Great food and friendly attentive service. I had the Spaghetti which were tasty and slightly spicy. My colleagues had the fried chicken and waffles and loved that too.

I live in San Francisco so I rarely head down to the Moscone area for restaurants because of usual crowds that are there for the various convention events. We had a Friday night without a plan and found this place on Open Table - decided to give it a try. The space is nice and open with a bar along... More

Came here for happy hour and the bartender was really friendly. Good food and very nice ambiance. We ordered the $1 oysters, the spare ribs and fish taco. The ribs were really good and $1 oysters can't be beat. Will definitely go back and try their dinner menu.

While scouring the internet for SF restaurants for an upcoming visit, we spotted Oola as being near our hotel and having a cool website that featured a menu that would suit my wife, adult son, and myself; we were not disappointed, I tried the flat iron steak (well cooked, but too much sauce); my wife loved her pork tacos, and...

This restaurant combines ambience with a classical options for food and wine. The menu is not War and Peace in length but this ensures quality vs quantity. The staff are professional and friendly and the background music and video entertainment definitely beats the regular sports bar TV scene. Definitely one to go when in SFO.

I was staying on Powell and looking for a cool small restaurant with eclectic menu. Oola fit the bill. Small contemporary space that doesn't get to loud which always gets a thumbs up for me in that category. I was dining solo so I sat at the bar. Wonderful friendly bartender who made a killer Martini to my specs. Menu... More

Came in for a couple of drinks and wound up eating dinner also. Pappardelle was great very tasty and fresh. The fish tacos are spicy and just enough. The mac and cheese also had a great fresh quality. Loved the bee hive drink as well!

Was traveling alone for work and went there for dinner & a pint. Friendly bar tender, good food, and nice atmosphere with old movies showing above. Cozy and quite popular, so be sure to book a table if you don't want to sit at the bar. Near the Moscone center.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
