Dined here during our recent trip to San Francisco, and thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ chicken pizza - one of the best I've tasted - felt bad I couldn't finish it as the portion was simply huge! Excellent service as well, waiter was constantly filling up...More

The pizza was nice enough but took ages to arrive. Fine for a casual bite - not much ambience etc but to be expected I guess.

Do yourself a favor and order the Rib Eye at a California Kitchen. The steak I had this evening was absolutely outstanding. Service was great. Value good.

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
