Quite good! We went with friends who are regulars and got the regular treatment, very attentive and great explanations of the menu. We did corkage on a great bottle of Russian River pinot noir our friends brought and ordered a bottle from their list as well. This is a great restaurant in a very nice neighborhood and I would recommend... More

The hotel concierge recommended it as his favorite and we agree! An attentive and fun waiter and TDF food. Hummus with homemade pita, tender beets, arugula salad with tangy light dressing and exquisite linguine with eggplant, tomato and smoked mozzarella. Great wines recommended by our waiter - a fabulous meal all around.

Terzo serves good food -- consistent with its pricepoint and competitors in San Francisco. The room is nice, though gets loud. One server who often works there seems like he'd be much, much happier somewhere else. I hope he gets the opportunity.

Our Saturday night dinner with friends who live in the neighborhood was fabulous. Waiter very friendly including helping us select entrees and participating in our conversation in an amusing sort of way (our friends are regulars at this spot, so everybody knew everybody). Since there were four of us, we had one of practically everything, including the braised pork meatballs,... More

SF locals chose this restaurant for our one 'big' night out and we loved it. They describe themselves as Mediterranean, but I would also suggest that they are West Coast/local fare with a tapas-style delivery. We ordered a number of small and large plates and shared. We ordered two of the tomato braised pork meatballs, but there were plenty of... More

Just last night, I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant with family from France and old friends. Our server, Ron, was awesome, with great recommendations and suggestions and when it came to trying to figure out what wine to order given that some in my group had pretty particular tastes, he was also amazing, choosing just the right...

Terzo is one of our favorite restaurants in San Francisco, and perhaps our biggest go-to recommendation for people visiting the city. The restaurant is probably best described as Mediterranean, but they utilize local ingredients (as great SF restaurants tend to do). For its quality, Terzo is very affordable. We recommend ordering several small plates and one entree (or just all... 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.
