This place never ever has disappointed me. Every dish I have ever tried is innovative and done very well. There are plenty of great veggie options as well as a great flank steak and burger. My favorite is always the Quinoa plate. You will

Pros: Food Service Quality Price

This delightful little spot may not look like much outside, but it sure is vibrant on the inside. Local art adorns much of the walls. The bar extends into a long hallway displaying an art gallery leading to their disco-infused bathroom (disco balls and ABBA included). Their menu consists mostly of dressed up American food, but the highlight was the freshly ground turkey burger season to perfection on a ciabatta roll served with sweet potato fries. Their beer selections are exotic and the service is supreme. I'll be going back to this place very soon.

Need I say more? Many people at the restaurant complained about food not coming out. Then, we sat down and ordered our food which took forever. Then, the waitress came out and said, they ran out of certain dish. Why did it take that long to find out they didn't have crab cake? Then, they said, "everything is done but we ran out of the crab cake." This should have been the Q but we re-ordered for the crab cake. Another 45 minutes later, 2 dishes came out, cold, then, another 3, then, 1 -- the crab cake they ran out all of a sudden, appeared. What the heck??? Don't go here.

At first, I thought the place would be a good place for group gatherings, boy was i wrong! the service was slow, the waiter was rude and was giving us facial expressions throughout the entire meal--> she probablt hates her job! she doesn't have any respect to customers as well. Also, the bill came out to be way more than we all expected. other places usually have a note in the menu that states a 18% charge will be made for a party of so and so and over BUT this place didnt. It was only for lunch too! Also, the waiters had many chances to warn us about the 18% and the extra service charges IF we bring in something BUt they didn't. worst experience ever! DO NOT GO THERE! WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME! THE SANDWICH I ORDERED WASN'T EVEN GOOD! THE BREAD WAS HARD!!! please just go somewhere else

My first contact with Triptych was with David, the owner. I spoke with him a week before my get together & from our first conversation to the end of the actual dinner - my experience was positively great. He was extremely helpful & informative; he gave me the option of a set price menu ranging from $35 -$50 & catered to the price that I gave My group of 18 people got a DELICIOUS 5 course meal. We all got the soup du jour- hearty and VERY YUMMY, the sashimi - makes my mouth water as I remember how DELICIOUS the butterfish was, the crispy tofu salad was light & healthy & YUMMY! The main courses were EXCELLENT - from the meat/fish choice pork osso bucco, leg of lamb, pan-seared salmon to the vegetarian dish, quinoa & tofu... we all had the chance to taste them and that's when I started hearing how this was a place that they would COME BACK TO! Finally, dessert... 3 different type of creme brulees and a pyramid noisette - DELICIOUS!
The restaurant itself was very, very cool - the artwork , the decor really set the ambiance for a nice & relaxed place to have a group of friends get together; I would definitely go back here for a romantic date - it's not your typical snobby, snooty place where the price of the food definitely does not match up to the quality that you're paying for. The bathroom is pretty damn cool... love the 70's look - brought back some of my friends to their youths!
David & his staff were very kind, helpful, & really paid attention to my group. I was fortunate enough to meet David himself who was even nicer in person! I highly recommend this place & if you want to do a big group thing, this place is perfect! One friend said to me, "SF has great restaurants,after awhile, I found that I'm just not impressed, however, this one - I am and would definitely come back."

What a gem on Folsom!

Triptych has something delicious no matter what your palette. The beignets were light, fluffy and sweet. The champignon omelette was as good as omelettes can get (I'm not a huge omelette fan in general) and the Tryptych burger was flavorful without being too greasy.

The restaurant also has an extensive tea menu which is pleasant for those wishing to sit and chat. Unfortunately, the decor doesn't really encourage chatting. Tasteless, overly art decorates the wall, so graffiti and canvases filled with scribble distracted me from my meal. Sorry, SoMa artists, but distorted breasts drawn with a Sharpie does not a Picasso make. And hastily-drawn, ugly bodies are not by default "edgy," "hip" and least of all, "funky."

However, the food was good, the cost is affordable and overall we were very happy with our meal. I will be returning.

Pros: Great food, variety on the menu, affordable

Cons: Bad ambience, poor art, water tasted a little funny

The interior of Triptych feels like someone's downtown studio apartment. Not the kind that has old clothes and dirty dishes strewn about, but the one where you are amazed that they've fit so much personality and urban sass in with so much comfort. It was not too crowded the Tuesday evening we visited, so the food came quickly, the service was perfectly timed, and the atmosphere welcoming. The menu was diverse with items like steak, salmon, and wild mushroom ravioli. It included a couple tempting deserts. My only change would be a slight widening of the menu from typical fares, but I always look for something not found on other menus. Everything ordered though, was wonderfully flavored with no lacking of identity in the food. If I lived in the neighborhood, this place would probably be frequently visited.

Triptych offers a wide variety of styles with regards to their menu. The food is creative and delicous and the atmosphere is warm and unique.
Also, they are very easy to work with for private parties, as the owner is always there and available.

I had dinner here on a Friday night and had a great time. It has a very casual and comfortable, yet sophisticated feel. The food, along with great presentation, was very unique and tasty. There are several vegetarian options. The service was also great.

