Because it is just up the street from our hotel, we tried this place. The good was mediocre at best and overpriced. The service was terrible, they acted like we were bothering them.

Fantastic huge breakfasts. It's a challenge for a very hungry person to finish a full stack of delicious buttermilk pancakes. Very nice and friendly waitress. Place has a lot of character. Great place for kids @ breakfast. Have not tried for other meals besides breakfast. This place is truly an institution! Highly recommend!

Poor food for dinner and we had a very rude waiter who took forever to take our order and acted like he was doing us a favor by serving us. Stuffy, dark atmosphere. I would not go back to this place.

The service here is appalling. The staff don't bother listening to your orders and then when they get the orders wrong they are rude and offhand. They clearly do not care about whether the customers are enjoying the food or experience. The food is not good either, the poached eggs in our breakfast were overcooked and cold. It took them 20mins to bring us a cup of coffee. Really don't bother with this place, there are so many better places to eat in SF (better food, value and service). Don't waste your money here.

For a place known for its pancakes, the dinner was unbelievable. I am a native San Franciscan and had not walked into Sears for years. One might think of it, as did I, as a tourist stop. Since UTIVE CHEF: PATRICIA BLECHA has taken over, the dinner menu is one to be reckoned with. I looked at the menu and almost walked back outside and looked at the sign as to where I really was. Your mindset needs to change instantaneously from the minute you walk into Sears to gain the full dining experience. The calamari appetizer could be a meal in itself. A tough item to cook, but was outstanding. The additions (sides) of the sweet potato a'gratin, the broccoli/mushroom soufflé, and the rack of lamb on a layer of fava beans with hints of sausage was cooked to perfection. The dessert of vanilla bean crème bulee ~ superb. The evening was concluded with utive Chef Pat coming out and sitting and talking to us. Class Act. I see the menu has changed slightly since we have been there and the prices have gone up a bit, but a very welcome dining experience worth any price. Give it a try, you'll like it.

We were in SF on a conference and this restaurant was up the street and the menu looked good (and I LOVE historic non-chain places). Unfortunately, the beef bourgignon tasted more like bbq, the restaurant was hot and stuffy and my co-workers were equally unimpressed with their own food. To their defense, they are "known" for their pancakes but these were not offered as a dinner option.
