Great bar, not so great food.
I'm curious how this place had 4 stars and no reviews prior to my review, hmmm. Anyway, the bar was fun, drinks were good, services was good, the food (as I said) not so good. I had a burger the first time. It was fair, not that bad. The second time I had the seafood platter appetizer. It was all just so-so, but my biggest complaint was the crab salad. I am 95% sure they used fake crab and if it wasn't fake then something was terribly, terribly wrong with the crab (dry & tasteless, ick).
I really wish them the best and hope someone else goes and has some great food and lets us know. Again, I liked the bar, drinks, and service. So someone else take one for the team, eat there, and report back.
This bar-bistro hybrid strives for sophistication with dashing, dimly lit interiors and a sizeable dinner menu, but the spirited local crowd keep things casual..
Pacific Heights' Long Bar & Bistro belongs to the same species of restaurant as Balboa Café: The bar is inextricably linked with the dining room so singles seated at tables can keep an eye on prospective dates waltzing through the door. The vibe here is classic, like an old-school hotel bar with barkeeps in white button-down shirts, dark wood paneling, mirrored walls--and an unpretentious, jovial scene that rivals that of more experienced restaurants nearby. What the all-American menu lacks in creativity it makes up for with fresh ingredients in dishes like the BLT wedge, crab cakes and brined pork rack chop.
