Lovely service and yummy food, not a tourist place but a gem for the local population. The chorizo mussels are special indeed, as is the Veggie burger. On a nice day the setting sun lights up the interior with a cozy glow and allows for...More

Sweet little bar cafe in Nob Hill. We ordered a Cobb Salad w/o corn and dressing on the side, the salmon special and the quesadillas. The Cobb salad was an ok size and nothing special about it. The chicken seemed to have a pesto marinade...More

I have to say that for pub good this was pretty darn good. We had 3 different appetizers and all were wonderful. We had a small pizza, spring rolls and shrimp cakes. All were great and not over priced for SF! I would go back

I run by this place in the early mornings quite often. The cleaning company is constantly dumping dirty/chemical water in the sewer that drains to the bay. I've reported this many times and it keeps happening...

rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
