I met some friends for a late meal, and since there wasn't a ball game, we had no trouble getting a table. There are several types - high tops, regular tables and couches/lounge chairs by low tables. The staff act as a team, anyone willing to get you a drink or some food. The prices are a bit higher than... More

Shared tapas style food that was great. A good selection and excellent service and a comprehensive wine list. Seating on high stools. Interesting refitted building. Recommended.

Had heard about District from friends, stopped in after dinner down the street for a drink. Great atmosphere, old brick and timber, looks like a previous warehouse (which would make sense with the area that is now high end condos, bars, etc. all within walking distance of the ball park). Oversized couches on one side for larger parties, massive bar... More

Had dinner at District after a trade show. It was a great experience. The food was fantastic with unique flavor combinations and a really interesting menu. It was refreshing to have so many unique menu choices.

This place is a charm, a jewel! The flights of wine are very well selected, but be bold and just pick a bottle. You will not be disappointed. Food is gorgeous as well and staff is friendly. Do yourselves a favor and do not miss this place!

We had a couple of hours to kill before a show at the Utah Hotel and this was the perfect place to do it. We started with one of their house-made charcuterie plates which had some of the best cured meat I've had in the city. Then some deviled eggs with chili and some tempura avocado which was probably the... More

We came here for brunch before a Giants game. The brunch was buffet style but everything was amazing. $15 for bottomless mimosas! I can never pass up bottomless mimosas!!!. Brandon and Ginger took care of us. They were so much fun, and gave us many great ideas on what to do on the remainder of the trip. I would recommend... More

Great apps- in fact I don't remember if they had entrees. Lamb meat balls, tempura avocado, bacon flat bread, shrimp in kind of a hot baking dish. All stuff I remember from a work trip years ago that were great then and great now. Cocktails terrific.

We were staying SoMa and decided to go to District as it was in the area. There were four of us and we ordered 20 dishes in total. Each and everyone dish was AMAZING! We also tried lots of different beers. The service was great, the ambiance was fantastic, I can not recommend this restaurant more highly. At the end... More

Had a great couple of reds the other night after a Giants game. Service, selection and ambiance are wonderful, now I just need to try the small plates. Really enjoy the Oakland District for light bites -- and bourbon flights!

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
