- Salt HouseSalt House the, 545 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94105recommended Salt HouseI have to give this place 5 stars; they provided an amazing dining experience all-around. I arrived about 10 minutes early, checked in with the hostess, and found a spot at the bar. Unsure of what I ... read morewanted to drink, I asked the bartender if he had anything similar to a Manhattan up his sleeve. Indeed, he did. I always consider having knowledgeable, innovative bartenders who can deviate from the menu and concoct delicious libations the mark of a fantastic bar. When my party arrived, we were promptly seated and asked the waitress for a good wine recommendation, based on the fact that we were all going to be ordering red meat. She delivered and the wine was fantastic at a reasonable price. The ambiance is trendy, but not intimidating. It makes you feel cozy and relaxed without being plain or homely. The food was fantastic. I really enjoyed my steak -- it was cooked to perfection. The seasonable vegetables were predictable, but the accompanying sauce was amazing. Recommendation: get appetizers. The poutine (french-fries covered in cheese and gravy... mmm) was really fantastic. I'm sure that every Canadian here will be quick to tell me about how it can't compare to such-and-such place back home in Canada. Unfortunately for fellow American poutine-lovers, we aren't in Canada. The poutine manages to be non-greasy comfort-food, and delicious all around. Granted, there are no cheese curds (they just use melted cheese), but I think I can overlook it based on its tastiness. The service was friendly and attentive. The prices were high, but not outrageous considering the quality of both the food and the experience.Recommended for:.Comment.almost 3 years ago. ReportJason Flegel
I've never been to 25 Lusk, but this is another restaurant not too far away-- one of my favs downtown.
