You can't go wrong eating here either for lunch, before the symphony or just because you're hungry. Everything is tasty and the service is attentive. I like that it's intimate-easy to get to if you're local and can take public transportation. Now that Hayes Valley...More

This small restaurant serves delicious food. It was bit loud, with a few people at the bar shouting and laughing, but despite the noise, a good meal. I started out with the cheese balls ... very tasty. Then, my main course was the pork ribs,...More

We took a chance as Wednesday evening walk-ins after having a Brazilian friend recommend Minas. After being pleasantly greeted, we were seated, given menus and were presented with an amuse-bouche of chicken pate that was delicate and flavorful. Having arrived between 5:00 PM and 7:00...More

This place is a fun place to go. I highly recommend it. It's festive and the food is really good. Try the Samba Explosion it's enough for two people so drink responsibly.

Small and crowded but don't let that dismay you. The ambience and friendly energy of the service staff more than makes up for the lack of space. The four of us sampled a number of the dishes, including: the Po de Queijo Baked Brazilian cheese...More

Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
