Supperclub's never appealed to me. It struck me as a glitz over substance sort of place and given that I'm about food not flash; I've had no interest in patronizing it. However, when a friend invited me recently for cocktails to celebrate her birthday, I accepted. I figured since she'd reserved a private room (on a weeknight) it would be a fairly manageable experience.
We arrived even before the birthday girl, ordered a couple drinks and made ourselves comfortable in "bed". Along with the birthday girl came the arrival of passed hors d'oeuvres - oysters, mini grilled cheese sandwiches with tiny cups of tomato soup and truffle popcorn. Talk about decadent, grown-up treats - and all were quite tasty to boot!
I'm still not likely to choose Supperclub for a night out on the town, but my recent experience there definitely left a good impression.
Overrated.. Over priced and not worth the time or money. We payed a premium for a table. Service was extremely poor, even with our "VIP" table, they made us wait a while before letting us in. The place is overrated.
Worst dining experience I've ever had. My fiancee had been looking at this place for a while, and when it showed up on Dine About Town, we decided to go with a couple friends. We were seated at 7:30 along with everyone else (despite reservations for 7) and were the last to have our drink orders taken at 8. When we tried to order a few different wines we were told each time that they were out. Note: if you have something on the menu, keep some in stock. We eventually settled on cocktails and waters. Our first course, a salad with berries, blue cheese, and some sort of cracker, arrived at 8:30. It was pretty good, but we devoured it in 5 minutes because we were all so famished. Of course, then the blue cheese made us thirsty because we still didn't have our drinks. Those arrived around 8:45. At that point, we received a 5 minute "show" which was at the level of a high school drama skit and did nothing to distract us from the poor service, overly loud house music preventing us from talking, or the long wait between dishes. The main dish arrived at 9:30 and was a beef dish with a side of cheesy corn meal. It was luke warm when it arrived and, at best, mediocre in flavor. Now, we were still hungry and getting angry, so we asked our waitress for the bill and for our dessert to be boxed. She insisted that we should stay and that the kitchen couldn't be rushed, but we insisted harder. And seriously?!? 2 dishes in 2 hours for a pre-set meal is nowhere near rushing. When we got the bill we were told that the card machine was broken so we'd have to pay in cash. Oh, and 18% gratuity was added for our party of 5! I repeat: Party of 5! I assume this is because she knew the service was bad and we were angry because I've never heard of this for parties less than six. When we left at 10:30, we headed for a chinese restaurant where we knew we'd get hot food quickly. Overall: mediocre food, bad service, overpriced, underportioned, and served in a bad atmosphere.
Good place to hang out with friends and your sweethearts!
What I like about supperclub is its atmosphere. If I go there, I feel very comfortable, fully relax and behave myself as I'm at mine friend's party. The music is great (mostly house music) and it it's not too loud as in some other clubs, when you almost have a headache from it.
I was at the supperclub's dinners several times and every time there was a performance, delicious food that made an indelible impression on me! I still can't forget the taste of roasted peking duck breast with cherries.))
Hot Spot with great food. My boyfriend and I went there for New Years and had an amazing time. We were expecting to enjoy ourselves but this place exceeded our hopes. It was sassy, campy and fun, with that said we were surprised at how good our food was. It was a perfect place to ring in 08!
Expensive, poor service, tourist trap, waste of time and money.
Overpriced. I paid for table service and ended up waiting an hour and half for my table. Then they wanted to charge an upfront gratuity which was not earned. An hour and a half! What kind a service was that??
Failed to live up to the Supperclub experience. San Francisco tourist trap.
