Overall-very positive experience – Had a nice time! The space looks like an updated victorian building, you can tell from the beams along the ceiling and the bathrooms, but the ambience was still very pleasant. Somewhat crowded for a Thurs nite and lots of late nite diners/couples on double dates sipping flights of wine and nibbling desserts (wasn't crazy about dessert). Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and gorged:2 apps, 2 entrees, 2 desserts, 1 flight wine and 3 glasses wine for $180 (includes tax/tip). Yummi-pureed soup, mushroom dumplings, lamb, ahi tuna tower... not so crazy about the duck, curry squash and desserts (panna cotta and chocolate cake were average). Good selection of local and international wines. So I definitely recommend checking it out if you've never been before, although I don't think I'll be going back a 2nd time (too far from where I live, and there's so many other places in SF to try!!)
Not bad, but not fabulous – I have to say that I was a little disappointed. The food was definitely very good, but the seating was very crowded and the service was average. Outside the food, the experience just wasn't that great. I travelled across town to go, and it wasn't really worth the trip. If I lived in the neighborhood, it would be a different story.
Wonderful experience – I went to Eos recently and had a wonderful time! I had a small party that became a large party and the hostess was more than willing to accomodate us. We didn't feel pressure to eat quickly and did not have to wait very long for our table. The server was excellent, he helped us pick the right amount of food for us, since they have small plates, and the wine to go with it. It was an overall fantastic experience and I would recommend it to everyone! The food was amazing as well as the dessert...definitely save room for dessert! The pumpkin creme brulee was to die for! As well as the bananamisu and the chocolate cake! No hard alcohol, but wonderful wines to pair with the food.
Excellent – EOS is one of my all time favorite restaurant in the city. All the dishes are on point, I especially recommend the shitake mushroom dumpings and the grilled chorizo stuff calamari, but you can't go wrong with any of the dishes on the menu. And the dessert it's heavenly-I highly recommend the bananamisu- the presentation is something else. They also have great deals on wine- the bottle and flights.
RUDE STAFF!! Wine bar recommended – Due to circumstance we were a bit late for our reservation. After knowing the business for so long, I know it's a pain when this happens and tables cannot be held.
The hostess did not have to be so RUDE about it.
We ended up walking around to the wine bar where we were greated, offered a table and had a lovely meal with exceptional service. The lemongrass risotto, the hangar steak and the noodle cake plates were the favorites but nothing beats the dessert. We had the creme brulee, the jasmine chocolate cake and the cardamon chocolate mousse cake and all three were so good we did everything but lick the plate.
Eos what a discovery !! – We loved everything we had and we had everything ! we were a group of 8 people so we basically tried a lot of apetizer and main courses. The shintake mushroom dumpling were amazing. The curry potato cake with a pink bernese sauce unbelivable ! Wonderful beef filet and save room for the delicious desserts. We had the bananamisu',grat presentation,lovely flavor as well as the authentic panna cotta.If you love chocolate don't miss their mousse. We love he cozy wine bar and their "flights".
Great discovery, my first choice from nowon ! Service need a little improvement. Waitress are somhow distracted and forget to get orders from everybody or they just walk away while you are still ordering...you can easly forget the ok service with their great food.
Great time! – I can't believe the review I just read about EOS! I had an amazing time there this past weekend. I thought the food was wonderful and the service was great! We got a ton of attention, our water glasses were never empty and the servers were outgoing and positive. When we had questions about the wine, I found the server quite knowledgeable and ready to help. They were also quite eager to accommadate a diner with food allergies. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!
My all-time FAVORITE! – There has not been one time I've been here that the food, the wine and service is not absolutely exceptional. This place is truly amazing - better than any five star restaurant and prices so reasonable. I was just there last night with some friends and the menu had recently changed... all I can say is WOW! The serrano ham, asparagus, and manchego rolls are to die for. The fresh water prawns with corn succotash is so amazing, you'll want to write home. Every dish I've ever ordered here gets a sucrumptous "MMMMMMMMM" with a 45 degree angle stare. I go out to eat almost every night and have been to every notable restaurant in the city - I can honestly say this is the best restaurant in SF.
Surprisingly Bad – Service: Horrendous. Inattentive, rude, uninterested wait staff.
Food: Uninspired, thrown together concoctions with little attention to detail. Over use of filler ingredients, such as leafy greens and kim-chee.
Our beef dish had good flavor, but the main ingredient was tough, undercooked eggplant.
Summary: We had high expectations and were disappointed in the overall experience. Don't waste your evening at EOS.
Did we just hit it on a bad night? – We expected something much better. For starters, as a restaurant that advertises itself as a wine bar/restaurant, the wine list was the first disappointment. There were fewer wines by the glass that we had hoped, LIMITED flights, and no information on the wines. When we asked our server for recommendations, her knowledge was really limited. In addition, there was no information on wine/food pairings. We ended up ordering 6 plates -- the signature Mushroom Dumplings was really the ONLY one we thought stood out. Chicken Clay Pot - bland. Stuffed Calamari -- rubbery. Long Beans -- good, but not anything unique to them. Risotto - o.k. Ahi Tuna Rolls With Mango - wasabi overpowered the mango which was so bland. We had the signature Bananamisu for dessert which was excellent, but the Chocolate Creme Brulee was too hard on top. Certainly better places around the city for food AND wine!
