Great salad

I stopped here for lunch and ordered the Chinese chicken salad. It was amazingly good. The ingredients were fresh. You order your food and it is brought to your table. The staff are friendly. The atmosphere is energetic.

We stumbled on this place while staying at the W. So happy we did. The food choices for breakfast were varied with great options. The service was quick and even though you order at the counter, staff members checked in while we were seated. I had the Avocado Toast with Poached Egg. Yummm... My husband enjoyed the BLT and said... More

We loved the Grove! From the twinkle lights on the trees inside to the amazing food to the exceptionally accomodating staff. We ate dinner here with our two boys, ages 5 & 8, and everyone found something they enjoyed. Nice beer selection as well. Highly recommend.

This place serves a wide variety of delicious breakfasts. We tried the burrito, the granola, the fruit platter, the eggs benedict and the avocado toast. They were all delicious ! You definitely must go there !

I sure lucked out when I found this restaurant one block from my hotel. I had breakfast there twice, the Eggs and Avocado toast one day and the Grove Eggs Benedict another day, both were delicious. I also got dinner one night, the Slow Cooked Chicken with Lemon and Olives, which was yummy as well. It's a bit expensive for... More

The line outside may seem long, but it moves quickly and the wait is worth it. Great salads, both great tasting and great big. A pastrami sandwich was not what it could be. Portions are good sized. You can get a multitude of beverages, including beer on tap and wine. Seating is open, so as soon as you place your... More

We visited on a Thurs at lunch so that may have contributed to the crowd. Maybe business folk. However that being said, we ordered and found a table in a timely manner. The French onion soup was very good. A meal in itself. The only recommendation I could give was I felt 4.25 for each drink was overpriced. My family... 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.
