Stopped in for a sandwich, left due to prices. 17$ for a BLT. 18 for a cheese burger. Have no idea how good the food is, just know a blt will never be worth that much. GooglePlace - February 2018

My daughter and I ate here after seeing the Nutcracker. The bartender was very knowledgeable and engaged her guests without hovering. The food was excellent; best steak I've had since moving from Texas. It was quite busy - definitely make a reservation it you'll end up sitting at the bar. Pricy, but well worth it.

Great diner-style cafe with super friendly staff and good food all around. I'd say their highlights are definitely their cakes. Try the triple layer chocolate + chocolate mousse + cheesecake if you can, and you won't regret it! They don't have much vegetarian options, but they were happy to accommodate us by switching side orders or customizing the plate, thank you for that! GooglePlace - December 2017

After taking in the sites of San Francisco while also doing some Christmas shopping, we were in search of a low key restaurant that served late-night meals. Someone in our group remembered Max's Opera Cafe. We were seated at a great table directly in front of the piano and able to interact with the piano player during our meal. I ordered one of the specials of the evening which was a fresh seafood dish of Ono that was prepared just right. GooglePlace - December 2017
