Alcatraz Island

Golden Gate National Recreation Area Fort Mason, B201 San Francisco, CA 94123

If I'm going to visit a different city, then I'm going to do it right... the touristy way. Three of us took the ferry over to Alcatraz Island for the tour, and boy, was it interesting and eerie! I hadn't actually watched "The Rock" but had heard many stories about Alcatraz, you know, being secluded and housed dangerous criminals and ...

    Ciao Bella Gelato -- CLOSED

    1 Ferry Bldg Suite 8 San Francisco, CA 94111
    0.52 mi from Alcatraz Island

    This is the most amazing gelato I have ever had in my mouth. It tastes like someone just got the fruit, made it into cream, and enhanced the flavors. If you haven't had it before. then you haven't lived. If you had it before, then you can agree with me that you died and gone to heaven

    For all the exemplary press, I was surprised how small and unassuming this place was. And there was no line! I also found the the staff service to be very sincere and friendly. I ordered a combination of chocolate and the banana ice cream. The chocolate was excellent and the banana was good, but not especially noteworthy. But, it did ...

    One of the best bakeries in the World (rivals anything in Paris) but the line out the door is often crazy long. Go early.

    Fantastic, high end Vietnamese food. This place is super popular - enough so that you often need to book several weeks in advance. The food is great. Highly recommend the uni, the papaya salad, and the scallops. Ask for a table near the windows for great views of the bridge. Not cheap.

    Fabulous on a warm evening where you can sit out on the patio and there is a silent movie playing in the background. Great food!

    Pizzeria Delfina

    One of the best pizza in San Francisco. Thin crust with great flavor and fresh ingredients. The only downside is that they don't take reservations and most of the time there is some waiting until you can get a table.

    Nopa dishes up some of the best brunch fare in the city. Unfortunately, everyone knows this and it's nearly impossible to get a quick reservation, so book your table a month out or be prepared to wait several hours to eat.

    Gary Danko's is a 5 star fixed price restaurant less than a block away from the house. Gary Danko just won a James Beard award and you have to make reservations weeks in advance. But it is usually possible to stop in for a glass of wine and hor d'ouvres at the bar on the spur of the moment.

    One would think cutting down on stuffing face would be a good suggestion following Thanksgiving. Not for me! I made sure I prepared myself for a Black Friday dinner here with a small group. It was my first time here, and I made sure that it was a memorable one. I chose their largest cut of prime rib, the Henry ...

    BEEF its whats for dinner...unless you are eating Greek because here at Kokkari they can braise a mean piece of lamb. Juicy, tender, and very filling. For the appetizer I tried the Kalamari stuffed with cheese, it was tasty, but nothing special to it. On the other hand, the grilled octopus was amazing. Cooked perfectly so that it does not ...

    One of the most popular Thai restaurants in San Francisco. The decor is very chick and modern, with a Thai theme. Came here on NYE at 7 pm, so it wasn't busy...yet. We ordered the Tong Yum soup, which was full of shrimps and mushrooms (wasn't as spicy as I had feared), the Spicy Basil Beef (very delicious), and the ...

    You know, reviewing this place solely on the view, service, and food, I'm tempted to give it almost four stars. It's just a wee bit overpriced, in my opinion, but I'm not about to hate on a chain restaurant simply because it's a chain restaurant. They make delicious cheesecake, and some of their other offerings are darn good. In particular, ...

    I drink coffee and booze. Occasionally water. When I come across a good cup of coffee I am a fan for life. Blue Bottle meets all of my stringent requirements. No bitterness, smooth and aromatic. Coffee I can love.

    The bread is good and a staple in San Fran. The Fisherman's Wharf location makes bread shaped like a variety of animals which make fun gifts for friends and family. I recommend the bread bowls.

    The absolute best pizza in San Francisco. Traditional, super thin crust, italian (not NY) style pizza. If you are going to do north beach, this is the place to come. Book ahead - this place gets packed, and for good reason. Try the New Yorker with coal fired 1000 degree oven. The meatballs are also divine.

    Creative - fun- delicious, innovative. Done Right. Brenda's has it down. Open from breakfast to late night dining - they know their stuff. Chicken etouffee - moist, rice-y...hearty and filling. Sweet potato dumplings and Garlic Shrimp Gratin - creative use of familiar ingredients - it works! BFC - Fried Chicken - to die for. Moist, well fried, and collard greens ...
