Visiting friends in the neighborhood, we went to this most unique little restaurant. The flavors they create are astounding - always using the freshest in season ingredients. We shared starters which included the spinach cakes with yogurt and cucumbers, the fish soft tacos and the polenta with mushrooms. Each was unique and delicious. We could have stopped but forged ahead... More

The wait staff are very ready to guide you through Pomelo's intriguingly different menu. There are lots of wonderful choices for those who prefer not to eat meat. I had the ayacucho - grilled fish of the day with quinoa cakes, a delicious roasted sweet pepper coulis, avocado and yam crisps. Fabulous!! A good choice of wines was available, albeit... More

Had a catch up dinner with a friend at the Church St location in Noe Valley directly in front of the J train. The place is intimate but roomy enough to accommodate two parties of six when we were there and a few outdoor tables. There were a few couples on dates too. As promised, the menu represented its interpretation... More

Great neighborhood place, but parking may be tough. Unusual menus but the food is great. A fusion of Asian, vegetarian and Cuban choices. Well worth the trip to Noe Valley. Take the "J"

Best meal where noodles and grains meet. Very much enjoyed their fish with noodle dish. It was fun to go where the locals go. Small, casual restaurant in the Noe Valley area. Great prices also for wonderful entrees!

The owners are Swiss and Malaysian, and you can see their influence in the menu. Its not fancy, but has some of the best food and best value in the city (2013 Zagat gives 24... More

This is one of my favorite places in SF. They have a great menu that changes seasonally, affordable wine list, and great staff. It is also 4 blocks from my house. Many of the menu items can also be done for vegetarians if they have meat. One of my fav dishes is the Otsu - buckwheat Japanese noodles, tossed with... More

Food: We came here for Sunday brunch and it was just OK. I had been here previously for dinner which was better but this review is for brunch only. 1) Noe Valley Scramble - 3 organic eggs, green tomatoes, bacon, and jack cheese served with wheat toast and roasted potatoes. The eggs were very moist and good but I wasn't... More

Fun, healthy and delicious. A neighborhood gem if you're in the Noe area. Love the mix of Asian Fusion and European specialties.
