On a trip to San Fran that had involved meeting a special lady I had not seen for 6 years (with no previous romantic involvment) the pressure was on to make our last night together a treat. On the basis of the then Trip Advisor top rating I duly booked this place by email before travelling. All true! Busy place, and even when booked you have to wait at the bar no real problem for those of Irish descent) but the intimate seating for 2 set the tone for a really fantastic last night and dining experience. The busy ambience does not get in the way of discretely lit conversation and our host was very attentive in explaining all the dishes on the menu without overselling them. He even produced a selection of specs as I had forgotten mine. Both of us had a fantastic meal, one being a goat dish and the other based around fish. Wine was excellent (which is why I cannot provide the names of the dishes!). This is a place you could propose in if minded to do so, its that good, and the atmosphere and lighting make it suitably romantic. having travelled from the UK; what some would call pricey seemed more than fair to me for this place. No negatives whatsoever. It is worth booking before travel but i rate it 10/10. And having taken my beau there t thank her for meeting me and to say farewell, she must have loved it too because depsite all the horrible logistics we are meeting in Californai again v soon, so thanks K.E.!!!
