Came here to celebrate a special occasion with my husband and two children. The food was very good - the seafood was fresh, the filet mignon was cooked medium to perfection and the kids devoured their chicken quesadilla and hamburger. The best thing about the dining experience was the excellent service. Ida made our night. She was engaging, polite and catered to every one of our requests. Love her! Go Trojans!!! More

The RiddlerThe Riddler

Wine Bar | Civic Center / Hayes Valley / Van Ness, San Francisco
Booked 10 times today

The Riddler is a Champagne bar in the heart of San Francisco’s Hayes Valley, occupying a tiny window-lined corner cafe space that dates back to the late 1800’s. We have over 100 Champagnes by the bottle and dozens of sparkling wines by the glass to choose from: old and new, traditional classics and unusual discoveries, by the glass and by the bottle (or magnum or 9L). At the center of our space is an old wooden backbar that we’ve lined with a collection of vintage Champagne buckets and glassware that we’ve picked up at flea markets and estate sales over the last decade.

We’re a women-led team: we have 33 investors, all of whom are women, and our entire management team happens to be led by a bad-ass crew of women. We love serious wines but don’t take ourselves too seriously: we pair our Champagne with tater tot waffles, serve our caviar with potato chips, and offer free popcorn all day and all night. And we’re always happy to saber a bottle for you in the alleyway next door.More

Italian | Glen Ellen, Wine Country
Booked 2 times today

Authentic Cuisine from the Umbria Region of Italy

Giulio Tempesta, inspired by his family, set out to create the only Italian restaurant in San Francisco to feature a menu specific to the Umbria Region of Italy.

Giulio’s creation, with the support of Michela Tempesta, was Ristorante Umbria. They established one of the best Italian restaurants in the city. The decor, the food and the friendly service all add up to the ambiance that made Ristorante Umbria so special and kept guests, both local and visiting, coming back for more.

It is with that same spirit that the menu for Umbria Glen Ellen was cultivated from the original menu, keeping old favorites and introducing new ones.

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.
