Close to lots of hotels south of airport

Lots of hotels around and this sits just South of SFO. Right out the back door is the runway of SFO, one can watch takeoff and landings all night long. I liked the menu, very unique. It had burgers, jambalaya, Asian chicken, beef, fish, salads, etc...something for everyone. Prices are very... read more

Loud, but good. Great spinach dip and homemade Parmesan chips. Need WAY more servers in the bar area. They always seem overwhelmed and rushed, but polite. Great views to bay and planes landing. Good drink choices, a bit pricey overall.

We chose this restaurant due to its convenient location relative to the hotel where we were staying, but it really was good choice. It cant be easy for a restaurant to produce a wide range of different ethnic foods of equally high quality. We dined there twice and all dishes were of a very good standard. This a popular place....

I stayed overnight in San Francisco and the food choices where I was located was sparse. The check in concierge at the hotel suggested that I try this place which was walking distance to the hotel. I ordered a Pub Burger and Sweet Potato Fries - the food was your 'usual' pub food, but it was really delicious and seasoned... More

Ate here twice. Although a 'family' restaurant there is also a bar. They offer a very wide range of food at very competitive prices together with a choice of beers. They have 'happy hours' early and late in the day making the value even better. Close to the main Burlingame hotels next to the airport it is an ideal choice... More

The appetizers are amazing. We can't wait to go back and try the entrees. Loved the circular bar. Excellent service. Our go to restaurant now in this area. The staff was friendly, efficient, and very helpful with menu choices.

We went out for an evening stroll along the bayshore and stopped in her for a drink. Great drink menu and it was happy hour - double score!

With a view of San Francisco Bay, aircraft arriving at SFO and a broad menu of food, it's a very good place for a meal if you're in the area. All of the staff was professional and friendly and the restaurant has a lot of business from neighboring hotels, so there is lots of noise and
