Californian | Downtown / Union Square, San Francisco

Very nice experience at Anzu. Food was superb. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly. If you go, try the appetizer called "The Rock". You cook tiny, thin slices of beef on a rock at 400 degree temperature. It sizzles and then you dip into any of 3 sauces. Very interesting and fun. Both the food and service at this restaurant is phenomenal. Highly recommend! More

Chinese | Chinatown, San Francisco

We were told about China live by a close friend who has a son that lives in SF. We loved it! We especially loved the smoked Chilean Sea Bass. It melted in our mouths. Then we had to have a dessert that we saw served to the guests sitting at the table next to us. It was shaved mango ice served over sesame soft serve with lychee boba. OMG this was the most amazing dessert I have ever eaten. I’m hoping to go back again before we leave to eat again! More

Chinese | Financial District / Embarcadero, San Francisco

We met for a 1:15 lunch. Disappointing that cart service ended almost as soon as we sat down. We were able to order off the menu, but that takes away from the fun of dim sum in my opinion. Not sure if this is messaged clearly when you make your reservation. More

Food and drinks were delicious though drinks were on the small side for the price. Upstairs is a better area in which to be seated. Menus is limited but everything is delicious. Easy walk to Great Amer Music Hall. More

Rather than fly all the way to Japan, drive to Kenzo Napa for a truly fabulous, dining experience. Entrees and service are excellent. You may choose beautiful wines or sakes to compliment your meal. Their 2016 “Asuka” Cabernet Franc is absolutely delicious. The menu changes every 10 weeks. Go and enjoy. It will be a special evening for all. More

Discover San Francisco

Farm-to-table is everywhere now, but it was here first. Just north of San Francisco, the values-forward counties of Marin and Sonoma offer an abundance of sustainably sourced produce. Of course, there’s more to eat in the Bay than leafy greens alone—don’t miss the mainstays like Cioppino (a seafood stew best eaten with thick-cut garlic bread), Mission-style burritos, local oysters and Neapolitan pizza where pizzerias around town war for the ultimate version. The city has long been home to distinct international flavors, so for authentic dim sum, Chinatown tops the charts. The Mission is ablaze with longstanding taquerias, steakhouses and a new wave of artisanal bakeries and coffee houses. And the Fisherman’s Wharf, while touristy, is the spot for Bay caught seafood. From there, we recommend walking to Crissy Field for Golden Gate Bridge gazing and sparkling sunshine.
