Roy's has been consistently excellent for food, flavors, quality, and quantity. The service is also consistently excellent. In a city with many dining options, it is Roy's that we go back to over and over, when we visit the city.

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

restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
