“Quiet, neat neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

Neat gardens, and a nice little park near Lombard St. The hills are steep, luckily they don't get snow here! Good to walk around in this area a little on your way to/from Lombard St. Nice view of the Golden Gate Bridge from the northwest side of the park.

“Nice neighborhood with a great little market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We enjoyed walking this neighborhood, and the New Russian Hill Market is a wonderful little
market with a wide range of food and supplies. We got some wonderful coffee there that they ground to order for us. The employees were super nice!

“Crook on Lombard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We used the tram to go to the Russian Hill. Tourist go there not only to take a glimpse of the Russian neighborhood but one the most crooked street in the US. You can walk down the side (stairs) or drive down in your own vehicle (one-way). If lucky see how people living there park their cars. Visit during daylight hours. You can board a bus couple of block down to go to COIT tower ($7 entry fee) and get an excellent view of this street and 360 degree birds eye view of SF.
