We had a large group and the service was excellent. The food was very good, we started with a variety of starters, the fried brussel sprouts with artichokes were fabulous. I had the scallop carpaccio, which was fresh and tasty. I would definitely go back.

The risotto with shrimp and asparagus was tasty but there were not enough shrimp in it. I would definitely order the short rib. That was exceptional. Everyone was happy with their food. Right size portions are reasonable prices.

Met my friend here for drinks after work. The setting on the Embarcadero is nice. The drink experience is otherwise mundane in every way. I would go to Ozumo or Perry's another time, tho' you can sit outside here.

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
