Happy hour was great at Boxing room, they offers half price for selected oyster & sparkling wine. Good to try the hush puppies but too much flour. Nice restaurant deco & oyster bar counter.

I am a sazerac lover. We stumbled on the Boxing Room quite by accident. It is a great bar that includes a seafood bar as well. Very competent bartenders, and very friendly. We got there a bit ahead of the after-work rush, so we were...More

The food was pretty good, the atmosphere was pretty good, not too loud, not too crowded. It seems like it's a popular place before shows as it was quite packed when I initially passed by, but once 7:30 came around, it emptied out. I'd recommend...More

Sought out this place as we looked for different types of food to experience in SF. Figured there would be nothing quite like New Orleans style food in San Francisco. It is a lively neighborhood joint in Hayes Valley with a lot of neighborhood patrons...More

Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
