I am not generally big fan of prime ribs, more into beef filet mignon and lamb, but this is special place. My local SF friends/colleagues took me there, and I was blown away. Beware: you need reservations well in advance, only my well connected friend...More

Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
