Nice food, with a touch of European cuisine, nice ambience, polite staff. It took them a while to get our order but we were quite happy to discover the food was worth it. I found that the only thing that was missing was that the music should have been a bit louder, it was barely audible and this took something... More

Had a snack and a couple cocktails and a wine at the bar area last week. The Manhattan's were well made and the Seghesio for $12 was great. We had some "hot" nuts that were very hot yet tasty, oysters (delish) and some cheese. Excellent :)

A very creative menu and everything was perfect. Both the cod and the salmon were excellent. A very well thought of wine menu. Good ambiance with high ceilings - even though the place was crowded, it was not loud.

My 5th meal at Salt House was less impressive than all the previous ones. While menu is sophisticated and creative a few negatives affected this last dinner: 1) Waiter brought my aperitif after the first appetizer showed up - that's not the way its supposed to be, especially since I ordered the aperitif first thing first; 2) the waiter did...

Salt House is our go to restaurant for important milestones like my daughter's 21st birthday. They are known for their seafood dishes but also have other meats for people who prefer them. The cocktails are excellent and have an extensive wine and beer selection for those who prefer lighter fare. And, last but not least, is their staff consisting of... More

There were 5 in our party. We had a reservation for 6:15. Friendly and attentive staff. Not sure if this was due to less than capacity crowd, or the norm, but we enjoyed great service. Upscale atmosphere. We sampled several apatisers and small plates, then split 2 entrees, the chicken and the pork. The food was excellent, fresh, and had... More

The service the night we went was so slow. We waited close to 15 minutes just to get the glasses of wine we ordered, then another 35 minutes for the appetizer. They were out of bread, and the main course took over 1 hour 20 minutes to get from the time we sat down. We saw our server once the... More

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.
