$700 for 4 people should leave you with "WOW" used in referring to more than just the bill. Nice but somewhat sterile atmosphere with average food seems to be the vibe here. Fancy sounding yet bland appetizers. The steak was cooked to the wrong temperature and possibly the chewiest cut of New York strip ever. You won't be impressing your... More

Kidding of course. I like eating good quality meat and this place served the very best. I ordered one of the top pieces of US meat and just to make sure, a very nice piece of Kobe beef. The US steak was brilliant and well cooked. Just perfectly crisp and moist and tasty. The Kobe was off the scale. I... More

I eat a steak once a year so it has to be good when I do -- and this was. Great experience -- not cheap by my Midwest standards... But well worth it. Lots of little samples which were generally amazing (the duck fat custard not so much -- but three different breads in small portions, and the side of... More

This is one of those very good independent US steakhouses. A little out of the way but when you get there you are in for a very good experience. Couldn't fault it from start to finish.

Went here for a business meal with 5 other colleagues the other night. A great 'formal' yet informal restaurant. Fabulous range of steaks on the menu and the service was impeccable. Waiters certainly knew their steaks and explained each in detail when we asked about a specific type. Good choice of wines, and our waiter recommended a particular one to... More

Visited this restaurant whilst on holiday in San Francisco. The menu offers a wide range of steaks, including some 9-11 types of wagyu beef. On the night, a special 4 ounce Tomahawk wagyu steak was available, and gave this a go - simply amazing! All other food (including starters) were of a very high standard, however, I must admit, the... More

I had dinner with a business associate and two clients. I arrived early. The bar staff was very attentive and recommended excellent choices for drinks. If you need a freshen up on which Scotch or Bourbon is top knotch and suited for your taste, then ask these guys what would be good. The food was exceptional ! We had most... More

Excellent dinner. 5 men, on business, tired of the typical steakhouse. We found it here. Every dish was different from what we expected. Different in a good way. From hamachi shooters to Kumamoto oysters with beet ginger gelee, this was the best. 11 grades of Kobe beef, plus several excellent steaks from the U S heartland. Fish, prime rib. Artfully... More

Special treat with the wife who likes fillet and wasn't disappointed. The reception was great. Chris our server could not do more. Excellent shared salad starter. 6oz Kobi Fillet for the wife. Cooked perfectly and she loved it. I had the 22 oz bone in strip. Excellent. Side of green beans really good and fries ok but a wider choice... More

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.
