Was recommended to try Stax’s. It is a classy dining and bar area and has a lovely position on the Embarcadero with great views of the bay and the Rock. Great selection of wines to taste and lovely food. Well worth a visit.

We tasted three wines including a $16 glass of zinfandel that was recommended as being the best....NOT!! We can get a better bottle for $4 of Trader Joe Zin. So please...don't serve average quality wines to tourists. I don't know how they stay in business...More
