    Amazing staff, fancy cocktails, good food and a late night kitchen make Oola pure radness. I've not come here on a peak night and I imagine it can get quite busy. Weekday nights, however... pure magic.

    Came here today for Sil's birthday, based on positive word of mouth. Located on Folsom, the restaurant is a nice, upscale Americano restaurant. The interior is very dark, which makes reading the menu a bit hard, but then again, who cares! As long as the food is good, that's all that matters! From what we heard, the ribs and duck confit were the best. What our party tried: Slow Cooked Confit of Duck, Bacon-Wrapped Monk Fish, Baby Back Ribs, and Grilled Mahi Mahi & Fennel Confit.

    Ambiance: Dark, Mysterious, & Warm
    Service: Excellent
    Bread: endless supply
    Portions: Small
    Food: Tasty, Delicious, & Savory
    Bar: Full Bar
    Price: $$

    Come here if you're looking to try some good Americano cuisine! but be warned that the portions are small. Great for groups.

    Nice ambiance and music. Came here during happy hour. The $1.50/oyster on their happy hour menu is what brought me to try this place. It's nicely locate just an easy walk from the Metreon and Moscone Center.

    Dining/going out in the San Francisco can be a real pain in the butt. Finding a legal parking spot is both an art and a sport. Driving around the block looking for any sign of movement is an exhausting chore. This is especially sucky when you are starving and already late for your 7:30 reservation.

    When dining at Oola parking is never an issue, the problem here is what to order off the menu. The ribs are a no brainer. I am not a rib person but this dish brings me to my knees they are that good. The optimum way to dine here is with a large group of six or more so you can share and steal bites off your friends. I see you eyeing my truffle fries.

    Another bonus is the bar which is one of the best in the city.

    came here with a friend about 3 yrs ago. the most memorable thing about the dinner was the 20 foot high monstrous front door. it's pretty stunning. the inside was nice, though somewhat dimly lit. we were in a booth. the plates were all generally pretty tasty. i think the pork belly stood out as being especially tender and tasty. the plate size is pretty small though for high teens and $20s. i was a tad hungry after dinner, which is never good. haven't been back, though may give it another try sometime.

    Great date spot in SOMA! The dimly lit intimate loft space makes you look oo-so dreamy. The potato wrapped scallops are just as amazing as their famous ribs and the grilled chicken is drenched in this delicious marinade. For dessert, share the orange chocolate chip brulee. The little pieces of chocolate on top just melt in your mouth.
