Seafood | Castro, San Francisco

I was very happy with this restaurant. We had the short ribs and the cioppino and both were excellent. the short ribs were tender with added red chard and potato. The cioppino was served nice and hot with plenty of seafood in it. Our server was a pro. She was right there for everything with a winning attitude too. I'd want a table in her area for sure next time. The drinks were good and reasonably priced. More

As we walked in into the restaurant were greeted and felt like home. Service was impeccable, food was outstanding, and ambiance was great, but the one thing that Quince really made it for me and my wife was the menu they gave said “happy anniversary” to me and my wife on top. And the small touch and small details I love about a restaurant. Can’t wait to go back! More

Luna Ristorante - ConcordLuna Ristorante - Concord
$$$$
Italian | Concord, East Bay

“I’m the owner and the chef, so I’m always here,” he says in his lyrical Mediterranean accent. “It’s nice to do business with locals.”

Jacifi describes his menu as a blend of new and old: “You get old-school tastes with a modern presentation.” The restaurant specializes in northern and southern Italian standards like saltimbocca, chicken cacciatore, and risotto. But the eighteen-year-old Luna takes these familiar dishes very seriously. Redoune, partner and co-chef Hafid Tadri, and co-chef Habib Jacifi don’t so much replicate the old standards as define them.

Take the fettuccini with Bolognese sauce. Many restaurants make a Bolognese; few do it well. Like the sly smile on the lips of Leonardo da Vinci’s famous lady, this brick red sauce reveals a depth of character beyond its simple appearance. Carrots, celery, and onions add a layer of sweetness, while bacon contributes a sultry, meaty backbone.More

Yemeni's RestaurantYemeni's Restaurant

Middle Eastern | Nob Hill, San Francisco

Chef Mohamed has been cooking professionally in San Francisco since 2004. In 2009 he introduced SF's first-ever Yemeni Restaurant to help diners discover the food of his country. He uses homemade spices, with herbs grown and dried by his family in Yemen and flown in for use in Yemeni's kitchen. So the flavors in Yemeni's marinades are unlike any you will taste outside of Yemen because they are unique to the family tradition. For lovers of exotic cuisine, you can enjoy Vegetarian or Meat Saltah, Lamb or Chicken Mandi, Lamb or Veal Haneed, Ghallaba Beef or Chicken, Lamb or Chicken Agda, and Lamb Liver. There are many options for vegetarians including lentil soup, and Arabian mezaa (falafel, baba ganoush, hummus, tabbouleh). A traditional Yemeni breakfast is also served throughout the day! Beverages include traditional Yemeni milk tea or traditional red tea, Vemto pomegranate drink or fresh juices. More
