How would you rate 1300 on Fillmore?
Brunch food is disappointing. Music is fantastic!
The Benedict was bitter and tangy but not in a good way and the biscuits and gravy were pretty bland in general.
But the band was soulful and fun.
This restaurant is located right next to Yoshi's. The decor in this place is so fancy! I came here with my boyfriend and his college honor society. While the service was a little spotty, I think serving 100+ college students isn't any server's idea of a good time and can forgive them for that. The food itself was really good, although I prefer the savory to the sweet which is a surprise since I normally have a sweet tooth.
I have been here a couple of times for the happy hour and the food and drinks offered for the happy hour price have been delicious and reasonable. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable.
Food's a tad overpriced for what you get. My kids think their fried chicken isn't any better than the buttermilk fried chicken I make at home. I love their mashed potatoes 'tho. The chive biscuits were hard, I can do better.
I thought the shrimp and grits was OK, that and a salad was a filling enough meal for me. I've definitely had better shrimp & grits (Eats, in Las Vegas makes a spectacular one) elsewhere.
Atmosphere is really nice and our waitress was a gem.
I'd consider a return visit only if I wanted to dine somewhere else besides Yoshii's if I were in the area for a show/concert. Otherwise, I might not make a special trip here for the food.
The place is a classy joint to get upscale soul food but the food doesn't match the elegant and sexy decor. The food was not so flavorful and fresh as we thought it would be. But this is still a sexy date spot to sip on whisky and even catch some great live music.
We came here on a Sunday afternoon for the gospel brunch. We were celebrating my friend's birthday and had reservations for a group of about 15 people. We started off with the bottomless mimosas. The staff does an excellent job of making sure that your glass is always full. I cannot rave enough about the service. I found the wait staff to be so friendly and on top of it. What made the experience even better was the live music. The live band sang old soul and Motown music. They did a great job of engaging the crowd and even had some people at our table sing on the microphone. The whole experience was really fun and I can't wait to go back.
GOSPEL BRUNCH REVIEW:
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. I love randomly finding awesome restaurants.
I was walking around Japantown one Sunday, trying to figure out where to eat for brunch. Then I saw 1300 on Fillmore across the street and spontaneously decided to check out the place. As soon as I entered, I got super excited because 1) the place is well decorated (I really like the lounge with all the pictures!!), 2) super talented musicians were singing and playing gospel songs (I was so entranced; I didn't start eating until they finished), and 3) there was a table open right in front of the music. Service, atmosphere, decor, and just everything seemed so great that I doubted that the food could be just as amazing. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised by the yummmmmy food (I ordered the eggs benedict and my friend got the rib eye burger)... THIS PLACE IS PERFECT; THEY GOT EVERYTHING RIGHT. I'm coming back for the gospel brunch for sure, and I want to try dinner here tooooo.
Let's face it. The three stars are for the waiter, who did a great job! Kudos to him for being attentive, prompt and friendly. The food was nothing out of the ordinary and absolutely overpriced!! The cocktails were good, but nothing special. The okra appetizer was fried way too long and dripping with grease. The steak had pretty much no flavor, the veggies had something crunchy in them, which I am not sure if I want to know what it was and the dessert beignets weren't any better than Olive Garden's Zeppole.
I've had a lot of fried chicken in my life but this is one of the best places to get fried chicken in SF. I got the following:BFC Two pieces of our secret recipe fried chicken with fries, cole slaw & cream biscuit CHICKEN IS SO AND ! Sprinkle with some hot sauce- NOMS.
Is a great experience . The food is delicious. Plus I worked repairing the place. The chef is a great guy.
Love this place, the food is great!
Decent food, but a little pricey! I spent nearly $300 on two dinners two appetizers and few drinks!
Came for brunch. The price is absurdly high for what you get, but the atmosphere is nice. Be prepared: in addition to tip you will pay $6 per person (not per table) for the music.
If you like jazz, please patronize this place! The jazz scene in the Fillmore has been declining and this place is one of the last vestiges of the great genre. Nice place to take a date ;)
$$$$ but worth the experience. If you decide to have dinner while the band plays make sure to get there early enough and sit in lounge area. The band adds to the experience because they are very good. So far everything on menus is good. Even if you are not going to eat a full meal, order some appetizers and drinks while you enjoy the music.
Damn fine food! Dreams haunt me of the greens and fried chicken. A wonderful place to splurge & celebrate a special event, or make it the special event!
Nice atmosphere, and very respectful and cheerful waiter; however, for the price the food quality left much to be desired.
Gospel brunch is festive and fun, even if the music isn't strictly gospel
Progressively getting worse in service and meal presentation. Heavy on the salt, soaked in oil and even food served cold.
