Tapas / Small Plates | Downtown / Union Square, San Francisco

I stumbled upon this restaurant on Open Table. I thought it was a different place that I had remembered but was pleasantly surprised once having been seated. The hostess was very helpful especially since I changed the number of people at least twice and then again once we were seated. We were all accommodated with good graces and a helping hand. Our server, Keith, was spectacular in every respect. From adding chairs and place settings, helping with tapas and paella choices, to great advice on the wine, he couldn't have nicer or more helpful. He's one of the reasons we would all comeback. The food was excellent as well, although I would have liked a little more chorizo in the surf & turf paella to spice it up a bit more. The portions were plentiful and I'm planing on getting back to taste more of the options on the menu. More

Californian | Downtown / Union Square, San Francisco

Very nice experience at Anzu. Food was superb. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly. If you go, try the appetizer called "The Rock". You cook tiny, thin slices of beef on a rock at 400 degree temperature. It sizzles and then you dip into any of 3 sauces. Very interesting and fun. Both the food and service at this restaurant is phenomenal. Highly recommend! More

Chinese | Chinatown, San Francisco

We were told about China live by a close friend who has a son that lives in SF. We loved it! We especially loved the smoked Chilean Sea Bass. It melted in our mouths. Then we had to have a dessert that we saw served to the guests sitting at the table next to us. It was shaved mango ice served over sesame soft serve with lychee boba. OMG this was the most amazing dessert I have ever eaten. I’m hoping to go back again before we leave to eat again! More

Chinese | Financial District / Embarcadero, San Francisco

We met for a 1:15 lunch. Disappointing that cart service ended almost as soon as we sat down. We were able to order off the menu, but that takes away from the fun of dim sum in my opinion. Not sure if this is messaged clearly when you make your reservation. More

Rather than fly all the way to Japan, drive to Kenzo Napa for a truly fabulous, dining experience. Entrees and service are excellent. You may choose beautiful wines or sakes to compliment your meal. Their 2016 “Asuka” Cabernet Franc is absolutely delicious. The menu changes every 10 weeks. Go and enjoy. It will be a special evening for all. More
