Several years ago we went to Yabbies per a recommendation from a concierge at the W Hotel. We had possibly the best crab cakes I had ever tasted. So when we returned to the city we decided to return. We were so disappointed. We should...More

Yabbies Costal Kitchen has one of the best Sunday brunches around. I haven't found a brunch spot that has come close to the delicious flavors of their menu. Seven days a week for dinner Yabbies serves up tasty fresh seafood such as sesame crusted ahi...More

Great food, great wine. Healthy choices and did I say great wine? but ask twice, I thought I was drinking $4 wine off the happy hour menu...ohhh no it was $12 a glass. It was good but the check surprised me.

Cute neighborhood, nice restaurant, and great food. Only a few tables and service started off pretty slow, but after that was fine. Not sure what service would be like if it was busy. If you like cioppino you must try it here. The roasted red...More

2 adults-2 kids shared the Thursday-nite special, a clam-bake style dinner w/lobster, crab, shrimp, muscles, clams, corn on the cob and potatoes. We all needed the walk back to our hotel. Great food, reasonable price (Actually great for the big-city). Will DO again and soon.

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
