Bad Service, substandard food! Don't do it! – Worst service, inconsistent, staff combative as opposed to sympathetic to customers. Never guaranteed reservation, management, organization and follow through does not exist. Bad in handling reservations.
Sad to see place in decline, limited menu, very limited. Ambiance lost it's luster, service rushed, outdoor sitting not set up, your faced with stacked chairs instead, can't appreciate overall setting of restaurant. Food is sad, steak okay, sides pre cooked, expensive wines, Forestville? Give me a break.
Large portions of traditional American food and intimate dining rooms highlight this Castro bar and grill. – In Short
Each dining room is cozy, with closely set tables. Dark red walls and dim lighting create an intimate glow, while banquettes offer a place to sip pre-dinner cocktails. The menu features traditional American entrees, ranging from whiskey-marinated flank steak to grilled ahi tuna with sesame-soy glaze. Sides include onion rings, waffle-cut fries and Thousand Island dressing on iceberg lettuce. Homemade pecan pie is a featured dessert.
price is right – the meals here are such a great value, it is so rare to find a steak house that includes even one side dish with the price of your meal- Red Grill included two plus a salad which makes it a great value. The Ahi, Rib Eye and scalloped potatoes were great. My sea bass was overcooked but the issue was quickly remedied w/out issue. Good drinks too.
Love this place – I have eaten here 3 or 4 times and always have a good meal. The steaks are where it's at!
Freezing cold in the back room on the ground floor; get some heat, this is San Francisco ! Also, how can you be out of Potato Skins and still have Baked Potato sides ???
The food and sides we did have were great. Too bad about the room temperature and a dying flashing light bulb in the too dimly lit room.
I've been here more times than I can count but last night was the first time I went upstairs. It was cozy. The steak is great. Go upstairs.
Excellent – I was impressed by the wait staff, the food, and the overall ambiance of the resturaunt. I had the New York steak and was very happy by what I received. The entrees were fantastic. The only drawback to the place is its size - its very small. But this only makes it that much more romantic!
Red Grill – One of the best deals in town. The pork chop is unbelievable! If you order steak watch the temps, they tend to come out on the rare side (happened both times we went there). Overall, a great experience and good cocktails as well.
watch out for service – If you are a friend of the waiters, you may be able to be seated in 5 minutes instead of 30, as quoted when you arrived.... no need to mind the people in line.... you can even gloat about it!
Too bad for the faithful customers who thought this was a neighborhood-friendly place!
People, food, drinks – Eating an informal dinner in the upstairs bar can't be beat for a tasty meal in the right place with the right drink. The fish dishes are excellent, with your choice of glaze making it easy to visit often.
The sides are as guilty as they are ample, and the bar quite good, with the staff in the upstairs bar the absolute best.
