Dont judge a book by its cover

When the cab pulled up in a side street outside of the restaurant I nearly didn't go in, it had an awful street presence. Inside was shabby chic to say the least and I still thought we'd made a mistake. When we looked at the menu and wine list things definitely looked up as it was simple and... read more

Everything I read did not disappoint. The atmosphere is relaxed and easy going, the food and service is outstanding. Was hesitant at first to take my partner for his birthday because it appears as a small neighborhood cafe but the food and service were beyond our expectations. For seafood fans, there is a selection of "catch of the days' and... More

We went here to celebrate our anniversary on a Tuesday night. The intimate space was not even half full which is sad because the food was top notch and the wine list had a lot of good selections. Service was casual and intermittent which may explain the small number of people eating there.

This being our third night in San Francisco and having had 2 mediocre, at best, restaurant experiences, the fine food at this establishment was very welcomed. This small unpretentious, bistro style restaurant had a very local feel and was situated down the street from Alamo square on a very quiet street. Ken, the waiter, bus boy, greeter was good at...

We ate here before an opera, and it is well-placed for the opera house, symphony hall etc. Perhaps eating so early in the evening meant that they hadn't got into the swing, but the food was a bit variable: nothing unpleasant or inedible, some dishes really nice, others very ordinary. It's probably best to order the specials; my wife had... More

Wednesday dinner brought own bottle of wine no corkage fee. The complimentary bread with garlic pesto dipping sauce was really good. Shrimp cerviche was delicious. Salad with oranges and apples was a nice light, and fresh tasting starter. The ahi special with asparagus and butternut squash terrific as was the salmon. The place is cozy with a warm atmosphere.

We had positive experiences 10 years ago or so as we ate there before the SF Symphony. Therefore, we were looking forward to our experience on a Monday evening as we were headed for the SF Airport. Unfortunately, our previous positive experience was not repeated. The salads were OK , but the fish dishes were not. My swordfish was a... More

We visit san francisco regularly and stumbled upon is little restaurant three years ago. We have been back three times and every time is great! Although the name might suggest otherwise, this is not a touristy place at all. The restaurant has a very local feel and ambiance. The food is amazing! Elegant french cuisine Try the sword fish in...

DH and I had dinner with my 2 nieces at this small restaurant on Fillmore St. I must say it was the perfect choice. Service was friendly and not rushed (which we really appreciated since we hadn't seen each other in a long time) and the food was well......just perfect! The grilled swordfish was delicious and DH had the salmon... More

Always looking for restaurants within walking distance to Davies Hall...we found this very little restaurant. Make reservation cause this is a very small place. Friendly staff, service prompt. Started with Calamari tho the sauce had a slight curry taste....you can opt on the preparation of your fish as well as sauce.....both the salmon & halibut were nicely done....finished with the...
