Every neighborhood in San Francisco has its own personality, from the hippie chic of the Upper Haight to the hipster grit of the Mission. The Marina district boasts trendy bistros and postcard-perfect views of the Golden Gate Bridge, while Noe Valley offers quaint and quiet boutiques. Wave hello to the sea lions at Pier 39, and sample local cheese and charcuterie at the Ferry Building. Sit in on a yoga session in Dolores Park or marvel at the Dutch Windmill across from Ocean Beach.

My husband and I found this amazing and beautiful restaurant and after 3 tries, managed to snag a reservation, for lunch. (It's very popular!) Soaring rooms, impeccable service, a noise level "for grownups" with no music to talk over, and food so fresh and good we can't stop recommending it. This is a "tablecloth" restaurant, a place for a civilized meal where you feel pampered. You know right away that they care when the bread and olive oil brought to the table are so good. We shared a razor clam special appetizer and a fresh chunky Greek salad, followed by lamp chops for my husband and a lamb burger served on pita for me. The lamb was first-rate. My burger was juicy and tasty, and huge! The fries that came with were perfectly crisp. Our waiter brought me two tastes of red wine to try before making up my mind. He was very helpful, professional and pleasant without being overly friendly--the way a good waiter should be. In a time of bare-topped tables, loud music and fussy food, Kokkari stands out. Note: If you can't get a reservation online, try calling. The woman who answers is gracious and helpful.

Loved Molinari's. The business has been around since 1896...so they must be doing it right. I had the Italian Combo sandwich...which was excellent. We also tried some pasta...also great. Great food and great service at a reasonable (by SF standards) price...what could be better.

The service and the food are good, but the price is very high for the environment and experience it offers you. I felt too expensive for what they delivered. Very crowd, the tables have no space for people pass, each second you hear a “sorry, excuse me”. They have a heater that makes inside very hot and smelling food all around. Good food and service, but poor experience and environment.

SEVEN HILLS is a small neighborhood restaurant located in the romantic Nob Hill district of San Francisco. Our emphasis is on home made pasta and showcasing the best our local farmers have to offer. Our wine list was created to be extremely approachable and well suited to our cuisine. We are located on the cable car line on Hyde street. We look forward to seeing you soon...
Absolutely delightful. Loved the European sized serves - if you are used to and desire American portions beware. This location and the food are understated stylish. Flavours robustly subtle. Great sourdough, tasty chunky meatballs, exquisite and au pont al dente spaghetti with best Pinot Grigio...MoreHi Anne What a lovely review. I am so glad you enjoyed everything. Thank you for helping to spread the word about my little restaurant. See you soon I hope Regards Alexis Solomou Proprietor SEVEN HILLS

While staying in Japantown we had breakfast here both Sat and Sun. Pro tip: get here by 8:30 and no waiting.
Excellent coffee with quick refills and great service. Bacon is really worth it. One side can be split by two people it’s so thick.
Egg scrambles were interesting and creative. French toast was tasty and beautifully presented.

We finally made it to this famed restaurant after a few trips. Everything lived up to its reputation of fine Californian food, romantic atmosphere and unfuzzed service. Most memorable is the setting- 2 wood paneled rooms simply envelope you in luxurious paintings and flower arrangements. The cuisine is the right side of comfort and not too cutting edge that it takes the attention away from the conversation with your companion. The wine list is awesome even in a town well known for wines. Only wish is the tables are a little too packed in that it threatens the intimacy. 6 inches more of elbow room would be a good compromise. This is a place you want to dress up to feel the occasion and be a part of the luxury experience that is a throw back to a more genteel era. Will be back dressed chic.

This is a small diner-type place; very unassuming with a friendly wait staff. The menu is limited, which is probably a good thing meant to ensure the food is fresh and prepared with care. Besides the regular menu, there are a few specials posted on a board. I had the dinner portion of the scallops and my wife had the prawns. The plate is typical "modern"; the main course with a few veggies. We ordered dinner salads to fill out the meal and the total came to close to 80 bucks. The food was good but not stunning and you sure aren't paying for atmosphere. The next night we ate at one of the better Italian places and paid the same for full meals with wine. Anchor was good but the skimp portions for the price will keep me from coming back.

The all Italian wine list,170 labels selection represent every Region with more than a quarter devote to Sardinia in order to pair the traditional earthy flavors as well seafood influence of Sardinia cuisine. La Ciccia is a tribute to Sardinia an experience not to be missed.
La Ciccia was an amazing dinner! I total let my guard down and just enjoyed this pricey restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. I started by reviewing on TripAdvistor and just had to order the much raved about Baby Octopus Stew…. YUM YUM YUM!!!!! We ordered a pasta dish, and a second dish that I don’t remember… but it was amazing!!! We even went all out and ordered a bottle of wine for the three of us. In addition to the food, the staff was great! Save this place for a special occasion and you will not be disappointed.

The food was average at best - my fruit bowl was abysmal. The decor is nonexistent (I was squished next to a heater). The staff is abrupt. Don't even ask about the bathrooms (in a warehouse type building next door that is not kept clean and where the stalls don't lock). Not sure what all the hype is about.

Jeanne D'arc makes ordering easy by having one prix fixe menu. You pick one option from each of four areas.
The food is absolutely delicious, especially the layered avocado and shrimp dish I had for starter. Really great. My main of duck breast in sauce was equally excellent.
Service was friendly and attentive throughout, which really does the place credit.
A must visit if you are in San Francisco.
