The food was excellent. Ordered the Deviled Eggs as an appetizer which became an early delight for the table. Ordered the burger from the menu and was just thrilled with the portion and the quality. More than impressed with the host and the wait staff....More

Although there were a number of tables available when we arrived for our fairly early reservation, they wanted to seat us at a table right next to the area where the wait staff congregated (entering orders?). We asked for another table and were given a...More

We did the private dining in the Sequoia for my wife's bday. The room was awesome. It is a great place to throw a party, especially an adult party. It's big enough for a little dancing. They provide a setup for you to plug in...More

I had the Ramen on special. It was simply delicious. Of course the popovers were dynamic! All washed down with ice cold Kolsch. Perfect!

The popovers here are to die for as is the "healthy" friend chicken (and I'm from the South). The bibb lettuce salad also excellent. Service was very good.

First of all, in March, the upstairs of this restaurant is freezing. The excuse was, it’s an old building. So what? The prices are a bit high. There is no children’s menu, even at lunch. And the famous fried chicken is not moist— it is...More

Good big portions and very tasty!! Order a side or main course less! Portions are big (for a European standard) - nice atmosphere. Prices are little high but ok for this quality food

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,

I wore a blue blazer, white collared shirt, and jeans, but I where that almost everywhere I go. Dress casual. Business/after work crowd. Not a formal place, but not "grungy" as another poster noted.
