastes! The staff os really kind and polite. Great decor. We highly recommend It.
Beautiful bright space. Incredibly attentive service. Exquisite, elevated menu. Elevated eating at a fantastic value.
Easily my new favorite restaurant in San Francisco
The sharing concept was great for our party of 4. The starters, salads and vegetable dishes, were delicious. The platters of duck and pork chop were very generous in size.
Service was excellent.
Wonderful food, excellent service. So glad we found this great restaurant.
One of the best meals I've had in SF. The rabbit was delicious. The squid ink pasta so yummy. The table was spacious and comfortable and the service was attentive but also gave us our space. Excellent evening all around.
The Progress was amazing, one of the best meals I have had all year. Great for a celebration!
The best meal I’ve ever had. The food and service was just perfect.
Food was amazing!
We love every aspect of the restaurant, period.
The service was great and our lady server was quite helpful and always right there. The place is a bit pricey I think but maybe I need to eat out more. The noise level was rather high and maybe a few wall decorations to dampen the noise would be nice. However, we are definitely going back!
Amazing food - with great flavors and portion sizes. Cocktails were delicious. Fantastic, very friendly staff that was attentive without being smothering. Will definitely return and recommend to others.
Really appreciated the recommendations from our server on both food and wine. Really pleased (and delightfully surprised) at his knowledge of the wine profile but also the history. Great experience!
Great food and presentation. Highly recommended.
