Californian | Downtown / Union Square, San Francisco

Very nice experience at Anzu. Food was superb. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly. If you go, try the appetizer called "The Rock". You cook tiny, thin slices of beef on a rock at 400 degree temperature. It sizzles and then you dip into any of 3 sauces. Very interesting and fun. Both the food and service at this restaurant is phenomenal. Highly recommend! More

Had a very nice dinner here on a Monday with friends from out of town. Service was great all around, and a special shout-out to our server, Carlos, who was just the best ever. The food and wine were delicious and we loved the new decor and expanded dining area. Cafe Claude is the perfect place for a special and relaxed dinner get-together. So glad that this SF classic is still going strong. More

Wow, what a phenomenal experience. First off, Lisa, is so perfect for the job of hosting this experience. She had such a great personality and makes the experience a ton of fun. Food and wine alone, this would be worth the price. Lisa adds a background on the wine and food and is hilarious. Chef Britny puts together an amazing pairing is so knowledgeable to add so many flavors that work well with the wines. Really a top notch experience. We will be back soon. More

Rather than fly all the way to Japan, drive to Kenzo Napa for a truly fabulous, dining experience. Entrees and service are excellent. You may choose beautiful wines or sakes to compliment your meal. Their 2016 “Asuka” Cabernet Franc is absolutely delicious. The menu changes every 10 weeks. Go and enjoy. It will be a special evening for all. 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.
