    We've been there several times before, but this was the first time we ordered pizza. It was great! Loved the super thin crust, and the chopped tomatoes rather than tomato sauce. Really good. Also, a small salad was plenty big enough to share. We'll be back.

    We returned to Zuni after a ten year hiatus and were not disappointed. The service was attentive, the food delicious, and the cocktails creative. What a pleasure. Just wish we had been up for the very special chicken for two with bread salad, but since we came a few days after Thanksgiving we simply could not face poultry just yet.

    The service was outstanding as was the pasta dishes. We were a group of five and all loved the food. The Broccolini was particularly delicious.

    I've been going to Foreign Cinema since the 90s. And I've written several reviews. It's always pretty much fabulous fun for all when I go. Sometimes the food isn't as memorable as the last. This time, however, I LOVED all of it. Everything was cooked to perfection. And the meal was simple, generous, creative and refined. The cocktails were also excellent. I had just returned from Eugene and Bend where I tried to have a good cocktail. These were by far superior. The Colleen (a tequila cocktail) keeps getting reinvented here, and I LOVE that as well. I also had a glass of rioja that was pretty stellar for a very reasonable price. I also love that I didn't feel like I was being gouged, the price of everything was reasonable for San Francisco. I think this is uber important, and earns my respect and thanks.

    I had such a wonderful experience at Nopa. It was my partners birthday and they granted all my requests from preferred seating to bringing out the dessert with a birthday candle. The staff were extremely kind and attentive and the food was absolutely amazing! Highly recommend the burger but everything we ate from starters to desserts were fantastic. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting SF!

Discover Cole Valley

While it may be close to the iconic Haight Ashbury, this tiny neighborhood nestled beneath Sutro Forest has its own dining vibe going on. Tucked slightly away from the tourist foot traffic of the Lower Haight is a unique area that has a community-driven feel, and enough hikes to work off any gluttonous meals. There are eggs Benedict brunch shrines, often with the accompanying long lines that cements a restaurant as a weekend institution. On the fancier side, new wine bars have popped up to elevate afterwork drinks, while upscale Mexican upstarts offer energetic meetup spots for a group of friends. Whatever the place, Cole Valley brings an eclectic coziness to the table.
