The prime rib was very good, but the rest of the meal was excellent. Our server, Mitra, was delightful and very attentive! My shout out for the creamed spinach - it was A-MA-ZING.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.

with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