A Complete Waste Of Time And Money. I had the displeasure of attending supperclub San Francisco on Friday night (8/3). I can't begin to express my profound disappointment in the entire experience. I should begin by congratulating Supperclub on great marketing. The website really makes an impressive visual impression of what a visitor can expect--musical numbers, acrobatic displays, incredible costumes, etc. Unfortunately, the actual experience is nothing like the marketing--not even close. There were no real shows or displays or anything else of interest except for a nice wall projection and expensive room lighting. The dining room was too warm, the food was mediocre, the music was too loud, and the "shows" were absolutely lame -- a creepy guy who puts on a tie while lip synching (badly) to a Depeche Mode song at the beginning of the evening and then puts on some make-up 3 hours later, and a marginally interesting drag queen who undresses at the end of the night. Seriously, Supperclub should be ashamed of the product they provide to their guests. $70 per person? For what? From what I experienced, supperclub is nothing more than a hip-hop dance club that happens to serve dinner. If I had known that, I wouldn't have bothered. Ironically, we went to supperclub because a good friend of ours went to the one in Amsterdam and absolutely raved about it. Perhaps that venue is as exciting and interesting as he described. That certainly is not the case in San Francisco. We wound up dropping nearly $500 for the 4 of us. What a complete and total rip off!
An experience I'll never forget!!!!!. i went with my cousin which needed a break from her stressful job, to which we both decided to dine at Supperclub on a Friday night. It was our first time there, and the place was packed when we arrived. The popcorn which had seasoning on it was delicious (keep in mind u can get more than one bag of it), the sashimi salad refreshing and definitely delicious (i eat sashimi all the time so i know what I'm talking about when I say fresh I MEAN it), the soup very smooth, light, warm and tasty. the meat entree was filling and perfectly portioned (one size fits all). the dessert was like a donut. You'd wonder how they can make a mere donut taste so good, I actually do not know their secret donut recipe!...it was PERFECT, the sweetness of it, the donut's texture...this restaurant can definitely live up to it's reputation + name. I stayed there for at least FOUR hours, watching many dramatic performances which my cousin and I found extremely amusing. We also danced the night away (but that was before dessert was served) to music which sounded experimental + mysterious. Everything was trendy, waiters and waitresses social + friendly. Try it out if you have extra time and money to spend, it is definitely a one of a kind experience! COCKTAILS ARE AMAZING ALSO. DON'T FORET THE COCKTAILS.
TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY!! I do not reccomend. I was more than dissapointed with the supperclub. I went there Friday w/ my boyfriend and neither of us enjoyed ourselves. The entire theme was SO sac religious I could not even enjoy myself. Nowhere on the website does it say that the people would be dressed in gothic angels, trampy nuns, the entire theme to me was mocking God and I thought it was completely inappropriate since it does not give any warning of that nature. The shows, WASTE OF TIME! The nun sang beauty and the priest, some lady sang opera as she clitched onto a bible, and some guy swang across the room after he ripped off his angel wings and basically acted out as he were a fallen angel from hell. IF i would have known or been warned of their theme I would have saved my money and stayed home. Overall the food was OK. the mystery meat hurt my stomache and the desert was a doughnut. For a table of two we spent $340. WAY OVER PRICED! Dont get me wrong, I am aware of the crazies in the city and I am very gay friendly, this was just over the line and very inappropriate, the music was not even good. I have nothing nice to say about this place and feel more than ripped off. I would only reccomend this to devil worshipers.
Head to this glitzy SOMA spot for a theatrical experience, stay for dinner in bed..
Padded red leather walls and disco balls surround nicely dressed 20- and 30-somethings sipping cocktails from the center bar. Servers sporting "Mad Max"-inspired costumes escort guests into the stark-white dining room as the proverbial curtain is lifted. An exhibition kitchen takes center stage, with a team of T-shirt-clad cooks making meals for a shoeless audience relaxing on white beds. Neon lights change the room's glow as clubby music pulses. Throughout the show, servers might slide down a two-story railing to dance on the bar, perform a lip-sync routine or swing from the ceiling.
There is no printed menu. The French-influenced prix fixe rotates weekly and might include a salad, fish, soup, meat and dessert. Everything is delicious, despite the scene-stealing atmosphere. A savory tapenade adds flair to a quail-egg salad while sweet chorizo tops radiant pink salmon. Chunks of apple float in thick squash soup, setting up a pork entree and frothy meringue dessert.
