Dirty Not Professional. My husband and I were in San Francisco on our anniversary, we went to this place to celebrate our special day.. It was awfull, since the preformer started, i was throwen with a piece of meat on my table and the glasees of wine was spilled all on me. The show was so terrible not professional throwing food on people while they having dinner. I was so dissapointed ,people in The Embarcadero St preforms better than this place. I had the restaurant Manager come over to our table just to appolize, but she said that she can not do anything regarding what happen> What kind of management they have in this 5 start rest horrible.....I will never recommend this place at all..... Really bad service
Eat before, or plan to eat later....
First let's start with the positive. To be fair, I must say, this definately was an experience. The decor, atmosphere, and personalities definately made the night fun. This night was a surprise from my guy, I had no idea what I was getting into, so when we were greeted by a queen in drag calling us "Sluts" I thought what fun. We were given a bed number- so you can guess my anticipation from that point. The staff was courteous and played up the campy/burlesque vibe which dominated the evening. Again, fun. We got on our "bed" and waited for the show.
Totally LOVED the performer in the checkered body stocking and her interactive dancing. But from that point, if you blinked you missed the rest of the acts. The performances were very short, and if you had a seat on the left wall behind the DJ counter you had to stand up on your bed to see while being careful not to knock over your tray.
Now for the food and drinks. I ordered a mojito and could not drink it because it seemed like straight alcohol. So then I ordered a specialty drink with all kinds of fruits and it was just as stout. I was starving so I didn't dare drink either one and I was so glad I didn't, my boyfriend who is a retired football player got blotto on his vodka tonics (3 of them) which is usually no big deal.
We sat down at around 7:30 and did not recieve our first course until around 8:45. The shrimp salad was sparse but tasted great. About 30 minutes later we got what seemed like lobster bisque, pretty good. At around 9:15 I got a prime rib (tough and undercooked) slathered in horseradish sauce over a smidge of mashed potatoes. I was still starving and getting tired of standing to be able to see, I just gave up and tried to sip on my watered down drink, which was still too strong. The desert tasted great, fresh fruit, a small dollop of ice cream and a light wafer. My boyfriend was slurring how he expeced Cirque de Solie and our own bed and that he was still hungry, the sweet waitress sensed that we were done with the whole thing and expedited our ticket saying that if we waited much longer it would be difficult to get out and catch a cab. I was exhausted by the end of this experience, but can say that the excitement and apprehension that lead up to the dining experience was great fun.
A bit of advice, they would do well to put normal amounts of liquor in the drinks and spend the money on a menu selection, and more acts to perform maybe twice instead of one time it would solve alot of problems. Also, the DJ booth is a severe problem. Move that or don't seat people behind it. That is just thoughtless and a little disrespectful to patrons that pay alot to be there.
waaaaaaaaaaaaay overrated place!!!.
I went to the place last night with a group of 10 pple for a bachelorett party!
we were informed of the weitress that the menue was a secret!!!! i couldnt belive it!! when you pay 70$ just for the food, you sure want to know what they are serving you.
I ended up paying 70 $ for : 3 piece of tofu, a small boll of green bean soup, a half cup rice seasoned with herbs and a creme brulle(wich was the only good part of the 4 course meal). the timing between each dish was bad, tok aprox. about 30-60 min between each course. was served . what they served should have costed me ca. 35 dollor if it was at a nice restaurant.
I ended up spending 130$ for a simple vegeterian food and 2 glass wine( no fancy wine either).......i felt ripped off!
I went home hungry and warmed up some lasagna after i went home....
They had poor exciuse av entertainment!!!!!!
I was kinda expected a show with a theme or some dansing or singing but all i got was a old drag doing some moves and singing an unrecognizable song.......
and the music was so yesterdays music, they need to update their song selections! i felt i was back in 90's again!
Overall, you are not getting the experience nor the food that you are paying for!!!
Take your money and spend it some where else!!!!
This could be SUCH a better place.
