House of Prime Rib has the best prime rib anywhere. I compare every prime rib meal and no others measure up. You have to plan ahead and get a reservation but they will take some walk-ins but you need to go early.

Make a reservation in advance. This place is very popular and is very busy. There is a rather large lounge area so you can wait and have drinks. If you love prime rib then go. If you're a picky eater or don't eat meat... go...More

Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
