5A5 Steak Lounge Ratings and Reviews
While we had a pleasant evening and the service was good, my wife and I just really felt that almost all of the food had some issues with flavors not working well together. Since it left a lot to be desired for the price, we felt it was an overpriced dinner and most likely will not go back. I had the lobster bisque, but it was not a great flavor and since the lobster meat was added to it in the center (it was nice presentation) it didn't seem to go well with the bisque for some reason or do anything for the flavor. My wife had the grilled romaine salad and we agreed it was interesting, and maybe the best of what was ordered -- which shouldn't be the case at a restaurant showcasing steak. My filet was cooked perfectly and was very tender; however, the demi glace and green garlic flavors conflicted and didn't make the overall taste something I would recommend to anyone or order again. She ordered the t-bone because the ingredients peaked her interest, but it was a very strong flavor warranting a few bites only. The truffle mac & cheese was ok, but not anything great or special.
We had a large party and we usually pay our own bills. We were told that they could only charge even number charges on four charge cards. My wife broke down each persons bill and what each owed as she has done for our family for the past 28 years. They have a app now so it's much easier to take a picture of bill and separate it. She puts amount on paper and the amount to be charged .to each card He charged the different amounts but I have never heard of this before. The person who delivered the bill to the table , sat the bill on table no communication no eye contact and left not sure what that was about. This was not the waiter or our server he was great. Overall good food great service but these other two incidents threw me for a loop.
Visiting San Francisco for Labor Day weekend and this was our last night here. We found 5A5 on open table and based off all the awesome reviews we decided to give it a try. So glad we did! First of all, the hostess was very sweet and professional. We arrived 30 minutes early and she told us she would have a table for us soon and we could go to the bar/lounge while we wait. The bartender, Michael, was outstanding. By far, the best service we've ever received. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. The restaurant was very clean and had a nice intimate setting. Perfect for date night! We started off with the tempura lobster and the shishito peppers. I ordered the filet mignon and my boyfriend ordered the tbone. Both were cooked to perfection and seasoned well. By far the best restaurant we visited in SF and one of the best I have ever dined at. Job well done. Highly recommend.
If you're a steak lover, then this is the ideal restaurant for you. We started off with the Lobster tempura and U10 scallops, then had the A5 Wagyu Ribeye that was amazing. Including the truffle mushroom butter that was on top of it.
If you can get pass the $$$ price per ounce, then I recommend this restaurant...
Overall the experience was good. My steak came out medium when I ordered medium rare and my colleague's steak came out medium rare when he ordered medium. I'm pretty sure the kitchen switched our orders and we ordered different cuts of meats so it wasn't something we could switch... for the costs, this mistake should not occur.
The service was great. Very friendly. The appetizers and sides were great too. Just wish my steak was cooked correctly as the seasoning was very good on mine.
We were celebrating a new job offer and tell you the truth they way we were welcomed to the lounge was exceptionally classy !The food was more than amazing; the presentation of the menu items was outstanding. The waitress was smiley and helpful she explained the types of meat and the wines and the champagne. We enjoyed Prime Ribs, truffle fries and asparagus, and cauliflower .. all was served hot and super tasty! Will definitely go back again !
Service: ultra professional and detailed
Food: we didn't have a dish that wasn't absolutely amazing! Beautiful presentation, incredible flavors, high quality.
Price/value: people often think of price and value as the same thing... They are not! Is it expensive to dine here? Yes, if you choose the certified Japanese Wagyu steaks. Value - you may only find a handful of restaurants in the US that actually serves REAL Wagyu steak. So for what you get, the value is amazing! I would highly recommend this steakhouse! Thanks for the incredible dining experience
I arrived about 5 minutes early and checked in. Let them know my date was running a little late and I will wait at the bar. When she arrived, I was told that they canceled my reservations because I didn't check in. Which I clearly did. Was then told it would be about 5 minutes. 30 minutes later after going to the hostess twice, we finally got a table.
After 10 minutes wait they decided menus might be a help.
The waiter then proceeded to splash my date drink all over her. Luckily it only hit her face, into the eye and down the arm. Upon her cleaning up some, we decided to leave. Not wanting to make a bigger display, we just asked for the bill for the drinks and proceeded to leave. At this time the manager decided to try to make it up. He tried so hard that he followed us next door to Kokkari.
I will never step into this place again, but highly recommend Kokkari next door. It was amazing service, and they went out their way to make night great for us anyway. We go out at least one night a week. This week it is The Boulevard and next to La Mars. This is the first time I ever felt the need to write a review. DO NOT GO TO 5A5 Steak Lounge.
PS: the system made me put something in for value and quality of food. I must be honest, we never tried the food. So the values are just place setters
The food was fine and the service adequate. But my friend and I ordered a few different small plates and the server said that the items were served family style and would be sent separately (as in sent out in courses), but we received all the food at once: salad, soup, fries and lobster tempura - so we were forced to eat some of the hot foods after they had cooled considerably.
An unserem Abend war sehr laut. Man konnte sich fast nicht unterhalten. Trotz vieler Kellner ca fünf haben immer Details gefehlt. Mein Steak für 65$ war nicht Medium. Schönes Lokal nur laut mitbedingt guten Service und somit im Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis eher nichts empfehlen
My wife and myself were celebrating our 12 year wedding Anniversary and your team made our moment even more special than what it already was. From the moment we were greeted, till our ending coffee, our server made it a night truly to remember. She was very out going, understood our needs. Excellent service. Thank you so much!!!
It was my boyfriend's birthday and we were there to celebrate it. Everything was so amazing. The service was incredible great. The food...omg words can't explain it. The best I've ever tasted in SF so far. Definitely an awesome place to go to. Don't miss it out!
