Overall I liked the area but the parking sucks and it's either hard to find or you have to pay at meters to park. The shopping was great, really cool one of a kind shops with local art that I appreciated. Lots of food choices.

A few blocks on the main road with funky shops but also with sketchy people around. Tried to find something to enjoy but couldn't. Meant for young people.

If we wouldn't have had a map we would never have known we were in Nob Hill. The area did not look very nice, so we kept on driving.

Not much happening here except restaurants and bars...... no shopping.....there seemed to be quite a few vacant stores. I would suppose the night life may be pretty good.

Had this delivered to the hotel and it was really good. I added avocado. Toppings were fresh and innovative. And the cheesy rice patties were to die for. I would recommend them.
