Just like I remembered. I went here once a long time ago and recently rediscovered it..It was so good we will definitely be going back. The service was right on time, polite but not in your face..The food was fantastic. The ambience is quiet but not dead. I would absolutely recommend this place- another great restaurant of San Francisco.
Nice Neighborhood Spot. Stopped in for a birthday dinner and was seated in the smaller back room of the restaurant. Food is california fusion, we started with crabcakes and a manila clam/chorizo appetizer, both decently sized and good. Entrees were about $25, we had the seafood risotto while I had the duckbreast with truffles and asparagus risotto, very nice. Dessert was a bit boring. Overall, the restaurant decor is very understated but things got a bit noisy in the back room on a Fri night. Service was very good, timely but not intrusive, the best part of the meal. Stop by if you're in the neighborhood but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here.
Its really really good.
A terrific neighborhood place. We only had salads and a hamburger on a Sunday night, but this place was a well-oiled, totally pleasurable machine. Lovely atmosphere - places like this make San Francisco great.
Pricing was SF-aggressive, but I can respect that.
Well Done. Everything was as you would hope it to be. We were seated in a back corner at our request. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was quite good, and medium-sized portions. I highly recommend the lamb dish. The staff let us linger for a few hours. It's a dark and narrow restaurant, so it can be a bit of a squeeze, but it was still quiet enough for me to hear my girlfriend's soft voice. I highly recommend Garibaldi's.
California-Mediterranean Hidden Treasure. Decorated in a minimalist tradition with only black and white photographs adoring walls painted in muted tones, the subdued dining room at Garibaldis in Pacific Heights features clean rows of closely-spaced tables dressed in crisp white linens. The California-Mediterranean-inspired menu features appetizers including Tropical Salad, a combination of pomelo, orange, and endive and Leek and Asparagus Tart as well as entrees including Prawn Risotto and Lamb Tenderloin with Pistachio Couscous. The knowledgeable staff is polite and personable, while the fairly priced, California-focused wine list could be expanded to include more diverse selections. Since the tables are closely juxtaposed, Garibaldis is not the place to have private conversations, but the well-executed, innovative dishes, pleasant service, and sophisticated atmosphere compensate for any inconvenience. Fairly priced for a dining experience of this caliber in San Francisco (dinner for two with wine $130), Garibaldis is a California-Mediterranean hidden treasure in our midst.
first time was sublime!. Extremely tasty food and wine, though if you are the type of person who REALLY cares about presentation, this wasn't one of those places that piles it all in one really tall,narrow cylinder on your plate; it's presented simply and hot in generous portions. Pleasant staff and impressive artowrk on the walls. All in all, a comfortable dining experience with a pinch of elegance.
Do NOT Miss This. Garibaldi's was the most exquisite dining experience of my life--and I have experienced a great deal of fine dining in SF. The wine menu is diverse and exceptional. The chef tantalizes diners with a unique menu that tantilizes even the most sophisticated palate. We tried the carrot-orange soup, their very special chicken dish, and the most incredible lamb I have ever tasted. Dining here is more than a meal, it is a moment never forgotten! I will be back as often as possible.
