Close to Union Square and closer to Paris, Cafe Claude has remained an unpretentious neighborhood meeting place nestled amongst the urban skyscrapers. Cafe Claude is a classic Bistro featuring a zinc bar, Gallic waiters, and Paris cafe style food. Enjoy a lively atmosphere, weekend jazz, and a traditional Parisian cafe menu while seated in a cozy banquette or outdoors on charming Claude lane. <br /><br /><br><br><br /><br />Signature menu items at Cafe Claude include, at lunch, Niçoise Salad, Steak Tartare, Coq au Vin, and Moelleux au Chocolate.

"Such a little gem. Has the feel of the neighborhood bistro in Paris. Shared a bottle of Bourgonne (Burgundy) and the pate, both great. The duck confit was very good. Plate du Jour was Article Char, very much like salmon, sadly a little over cooked. Best entree was the trout."

"Bravas is local for me. Owned by restauranteurs who own several other nearby restaurants, it by far THE BEST! The cocktails are adventurous, but not over the top. Each of the small plates are are unique. The pan tomate is to die for, often requiring a second order. With a few seasonal changes, we always find new adventures and old favorites. The small interior dining area and bar located in an old house are cozy on a Fall evening but the outdoor bar and dining area are fantastic on a warm Summer eve. BRAVO Bravas!"

The symbol of the neighborhood Cantina is an integral part of Latin American culture. Cantinas have been cherished by local communities for generations, providing a neutral space where all people can enjoy outstanding food and signature cocktails with their families and friends.<br /> <br />At La Urbana, we hope to respectfully reinterpret this time-honored tradition by using sustainable ingredients in a contemporary way that represents our Latin roots and global culture while continuing to push the boundaries of modern Mexican food.<br /> <br />¡Salud!

"Arrived before the dining room opened so started with Happy Hour in the "garage". Popcorn was super, we kept loading up. Cocktails were yum and the ceviche was the best. Dinner items were a little disappointing. The octopus was good but not great. "Tamale" on the vegetarian dish was way too firm. Vegetables so-so, not much flavor. Short ribs was also good but not great. We had to ask for salsas and received very small cups of a habanero and tomatillo salsa. Both were good and helped flavor the short ribs. Our waiter was very good and made some good mescal suggestions. Next time will stick yo Happy Hour and order some tacos."

Here at Hana Japanese Restaurant we will be introducing the authentic style of traditional sushi, Japanese cuisine, and wine-friendly foods. We stick to the fresh seasonal fish from Japan that is imported daily and the freshly grown local vegetables and meat. We also have local Napa Valley and Sonoma County Wine and chilled or warm sake that our chef hand-selects from Japan.

"We have thought Japanese/Sushi restaurants in San Francisco were the best. Having discovered Hana we now have a truly great one in our own "backyard", Sonoma County. All of the sushi/sashimi was wonderful. True Japanese wagyu beef sashimi was incredable. Maitaki mushroom tempura fantastic."

"Wanted to take our visiting son and daughter-in-law somewhere with food and an environment they don't have in L.A.. Bravas really hit the mark! We were seated in the fun outdoor area but it began to have a little rain and we were promptly and smoothly moved indoors. Food was terrific. Every dish distinct and delicious. Have not experienced better Tapas anywhere!"

"...save room for the bourbon! Little gem and chicory salads were perfect. De Maison oysters, although pricy, were cooked perfectly. Seafood gumbo delicious. The cracklings were yummy chunks of pork belly, great with a few dashes of their housmade hot sauce. Fried chicken was very good, lightly coated, not, greasy. And OH those whiskys!"
