Oakland Zoo

9777 Golf Links Road, Oakland, CA 94605-4925
18 reviews

Although it's not the biggest zoo, it's quite a well designed one. There's lots of green open space for the kids to run about /picnic. And they put considerable effort in the landscaping. It's nice and green for the tigers...and savannah like for the elephants and giraffes. Besides walking around to view the animals, you can also get onto a ...

    Chaya Brasserie

    132 The Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA 94105
    13.68 mi from Oakland Zoo
    36 reviews

    Hands down, best happy hour and dessert! Usually most places would not have happy hour on the weekend but Chaya does! My food buddy and I ordered: - seared day boat sea scallops = scallop cooked to standard and nicely done risotto. - filet mignon rossini = perfect medium meat and tasty sauce. - corn soup = good combination of ...

    Chez Panisse

    Request to walk into the kitchen, if you can. Impeccable! It's the warmest restaurant kitchen I've ever seen.

    Tony's Pizza Napoletana

    1570 Stockton Street, San Francisco, CA 94133
    14.69 mi from Oakland Zoo
    33 reviews

    Tony's Pizza lives up its reputation as being a world-class pizza joint. They have five different pizza ovens (wood fired, coal, gas, etc) to make all the different styles appropriately. I've been going since they first opened and the quality is consistently top notch. There is always a long wait, so visit the slice house next door if you're pressed ...

    Blue Bottle Coffee - Ferry Building

    1 Ferry Building Shop #7, San Francisco, CA 94111
    13.81 mi from Oakland Zoo
    35 reviews

    One of the best cappuccinos in the city. Usually you have to wait in line, and there are no seats, but you can take your coffee outside and sit on a bench overlooking the water while you caffeinate. The line is always long but moves really fast.

    Humphry Slocombe

    2790 Harrison St., San Francisco, CA 94110
    14.46 mi from Oakland Zoo

    Humphry Slocombe is a bit of a San Francisco institution. For fans of off-beat ice cream flavors, this place is a must. I tend to go sample crazy when I'm there and, really, it's hard to limit yourself when your faced with flavors like "Jesus Juice" (red wine and coke), olive oil, or my favorite Secret Breakfast (bourbon and cornflakes. ...

    28 reviews

    El Farolito was recently named one of the best Burritos in America by the one and only Nate Silver, the same guy who predicted Obama's 2012 win. Silver's prediction lives up to its billing here, as I ate the Super Burrito. For just $7.25 or so, you get a huge burrito, a ton of flavor, and the definite feeling that ...

    This is one of my favorite places to enjoy dim sum on the weekends. I think they arguably have the best shanghai dumplings in the city, and the rest of their menu is fantastic as well.

    Little Star Pizza

    15.98 mi from Oakland Zoo
    33 reviews

    It is impossible to over-emphasize the deliciousness of Little Star Pizza. In fact, this pizza is so incredible, so different, so spectacularly superlative to any other pizza, that it shouldn't be called pizza at all. The savory pies made by this Divisadero outpost (and its sibling in the Mission) are built upon a thin cornmeal and then piled high - ...

    Oysters!!!! I'm going to cry tears of happiness for how mouthwatering these oysters are! They ran out of the ones we wanted by midday! The waiter suggested us other options. They were like heaven with ear slurp! I'm coming back again and again!

    Zuni Cafe

    32 reviews

    I liked Zuni's Steamboat oysters more than their famous 1-hour chicken. Seriously, that $2.50 oyster was the highlight of my meal. It reminded me of the delicious, golden, fatty nuggets you find inside crabs. For one reason or another, I was not that impressed with the flavor of the chicken meat. Yes, the meat was moist, juicy, and had some ...

    This place has a lot of hype around it. Maybe my expectations were too high. I liked it but was not blown away. It's a hip, lively atmosphere. The Cesar salad was really good. The thin crust, Italian style pizza was tasty, but not quite as unique as a delfina or a little star. Service was very good. Book ahead ...

    UPDATE (4/23) Muka is now a cafe (with free Wi-Fi), a wine bar, and a place to get amazing sandwiches and salads ($7 and $6 respectively) with flavors from around the world. Try the quinoa salad or the ham katsu sandwich, served on Acme bread. The Japanese roast beef sandwich is to die for. So good. The prices are really ...

    Fun place for Peruvian cuisine and drinks with a waterfront view! Come for happy hour for really well-priced cocktails. The entrees weren't memorable. The dessert mousse, however, was. The Capitan cocktail was my favorite. The final price was not. Service was friendly, albeit a bit forgetful on several occasions. They also said they couldn't make custom cocktails that strayed too ...

    Really impressed with the quality of ingredients and execution of the dishes. Simple, elegant and well thought out. If we lived in SF I feel this would be one of our go-to places for date night.

    Too pretentious to be casual, but not quite striking enough to be a special occasion restaurant, this Hayes Valley restaurant and bar isn’t quite right for dinner. But it’s perfect for a high-heels-and-make-up cocktail hour (due in part to a stellar cocktail selection and a pared-down bar menu). Try the Ginger Rogers, a classic concoction of gin, mint, lemon and ...
