There are some really excellent dishes at Prospect. I love whatever fish they are serving because it is always very fresh - the Alaskan halibut or local black cod are my two favourite go-to dishes. While I do not eat pork, friends of mine report...More

Sibling to Boulevard. Nice "American" food and friendly but really slow service. Sparse decor and modern noisy echoing ambience. Glad we tried it but unlikely to return.

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

Yes, Prospect does have private dining rooms for groups. Just go to their website and click on "Private Dining." You can just Google the restaurant's name in San Francisco.
Is your restaurant noisy? Can adults have a civilized conversation without raising their voices?
