Creative, interesting food. Spectacular service. Cozy, appealing atmosphere. We return each year. My husband loves everything. The onion petals are especially amazing and the desserts are well beyond the usual. (The buckwheat waffle and the chocolate-coffee desserts were yummy). Highly recommend.

Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
