I hate to leave less the glowing reviews because I would like to believe that most establishments are always trying to improve so maybe I caught them on an off night. I went for a friends birthday party. She had made a reservation for 16....More

I love Spanish and Basque food, so I've tried a few places in the Bay Area already. Bask is by far the best one yet. Family owned: husband is from Toulouse, the wife has ties to San Sebastián in Spanish Basque. The food was very...More

The food was very tasty. The service was average. When we should pay the restaurant charged us twice for the tip.

After several trips to Spain we are always looking for the flavor we experienced there. Bask is the real deal. Of course, great croquetas and paella. But it was the squid in ink and the mushrooms in cream sauce that took us back to Spain....More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
