Let's get the bad part out of the way. Parking is very difficult for Saturday nights. We ended up paying $20 to park in the Smart and Final lot about 1.5 blocks away. I wish they would offer valet parking. Food is high quality. The salmon and lamb kebabs were delicious. Service is friendly and welcoming. My Turkish friend said that the food is Americanized. But our party enjoyed it. I have had more flavorful Turkish food on the peninsula but it may be just a difference in style of cooking. The menu is limited for vegetarians. They have a handful of items for vegans. Except for a salad, we did not order those items. More

The rooms are configured so all tables have a good view of the ocean. The rock formations and swooping birds are delightful. The food was quite innovative and nicely seasoned and presented.

Japanese | Richmond District, San Francisco

Food was on par with average Japanese restaurant. Had reservations for 5:30 on Sun night but really didn’t need them. Reasonable since 2 of us had entree combo, 3rd person had udon w/ tempura & the 4th had poke bowl w/ couple of nigiri. We shared CA roll w/ real crab (very good) & dragon roll (ok). My entree combo was steak teriyaki and tempura. I was disappointed w/ the one piece of shrimp that was small and skinny. The poke bowl didn’t come w/ rice. Servers were attentive and did keep our water glasses and teacups filled. We were able to spend a quiet evening (2 hrs plus) talking & catching up. We had a $25 Groupon as well. In the end, we ordered a spider roll. Only one end had the fried legs instead of both ends. I would go again if in the neighborhood, but parking can be challenging. More

Russian Renaissance is a cozy Russian restaurant that is perfect for a unique date night. Russian Renaissance does not require reservations but does encourage them if you are coming with a large group or in the case that you want to ensure a seat upon arrival. Group events like birthday parties or anniversary celebrations are easily handled with advanced notice. More
