    Extraordinary Desserts - Balboa Park

    76 reviews

    Hands down the best desserts in the USA. It's pricy but well worth it. Every day has something different, so just ask the servers what they like the best and they'll point you in the right direction!

    Don Day

    8 reviews

    This was the only KBBQ in L.A. that rated 4.5 stars at the time we dined here. After a long day in the Convention Center, we were very hungry afterward, picked this place after we saw a good review, and were looking for a good KBBQ Feast. [Location] - Located in a less popular area of K-Town, share same plaza ...

    La Fondue - Saratoga

    59 reviews

    Delish mix of fondues and amazing friendly staff. A must try experience if you haven't. Dipping meat veggies and bread into fine ingrediants is what the gods do.

    Gary Danko

    43 reviews

    It is about time I write a review for Gary Danko. A well deserved five stars restaurant. It does live up to its hype! I had the pleasure of coming here for my birthday during a nice cold evening. We ordered: - Quail Stuffed with Foie Gras, Mushroom and Quinoa, Braised Artichokes, Peas, Prosciutto and Olive Butter. ( Quail and ...

    Off the Grid - Fort Mason

    40 reviews

    This place is awesome on a Friday evening starting at 5pm. Varieties of food trucks with great ambiance. The location is wonderful because you can walk around and even see the Golden Gate Bridge. Some of the food trucks that we try: - Onigilly = overpriced and was super salty. It is $3 for one small roll. - Koja Kitchen ...

    Pappy & Harriet's Pioneertown Palace

    13 reviews

    One of my all time favorite places on the planet also happens to be one of the few spots I know where I can roll in filthy, just off the trail, and still feel totally comfortable drinking a cold beer and hitting the dance floor. Not that I generally take that approach. But it's nice to know I could. Pappy ...

    Carmela Ice Cream

    12 reviews

    I'm just going to put this out there - I don't like icecream. Crazy, I know. But I'm also lactose intolerant so that makes up for half of it. When there is an icecream that I will eat, you know it's gotta be something special. That's Carmela. They don't have the willy nilly flavors that you can get at grocery ...

    La Folie

    14 reviews

    I am positive that I would not forget my fine dine experienced at La Folie when my guy credit card was not able to scanned through the machine. He had to ran across the street to use the ATM machine to withdrawal the money. Oh boy, that sure broke a sweat out of him. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we ...

    Joshua Tree Saloon

    6 reviews

    As a general rule, whenever I get wind of anything along the lines of an Old Western town, saloon, or roadside hideaway, I make a point of heading that way. I suppose that's where I assume I'll find my kind of people, or at least sign pointing me the right direction. This spot is that kind of place. Located at ...

    Chambers Eat + Drink

    24 reviews

    Another great brunch spot to eat if you are in the Tenderloin area. This place is so classy, trendy, and definitely a hipster alert place. Love their food, their drinks, and definitely their friendly staff. Order a bunch of breakfast food, share, and enjoy! I would recommend this place to anyone and you can impress your out of town friends ...

    Mission Chinese Food

    20 reviews

    Definitely lives up to the hype. I am glad I finally got to try this place, and it's good! We had the squid ink noodles, the cod fried rice, and the eel roll. All very tasty. All things I'd order again. And, I still need to try the pork belly and the duck and a bunch of other things too. ...

    Whale City Bakery Bar & Grill

    Not sure if I deserve a slice of Olallieberry pie after a short easy breezy hike. If I can even consider it a hike at all. Two slices of Olallieberry pie with one scoop of ice cream, hot green tea and a glass of milk is quite divine. Monster got a whole Olallieberry pie to-go which I know I will ...

    La Taqueria

    24 reviews

    Supposedly the best burritos around. My chicken burrito was great! And they don't put rice in their burritos which was different but still yummy. It gets pretty crowded so make sure to miss the lunch rush

    The Griddle Cafe

    30 reviews

    Not much too add after 30 reviewers have previously posted. Street parking, with a few stalls outback in the alley. Portions are ginormous and prices are fantastic. I just wanted to bump bump bump!

Don’t believe me? Try to get reservations at Chez Panisse, The Slanted Door or, Gary Danko. My friend Adam has great ...
