Over the years, it seems this building has struggled to find its identity. But now it has a pretty good collection of walk-up casual fast food restaurants, plus a movie complex. The new Target store is a gigantic plus for the building and the area. The grassy areas outside are also nice in a downtown setting. During the last weekend... More

Went to see Mission Impossible Rogue Nation there and tried the ETX room. It's amazing. Great sound and a giant, crystal clear screen. Good entertainment option.

Metreon has improved over the past two years. First-floor eateries are nice. There's descent variety and it's a clean place to dine. AMC movie theater is an okay multi-cinema theater. It's nothing special. The view from the upper-floor windows is the best thing about Metreon. Looking out over Yerba Buena Gardens never gets old. And, the new Target was a... More

The building stands out, it was not too far from our hotel. it contains a cinema, some small shops and places to eat. We had a wander around but there are more interesting places to explore just outside.

This is a shopping center with a movie theater. It is not an attraction; with two exceptions - the view from the lobby of the move theater across from the snack bar and the clean bathrooms. From the lobby of the movie theater you have a view of the park and behind it beautiful buildings which surround it. Whenever I... More

Lacks charm and local shops. The movie theatre is fab and is the key selling point of the Metreon. Love being able to bring food in from the selection of restaurants in the metreon. The rest of the shopping could be in any city, anywhere in the world.

I've always thought it's a shame that whoever owns the Metreon couldn't find something more to do with it. It's a really awesome looking structure, adjacent to Yerba Buena Gardens and short walk to Museum of Modern Art (which is currently closed due to renovations.) My teen daughter and I were visiting from Marin for the day, and she had... More

Things happened and we didn't get our wine country tour, so nephew took us here instead. The Mereon was interesting. Lots of food choices and lots of people. View was great from Cityview. Was not crazy about Pinot Days. Huge crowds made tasting wine in such a compact space difficult. Can't imagine it was rewarding for vintners, either. Also, I... More

Metreon is close to the Convention Center area of San Francisco. It has a nice green area just outside the Metreon. As such, there are nice views of the area from the large window areas. There is a food court on the first floor and seating area (good place to go if you want something quick and attending the convention.)... More

If you are staying in downtown san francisco and want to do your own cooking to save this is the best place to shop. Within the metreon is now a well stocked target selling groceries. When it comes to supermarkets there is not much located in the area. Other then that for viewing first run movies there is a large... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
