Fantastic food . Never had anything like it. My dish , which I asked for without meat , had so many delicious al dente vegetables in it, was sublime. I could have had a bowl of the sauce on its own like soup!!!!! Very healthy and good prices too.

This American / Asian place was most welcome on our first night after a long flight from London. A friend took us, who we were meeting in town, and he dived us straight into a bottle of Rancho Sisquoc Riesling which was the perfect accompaniment. Therefore, we had two. Food was also of high quality, my partner had the Pad... More

Attractive looking on the outside, so we went in to try it out. They serve American and Thai food. I like my green curry with chicken, but my hubby doesn't like his burger. He thought they made it too sweet. He likes the burger more savory. The fries are delicious and tasty though. Service was spotty.

This is a great choice for something different, and expertly prepared. I think you could get about anything off the menu and it would be great. Looking up and down the restaurant you could see dish after dish, each as appealing as all of them were. We ordered a couple of different items to share and nothing was disappointing. Don't... More

I went to Blackwood with my colleagues for their Sunday Brunch. We waited about 30 minutes to be seated but given how busy it was it was not too bad of a wait. Our waiter took our order promptly & the food came out within 10-15 minutes and was delicious! One of the best Omelet's I have ever had, was... More

This is one hell of a fascinating place- menu had dishes that when they arrived you couldn't take your eye of them- steaming rice dishes in a stone pot- that the water then mixes up at the table- everything is unusual, delicious and stylishly presented! A very very popular haunt of locals!

This is no ordinary Thai food. It is made the way it should be, not Americanized. You might look on the outside of the restaurant and not be impressed because of the picnic tables but it is definitely worth the food. The hot pots are some of the best you will every have and the curry flavor is amazing. How... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
