    Interesting and eclectic menu and a well-chosen wine list. The cooking style leans toward the no-nonsense and rustic. Some of the dishes are hit or miss, but all are good and honest. Fun atmosphere and the staff is terrific.

    Wow. Terrible service. Our waiter was nice - but we rarely saw him. I had to get out of my seat to repeat our order, as some items were late coming to the table. Happened again with the refill on our drinks. B44 has gone downhill.

    This is one of our favorite spots. The tapas are amazing, and the Arros Negre paella ("black rice" - i.e. squid ink) is our favorite. We always bring friends whenever they're in town. The servers have started to recognize us now, and they are really friendly and sweet. Highly recommend.

    For a weekday lunch service, I do not recommend for business lunch. The food service was slow and took forever to come out, even with simple app requests like bread and a cheese board. The food was good and overall experience was fine. I'm sure regular sized groups would have a good time but if you have a party of 7 or more, find another option.

    Food—meh. Tortilla had ok flavor but the huge dollop of alioli they put in the middle kind of ruined it for me. Cazadora paella was super oily—tasted a tinge of seafood (like the pan hadn’t been cleaned out after preparing the seafood paella). Beet/arugula salad was decent but nothing special. Noise level inside was off the charts!! Impossible to have a conversation without shouting at my friend. Service was super curt and not very friendly.

    My husband and I found this restaurant on the list for SF Restaurant Week. We ended up ordering from the main menu and not the restaurant week menu. The food was amazing! We tried a few different tapas and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere was energetic as the night went on and more diners were seated. The service was great and with only a few servers (at least that is what we saw) they worked well with one another and you didn’t have to wait long for anything. The restaurant was a little hidden, but the best places are. We will be back to try more.

    Food was delicious! It was nice that we could also order from Cafe Bastille menu. We came for Restaurant Week but ended up not ordering from that menu because the tapas were more inviting. Paella Negra was excellent.

    Dined here with a party of 3 during the SF Restaurant Week (Spring 2022). Overall the vibes were really good. The restaurant is located in an alley next to other restaurants; live music was playing somewhere nearby so it felt like a great place to sort of kick back, relax with food, and enjoy the city. For their Restaurant Week special, I ordered the Beef Empanadas with Baby Lettuce (which was really arugula) for the 1st course, Pork Tenderloin with Garlic Mashed Potatoes as the 2nd course, and the Chocolate Ganache Cake as the final 3rd course. The Beef Empanadas (3 of them) were... okay. To be completely honest, I wouldn't be surprised if they were frozen and then just baked. It didn't taste mind-blowingly different that ones I've had from the supermarket frozen section which was kind of disappointing. Probably something I wouldn't get again as a standalone appetizer dish. The Pork Tenderloin was pretty good, lots of interesting flavors you'd expect from a quality restaurant. However, I felt that it was kind of overseasoned with salt to the point where it stole the spotlight from the unique flavors of the dish. I strongly felt that the salt was especially noticeable in the aftertaste, after chewing through it then feeling a somewhat salty sensation on your tastebuds. The Chocolate Ganache cake was decent too. Not too sweet and something that would be great for sharing with the rest of the table since the slice is pretty big and also filling.

    Lovely lunch in the more or less outdoor area of B44 was stellar. My companion enjoyed her salmon and salad...yummy avocados...and I slurped up the mussels. Service delightful...as were dessert and coffee. Noise eventually subsided to conversation level OK. People are back in offices! And dining here.... Check it out.

    Overall not bad but probably won't be back again. The quiche Lorraine was not what we expected and came with a lot of fries on the side (as filler probably). The paella was also not great. The texture of the rice was nothing like the paellas we experienced in Spain. However their cocktails were excellent (kudos to their mixologist) and the calamares fritos were spot on as was overall friendliness of the staff.
