Great location in the Marina district and nice backyard patio area. Unfortunately, our server was beyond sub par, which really just ruined the experience for me. Reading other reviews, allegedly the truffle popcorn was legendary, but we didn't like it that much. Food was decent and prices were good.

We've stumbled upon this little bar when walking though the city. We only had some drinks. Nice athmosphere, good wines.

We wandered in without a reservation and were fortunate to have found this gem. The food was terrific, wine selection excellent, and service very good. The atmosphere was comfortable and inviting. We would return again.

We went here again Sunday. We each had a three-course meal, consisting of baked goat cheese and strawberries (delicious), a salad, cheeseburger, mushroom risotto and two chocolate pot de cremes. We also had glasses of a 2011 Stoller Pinot from Oregon and a 2010 Pride merlot. They have about twenty wines by the glass, as well as at least that... More

So my first impression of this place was brutally terrible. If it wasn't Easter Sunday I would have ABSOLUTELY walked out. Maybe I even should have and gone home. The blond hostess was so unbelievably rude that it blew my mind. We made a reservation and expected to be treated like everybody else but when we arrived we were put... More

The coziet place we went on vacation for dinner. While the majority of dishes seemed to be geared towards the vegetarian palate, we enjoyed every bite! Us 4 girls shared everything, and the ricotta gundi and butter nut squash risotto were amazing. As well as the roasted eggplant and the beet salad. Impeccable service. A bit pricey but worth it!

I went here with some friends: we divided 2 starters, I took a hamburger, a beer and I shared a dessert with a friend...and we paid more than 40$ each. The quality was ok, but couldn't justify that price; and there wasn't a great choice of dishes. Moreover the waiter made a mistake with our order. I can't recommend this... More

Not a horrible experience but not overly memorable. Castelvetrano Olives were nice and the accompanying wine was decent though not a great value. Service was solid and they accomodated us quickly.

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.
