Really good seafood at a price but well presented and with a really different twist. All 4 meals both mains and starters were well received and the plates cleared. The only down side was the really slow service whilst it didn't spoil the food it...More

We had over 100 people at dinner. They handled it very well - had appetizer trays floating through the crowd - some of the best I've ever had. A crusted ahi something and potstickers. Had the Mahi - it was great!

One of the best grilled salmon I've ever eaten. Prepared with a japanese citrus sauce; and served with fresh vegetables. This restaurante is very well located, over Mission Street, close to Moscone Center (just 2 or 3 blocks).

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
