Visited on a last minute reservation during a busy day. They managed to get us a table (for 2), although the place was packed. Staff is very warm and helping. Steaks were great as also the sides (loved the spatzle and cheese). Will definitely come back here. Very interesting wine card (international).

Definitely going back....beautifully set out with view over the Bay bridge and the food was stunning...Pan fried scallops to start and a bone-in strip for mains...both beautifully prepared and plated. Very nice wine list and excellent service. Looking forward to going back! Great job team

This restaurant sits right on the Bay with fabulous vistas of the Bay bridge and waterfront. The interior of the restaurant is historic and has a story dating back to the big fires in SF. The food and drinks were outstanding. We'll go again.

An independent location with wonderful view, next to Oakland Bay bridge. Weather is so good. We have an industrial group cocktail gathering with some 100 people, nice alcoholic drinks, nice seafood. It is relax to have some social conversation rather than the serious topic. You can walk outside and take small group pictures. No need to worry bothering the others.... More

The name is not meant to deceive I suppose. It is a very good steak. Not epic but very good. The service is great and the atmosphere is very unique. Just don't come in expecting the best steak of your life - although the 5lb steak for the table seems like an experience. Also order the spaetzle - it's like... More

The ambiance is very nice. The view is 'epic'. I've eaten here twice in my two work trips to SF. The first time was excellent. This recent time was okay. I always get the Filet Mignon at any upscale steakhouse, medium. The steak was very sizable. It wasn't cooked as well as I'd have preferred. It was late, after work,... More

The food was ok, but the prices make you expect excellent food and above average service. Prices are about 30% above the normal SF prices for the quality you get. The service wasn't above average either.

Went here for our last dinner in San Fran. We had a great view of the ocean and the bridge was lit up with lights (not Golden Gate) which was nice. We got wine to drink along with both ordering steaks. The sides of potatoes were delicious but the steaks for the price were average at best. Heard great things... More

Had to give the rating on mine and my girlfriends individual experience. The restaurant is very nice the view is outstanding and the food is excellent, however the only point that did let it down for us was as follows . Even though we were in the U.S. and I guess the legal limit to drink is lower than the... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
