House salad was good, the Black Cod and Striped Bass was excellent, cod to perfection, not over cooked or under cooked. The sauce on both was a great complement. Dessert was good. House wine, similar to a European red, but a California wine. Our waiter...More

The decor and layout are very nice, staff and drinks are great! Bar is a bit small, but there are window rail seats that are nearly always open. Great place for a drink overall.

Restaurant came highly recommended. Loved the vibe and decor and was looking forward to a good meal. Limited but high quality beer list. I got the beef short ribs and I have never had them so dried out they were almost inedible. Portion size was...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
