I eat at this lovely restaurant almost every time I'm in San Francisco. It's a nice break from the crowded restaurants. The food is good. I love their French onion soup. It's a great spot to sit and have a conversation after work.

First the positives: - If you get a table near the window or on warmer days/evenings on the outside patio, the view is quite nice as you are up on the 7th floor overlooking Powell street. - The service was excellent. The waiter was very...More

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
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
