Absolutely wonderful. We had the prawns in Vodka Sauce and the Three Cheese Ravoli. Possibly the best Italian meal I have ever had. The Pear and Gorganzola salad was a perfect beginning. Huge portions. Service was flawless on a busy Saturday night. Just a wonderful dining experience. Would recommend to anyone.

I'd been meaning to check this place out; it's a cool looking building and I like the balcony seating. Tonight as I walked by I was handed a coupon for free pot stickers & green tea ice cream when an entree is purchased, so we went up. Nice enough place, old school like it hasn't been updated much since the 80's. The restaurant has been there since 1919, and I'm not sure a whole lot has been done since then actually. But I wasn't disppointed with the balcony seating and the food was good enough; entrees ranging from $10.95 for Kung Pao chicken to about $35 for crab dishes. Rice is extra ($1.95) which is a little unusual, and they were getting stingy on giving out the pot stickers (order your entree first and you'll get them "if you qualify") but overall, a good bet and I would come back.

I drive by this place every morning on my way to Golden Gate park, it's right next to the Panhandle and I always think that it looks chill and I should check it out. Today I came in and it did not disappoint. Fairly small, about 7 two-tops, some bar stools and a bigger table down the end. Coffee smells good, several loose-leaf teas and their breakfast sandwich is pretty awesome, stacked high with eggs and ham. Slightly hipster, but more just the sf neighborhood crowd.

Also known as "Mission Street Food" or "Mission Chinese Food", this place is usually packed with a line out the door and was voted best Chinese restaurant in San Francisco. I went at 2:30 on a Sunday which seems like a good time to go, because while the restaurant was about full we walked right in. The food is more of an Asian fusion than Chinese. I had a tofu type dish with rice and pork, and my friend had a porridge with egg which was kind of strange but ok. When you walk to the bathroom you passed the kitchen and there was a sign that said "do not talk to anyone in this room" which was weird.

My favorite breakfast/brunch spot in my neighborhood, maybe in the whole city. On a sunny day it's a great place to be. Big windows inside, small but still fits about seven or eight 2-tops and five 4-tops. Also several tables outside. It's on the corner of Fillmore which is a busy shopping street, but this area is kind of quiet. Good food, and at night it becomes more of a wine bar. I also like to walk over to Alta Plaza park after which is a block away, and is big but more of a locals park, with great views of SF and the Bay.

I remember this diner in a scene from "So I Married an Ax Murderer", when the main character (Mike Meyers) was sitting down with his date, and his best friend and his date. His best friend's date made some weird joke and they laughed awkwardly. At any rate, it is a diner but really an upscale sort of diner with pricey food. It's by Pier 18 I think, on the corner of Battery and Greenwich. I went during the day and it can get busy at lunch. It would be a cool date place at night.

I dined at this place for the first time a couple of weeks ago during a visit to the Bay area. The attraction was its connection to Dashiell Hammett's "Maltese Falcon" (it's mentioned as a place Sam Spade eats before running off in search of Brigid O'Shaughnessy.) The place makes the most of the connection, with a couple of items on the menu referenced in the novel, and a various momentoes of the book and the Bogart movie scattered around.

The ambiance is very much thirties and forties, dark and slightly cramped. The service is attentive without being intrusive, the bar is excellent and the food is good if not great. Price is normal for medium-high scale San Francisco restaurant, perhaps even a bit lower.

I was braced for the possibility that it would be a mediocre to poor tourist trap and was very pleasantly surprised. While it's very far from the best restaurant in San Francisco, it is good, and I'll certainly be visiting again.

The place is cramped, seating is in an L shape, with a couple tables making up the bottom and 5 or 6 on a bar stool making up the top handle. Doesn't help that it's really popular. Fresh mahi mahi, salmon, eel, shrimp, or ahi tuna on rice bowls or salads is the bulk of the menu. Ahi tuna salad is really good, but a little steep at over $15 out the door.

Cool spot, lots of healthy options. I picked up a fresh juice that was a blend of carrots, cucumbers, orange, apple, and tomato, and also a soy frozen yogurt. Both were really good. Honestly I was going to give this place a 5 but the former review was so annoying I just couldn't bring myself to do it.
