Chicago style pizza in CA! If you're visiting from LA, ask them to half bake it. Then you can take it home and fully bake and eat!
The veggie spring rolls are unbelievably tasty. Healthy with subtle flavors and a great crunch. Complement with a tom yum soup for a light summer lunch.
You won't find better views of the bay than at Skates. Visit during happy hour for cocktails, oysters, and the most divine sunset ever.

Local, slow food at its simple and delicious best. My go to spot for working breakfasts on week days.

As part of large scientific conference I organized at Berkeley in late May of 2010, I also arranged a reunion dinner at Le Bateau Ivre for roughly 60 of the conference…

I've never tasted better pizza andywhere in the world and I've tried a lot of different places. amici's is by far the very best tasting. The service is great. The servers are very…

One of the few Mediterranean joints that actually serves food close to authentic dishes. I am not saying they are just like your mom's or friend's mom's homemade dishes... But they…

We had a celebration for a friend in this cute restaurant. The wait staff was friendly, if not terribly efficient (they only filled one water glass each time around). The onion…

My family and I were very loyal customers but for my parents' 25th anniversary we booked the room for a party and they cancelled on us the night before. We dine out every night and…

First off, the menu is very hard to read and navigate, because I do not know French. Even with that, the choices are few and bland. I ordered french toast, and creme fraiche…

I’m a big fan of Light Houses so when I saw this place I could hardly control myself!
It’s a good place to bring the kids too so don’t worry if you have younger ones they have…

the food and not up to the price that they charge. Salads not very good, pizza can be overcooked (this is trendy??)

Bocanova's has a great atmosphere, although a bit noisy inside! I would have given this restaurant 5 stars, but unfortunately we had the worst waiter, who never looked us in the…
900 Grayson. All you need to know about 900 Grayson is their devilishly delicious fried chicken and waffles. Okay, no, they have other star items on their menu like their shrimp and grits but what they are popularly known for is their Demon Lover. The fatty gravy that is slathered on top along with sweet syrup is out of this world. If you're not afraid of bold flavors, this is a must-order!… read more
Homeroom. Hands down the best mac n cheese I've ever had at a restaurant, and under $10 no less! Go with friends or family so you can try their amazing varieties on this classic dish. Dessert is a must too! … read more
Gott's Roadside. For high-end diner fare, there's no place like Gott's. The sliders and shakes are exceptional, but for me, the real draw is the huge fenced-in patio where you can sit, sip, and watch the vast panoply of humanity that make up San Francisco, tourist and native alike.… read more
