Location, service and ambience are not fantastic, but I love the food here. The dishes are generally Asian comfort food, so don’t expect fine dining here. And my 5-star here is simply because I adore good Asian comfort food. I was in SF for one...More

We visited the Crustacean several years ago and had a wonderfyl time. We returned this time and again had an oustanding dinner. Garlic and pepper crabs with white wine. Service was good as well as the ambiance. I strongly recommend if you like crabs.

Super service. Food is very tasty and well presented. Fried calamari was fresh and crispy with a delicious dipping sauce. The beef carpaccio was sensational. Tamarind crap was tasty as well. Overall, a great meal.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
