We had a lovely dinner which started out with Lobster Bisque. I never can have a bisque in a regular restaurant because it always is made with cream. This bisque was dairy free and delicious, with just the right amount of heat and flavor. The...More

My visit to Roy's in SF was very disappointing, food and service was less than mediocre. The Restuarant does not meet up to the standards of all the other Roy's both in Hawaii and California, management should be embarrassed. We have never had a bad...More

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
