Zarzuela is the best Tapas place in San Francisco. I love their food, wines and the environment. Everybody is so friendly here.

We've dined at Zarzuela previously, and thoroughly enjoyed their offerings, but on a weekend, found the noise level difficult. We denied there on a Wednesday, and our experience was perfect. We could hear one another speak, and of course the food was even better than...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
