This is one of those nice restaurants where it does not feel strange to eat by yourself. The wait staff it’s nice and the food is really tasty and well thought out.

We went with another couple on June 2 for dinner. The service was slow to start. Three of us ordered the Sea Bass with couscous, French green lentils, citrus. My wife asked for potatoes instead of the couscous. I ordered it and told the server...More

We hosted about 14 people in the La Marsa room, which is located at the back, so there’s no view of the Ferry Building or the Bay Bridge, but the trade-off was well worth it for much easier conversation with the significantly lower noise level...More

The restaurant has beautiful Tuscan notes in weathered wood beams and arched brick ceilings with a great view of the Bay Bridge. Parking is also easy in the Embarcadero Center parking below, and the restaurant does validate. However, the service, although friendly, was not polished....More

I found the lighting in this restaurant too low and the noise too loud. It was hard to have a conversation. The food was good, however the prices were hard to justify.

I loved the decor and the view from the large picture windows. Loved the Moroccan chicken soup. Despite a raised ceiling with some wood surfaces, it was still about 7 on a 1-10 scale of loudness.

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
