I just spent a rather awesome week in Northern CA. Awkward scheduling left me only one night for dinner in SF (stupid... I know) but managed to get into Farallon based on a friend's rec and the recent Gourmet article.

Let me say that I thought the atmosphere was very cool with the Dale Chihuly lights, etc. However, I think the kitchen must have been having a bad night. It took 45 minutes to get a RAW appetizer (of particularly deliciouis oysters) and another 45 minutes to get an overcooked entree of CA white sea bass with greasy fingerling potatoes. The other people in my party were pleased with their food so I guess only my entree suffered from the wait.

Our server was a bit irritating, calling my grandmother "milady" and saying "cheers". That may just be my issue though.

Anyway, I'm just interested to know if anyone else has had a similar experience there. The last postings I saw on the site were from 2002.

Thanks!
