This was the noisiest restaurant I have ever been in. Everyone was shouting and I would think the staff would have hearing difficulties working here. We had hamburgers which were accompanied by salad and the coriander fries were good. We also had breakfast here of...More

Appetizers in bar area were good. Tomato basil pizza was really good as well as the warm olives. Wine and beer on the expensive side.

We had a large group and the service was excellent. The food was very good, we started with a variety of starters, the fried brussel sprouts with artichokes were fabulous. I had the scallop carpaccio, which was fresh and tasty. I would definitely go back.

vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to

restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
