    It was so hard to choose from a small but perfect list of appetizers and entrées. The bourbon and whiskey options was endless. I had the best old fashioned I've ever had, twice!

    Ambience and food was excellent! It felt like they had the air conditioning on and there weren't many diners there so it felt cold! Our server was nice but didn't check in to see how the food was and we said it was my partner's birthday when we made the reservation but she didn't say happy birthday or offer a candle or anything special when the dessert was brought out. She did offer the choice of a glass of sparkling wine or dessert when we were seated because of her birthday.

    Went here with coworkers when I was in town. We were seated out on the patio around the fire, which was cute, but the food was so meh. I had the pork belly and it was all fat with a weird vinegar taste? The server only came by once and said it would be hard for him to split checks. There were only 4 of us and we each ordered one drink and one item. Just overall, very meh. My glass of Sancerre was $32, which is just bonkers. The only way I’d go here again is if it was for a conference and I had no choice.

    My husband and I went to Dirty Habit before a Broadway SF show at the Orpheum. This place is anazing, I wish SF wasn’t so sketchy and it wasn’t so far from where we live in the Tri-Valley area. The ambiance gives off the perfect date night vibe. The service was the right amount of attention from friendly people. The cocktail menu is extensive and both types of Old Fashioneds we tried were delicious. We had a bunch of apps - shishito peppers, cauliflower, lumpia and beet salad - all great. I think my favorite item though was the caramel popcorn ice cream dessert. I never order dessert but this sounded interesting and wow, it was great. We’ll definitely come back although it’s way past time for SF to clean up Market Street because the numbers of people coming down here in the evening is almost non-existent.

    We booked 2 weeks in advance and asked for fire place seating. Was sat in the very back by the door and was not told anything about jewelry vendor being there like we had been told at reservation set up.
    Dirty HabitResponded on 16 February 2024
    Hello, We're truly sorry to hear about your recent experience at Dirty Habit. We understand that your seating arrangement and the lack of information about our jewelry vendor during your reservation was not up to our usual standards. Due to the heavy rain, we were unable to seat for the fireplace which is located outdoors until much later in the evening. We assure you that this is not reflective of our usual service. We're taking your feedback seriously and will address this issue to prevent any similar issues in the future. We hope you'll give us another chance to provide you with the dining experience you deserve. Best regards, The Management Team

    The food was delicious. Drinks are fun and so good. Steak a little bit tough on my fish. Do not leave without trying dessert. Buttered popcorn sundae is ridiculous and I will return just for that. Milk bread with yummy butter-divine. Sweet potato gnocchi-ooh la la!

    I visited on a rainy SF day for date night, went an hour early than our reservation right at open and was given an open choice of seating. Our original reservation for outdoor fireplace was cancelled due to the rain. Great food and drinks, they still had holiday drinks (a plus for me) but were not able to accommodate something from their online menu (sad for hubby). Shrimp lumpia and Duck fried rice was amazing. Would definitely go again.

    Came here on a Thursday afternoon between Christmas and New Year's, so it was a little quieter than usual. To access The Dirty Habit, you have to be buzzed into a hotel lobby where they give you a key card to take the elevators to the 5th floor. Upon entry, there is a beautiful ambiance with soft lighting and really cool decor. Very modern and somewhat steampunk(?). There are several seating areas, a few inside...wooden booths, or another area with leather couches, and then there is the patio or terrace that is 75% covered with heaters and lovely, tranquil fountains, and bistro string lights. The other part of the patio opens up to a nice view of the cityscape. We were very comfortable under a space heater. Some people were even in t-shirts (in December). Our server, Sierra, was awesome. Actually, everyone who came to the table gave us great, thoughtful service. Sierra was professional, personable and warm. Efficient, and made charming conversation. I could tell she made everyone feel taken care of and at ease. We ordered the Potato Gnocchi with Mushrooms, the Duck Fried Rice, Shishito peppers (ended up ordering 2), and the Japanese Milk Bread. The servings were generous and every dish was really delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at The Dirty Habit and can't wait to go back.

    We had a very nice time here, we wanted to find a place to have a drink and appetizer before dinner. The setting is beautiful and at the time we were there it wasn’t busy or noisy at all. Our only disappointment was we thought we would be able to see the sunset but the outside patio is enclosed, blocking the view of the skyline. Drinks and food were excellent and staff very friendly!

    Most of the food was tasty. The service wasn’t great, we waited a long time to speak to the waitress and she didn’t do a great job of selling the menu. I will give her grace as it looked like she was handing the entire restaurant by herself, with maybe two bussers and a bartender. Decor is very cool and it’s definitely a place to check out.

    This restaurant is a little funky because it’s in a refurbished hotel but we sat outside on the rooftop, could have done with one or two more portable heaters but the food made up for the chill. The food was excellent! It’s meant to be served family style so don’t expect regulars plated dinners. We had the gnocchi, cauliflower, lamb ribs and chicken all excellent! my personal favorite was the Duck Fried Rice!!! Good place for the under 50 age group.