Saw this restaurant on the Travel Channel so decided I wanted to go for my birthday last July. The menu was very nice we started with appetizers that was like a duck mousse, followed by a soup mushroom base soup with white truffle oil and creme fraiche (very rich) Chicken Coq au Vin was not as exciting as the rest of the menu had been but the evening ended with a very tasty Creme Brulee with a macaroon cookie.
The entertainment is... entertaining without being overkill also we went on a Friday night 7/17 (my birthday) and it wasn't busy at all. The entire upstairs was empty but I think this may have been because the bondage event was the next evening. :)
Service was attentive and very very nice after reading the comments and reviews regarding the errors in bills taken to the table afterward (on here and other review sites) I was curious as to what (might) happen but it was fine. Drinks prices were to be as expected. Nice atmosphere definitely a must do for at least once in your life.
Don't go on a weeknight. I have lived in SF for quite a while and was reluctant to go to the Supperclub, thinking it was more of a tourist attraction. I finally took the plunge for a friend's b-day and for the most part am glad I did. I was fairly impressed with the food, but not blown away. What I didn't appreciate was the lack luster entertainment. It was a bit of a slow weeknight and they had some tired old queen dressed in a bunny suit prancing around and being surly. It seemed like they dragged her out of an AA meeting to fill a vacant spot when they couldn't get any real entertainment for the evening. I don't know what the regular entertainment is like but if I were to go back again, it would most definitely be on a weekend.
Did not live up to expectations, eat, you will leave hungry.
I picked this place as a special treat for my husband's birthday. I had heard rave reviews on the Travel Channel the previous week and the website looked great. I made a reservation online. The website had some kind of glitch and never sent me the confirmation code. After doing this thrice, I called and confirmed my reservation.
The place was easy to find. As we entered, we were greeted by 2 guys offering popcorn and candyfloss. We moved on to the host who could not find my reservation and kept asking me for my name until someone told him to just let us in. I loved his costume though.
The bar was nice, living up to the over-the-top image. However, the bartender served me wine that had turned (they need to store their wine better than just keep open bottles around). I did get a new glass of wine upon bringing to his notice. We didn't have to wait too long to be led into the main restaurant.
At first, the space appears to be so much smaller than on the website or the Travel Channel. The beds were very comfortable and the decor is white and simple. I do wish they would have bigger tables so we could place our large dinner plates. Eating on a plush mattress is a little bit of a challenge....
The entertainment was kind of random, but the 2 trapeze acts were both really good. Maybe it was my previous trip to Vegas and grand performances, but I didn't think the performances were out of the ordinary in terms of themes or variety. I was kind of disappointed , maybe I was expecting too much....We couldn't see some of the performances since the performer was in front of a large screen on the 2nd floor (we were seated on the 1st floor).
The server did ask us about any food reservations since the first course was raw fish. The appetizer was decent, the second course was just terrible (some kind of soup in a dog bowl). The main course (chicken) was average. The only thing I really liked was the dessert (strawberries and cream). Portions were tinyyyyyy so I was left hungry and I overheard other patrons saying this too.
My husband ordered a couple of drinks and he really liked them all. I also got him a massage and he said it was really good. After the end of the meal, the dance floor was opened to guests. I did not appreciate the music much (too much European techno - disco). Most people did not join us on the dance floor, it just wasn't as happening. After about 30 mins or so, we decided to leave in search of some more food!!
Overall, I wish I got more value for my buck....but my husband had a blast.
