I love the food and ambiance of this Samovar location. It's not as scenic as the Yerba Buena location, but easily accessible by the J line in the Castro. Try the Japanese service!

Samovar on Sanchez is a nice place to spend an evening. The tea selection is vast, as would be expected. Be prepared to spend a little bit of money, as the prices are a little high. A pot of tea averages $7-$10.

Both the atmosphere and service are pleasant, with comfortable seating and low light.

This was more than mere tea, it was an experience. The food I agree is overpriced and the portions are tiny, but I have to admit it's very good. I love the atmosphere. My only complaint was the noise. When it's busy, it's way too noisy.

As a reader of countless Citysearch restaurant reviews, I have finally decided to put in my .02$ on Samovar, a genuinely enchanting tea lounge, perfectly suited for a casual romantic occasion. Admittedly, this is my first official

We ate there last night and were blown away by the food and tea pairings. Great service, 6 courses takes quite some time but it was a lovely experience overall. The cuisine was sophisticated and perfect timing from the servers.

I just read the previous poster's posting. I don't know if I agree with that. I have to admit that I'm prejudiced and like Samover a lot (I was one of the people who discovered it, just after they opened). As somebody who has been to many

Pros: Amazing tea selection, Very helpful staff

Don't come into Samovar if you want to grab a cuppa joe and run. They'll think you're speaking an obscure Manhattenese dialect. It's a lounge, and that means relaxation. And while coffee addicts need to get their fix elsewhere, you'd be

I am originally from a country where tea is the most common drink on a daily life. With this background I can tell yo that tea at Samovar is the best. The people running the place and the ambient is also great; one of a kind.
Well done!

I'm a die-hard tea drinker so I'm biased in favor of tea-ists. Why has it taken this city so long to come up with a place serving decent tea?
So, Samovar?

The Samovar guys have done an incredible job renovating the space and I saw a lot

Much more than just a cup of tea, Samovar is the full sensual experience. Where else can one contemplate the comings and goings of a living neighborhood through tall windows; listen to jazz in tune with the minute to minute rhythms of

Samovar is an upscale new hot spot near the Castro in San Francisco. Although currently unmarked with a sign, it carries a savvy New York sense of style with a splash of the Mediterranean in a cafe/lounge setting. Perfect for a romantic
