Wound up here to go to a restaurant that didn't take brunch reservations, so had lots of time to stroll the streets before our wait to be seated was over. Lots of interesting shops, a few chains thrown in (e.g., Sephora), but most local retailers...More

We wanted an economical alternative to staying in downtown SFO for a few nights before my conference (downtown) began. What a GREAT area Cow Hollow is! It is mostly residential, but there are neighborhood bars, shops, restaurants around. It was perfect. Nothing too touristy like...More

My wife and I spent in evening in this area and we're sadly unimpressed. It was quiet, dark, and only mildly interesting...and this was during a Saturday night amidst the Xmas break. It's very local-ish. But would have preferred to have been in North Beach...More
