Terzo serves good food -- consistent with its pricepoint and competitors in San Francisco. The room is nice, though gets loud. One server who often works there seems like he'd be much, much happier somewhere else. I hope he gets the opportunity.

Our Saturday night dinner with friends who live in the neighborhood was fabulous. Waiter very friendly including helping us select entrees and participating in our conversation in an amusing sort of way (our friends are regulars at this spot, so everybody knew everybody). Since there were four of us, we had one of practically everything, including the braised pork meatballs,... More

SF locals chose this restaurant for our one 'big' night out and we loved it. They describe themselves as Mediterranean, but I would also suggest that they are West Coast/local fare with a tapas-style delivery. We ordered a number of small and large plates and shared. We ordered two of the tomato braised pork meatballs, but there were plenty of... More

The service is excellent. The menu changes depending in what the Chef can get fresh....the selections of items are always great. My favorites are their seasonal soups, Tomato Braised Pork Meatballs, *Fried Egg Bruschetta,Roasted Crispy Chicken Breast and their deserts. The food it excellent at a fair price. Marinda is the manager, Mark the Chef and the service staff are... More

Just last night, I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant with family from France and old friends. Our server, Ron, was awesome, with great recommendations and suggestions and when it came to trying to figure out what wine to order given that some in my group had pretty particular tastes, he was also amazing, choosing just the right...

Terzo is one of our favorite restaurants in San Francisco, and perhaps our biggest go-to recommendation for people visiting the city. The restaurant is probably best described as Mediterranean, but they utilize local ingredients (as great SF restaurants tend to do). For its quality, Terzo is very affordable. We recommend ordering several small plates and one entree (or just all... More

My friend who lives in the city wanted to eat here so they made reservations. Everything was delicious. The server was knowledgeable and helpful. We started with the humus and asparagus (split between 4 as appetizers). 3 of us got the Mahi Mahi and one got the steak. The Mahi was so flavorful and delicious, it was better than the... More

We were recommended to come to this restaurant by a local photographer and it turned out to be a real gem. Really busy on a Thursday night - we we were lucky to get a table straight away - which shows you how popular it is! Great atmosphere and all of the sharing plates were great, but a special mention... More

Went here for a double date and was very impressed--the small plates were all great and the ambiance of the restaurant was very nice. Definitely recommend it!

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.
