We had a lovely dinner at Amber with our kids. The menu had some familiar dishes, but there was also some creativity. The Saag paneer was inspired, very fresh, with a touch of heat. My husband and I shared a grilled lamb dish that was just delicious. Service was friendly, prompt and attentive. The meal felt relaxed while also proceeding... More

The price to food and service value is a pleasant surprise for being in the middle of downtown San Francisco. Very trendy atmosphere. Nice bar area if you wanted to pop in for drinks. Reservations needed on the weekend. The restaurant seats maybe 100. The big glass windows allow you to people watch.... We came here with out of town... More

The tandoori chicken was the best we've ever had, we loved everything. Our waiter was wonderful. We had dinner on a Monday, the restaurant was completely packed, even with a reservation we were seated 15 min late - so do reserve ahead. The bar was packed with people eating dinner, which seemed to stretch the bar staff - they could... More

Okay, so it's a bit pricey, and the portions are on the small side, but the food is absolutely terrific, and the service matches it. The menu is a bit different from most Indian restaurants, but exciting and innovative. We started with Samosas and I ordered their version of Chicken Tikka, and the server told me that it wasn't in... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
