    With a stunning view of the Bay Bridge, stylish design, and an easygoing vibe, the Americano Bar is an ideal spot for an end-of-the-day drink. Read more

    Beautiful views of the Bay, outside seating on the Embarcadero, yummy food and a drink in hand. Sounds like a perfect Friday night at the Americano Restaurant & Bar. Read more

    What looks like a standard ice cream sandwich—an inch of cream set between two butterscotch pecan cookies with a brown sugar-caramel sauce—has a rich maple flavor that turns out comes from a mushroom. Read more

    Start with the grilled peach burrata bruschetta, the pork meatballs, and steak salad. Then get the mushroom-fontina-truffle pizza and burger! Side of spicy fries. Oh yes, it's very bomb-dot-com! :)

    Hour hour 3-6 pm. This place definitely caters to the finance crowd, so don't wear jeans if you want to fit in. Definitely sit out back, if you arrive early enough grab one of the couch benches.

    They're opening up a grill outside and it's a must try! The outdoor chef and bartender are awesome, but not nearly as awesome as their food and drink.

    Seared halibut with fig jam was actually pretty good. For appetizers try the brussel sports and the meatballs. All with your favorite drink of course

    Surprisingly careful, seasonal food for a hotel restaurant. I've never had a bad experience. A good go-to for business drinks/dinner too.

    Had our holiday party here and was pleasantly surprised by the food quality! Great location too. The only negative was the hostess playing games w/ the bar location we had previously reserved.

    Great spot for a fancy drink, especially on an expense account. Outdoor seating is nice when the weather is pleasant.

    Pretty heavy food, even for lunch. Delicious pizza and appetizers, but everything is made with so much oil!

    The indoor-outdoor bar at one of our favorite hotels (Hotel Vitale) draws a packed after-work crowd, particularly on one of SF's rare sunny days.

    Enjoy the ambiance. Food is creative. Quality's a mixed bag, though. At dinner, I liked the asparagus side dish, with egg and a bread crumb crust. Oh, and don't expect much service.

    Long day? Come here for their phenomenal happy hour Saturday through Wednesday from 3-6. We're talking $3 beers, $5 wine and $5 well cocktails... with free antipasti (the olives are superb).

    Excellent breakfast. Spinach and chives omelet, stuffed full of healthy greens. Sourdough bread on the side tasted very nice and freshly baked.

    Not a great HH (there are no deals), but the crowd is "interesting" and on a warm night the view is spectacular.
