Great food...awful drinks..service was bad.

I was on business last week in Nob Hill and, being unfamiliar with the area, relied heavily on web reviews to find restaurants. That is how we ended up here. The reviews were positive. The place doesn't look like much, but the food is pretty good. It was a bit pricey for what is was, but not... read more

This was a great place to eat lunch! The food was spectacular and great tasting! The corn-beef hash was amazing. The pieces of corn-beef were think and large. The egg that came with was perfectly cook to my liking. The sauce they used was superb and mixed nicely with the corn-beef. Great place and also a bit of a wait.

Me and my wife had dinner at this place because we liked the menu that seemed to offer a good choice of dishes and in addition it was also located near our hotel. We arrived around 21, the place was not crowded at all, so we sit on a table in front of the counter and begin to read the... More

We waited just a few minutes to get a table for 5. We ended up getting burgers and fries all around. The truffle fries are the best I have ever had. Service was okay, not the best. There was a slight confusion with the waiter - he didn't bring menus for about 10 minutes. We would go back for a... More

I have heard that this place was famous and I was in SF and went for breakfast one morning. Just not overly impressed with the food. Pleasant staff but could't help but notice really not much more than a typical diner. I'll try it again next time in town.

I was staying near the Nob Hill Grille and given the good reviews on trip advisor thought I would give it a try. I sat at the bar and had a good view of the chefs preparing the food. From this it was obvious that the food here is standard fare. This was demonstrated in my mushroom risotto, which was... More

Our hotel was a 5 minute walk from the Nob Hill Cafe. We had arrived off an 11 hour flight and wanted somewhere close to the hotel for a light meal. The cafe was full when we got there but we had a glass of wine, sat outside and waited for a table. Were we glad we did this! The... More

We were here over the New Year's holiday. Our table was in the back room, which had a dank musty odor. Our server seemed to forget about us and was not very familiar with the menu. Our food was "just OK". We seem to have had an unfortunate experience, judging from the recommendations on this site.

Travelling alone on business often means slightly depressing meals for one in hotel bars. Fortunately I was lucky to find the Nob Hill Grille, which was wonderful. After being greeted on arrival I took a seat at the counter for what proved to be a really great night. The main server was wonderful, chatty but not pushy and she really... More

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
