Loud bar, good food

I had the pork loin with the corn and squash pancake and it was fantastic! My husband had the rib eye and it was good. Our son had the hanger steak and it was cooked and presented well, but the portion was a bit on the small side. The service was sub par and we didn't connect with our server... read more

We ate there primarily for convenience. Breakfast was standard. Had chicken panini for lunch and it was extremely dry. Luckily there were lots of other places to eat along the water.

WOW what a view. Right on the bay and street access. Had a few drinks at night with work friends and then an amazing breakfast. The fruit was fresh and eggs tasted as if they were right from the farm. Really loved my breakfast (the most important meal of the day)

Had lunch at Americano with a business associate. The food is decent and the lunch special (half sandwich + soup, or soup + salad, plus a piece of fruit and 2 cookies) is a good deal. My issues aren't with the food but two other things that may not be an issue for other diners. First, I asked my waiter... More

My wife and I stopped here for a few beers at their hotel bar, as this was the only place in the area to get a drink. Americano Restaurant and Bar is conveniently located near the Embarcadero BART station, it is very classy, and is a modern facility. The bar was a bit boring and the drinks here are ridiculously...

The view here is great and not just of The Bay but also the people! It was lively inside and on the huge patio. People watching and great food, I will be back here! The pizza is a must!

The bartender john was wonderful so we sat at the bar to eat. The appetizers were better than the meal itself. The salad and pasta dishes were a bit tasteless, but the fried chickpeas and artichokes were great.

I only met friends at the hotel restaurant, so I don't have a review of the hotel rooms. But I must say my experience with the restaurant and valet was a bit lackluster. I'm mostly disappointed by the high cost of drinks and the even higher cost of valet. The restaurant bar is very nice and the hotel lobby is... More

I dropped by to meet a friend for a drink and was amazed by how awesome the pizza is! The staff is really great and knew how to make all my favorite drinks. There was a good crowd on Thursday night and with a great view of the Embarcadero. I’m defiantly going back to this place.

Sometimes you want a decent breakfast. This place offers it and although you'll spend $20 it will fill you up and taste great as well.

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.
