I disagree with some of the other reviews. I thought that the food was excellent but the ambience was a bit rough. I sat at the counter and had a lovely salad followed by short ribs which came with delicious mashed potatoes and garlicy broccolini: great comfort food. I also had butterscotch pudding which was delicious. Their wine pour was... More

This is a typical small restaurant in San Francisco, full of charm!! Had the sweet potato fries for an appetizer, (starving after walking 6 hours!), YUM!! I had the braised short ribs and my son had the chicken pot pie, both were delicious and really was a satisfying meal after a long day of sightseeing! Skip the celebrity chefs (Wayfare... More

I had the salmon and risotto, risotto could have been cooked a little more. A cute place, but once we got our food we were pretty much forgotten.

The blue cheese burger was excellent. The french fries were just average. They were home made but too dry. The place is fine with possibility to watch the cook.

We LOVED our meal at Nob Hill Grille….excellent food (try the burger and truffle fries!) good beer and a relaxed atmosphere was just what we needed after a day of sightseeing. The roasted chicken was also delicious. The service was great!

I went there on my own and ended up with a table right by the door. The menu is relatively small I wanted to try most of the items listed. I ended up with the salad (very fresh with tasty dressing) and as a main I had the chicken with quinoa and kale, with lightly sautéed zucchini. It felt healthy... More

Our daughter lives about 1 1/2 blocks from this great spot so we have been a few times, once for breakfast and twice for dinner. It is always really good. And very fairly priced for the quality of food you get. We have sampled much of the menu and everything has been good to very good. Be sure to try... More

The Fairmont concierge recommended it - perfect. We blended in with the locals, many of whom were regulars. This is exactly what we look for when on the road. An unpretentious place with friendly service and excellent food. The truffle fries - excellent The chicken pot pie - homemade and comfortably cozy The brussel sprouts & bacon - comfort food... More

Booked via OpenTable, we mistakenly went to Nob Hill Cafe first! Still got here in time for reservation. Shown to our table and don't be put off by appearance - the food here is excellent. Our party of four had Swordfish or Short Rib Beef, with a variety of accompaniments - all good. The table next to ours were so... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
