I can't review the food, we didn't eat here. But we had cocktails before a dinner reservation somewhere else nearby. Good service, nice cocktails.

A nice and easy spot to have breakfast/brunch during the day, and dinner/after dinner at evening. They got full bar and good selection of food. Staff is friendly and prices aligned with San Francisco average

Great place and service. Nice people. I had great experience here. You can choose between eating or sitting on the "bar". Still i say that this place is not for the gourme fancypants.

I have to say that for pub good this was pretty darn good. We had 3 different appetizers and all were wonderful. We had a small pizza, spring rolls and shrimp cakes. All were great and not over priced for SF! I would go back

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
