I really think I need to stop trying the "most popular" SF restaurants. Went here on sat night, and what a disappointment. Every single thing we ordered was terrible starting with the smoked trout confit. It was completely dried out, extremely salty, and served with stale, tasteless crackers we could barely choke down. Next was a romaine salad with ricotta salata...also too salty and bland...I know...how do you make something too salty and bland at the same time...at this point...since we order a course at a time...we decided to split a pasta dish...also terrible...and I cannot even remember what it was. We were so disappointed in every dish we ordered at that point, we skipped entrees and dessert. I went home and finished a leftover veggie sandwich which provided more satisfaction than anything I had at Delfina. Its a shame because the staff is very nice.
The pizza joint is pretty good, but Ive had better.
