The Fly Trap

A word from The Fly Trap
Melding the modern and the classic, Chef Hoss Zaré brings vibrant flavors to the historic Fly Trap Restaurant. Chef Zaré’s menu draws inspiration from across the Mediterranean and his Persian/Azeri heritage to showcase ingredients from San Francisco’s local markets.
At The Fly Trap, guests can enjoy a bustling neighborhood happy hour, dine casually at the communal tables, or delight in the elegant main dining area. An artisan cocktail list, innovative desserts, eclectic wine list and a warm, genuine sense of hospitality appeal to the neighborhood and out-of-town guests. The Fly Trap is located in the South of Market area, just 2 blocks from the Moscone Center.

"A gem. We had seen the show Check please, The review was very good so we gave it a try. Wonderful, The food was delicious, ambiance-romantic lighting, service perfect, although fairly noisy.

"Food was good, not great. Solid drink menu (including beer and wine). Service was pretty poor. We waiting a very long time to get our check then our waitress never came back for our credit card; we had to eventually give it to a server working a different part of the restaurant."

"Excellent cocktails and dining experience. I think this is a great spot for dinner/drinks with friends after work or a quiet dinner date for two. The argonaut is my favorite cocktail here and the abgoosht and lamb burger are the two mains that I have ordered previously (both good). The fries are also delicious and a must order!"

"I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to get a reservation so easily for this wonderful neighborhood restaurant. The food and service were outstanding and when I asked for something "like" a Cote de Rhone wine they actually not only knew what I was talking about but had an actual French Cote de Rhone and a Lebanese Red blend wine that they suggested I try as well. All this within walking distance from the hotel. All I can say is go here for dinner some time soon, you will be glad you did."

"I've eaten here several times, and the food is always outstanding. I always find the small plates more interesting than the entrees, but the lamb stew was phenomenal. Interesting cocktails as well, and great service. Hard to talk - it's very loud - but fun and delicious."

"This was our second visit for the creative cooking--who would think that an eggplant puree would be an appropriate topping for a goat cheesecake dessert. The service is very good and the wine list is rather eclectic. One night we had good guidance through the unfamiliar wine list and the other night it was more explore on your own. One night we were able to hear each other and the second night it was impossible."

"A nice place for dinner that was not the usual faire but still reliant on high quality, fresh ingredients. Some unusual wines that turned out very nice. Friendly staff. Nice ambiance, if still on the loud side."

"Made a last minute reservation and had a good table by the window. It's a small restaurant but not overcrowded and a good choice for this area. The menu consists of mainly Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes. We enjoyed the prosciutto-wrapped chicken (a little salty but great flavours from the accompanying roasted veggies) and lamb abgoosht. If you want to start with a non-traditional, yet tasty appetizer, go for the fries served with saffron aioli - delicious! We also shared the poached apple with ice cream and fruit but the dessert menu in general could be improved. Very good beer menu, although only 2 beers on draught. Cocktails also great (they even have Pimm's). Service was good. We'll probably be back."
