As a foodie couple we were very impressed with the food quality. Place is not very fancy from the outside and little bit small from inside. We got Salamon roll and sea bass and unagi. I totally recommend all discuss

We just spent a week in San Francisco and Sonoma and this was the best meal by far. The restaurant is small and the tables tightly packed. The dishes came out fast so there was no lingering between courses. But the food was amazing. We...More

The House is a small, cramped, and packed restaurant that primarily serves Asian style seafood dishes. Even with 7pm dinner reservations on a Saturday night, I had to wait about 15 minutes for a table to open up for two. The waiter recommended the Grilled...More

This is a casual Asian Fusion restaurant that is in the non-touristy section of Chinatown. The food is excellent: I had the mussels in miso soup appetizer and Alaskan Halibut, and both were terrific. Even the desserts were good. There is a small wine list.

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.

The prices are not outrageous or anything to worry about unless you are on a tight budget. The portions are not huge but it is worth it. I would say it is midrange for SF and KBcolumbus is correct on the ranges. To quote... More

You may call them at (415) 986-8612. Reservation is highly recommended unless you go there a few minutes before opening: 11:30 for lunch and 5:30 for dinner.

Not exactly sure what the question is here. This place is a trendy fusion restaurant. It's crawling with tech-savvy yuppies. The food is mediocre at best, and overpriced from my point of view. In SF, people go with the... More
