Went with a party of six -- three women who were not interested in beer were left with a paltry wine selection, and a waiter whose response was "I only know about the beers." Food was below average, and for an early evening reservation they...More

Huge 50 page beer menu with tons of international and local beers to chose from. Staff were knowledgeable without being pretentious.

When you first go in, the place sees empty and you feel like leaving but....go downstairs where the action is and peruse their list of hundreds of brews, have some awesome mussels and fries and get the Belgian waffle for dessert!

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
