  • The menu at Maven pairs every single dish with a cocktail and beer/wine option, like the tremendous Global Warming (a gin/sake/lemon cocktail topped with a floating absinthe sorbet).
  • "Rhum" is cane sugar based whereas "rum" is molasses based. Fun fact.
  • Whether you're in for a burger and a cocktail or a five-course extravaganza with drink pairings, you'll leave satisfied, and the buzzing energy of the dining room is hard to resist. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Communal tables, huge living wall, and culinary cocktails may be everything that's hip in San Francisco dining right now, but Maven is, above all, a great neighborhood restaurant. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Chinatown Duck Sliders... so good!
  • While youre waiting at the bar with your International Mistress (a heady mix of amaro, lemon, mezcal, orgeat, & grapefruit) & some Chinatown duck sliders, theres no other place youd rather be.
  • Upon seeing the abnormal size of the ice cubes I recommended my drink get checked out by his doctor.
  • try the Global Warming.. absinthe sorbet!
  • The drinks are yummy, the food...not so much.
  • This place is known for sliders and cocktails. Choose the option starter + cocktail and you will be really happy. Cocktails are more likely authentic than modern, it is important to understand.
  • Not a great selection of food. Some of the small bites are good, like the duck sliders. Cocktails are fantastic! My favorite bar in the Lower Haight for overall bar and cocktails.
  • Good cocktails, mediocre food, horrid service.
  • Maven has it's napkin game down.
  • Duck sliders!
  • Kate = best bartender ever.
  • They make an absinthe sorbet that comes in two different cocktails: Global Warming and Death in the Afternoon. Or try to order the sorbet on its own!
  • What Ales You is refreshing!
  • If you want the couch by the fireplace upstairs, make a reservation for it (especially on weekends).
  • Get some Hibiki whiskey here. One of the few places to offer it.
  • Get your whiskey with large ice and watch people eat from the mezzanine. And don't drop your silverware.
