My husband and I saw this restaurant reviewed on "Check, Please" and decided to give it a try. Very glad we did! They don't take reservations but if you get there by 7pm, the wait should not be too long. They do not seat you...More

We went to Zarzuela based on a recommendation from a local. It did not disappoint. The tapas were great. We especially liked the dates stuffed with almonds and the eggplant stuffed with goat cheese. The restaurant is small and does not take reservations. That said...More

We took our four daughters for Tapas at this wonderful restaurant. The waiters were fantastic and really helpful with the menu and the food was delicious. Not a cheap meal out, but certainly worth the money. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Having live in Spain for a year and traveled all over the country, I am always pleased to find a restaurant that offer a good representation of its unique cuisine. The Zarzuela is certainly one of the better ones I've found. Being in San Francisco...More

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
