WOW!!! - San Francisco Restaurants look out – Unbelievable!! I've lived in San Fancisco for 40 years and have just discovered the Gold Mirror after it's grand re-opening. So far I've dined there 6 times since it's grand re-opening and each time the food, service and atmosphere has been excellent. My wife and I have been dining out every Saturday night in SF for the last 20 years and the Gold Mirror is our new favorite. I ordered the Veal Scallopini mushroon and my wife had the Petrale which was very fresh and cooked perfectly. Extraordinary! So far we have tried a different dish during each of our visits and each week we fall in love with each new entree we try. Don't forget to stick your head in the kitchen and thank Master chef Giuseppe and his sons Domenico and Roberto. You can't say that you are SF native if you haven't been to the Gold Mirror.
sorry, very disappointed! – well, i have been to virtually every Italian Restaurant in the city, but, I must say this was definetely below average! There are plenty other good italian restaurants in the city. there so called fresh fish was not good, and there service was very rude especially the waiter with the glasses.
Pure Gold – I have lived in the Sunset all my life and had often seen the Gold Mirror while driving past, and finally decided to take everyone there for my mom's birthday. INCREDIBLE FOOD! Our table ordered the lasagna which my kids loved, the scallops, the salmon infused with lemon, the homemade ravioli, and the roasted chicken. Each entree was done to perfection. The waitstaff were courteous and attentive. The bartender, when we first arrived, immediately gave our kids some Ritz crackers and entertained them with "a rolling lime under a napkin" trick. The hostess was lovely. Highly recommended. Reservations are definitely required as the place was very crowded even at 5pm on a Sunday.
Welcome Back Gold Mirror! – After being closed for over a year, the restaurant is remodeled and beautiful! It still has the same feel, and the food is still excellent. Josephina, the owner and hostess, is happier than ever and her friendly face is a welcome sight for the Sunset again.
Editorial Review – Italian cuisine for more than 40 years, including pasta, seafood, steak and more. Private banquets are available.
N.Beach - Look Out! – What a hidden gem of an Italian pleasure in the sunset. The minestrone is a bit salty and thick for my taste, but some may prefer it. However, the avocado/crab (super fresh) salad is wonderful. Ask for oil & vinegar on the side and a sprinking of blue cheese. The melon with prociutto had the ideal sweet/savory combo going on. And, the spaghetti with mushrooms (we shared) was traditional and quite good. Only our 3rd (yes 3rd!) basket of bread was warm. Our starter cocktails were a hit, and then we moved on to a average but good pinot grigio. The exceptional service and unique meditereanean and almost middle eastern temple-decor flare ambiance along with the local flavors make for a very nice experience in all.
Kitschy fun – What a fun experience. The Gold Mirror like a time travel experience back to 1958. This is the kind of place Bucca di Beppo tries to immitate, but the Gold Mirror is an original.
Want a dinner you can't refuse? – Excellant place! wonderful service, great food, an a really cool bar with two color lighting panels and christmas lights. What a great neighborhood place! We had a Chicken Romana which was *hudge* and a rigatoni with meat sauce which was great and their tieramisu was wonderful. Great old world Italian place which wiped the black and white tiled floors of most North Beach haunts I've been to.
A local favorite – The best sweetbreads in SF! I'm sure the other things as just as fine, but I am hooked on the sweetbreads. The service is perfect. The prices are right.
