Had a lovely meal with the family at The House. Food was outstanding. We had a combination of starters which were all presented beautifully and very tasty. Only reason for the 4 and not 5 is because my mum didn't like the soft shelled crab...More

It's an okay place. We order the chicken breast and the specials of the day - tuna salad, steak and halibut. The wait was way too long, and I expected more for the price.

The food is definitely 5 star. The tuna poke was the best I've ever had and we also enjoyed the octopus appetizer. We shared the flank steak with Chinese noodles. The steak was a little chewy, but the Chinese flavors and the noodles were perfect....More

Wonderful Asian flavors and presentation on spectacular seafood dishes. This is a very small and unassuming restaurant with its door just off the main Columbus drag. It presents with little fanfare and no real front end to the restaurant, and with tight and fairly basic...More

The place is small and busy, book a table in advance. Had the deep fried salmon rolls and beef with wasabi noodles, both excellent. Service is good and prices ok. Recommended.

Grab some books, then grab a meal here. Delicious, fragrant asian food. Our kids (15 and 12) loved their udon noodles, one with pork, the other vegetables and curry. Sea bass, and salad with scallops and tempura was prepared beautifully.

Best meal we had while in San Francisco on our 3 days visit! Highly recommended the steak with wasabi noodles!

This restaurant was just around the corner from our hotel, and had good reviews, so we tried it. Best meal I've had in a long time. And service was equally good. Tiny place, so be sure to call ahead.

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
