Great Value – Although this grill is located in an extremely noisy neighborhood, it serves up good burgers and sandwiches. It is a bit noisy though. Service isn't too hot, but this is a grill. come for the happy hours (3-7) for cheap beer.
Fantastic – I visited this place when it was the GG brewery and was disappointed when it closed. I just got back into the neighborhood and thought I'd give them a try. Reading the reviews did not distract me from forming my own opinion. Came in on a monday afternoon and was greeted by a very friendly bartender. He was helpful and helped me with my beer selection. All their beer is brewed in house, contrary to prior reviews. I had such a positive experience that I came back later that week with some friends and the experience again was great. This time we ordered from the menu and were not disappointed. Now Eldo's has become my hang out and love the ambiance and all. As a fact thier Vienna Lager placed #3 in the State Fair, good enough reason to visit them.
Hear THIS Story! – Walked in for dinner on a Thursday night. No host to greet us, so we seated ourselves. Menus and a drink order were hard to come by. My husband ordered a non-house beer and was told "we don't serve that". Indeed they do. We ordered two Caesars and received ONE blue cheese salad. When I pointed this out to the waitress, she said "but it looks so much like Caesar dressing!". Entrees came before the salads were cleared, and I was astonished to find that my pasta dish had prosciutto in it. I do not eat pork and had I known, I never would have ordered it (it was a special and the waitress' description made no mention). When this was pointed out to her she said, "what is brosciutto?". Nothing was taken off of our bill for the outrageously bad service. The service at this place is a JOKE.
Disappointed! – I was very disappointed to dine here yesterday evening. The service was terrible, the food was cold, and the manager wasn't even there to save our night!
Vampires beware! – I very much like the look and feel of Eldos - dark wood, polished, light at just the right level. Our server and the various busboys that attended us were very pleasant and seem to enjoy being there. We started with a couple of house beers, which are excellent, and very delicious chips with tasty guacamole and salsa verde. However, my entree was disappointing - the chicken was cooked unevenly - the leg and wings were delectable, but the breast was so dry as to be inedible. In addition, the spinach was mixed with entirely too much garlic - if they had used half the amount, it would have been perfect. The plaintains were outstanding, though. My date enjoyed her blackened catfish much more.
Terrible Service – Don't be fooled by Eldo's exterior...I'd never go there again! Came in on a Sunday morning and there was no host to greet us, as well as the several other groups that came after us...so we were left there standing unsure of whether to take our own seats or not. Service from the waitress was terrible, too casual and unprofessional...the food wasn't that great either! No wonder you don't need reservations to eat here!
Great food, beer, and service! – I just moved into this neighborhood after having lived in the Haight, North Beach, and the Mission. I wish those other neighborhoods had an Eldos. Their menu has a slightly mexican twinge, but there is something for everyone. The cheesesteak was great, and their brunch is really good. Everything is quite fresh and well prepared. If you are a beer drinker, they may have the best brewed beer in the city.
bad ratings undeserved – The bad reviews given earilier for this restaurant were quite undeserved. The food was good and reasonably priced. The fish and chips were excellent and the hamburger was very good. The only strange thing about this restaurant was the lack of customers!
Good news, good beer – After seeing some of the other reviews, didn't know what to expect. Went with another beer buddy on a Saturday and had great time. Food was good and the 4 house-brewed beers were all very good, especially the pilsner. I'll go back, for sure. I went here went it was Golden Gate Brewing and it is still a nice space. Hope the get more customers, tho.
Very friendly staff, great beer – I read the first two reviews in City Search and almost didn't go to the restaurant. I decided I had to try it anyway. I loved the staff. I had the totally opposite experience, they were friendly and sociable. I actually got into an interesting conversation with one of the staff. The beer is fantastic! Try the Vienna. I also had the Seared Ahi Tuna salad and it was quite good (tuna was fantastic, but there was too much sauce on the cabbage underneath). The chips and salsa were exceptional. I love warm chips! If you are a fan of tiramisu then get it here, it's the real stuff. Please do go, I would love to keep this kind of business in my neighborhood... fresh beer, mmmmm. Prices were reasonable as well.
