We have been here twice during our stay in San Francisco. For me the metric is: "would I return"... the answer an unequivocal "Yes". The choice of wine is mind blowing, the list is very diverse. It features old and new world. The staff is very knowledgeable, and very pleasant. On our return, we were recognized, which in SF is... More

Being from El Rito NM, I have never experienced anything like the Press club. I didn't even know they made wine in Italy, but they do, and it's pretty darn good. The French wine is pretty good too. I probably should not have worn my hat and boots because I got a lot of looks from the gender that I... More

After spending all day working a conference we stopped here for a bit of respite. Beautiful and relaxing. Tremendous wine list and small bites on a Sunday. Happy hour bottles $70 and up are half price. We enjoyed a Mushroom pizzette was savory and a selection of 4 cheeses with perfect accompaniments and our 2014 Kistler!

After work crowd is plentiful. Great wine selection and beautiful setting. A small tip is that the tables you come to when first going down the steps, are reserved after 5:30... go straight back past the bar to a quiet sitting area...

This large downstairs bar was nearly filled on a relatively early (before 7) Friday evening. We found a place near the back. We (party of three) enjoyed our drinks (a glass of wine, a beer, and a beer sampler) and were able to make conversation even though the bar was loud with patrons talking and music playing. The server was... More

I came in right at the end of happy hour and the place was very busy, there were one or two tables and a few spots at the bar available though.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
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.
