With its large oval booths and rich bronze leather banquets, copper ceiling with walnut trim and particular lighting, the main dining room at Harry's Café & Steak caters to both Wall Streeters as well as residents of the burgeoning Financial district neighborhood. Patrons will immediately be drawn to the 47 foot bar, covered in solid, rich American Black Walnut. Gone are the six free telephones, stock ticker and munifacts machines that once graced the bar area of the original, replaced by a professional sound system and separate bar seating designed to create a distinct lounge area where guests can enjoy great cocktails as well as food. Our separate wine cellar dining room evokes memories of the original restaurant in a more intimate setting. The 70 seat wine cellar has its own entrance located on Pearl Street but is also accessible from the main dining room.

"Not many full service restaurants in this food-cart and fast-food festooned neighborhood. Lunch at Harry's is a pleasant option--burgers are good, lobster-roll-kinda-thing is good, some soups are good (shrimp bisque was pretty tasteless), salads are nice. Service is quick. Place is a little noisy but decor is pleasant. And in case anyone still drinks alcohol at lunch--they do have a full bar."

Sinigual celebrates a fusion of contemporary and native flavors of Mexico. Even the name itself is a fusion of words, meaning without equal, above the rest and unique. Sinigual artfully blends the traditional and the unexpected. A pleasing palette of colors, textures and tastes that brings to life the very essence of all that Mexico celebrates. Rich culture. Delicious cuisine. Festive gatherings of family and friends. At Sinigual, you will receive unparalleled service and taste creative interpretations of nuevo classics prepared with only the freshest and finest ingredients. Dishes are designed to satisfy and surprise. Our flour tortillas are handmade, prepared fresh throughout the day and served with our fresh salsa quemada, salsa roja and signature honey butter. We invite you on a culinary journey through Mexico's past. And it's future.

"The margaritas don't seem to have any tequila--but they do have plenty of ice. The second round was tasteless--thin, watery. The guacamole, allegedly spiced as we selected, was bland (we asked for spicy). The steak with Chimchuri sauce was delicious. The service was a little weird. From the moment we sat down, our waitress spoke in terms of "we"--like she was one of us ("is this our first time in the restaurant?" "how do we like the margaritas?"). And when we commented that the jalapeno margaritas didn't have enough "heat" she said that they were served the way SHE likes them!"

"Food was great as always, and the place was fully booked yet not noisy. Service was excellent. The prix fixe menu includes excellent selections from the standard menu, and the crudo selections are all heavenly. A really good selection of wines by the glass and a very helpful somelmelier."

Perched above the waves of San Francisco’s picturesque Ocean Beach the historic Cliff House is home to the stunning Sutro’s at the Cliff House restaurant. With the most spectacular ocean views in the City and contemporary American cuisine that draws heavily from the bounty of the ocean visible from every angle of the restaurant, dining at Sutro’s is the quintessential San Francisco experience. The menu features local seafood offerings like whole roasted Petrale sole, Dungeness crab, and local shellfish as well as fresh produce farmed using sustainable practices. The Cliff House also offers the more casual Bistro Restaurant (no reservations), open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the Sunday Champagne Buffet (must phone for reservations).

"You can't beat the view--it's a shame the windows don't open. The food was very good, and a nice wine list with enough selections by the glass."

"I've eaten here maybe 4 times, and this last time I wasn't overwhelmed. The Toro and the Tuna Tartare were fine, but the heirloom tomato salad was tasteless. To their credit, I was not charged for the salad. Not sure I'm rushing back here on my next trip to SF."

Multi-Level Italian Restaurant offering two private dinning areas, outdoor seating and an intimate low ceiling bar.<br />Painted white and blue with dark wood and chrome accents, the space suggests a small yacht cruising around the Isle of Capri.

"Nothing unusual about this visit except we sat upstairs for a change. The food was good but didn't blow us away on this visit (usually something really surprises us). Service was excellent. Stuck to basics--zucchini blossoms, linguine with clams, chicken with lemon sauce, tartufo. All were good."

Voted "one of the Top 10 best steakhouses in New York City," Nick & Stef's is a masterful blend of ultra-stylish contemporary design and time-honored culinary artistry. Directly adjacent to Madison Square Garden on West 33rd St. at 8th Ave., it's the place to eat before and after concerts and games for succulent dry-aged certified black angus steaks, the freshest seafood and signature side dishes. <br />

"We went on a very quiet August Saturday night--the place was empty. Service was fine and the food was very good. We had lobster (the summery lobster festival menu is great) and steak. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the peppercorn sauce (you can choose from about a half dozen sauces to be served on the side) was wonderful and really complemented the steaks. The 8 oz fillet was just the right size. The caesar salad was ok. I would imagine that this place gets pretty noisy when filled to capacity, but the night we were there it was quiet and calm. We'll be back."
