Great place for a business lunch. Nice and quiet, with great service and lovely, delicious food.
the service was slow, especially when we tried to check out
Terrific food and Tony was delightful. Fantastic experience.
Inventive, complex, and well-executed food, excellent service. Good value for the level of cooking.Really surprised the place isn't packed.
Went for brunch across from the Moscone convention center
Great chef, good service. One of the best burgers I’ve ever had.
Great place for a good 'bite' when you are at MOMA
Food was good. Service was very slow. We had to ask everytime we needed water or coffee refilled. No one asked about our food after it was served. They refused to split our check.
Can get really busy when the crowd comes in
Friday night. Just a few tables going. Very attentive server. Appreciate the no corkage on the weekend policy! Food was generally good portions and tasty.
I love going to Trace for lunch and go often - I mean almost every week!
The food is excellent and the service is the best!
Had a business meeting. The service (Sean) was amazing--very attentive. Coffees and water refilled regularly. Food was also delicious. Everything from oatmeal and fruit to lox to traditional eggs and bacon. Only drawback was the NOISE. VERY hard to hear the person right next to you. Some of the booths for four seemed a bit more "relaxed". Highly recommended for up to four people--no more.
Food was ok, but overall was not worth the value.
The service was great and the restaurant was nice. There was dancing at the adjacent bar. Everyone looked like they were having a great time. We came for Valentines and loved they gave us an option of prefix or to order from the menu. Thank you for a nice evening!
Not a bad location but nothing to write home about either. Food was good but not stunning. Caesar salad sounded awesome with kale and Brussels sprouts and bacon. It was essentially a partial head of lettuce with bacon and one leaf of kale on top. No Brussels sprouts at all. Despite it being a quiet Monday night the service felt rushed and more brusque than friendly. For about $100 per person with wine, I could do better
Trace is a lovely place for lunch SOMA. The waiters are the best! One of the best burgers in the city and the $20 lunch-on-the-fly is a great deal.
best service! super thankyou sir roger!
We were thrilled to discover Trace. It was next door to SFMoMa. An absolute delight.
Staff is attentive, food fresh, ambience & ability to carry on conversation is outstanding
This place has a really lovely decor, that creates a great ambiance. The food is interesting, unique and delicious. The service is perfect. It's SF, so you are not going to get away cheep, but even for SF it was reasonable. We really enjoyed our dinner.
Perfect in every way and right across the street from the ballet!
If your restaurant is closed and not doing business, it would be really fantastic if you did not except reservations and then send text to confirm them.
Our waiter was a delight. Food was very creative and delicious.
The pancakes were one of the best brunch dishes I've ever had in the city
We had a nice breakfast but felt it was kind of pricey. Restaurant is sleek and not very busy.
This meal was wonderful. The Cesar Salad is unique with bacon croutons. We all had the striped bass and it was perfectly cooked and adorned. I love the crunchy crust. The only question was the peach in the peach salad, which my friends said was not ripe, not a big deal but otherwise would have been a perfect meal! I would like to go back and try other entrees. It's a great location right next door to the MoMa. And the bathroom is uniquely SF, gender neutral with men and women cohabitation. (Don't worry, no urinals)!
I’ve been to Trace many times for lunch And I’ve not been disappointed. My favorite cocktail is a Pisco Sour. Many bars in the city don’t make this drink but trace makes an excellent Pisco Sour And the waiter even remembers when he sees me that it’s my cocktail. This is a sign of real service since I’m not there every week just once a month maybe. They’re flat bread at lunchtime is also a killer
Business lunch reasonable, not fancy but good. Service is excellent, super friendly waiters
Awesome and very accommodating. We had a party of 12 for a business dinner.
I eat there regularly however food was not as good as it usually is. The sweet potato fries however were great!
Service is always superior.
Overall, the experience was quite poor. The service was quite good but the food was terrible and pricey overall. We enjoyed the appetizer but the entrees were both terrible which tainted the experience overall.
Roger is the best!
This is a lovely facility, and the service was just outstanding. Everyone with whom we interacted was responsive, professional and attentive.
Food was great, but Damien the waiter must be the best waiter in the city!
Great service, good handling of large crowd from Moscone conference. Food delicious as always.
Great food and great service. Beautiful atmosphere
Trace is a nice alternative to a ton of great SF restaurants. Although the menu is limited, what they do, they do well. I had the sous vide pork chop. Delicious. The brussel sprout appetizer is also excellent. Frankly, all of the food I had here was quite good. I recommend it.
We enjoyed the food and service. However we were overcharged ($33 for a hamburger) and unfortunately didn't realize until we were home. I have called management several times to discuss and haven't received a call back.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner. The food was great. Our server Roger wonderful and explained things well. Had a drink at the bar before dinner which was fun.
The food and service were good but it was so empty. Was hoping for a little 'ambience.' Appetizers very good, main course fine tho not exceptional. All fine but didn't stand out in this competitive environment. And they did a strange thing w our Travelzoo. Took $20 off the value of it because they said that is what Travelzoo charged them. Is this legal?
Classy decor, great food and service
