What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.5

Tartine Manufactory in the Mission is a huge operation with excellent pastries, coffee, and ice cream, and dinner as well.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

In the past our service on several occasions has not been good, so I am happy to say that our service of everyone from the greeter to our server was great! A limited dinner menu of interesting items. The pork chop sad to say was 50% fat, other items were very tasty. A little on the pricey side, $150 for two..not sure how we got there! I do love their bread though, especially the Danish Rye.

We enjoyed the food but the whole experience not so much. The person checking guests in seemed completely overwhelmed even though it was early and no very busy. Also, when the server brought the check, we noticed that he had not included a bottle of wine in the total. When we pointed that out to him, he was kind of snotty with us and took way to long to correct his error and bring the check back,

I've loved Tartine ever since I lived across the street from the bakery in college. Tartine Manufactory seems like the perfect parallel to my own growth and maturation. I love the style/ambience/aesthetic and the food is always so, so good.

Food was excellent. Service could have been better. Server was slammed, waited close to 5 minutes before being greeted, was finally able to flag him down after trying for 10 minutes, wanted order a glass of wine and add to the food order. After table was cleared took a while to get dessert menus. Happy there were food runners as the food came out to the table quick. Disappointed that there wasn't any bread left to be sold to go home as it looked like there was at least a dozen sitting in bags on the shelf. I've been here many times and the food is always great and so is the service. Came here with my family as it was my wife's birthday. Many times service lags when the servers see kids at the table.

Tartine is my favorite restaurant in SF. Always get the taretare and the bread & butter. The menu changes frequently and the koji crusted pork chop was my favorite new offering.

Looooved our wine selection. Our server was friendly and provided great service. The pastas had very subtle seasoning - could have used more punch IMO. I did not enjoy the texture of the durum wheat pasta--is it supposed to be so thick and chewy? The pistachio beet winter chicories salad, however, was PERFECTION, as was the burrata! I liked the look of the main room in the restaurant, and was disappointed not to be seated there. Where we were felt more like a cafeteria which I felt detracted from you experience a bit. Especially since on the day I went, the main entrance was strangely closed, so my only experience of the resto was walking in the side door, sitting right there and walking out the side door. I didn't get a chance to experience the beauty of the space as I had seen it on social media.

My friends and I were very disappointed by both the service and the food here. For a restaurant known for its bread, we were surprised at the charge for the bread, especially if one wanted a second order (the serving is 4 slices) for which they charge again. We ordered everything to share starting with the beet hummus which was good but not served with anything to enjoy it with, such as pita bread. Our server did offer a second serving of bread after we questioned why no pita. The burrata was ok, not as good as most in other restaurants, and luckily, we still had some bread left. Then we had the chicory salad which had too much vinegar and was way too salty. No serving utensils were offered with the salad and we still had the same small appetizer plates we started with. Then we had the chicken dish - again, way too salty. Our server did finally bring fresh plates and flatware for the chicken. Our server was not very attentive - the busboys were the only friendly help. After reading a huge article about the opening of the Manufactory in L.A., I was eager to try the SF location. However, I see no reason to return or check out the L.A. location when down there next.

We went there for dinner so I cannot speak to the brunch offerings which it is more famous for. For those expecting a dinner on par with the level of food at Tartine Patisserie, they’re likely to be somewhat disappointed. The food is fine, but nothing to get too excited about though I did think their desserts and wine were really good.

We ate at Tartine Manufactory a few weeks ago and had a much better experience than our most recent visit. This time, service seemed to be the weak point. Our server was very nice, but nothing was delivered to our table for a long time, even bread and a drink took way too long. He seemed to be too busy to pay attention to our small table of 2.
Still, the food is really good!

The food was delicious but way too expensive for what we received.The $6 bread was one slice each plus a small heel that was gone when the soup arrived.Salad was generous and fresh.We both ordered pasta dishes that were so small and the few noodles were swimming in sauce oh and the slice of bread was gone.The food was good but a $27 pasta that left you hungry wasn’t worth it.
Our waiter was excellent.Overall it was borderline disappointing

Real mixed bag I would have to say.
As a pastry chef from London I was so excited to visit... went to the bakery earlier in the week for pastries and thought we’d check out dinner.
Overall we were underwhelmed with the food; nothing offensive, just not particularly memorable... and the dessert was pretty poor - rock solid semifreddo on a bed of what I can only describe as generic bottled Hershey-esque chocolate sauce. Not usually one to leave a bad review, but a little disappointed.

The food is generally good, but there were some misses. The spaghetti with squid ink sauce and clams was ill-conceived. The spaghetti was too thick and had too much overly salty sauce. While the tagliatelle with shrimp was very good, it was overpriced as was the spaghetti. The chicken croquets and squash soup were good. They serve excellent bread, but the $6.95 charge for a modest serving was annoying for a bakery restaurant.

You would think that when every patron in this restaurant puts their coat on and when patrons complain about the air conditioning that management would get a clue! Here not so much. Tartine Manufactory is a pleasant place with good food, but it was so frickin cold that I could never consider going back. And truly everyone was complaining. So why the management turns a blind eye to this is mystifying. There are plenty of great restaurants in SF, but this isn't one of them.

We asked for a booth and the hostess said we could not have one because they were for 4, not 2. The entire time we were there, many tables with 4 seats, were empty. The portions are small and the food is overpriced. Basically, we had one soup, one salad , one pasta, and one dessert for over $125. We will buy the Tartine baked goods and go to the other cafe, but we will not return here.
