It's next door from " Michael Minna" restaurant when China considered as fancy place. "Barbacco"restaurant is a simpler more down to earth place but they haven't disappointed us . The meal was delicious . We ordered a few dishes such as grilled octopus , citrus...More

We went there with friends that we haven't seen for a long time. The food was great, including veggie options, although I had the soup (ok, but not great) for a main dish, as the set of appetizers (5 for $20) was great and a...More

After hearing such great things about this restaurant, I was expecting a delicious, tasty, memorable meal. Unfortunately it didn't live up to those expectations. The food was nice but nothing special. Prices were on the high side, the restaurant was very loud and 2 or...More

Great location to meet up with friends. The Wine selection is good, menu is average. I enjoyed the Brussel sprouts, sun chokes and mushrooms.

Great food. Try the butternut squash soup-different from the usual. The black cod special was outstanding. Excellent service.

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of

narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
