Went for the lunch tasting menu. The food was excellent, the service outstanding. Not rushed, but attentive. Suitable for a special occasion or an important business affair. Prices to match... The restaurant was full, so reservation is strongly advised.

We went with my son and his wife for a special dinner. Ambiance, service, quality and presentation of food was exceptional. Staff was very helpful, explanatory and u derstood the menu. We all loved it. To celebrate a special occasion, well worth a visit.

We were at bar tonight. Horrible, incompetent service. Not sure they are even allowed to work. I will inform homeland security. They tried to also be violent with my friend. Avoid this place at all costs. We are filling a lawsuit. A disgusting, dated place.

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
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
