We were visiting here for the weekend and my husband booked us in for an early Valentine's Day dinner. We all had to arrive at 7 and it was very small (6-7 tables) they serve each course at the same time to everyone! The food was amazing! I love Japanese as is and I'm very into raw fish and seafood...

Most dishes are expertly prepared and elegantly presented with an excellent wagyu beef that melts into a sweet cream in your mouth. The only dish that did not stand out is a cooked fish from the Tsujiki market. The wine list is small but the selection (mostly French) is very good and appropriate for the food. Service is very efficient... More

This is my husband and my 3rd dining experience at Keiko's and the one restaurant we always have to go to on our last night in San Francisco every year. It is not just dinner, it is a totally unforgettable dining experience from beginning to end. Keiko's talent is incredible and every dish is a true piece of art in... More

Though advertised as "Japanese/French fusion", we found our evening's tasting menu to be mostly Japanese-described fish and beef dishes. First thing to know is there is only one seating per evening, and a set prix fixe menu. However, we were contacted several days in advance asking if anyone in our party had allergies to particular foods. Every item was excellent,... More

For something different from the massive servings normal in the USA this intimate restaurant serves French influenced Japanese haute cuisine. The staff are helpful, attentive and always on hand. The menu is predetermined and served with precision. The selection - 12 courses - was extensive with fish the main subject, but the treatment was unusual and sauces were imaginative and... More

Walked in and was just wowed--it was so intimate that I expected all the men to drop on a knee and propose to their dinner dates. Amazing food as well. Great wine list. Proprietors were super-friendly.

My husband made this reservation to celebrate our 15th anniversary. We had very little knowledge of what to expect before arriving but we were not disappointed. The restaurant is located in a small residential building. Upon arrival, we are taken to our beautiful intimate table with comfortable cozy chairs. It is a set menu with the entire room being served... More

It is a long night at Keiko but the food and the whole experience makes it worthwhile. It is a approx. 10 course degustation type menu, all small courses but still quite a lot of food. Each course was beautifully executed and some were just outstanding - particularly the sea urchin and the snow crab courses. One of the signature... More

We were lucky to get Saturday night reservations only a couple of weeks in advance for this tiny restaurant (approx.12 tables) on the 1st floor of a classic Nob Hill apartment building. We had visited many years before and remembered their unique Asian tasting menu. Considering there were 12 innovative and delicious small courses with a staff that could fit... More

This is the finest meal of the year for me. Absolutely divine in every aspect. Small cozy room and everyone gets served at the same time. Superb wine pairing even though they have a great wine list. It was like traveling to Paris and finding a hidden gem-without the long flight! Service is flawless and cordial.The flavors soared above other... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
