If memory serves, Fog City Diner once was the subject of a "They don't take the American Express card" television commercial. If so, that policy has changed because mine was accepted. I gather, from another reviewer, so have the building and the menu changed. I...More

Their motto is get in here, and you should. Offbeat but not crazy food, like Brussels sprouts, (recommended) and their take on a French dip the Saigon dip. Excellent. And the best fries anywhere, period. Great burger if you are not so adventurous.

Found this little diner by accident. We couldn't find the place we were looking for so stopped in this diner. Four women looking for a nice meal before heading back to Ohio. We decided to sit at the end of the counter where we could...More

Years ago this was a favorite spot. After a bad spell, Fog City is back. Food is super tasty and creative. The small and large plates are fun to share and portions generous. We particularly enjoyed the Deviled Eggs, Broccoli, and heavenly Brussel Sprouts. The...More

There was nothing to dislike. From the start this was a true dining experience. Our server, Vedran, was great. We ordered our drinks, both of us wine, and were served fairly quick. For appetizers I had the Eggplant Baba Ganoush, and my friend the Deviled...More

Solid range of options from old stand by offerings to pretty creative California style options. Very casual. Very attentive. Great location.

We returned all excited for our first experience of the "New" Fog City. So very disappointed. Service was good, reservation prompt, and ambiance SO different. All the old "comfort diner food" is gone and now it all seems a bit too "trendy" and "current". Helpings...More

We had dinner here. The menu was fine, the food okay, prices high but not crazy but on a Saturday night, the service was very slow.

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.
