Anyone tried the Julius Castle recently? All reviews older here [San Francisco]
Got a recommendation for this place for my mom's 85th.
I ate here 20 yrs ago, but have read mostly negative reviews since.
It did close & re-open. Just wondering if things might have
improved lately? Would love a recent review.
Also, considering Greens for a view....
and not sure where else for views, but did receive some
nice recommendations for non-view places. Thanks! :-)
I think Julius's Castle is the kind of place that locals avoid, which is why there aren't a lot of reports. I might risk it for brunch -- that's when the view is best, and how badly can you mess up brunch? -- but not for dinner.
A couple of other places with views you might look at are Waterbar and Epic Roasthouse -- both are new, both have had mixed reviews, but if you're dead set on a view, they might be some of the better choices.
Walked down the Greenwich steps from Coit Tower on Sunday and saw a notice of hearing (October 2) posted on Julius Castle. The domain name juliuscastlesf.com was registered last month. Wonder what's afoot.
Yesterday's Inside Scoop quotes the owner as saying he wants to “keep the [food] tradition to the greatest extent possible, and hopefully bring the food to a new level at the same time.”
The restaurant's website has nothing on food plans, but interestingly has a .pdf of of the as-built plans for you architecture buffs.
