We were told to come here for the burger but if you skip that part on the menu then you're not missing out. We ordered: brussel sprout chips, deviled eggs, pork chops, and of course the genius burger. We left loving everything we ordered except the burger. I mean it's good but not a reason to come here. The ambience... More

Oh.my.god, I can die happy now that I've eaten their bone marrow, it's butter like texture can wrap itself around my arteries for all I care. The Marlowe burger was amazing as was the Brussels sprouts chips (separated leaves deep fried), and their deviled eggs had the right combination of everything (I thought the pickled chili on it was the...

Tables are located so close goes h other that you can't reLy move your elbow freely.It's very uncomfortable seating and it's extremely loud. The dining room is very unattractive . It was pre set...

What a gem of a restaurant. Touted as the place for San Francisco's best burger, Marlowe didi not disappoint. I enjoyed a half dozen oysters followed by a perfectly cooked cheeseburger. Service was friendly and efficient. The place seemed to have a positive "buzz" and energy about it. It was hopping. I will definitely return.

A lively, hip restaurant in the former industrial hinterland of the docks. Small, busy, long bar with at-bar dining, very stylish modern decor (white lavatory tile style). Crammed with vocal young trendies (our daughter-in-law selected this 'happening' place for our birthday treat to her and my wife and I raised the average age considerably!) Excellent range of interesting house cocktails,... More

From the moment I got in to when I left, everything was amazingly great. Once inside, you immediately forget that the location is not great.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
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.
