Our group of 3 had a delightful lunch at Hillstone. Everything was delicious, but my favorite was the Thai steak salad. Fried chicken sandwich also yummy.

I have been a Houstons/Hillstone loyal customer since 1989 and over the past few years I've grown increasingly disappointed in the fact that their service standards have stated to slip. I have to say that this is NOT the case at the San Francisco location....More

This is a beautiful restaurant, filled with modern art and a live jazz band in the corner. The selection of cocktails was great, and we sat for hours listening to the music and snacking on appetisers. A brilliant restaurant if you want to treat yourself.

I was not expecting much as this restaurant is across the street from a major tourist attraction. The food was great and the staff was very attentive. The roasted artichoke was really good.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
