We visited the restaurant on Christmas day (25th Dec). The food quality was amazing and the environment peculiarly warm. A fancy restaurant with friendly staff. We advised of our special occasion beforehand and we received a specialised pudding.

Enjoyable dining experience. All steaks were prepared perfectly. Blackened scallops were fantastic. Wine pairings were on target. Martinis made with Kettle one were not up to par. At $18 each expected it to be better. Enjoy the meal. Skip the cocktails.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
