Nice spot

Went here for a casual dinner, we got the burger and the steak. Friendly waitress, food hit the spot. Wasn't too busy when we arrived at 7 PM, but was heaving when we left around 10 PM.

Guys... I really don't know how you guys could have given to this place 4 stars.. Probably you had too much alcohol before eating. Everything it's not cooked well: too seasoned, raw etc... Really not a place for someone who likes and know about food.

Ended up here because Le Charm was closed, after doing SF Gift show. It's a bar and restaurant in what looks like it used to be a warehouse. Didn't look particularly clean in the seating area. The food was interesting and a little "foodie." We had a really nice very simple salad of greens and radishes in a mustard dressing,... More

This is our first time to San Francisco and we are enjoying our trip! The bell man, Chris, at our hotel highly recommended eating here at Oola, and I'm glad we took his suggestion. The food here is very delicious and the atmosphere is awesome! The restaurant was walking distance from our hotel. We flew in from Hawaii and didn't... More

Open till 1am. The Ribs are a solid choice and so is the burger. If they have the truffle ravioli, get it!! Great lighting for couples.

Menu looked fun (octopus with popcorn!?) and the interior looked pleasing. Eight booked with relative ease. Starters arrived relatively quickly and the octopus was considered a good choice & the tacos were flavoursome. 75% of main courses arrived in reasonable time but 1 steak was pretty cold and the side of crack fries was AWOL. The mac & cheese was... More

Visited Oola for the first time on a Sunday for brunch. There is nothing wrong with this place - it has a nice vibe - just nothing spectacular, food-wise. Probably a good place for a drink and bar bites after a conference at Moscone. It was not overly busy even at noon on Sunday, which is an indicator of quality... More

Just meh. Don't bother. Plan ahead next time and get reservations at Zero Zero. It's packed for a reason.

Good hours, nice decor for a bar, but very tiny menu and tasteless mac and cheese. Don't think we'd go back. Service was so-so (brought wrong item).

I found this place accidentally. I was visiting the Moscone Center and went out for lunch. After finding it, I visited every day for lunch. I also tried for dinner and also for a late night stop. For lunch, it was quiet and I was guaranteed to get a seat. The food was good and reasonably priced. I tried several... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
