Great place in an excellent location. Food is regular, but once you see the whole place, you expect a lot more. Service is very slow, especially if you are sitting on the external tables. However, I do recommend this place and hope they can improve their menu and service. Will try again soon.

there are 2 must haves on the Betelnut menu. The first is the chili crusted calamari and the second is the glazed pork short ribs with garlic thai basil. We like the 2008 Navarro Gewurztraminer to compliment this spicy food.

We walked along Union Street from our hotel and stopped here for dinner. The food was wonderful and the service great. One of the best meals we have had here.

Excellent asian and sea food, imaginatively cooked and served. Trendy region and restaurant. Make reservation in advance as the place is quite full. A little noisy.

Nice place to eat on Union Street - an upscale, shopping area in San Francisco. The food is excellent - well prepared and served. The servers are friendly and helpful. It's a vibrant place with lots of people enjoying their meals and conversing. Didn't see a whole lot of kids around. The noise level is moderate. There is a bar.

This used to be a pretty special place for many years. The food was magical and delicious. The atmosphere eclectic. On a recent Saturday I met a business partner for early dinner. The menu has changed and now differs in nothing from a formulaic "Asian fusion " hack restaurants that are currently "in". Prices appear to have actually gone down,... 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.
