Californian | Berkeley, East Bay

Have been here many times, but this time, the kitchen and service were spotty. A pasta dish with an egg that should have been poached was hard cooked instead, and it took too long to replace. By the time it arrived, the rest of the dish was cold. More

Californian | Downtown / Union Square, San Francisco

Selected for dinner prior to a show at the Curran, just a block away. Nice looking place, not fancy, nothing special. Prompt, friendly and competent service. Not an extensive menu but good choices. Prices a little on the high side relative to comparable places in Walnut Creek where we live, but I suspect that's partly due to all the SF mandated fees and taxes. We had salmon and seafood risotto, both very good. Could have been hotter, but acceptable temperature. Reasonable corkage ($15). Only "complaint" was the overly loud music, making conversation more difficult, especially since there is virtually nothing to absorb sound in the restaurant More

Great meal and dining experience! There are other places on Laurel St I like better, but on a busy night at the last minute (we reserved 45 minutes before we ate) ... this is worth a try. Nice menu, tasty food and cocktails! More

Chinese | Palo Alto, Peninsula

Our favorite weekend hangout. Its dog friendly. Parking is free/easy. Clean and relaxing. Won ton soup is the best in SF bay area. Not authentic like the ones in Hong Kong. But its very very good ( Im from HK and I did try won ton all over the world). Its my must have at here. Papaya salad with shrimps and tofu skin are tasty. Wine list is very decent. Dim sum are just ok. I don’t mind the price but the taste is just average. Waiting service is hit and miss. But most of the time the team works hard to support customers. 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.
