Dragon Well offers a fantastic blend of Flavor & Finesse. Where some restaurants try to stress their ‘authentic’ regional Chinese flavors you often find a near one-to-one correlation between the term ‘authentic’ and a ‘what was in that dish?’ experience. This is not the case...More

For our last night in San Fran, following an outstanding weekend of dining, this was a lovely way to end. As others have noted, Dragon Well has the feel of a neighborhood restaurant. The flavors were bright and clear and the ingredients fresh and healthy....More

Always filled with regulars.Relatively traditional Chinese-American menu, but very well done, indeed. Hong Kong noodles , salt and chili pepper calamari, crystal prawns among my favorites. Very nice choice of delicious vegetable dishes. Service warm and welcoming . A true neighborhood gem

Wasn't expecting much - but turned out to be a delicious meal. VERY accommodating with our allergy needs - food delicious, fresh and tasty. Located on trendy Chestnut Street - restaurant nothing much in appearance, but makes up in food quality!!

This little restaurant is located in the heart of all the action on Chestnut. Arriving without a reservation on a Saturday night, we were greeted by a very friendly front desk woman, later learning she is an owner. We scored with the front table that...More

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
