We had a hectic trip into SF from Santa Cruz, and I'd neglected to make restaurant reservations even though I knew where I wanted to go--so convenient, right across from the Orpheum where we were seeing "Hamilton"--dinner was almost an afterthought... We picked up our theatre tickets and arrived out of breath at the Market Street Grill, where we were... More

We popped in without reservations for lunch before the Matinee at the Orpheum. The restaurant reminds you of old Europe. It is beautiful. This is really the only decent restaurant within walking distance on a Sunday. We were seated immediately, but told there was no bartender working. Service was attentive. The restroom is awkwardly placed across the hotel entrance and... More

My partner and I ate at the Market Street Grill for dinner a couple of times during our stay at the Hotel Whitcomb. We I enjoyed the pastas very much. The mushroom ravioli were succulent and flavorful, the spaghetti alla Siciliana was hearty and filling. On the whole a good dining experience.

We stopped in for a quick lunch before catching a show at the Orpheum. Our service was quick, the meal was fresh and delicious and the setting was beautiful.

We dined here while staying at the hotel and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of our meal. We arrived at 8, after all the theatre people had moved on, and the place was relaxed and quiet. Our server was friendly and his recommendations were excellent.

Enjoyed dinner at the market grille while we stayed at the hotel whitcomb. Their beet salad is delicious. My husband had the spicy Italian spaghetti which I could not remember the exact name. He loved it. The ambiance is very nice

Went here after a day exploring in the city. Didn't know there was a show across the street so I got there during the pre-show rush. Took the bartender, Steve, a minute or two to come over, but he was the only one working the bar and was completely swamped. He is extremely personable and pretty much made the night;... More

We dined here while staying at the hotel and had a good meal served by a very pleasant staff. It would have been good to see a few more offerings on the menu, but our dishes were well prepared and seasoned.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
