Food Not Good. I had heard great reviews about Home in the past so I brought my husband there tonight expecting great food. It was the total opposite. We tried the mini corndogs as our appetizer. It was lukewarm, at best. The hotdog itself was tasty but the cornmeal wasn't crispy at all. We also ordered some cornbread. It came out piping hot and yummy. I ordered the Seafood Cioppino minus the mussels. It was brought to me as if someone had already eaten most of the food offered on the plate. I had two mediocre pieces of baguette to soak up the stock. The dish consisted of TINY pieces of bay scallops, shrimp and 3 pieces of tuna. Where was the crab??? Our waiter agreed with me that the plate looked bare, so he brought it back to the kitchen to add the crab. I believe the manager came back with my new dish, but the kitchen only added a tablespoon of crabmeat under the baguette slices. My husband asked if I had ordered a sampler dish - where was the food I was going to pay almost $20 for??? Even the diner sitting at the table next to us asked why my dish looked the way it did! I didn't want to complain again, so I dug into the cioppino only to be disappointed even more - it was less than lukewarm. My husband ordered more cornbread to curb my hunger. I also downed an entire bottle of Pellegrino to feel full. My poor husband ordered the Niman Ranch flatiron steak - medium. It came out medium-well and tasted as if the meat had been frozen for days. Bad bad food. I didn't even want to bother with the dessert menu. Service was fine but I won't be going back to Home.
BAD BAD BAD!!!!!!. Home used to be great. Great food, great service. Not anymore! The last 2 times I have been to Home, the service has been less than acceptable. Today, I went with 2 friends. It was not very full with customers. We were seated, and ordered right away. Then, a couple was seated next to us... then 5 minutes later.. another couple was seated next to them. Both of the other parties food came.. BEFORE OURS!! After we complained... our food came about 10 minutes later. I mean, how long does it take to make a salad.. I mean really! It also seemed our sever and other staff were too busy with a certain party. One of the people in that party is/and or was a server I have seen at Home before. Needless to say.. we were neglected. One of the worst experiences I have ever had at Home. So, dont waste your time or money going to Home!
Great American Comfort Food. Ate here Halloween weekend. This used to be fast food place Boston Market. Completely nice and warm now. Great views of Castro street scene. Downside is the noise and crowding factor.
STAY HOME!. I use to love this place for the quality and value but they have just lost it! The attitude of the staff and whatever the cooks are doing, which isn't much, just flushed this place down the drain. Went there one night 30 minutes before closing. It was clear the staff was ready to get out of there A.S.A.P. I ordered pot-roast and a side of spinach...and advertising that your meat is Neimans Ranch is nothing to brag about, that's what Safeways sells...Golden Gate Meat Company is quality. 1-2 minutes at the most after ordering my meal was out. The mashed potatoes were colder than room tempature and the pot-roast was nuked to the max. The spinach was not properly washed, it was full of sand, and cold also. After not touching my meal and sitting there for 15 minutes I was asked if it was not ok, I explained, the spinach was taken off my bill and I asked for a to-go box for the meat to take home to the dog. I paid and sat there for another 15 minutes. I had to go to the bar to ask where my to-go box was and they had thrown it away. I left, and that evening called back to let the manager know I was upset that I had paid for a meal the was discusting and disgarded, he asked me to come back the next night to make it up...I won't even continue...it was worse! If your looking for a great comfort food with fantastic staff and atmosphere in the castro go to 2223! ...or stay home
Home is not Homey....
Appetizer: Sloppy Joe dip - almost gross. Too sweet, the chips were horrible. Just the whole thing was bad.
Flat iron steak was just ok.
Mac n cheese was flavorless, not like mine!
Overall this place is an overpriced denny's. Sorry, but lets be honest.
Great comfort food. I eat here at least once a month and I've never had anything I haven't liked. Favorites are the meatloaf and the macaroni and cheese. It's hard to talk during dinner because it's always crowded and loud, but the food is great. They have good drink specials too if you get there before 7pm.
excellent food, drinks!. For the prices, food and drinks are great. Try the duck roll and pumpkin soup. The pork chop was also great. Noisy/loud though!
Best Nightly Dinner Special and a great Burger.
If your looking for a great dinner special then go to home on there is a special Every day from 5-6pm ,Three-course prix fixe menu & glass of wine.
The happy hour also has 1/2 priced drinks until 7(or was that 7:30) with the drinks at $3.50 a pop I can't remember
This is not the place to go if you want peace and quiet cause it's more for socializing with friends(if it's cold try and sit on the patio by the fire but if you want to socialize on a budget get there early and have the dinner special or the must have Niman Ranch burger it's off the hook and it'sonly $10.00(with fries)
Anything but Home. I heard a lot about Home before going. I went twice because I wanted to give it a chance. The food was very mediocre and the staff was rude. We waited to be seated when there were plenty of tables that were setup for parties. I would avoid this place and checkout another restaurant in the Castro.
It's all about the patio. Here's the key to eating at home: Demand seating on the patio and bring friends. It's not really good for dates - but it's great for dinner with a few friends out on the patio (particularly when the fire is going). Let's face it, the food is good - not great. And perhaps a bit overpriced. But for the neighborhood, you won't find much better. I enjoy Home every one in a while. It's a solid staple restaurant.
