John's Grill

John's Grill has been a San Francisco tradition since 1908. This historic restaurant is one of the city's oldest and most famous and is a favorite of celebrities who enjoy great steaks, expertly prepared fresh seafood with excellent service and a one of a kind atmosphere. John's Grill was a setting in author Dashiell Hammett, The Maltese Falcon. The restaurant has earned many tributes: it has been chosen as one of the 10 best by Esquire and featured in Gourmet Magazine.
Live jazz nightly in the upper level dining room.

"Step back in time” at this circa-1908 Downtown “landmark”, where “solid steakhouse fare" and "strong drinks" draw “tourists and locals alike"; "one of the last old-style SF eateries", it’s also renowned as a "Dashiell Hammett hangout" (and a setting in The Maltese Falcon.)”

"Our ribeye and t-bone steaks were super tender. We enjoyed the landmark atmosphere along with very professional service. The couple next to us were very happy as well . We figured they are doing so much correctly with the quality of food and quantity and spot on service and this is the reason they are still packed after 108 years in business."

"The food was great. The service was excellent. This is a great spot, people coming and going. Great San Francisco pictures on the walls. Upstairs there is a case with case with The Maltese Falcon memorabilia. Also after 6pm they have jazz upstairs. What a great way to have drinks and dinner. The desert was outstanding."

"Very disappointed. Terribly noisy. Hot. Seats upstairs in low ceiling room that felt like an attic. Tables very close together. Had a man's larger flip flopped foot in eyesight the whole time. Food and menu good. Luckily, service was fast, but it's a table turning place. Definitely faded glory."

"My lamb chops were very good, but the three other guests at our table all had the John's steak which they said was tough and not flavorful. out of the diners I was the only one who enjoyed my meal and they thought it was expensive for what we got...........I would go back but the other three would not........... I was disappointed because I chose the restaurant and felt my guests were not happy."

"Came here for our anniversary and were treated very well by our waitress. Knowing we were celebrating our anniversary, she came by with a complimentary glass of champagne. We started with cocktails. I had the rum punch and my husband had, I believe, a peach martini or something like that. Both were pretty strong, but tasty. I guess for $14 they should be strong! The bread and butter was excellent! We both ordered the ribeye dinner and they were perfectly cooked and had a nice grill char on them. Service was very quick as we didn't even have much time to drink our cocktails before the food came out. Our reservation was for 5:30pm on a Saturday night, so that might be why. Not complaining though! Since we are not big fans of champagne, we only had an obligatory sip. The waitress noticed and brought us a complimentary flan for dessert instead...very nice! I don't particularly like flan as it tastes "eggy" to me, but it was creamy and the fruit that accompanied the desert was fresh (strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries). Overall a nice meal at a historic location."

"I simply love this place. I have been eating here for years when in town on business, but I wouldn't consider myself a regular. The ambiance is cool and historic, food is wonderful, and service impeccable. My wife and I were in town for a nice weekend, our 25th wedding anniversary. Somehow the waiter figured that out without me telling him, and a couple of glasses of champagne just showed up at the table, compliments of the restaurant. Super classy, personal, friendly and professional.
Thanks so much for the fine memories."

"Great ambiance, noise level fluctuated but was generally okay. Space is tight and you will be seated on one of the three floors. Food was very good, decent service."

"We were intrigued by the reference to the Maltese Falcon along with positive reviews of food. The atmosphere was pleasant, wait staff very friendly and accomodating. It may have been a little less hectic on the second level. Food was good, but not as good as expected."
