I feel guilty for removing two stars off the "bat" for being your typical overly-priced airport restaurant but this place missed the mark and cost me a pretty penny. The husband and I were traveling home and decided on a sit-down dinner to kill time during a lay-away. We chose to be picky and kept walking through the airport to our gate while eliminating options as we went along. Eventually we landed here after taking a quick peep at the menu and saw they had comfy booth tables.
Service was slow and the food was decent. However, the final bill of $60 between the two of us (after not really leaving full) just plain hurt. A side salad of mere spring mix, a few small tomatoes, and dressing was $7 and our soft drinks were $5 each.
This experience taught us a strong lesson to avoid eating at an airport and save the money for our next trip. This is a decent spot to snag a quick drink but head back towards the food court for cheaper food options.
I came here for a quick breakfast since it was mostly covered under Priority Pass. While the service was okay, the food was pretty atrocious. I hardly ever go that far to downrate a restaurant, especially if it was free, but it really was that bad; and on top of that...it was really quite overpriced.
I ordered the Breakfast by the Bay, which is the simplest breakfast to make - eggs, chicken apple sausage, hash browns, and toast. Every piece of that meal was lukewarm. The sausage was still a bit hard, as if it wasn't cooked well enough from a frozen state. The hash browns were well underdone, with the inside being soft and starchy.
My wife got the the Avocado Toast and when it came out, we both looked at each other like what is this. The thicc omelette was overcooked and dry and was essentially a gigantic block of egg on top of a toast. And the avocado was clearly a guac spread, not from an actual avocado.
Both dishes were way overpriced at ~$15 and the fruit juices which came in a small tumbler was $4. Overall, a very unsatisfying experience and think I'd rather get a small pastry at the Peet's down the way instead next time.
I usually can't really complain about some free food, since I came in as a Priority Pass holder, but if I were to judge this as I would any other restaurant... the food was really quite bad.
I ordered the garlic fries and the turkey chili with cornbread. Normally any fries to me are good fries-- I'm not picky when it comes to fried potatoes-- but these ones were absolutely DRENCHED in oil. I get it, fries can be greasy, but these fries were hardly fries at all, more of a skinny potato shoelace bathed in grease. Not crispy, almost no garlic flavor, and I could squeeze the oil out of the fry between my fingers.
The turkey chili was also pretty disappointing. The chili itself wasn't too bad, though they definitely seasoned it generously with salt, but the cornbread was the burned corner piece. Maybe I just got unlucky, but I couldn't even stab my fork through the burnt side, so I ended up scraping what was edible into the chili and eating that.
The service wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good, either. The waiter was pretty cold and brisk.
Overall, the first restaurant that I really can't recommend to anyone.
They supposed to open at 5:00am but it opened at 5:30am. It is inconvenient for an early flyer since the boarding time is about 5:40am and I cannot make it.
I have spent my fair share of time here and stop by every time I am in SFO. Great location with a big bar area to sit at. The staff are usually very friendly and beers are always nice and cold. Overall a great place to spend sometime before boarding your plane. I ordered a dinosaur kale salad which was pretty good.