I called 1300 on Filmore to make dinner reservations for a party of ten. Unfortunately, my phone conversation with Lisa was rather unpleasant. There were a few questions I had about the seating, music, cake/corkage fees and etc. Lisa was extremely rude and impatient. I felt like the conversation was rushed and negative energy exuded from the call. I suggested to call back at a convenient time but was put hold so that she could help another customer and then Chris finished the call for her. I don't have a problem with being place on hold. My issue is her lack of customer service skills and failing to explain what they can accommodate.
It's unfortunate because this would have been my first time dinning here and I was looking forward to the food/music. Due to the negative phone encounter, I will look for another location.
Note: this is my first time rating a business.
So again I want to make sure that the reader of this review understands my high level of severe disappointment!! I had a sirloin steak with mushrooms onions figs and a sauce called liquid gold. I couldn't have been happier with my choice it was sooo beyond good.
The drinks were very well done, but the food was priced way to high for what you got. Also, some of the food was very bland, i.e. the cheesecake was creamy but there was no flavour, and several items on my plate and my wife's were burnt or overcooked. Some food was good, but really the redeeming factor were the drinks.
Beautiful venue, a full bar and some of the best soul food I have ever eaten in San Francisco. The rib-eye steak was amazing!
I really enjoyed the first half of my trip to 1300. Apps and drinks at the bar were brilliant. That hurricane was everything.
We enjoyed dinner as well. We tried a little a bit of everything as we had such a large group.
The restaurant and ambience are amazing. It's perfect for a special night out.
I attended a private gathering at this restaurant last evening and it was a delightful experience. The staff was competent and friendly. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Oh, and the food? Well, it was fresh, perfectly seasoned and nicely presented. The fried chicken skewers were heaven on a stick. Well done and thank you for the lovely evening!
I found this restaurant to be a bit more expensive than its quality justified, but it was a nice meal with well prepared food nonetheless
Amazing brunch : tasty food and great music (jazzy and blues vibes)
Here for a private event and the dishes we were served were just ok.. the steak was overdone and mac and cheese very watery and not delicious. The cornbeard was good and staff was friendly but I don't think I'd come back
Environment was laid back and loungesque. Food was pretty terrible... "cornbread crusted mac n cheese" = blue box + hot dog chunks; the fries were the only redeeming quality.
The service was awesome 5 stars for service. We had the Catfish with Jambalaya, the Fried Chicken and Fat fries.....the only thing that was ok were the fries.The drinks were good. Very dissatisfied with the food especially because it cost alot for food we did not enjoy. Not worth it...
Great soulful upscale vibe. Lots if space. Cozy n romantic. Best for two or more. Food is small portions ,good but priceyyy. Great location, parking lot is next door on Eddy street
This place is ok if you have 3+ hours to spend here and is absolutely not hungry. Waited 40min for dessert and probably only 1 person working in the kitchen because the place was practically empty so i could not see any reason it would take that long. You would think the fried chicken would be good since its their specialty but it came out burnt. Definitely would NEVER come back.
Clean and intimate it is a rental hall with a great staff . They make certain one's need is satisfied
Loved the Sunday jazz brunch. Shouldn't be missed. Good cocktails
Pretty tasty food, nice decor. Little pricey.
I love this store. Great produce with samples of almost everything Plus they represent with the Jewish foods during the holidays. Best Latkes (potato pancakes) i've ever tasted Friendly, knowledgeable staff
The airport location for this place does not display prices on the menu. I watched the bar person make the cocktail I ordered and he left out some of the ingredients listed on the menu. It also takes a very long time to get the attention of servers.
Don't go to this restaurant. I found an hair in the salad and the chicken wasn't fried, wasn't deep fried... It was burned, the crust was brown going to black.... I don't want to think at the oil in which that chicken was fried!!!! Don't go there!!!
Good life 4LIFE FILLMOE AKA REAL G
The chicken sandwich was good! A little $$ but what do you expect in an airport..
Yes it's everything I expected. Great show
Always a great experience when I dined here
Home dinner place very small but great food
Excellent food and excellent service. The ambiance is amazing. Give it a try you won’t be sorry. The shrimp and grits are my favorite! Hope to see you guys stay open for years to come.
Location on google maps is wrong. They are in SFO airport now according to their website.
Went to Airport Location. Unsatisfied of the quality and TEN DOLLARS for a plate of stewed carrots is IMHO a whole new level of "airport price".
Very disappointed by the behavior a supposedly host named "Edward" if that is his true name. This facility getting this low rate not because of its food, but only for unprofessional behavior of the said host, to be very impolite, aggressive, and proud himself to be such a person. This is way beyond our community's accepted standards.
I called the manager "Aaron" and he apologized for the conduct of the said person. at least Aaron the manager was a very nice gentleman and promised to investigate the matter.
Poor service, low quality food for high price
Great customer service.
Worst service ever! Waited 30 min for a beer, my kids 25 min for fries and the check took another 20 min!
I’d like to share a story about the service.
