Don't waste your money on this place. Yes, the view is amazing, but pick up a sandwich at a local deli and sit on the bench at the marina, enjoying the view without the noise of this over-rated restaurant. Service is horrible. Some of the dishes are good, but seriously, I paid $45.00 for a plate of eggs that was... More

Even though a meat lover, this place was great. Fast service, hand-crafted dishes and amazing experience with the view of Golden Gate by night. Would highly recommend pasta with chantarelle mushrooms.

Second time here and love it. The ambience is wonderful for what is a large restaurant. Staff knowledgeable and very professional. We had the cauliflower salad for our appetiser which was outstanding. My wife had the Mezze appetizer as her main course. It's several small helpings, including delicious lebna, hummus, and Israeli salad. I had a fantastic chili. For dessert... More

This was my first Trip to the West Coast of the United States, a Country I hugely admire and have visited regularly since 1978 (Yes, that's almost 40 Years ago). My "Better Half" M had persuaded me to "endure" an 11 Hour Flight to San Francisco, so between us we did quite a bit of "pre-planning" for our Trip together.... More

After all the premature praise we were disappointed. The waitress was semi friendly, the food boring, the different vegetables had all plus-minus the same taste and the texture. There are much better vegetarian restaurants out there.

Nice setting, terrible service, Now I am fussy but when you go to a restaurant that proclaims its vegetarian, I might be crazy but I thought they would know something about vegetarian food, clearly not as most things had cheese in them and when I quizzed the waiter he had to go and find out about the sources of the...

The view is magnificent. We fortunate to sit in the main dining room because the 2nd room looked like an upgraded and crowded cafeteria. The meals were delicious. Well prepared and using the freshest ingredients. But do I think that $28 for a quinoa stuffed pepper and $24 for a coconut curry is overpriced. Yes I do! The service was... More

The place overlooks the Golden Gate Bridge. Although not much of a view because of the boats. The problem I had here was that it was a hot day. And there were no fans. Also the table we sat at did not comfortably accommodate 6 of us. The food was decent. Not fabulous. Completely vegetarian. Overrated ?? Maybe. Just my... More

We had a great experience at this restaurant. Food was excellent. Each bite of food gave you a different taste. So many different ingredients that you can't describe it into words. Friendly staff. It is right on the marina. Beautiful scenery.

A group of three, we ordered three appetizers, two main courses, and two desserts. (We would have ordered three main courses, but almost every main course contained bell peppers, to which two of us are allergic, or cheese, which the third person wants to avoid.) No dish was interesting; the flavors were muted and the ingredients generally pedestrian. The pasta,... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
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. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
