OMG!!! The best cocktails ever!!! Victoria,John and others were super friendly. Victoria made us our drinks and they were to die for. I like my martinis and mochitoes and I am very picky when it comes to my favorites. This place does it for me. By far this is the best place to have a delicious cocktail. Pizza was ok... More

This local favorite place among locals has a great wood burning oven, great for pizzas. The other entrees are freshly made in front of you in this California style kitchen restaurant. Great food, wines and atmosphere in the South of Market area of the city, close to the waterfront.

We had a big party invade this restaurant for a celebration. We ordered almost every entree on the menu. All of it was delicious, but we especially enjoyed the salmon and rigatoni bolognese. The staff was very attentive and met all of our needs, I know for a big group this is difficult. They have an interesting drink menu and... More

In an out-of-the way location, there is a little bar with a most wonderful bartender named Sean. Never knowing what kind of cocktail I want when given the option of "Anything" ~ I often ask for the bartender's own concoction ~ and this one was so good that I had to write about it ~ The perfect blending of cucumber,...

I booked Local Kitchen & Wine Merchant via opentable.com because I needed a private party room to meet about 12 friends while I was back in SF for a visit. I wanted to really feel like I'm back in Cal, and had never heard of Local before so went with it on a whim. I am so glad I did!... More

Local is in a hard to access location but the food and wine are fantastic. The menu is simple but everything is done well. The "local salad" and pizzas are always good. There are plenty of wines by the glass and a wine store connected to the restaurant where you can buy a bottle to take home if you are... More

Ate here twice over the past week. Loved the quinoa stuffed artichokes. The pecan pie is to die for - not too sweet. Pizza was just OK, in my opinion.

Great from the moment we got there - tables for up to 8 people no problem but lucky we had reserved as it gets busy. Good service and great wine list in addition to amazing wood fired pizzas that my friends had - I had the scallops and loved it. Great coffee finished off a fab experience! Defo go back... More

The restaurant has a very chic and modern decor which is very pleasing. I was a little disappointed with the service it seems that they do not have enough people working. After taking 7 minutes the server came over to ask us if we wanted anything to drink. When my drink finally arrived it was flat so I sent it... More

this place is amazing. We met here while we waited for our entire party to arrive in San Fran before we checked into the hotel. The staff was amazing. We sat for about 5 hrs as our party grew from 1 table, to 2, later 3. The tasting bar has a small food menu to accompany their tastings but they... More
