Great spot, you can eat inside at the bar or on the closed in patio that has heat lamps (a must in SF!). Happy hour oysters were outstanding and the $1 can't be beat. Big selection of draft beers and wine plus a full bar....More

All of the staff are wonderful. I ordered one plate and then it wasn’t what I expected. The owner came by asked how it was and even thought I said it was good he insisted he bring me another plate. Which was amazing. I recommend...More

I had the Hawaiian Butter Fish. Before this, I had never tried Hawaiian food. After this dining experience, I'm not sure that I would go out of my way to have Hawaiian cuisine. This is not to say that I had a bad experience at...More

Went for drink with some clients. Waiter was great, food tasted good -- I have Hawaiian Butter Fish on risotto....was dang tasty. Others at the table enjoyed their food as well. I'd go back; great side street location with inside or outside seating.

A good alfresco resturant. Very helpful and pleasant staff. The food was excellent and well presented. A place where locals eat so it must be good.

Typical Brits, we plumped for Fish & Chips! 3 large pieces of fish accompanied by a large bowl of FRIES, not chips as we Brits know. Lovely batter on the fish

A once classic bistro, gone astray. The ambiance initially was lovely, until a woman with a dog was seated immediately next to us (in a fairly empty terrace, as we sat outside). We had the mussels, which were tender, but smothered, and I mean killed,...More

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,
