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.

"You can't really argue with dinner in paradise... Hawaii Calls is in our hotel and we finally came for dinner after exploring the local area spots. It was great! Delicious scallop appetizer, and a lovely meal overall. The banana cream pie was an excellent dessert. Mahalo!"

25 Lusk is a sophisticated, approachable fine dining restaurant specializing in seasonal contemporary American cuisine. All of the original exposed brick and massive timbers are still in place, creating a warm and inviting ambiance while maintaining the building's classic, industrial aesthetic.<br>The 9,800-square-foot space includes 120 seats in the main dining area, a spacious lower bar and lounge level, 30-35 seats in the private dining area, semi private dining for parties up to 14 people and a community dining table. <br>Perhaps the most unique element of the 25 Lusk transformations is the open space which allows soaring steel fire orb flues to pass from the main dining level to the lounge below. This design unifies the two-level space while still allowing each level to exist as a distinct venue. 25 Lusk's one-of-a-kind basement level bar and lounge offers a stylish and contemporary setting with an expansive selection of classic and modern cocktails.

Named for the northern French tradition of a shot of brandy between courses, this second location, from the owners of James Beard Award winning Bar Agricole, unites the pleasures of traditional mixed drinks and uncomplicated food. The focus of the kitchen is house-made charcuterie and salumi. As many as 40 types of charcuterie are available on the all-day menu. Seasonal sides and simple cuts of meat round out the dinner options. The menu will change throughout the day from breakfast through dinner and late night. The focus of the drink menu is brandy. Many of the Armagnacs, Cognacs and Calvados served at Trou Normand and Bar Agricole are found nowhere else in the world.

"We had a fantastic lunch at Trou Normand! The outdoor patio was warm, spacious, and vibrant with other Friday lunch-ers - a great vibe. The food was delicious... The Charcuterie and Lardo boards were luxurious, and the Broccoli Sandwich should not be overlooked! The one issue was that we tried to use the new Pay with OpenTable feature and the host marked us at the wrong spot so our bill was wrong. And no matter what the staff did they were unable to remedy it. They were super gracious about it and of course we paid easily the old-fashioned way. It would have been super cool to be able to simply click "pay" and leave, since the service got a little slow at the end of the meal... But payments aside, the food was divine! A must try."
