Enjoy Celadon's award-winning 'Global Comfort Food' in our beautiful dining room or on the lovely courtyard. The seasonally influenced menu features flavors from the Mediterranean, Asia, and the Americas. We are located in the heart of downtown Napa in the Historic Napa Mill.

Boxing Room opened in 2011 in the former 19th-century Standard Shirts Factory, located in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley neighborhood. Executive Chef Justin Simoneaux, a Southern Louisiana native, celebrates the Cajun and Creole dishes of New Orleans and coastal Louisiana, coupled with seasonal Northern California ingredients. Additionally, Boxing Room offers oysters from the raw bar, and an extensive selection of beer and wine on tap. Since opening, Boxing Room has been named one of San Francisco’s Best New Restaurants by 7x7 magazine, and San Francisco magazine gave the restaurant a 3-star review. Boxing Room is open daily for dinner, lunch during the week, and brunch on the weekend.

"Although I'm not a fan of New Orleans Cajun/Creole cuisine, the Boxing Room does produce some interesting and tasty dishes. Some of the favorites, like fried alligator, I will never experience. The gumbo is quite good, and the homemade (I think) bourbon ice cream is a keeper. It's convenient to the Civic Center, opera and symphony, and easy in and out for a quick bite before a performance."

Bistro Don Giovanni offers a warm and inviting experience with all the personality of a Mediterranean hideaway. Chef Donna Scala’s rustic fare incorporates local fruits, vegetables, meat and fowl into traditional, fresh Italian dishes with her signature, creative flair. Freshly baked breads, local olive oil, beautiful salads, tasty appetizers and homemade pastas are inspired by the bounty of Napa Valley. Main courses offer an array of regionally sourced and highest quality creations of chicken, steaks, burgers and seafood. The bar features hundreds of Napa Valley and Italian wines as well as a host of signature cocktails.

For nearly twenty years the restaurants of the Lark Creek Restaurant Group have featured American wines exclusively to complement our commitment to seasonal farm-fresh American fare.

"One Market has been one of my favorite SF restaurants for many years, and it feels like home when I dine there. The menu changes with the season, featuring fresh items from the SF Ferry Bldg Farmers' Market across the street as well as locally-sourced fish and meats, and freshly made soups and pastas. The menu is actually so inviting that I find it hard to narrow my choices. Luckily, a platter of three veggie sides is usually offered along with a selection of three mini desserts (thank goodness!). It's always a joy to eat at One Market!"

This iconic San Francisco restaurant reopened in September 2013, heralding the return of a beautiful destination for modern, eclectic cuisine and cocktails along the City’s Embarcadero. At the helm is renowned chef and owner Bruce Hill. The landmark Fog City Diner, which first opened in 1985, was completely re-imagined by chef Hill and the restaurant’s founders. Maintaining the energy and spirit of the beloved original, this new incarnation offers innovative menus in a sophisticated, warm and open environment. Join us for lunch and dinner seven nights a week, an afternoon cocktail, or weekend brunch. If your reservation time is unavailable, please give us a call so we can better inform you of additional booking options.

"My first time back after the remodel and I was not impressed. The interior is spruced up, sort of, and the food is underwhelming. With so many options in the Embarcadero area, I won't return here."

"Food preparation needs work. Some vegetables are overcooked while others in the same dish are not. Fish is also overcooked at times. It's ok but not great."

"The Boxing Room is a bit of New Orleans in San Francisco and great fun with interesting food choices such as alligator, which I've never had, hush puppies, gumbos and beignets. All great fun to try and to savor. I recommend it for a definite change of pace!"

Enjoy spectacular views of the new Carquinez Bridge and serene San Pablo Bay while dining on the lushly planted patio with heated and cooled cabanas and twinkling lights. Unique weekend brunch with specialty cocktails. Specialties include 100% USDA Certified Prime, Prime Rib and whole Dungeness crab. Unique dining rooms for an intimate dinner or a large group. "We may have a funny name but we're dead serious about our food!!"

"The DF is our go-to destination for Sunday brunch/lunch and it's usually quite good and satisfying. They have tweeked the menu a bit which makes it more flexible (consider a louie salad with a choice of shirmp, crab, salmon or chicken). They consistently offer crab at a reasonable price throughout the year (I believe it comes from Alaska) as well as prime rib, lamb tenderloin and grilled fish, literally something for everyone including a welcoming chidren's menu."

"This was a special menu and special night for Neela, our somewhat local Indian celebrity chef (a winner on Chopped!) to strut her stuff for her friends and followers. So, the regular Q menu, although available, was not served as usual. I did, however, return the next day for a regular Q lunch before my shopping at Whole Foods (a quite convenient location). Neela's food is always superb and I enjoyed it immensely. I also enjoyed my grilled cheese the next day (combined with a very fresh butter lettuce salad). The Q has been a stand-by for me ever since it opened (under Stephen Barber, then BarbersQ) because of the fresh food, good wine and wonderful, handy location."
