We were one of the four tables dining, all of the guests were clearly near to our ages. We are decidedly in the senior group. The music was vintage 40's, 50's, the decor was classic elegant dining, from the 50's. Table cloth linen, heavy silver,...More

We have eaten here several times and really want to like L'Oivier. The problem seems to be it is a French restaurant the has lost much of its French atmosphere. It still has escargot and French onion soup on the menu, but the servers are...More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of

narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
