While in SF for a few weeks we visited Nectar twice and would have liked to visit again. First visit we sat at a front bar table and enjoyed 2 flights of reds and 1 flight of whites. Each flight was well put together and had nice wines. The labels here are not the common wines, but rather some... read more

Chris and Leah are amazing...personable...very knowledgeable. NEVER had a bad suggestion for wine pairings. Food was very very tasty.....smaller plates....huge flavor. Burratta cheese plate is spectacular...the Butternut Pizzetta is amazing as well. I go here every six weeks when I visit San Francisco....very comfortable....and they love to talk to you abotu their selections. Very nice people...great hang

Hands down, the most fun wine list in the city! The wine selections are geographically diverse yet veer a bit more toward old world varietals. Wine selections are catagorized according to whether you're a sensualist or a hedonist, etc. The space is cool and chic, with great chill-out music and netflix movies silently projected onto the wall. Their small plate... More

I was here on a Wednesday night and while there were very few people in the lounge, I was there with a small group and we had a great time. They have a fantastic selection of wines and the service staff is great at providing tastings to see if you like the wine or not and honestly, their knowledge was... More

Stopped in for a drink. The place was pretty crowded, but we found some seats. We tried a few flights and they were Ok. Hoping the wine is better in Sonoma (our destination), but enjoyed San Fran for a night. Beautiful city with lots of places like this to hang out.

We went here last Friday before a concert, never having been here before. We had small plates and wine by the glass. The menu is limited. The cheese plate was good. The wine was okay, certainly not of the level of Bin 38, which has fantastic wines by the glass, as well as a more extensive menu. Happy hour from... More

The staff and selection at Nectar are just to die for. The wine flights are the best of any wine bar we have visited on our trip. The owner/sommelier created custom flights for us once we had tried the ones on the menu. We took the Mac and cheese with truffle oil back to the hotel with us and it... More

Love the wine flights, staff is great, and from the truffle oil popcorn to the bacon wrapped dates - all small plates are great - and fun to share and try. The menu suggests wine parings for each plate, and it's a fun, and relaxed atmosphere.

Last night, my husband and I, along with two good friends, stopped by for a glass of wine and some appetizers. We were greeted by a very friendly waiter, a great selection of wines, a cozy, inviting atmosphere and nice choice of small plates from which to choose. Although not cheap, we had a delightful evening in a great location... More

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.
