American | Mountain View, Peninsula

I am a vegetarian, and when Paul Martin first opened, there was nothing on the menu I could eat. Now they have two things -- a mushroom veggie burger and a quinoa bowl. I had the burger, and it was very tasty. Next time, I will try the quinoa. Also, It was not crowded for an early lunch, and conversation was easy and audible. More

Would have given 5 stars, except they were out of chicken wings and poke, which is what we went there for. This forced us to try other dishes, like the mac and cheese and shrimp tacos, they were very tasty as well. I believe the fall festival had them sold out on Saturday night and there was also a wedding shower there that afternoon. Food is always good... More

Went for the 5-course food and wine pairing just after proposing to my now fiancé. This was hands down one of the best experiences of our week long trip to California. The waitress was amazing (forgot name but y’all and blonde- deserves a raise), the chef was extremely personable and knowledgeable, and the wine and food was outstanding. Honestly, we both felt it was the best meal of our lives. 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.
