No reservations in advance for brunch, there is an online wait list that you sign up for when you arrive at the door and they call when your table is ready. Very busy place, even when dining it seems like a very fast paced environment....The food was great - definitely have the millionaires bacon - I had it in the Blackstone Benny, delicious.More

Had dinner for the first time at Blackwood on Chestnut St in the Marina District. This has long been a favorite breakfast stop when we visit SF, but was equally delighted with their dinner menu. As always service was good, and wine selection went well...with meals on the menu. My shrimp on fried rice was jumbo shrimp - similar to lobster tails in size - served in shells on a bed of flavorful and moist fried rice that was captured under a net of egg that was thin and looked to be done on a waffle iron. I am not a big egg person, but this was great, and did not taste like a traditional egg. Dessert was a good way to top off the meal and to share. Will definitely add this to our dinner rotation the next time we stay in the Cow Hollow neighborhood - which is our favorite place to stay in SF. The name Cow Hollow is derived from the fact that when SF was a young city this area was a dairy. No sign of cows remain, but this neighborhood has great restaurants, shops, and several nice smaller hotels that offer free parking on site.More

We were a group of five old friends gathering for a holiday dinner. The pan-Asian menu includes a variety of Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese options. All were delightful. Our waitress was helpful in avoiding dishes with ingredients some of us were allergic to. The drinks...were strong and tasty. The vibe was young and friendly, and the noise level was JUST on the bearable side. They have the largest indoor video screen I've ever seen, bit with no audio.More

We had restrictions in terms of food choices - no garlic, no shallots and vegetarian only. The waitress was very patient with us in terms of suggesting the best options available. Food arrived on time and was tasty. We ordered Grilled Eggplant Sandwich and California...Burger.More

It has the reputation for Thai food with an American twist so I wasn't expecting much by way of authenticity. The portions were huge when they came and the food lovely. The maitre is very friendly and although it isn't cheap it was a very...satisfying mealMore

Visited here by accident but the menu looked nice and different. My wife and I wanted something different. Linz had the pancakes with maple syrup and bacon and I had a thai shakshuka. Neither of us were disappointed for sure. Food and service were both...top draw and we thoroughly enjoyed out food. I highly reccomend a visit.More

Hi Danielle. Thank you for your third visit and your compliments on our food. We do stop serving happy hour items and prices after 6pm and your server should have prompted you for another round before that passed. We'll keep an eye on that and...More

I’ve tried to have friends here three times, But the lines were too busy. Went on the Yelp app and got myself in line and still waited 40 minutes after I arrived with a total wait of over an hour. My husband ordered a crab...omelette - not the greatest and I order the basic eggs and potatoes, We had a side consisting of two pieces of millionaires bacon and two regular coffees. Bill came up to $80 for breakfast and nothing about the visit was that special. Probably should’ve tried to order something more exotic, but we really were looking for breakfast and most people were eating similar dishes. The service was fine the plates were beautiful but not worth the time and money.More

A beautiful cozy space, not typical of a Thai restaurant, with a clever outdoor fireplace on the front porch. Panang Curry was a bit disappointing, with tough, greasy chicken and no yams in sight. Tuna cups were delicious. Service was outstanding, as we were in...a hurry and the server managed to deliver our food in a flash.More

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
