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! :-)
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.
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.
