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 ...

    My favorite seafood restaurant in San Francisco. Incredible view of the Bay and the Oakland Bay Bridge. Nothing better than a great meal while watching ships pass right in front of your table.

    It's hard to get a reservation and if you walk in you will have to wait. But the food is so good, it's worth it. Try the bone marrow pizza.

    The Tonga Room

    I don't think this will become a regular drinking place on my list, but it's a place everyone has to visit once. Definitely a staple of SF culture. Highly recommend getting the lava bowl, just be careful!

    R & G Lounge

    28 reviews

    I suppose that if I were to recommend a restaurant in Chinatown, it'd be R&G Lounge. This would be based on two factors: 1) The other restaurants in the neighborhood are just okay and 2) That salt and pepper crab. Now, don't think that this will be a cheap meal because you're in Chinatown and not in the Financial District. ...

    Very good tacos in a cool neighborhood. Be sure to call before you go as we found some of the posted hours to be incorrect online.

    One of the best restaurants in the city. It may cost more than Burger King, but I always find their food to be top notch. Try some of their signature cocktails downstairs before your meal. I find myself trying to meet people in the downstairs lounge here every chance I get....and I've never left disappointed. They have a steak dish ...

    MAMA MIA GOOD. My tummy is so very happy and delighted to meet you, Mr. Short Rib Hash. And you, too, Mr. Pancake. Don't forget Ms. Mimosa. What better way to be greeted than "Would you like juice or champagne?" upon arrival. I can totally handle that. Deliciously fried eggs topped with flavorful shortrib on a Saturday morning is almost ...

    An elegant restaurant with lovely old-style decor and superb food. I've only eaten lunch here, which is truly a great dining experience and a bit more affordable.

    I like this place, but I'm also a litlle conflicted. Thankfully we got here a little early, but still couldn't get a booth, so we sat at bar/counter area. But the line outside formed quick, and even though I enjoyed the food I would not wait in a line that long for it. As for the cuisine, it sits right ...

    I have been coming to the Buena Vista as long as I have lived in the Bay Area. This is a place that I have taken out-of-town friends and my parents. I've sat at the bar and in the restaurant and have always enjoyed the touristy energy and the cable car and water view out the window. Gayle and I ...

    Delicious crispy ahi tuna tacos and garlic fries. That's all :) It's in the Ferry Building, so definitely take the time to walk around the building to shop and along the water outside too!

    The House

    2.18 mi from Alcatraz Island

    I really liked this place- its asian fusion. I loved the dish I ordered- the sea bass. It was cooked perfectly and it was a good sized portion. You have to make a reservation because the place gets very crowded! I will go back in the hear future!

    dropped in on a sunday afternoon for a quick lunch. this is on a side street in North Beach with pretty barren indoor decor. which means, of course, that it's all about the food! order up! 1 taco order comes with 2 tacos for about $8-9 bucks, not super cheap, but the quality is really good. i'm not a mexican ...

    The little appetizers we got were really delish! I absolutely loved the sangria! It didn't have as strong of a hint of alcohol as much as other sangria's I've had. I like that the bar area has floor to ceiling windows.

    Monk's Kettle

    4.32 mi from Alcatraz Island

    Another great beer location in the City, but overall was a little too bougie for me. Mostly Belgians and sours on tap, and an amazing bottle selection that was about five pages long! Definitely a little pricey, even though they have some hard to find beers, you can find a lot of these at City Beer or Toronado for a ...

    Best German food on the west coast - Suppenkuche is one of my favorite restaurants. The beer list is amazing, letting you sample some of the finest beers from across Europe. Food is classic German - sausages and spaetzle are amazing. Seating is at long tables, often shared with others, so not a great spot if you are looking for ...

    One of the best Luxury boutique hotel I've ever stayed. We were surrounded by luxury, Elegant accommodations. This is a great find of a cute boutique hotel in San Francisco area. San Bruno (a quiet town) and only about 15 minutes from Downtown San Francisco. The hotel is 5 years new and it is own by a local resident of ...

    I'm glad that I have finally gotten a chance to try the food at State Bird Provisions. I live right across the street and alway see a long line even before they open. It has been on my list of places to try and last week I finally got the opportunity. Reservations a hard to come by. However if you ...

    For some reason, I prefer Blue Bottle to Ritual coffee, but Ritual is definitely a solid spot! They have a variety of roasts, with a plethora of them hailing from south America. This is a fun spot to just relax and read a book in/browse the web..seems like a lot of the regulars who come here bring their notebooks! Their ...
