Michael Bauer Really, Really Can't Stand the Balboa Cafe

 And here I thought he always loved neighborhood joints.

Except for this.

  1. I can't comment one way or the other as I've never been there but...bravo! Too many restaurants in SF are just mailing it in. "Oh, yeah, well you're from out of town and don't know how good we are." No, I've eaten, and at one time worked, in restaurants my whole life and I know good service and good food when I'm presented with it. I also know when I'm being "jobbed". An honest review should not be seen as a bad thing IF management sees it as a wake up call. If they don't, well there's plenty of other places to eat, even on Balboa. I'll say this: those crab cakes and that Balboa Burger look.......uninspired.

  2. Makes me want to go there if Bauer doesn't like it.
