Why, oh why do people like this place? Last I went with a group of friends, we had to wait in the freezing cold outside for over 2 hours, and that's for a group of 4! The decor is very '70s, and the cheap swill-filled glass of wine they

Pros: No, the free wine is not a pro for me either. It was gross!

Cons: Moreover, the server was rude and decided to lecture us.

My expectations were high and met! The cheap wine is just the thing to make an hour and a half wait ok (we got there at opening and the line was already long enough to fill every table), and my mom (who is very impatient) was fine with

Pros: The wine while you wait, the service, the food... I like everything here!

Cons: The wait, the parking... but both are totally worth it.

Another hidden gem in the Richmond district. Very fresh, and simply prepared seafood dishes. Nothing to avant-gard, just the basics. It's popular with the locals as evidenced by the line out the door on most nights because they don't take reservations but...here's the best part, how about a free glass of wine (or two) while you wait?

It was the worst experience in my life. \r
I ordered halibut parmesan that I did not enjoy to eat; cannot finish at all. \r
If you are looking for free wine, just go head.\r
