Gaspar Brasserie Ratings and Reviews
Another fabulous experience at Gaspar. Brought my boss this time. He's very impressed that Jaime was so accommodating and attentive. It's my favorite place to bring people during the workweek for lunch. We also like it for pre-theater. Food is always delicious and the staff are wonderful.
Gaspar is a cute French bistro located in Union Square, Great happy hour with $1 oysters, and $7 appetizers and drinks. Special thanks to Bob, the host, Nora, bartender, and Ben, our server,: everyone was so friendly and still professional. We will definitely be back
Two older women friends who live in different cities getting together for good food and conversation. We opted to sit downstairs vs upstairs where live jazz was playing so we could talk. Service was great. Beautiful large fresh salads. One had the pork chop w huckleberries and outstanding sauce; the other had the salmon dish, simply delicious.
Friendly yet inept service. We arrived for our 7:30pm reservation and there were still tables available, indicating that they were not "slammed" with business. We patiently waited and finally ordered our wine and appetizers first and a little bread please. The waiter did not return with the bread. We asked a bus person, they did not return with bread. The wine arrived after about 15 minutes with our waiter and we asked him for bread again. He returned with a few pieces of dried out bread. Now, It was a Friday, bakers work all night Thursdays and fresh bread should have been no problem. Our ($50+) bottle of red wine was hard on the edge of tasting "corked". My wife said it was ok and I didn't want to risk another interminable wait. We waited and waited ever so patiently and asked for more bread. Again, a few pieces of dried out bread. The appetizers never arrived and suddenly, after about 20 minutes our main course arrived with a bus person - first a steak and then about 10 minutes later an order of scallops and a side of mashed potatoes. Looked superb but the scallops were cold. I sent them back and after a while (seriously) got them back on a very warm plate but the scallops were still only slightly warm. Did I mention that the on the ball staff never gave us a serving spoon for the almost warm mashed potatoes?
The Maitre d' later offered us deserts on the house, they were good, however he never so much as apologized for the forgotten appetizers, or cold food, nor did our waiter. My impression is that they just are not organized, not pro and it almost ruined our wonderful romantic dinner. It's a good thing we are both friendly, patient people. Never, not even a little did we loose our tempers to the waiter or bus folks. We saw it as being humorous in a surrealistic kind of way, somewhat like a Fellini movie. We finally got out of there at 10pm. Happy Bastille Day.
We won't go there again... pretty good food, but served cold due to really disorganized service.
From our first contact while placing reservations to our departure, service was top notch. Friendly wait staff, attentive but not hovering. French cuisine was prepared beautifully with touches from the local farmers' market. Will definitely dine here again.
No Bathroom, so have to walk into the hotel to use the restroom.
Very slow service. Took 45 minutes to cook a 2 medium rare steaks. Our table ordered 2 steaks, salmon and a burger. All should take less than 15-20 minutes to cook... unless you literally have one chef doing all the work or the waitress forgot.
- Our drinks were sitting there for 10 mins before she brought them over.
- Asked for ketchup for fries 3 times before she finally brought over an OUNCE of ketchup for 3 people who ordered fires. What are we supposed to share it?
Bus boys and the water guy was good at their jobs.
I literally work on Montgomery, figured it was a good place to check out after work. WILL NOT be coming back here or recommending it to anyone else.
My first visit to Gaspar was a lovely engagement. A varied menu offers numerous scrumptious dishes. The waiter was very articulate and knowledgeable about the menu and was helpful in our selection of the escargot and the Croque Monsieur with paired wines. We dined in the lower restaurant's intimate atmosphere for a very nice experience.
I'm from Canada but my fiancé and I are getting married in the Bay Area. We booked our reception at Gaspar Brasserie without ever having tried it. Yesterday, while visiting San Francisco for the NBA Finals, we finally had the opportunity to sample the food, and we certainly were not disappointed! Everything we had was delicious, but what really made the evening special was the thoughtfulness of our server, Anouk, and the extra effort that the GM, Phillipe, made to ensure we felt welcome and special.
I'm so happy we chose Gaspar Brasserie to be part of our wedding day - it really is a special place.
We were greeted warmly and presented glasses of champagne as we were celebrating our anniversary. We shared the turnip soup, boat scallops and pork chop, each of which was very creative and delicious. Service was prompt, informed and friendly. Red leather and wood ambiance. Highly recommend this place.
My wife and I went to Gaspar Brasserie for an impromptu dinner on a Sat night. There was a Jazz band upstairs. The bartender was very nice, but then we took our table for dinner and things went downhill. Our server did not show up for 10-15 minutes, our fist 2 appetizers, which we had asked to be sequenced, came out together. The escargot was fair, the little gem salad was bland. No server in sight for at least another 20 minutes. I finally got up, found another server and asked to see ours. When she arrived, we informed her that we were leaving and to cancel our entree order. The manager did that and apologized, but it was time to move to another place that has staff that can cover their tables adequately...which we found at Le Central...great food and great service.
