My wife and I were walking back to our hotel after a visit to Fisherman's Wharf and Lombard street. We decided to walk the Cable care line in case we decided to jump on from our long walk. As we were walking through the Russian Hill neighborhood we came upon the front of Frascati. I stopped, looked in, read the... More

We were staying on Russian Hill and decided to try a neighborhood restaurant and it was vert good. Sat at the bar and talked to manager about the restaurant which was doing great business late in the evening. Had the duck which was cooked well and nicely seasoned. Wife had steak tartare and smoked salmon bruschetta which were both excellent.

We were lucky to get in on a last minute Sunday night booking (due to the NBA playoffs), but all luck to us. We got a prime window seat and magnificent service. And the food was superb. The duck was to die for, the salad was exquisite, and the pasta was home made silken perfection. This restaurant has been going... More

We were entering another establishment and a woman said we really needed to try Frascoti, only she couldn't remember the name. We had a glass of wine and were thinking of ordering when she came back and told us the name and said we'd have no regrets. Well she was right! We all had excellent dinners, enjoyed casual yet excellent... More

Somewhat smug wait staff, but ended up receiving all the food we asked for in a timely manner. We showed a little early for our reservation and was seated immediately. Overall, food was decent and table in the window was great.

Small neighborhood place that I wish I enjoyed more often!! Great wait staff, excellent food and very reasonable prices for the neighborhood. One of the few times I won't make individual recommendations but suggest that you just order what sounds appealing and expect to be satisfied!

A cute restaurant with cosy vibes that serves a mixture of european dishes in their american version ;) We had the octopus salad and the gnocchi to start with. Although the menu states the octopus as the main ingredient of the salad, I must say that in reality you mostly taste the bacon. In general the salad was not too... More

Well worth the walk up from the Wharf. Wonderful cheese plate. Awesome pork chop. Wait staff very welcoming. Had a great ice cream/espresso dessert. Easier walk back down:).

Me, my husband and my parents were visiting SF and a friend suggested this restaurant. We were delighted! The staff was super friendly making us feel always like we've done the best choice regarding all our dishes. The food was great and also the place itself. Recomend it!

We were concerned when we arrived and found that WE were off one day on our reservation. No matter, they worked us in. Excellent all around, particularly the wait staff. I had the flat iron steak which was excellent and done perfectly. The rest of the table was also quite pleased with their selections. WE did not have any desserts... More

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
