I took clients there and they loved it. All of our food (and service) was excellent. We ordered appetizers, entree and the amazing molten lava cake (which has to be ordered early). It was really great. Recommend.

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