Enjoyed atmospher for price, but beware of big overcharges!!. I did enjoy the atmospher which entailed trance-like music at a comfortable volume. Apparently show changes every evening per staff, but beware it is for adults only. Food was Vegan night!! I am not a vegiterian but even I can admit, It was a well portioned and tasty. This place is certainly not for families or conservative types. Their were two shows, one small cooky clown like performance which surprisingly turn into a strip clown. 2nd show was a swinging pole acrobatic but classy performance beautifully done with fantastic music. Music similar music to Crique du solei. Beds clean and comfortable, surprised dining in them was comfortable. I did not stay for dancing. We & many others were however over billed by $100. For 3 people, dinner was $65 plus 2 drinks each & a voz of black cherry mixed drink (which was fabulous) for $55, does not total $400!. They were overcharging everybody. Staff were kind, but one apparantly in charge turned ugly diva when we challanged bill a 2nd time!! they could not get it right. We waited more than 40mn. They did offer drinks while they refigured amt, so to not offend we said ok placed an order & then they bring us shots!! I/we make great $$ and tips well. They knew what they were doing, and banking on many that probably fell for it because they were all lit. Fortunantely we can hold our drinks, we ended up requesting they void card entirely and recalculate correctly. They took even longer. We said forget it, here $210 & we walked out. I am not a complainer, but my friend used to manage La Fondue restaurant, and she was not having it, particularly when floor manager tried to argue that we were give free drinks!! She straight up pointed it out on the receipt, and the chick sarcastically said ok, but by then my friend was insulted, and we all just pulled out cash, tossed it near their register and left.. So on a scale 1-10 entertainment 7, dinner 8, music 8,atmospher 7, serv 6, and price 8, but beware overcharges.
GO for the experience, not the food!. My guy and I were expecting a racy Cirque du Soleil-ish experience as per their website. As the cab circled the poorly lit street, we finally found the address by a door, no signage out front. A transvestite checked us in and offered to take our coats while escorting us into the bar. Fun pleather costumes on the bartenders and who quickly got us drinks and setteled in for the long 30 minutes wait, til we would be escorted to the dining room. Already the experience was more bizarre than alluring. Obese men showing lots of skin with bits of costumes and dual gendered actors in feel-me-up boxes was bizarre not tantalizing. Finally we were allowed to enter the dining room and settle into our bed. Fun just because my guy is a complete hottie and any bed with him is good! ;) Actors roamed around with varying degrees of undress. There didn't seem to be a theme to the costumes or party tricks that they were performing. We watched as the other patrons filed in and snickered when a young couple came in with her parents! (NOT the place to bring your conservative parents while they are in town for a visit! ) As the random and sometimes creepy (grown men in diapers on roller skates?!? UGH!) acts continued, they began to serve food. We were excited because the stellar view of the steamy kitchen had our mouths watering! Unfortunately, EVERY course they brought us included raw fish/seafood!!! YUK! We were not warned that this would be the case and we not given another option! We assumed we would devour the dessert as we were both famished after a long evening and many cocktails but the banana mousse they brought us was equally inedible! Burgers later for sure! We were expecting a show of some kind but it was just actors walking around doing party tricks. Great one-time experience for the bizzare and randomness but with mediocre actors and costumes and horrendous food, that was overpriced, I would suggest that you wait til later and pay the cover to enter as a club goer! Have fun!;)
Very recommend it.
It's very cool inside. I like that circle bar in the middle, where it's always cool to chat and have a drink.
The crowd is cool also. Good music. The place is big, which is always nice, since you gonna have planty of room. Oh, yeah! they have two dance floors. The secon one is much more smaller, but still it's cool.
I've never been there on Friday night, but on Sat it's always full. Very recommend it.
Avoid, Avoid, Avoid!!!. Horribly overpriced. The "bedroom" style seating is poorly executed and results in a very uncomfortable dining experience. It misses the mark on everything: food, show, service, and especially price. The food is okay, but comparable fare normally hovers around $25 at a restaurant (in comparison to the $60 cover at supper club, drinks not included). This is not a Teatro Zinnani or Beach Blanket Babylon, so don't expect dinner theater, though it may try. The entertainment devolves in a few sloppy exhibitions which attempt to shock you with alternative lifestyle themes, but are little more than party tricks. If you ignore me and decided to go, at a minimum take this advice- do not make reservations for 4, 6, or 8 because you will be allocated the same amount of space the 2 person parties are given. Instead make several reservations for parties of 2, get there early, and ask to be seated at adjacent tables. Or just don't go, thats the safe choice.