We happened upon this spot while wandering about the SOMA area. Great staff, wonderful light lunch fare (translation: food was really good) and fast service! We also picked up a wonderful piece of art. They ship pieces so we didn't have to take it back to Florida with us. Definitely will be back here when we're back in San Francisco!

I went there for my friends b-day.
Salad good, pasta ---really good-Dessert-BORING. We were a big party, but the server NEVER asked if we wanted wine, beer, etc...came and went and everyone at the table felt like---Why aren't they serving us?

It was weird-I might give it another try in a more intimate setting, but dinner for 20 overwhelmed them.

I made reservations for a friends birthday last weekend, and before that I received a phone call to see if there was anything special that they could do for him, talk about great service! So, the service was spectacular, all the waiters and waitresses were attentive and fun to talk to, the owner was also wonderful to speak with! Along with the great service, the food was fabulous - the lamb I ordered was tender and cooked perfectly! A real wonderful dining experience!

The food at Triptyche is both creative and flavorful! I am a vegetarian, and there are several veggie options, all of which are good (I've tried them all now). Furthermore, the menu is reasonably priced and the service friendly. The only downside we found was that it was relatively empty on a recent Friday night. Not quite sure why--people are missing out!

The service is always attentive and friendly. The food is excellent with a wide variety to choose from - pastas - salads - chicken - fish - steak. Very cozy atmosphere with an added bonus of a heated patio which is also great to hang out in the sun for their weekend brunch. I recently went there for my birthday (on a Thursday for an art opening) and the dessert was soooo good! I had the lava cake and am still in a chocolate coma. My friend had the peach cobbler and was also very good.

I highly recommend this cozy restaurant.

One of my favorite places to eat in all of San Francisco. I eat here at least four times a week. The food is EXCELLENT, the specials are always changing, the place is awesome to look at and be in, and the service is like no other. All the waiters and waitresses are friendly, helpful, and not bad to look at! My favorite food choice is the chef's special ravioli dish, which changes nightly and is ALWAYS a great treat. Match that with a bowl of their daily soup and you have a winning combination! I have never had a SINGLE problem here and I'm here all the time. If you're in the area, or just looking to try something new and great, try Triptych.

The lack of a crowd at Triptych was deceiving, because I found this to be among my most rewarding dining experiences in San Francisco. The food is very reasonably priced and the chef produces some amazing dishes. They have the best salad ever - fried castroville artichokes with goat cheese on spinach. I loved the porcini mushroom raviolis - and the seafood and meat dishes are all good. Don't miss the pumpkin cobbler during the holidays - it definitely beats pie! I'll be back to Triptych for sure.

There have been many times I've frequented Triptych since it's in my neighborhood; however, there is now a new Chef who makes this SOMA spot very worth checking out! Visited one night with 4 friends and we asked for chef's choice. Six amazing courses then followed. Salmon tartar was the special sashimi of the day which was a very tasty dish with colorful layers which you could taste individually. An Octupus salad was also part of our meal which was one of the best eaten in a while! When Chef came out so we could meet him, we found out he worked at Aqua which explains the fantastic seafood but we also had lamb which was cooked perfectly too! You will not be disappointed by the food here! It tastes as good as it looks!

We were a 4-top on a Friday night and we barely saw our server. We ordered a soup that never arrived. Two of us ordered a quinoa dish and they brought us couscous instead. They didn't bother to tell us they were out of quinoa until the dish arrived, which took some time. We didn't want couscous so we shared one because we were hungry and sent the other dish back with the promise that it would contain quinoa. The bill came without anyone asking if we wanted dessert. I would have left happy if they would have just given us a complimentary dessert or glass of wine.

I have eaten here many times and am always impressed with the quality of the food and the waitstaff. I enjoy trying their daily specials and especially enjoy their Scallops in a sherry cream sauce. The art space vibe is so welcoming and comfortable, you feel special just being in it's presence. The back garden patio is an urban oasis.

A group of friends (3 people) and I decided to give this place a try.
It wasn't all I had hoped for, to begin with we were kept waiting for our table for close to 45 minutes(after you hear "it'll be a few more minutes" 6 or 7 times you start to have doubts. Once at our table, service was spotty to say the least, the waitress was more concerned about the 2 men at the table close to us. The food did leave a lot to be desired, I don't know when you order food you at least like it to be hot when it finally arrives. All in all my fish was overcooked, and barely warm(how they managed that I still haven't figured out), 2 of my friends had salads, they were especially impressed with how tasteless their salads were. All things considered, it was a diappointment.

I met up with a couple of friends to have wine and dinner at Triptych last night (a Tuesday). I was impressed by the attentive and personable waitress. The scallop dish was to die for. The wine list was very good as well. I live in the East Bay, and will definitely go back to Triptych with my husband. Wonderful ambiance. The owners and staff obviously love what they do--it shows.

Marked by a festive warmth in service and atmosphere, and featuring work from local artists, an experience at Triptych can be laid-back, kind and colorful. The space plays host to larger, friendly gatherings but solo diners also feel at…
