Terrific dinner with our adult children and spouses. Delicious and varied small plates and entrees, and a wine list the reaches less known areas in Austria, Spain, South America as well as unusual California choices. Classy modern yet relaxed and informal.

I went there with my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday. The restaurant had a birthday card and a mini cake for him which was very nice! We tried their 3 courses tasting menu. The food and the service were very good.

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
