We offer a carte blanche 3-course or 5-course menu that changes nightly, along with pairings to complement the evening menu. Bites and a la carte selections from the nightly menu are available at the small 5-6 seat bar. In addition, we offer wines by the glass, bottle, and low proof cocktails.

"We celebrated a birthday with a lovely 5-course tasting menu coupled with the wine pairings. First, the cocktails are amazing - "faux" bourbon made with rice wine that was wonderful and a very nice sangria. The dungeness crab was light and so fresh! Favorite was the pork belly - decadent. The wine paired with the pork belly was a bit off-putting at first - had a "freshly mown grass" taste and aroma but it mellowed and was actually a perfect complement to the fatty rich dish. Our server quickly provided an alternate wine when he heard my comments, which I appreciated. The fish was delicate and very flavorful and the cauliflower dish with mushrooms was a big winner. I am not crazy about pomegranate (dessert) but my hubby loved it. I must say that the bread is terrific - big slices with a wonderful texture served with butter - yum! Also, I found that some dishes needed a little bit more salt and our server quickly brought a dish of sea salt that allowed me to season to my taste. All in all, a lovely evening."

Our cocktails provide fun and interesting enhancements to compliment the meal.<br /><br />Originally a bait tackle shop, Mission Rock Resort is designed to capture the essence of San Francisco's rich history with modern elegance. The current redesign, completed in August 2012 sets to capture the breathtaking scenery from every seat.

"Enjoyed an assortment of baked oysters and crispy tender calamari with good beer and an excellent bourbon. We then feasted on a smoky delicious jambalaya and fish & chips. We joined a chorus of happy birthday for a nearby large group table and the group graciously shared birthday cake with us. This mellow group made our evening even more pleasant. Large outdoor terrace overlooking water is a nice alternative to the comfortable indoor seating."

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.

"We took out of town friends to brunch on a Saturday and everything was a wow! We were lucky and got a table by the window with a view of the Bay that was spectacular - the Marin headlands, boats, the Golden Gate Bridge, and visiting seabirds and seals. Our brunch was very good too, including a fantastic "Pinnacles Scramble", a side order of biscuits we shares (they were absolutely delicious), grilled cheese and an omelet. The bloody marys were also good with pickled veggies along with traditional celery. All in all we had a relaxing time and our guests were impressed with both the food and location."

One of San Francisco’s most romantic restaurants, the Magic Flute, has a new and exciting menu reflecting California-Italian Cuisine. Located in fashionable Presidio Heights, the restaurant with sponge-painted walls and hardwood floors is reminiscent of a family-run trattoria found in a small Tuscan village. Sunlight streams in through large picture windows in the front dining room, and after dark, Florentine wrought-iron chandeliers, imported from Europe, infuse the room with soft light. The equally beautiful rear dining room looks onto a lovely, flower-filled patio with white Italian marble tables and large Italian market umbrellas that make the heated patio the ideal spot for al fresco dining. Phil LaCavera sees to it that service is personal and attentive. The staff also takes great pride in making each party and wedding a memorable occasion. You won’t find a more enchanting ambiance for your special celebration.

"I enjoy bringing friends here for lunch, especially if we can eat in the outdoors garden in back where umbrellas shade us from the sun, and heat lamps are available to chase away the chill. Service is both professional and friendly. The standard lunch offerings are varied (and tasty) and there are daily specials. The blackened salmon was perfectly cooked (on the rare side, which I like), the grilled stone fruit added a nice sweet counterpoint, and the greens were fresh. Delicious bread and olive oil are always served, and the iced tea is excellent."

With an exciting mix of vintage fixtures, comfortable furnishings, and handsome textures, Park Tavern is an elegant spin on a North Beach neighborhood classic. Owner Anna Weinberg and designer Kendra Nicholas of Park Interiors collaborated to divide the room into unique, dedicated spaces -- the handsome marble bar, the terra cotta floored cafe with windows that open onto the patio facing Washington Park, the comfortable dining room with tufted leather banquettes, and an open kitchen with a chef’s counter.<br><br>Park Tavern will showcase Chef Partner Jennifer Puccio's talents with delicious American bistro classics and emphasize seafood from a wood burning oven. From raw to fried, expect boldly flavored dishes that you'll want to eat several times a week. <br><br>Serving up classic cocktails with the candor and character of an old friend, you won't find any overly fancy mixology here. But when it comes to wines, you find something for everyone!

"Our family (4 generations, from 4 months to 93 years old) gathered for a special dinner and we had a wonderful evening! Our server was incredibly attentive, providing a spoon for the baby to teethe on, checking to be sure our food was as ordered and expected and made us feel that our enjoyment was important to her. The food was just as wonderful. We enjoyed our cocktails and then shared lots of delicious starters including soft shelled crab, brussels sprout leaves, deviled eggs and a watermelon/cucumber salad. Entrees were stellar including Portuguese fish stew, steak & fries, scallops. burger and pork chop. Dessert is a must - loved the cherry crumble and bread pudding. We will return."

Marlowe is a market driven neighbourhood bistro housed in a rustic-chic and inviting space. Bright and bold flavors from a three-star chef, and a little family history create an exciting new restaurant concept nestled in San Francisco’s slick SoMa neighborhood. Marlowe was created by restaurateur Anna Weinberg along with a few partners and pals.<br /><br />Offering a menu of classic bistro favorites with unique and flavorful twists, Marlowe Executive Chef Jennifer Puccio, who earned three stars from the San Francisco Chronicle for her cooking at Cortez, created a mix of snacks, appetizers, mains and sides made up of the kind of food she loves to eat when she’s not working.

"We enjoyed a fantastic dinner with a variety of tasty starters including corn soup (a wow!), bone marrow (decadent), perfectly crisped and salted brussels sprouts leaves plus a delicious radish and beet salad. The Marlowe burgers were outstanding and altho I'm not a big fan of chicken, the chicken vert was really delicious. We shared a great dessert (strawberry over ice cream) - 3 of us were sated. Our server was terrific, and the vibe was casual, fun (altho' a bit loud). We had a great evening and will return!"

"Tables of 6-10 dominate the space making it noisy. We had to wait over 15 minutes after our reservation time but I'm glad we stayed. Once seated, we were attended to and got our drinks (beer & wine only), tea (delicious and partially steeped before serving - yay!) and water. There are lots of choices - and everything we ordered was tasty, with high quality ingredients and piping hot out of the kitchen. Serving hot foods means you don't get the food in the order you'd expect - one entree arrived before our small plate appetizers, but that's ok as we were all sharing. We loved the hand roasted chicken, soft-shelled crab, salt & pepper ribs, garlic noodles with shrimp and very fresh and tasty pea shoots. It's always busy here so reserve."

"Dinner is outstanding with a short but varied selection of entrees. Outstanding early girl tomato soup with pardon peppers! Steak was amazing with sweet corn accents. Beautiful calamari appetizer and shrimp entree. Bread basket is fantastic so do order it! Our desserts were also great. I loved the chocolate chip cookie and the deconstructed peach pie was also tasty. Dark wood walls and dim lighting lend a romantic aura but the space also works with a business dinner because conversation feels private (no eavesdropping your neighbors' conversation)."
