Butterfly offers the perfect mix of food, atmosphere, an amazing California Wine List and great decor.

" Narsai David of KCBS said," Butterfly is a happening place". Best seafood soup, I have ever had!" A few suggestions Clams and Mussels, Salmon and Strawberry Rolls, Kalua Pig in Butter Lettuce Cups, Crispy Fried Whole Fish, and Banana Bread Pudding for dessert.

"Wonderful evening! Great food and wine and the choices of things to eat was perfect! Not too many things. Our server was attentive but not overly so. We sat in the window by the water. It was a lovely time!"

"Outstanding menu! Favorites were the amazing chicken wing appetizers and the tuna poke. The monk fish was delicious and my butterfly chicken was as well. Will definitely be back. Drinks from the bar were made great and our waiter really knew the menu well and was very professional. Great experience for our family!"

"We've been coming here for the past couple of years and have always been very happy with the food and service. Everything is prepared correctly with a nice variety of items to choose from. Service is always excellent. Highly recommend trying this place out if you haven't already. Beautiful views of the bay through floor to ceiling windows top off the experience."

"The only thing I can say about this place was that everything was competent. Maybe I'm jaded, or maybe my expectations are off - because even though nothing was wrong, I just didn't find the place that amazing. We started with a calamari appetizer that was good, but not great. I had the braised lamb shank - and it was good.
Let's put it this way - if anyone suggested that we meet up at Butterfly, my wife and I wouldn't turn them down ... But we wouldn't plan on going there on our own."

"As recently as two years ago, Butterfly was a happening place and hard to get a reservation to. On my recent visit to SF, I was anxious to go there and surprised that on a Saturday night and holiday weekend, every time was available. When I got there ( at 8pm) the place was dead. The food had change and was lackluster at best. The place seemed unkept or run down. Frankly, it won't be there next year if it doesn't get it together. Too bad too since it is a great location along the water."

"We had a group of six for dinner. It was a reunion for two families who had not seen each other in 19 years. Needless to say, we had a lot to talk about! The waitress was completely understanding and did not rush us.
The food was delicious and innovative as well. Dessert was incredible!
I definitely recommend this restaurant."

"Everything we ordered was very good except for the Cowboy Steak. It was supposed to be medium rare, but came out medium. Service was nice, but they were fairly late with 1 drink and 1 order. In addition, they got one order slightly wrong. However, they fixed the incorrect order and took the problem food orders off the bill."

"Overall the experience was good. The service was attentive. Limited food selection and the portion were small. For the price which is above adverage the portions was small which was a disappointment."

"Jake & Lina are everything. Have Jake make you a drink off menu; tell him your favorite spirit & game on. Lina, she's literally the sweetest most attentive server I've had in years [& I work in the industry]. Thursday was pretty quiet, but it was perfect for our experience, as we got to sit at the "lounge" table. Be sure to have the calamari, the garlic noodles, the shishito peppers, & the chowder. #delicious"

"Really personable, attentive and friendly service.
Great food overall, portions appropriate for the price and quality.
LOVED the chicken wings (I know, they're wings, these are awesome! Crispy, meaty, and the sweet chili sauce with the crumbles of bleu cheese are inspired.) The miso cod was perfectly cooked and really satisfying. The banana bread pudding was a perfect way to end it!
Thank you!"
