Alcatraz Island

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

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 ...

    Bi-Rite Creamery

    4.54 mi from Alcatraz Island
    126 reviews

    The quintessential trip to the most beloved ice cream parlor in San Francisco - ask anyone and they'll tell you Bi-Rite. Are there better places? Probably. Shorter lines with the most reasonably compared? Absolutely. Does that mean I'm going to go there instead of here? No. Crazy flavors done with perfection...sounds like San Francisco!

    Amazing pastries! Everything is great! My favorite is their Passion Fruit Lime Bavarian Rectangle. It is so light but full of flavor. It is a perfect place for afternoon tea, well, if you can find yourself a seat that is. There is always a line outside the door whether it is mid-morning or late afternoon. However, it is well worth ...

    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.

    Amazing cappuccino - a coffee lover's dream. This place is hard to find - there are no signs outside, only a line out the door to mark it's existence.

    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!

    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.

    Pizzeria Delfina

    Great Neapolitan style pizza in the Mission. I have a couple pizza-loving friends in the area, and while SF has quite a few delicious options for all types of pizza, this one tends to be mentioned in revered tone. I've assumed it's a bit of a pizza-mecca. Now that I've tried their pizza this past visit, I understand now why ...

    42 reviews

    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.

    House of Prime Rib

    2.34 mi from Alcatraz Island
    46 reviews

    My House of Prime Rib visit was quite disastrous and disappointing. If you hail from Los Angeles or anywhere else that Lawry's exists, I would recommend skipping this restaurant altogether. For starters, we had to make a reservation well ahead of time. We arrived a few minutes early to our reservation and ended up waiting another 45 minutes before being ...

    Go here for lunch sometimes, and dinner occasionally. Food is amazing, staff is on top of everything, and the atmosphere is very warm.

    Great food at OSHA (I believe there are a couple of them in the city). It's got a nice blend of Thai fusion type foods in a hip trendy atmosphere. Prices are reasonable and service has always been good - keep it up!

    34 reviews

    If you're a creeping elitist, your instincts may tell you to steer clear of this pizza restaurant which often has a line out the door. If you snub this spot, you'll only deprive yourself of a damn good pie. There's a reason this place is popular – the pizzas are excellent. And the salads, cocktails, and service is, too. Make ...

    The Cheesecake Factory

    50 reviews

    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, ...

    Huge dim sum restaurant. There are a couple of outlets. The one on Stevenson offers validated underground parking. It's a clean and efficiently run affair. It gets crowded towards noon on the weekend. The shrimp dim sum are tasty. Try the Shanghai dumplings. Order a pot of tea.

    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.

    Absolutely loved this place! They have a great selection of beers as well as cocktails. Their outdoor seating is especially nice, with a down to earth feel. Cash only though - remember to bring some because their ATM charged a $3 fee!

    I just LOVE Brenda's beignets and po'boys so much! The beignets are TO DIE FOR. We ordered the beignet flight, which consisted of 1 of each of the following: Plain, Filled with molten Ghirardelli chocolate, Granny Smith Apple with cinnamon honey butter and Crawfish with cayenne, scallions and cheddar. All 4 for $8. We ate them in that order, starting ...

    This place is tiny and omg amazing. The people who work there are awesomely friendly (I got a high five for spelling my name the same way the girl taking orders did). I got the Napoleon Complex (vegetarian). The raspberry poppyseed French dressing was so awesome, as was the Havarti cheese. We took ours and ate in Dolores Park and ...

    I always stop by the place when I have friends come visit me in SF. It's crowded all the time. So, you need to get there early.
