The room is noisy, like when you have a party at home and everybody ends up in the kitchen. The mix of folk is fun, the bartenders friendly and make a great martini or negroni, and the food is just like mom's only better! This is a great place to take a group of friends or a single visitor. The menu is diverse, just like the customers, pasta, burgers, chops, fish, - something for every taste. Service is just right, there when you want it, never intrusive. The fire lit patio is like a cookout in your back yard, without having to deal with the clean up. Just as comfortable for a single diner as a big group. My personal favorites from the menu are the pasta dishes, mac and cheese that will make you forget the stuff in the box and even make you question the home made stuff your mom produced, liguini with mushrooms that is the perfect balance between pasta and fungi - what's not to love? The location means you are just a short walk from the Castro or the Mission so it is the perfect place to start a night of clubbing with some great food and drink.
Home is loud, boisterous, and the most successful new restaurant of the decade. The early mix of good American food at low prices has been watered down as the prices have increased to a bit more than value, but the crowds are fun, the bar is full, and Travis is the best waiter in San Francisco since Edsel Ford Fong in the 70s. Park in their lot and enjoy the patio with it's fireplance.
I visited the Union St. location and was well impressed. Everydish was done extremely well and the ingredients used are top notch. Service was very good and attention to detail was above expectations for the type of establishment.
Side dishes like breakfast potatoes were fluffy, crisp, and flavorful. Not soggy or mushy. The Mac & Cheese really is top notch as somebody else said. I'm not sure I can think of anything bad about it, besides that it does not score high on the value scale. Then again, every other restaurant in the neighborhood is comparably priced or more.
Front window/patio seating is excellent for people watching.
I sampled the turkey dinner with all of the fixings as well as the meatloaf. Although everything was good, it sort of left me wanting a bit more after my previous breakfast visit. Our food was not piping hot, appeared to have been sitting out for a bit under the lamp. We also expected some sort of bread, but maybe they don't dish that out normally. We noticed our server was quite buy, although the support staff (for water) was very attentive. I tried the Chocolate molten cake with home made cookies and cream ice cream. While not the hugest serving, it was really really good. Definitely worth the money.
My friend and I were looking for a BBQ going on.
We followed our noses into Home as they were cooking outside.
To make a long story short, everything was overpriced ($6 for a hot dog & 1 side), too small portions, and unorganized (order here, tel that person, order drinks here, sit down).
The prix fixe at Home is an incredible deal. You get the daily special (no choices) of salad, entree, dessert and glass of house white or red for $10.99. The only catch is you need to be seated by 6 p.m., but I believe the special is available every night of the week. Food is pretty tasty and the atmosphere is fun and homey, but still hip. Grab some friends when you need to catch an early dinner (for example, if you're going to a concert afterwards), or just when you feel like saving a little money.
I love this restaurant. One of the few places that you can get really good meat loaf in the city. Can be crowded and noisy at times, but if you're jonesing for a meal your mama used to make you, this is your place.
There are a few great places to eat within just 2 blocks of Market & Church and this is one of them.
Personal preference if you prefer Home over Chow, but for me its Home without any hesitation.
Friendly, Fun, Good Quality Food in a Casual Space.
If you can get here early enough try the.
Chef�s Early Bird Special - $10.99 for a prix fix Menu with a glass of wine served from 5-6pm.
If here on a Tuesday maybe the Chicken Pot Pie.
Other suggestions being the
Duck and vegetable spring rolls
The Macaroni & Cheese
Niman Ranch meatloaf, buttermilk smashed potatoes
Flat Iron Steaks
And consider ending it with a fresh Sorbet or Desert
This is also a great place for Breakfast, Lunch & Brunch (Sa & Su 10:am � 2:00pm)
Home is a good place to put in to your restaurant rotation. They specialize in comfort food such as Macaronni & Cheese (which is soooo good), Pot Roast, pork chops, etc. The wine list is a little thin, maybe 20 bottles?
