Haven't been back to San Fran for 2 years, But this little place is what and why we come back, Tiny in size but big on taste and innovation can't go past the tuna tartare or wasabi noodles. I have never had an average meal...More

I like to spend the day in the city and try a new restaurant. This time was The House. If you're coming by on a weekend afternoon, it might be a good idea to have a reservation, as it can get full inside. Here is...More

샌프란에 올때마다 꼭 빼놓지 않고 가는 레스토랑입니다. 원래는 한국분들에게 그다지 유명한 것 같지는 않은데 올해 부터는 한국분들도 많이 보이시더라구요. 제가 제일 좋아하는 메뉴는 비프와사비누들과 폭찹입니다. Warm wasabi house noodles (Angus flatiron steak) * Kurobuta pork chop (pomegranate currant sauce) * 진짜 맛있으니 꼭 드셔보시길 ㅠ_ㅠ...More

We went in for a family celebration, had wine, and eight people, lots of "small plates" and meals which were all good. Unfortunately that is where the good news ends. The service wasn't good. When you go for this type of meal, and you are...More

Party of 8, place was packed which is always a good sign. Service was friendly and food really tasty. Stand out dishes were the prawn dumplings to start and the rib eye Angus beefsteak cooked to perfection.

Located in North Beach, which has a great many Italian restaurants, this little house serves very nice Asian-fusion cuisine. In addition to their regular menu, they have nightly specials. Be sure to make a reservation because the place was packed. Wait staff was very helpful...More

Wow!!! This was a restaurant recommended by our tour guide and was definitely a great tip! Whilst we couldn’t get in until 9:30 it was well worth the wait, and they were quick to get our meals out. The scallops were a highlight, and everyone...More

Following research, for my one free SanFran lunch, I walked from our delightful Monte Cristo Bed & Breakfast (600 Presidio Street), to The House in Chinatown. SO GLAD I did. A beautiful walk through several SF neighborhoods (including Nob Hill - what a treat!) brought...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
