I went here once with work friends, as a big group, we had a reservation several months in advance. I'm not sure if you need to think that far ahead, but it's definitely worth it. We had a few cocktails, and everyone enjoyed the meal....More

We expected fine dining.What we got was average food with a bunch of kids in t shirts and shorts.Noisy and obnoxious.So glad we didn’t bring quests we would have been so embarrassed.

If you eat meat you should check it out- Its not for Vegetarians, Vegans, and the like. I love veggies and have a huge garden, all organic. BUT this is a great place for all of us who grew up in the 50's and 60's....More

This is hands down the best meal I have ever eaten. Reservations book up several weeks in advance. I tried to make reservations about 3 weeks in advance and the only thing available was a 10:00 pm reservation which we didn't book. We decided to...More

You definitely need a reservation if you want to eat at a decent time. The prime rib was amazing and I don't even like prime rib! The sour dough bread is also delicious! All the sides are great and highly recommend the horseradish sauce.

Best Martini I have had. Great US pour! Two martinis is enough for four people. Food is ok, HUGE portions so think about sharing a main meal. The salad prep show is good but the salad is kinda boring. Would I rush back, probably not....More

Vegans and vegetarians need not apply. Prime rib is their thing and they do it well. The house cut was plenty for me and was prepared perfectly. The sides, particularly the Yorkshire pudding, were very good, but the star was the prime rib. The prime...More

First let me say you won't be disappointed with the food, the beef is out of this world and the best we have had. But..... the whole meal felt incredibly rushed by the staff and when you're paying those kind of prices you expect your...More

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
