Great Food!

We stumbled across this restaurant, as our usual Italian was full and had a 45 minute wait. Good job too. It is quite compact inside, but there was a table. We were seated efficiently and handed the menus. We opted for a couple of sharing starters, then two main courses. The portions were ample... read more

A friend sent us here. We ordered tons of food thinking we'd take some home and just cleaned it up. Very attentive and friendly service. All veggies were very young and fresh. Lemongrass chicken was a cool kind of spicy. Really good food.

I always enjoy my meal when I order at Dragon Well. Although most Chinese food is greasy this place isn't. Delicious, and in my mind pretty healthy options! Love the Lemon Grass Stir Fry and the Lettuce Cups! Would highly recommend!

The food was excellent! 2 of us split the Mongolian beef and the tofu curry noodle stir fry. Granted, we were really hungry at the end of a long day of traveling, but I do think this is some of the best Chinese food I've eaten. A big plus for us was that when we asked about gluten free options,... More

Food is excellent and incredibly fast service, but I've been here maybe ten times over the years and EVERY TIME I have been cheated on the change. Maybe scamming older folks, who knows, but it happens every time so it can't be a coincidence, and every time the waiter is different and they ALL give you the wrong change. Maybe... More

Dragon Well was a fun lunch spot in a great part of San Francisco. The food was fabulous and they were good about catering to food allergies to make sure the food was safe. Be sure to try the lettuce cups and Stir Fried Curry Mi Fun with chicken. You won't be disappointed! On a nice day, they open the... More

My husband and I always enjoy eating here after work or picking up takeout on our way back from a country weekend. Favorite dishes are the chicken lettuce cups, scallop and yellow chive yi mein, ma po tofu, salmon in black bean sauce.

Service was very attentive and responsive. The food was good and moderately priced. It was a short walk from our B&B, Union Street Inn. Many locals were picking up take out, so that is always a good sign and more were entering to be served. Enjoyable meal.

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
