We were disappointed to return to Ristobar only to find it is closed for renovations. It's not clear when it will reopen, or if it will reopen either as Ristobar or something else. Too bad.

Beautiful dining room. The trompe l'oiel ceiling is hand painted. Food was fantastic. We shared an appetizer and entree. The cheesecake was a delightful small size. Enough to enjoy the indulgence.

The food was average at best and expensive. We were very disappointed in the service and they weren't even really busy. We will not go back

Room for the restaurant is very inspiring with typical paintings. Food is also good level. I recommend this restaurant as well as Pacific Height area.

Food here was good - the mussels appetizer was flavorful (although one mussel had some sand), the burrata salad was fresh, and the prosciutto was very good (would've been even better with a bit more prosciutto). Wine list was very overpriced, so we settled for...More

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
