Fifth Floor since the Manrique departure?

Curious if anyone has eaten at the Fifth Floor since Laurent Manrique's departure. I have heard nothing, either good nor bad and would like something up-to-date.

Fifth Floor Restaurant
12 Fourth St., San Francisco, CA 94103

  1. Seems like it always gets good reports for Dine About Town on here, and not much else

    1. We had a group of 7 there for a business dinner tonight. The restaurant was half empty and yet the service was still terrible. Half our group sat at the table for 10 minutes with no offer of cocktails, the rest arrived and we all sat another 10 or 15 minutes before having to tackle someone for drinks, and then the drinks came and were terrible, and the ones with flat soda were replaced only begrudgingly!

      When the food came, half of us had good but not great meals, and a couple of people had affirmatively terrible meals. We will not be going back.
