Tired and uninteresting. Sorry, but I have to be honest about my recent experience there. The atmosphere is unbearably noisy, the food is flat and barely palatable. Wines by the glass are ridiculously unappealing. The fact that I could get a table for four as a walk-in was a red flag.
Great late afternoon brunch. These are probably the best pancakes in town. Probably would ask for less syrup next time but can we really complain about too much syrup...very nice about giving us an extra dollop of whipped cream.
Fabulous dinner!. While recently visiting SF, we found 2223 on citysearch and gave it a shot for our first night out for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to find it quite the busy spot in the Castro District for drinks and dinner. We were promptly seated with our reservation without knowing the incredible treats to soon follow. For starters, the cocktails are STIFF and have fitting names like Twig and Berries, Mel's Manhandler, or the Mood Swinger. For dinner I ordered the Braised Colorado Lamb Shank with gorgonzola gnocchi and veggies. It was to die for! My date had the mushroom risotto which is also recommended. Dessert was even more tasty as we had the Apple Spice Cake and devoured every bite! The service/staff were exceptionally nice, the menu suits all taste buds, the wine/cocktails great, ambience is soothing and the prices are even better!
Fabulous service & tasty eats!. My boyfriend and I went here for sunday brunch. We were seated immediately. Serivice was an A++...our waiter was very friendly and the owner even came by our table and greeted us. I ordered the mushroom goat cheese bread pudding and my boyfriend ordered the chorizo and pepperjack scramble. We first started off with the pecan cinnamon roll---talk about de-LISH!! The ingredients used were perfectly portioned. Just enough sweetness, warm, soft goodness with a sprinkle of crunch from the perfectly roasted pecans. The bread pudding was a hit..I love anything with goat cheese =). Overall, food, ambiance, service met above and beyond our expectations--especially since it was our first dining experience there. Will definitely come back for more!!
Consistantly Good!. This place has the best comfort food in the castro. Friendly personable, easy on the eyes staff, nice atmosphere, revolving local art work, good sunday brunch.
simply the best brunch. Chef Randolph is one of the kindness and talented chef i ever met .her food is a delight .The service is very friendly and the drinks are just great
Lame. I do not recommend this place. Went on Sunday for a late brunch, the place wasnt empty or packed, just right. We were seated immediately thanks to a reservation. However, it took a good 15 minutes before our waitress first appeared. It then took about 15 min for the first plate to appear, french toast, and then it took about 35 minutes for the remaining meals to come. We did not order anything over the top - eggs benedict, french toast and an omelete. The service was sub par. so much so that when I requested tobasco sauce, the water came back spewing attitude. And then when I inquired about the delays, I was told the high number of patrons put a squeeze on the kitchen. there were about 20-30 people at the restaurant, making that claim unbelievable. food was ok, the service was horrible. I would not recommend it.
great restaurant. love the food ,this place is still rocking after so many years .Chef melinda Randolph is still doing amzing food.love the decor and the service very friendly
Very good food, great service. I ate here for the first time in years. It is still serving great food. I enjoyed the whole experience. It was delicious and served promptly. It was also hot. The server was always there when I wanted something. The manager told me "goodbye", when I left. I really enjoyed the decor and the mood. The service staff seemed busy, but not rushed. I would tell everyone to enjoy 2223. I also plan on trying their brunch.
Good brunch but with an attitude. The brunch itself was delicious. Even my friend, who is a picky eater, enjoyed his scramble. I kept on looking at the food being brought to other tables and wished that there was a larger group so that I could have sampled more items. The biscuits and gravy are declisious, not too creamy as is the case for some places. Although I enjoyed their food, I didn't care for the service. It wasn't horrible but it could have been better. Despite the fact that we came at the time of our reservation, we had to wait to be seated because the host wanted to seat another couple who came after us first. The waiter was a bit snippy, refusing to point out any particular dishes he liked. He also never bothered to check in on us after taking the order and simply handed us the check without asking if there was anything else we wanted.
