Orson Restaurant, Bar & Lounge
Wine Bar, Lounge, American
- Chef Falkner wows visitors at Orson with updated bar bites like her duck fat fries.
- The desserts here can't be missed! One standout is the delicate Rosebud Remastered dish: a rose creme brulee (less brulee than a very feathery mousse-like cloud) buoyed by pistachio and chili-saffron.
- duckfat fries. margarita. check. check. you can now die and go to heaven.
- Kind of a hidden gem in SoMA, similar atmosphere to District or 25 Lusk, but spacious and never full. Happy Hour Friday til 7, no food specials though.
- SF Weekly's Best of Winner 2010 - Editorial Pick - BEST UPSCALE PIZZA
- They have bacon pizza.
- best brunch in the city. never a wait, great food and bottomless mimosas!
- They're never open on Monday.
- got reservations pretty easily through open table. food was above average for the cost, the service was solid, and the music was pretty damn good too!
- I just had the worst $11 martini that you could imagine. The best part? It was in a novelty 4 oz glass.
- pizza with figs & blue cheese = tasty
- Not sure how there's a deal here considering they're only open for private events now...
- Don't order the short ribs. No flavor.
- Get the cupcakes after weekend brunch!
- Orson exists in a former nightclub and still gives off some of that vibe. Try the Caesar salad with pop rocks.
- Found spinach macaroni as Yuck. Try it and dish on it at http://dishonit.com
- Skip the specialty cocktails. Tiny, expensive, and not tasty.
- Breakfast of Champions for dessert. Heavenly. Make sure you don't drive here on a game night at AT&T Park. Parking can be absolute hell.
- Speak to Carl about the specials, he's the man!
- Elizabeth Falkner's kitchen is quietly serving up the tastiest, most technically polished expressions of Cal-cuisine pizza in San Francisco.
