My college roommate and I visited the Westfield Mall for Sunday lunch. We spied the cafe while riding the escalator in the "mall under the dome." My friend ordered grilled chicken Caesar salad, a glass of white wine and I ordered the lime, cilantro shrimp...More

This restaurant is excellent any time, but especially welcome as a break from shopping. Very pleasant ambience, & you'd never know you were within a department store. It's right off the BART line, too, so it's a good place to come to get out of...More

Great service in this restaurant at the top of Nordstrom in San Francisco Center. The food is pretty good. The service is fantastic. It's a bit pricey but worth it in my opinion. I recommend it.

I had time to kill before another event that evening and wanted somewhere familiar to have lunch. I ordered the pepperoni pizza (minus the mushroom). Although it had a good taste, it was a little greasy.

I eat at this lovely restaurant almost every time I'm in San Francisco. It's a nice break from the crowded restaurants. The food is good. I love their French onion soup. It's a great spot to sit and have a conversation after work.

Most people visiting the San Francisco bay area gravitate to fisherman's wharf expecting to find some of the best seafood in San Francisco. You'll be surprised to learn that consistently the best crab bisque that I have found is at Café Bistro at Nordstrom's on...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
