We had our wedding reception at Twenty Five Lusk, and it was an absolute dream. The space is gorgeous and perfectly captures the urban/rustic mix we love so much about San Francisco itself. We reserved the bottom floor, with a mix of banquet seating and lounge seating, which encouraged our guests to mix and mingle and made our wedding a fantastic party. The secret tunnel of rooms behind the bar became our favorite feature of the night, too: my (now) husband and I were able to hide back there during the dinner portion and enjoy our dinners in peace while peeking through the small window at our guests enjoying themselves in the main area, and later in the night groups of friends circulated back there, enjoying the secrecy of it all.Sent on 11/24/2016
And while we chose Twenty Five Lusk because of the gorgeous space (and as noted above, it well exceeded our greatest hopes), the food and drinks were AMAZING ended up stealing the show. Our guests STILL rave about how good the food and drinks were!
And the service at Twenty Five Lusk was absolutely fantastic. Planning a wedding is stressful, especially where you're doing all of the planning yourself (as we were), and Twenty Five Lusk went way above and beyond, even arranging for us the rental of cocktail-height tables and linens to match with our aesthetic. And all of this--gorgeous space, divine food, fantastic service--at a fraction of what we would have paid for ANY other reception option in San Francisco (we know, because we did extensive research).
Like our decision to get married, choosing Twenty Five Lusk for our reception is one of the best decisions we've ever made. We can't recommend them enough!

I organize 8-10 corporate events/year at 25 Lusk. The staff, execution, and professionalism are top notch. Countless folks who attend have such a great experience they ask about hosting their own event here.Sent on 02/22/2015

Planning a wedding is a series of small choices that amount to a grand event. Choosing a venue, however, is a big decision that will lay the foundation for your special day. I’m eternally grateful that we chose Twenty Five Lusk for our reception – the venue itself, along with the staff, set the perfect tone for all of the memories & feelings I’d later associate with the journey. We dreamt of a wedding that oozed SF style at a unique venue. We wanted intimate, yet grand; personal & comfortable; stylish & elegant. Lusk gave us all that & more!Sent on 02/20/2015
There are unique spaces upstairs and down, all while maintaining a beautiful openness. The stunning decor incorporates elements like brick & steel & wood in a modern and classy way.
Cocktail hour was perfect, the appetizers were a homerun (get the tempura shrimp), and the bar service was flawless.
Dinner was next. By “dinner” I mean the best wedding food EVER. Our guests raved about Chef Matt Dolan’s creations. Plus, the kitchen handled any food allergies and preferences with care & ease (BIG plus). Lusk’s pastry chef delivered a flawless croquembouche, a classic French dessert of layered profiteroles – just another example of stellar service.
Dancing & schmoozing continued after dinner and our 100 guests never felt cramped or squished. Lusk created an intimate feel with space to dance, sit & relax. The small rooms behind the bar were a great escape for older guests.
As a bride, enjoying your reception can be difficult, simply because it’s a whirlwind of people & pics & pleasantries. You’re pulled in a million directions, but Lusk’s endless attention and care allowed me to enjoy every second of my evening.
NO regrets – Lusk set the perfect scene for our exceptional party. They delivered great food, drink, & service - the bartenders were kind & accommodating; the servers were gracious & helpful. Special thanks to Christine, whose exceptional work ethic helped make memories that I’ll cherish forever
