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

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

Party of 5, all hungry after 2 to 4 hours of mountain biking from Sausalito to hills of Mill Valley headed for dinner with table reserved previous night. This steak lounge finds its origins from traditional american steak house with clear asian fusion twist. The appetizers took their insipirations from japanese kitchen, like lobster in tempura style. The main courses... More

We came with a large group and set up was perfect. The bar with a piano player was a great touch while waiting on all guests to arrive. The restaurant has an upper level ( very few steps) which gave it a private feel for our group of 40. Service was perfect, food very good. Ambience is attractive with dim... More

This place is really cool! Definitely a lounge-y feel to it, with dim mood lighting and music. It was a bit loud in the restaurant, but it was also 8pm on a Saturday night so that's to be expected. I ordered my steak medium rare and definitely received a medium well dish, but otherwise the appetizers and other courses were... 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.
