What People Are Saying

The Sherwood SF About Us

After a few awesome weeks of having our doors open, we couldn’t help but notice people sharing their positive experiences here online. We’ve gathered some of our favorite feedback from locals and out-of-towners and just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all of you who have supported us so far. If you’ve had a good time at The Sherwood, we’d love to hear from you!


Here’s what folks are saying: 

“It’s a beautiful looking, new space in West Portal.  There was obviously much thought that went into the look and feel.  It works well to both invite you in and make you stay! I enjoyed browsing through their craft cocktail list.  The drinks are creative but not so funky that they would give you pause. I decided to have a few “Stairways to Heaven” after my starter martini. Delicious-really!  My non-bourbon drinking partner wound up having a few too. Drinks are $15.  Cards are accepted.  Service was good. Their outdoor parklet offers quite a lot of additional seating and is also nicely designed…”

-Thomas, San Francisco. 9/12/21

Thank you Thomas! We’re glad you and your partner enjoyed the “Stairway to Heaven”. There’s a reason why it’s our featured cocktail!


“A new addition to the West Portal neighborhood, the Sherwood takes the place of the old Portals bar, in a completely redesigned space. It’s very elegant inside, with high ceilings and comfortable seating. The outside parklet is spacious and has plenty of space between tables. Drinks are $15 for cocktails and $7 to $8 for beers. They have a very good selection of beers of all kinds. I tried the old fashioned on tap, and it was delicious. I think this is a great place and a good higher end alternative to the other drinking establishments in the area.”

– Brad, San Francisco. 9/2/21

We’re glad you enjoyed your visit, Brad! We’ve worked hard to create an elevated, higher-end experience for the West Portal neighborhood.


“Great little cocktail lounge in West Portal. Beautifully designed interior, especially the bathroom. $15 cocktails but they were relatively large. Large bar and some comfortable seating areas in the front and back. Will definitely be coming back here! Wide range of beer, they even had hard kombucha!”

-Jordan, Walnut Creek. 8/26/21

Thank you for noticing the bathroom, Jordan. It’s one of our favorite touches as well! We’re excited to have you back soon.


“This bar is beautiful!! Love the cozy yet modern vibe. There’s a lot of seating inside (bar, fireplace couches) plus ample seating outdoors. Cocktails were delicious as well! Will definitely be returning!”

-Tharu, New York City. 8/11/21

We’re so glad you picked up on the cozy yet modern balance we worked hard to create. Coming from a New Yorker that means a lot, we’ll see you next time Tharu!


“Great bar. Friendly bartenders. Awesome drinks!” 

-Kim, San Francisco. 9/11/21

Short. Simple. Sweet. One of the best kinds of reviews we could ask for, Thank you Kim!


“Went last weekend for the first time! Drinks were amazing and I’m obsessed with the copper goblets!” 

-Natalie, San Francisco. 9/11/21

We are obsessed with our copper goblets too, Natalie! Thank you for noticing, hopefully we’ll see you again soon.


“Great time there last night. Elegant and casual combined.”

-Peter, San Francisco. 8/19/21

Creating a vibe that is casual yet elegant was a delicate balance to find, Thanks Peter! We’re very glad you had a nice time.


“Great cocktails, beautiful space. So happy you opened”

-Lisa, San Francisco. 8/3/21

We’re so happy we opened too and we’re especially happy to hear that you like the space and the drinks. Thank you Lisa!


“Delicious drinks, beautiful decor and friendly staff! The bees knees cocktail was so yummy and really like the free local jazz music nights! Will be coming back to this much needed addition to West Portal neighborhood.” 

-Alex, San Diego. 9/26/21

Thanks Alex! We’re very excited you got to experience the bar on a night with live jazz. Be sure to check our website or subscribe to our newsletter to get info on future live music shows and events!
