We happened upon this place and could hear the jazz playing from outside. We were greeted warmly and the ambience is really lovely and the live jazz was an added bonus. Service was brilliant throughout so thanks Megan! The food was great and good sized portions. My husband had a burger and chips and I had the rotisserie chicken with... More

Been hearing about the place and they are right. The place didn't disappoint. A bit in the pricey side, good for a special occasion . Great prime rib and mash potato. Great service!

Located across from Pier 33 where the Alcatraz tour sets sail, this is the perfect spot to have a hearty meal. We were in a bit of a rush having only an hour but the service and speed of food was excellent. I went for the vegetarian burger which was outstanding along with the side of slaw. Often the vegetarian... More

Stopped in for drinks our first afternoon in San Fran and met up with some friends in the area. Cocktails are all in the $14-20 range, so be ready to pay. The drinks were great and the outdoor patio was nice.

This used to be Houston's for anyone familiar with that brand. The location is great for anyone staying near Fishermans Wharf or in North Beach. If you have a group larger than 7, be prepared to split up. We were 8 but we crammed into their largest semi-circle booth and it worked. Service, food and atmosphere were all good. We... More

Good lunch and great staff at Hillstone. We needed lunch out of the sun after an Alcatraz tour. We waited for our table by the kitchen. The chefs gave our kids hot fries keeping their spirits up and the parents sane. The fries and all the other food was delicious.

Very disappointed that we had a reservation but couldn't seem to get seated until an hour past our scheduled time. We even lost a few members of our group because it got so late and they were "over" it. The management was very nice and sent us complimentary appetizers in the bar, but to be honest, we didn't want to... More

My husband and I really enjoy sitting at the bar for a Friday evening meal. We have been here many times with friends - always the choice when ribs are desired. I have had many items on the menu but my all time favorites are - The Grilled Artichoke to start - crispy grilled with garlic and olive oil is... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
