This James Beard Award winning restaurant with a clientele as diverse as San Francisco opened in 1979. A vibrant Parisian-style standing-only copper bar greets you as you enter on Rose Alley. Zuni's menu changes daily with dishes inspired by traditional Italian and French recipes. Nearly all of the produce, meat, and fish served at Zuni is farmed and harvested in a sustainable manner. Even without a reservation, bar tables are available on a first come, first served basis and the full menu is available. The bar also serves traditional cocktails made with top-shelf ingredients; refreshments at its best in an environment of effortless hospitality. Whether you dine early or prefer to dine after theater, Zuni is a welcoming haven. -Judy Rodgers, chef/co-owner -Gilbert Pilgram, co-owner

"Zuni - as always - is a San Francisco classic. This visit on particular was to show some relatives from Seattle a "quintessential San Francisco restaurant" (their request). Where else to go but Zuni and the famous roast chicken? We ordered all the appetizers - the bresaola was a standout, and the fideus were outstanding. Of course, order the chicken when you sit down - even if it's just for the table and you get other entrees. It's an absolute masterpiece. Desserts were also wonderful - we shared a couple cheese plates and the persimmon pudding. Truly delicious. We'll be back, of course!"

Verbena brings a distinct culinary and beverage experience to the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. Executive Chef Sean Baker, also of Gather Restaurant in Berkeley, incorporates a balance of artisanal vegetable dishes and whole animal butchery. The inspiration for the menu draws from deep working relationships with farmers and ranchers who are extremely passionate about their craft. The bar sets the stage in the restaurant and features an innovative beverage program highlighting carefully crafted small batch spirits and wines.

"We came here to celebrate our friend's engagement... What a wonderful evening! As always, the staff was warm and incredibly hospitable, and made our celebration even more special. We ordered just about everything - the standouts - the frying peppers, little gems, pork cheeks, and grilled chicken. SO good. And be sure to take the staff's recommendations about wine - they are fantastic at suggesting options that complement the meal and meet your price point. We'll be back (again)!"

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.

"Fog City is a classic San Francisco restaurant. Come early for your reservation and enjoy a drink at the bar - great layout and excellent cocktails. The dinner menu is a delight - plenty of options and each dish is created with care. We always get the deviled eggs (the crispy quinoa is fantastic) and the roast chicken... the caramelized lemon really makes the flavors shine. Be sure to save room for dessert, the egg yolk caramel with strauss ice cream and homemade donuts is wildly delicious."

We were born and raised in Italy, and believe that when it comes to Italian food in the U.S., a lot has been lost in translation. We created Ca' Momi to pursue our passion for the true flavors of life. Italian cuisine began with dishes made with few, simple ingredients that were strong enough to stand on their own. In effort to capture them, we use select local organic, and Italian ingredients and prepare our dishes in strict accord with traditional regional recipes. <br /><br />Our name, Ca’ Momi, means “House of Momi” in Italian. Our name a tribute to “Momi dea Bionda”, a man who is legendary in the Veneto region of Italy for his fiery obsession with safeguarding his home. We believe Momi’s protective spirit watches over us in the kitchen!

"Since discovering Ca' Momi last fall, it has quickly become our go-to spot when visiting Napa. Not only do you get to spend time at the lovely Oxbow Market, but the food and service at Ca' Momi are always flawless! Definitely don't miss their pizzas... their Margherita is a masterpiece, and I will forever dream of the Bianco, Rosso & Verde pie. Divine. For those who like bottarga, the Spaghetti alla Bottarga is DELICIOUS. Salty, fishy (in a good way), and the pasta was perfectly al dente. It's delicious with a kick of their homemade chili oil. Super spicy, but it really makes the bottarga shine. They also have their own wines, which are great. Highly recommend starting with the sparking... Buon appetito!"

Thomas Keller’s ad hoc, which literally means "for this purpose," was originally intended to be a temporary restaurant, open during the development of a very different concept. But, due to its loyal following, it was decided that it must be a permanent fixture in Yountville. ad hoc serves a prix fixe, 4-course chalkboard menu, changing daily. Food is served family style and reminiscent of the comfort food with which Chef Keller grew up.

"Ad Hoc was the perfect end to a perfect day. The experience, like every other Thomas Keller project, was flawless. Ad Hoc hit the perfect balance of casual, comfortable dining - like going to a friend's house for dinner - if that friend was a 5-star chef using the best ingredients available. We sat outside, which was lovely, given the sunset and warm weather, and our server(s) were all exceptionally warm, funny, and accommodating. We absolutely adored the tomato salad - like summer on a plate - and the entrees and cheese course were all delicious. Dessert was an especially wonderful experience - "build your own sundaes" with completely fantastic toppings and flavors. All this topped off with exceptional hospitality... Will be back for more."

The Cavalier is an all-day London-inspired brasserie, located in the new Hotel Zetta.<br /><br />This is the third property for restaurateurs Anna Weinberg, James Nicholas & Chef Jennifer Puccio; the team behind Marlowe and Park Tavern. The team has collaborated with award winning San Francisco designer Ken Fulk, who has revamped the interior in deep leather banquettes, polished brass, zinc and white marble, giving it a posh and sultry feel.
