Visited with a friend, every item we had was perfect! Great arugula, tomatoes and tuna appetizers. Each item was picked at the perfect ripeness stage and peak flavor. The main courses or bigger plates were amazing. The Potato wrapped Seabass was incredible - how did...More

returned to Isa after dining there two years ago and, based on informal ambience and quality of meal, it continues to be one of my all-time favorite restaurants. You cant go wrong with any seafood selection but the Butterfish was exceptional.

Ate here a couple years ago and just revisited the place. This is the type of restaurant you want to try when visisting San Francisco. Charming little place off of Lombard with a covered back patio. Lots of character. The food is served family style,...More

Had a great service and delicious food. We got a great advice for wine choice and appetizers, I was amazed with quality of chicken. Beef was undercooked. Desert was crispy and not too sweet .

The food here is really tasty with creative combinations made from quality ingredients. The baked goat cheese with tomato concasse was especially yummy with the contrast of the creamy, warm cheese and the tartness of the tomatoes. Salads are crisp and deftly dressed. And the...More

We visited this restaurant purely because of other reviews. We struggle with American white wines as we find them overly sweet or too oaked for our palate how wonderful to find a New Zealand Sauvignon for $5 a glass for happy hour. What a great...More

It is unusual when every plate is done just perfectly - but it happened at a recent visit to Isa. Starters of grilled local calamari and a nominal side order of local mushrooms in jus de veau. Calamari was sweet, tender, almost melt in mouth....More

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
