5A5 Steak Lounge Ratings and Reviews
Extremely prompt service I flew in from Chicago and took my girlfriend and it was nothing less then perfect, fast, prompt, and polite service. Food was next level good and the chef sent us complimentary tastes of desert and bite size sausages coming back very soon
Took a little while to get the menus from a server but once we got them everything was amazing. ( my guess was he had a lot of other table so I ybderstand) Server was attentive. Checked in on every dish. Chef created absolutely amazing dishes and they were presented beautiful. I would recommend this lounge/restaurants to all of my friends
Great dinner, our regular filet and A5 japanese wagyu ribeye were cooked perfectly. The A5 was the best steak we've ever had (better than other places that serve wagyu). The lobster tempura was to die for, hamachi shooters were a fun starter.
Service was friendly and on point, fun, modern atmosphere - not stuff at all.
Chose this restaurant for my boyfriend's birthday dinner. We were excited to try it out.
They were out of the steak we wanted as well as mashed potatoes and the sides were served room temperature.
We complained to our waiter but he just apologized and that was it.
Our prime rib was ok. I expected better ambiance and food quality for the price.
I was told to try Epic in SF and now I wish we would have.
We were also disappointed there was no valet. Parking was difficult to find as expected.
We consider ourselves steak connoisseurs. We have eaten in NYC's Peter Luger, Sparks, etc. this place blows them away. Knowledgeable and friendly waitstaff. Absolutely melt-in-your mouth 11-12 grade wagyu ribeye and cap. And we mean if you let a piece sit on your tongue, it melts like "butta". Generous shareable sides, Creative desserts, special Table-side Scotch and Whiskey service. Just outstanding. A bit pricey, but its once in a lifetime steak. We were there for our anniversary. Recommend highly.
I ordered a bone in Ribeyes 32 oz
It is a little bit well done for a medium rare
And I was expecting it will be done perfectly, crispy on the outside and tender in the inside. But I'm disappointed.
On the other hand, the lobster tempura is well deserved a try. I will definitely recommend it.
Insanely expensive for ok service and ok food. Also, they don't know how to cook steak! I ordered a $60 steak medium-rare and it came out well done! And my girlfriend ordered a $50 steak medium that they messed up TWICE. First time it came out blue. Sent it back and it was only medium rare.
For such an expensive place, it's absolutely unacceptable that they can't get an order right. I left feeling hungry and ripped off.
I am pretty sure that I'll never come here again. If I drop $300 on a dinner for two, it has be flawless.
Great food but server was not great. Apparently they often sell out of the prime rib early in the evening, we were there at 7:30 and it was already gone. Our server was not very kind in explaining this. He was even rude at times. I explained to him that I had a bad shellfish allergy and he kept questioning me, saying things like, "well how allergic are you anyway?". I also had a bug in my wine and my friend had one crawling on his wine glass. We still tipped very well but this was NOT the service I would expect for a $511 meal. Overall delicious meal though. I think it was just a server issue.
The food was fabulous. The waiter staff worked as a team, and were very efficient; however, I felt like our waiter forgot about us at times. The music was very loud. It sounded like I was in a night club. It was by far the worse part of my dining experience. My husband and I shouted at each of from across the table the entire time.
Everything food wise was delicious. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and it seemed like everyone was having a great time. We started with the tempura lobster appetizer. Fresh and delicious. Now on to dinner. My wife got the 10oz prime rib and I got the bone-in ribeye. Both were flavorful and tender. We also got the Truffled mac n cheese and the white cheddar mash. Both were phenomenal. Our server was super friendly and gave us a lot of great suggestions. We will back back sooner than later.
Came to A5a for my wife's birthday. Easy valet parking in SF was a plus. Good food and great ambiance, however I ordered the potatoe gnocchi as a side dish and someone forgot the order. The server brought our steaks and cream of spinach (which was Delish) but the gnocchi was either forgotten by the waiter or the Chef; either way, the server advised that the gnocchi would take a long time to prepare so I elected the Mac and cheese by default...........and with disappointment.
Just not good at all. The decor was dreadful, the noise too much to have a conversation. The wine menu was almost unable to be read because of poor printing. The beverage manager didn't know his wines and couldn't explain their value. The food was pretty good but the service ruined that. Would not recommend!
DISAPPOINTED!!!! I am not sure whether most of the reviewers ate at the same 5A5 that I did. The food was on the lower side of average and the service was lackluster. Our server was very pompous about the quality of food but unfortunately the chef did not deliver. This restaurant certainly does not deserve to be mentioned in the same discussion with other top quality steak houses.
After trying to find a restaurant in SF that would fit everyone in our groups tastes I came across 5A5 on Open Table and looked at the menu and found something for everyone. The décor was beautiful and loved the way the tables were placed in a circle. First, the service is outstanding. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. For those of us who are more adventuresome we had the Wagu beef tartar and lobster along with many other plates and the person who was just a steak eater had a perfectly cooked filet. I must say I'm not a desert person but we ordered two for the table were not only delicious but the presentation was out of this world. It was the perfect evening.
