Server was very good, except when the kitchen got backed up due to a wine and coffee tasting which we were told only when we asked what happened to our order. She should have advised us there was a possibility of a back-up and we would have ordered sooner. It was a pre-theatre so we had time restraints, however we were there in plenty of time - and the restaurant was not crowded. So the wine tasting must have been in another room (it's a convention hotel). More

Absolutely loved the French cuisine. I had a friend from France who raved about how good Chez Mama was but I think he would have been blown away by this place. The warm and friendly hostess made it so comfortable for us to figure out what to order without feeling any judgments. Great place to celebrate and worth every penny! 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.
