This restaurant was recommended to us by Jay (Victorian homes walk) and we were very satisfied. It was warm enough that we could eat outside. We had beet salad, ham focaccia and strawberry shortcake. Very good food and pleasant waitress. Afterwards we walked up and down Union Street which has many interesting shops.

We stopped here for lunch while walking around the quaint little shops on Union Street. A great little find! Quite a varied menu, very friendly staff and the food was good. They have an pizza oven, and make the bases fresh, so we had pepperoni pizzas. Very nice!

Charming little restaurant with a wonderful secluded patio. They serve fabulous French toast prepared in their own special way. The herbed eggs and ham were great. We can't wait to go back!

Walking distance from the Union Street Inn where we stayed, the food was superior and the service was wonderful. Lovely menu that included many of our favorites... anything with seafood is sure to please. Try the Caesar Salad with crab... yummy!! The wines by the glass are fabulous too.

A girlfriend and I celebrated our birthdays at Rose's. We started with wine, and I was impressed that they poured me a sample before I ordered, to make certain I enjoyed my selection. We shared very tasty food - the Buratta with Grilled Asparagus appetizer, the Chopped Salad with a very delicious Gorgonzola Vinaigrette, a Pear and Carmelized Onion Pizza... More

It's tight, the menu is limited, but it is tasty, reasonably priced and with a warm atmosphere helped by the gracious staff. Italian dishes and pizza are not your average ... real effort is made and it shows. Moderate prices.

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.
