Visited here a few times over the years, but never rated it for some reason. Itís located in the Mission District with lots of ístuffí happening all around. Fun area. Inside is very small but cozy with kind of a cross between British pub and Belgian beer bar ambiance. The servers were friendly and knowledgable. The selection of beers is always good with some of the more regular locals and a few interesting things. I got a Cascade Gingersnaps sour that was one of my favorite beers this year. Other stuff from Craftsman, Moonlight etc. The prices were very high, but thatís to be expected in SF. Itís also very close to BART with other place ticís nearby. Someday Iíll have to try the food.

Visited on a Saturday evening during SF Beer Week 2014. The place was packed, but we were lucky to have some seats at the bar. During our visit they had only American sours on tap and in bottles, who could dismiss that? Nice service despite a full bar and restaurant. I wonder how this place is during a normal Saturday? For an Enropean no problem with the prices, cheaper than at home. Would like to try the food next time, it looked really tasty.

Quite small place, some interesting beers on tap and more in the bottle cellar. Might get very crowded easily.

Had a fun time at Monkís. Admittedly, I was a little buzzed this time of night after doing the rounds of a handful of establishments. Solid taplist and plenty of bottles to chose from. Got chatting to friendly folk at the bar and shared good banter. Staff were great.

Ottimo risto-bar con una cucina ricercata e buona per gli standard americani, bunoa scelta di birre servite con il giusto bicchiere.

For many years this was my go-to place in San Francisco, but thatís changed. The prices have gone up, up, up -- $8.50 for a pint of a fairly routine beer, $17+ for a burger. The staff is astonishingly rude to customers: On a recent visit a staffer complained someone at the table next to mine was drinking too slowly and would have to drink faster or leave. (The beer, which I had also ordered, was served about 10 degrees too cold.) The beer list is excellent -- great mix of California beers, national names and internationals too. But itís become an absurdly overpriced and uncomfortable place to be.
