We went twice during our stay in sfo. The food is a real delight. We had noodles the first time and meat the second time. So tasty. Highly recommended

A bit expensive Asian fusion restaurant but tastes good and quite popular. BFF recommended the sea bass and I love sea bass. It was grilled perfectly and moist. A nice slice of fish with delicious tasting green beans and ok garlic noodles, $31. Hubby had...More

Excellent asian-cali restaurant with creative and delicious dishes. Reasonable priced, very friendly and attentive service. Cool and stylish atmosphere, a true retreat from the Chinatown hurly-burly. Family friendly

Wonderful family-owned restaurant located at intersection of Chinatown and North Beach (Grant and Columbus Sts) Small and cozy, be sure to get a dinner reservation so you can grab a seat and enjoy a fabulous array of dishes.

In searching for unique Asian fusion cuisine, this caught my attention. It also had great ratings on TA. The restaurant is somewhat small with maybe 12 tables, but packed with guests. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and explained all the the food choices....More

Came here for lunch with my husband. Ordered 2 appetizers and 2 mains. Everything was generally very good! The oysters were fresh and very creamy and the spicy vinegrette sauce makes them super yummy. Even though it had some shells in the oyster, but hey...More

After a long anticipated visit to The House for what I heard would an incredible pork chop turned out to be a tremendous disappointment. The pork chop had excessive fat throughout. It was hard to tell at first since it was smothered in a pomegranate...More

I have to mention that they graciously accommodated us despite the fact that we were 30 minutes late! Dishes came super fast and everything was delicious. Octopus and steak with noodles were highlights. My least favorite was Ribeye as it was too large but not...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.

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
