WOW! My new fiance and I (we had got engaged that day) went here to celebrate on the evening of our engagement. We each had a 5 course meal, in total 10 different dishes. The service was absolutely amazing and the food was even better. We both left feeling full, but not too full, but completely satisfied. We had: ahi tuna appetizer, roast maine lobster, herb crusted lamb, filet of beef, seared sea bass, cheese plate, pumpkin soup, pear tart tartini, bananas flambe, and chocolate souffle. We also got 2 glasses of champagne. Since we were also celebrating his birthday, they gave us a little lemon mousse cake with a candle and sent us home with a pumpkin bread wrapped up to-go. Absolutely a must do if you're in SF. Worth all the money we paid. Only complaint is that you sit fairly close to other tables, so you don't really have much privacy.

Beach Chalet Brewery & Restaurant
This is another must-visit San Francisco establishment that I have been frequenting ever since it opened in the 90s. I noticed that some folks have used the phrase, "tourist trap." While I agree that tourists do frequent this spot, I must point out that this is certainly no "trap." And as someone who loves and is proud of San Francisco, I actually INVITE tourists to visit Beach Chalet, so that I can share with them one of my favorite spots in the City.Beach Chalet is also a microbrewery restaurant that offers top notch craft beers. Beach Chalet upstairs; Park Chalet downstairs - can't go wrong with either - both offer excellent libations, and also live entertainment on most nights.Oh, and if you have never been, set aside 5-10 minutes to browse the murals and museum-artifacts and the scale model of Golden Gate Park.

THE EATS:Spanish Chorizo -- A dish that came with a full, juicy, chorizo link instead of the normally smaller ground up pieces you find in a chorizo dish. Accompanied by a handful of perfectly seasoned potatoes and two even more perfectly done poached eggs. Super thin pieces of cheese were grated over the dish as a finishing touch. This dish definitely did not disappoint. If you're a fan of eggs + sausage, don't hesitate on this one! Soft-Scrambled eggs -- Super simple and classic, yet somehow they've made this a fancy $$$-worthy dish. The eggs are extremely yolk-y (very yellow, very creamy) and true to its name (very soft.) Carefully poured onto a large piece of crispy grilled toast that is topped by a couple slices of tasso ham and spinach, this dish was not only beautiful to look at, but also mouth-watering good.

Little Joe's
The new 5th street location is the classiest ever. We've been coming to Little Joe's since 1983 & followed them as they've moved a few times, enjoying the exact same recipes. Open the door & the smell of garlic & sauces puts a smile on your face that the food lives up to. They've added a few new dishes that are great too, thanks to the chefs & the local super fresh fish. The bar is Top Shelf spirits & wine, and the bartenders are great. The HOMEMADE perfect panne cotta shouldn't be missed. The prices are fantastic for the City, but the perfect dishes will keep us coming for another 28 years!

Capri Ristorante Pizza
Capri has a banner on their wall commemorating their 24+ years in business, and it’s no wonder why-- I’ve been a regular customer since the 1980s and they richly deserve their success. The wait staff is always friendly and funny, and the owners greet the customers and obviously appreciate the business coming through the door. The food is great-- the pizza has the proper San Francisco chewy crust, and the huge variety of pastas are at a price so low I don’t know how they make a profit. Ask to sit by the window-- the people-watching and street scene are all part of the package (it’s the Castro, Mary).

Town Hall Restaurant
There is not one bad thing I have to say about Town Hall. There is a great vibe the minute you step foot into the restaurant and they can accommodate small and large parties. By far my favorite appetizer is their BBQ shrimp with the warm sauce over the perfectly crisp garlic bread. As many times as I've tried to recreate it at home, nothing comes close. There is not a single thing on the menu that is bad and when you get the check it comes in a book filled with previous customers' reviews. The best decision you could make in 2016 is to take yourself here for a dinner you won't forget.

Boudin Sourdough Bakery & Cafe
We randomly picked this place while in SF and it was a great decision. It was packed and about a 45 minute wait but we grabbed a table at the bar right away. The sourdough chowder bowl was fantastic!! We also got the fish tacos but it wasn't worth the $18. They screwed up the taco order, then forgot to put it on the bill, and then added it but added the wrong amount of tacos and in the end they just comped us the tacos. The staff was super friendly and patient. Love seeing the bread being made right there and how they carry it around the ceiling in the baskets.

This place is AMAZING!!! Possibly one of the best dinners I've ever had. The cocktails are freakin' delicious and the pizza I had, The Castro, was absolutely outstanding. Not to mention the cool but not pretentious atmosphere, I never wanted to leave! Plus, the waitress was exceptionally nice and in her efforts to look out for me, made sure I caught a cab back to my hotel rather than hoof it back, as I had done to get there. Seriously, this place is fantastic and I couldn't recommend it any stronger!!

Giorgio's Pizza
Giorgio's has been serving up excellent pizza in the Richmond district of San Francisco for decades. Go there for the pizza but the other dinners on the menu are also very good. The decor is not fancy -- very traditional Italian restaurant dining room. You know it's good because you often see members of the SFPD dining there while on break. Celebrity sighting - we once saw Van Morrison enjoying a pizza pie at Giorgio's.

Hops & Hominy
We had the Mac and cheese to start which was delicious. The complimentary cornbread was fresh from the oven in its own bread pan. The fried chicken was juicy and had a spicy sauce. Which was good, just be aware that the sauce is spicy (might want it on the side). We got the ice cream sandwich for dessert which was pretty frozen. Needed to thaw for a few minutes, but tasty. The drinks were great and has a sizable bar.

Just a moment...
