Citizens Band

Welcome to Citizen's Band!
We are now hosting special popup dinners on Mondays. Please note the regular citizens band menu is NOT available on our Monday popup dinners. Please contact the restaurant for more information.

Fusing white tablecloth caliber food with the comfort and style of a diner, Citizen's Band dials in on American classics in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood. Salvaged furniture gives the space a comfortable, lived-in feel, and vintage CB radios and postcards lend an old but new vibe to the 40-seat fine diner.

"Not fit for those with food allergies. Was rushed to the emergency room after dining here. They did not take food allergies seriously.
If you don't have food allergies then this review doesn't apply"

"Friendly staff and helpful staff. They didn't judge me when I ordered both the Mac and cheese and the poutine and it was just me dining alone.
They have a nice wine list and are knowledgable about what they serve.
The food was incredible and reasonably priced.
It wasn't busy yet when I was there. 5:30 on a Thursday evening but I can imagine that it would get loud when it fills up

"The food was fabulous. Lots of flavor. Great service. A bit on the expensive side - $80 for 2 meals, 1 non-alcoholic drink and 2 ice cream desserts, inc. tax and tip. But, I would definitely go there again."

"Three of us dined here before a show at the Orpheum Theater just a few short blocks away. Service was at a great pace (not rushing us but attentive and full of tips); food was piping hot and so good. Fried Chicken along with a melt in your mouth honey topped biscuit and escarole side dish was out of this world. Shared the Poutine and the Tomato Salad appetizers (both unique and delicious). One of us had the hamburger with fries and she loved it too (I didn't get a taste of that one). Would dine here again in a heartbeat.
We realized after the theater, that we'd totaled the credit card incorrectly (by $10) -- so, we made sure to stop in on our way to our car to correct the error (the servers totally deserved that part of their tip as they were very friendly and service was great)."

"I saw pictures of the Mac & Cheese online and I had to come here to try it...I was NOT disappointed! The pork fries were also pretty good. The burger I had was HUGE and I couldn't even finish it. They have a great service staff that were all very attentive and friendly. This is a cool place. Next time thought I want to save room for dessert. There's some good options, but I couldn't fathom eating ant more food."

"The place looked cool and unique inside with its postcard and old vintage photo wal/decor. It's connected to the bakery and the bar/club next door. The staff was very friendly. I was excited to try this place for my goddaughter's graduation dinner (she loves these type of restaurants). We ordered the the poutine fries (with the pork on the side), Mac & cheese, and the fried chicken. The first time, the server forgot to tell them to put pork on the side (I don't eat pork) so she had to return it, which was perfectly fine. When she did bring out the correct plate, it was simply delicious! It had an amazing blend of cheese and gravy. It was a perfect combination of everything.
My goddaughter said that was the best part of the dinner and I would have to agree. She did enjoy her Mac & Cheese. Although, she said the onion rings on top were better than the Mac and cheese on bottom. I'm not a fan of baked mac & cheese so I didn't really have a take on it. Presentation was unique. My fries chicken on the other hand, I was let impressed at all. The dish came with 4 pieces of chicken, a large biscuit and some greens. The chicken just had an odd taste to it. I tried dipping it in the gravy and without, but I just wasn't thrilled with the flavor of the chicken. I can't pinpoint what it was exactly that made me find it very unappealing. So, I ate the rest of the biscuit and oil the chicken to go (maybe someone at home can try it and see if they like it. Unfortunately, no one wanted to eat it or even try it. What a waste.) overall, the feel was the place was cool and the poutine fries were bomb! But, that pretty much ends it for me right there. Nothing too great after that. It's another place my goddaughter can cross off her list of restaurants to try.

"Citizens Band has a very eclectic atmosphere - very small, so be sure to get a reservation. Good wine list. Food was good southern comfort style food. Not the very best food for the price, but I suppose you're paying for the atmosphere. Overall, we had a great time."

"Unexpectedly superb food and flubber sized portions! Citizen's Band is a hidden restaurant disguised with slummy street frontage, unassuming entry and invisible signage. Take a walk on the wild side.. You will be glad you did!"

"I was greeted when I walked in and seated right away to my reserved table. The place fills up rather quickly. The food is delicious! I highly recommend the Poutine and the Mac N Cheese, which is served differently than most places. Their wine list is small but the selection was perfect. Our server was so sweet and checked in on us often. I would definitely come here again."

"A step up from a classic diner, no frills yet hip without the pretense. Comfort food; the mac n cheese is a winner & the Pork Chop is the bomb! Good late night ish.. (11pm Kitchen closes) if you are local to the area, easy eats for a lazy week night or drinking, clubbing in the area (Public Works, 1015, Monarch etc)."

"Either San Francisco foodies have lost a step or someone made a misstep marking this restaurant as "Fit for Foodies". On the table we had a Caesar salad, the seasonal pickle jar, the burger, and the fried chicken. The salad was almost identical to what I would have gotten from Panera, the pickles and burger were just "fine", and the chicken while cooked well lacked originality and flavor. To top the night off, at 9PM the club next door unleashed a playlist of heavy bass EDM music which was so loud the windows rattled with each thump; the ambiance which was Citizen's Band's saving grace was ruined. Two thumbs up for service but I think I'd rather have bad service and great food."
