Great streaks and service

5 of us dined here Tuesday March 31. The steaks were simply amazing. I got the bone in ny, with a delicious sauce and poached egg. It was amazing. The staff was very attentive. Would have given 5 stars but they severely over cooked one of our parties steaks, they promptly brought another but... read more

The appetizers were great. The foie gras was amazing. When it came to the meat... Not so much. We didn't order the Wagyu- so I can't comment on that. For the steaks on the menu- very very very disappointed. No flavour on the steaks. Really .

Wanted a steak for dinner so selected this restaurant. Bar staff very pleasant for our Happy Hour beverage which goes until 7:00 PM. The dining area is in a circular room with lights on ceiling that make you feel like you're in a space ship. Service was very good however the waiter brings out his platter showcase of Waygu beef...

We went here recently and it was great, the host and server were both very welcoming and accommodating. The atmosphere was comfortable and pleasant. The food was great. They let you mix and match the toppings of the steaks to different cuts of meat. The food was cooked perfectly and all tasted great. The standout was the truffle mac and... More

Everything we had was excellent with a flavorful twist. The Asian fusion made for great choices in appetizers, salads and the steak preparations. Not that pricey for San Francisco. I will be back

We were treated to a lovely meal at 5A5! We started with the lobster tempura which was really delicious. Steak tartar was a delight. Ahi tuna appetizer, yummy. Steaks were good and cooked to perfection. Service was fantastic! A plus for the atmosphere, we had a great open style booth!

Came here as we're both steak lovers, and we had a great meal and a good time. The setting is very nice, and the lighting is bright enough to read the menu and soft enough to be pleasant. Our server asked if we were first timers, and we said 'yes'. Shortly thereafter he came to our table with a wooden... More

The service from the ease of handling a last minute reservation as well as accommodating a special table request turned me on immediately. George, the Maitre'D, is the professional responsible for the superior front desk service. As for food, it is all superb. The steak selections, side dishes, appetizers are all of the highest quality, well prepared, presented well and... More

This place was really good, the lobster tempura is a must! My husband and I both ordered steak, it came with some out of the ordinary garnishes, but I think that is what they are known for and it was good. It was a little pricey, but the food was good, and as I said, be sure to get the... More

We are on hols in SF and used TA to find us a steakhouse we could walk to from the hotel. Booking was easy on line and we left a note letting them know we couldn't eat dairy or wheat. When we turned up, everyone knew about the note and let us know dishes would be adapted without any issue... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
