Went this past Saturday night for a pre-Father's Day dinner. It's pricey but delicious. Chicken and waffles may be the best I've had. Don't miss the BBQ shrimp and ask for extra bread to sip up the sauce. Love the lemon cake for dessert. Big...More

The menu was interesting, but our short rib was dry, the shrimp were overwhelmed by garlic, and the atmosphere -- loud dining room, spare decor -- disappointed. Not terrible, but definitely not worth the hype.

A friend spent days raving about this place so we treated ourselves to our final dinner of our San Francisco trip by booking a table for 7 at Town Hall. The food exceeded expectations. We shared several of the 'classics' whilst most went with the...More

Went in for a quick lunch bet2ween meetings and was surprised by the reasonable prices, big servings, and quick service. Great spot for lunch. One note- the shoestring fries are really hard to eat without making a mess.

After coming here for over 8 years, it's nice to know some things never change. The menu is pretty much the same and the food is consistent. It's like comfort food in a comfy setting, a cool place to people watch. My husband and I...More

The downstairs can be noisy, so selecting the upstairs private dining room for a group of 20 was an excellent choice. The service and food were excellent, and we were able to mix, mingle and talk.

The restaurant is located very near all the high rise construction in the downtown core. They have a great menu. The southern fried chicken sandwich is a flavor explosion. It is just the right amount of breading and spices. It was a great lunch with...More

This restaurant has some of the best food in the Bay Area. My top picks are the barbecue shrimp appetizer, and the butterscotch chocolate pudding (it's perfect), and any main course that has ever arrived at my table. However, I just reread my last review...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
