We ate early as we were going to the theater. The half duck and chop salad were excellent. The service was outstanding and our waiter was very knowledgeable. The neighborhood was rough depending on which streets you approach the building from. More

Edamame was quite nice, but didn't realize you have to ask for it. Mahi-mahi is always a treat. The pork chop was nice with excellent mashed potatoes. And, always finish with the souffle - don't miss it. More

French | Downtown / Union Square, San Francisco

Had a very nice lunch here last Saturday. It was not crowded at all and as a result the noise level was very moderate. It was our first time and it was very nice. The service was top notch as was the food. The menu is limited a bit but all the dishes that the four of us had were simply very good. I had the steam mussels in a tomato broth that was wonderful. Large size mussels, plump and tender, cooked to perfection. I had the creme caramel for dessert. Add a very cold beer and lunch was well worth the visit. My brother had coq au vin and that was exceedingly tender and tasty. The apple tart was to die for. Their rating is well deserved and we will go back one day. More

Discover San Francisco

Farm-to-table is everywhere now, but it was here first. Just north of San Francisco, the values-forward counties of Marin and Sonoma offer an abundance of sustainably sourced produce. Of course, there’s more to eat in the Bay than leafy greens alone—don’t miss the mainstays like Cioppino (a seafood stew best eaten with thick-cut garlic bread), Mission-style burritos, local oysters and Neapolitan pizza where pizzerias around town war for the ultimate version. The city has long been home to distinct international flavors, so for authentic dim sum, Chinatown tops the charts. The Mission is ablaze with longstanding taquerias, steakhouses and a new wave of artisanal bakeries and coffee houses. And the Fisherman’s Wharf, while touristy, is the spot for Bay caught seafood. From there, we recommend walking to Crissy Field for Golden Gate Bridge gazing and sparkling sunshine.
