Everything on the menu is good

They have a great menu with a wide variety of pizzas, salads, steaks, and pasta. They also have a huge drink menu with many wines, beers, and signature cocktails. The shrimp scampi was delicious; but everyone said their food was good- from the steaks to the salads.

Good food, relaxing atmosphere. Great view of Bay Bridge. There really was nothing we disliked. Would definitely go there again.

A few colleagues and I met a prospective client at Palomino in San Francisco in Aug-2015. We made a reservation through OpenTable and arrived almost 30 minutes prior to our reservation. No worries, our table was ready and we were seated immediately. I ordered a Palomino Old Fashioned, and the waiter was very honest with me and suggested the regular... More

Everyone was happy. Portion sizes were really good as well. The wait staff was prompt, courteous. They had lots of information about the various dishes, the good... More

bought a groupon for this restaurant before we left for San francisco. I'm sure glad we did. The atmosphere was great, the waitress was helpful and caring, the happy hour drinks were delicious and the food was good. They start you off with home made bread and dipping sauce which was fantastic. I had ordered an appy before I realised... More

We went out for a getaway after a stressful few weeks at work. We started early to enjoy happy hour. We were chatting away and noticed the bar was packed with Warriors fans. We had wonderful drinks and ordered some apps. Then we were seated for dinner. Our view of the Bay Bridge was spectacular. The day was gorgeous. We... 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.
