i went to Town Hall for a special anniversary dinner about 4 months ago and sat outside...we were ignored for about 20 minutes and had to go BACK inside and remind the staff that we were outside and ready to order..the food took too long...was served by a different waitress then the one that took our belated order, then had to wait for a 2nd round of drinks...the food was average at best,and WAY overpriced and when we were finished, we then had to go BACK inside AGAIN to get the check (which was served to us by a third wait person...too many good restaurants in SF to waste your time and money here...it's too bad also, because i live right down the street and i really wanted to refer people there, but i obviously can't do that. Much ado about nothing
I really wanted to like Town Hall. My friend had raved about it for weeks. When I finally went, I thought it was..... Good, not great, but good. The service was a little spotty. Server forgot our drinks and there was a long time gap between our appetizers and drinks. The food was tasty, not mindblowingly so but solid. I may try it again and see if the kitchen/servers have a better night.
I had the rabit, which was cooked 4 ways (all good ways) and my friend had the duck. Both meats were cooked perfectly. A little on the sweet side, but not sweet in a bad way. It was sweet in a good way if you like sweet-salty foods. The space was nice as well, but didn't have a ton of personality - the unfinished brick walls made it feel comfortable, but the lighting could have been more interesting to finish off the perfect mood.
Town Hall is located south of Market Street, close to the financial district of San Francisco.
I went there with a group of friends in late May, and found the experience to be very enjoyable all around. Excellent / simple cuisine, a good wine list, and a really nice atmosphere (dressy casual).
We had a few orders of the fried chicken (moist and full of flavor), a great jalepeno cheese/egg bruscetta, and very reasonably priced wine (Rex Hill Pinot).
Service was good, but not exceptional....but I am not one who enjoys exceptional sevice as defined by the industry.
Easy access to the freeway for the non city dwellers.
i've been wanting to try town hall forever. it's been showing up on best of lists since it opened a couple of years ago. i went with my bf and another couple and we pretty much ate ourselves silly. we ordered 4 starters for the table. the standouts were a delicate tempura of stuffed squash blossoms and some incredible veal meatballs on a bed of mashed potatoes.
main courses followed including a tender duck with gingered wild rice, and steak in an addictive savory sweet sauce that we mopped up with bread when we were done. wine was a very nice pinot noir from oregon. we enjoyed dinner so much, that we sort of overdid it on the dessert--ordering 4 desserts to share among the table. the desserts were huge, and not quite up to the same standards as the dinner & starters.
the atmosphere here was wonderful: warm, social, and pleasantly busy. we had no problem carrying on conversation, even though the restaurant was full. highly recommended.
I came here highly recommended for dinner between Christmas and New Year's. The location is decent and the service was okay; however, I felt as though the food could have been better. The place was somewhat empty because of the holidays, so I don't know if the kitchen wasn't firing on all cylinders but our food came out slightly overdone/dry, and with way too much salt on it. The staff was friendly but not exactly attentive.
