Riding a Cable Car

San Francisco
202 reviews

So much fun but a bit scaring! You have to experience the cable car ride when you're in SF. You also have to hang onto the outside poles for the real deal.

    The Cheesecake Factory

    51 reviews

    Hmmmm. I am soooo not a lover of any chain restaurant. As hard as I try to like Cheesecake Factory, I still find myself conflicted. I can tell you that it is noisy and there is too much food on the plates. It is just TOO MUCH. hat I do like is that the service is always quick, the bartenders ...

    Dottie's True Blue Cafe

    0.25 mi from Riding a Cable Car

    A few weeks ago I was looking for an apartment in San Francisco. My mom and I decided to get some breakfast before we started looking at places. We ended up at Dottie's because of the great Yelp Reviews. Service: The service was great. Everyone was super friendly and attentive. We were quickly seated upon arrival, drinks were quickly refilled, ...

    It takes a lot for me to rave about Mexican food, but Tropisueno serves up some really great, authentic cuisine - plus it was really close to my old work, and super convenient for happy hour. Oh yeah - their happy hour? Really (really) strong margaritas is their signature libation, and they are not for the faint of heart (or ...

    Super Duper Burger

    0.25 mi from Riding a Cable Car
    19 reviews

    Super Duper burgers are the best fast food style burgers in SF! In-N-Out doesn't even compare. Super Duper is probably closest to being SF's version of Shake Shack. The burgers are made with Niman Ranch all natural beef which is ground fresh daily. Their milkshakes and cones are made with organic Straus cream from Petaluma, their pies and cookies for ...

    We went searching for ramen and udon on a brisk day. We were not disappointed. This place is small but it was worth the short wait. We sat at the sushi bar and were able to order from the full menu. I had the BBQ pork ramen (spicy option), miso flavored and it was delicious.

    Burger Bar

    0.18 mi from Riding a Cable Car
    19 reviews

    Burger Bar is a burger joint from a gourmet chef (Hubert Keller) at gourmet prices (~$20 a burger) that serves painfully-mediocre food. On the list of well-known, superstar chefs, Hubert Keller has always been the one that I always scratch my head about -- I thought Fleur de Lys was all presentation with mediocre taste. But a burger joint shouldn't ...

    This place is absolutely magical. Hiding down in a dodgy area of town, behind a very anonymous facade, you find this gem of soul food and cocktails in old jars. The pulled pork is to die for and the service is great!

    Amber India Restaurant

    12 reviews

    Fun modern atmosphere, we had the lunch buffet which had a huge selection! What they had that day was Northern Indian themed but with some creative american fusion options. American curried corn in a shell, goat curry ?! Very close to Union square-- 20 minute line for the buffet the day we were there but worth the wait.

    Jasper's Corner Tap & Kitchen

    The food here was unexpectedly good, with plenty of great beers on tap. I was actually here for a wedding reception and they did an amazing job with the food, but also turning the tiny space into quite the dance floor!

    I have come hear many times for lunch but the only thing I will ever order is the AMAZING Lobster Club Sandwich. I'm a huge fan of Lobster but it is rare to find a sandwich like this and of it's caliber in the Bay Area. Sure it is pricey but you get alot of sandwich and a huge amount ...

    Bluestem Brasserie

    0.17 mi from Riding a Cable Car
    10 reviews

    The space is really nice, with an open modern styling with a front lounge then bar on the right, and a good sized dining area to the left. There is an elegant, airy feel, but simple design elements. Upstairs is more dining, and an outdoor patio dining area overlooking Market Street, with necessary heat lamps for the cold evenings in ...

    Lori's Diner

    This review isn't for Lori's Diner itself but rather for "Beer Zone," the bar in the same building that offers hundreds of beer (about 52 of them being on tap). I'm not sure how long this business is expected to last, as they were just renewed for another few months, but I feel it's worth mentioning as it's pretty much ...

    Fifth Floor

    0.13 mi from Riding a Cable Car
    9 reviews

    Intriguing start, strong development and surprisingly weak finish. Fifth floor left me feeling I have just watched a movie that rushed to a terribly ending. I like the appetizers and entrees but the desserts were disappointing. I took 3 bites off their 'Dessert: By Association" to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Wasn't it just 2 tiny pieces of sponge cake ...

    The shop is located inside the Metreon. I got the Strawberry Cheesecake cupcake and it was yummy! The cake itself is not too dense and the frosting is not too sweet.

    Straits Restaurant - Santana Row

    0.09 mi from Riding a Cable Car

    I have come to explore and like this place quite a bit. Straits is best described as Asian Fusion. I've had the noodles here and they are delicious. It kind of feels like a bit of New York -- something really trendy -- in the middle of San Jose.

    Came here once with my former roomie while walking downtown after school one day. The pizza was pretty good. Pretty big size and you would go downstairs to eat cause all the tables and chairs are downstairs.

    Steaks cooked to perfection. Nice ambience and great location inside of the Westin St. Francis hotel right on the Union Square. It's a great place to have an awesome food and go for a romantic walk after dinner.
