A 2009 San Francisco Chronicle Bay Area Top 100 Restaurant. Willi’s Wine Bar's classic roadhouse appeal captures the casual, laid-back nature of the Sonoma County Wine Country. Tourists and locals feel equally at home enjoying a quick bite or lingering over a glass of wine. The menu at Willi's features 32 international small plates, some wildly inventive and others comfortingly familiar. The knowledgeable staff is eager to help create perfect pairings with wines from the extensive wine list. Diners will find a dazzling array of wines by local producers and are likely to find the winemakers themselves at a nearby table. All wines are available in a two-ounce taste as well as by the glass or bottle. Patio dining is covered and heated.

"We've been twice. I had forgotten the first experience until we were settled in. You can't really settle in because you are pretty well crammed in (and they seem to want you out of there as soon as possible). The food really is not very good - ok, so it's not San Francisco. It all sounds good; it just isn't. "Local foraged crimini mushrooms" - uncooked, dry and rubbery. Roasted carrots - over-dressed with sweet, syrupy something. Chicken skewers - dry, over-dressed. Oysters - served with some sweet vinegrette and pimentos(?!). The arugula salad was good.
Wine - tasting is discouraged.

Mission Beach Cafe is a true San Francisco neighborhood cafe. Offering Blue Bottle Coffee, Alan Carter's amazing morning pastries and desserts, Thomas Martinez's "Seasonal Progressive" cuisine at lunch, brunch, and dinner, or a glass of wine from our California-only wine list, Mission Beach is open throughout the day and evening to serve you. Come relax in our beautifully appointed, modernist environment designed to revive and replenish whether it be for a casual latte and piece of pie or full course, candlelit dinner.

"Definitely a nice addition to a solid collection of restaurants in the Rittenhouse Sq neighborhood. Nice space, nice people, great food - portions are a bit smaller, but excellent and interest preparations. I will definitely go back soon."

In April 1999, Restaurant Nora became America's first certified organic restaurant. This means that 95% or more of everything that you eat at the restaurant has been produced by certified organic growers and farmers all who share in Nora's commitment to sustainable agriculture. Nora always offers seasonal, fresh organic food, prepared in a healthy, balanced way and enjoys a "big following" of environmentalists and politicians, who can eat here with a clear conscience, knowing that what's on their plate hasn't polluted the environment, is healthy for them, and tastes good too. Nora offers a special chef's tasting menu, which is perfectly accompanied by a spectacular choice of wines from our award winning wine list, featuring over 100 exceptional wines from small wine producers. <br />

Where locals come for exciting food, excellent service and a wine list focused on small, artisanal producers. Extraordinary house made pastas are at the focal point of our popular $28, 3-course menu that is centered around local and sustainable ingredients based on the culinary traditions of Spain, Italy, and France.

The Blue Room is simple casual comfort. Housed in a renovated woven hose factory, this nationally acclaimed restaurant is composed of bare wood beams, brick and granite walls, cozy suede banquettes, soft lighting and zinc-topped tables. Chef Robert Grant puts his wood-burning grill to work creating dishes with influences from his time spent cooking his way through Italy, Spain and France using locally-sourced ingredients and techniques gleaned from his stints with renowned chefs Thomas Keller + Barbara Lynch. Along with the lively atmosphere comes an interesting, eclectic and affordable wine list. Stop in on Sunday nights for "Retail Wine" night, where 50 or so wines are offered at retail prices. Good & Friendly.

"From 1996, when I first went to the Blue Room, it has been invariably excellent. I "had to" eat at the Blue Room 3 nights in a week on this trip - NOT a hardship. It was 3-for-3 on all counts. The cuisine is well balanced, interested, local and excellent. Wait staff are great hosts, well informed and considerate. It's a great spot."
