"As first-timers to this restaurant and to the SF Jazz Center, we are delighted we discovered both! We traveled via BART to/from the East Bay and had no car-parking worries nor did we have to rush to get from dinner to the theatre. The cocktails were really good and the entire meal delicious -- even the dessert. I appreciated the tasty "small plates" so that we were not too full to enjoy the rest of our evening."

"I hadn't realized that South had changed their menu to Mexican tapas. The food just isn't as delicious and satisfying as it was, and I thought the value was pretty disappointing. At least when I spent a little more money on prior visits I was eating delicious comfort food that would really fill you up. I thought the spare rib, however, had excellent flavor! But there wasn't anything else of note."

"The menu at South changes often and creates easy conversation as delicate and beautifully delicious dishes appear. The cocktails always please as does the cinnamon spiced coffee. Drinks can accompany guests into the music venues at the Jazz Center."

"I thought this restaurant was wonderful. We went only because we had SFJazz tickets and it was raining, but turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Excellent cocktails, and extensive wine list. We had meatballs, butter lettuce salad, seared trout, and slow cooked pork. All were excellent, the pork was a favorite. And we had a dessert that was like a Mexican pot de creme, dark chocolate - yum. Nice atmosphere, I think the floor-to-ceiling windows open in the nice weather. And no complaints about the service, although we were there early in the evening."

"This was our second time at South, and we were even more impressed than the perfectly solid experience the first time. The nice and spicy margarita was tasty and strong, the rye Manhattan well done, the two glasses of a lovely rye that followed were also nice (one in plastic to take to the performance honoring Gil Scott Herron); the potato chips to start were perfect, the guacamole had a kick, fresh, and accompanied by warm, crisp tortilla chips; the hanger steak (substituting for the short ribs on the menu) was excellent with an onion marmalade; the steelhead trout and roe were exceptional; for dessert, an amazing leche cake because it was not too sweet and a nice, dense chocolate pudding. Service with a trainee being supervised was very gracious, nicely paced (but, be careful, the orders come out of the kitchen almost immediately, and we staggered the ordering), and informative. Tables are not so close that you can hear the conversation, and the room has plenty of ambient noise."

"Came here before the SFJazz show. So convenient. Service was very good. Menu is limited. Food was not very good; little flavor. The portions are too small for the price. There are so many really good restaurants in this neighborhood which are close-by the venue that we will not come back."

"We were loving the more traditional menu that was at South at SF Jazz and dined there numerous times.
The new menu is smaller and not as diverse and the dishes are smaller and some not to our taste. Not a good place for a dinner. Maybe better for drinks and appetizers.

"After reading terrible reviews we decided to risk South before a show. Cocktails: Delicosa was a pomegranate margarita that lived up to its name, Manhattan was okay; potato chips crisp and abundant, what a treat: guacamole had a nice kick, fresh, crisp thick tortilla chips; meatballs in appetizer portion (3 small) were tasty, not as good as Penrose in Oakland, but fine; Opah in large tapas size was perfect with zingy and sweet mango salsa; pot of chocolate cinnamon flavored with whipped cream and a few toasted pecans was very nice; after-dinner drink was bourbon straight up masterly selected by helpful bartender: no-hurry service was attentive - will go again before a show"

"Very tasty tapas, and unbelievably scrumptious Tres Leches cake! I wish the food selection contained a few more items, since there are some foods I do not eat (red meat, for example). For me, there were very few items to choose from -- but they all turned out to be good."

"Lovely specialty cocktail selection.
Small plates were good; however the plate our server told us was a bigger portion than the others really wasn't.
Great flavors.
Lovely staff.
Can't wait for another night out to come back!

"We went here because it was convenient for us to make an early jazz show. I figured any Charles Phan restaurant had to be good, right? Unfortunately, wrong. It is glorified taco fare. Some of the dishes were okay, some really mediocre. Unless you really need convenience skip it."

"Loved the black chickpea soup. They had a problem w slow service but didn't charge for one dish because of it. That hasn't been true other times."

"We went to South pre-opera for it's convenient location. Food was tasty and well-prepared, if a bit pricy. Menu is small and pretty meaty. We had three salads, two desserts and a coffee for $70+. Service was good."

"Amidst the hustle and bustle of Hayes Valley, South is a good spot for a drink or quick dinner before the show at SFJAZZ Center, located in the same building. South offers an interesting cocktail menu and wine list. Service is attentive and very gracious. The waiter offered a taste of wine I was considering before pouring a full glass, and I always appreciate that!"
