Tapas / Small Plates | Downtown / Union Square, San Francisco

Great paella and tapas! We asked for hot sauce to crank up the heat on the seafood paella and it was so delicious. The bacon wrapped dates were also fantastic! And they have air conditioning which was great for the unseasonably 90+ weather we experienced (we found out not all restaurants in SF have AC). More

Peruvian | Financial District / Embarcadero, San Francisco

It was all we had expected 1st time diners while visiting daughter & family in the area. Peruvian friends recommended it to us because they eat there when they visit SF Food was imaginative and delicious and served with a flair We had the all-inclusive meal and thought it was scrumptious and a good value Only disappointment was that we had booked several days in advance and when we arrived the only table offered to us was a small table for two on the window but with an unattractive view of the wharf nextdoor More

Harborview Restaurant & Bar
Harborview Restaurant & Bar

$$$$
Chinese | Financial District / Embarcadero, San Francisco

Solid food and generous portions for dinner (we got banquet menu option B) , but nothing really standout aside from the black cod. Cocktails were on the lighter/weaker side. Service was attentive and quick even with a full house, but still very much a Chinese restaurant in terms of service (efficiency and all business, not personal). The ambiance was nice and understated, but the noise level was ridiculous. At our table of 9 we were yelling at each other from across the table the entire meal. There's no noise dampening anywhere. Be prepared to spend $$$ especially if you order cocktails and/or wine. While the food and service were solid, nothing I can think of commanded such a high price point. We had a good time though.

Latin American | Healdsburg, Wine Country

We've been to Guiso many times over the past few years and this last time I was a bit disappointed with part of our meal...Ribeye was now on the menu and it was good but not great, just a little overseasoned...One of us had fish and it was a little dry and the complimentary seasoning wasn't the best..The salads were outstanding and all the veggies were garden fresh...The service was exceptional. The chef /owner was not there and had two young chefs preparing the food and so I wonder if that had anything to do with things being not quite up to their usual five star level...I would also encourage the chef to go back and look at some of his earlier menus and maybe bring back some of the amazing dishes that hooked us on Guiso right after it first opened...

Piccolo Napoli
Piccolo Napoli
Italian | Orinda, East Bay

Thank you for joining us at Piccolo Napoli. We are delighted you chose to dine with us today! Just as in Italy, when our restaurant is humming with activity, it may take 30-45 minutes to make your pizza. We do not use frozen dough. We do not use machines to stamp out crust. We stretch each pizza by hand to order and you’ll notice that often your pizza won’t be a perfect circle but you will love the way it looks and tastes. We make pizza true to tradition. On day one we start our yeast batch in the morning and then proceed by combining our ingredients in a low speed mixer. The dough then rests overnight in our walk-in refrigerator. On day two the dough is hand-kneaded into different size potions and put to rest overnight once again. Day three the dough is ready to be used. After you place your order one of our pizza cooks hand stretches and tosses your pizza to size and applies the requested sauce and toppings.More

Discover San Francisco

Farm-to-table is everywhere now, but it was here first. Just north of San Francisco, the values-forward counties of Marin and Sonoma offer an abundance of sustainably sourced produce. Of course, there’s more to eat in the Bay than leafy greens alone—don’t miss the mainstays like Cioppino (a seafood stew best eaten with thick-cut garlic bread), Mission-style burritos, local oysters and Neapolitan pizza where pizzerias around town war for the ultimate version. The city has long been home to distinct international flavors, so for authentic dim sum, Chinatown tops the charts. The Mission is ablaze with longstanding taquerias, steakhouses and a new wave of artisanal bakeries and coffee houses. And the Fisherman’s Wharf, while touristy, is the spot for Bay caught seafood. From there, we recommend walking to Crissy Field for Golden Gate Bridge gazing and sparkling sunshine.