When we sat down at our table and had a little chat with our waiter, it was obvious he couldn’t be living in the country for that long. There is nothing wrong with that, I do too live and work in a foreign country and needed to learn the local language as well. I ordered a glass of whiskey with coke. I am not an alcohol expert, just enjoy the taste of any whiskey and coke mixed together.
I was having the second drink when the waiter asked me how I am liking my drink, and told him it’s nice. And the funny story begins, because he told me this exactly: “remember the whiskey makers”. And I immediatley was imagining the hard working people who are responsible for my yummy drink 😂 and then he saw on my face that I just don’t get it. And when he said this is the brand’s name I told him oh okay, I don’t know this brand. And he asked what’s my primary language, because he can tell that I don’t speak good english and he thought I am french. How rude is that!!!! And stereotype!!!
When we were paying the bill by card he asked my boyfriend how much tip he wants to add.... give us some privacy about it dude.
2 stars because of the humiliation, the food was not bad but nothing special.
To expansive, 1 burger and beer 45$
It was actually great! I got the catfish fish, and while the catfish was only just cooked to standards, it was the rest of the dish that surprised me! Full of flavor and interesting combinations. Great staff and excellent service, definitely an 8 out of 10, only because the catfish was burnt and not southern perfection.
The prices and atmosphere suggested a certain level of eating experience, but the reality was very disappointing. I wish I had read the reviews beforehand.
I waited more than five minutes to be acknowledged, despite the fact that I was the only one waiting and there were several available tables. That was just the beginning of the long waits. The server herself was friendly, but I think she had far too many tables to attend to.
This is a place with $20 hamburgers, so that gives you an idea of the price range, which I was fine with. However, none of the drinks/cocktails have any prices listed, which seems bold. I ordered a vodka and ginger ale at a mystery price, only to be told some time later that they were out of ginger ale. This place gives the impression of a trendy pub, but they're out of a staple bar beverage?
I ordered the soup of the day which sounded delicious. However, I never got the chance to find out if it was delicious or not because I was later informed that there was no more soup. It seems incredible that they would be out of one of their few menu items at 12:30pm.
Severely disappointed by now, I opted for a side salad. It was simple and tasty (no choice of dressing) but it took 19 minutes to get after ordering it. It was just a side salad.
As I was writing this review, I overheard the server tell the customers at the next table that the restaurant was out of chicken and waffles, one of their signature "southern inspired" items.
So, if you have a LOT of time to kill, and you have a good amount of money to spend on items that may or may not be available, I suppose this could be the place for you.
I'm giving two stars solely for the server's friendly service despite the restaurant's shortcomings.
Food is just ok. Ordered a cheese and mushroom omelet. It came and had the left over bacon bits in it from the last one they cooked. Cause for concern? It was not busy so not really any excuse not to wipe the pan clean before cooking. The atmosphere was great.would be good just to grab a couple drinks before your flight. Not a great vegetarian place.
Food is simple but good for airport food. Not overcooked and flavorful. Service is a bit slow, plan for it. A burger took 15-20 to come out.
Service delayed more than one hour for a sandwich, and all other customers were in the same conditions. Sorry that I didn’t left earlier.... food is not good is another airport food...
One of the waitresses was very sorry for the delay and trying to do her best... but all others prefer to hide them selves at kitchen rather than face angry hungry customers
I bought 4 of their less expensive burgers for my group to go, bringing into the plane.
It was $95 and they were nearly inedible, none of us finished eating them. They tasted like charcoal, not in a good way. It was as if they seasoned the patty with ashes instead of salt.
+1 star just for the fries and friendly bartender.
But I felt royally ripped off and recommend you don't order food to go here. I had no recourse to complain, otherwise I absolutely would have.
DON’T GO!!! This is the worst airport restaurant I have ever been to. Where do I start. The service was awful, no silverware, no water, completely cheerless staff, hiding in the back as much as possible. My husband initially ordered a fried chicken sandwich and was told - 10 minutes after he ordered - that it would take 50 minutes to make (remember, this is an airport). He then was given a menu and the waitress took off before he could order a burger, another 5-10 minutes. I ordered a salad with salmon which was also not available. Our drinks also arrived 15-20 minutes after ordering, a cardinal sin in restauranteuring. Now on to the food: terrible. My husbands burger was beyond burnt, arriving 20 minutes after my salad, which had no dressing and I’m praying the nasty shrimp on it don’t make me sick on our 10-hour flight.
Went there around 11pm or so not knowing they are closed since there are still people sitting in there. No one bother to tell me they are closed, so i sit down at a table like an idiot for 5 mins, and another person came in and went to the bar and the bar tender said they are closed. So I had to walk out too.
The staff was attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was nice and welcoming. Food is well, it was fresh, perfectly seasoned and nicely presented. I couldn't...read this and 1323 more
