Whenever I'm in San Francisco I go there at least once. I went there for the first time 5 years ago and I keep coming back.
It's always just fantastic. The food, the service, the ambiance, everything. I've always had a wonderful experience

This is a great restaurant to experience a night in a far away land. The food is over the top tasty. The drinks are superb. Attentive wait staff. Large tables, little away spots for groups and large places for events.

I've taken clients from around the world to dinner here....never fails to impress. I think its proabably the atmosphere/ decor that does the trick everytime. Owned by actor Don Johnson (Miami Vice) so the place looks like a movie set. Oh and the food is good too.

For the most part this is a good restaurant. The prices are little high and they don't give the biggest portions but for what we did get the taste was really good.

Watch out diners! The waiter added on extra portions of appitizers, (not informing us of course.) And when we questioned the check, he said "well you ate it!" then stormed off and slammed the check book on my chair. The manager was worse.
