My husband and I had eaten at the sister restaurant, Boulevard, but not here. We came with certain expectations and except for one of our appetisers, they were met. Let me digress, the raw fish appetiser was fabulous. The pasta with squid ink and Spanish octopus was not great. The octopus was tough. Our mains of salmon and duck were... More

We had our anniversary dinner there and thoroughly enjoyed the attention that we got. The food was outstanding and the wine selection is huge and also excellent. Would definitely return to this restaurant again. The interior is modern and spacious, and it was a very relaxing atmosphere. Also has an excellent bar.

Our party of four had a wonderful dinner experience! We asked for a got a booth instead of a table and chairs. Dinner was pricey, however, so a sampling at the bar's happy hour might be a good introduction.

My husband and I walked to the restaurant from our hotel on the Embarcadero for a late dinner. The bar was mostly full but the restaurant was quite empty. We decided to sit at a table in the bar area. We shared a variety of plates: Tuna poke rice bowl, Steak frites, and the Spanish octopus. Everything was delicious! Our... More

We enjoyed dinner on a blustery night in SF. I had the much Yelped about pork chop. Yes, it was good, yes it was juicy, but to me there was just something off-putting about the texture, a bit slimy actually. W had the vegetarian choice, the Squash Blossom.

I went there for drinks. The place is very fancy and had great cocktails. They seem to have a good happy hour option as well. Recommended to go with coworkers or even for a date.

What's not to like. The service was attentive, knowledge, friendly without being intrusive. The meal was 5 star. The 2 items sent out from the kitchen were a pleasant surprise or at least an appropriate acknowledgement to entice a return visit after ordering a +$175 bottle of pinot noir. We all had the dusk and unanimously agreed it was splendid.... More

The food is good, nothing exceptional. Typical American type of food.Have to say that vegetables were delicious. The meat was OK but not as tender I would have expected. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere.

Beautiful Space and great food. We split 5 apps and they were all very good and inventive. Great way to try several items. Big space and no problem getting a reservation the week before.

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.
