Although there was a raucous Sunday bottomless mimosa crowd at the front table, the ambiance is very warm and inviting. Server was excellent. Bar, maybe a little slow, but it was Sunday Brunch. Food was very good. Will definitely be returning!

Some of the food options were wonderful and others were lacking (if you are going to offer only 1 vegetarian or vegan entree on SF,. It better be good -and it was not. But other guests were pleased with their food). Service and attention were lacking-I do not recommend for any special occasions-by the time our server managed to finally visit our table, it was too late to order dessert-at a birthday dinner! We were neglected.

Perhaps this place Will hit their stride with time and provide better food and service-I will not be back and I recommend avoiding at this point! So many restaurants in SF are ready and willing to treat you better! Unimpressive did what you will pay-better options all over San Francisco!

It was one of the most friendliest places we have dined in San Francisco. Which is saying a lot, because I am a frequent diner in San Francisco. Everything was perfect, Our server was amiable, friendly and funny! Food was fantastic! The chefs know their craft! Host staff in the front professional and patient and maintained all public health protocols.

They basically ignored our reservation. The hostess was completely useless. After 30 minutes of waiting for our reserved table we sat ourselves down. Then of course the server took another 20 minutes to take our order. Food was excellent though.

Great spot in the mission overall. Service was excellent. Food was tasty. Was expecting a little more food wise, but nothing to specifically complain about. My guest said it was the best "bar food" he had ever had. i.e. the fried burrata was like a high end fried mozzarella stick.

Yummy truffle maple syrup for the chicken and waffle. Service is excellent. Good ambiance. For the record, we also had salmon tartare, bone marrow, crepe cake and dealer's choice drink that was lemonade-ish

Too tired to cook on the first day of in-person teaching, so searched out Luna because of connection to Wayfare Tavern. Our drinks were imaginative (a Vesper spritz, a Bittersweet with dried rose garnish). My vegetarian choices of buttermilk fried mushrooms, fried tofu salad, and bolognese pasta were not run of the mill veggie choices in taste or presentation. And still many other drink and menu choices! Can’t wait to return and recommend Luna to others. Plus the Luna Park neon sign is historic and cool!

Really enjoyed our dinner here. Brought our kids for an early outdoor dinner - they don't have a kids menu but my children enjoyed the food, and I thought it was very nice. The service was attentive and very friendly. Pretty expensive, but it is inline with other places.

Booked a table for 4 at 7 45, waited until 8 30 for 2 people to be seated and the rest of our party was seated at 9 30. Food was good, drinks an the creative side but they can definitely improve on logistics.

Glad to see a reincarnation of Luna be resurrected. The decor is modern and hip. The wait staff incredibly courteous and attentive, and the food slightly elevated than before. The Luna salad was a hit, as was the perfectly cooked salmon and pork chop. Everything was on point! A definite repeat.

Enjoyed our first visit to the new LUNA restaurant on Valencia. Promptly seated at our requested table reservation and greeted warmly by our server, Mitchell - who provided an enthusiastic and spot-on recommendation for the appetizer special and a bottle of Pinot Noir that worked with everything we ordered. The support staff is well-trained, attentive but not intrusive. The menu is concise and offers up many excellent meat, fish and vegetarian dishes - focusing on what is fresh and locally inseason. The meaty, excellently prepared Pork Chop dish gives Boulevard some serious competition - at nearly half the price - wow! We met Chef Scott at the end of dinner and it's obvious he's all about building a Great Team and a culture that respects customers, staff and their food purveyors. My only suggestion might be to expand the wine menu. While it was great to order a bottle of very good Pinot Noir priced at less than $60, we and many other tables enjoying their Saturday dinner, would likely be enticed to splash out for a pricier option. Always good to have choices! Diners looking for a quiet time should look elsewhere, however if a bit more energy and an amusing bar scene adds to your experience - you've come to the right place and will leave happy and looking forward to your next visit!

For only being open 3 weeks, the restaurant ran like they've been open for 3 years; no hiccups. We sat at the bar, for cocktails and dinner, and the staff made the whole experience amazing! Highly recommend this new restaurant; it's going to be around for awhile!
