Boxing Room opened in 2011 in the former 19th-century Standard Shirts Factory, located in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley neighborhood. Executive Chef Justin Simoneaux, a Southern Louisiana native, celebrates the Cajun and Creole dishes of New Orleans and coastal Louisiana, coupled with seasonal Northern California ingredients. Additionally, Boxing Room offers oysters from the raw bar, and an extensive selection of beer and wine on tap. Since opening, Boxing Room has been named one of San Francisco’s Best New Restaurants by 7x7 magazine, and San Francisco magazine gave the restaurant a 3-star review. Boxing Room is open daily for dinner, lunch during the week, and brunch on the weekend.

"Very good versions of Louisiana/Southern dishes -- and I'm from MS. Quite nice service too, notably better than in many places nearby.
Advice: Don't sit by the window along Grove Street -- it seems not to be well sealed and is therefore drafty. And try the German Reisling -- pairs perfectly with the spicy dishes -- which are not that spicy, happy to report.

"The food at Cafe Bono is usually quite good -- but that night, they must have had someone in the kitchen who isn't skilled at cooking shrimp (for a pasta special involving shrimp). These were slightly overcooked -- making them rubbery. Probably weren't that fresh to start with. Otherwise, a nice place to meet a friend for dinner. There aren't that many places in Palo Alto where the noise level is low enough to allow conversation."

While enjoying one of San Francisco's most dramatic views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands, diners savor Chef Annie Somerville’s imaginative vegetarian cuisine that features local seasonal organic produce and the finest ingredients. Greens emphasizes wonderful dishes created with a balance of colors, flavor and a contrast of textures inspired by the cuisines of the Mediterranean, Asia, Mexico and the American Southwest.

"I forgot to ask for a table in the main dining room -- and that back room is more crowded, noisier, is showing wear and tear -- and from most seats, there's no view. And what happened to serving tea in hot pots -- so it stays hot? My little metal post was barely warm when it arrived at the table -- not what one wants on a cold day."
