I went to B44 last weekend for Dine About Town, an Open Table promotion that offers a prix fixe menu at various restaurants in town. Many of the DAT menus offered no choices and dishes that were not particularly appealing. B44 was one of the few participating restaurants that offered several choices, and I love Spanish food, so we landed there.

The selection of wine is extensive. We had a really good Tempranillo. For my appetizer, I had the mussels with pancetta, which was fabulous. The sauce was fantastic and left me wanting more. I had the paella for my entree. It was very good, but not amazing. They are generous with the portions of seafood.For dessert, I had their version of the creme brulee, which was terrible. It was way too sweet and had a grainy texture that made it inedible.

Besides my dessert, my only other complaint would be the noise. We sat inside because it was cold, and it was incredibly cramped and loud. It was impossible not to listen to the tables next to us throughout the meal.

Overall, I would definitely go again, especially on a nice day and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys good Spanish food.

I came her for the first time the other day for lunch and it was nice. Anywhere in Belden Alley is usually a good choice and this was no exception. It was a wonderfully warm day so we sat outside. The service was very good, they gave us

Pros: paella - outside dining

I love Tapas, so B44 is a great place for me! The clams here are fresh too. Service here is very nice as well. The Boquerones is my favorite dish here. Anchovies with pear and cheese are the great combination!

I've been to this restaurant several times, and the appetizers have been consistently good. The entrees are hit-and-miss depending on what you order. That said, I had horrible service on my last visit with a group of friends celebrating

I have to say this place was disappinting. The waiter was nice but the food was a little... I guess the best description is "sparse". Got the cheese plate to split with a friend, it was unfortunately boring without much flavor. We decided

Olive oil-balsamic dip for bread was salty. Squid appetizer tasted ok, but did not look appetizing. Romaine heart salad was served in whole leaves and a bit challenging to eat. Their signature B44 paella was disappointing. The chef tried

This place is terrible. The appetizers were just OK, but the paella was truley nasty. Not only was it ill-proportioned but it was served cold and oddly burnt to the pan. We dropped some serious bucks in here the other night only to be

The food was mediocre and while my waiter was great, other members of the staff were awful. Teribly awful.

B44 fell flat on its face New Years Eve. All SF restaurants should be embarrassed for B44. THE FOOD. B44 came close to ruining Paella for me forever. To describe the rice as deep fried salt pellets coated in oil would be kind. I stopped

I coordinated a Holiday lunch for 24 employees from Visa... we were treated like royalty. Ambiance, location on Belden Place made us feel like a fantasy escape to Europe. Decor is festive, warm, inviting... upscale but relaxed. Food was SO

Okay, am I weird or does everyone else join me in expecting massive amounts of food when ordering paella? Man the portion was so light that you could see the pan through the thin layer of top rice. When the waiter brought the lil, teenie

This restaurant was a hit for our family. We had the lamb meatballs (a dinner special) and the baby squid with fennel sausage, both as appetizers. We all had seafood--the halibut, the ahi, the monkfish and rock cod--and it was excellent,

Great lunch spot for tapas. Very flavorful prawns, excellent jamon serrano, wonderful mussels and an endless bucket of bread to soak up the sauces. Good service. Crowded and a little pricey but good overall lunch experience.

Ate here Saturday night on vacation. Pleasant outside environment along with 4-5 other restaurants along this restaurant alley.

Now the food. I live in NJ outside Newark and eat paella all the time in genuine Spanish and Portugese

Was very excited about this place until I waited at bar. Waited 20 minutes for an expensive drink and didn't get my change back! Food was a step up. The jamon serrano is like butta. Paella was a bit disappointing--greasy & salty.

Excellent Catalan cuisine! We came for dinner twice to B44 during our short trip to San Francisco. My boyfriend is Catalan and he said that this place was just like home. The dishes are flavourful and authentic. Romescada, which is a dish

Just walking down Belden Lane can make one feel transported to some European country. The festive energy of the alley is alive along B44's chic bar, which pours pitchers of sangria and specialty cocktails to the stylish downtown types that…
