THE CONDOR CLUB DEFRAUDED ME FOR $1,100.00. They charged my credit card $1,100.00 for a service that I was promised and never received. I spoke with both managers John and Greg who assumed no responsibility stating that it was between me and the gal. I never received any service and was still charged $1,100.00. After I receive my permit I will picket they’re place of business to share my story in an effort to help prevent this from happening to any future potential victims. I have already filed a police report and I am filing a law suit. They should be ashamed. What kind of way is this to run a business? There are plenty of respectable businesses that do not defraud their customers.
Great meal but darn they're closing at the end of June !!!! – Last night my wife and I had an excellent meal at Andrew Jaeger?s House of Seafood in North Beach.
We were also treated to a long conversation with the owner about the roots of New Orleans food, after I mentioned to the waiter that as a frequent New Orleans visitor prior to Katrina, I had been to the original back there and he brought over Andrew for a visit. Turns out we know someone in common back there and bonded. I mentioned that I am a online food review reader and occasional poster and was pleased to see positive reports on his SF place, and he then surprised me with a bombshell. He said his wife reads all the online stuff about their place and that they weren?t comfortable posting the news themselves and he asked me to do him a favor and thank everyone in San Francisco for all their support. Especially at a time when they couldn?t go home after Katrina. Unfortunately due to reduced volumes since the SFPD have begun cracking down on late night folks in the area, the volume of foot traffic is just so low that his partners have decided to call it quits. They?ll be open for a couple more weeks, and if you want have one more great meal or visit with Andrew, he?ll be around until June 20th.
Another great loss for SF. Very sad. What a nice guy.
New Orleans specialties served up in a jazz-infused boite. – The Scene
The historic Condor Bar has gotten a Creole makeover. A front "juke joint" features cushy, red leather booths as a band--playing blues and jazz nightly--dominates the front. A narrow bar area connects the music lounge to an expansive, classy dining room, decked out with mirrors and hanging fabric screens. Servers clad in black with cropped white tuxedo jackets exude come-as-you-are charm.
Crescent City specialties are the focus, and owner/chef Andrew Jaeger's Louisiana roots ensure the freshest seafood will be sauteed, baked, grilled, blackened or fried to lip-smacking perfection. Plump, flash-fried oysters and spinach drizzled with creamy blue cheese sauce served atop baguette slices are standout starters, but turtle soup arrives way too salty. For entrees, bold, flavorful bouillabaisse overflows with fresh mussels, scallops, tender hunks of alligator and fish, while landlubbers opt for juicy rib-eye steaks. Desserts, like a refreshing mango lemon ice, are the menu's sole departure from Southern fare.
Go For the Food.....Stay For the Party – In a city filled with crabless crab cakes, Andrew Jaeger's House of Seafood & Jazz gives Dungeness Crabs and their lovers something to write home about. Here you can taste the flavor of the spirit of New Orleans. Go for the food, stay for the party.
Good Times, Good Food, and Great Music – what a incredible place this is. There is something wrong with you if you don't have a fun experience while your there dining or in the lounge. I've been 4 times since it opened and it never dissapoints. The owner is a gregarious fella who is always smiling, is very affable, and treats all of his guests with the utmost respect. The food is good, not great. I'll give them this though, you have to pinch yourself when you get the bill. Good food at such an affordable/cheap price is a rarity in this town. The music is outstanding! Great jazz music and I think it's 7 days a week.
Eat, drink and be merry! – What else can I say! The food was terrific (Steak and Lobster), the drinks were a generous poor and the music set the mood. This is certainly a place to have a good time. The dining room has flat screen televisions on the walls so you're not out of touch with what's happening in the bar. There was also a couple of groups having dinner so it seems like a good place for a group event too. I also liked the fact that Andrew Jaeger was in the dining room checking out his operation. Parking at the city owned Vallejo Street garage made it a snap to get in and out of No. Beach. Andrew Jaeger's is definitely a little bit of New Orleans in San Francisco!
Fun New Orleans in stiff boring San Fran. – It doesn't get any better than this. Best Creole food in the world. Highest caliber of live funky jazz bands your ever going to hear. The funest Service featuring waiters who sing and dance tableside while serving in perfect french classic style? Managers who remember your name after only your first visit and make you feel special even when the there is a line out the door and the place is packed wall to wall with people eating and dancing. Everyone around us is always having so much fun. I have never experienced anyplace like this before. I don't know what they list this place under in the phone book because it is the most unique Restaurant/ venue/ Bar/ Party /Event/ Club I've ever seen. For Foodies it is a almost "religious" Restaurant experience. It will make you hate every restaurant you go to afterward.
Thank you Chris – This place has a great location, a nice balance of quaint, colorful, cozy, festive and elegant. Wine list is fairly priced and waiter Chris was kind enough to recommend some less expensive ones without an attitude, he was smilling to us all the time and we really enjoy his company, even though he was emotioned he served us with great passion. The food was fresh and preparation is unique in the pure New Orleans style. The Steak Jurisch had nice flavor medium rare just the way i like it. The prices are pretty reasonable and I really liked this place so I will come back, at least for the good service, anyway just ask for Chris to be your waiter and you will have a wonderfull experience
Very Disappointing will not recommend – I have lived in North Beach for over 45 years and was very disappointed in the service. Reservations for 6:30 seated at 7:15 waited on 7:35 and that was just for drinks. It wasn't crowed but they were busy intertaining there personal friends. I have told my friends NOT to eat at this establishment. Reservations mean obsolutely nothing.
Poor Service and food Lacking in Taste – I went there for my birthday after reviewing an article written in the SF Chronicle. I had a reservation for 7:30. I and others arrived at 7:00. They said they were not ready for use yet and to wait in the bar. The restaurant was only 20% full. At 7:30 still not seated. Finally got seated at 7:40. Restaurant was still 20% full. My friend was given a drink and the glass was stickly on the outside like it had not been washed. The waiter didn't know what kind of water they had (new waiter). Out of all the dishes I had, only the Oyster had good flavor. The soup was bland. Waiters never around to refill water glass. For the price paid, the service was poor and the food was disappointing.
