This is not a fancy place, and in fact its location and look may not be what some people are looking for...but if you want good and interesting food, this is one of the best spots in the USA. Maybe I am just a fan...More

Great meal - found this was an outstanding restaurant but the seats near the windows were cold in the winter.

The roasted chicken was absolutely amazing. Since it can take up to an hour to cook, we ordered it straightaway and then got a Caesar salad to share, while we enjoyed some wine. The salad was one of the best we've ever had. We visit...More

We had a fantastic Cuban/Italian waiter who told us that the wood oven baked chicken and the Caesar salad were the best dishes on the menu. They were excellent. The chicken takes an hour so maybe you can order ahead. They have a ton of...More

Maybe a mid-day lunch close to Christmas is a mistake anywhere, but I remember having excellent food at the Zuni cafe for many years around Christmas. Not so this time - my sea bass was way overcooked (and a little over the hill), dry, and...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
community park at its center and dozens of trendy
