The food is delicious! It has always been perfect and remains one of my favorite places to eat in San Francisco (since I live an hour away, I visit often). There is so much competition in SF, but I've never been disappointed here.

Nice place to go with family, the coffee is delicious. It's not too expensive, it holds the same than others around.

The negative reviews made us wary, but this was very near our hotel on a rainy night, and we were pleasantly surprised. The squid-ink pasta dish (with clams and a generous amount of du genes crab) and the chestnut fettuccine with mushroom rags were both...More

containing the largest number of upscale department
stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in

locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
