Actually we did not visit the resturant, but stayed outside where they have a small food truck with drink and proper espresso. Lack of espresso was killing me, so it felt like oasis:). Views to the Washington square.

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
