My friend had to book about 6 weeks in advance to get a table and yet it was packed when we were there. Dining room was very classy. The steak was cooked just right, Yorkshire pudding, baked potato and sauté spinach were all good except...More

Terrific prime rib perfectly cooked. Good service. Reasonable cost for the area. We'll go back next time we're in the city.

The food is excellent and the atmosphere is very lush and sophisticated. Somehow the waiter seemed to have added and additional $20 to our bill (on top of what we tipped!) and that has not yet been resolved.

A rare Thanksgiving celebrated in a restaurant; usually I host a large group at home. Though apprehensive about dining out on a holiday, and, in a restaurant known for beef (which I don't eat), we all were pleasantly surprised. We arrived to find a huge...More

Best thing first: the beef is excellent. Ask for the red horseradish! It's special serve. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. The place was very loud though and table seating took more then 30 min after reserved time. It has been a very nice...More

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
