Well presented and quality food, service to match.

I came for a business lunch and the place has a good ambience not too noisy and tables are not to close together. They have tried to go for a french feel inside a modern building - which kind of works but not quite. However the menu is not extensive which is not a bad thing as it means they... read more

I have been to RN74 a number of times and it is always a treat and unforgettable. The food is amazing, the wine list equally amazing (and one of the most extensive I've ever seen) and the service is always very good, if a bit frantic at times. On balance, if you have not been there, GO! And don't try... More

Though food was good we were very disturbed by the wait staff constantly trying to take our food off the table. Their behavior made us uncomfortable and we would not return!

The wine list is extensive (especially if your wallet is bottomless!). We did find a delicious bottle under $100. The staff was attentive - always cleaning plates as soon as we were through and refilling our glasses throughout the dinner. The Butter roasted Mary's Chicken was very moist and quite tasty. The sauce they poured on it was delicious! The... More

We had a very nice meal here during a visit to San Francisco, but I felt it was more expensive than it should have been. The wine list had several very nice bottles on the list however almost none of them were less than $100. The food was very good as was the service. The ambulance was also very enjoyable.

I dined at RN74 on a business trip and enjoyed it. It’s one of Chef Michael Mina’s restaurants. I guess because it is part of a large corporate restaurant structure, it lacks a little bit of that “owner-on-site” warmth and feeling. The food is quite good. I enjoyed their asparagus soup and pork tenderloin entree. Service was pretty good, though... More

Let me start by saying the service here was very good. We ordered some appetizers. The fried cauliflower was insanely good. The fois gras was ok. It wasn't bad but different from others that I have had in the past. I had the pork, but it was really bland. I wish I would have tried something else because maybe I... More

We had the most knowledgeable waiter this side of the Atlantic on a recent visit, who recommended a risotto and then told us the name of the rice kernels used. (No, Food Network fans, it wasn't Arborio.) The risotto was splendid, and in fact everything else was too. The tables are small and the atmosphere is more bistro than fine... More

We had some of the best appetizers and meals ever. I wanted vegetarian and I had beet Bourguignon. It was fabulous! Great wine selections and desserts!

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
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.
