    One of my favorite American bar and grills. Yes it's part of a chain, but the food and service are excellent. The Western burger is one if my top five burgers ever.

    What a ambiance, steak and wine. You must order your steak medium or medium-well because it could be like not cooked if you want medium rare. Also you must give a shot for brownie.

    A frothy, icy, photogenic blend comes together at Hillstone Embarcadero in San Francisco with its margarita, beautifully completed with a little salt on the rim. Read more

    The burguer is awesome! It tasted like a “gourmet BigMac” for me! The artichokes are also incredible! I will be back for sure!

    Right across the street from the original Heat offices, this place has history! This is a great place for 5-7 friends to catch up. Their specialty is RIBS! Don’t be afraid, they’re delicious.

    Great vibe right by the water. Beautiful interior but most importantly, food is amazing. Must get the Hawaiian ribeye. Ask me about it on Twitter - @Greenbaumer

    Everything we had was absolutely delicious. The French dip melted in your mouth and the smoked salmon appetizer was the best I've ever had. Is on our list of favs now.

    Best ribs in town. Ribs not your thing? The Hawaiian ribeye steak is out if this world. Formally called Houston's, (same company) Hillstone is always consistently good with curious wait staff.

    Their wedge salad is incredible - super fresh tasting tomatoes and roasted beets with crumbled Gorgonzola. Desserts are tasty as well, with their chocolate coming from TCHO just across the street.

    One of my fav restaurants in SF. No corkage fee, delicious meals, live music every night. Pork Chop is one of the best I've had!

    A friend took me to lunch here and I loved it. The Reubenesque Sandwish was simply delicious. I said I was just going to eat half but ended up gobbling the whole thing. No corkage fee! How cool is tha

    Entire menu is excellent. Ambience is great. It's where I eat when I want to feel fancy, but not too fancy.

    Pleasant Embarcadero location, delicious burgers and solid jazz playlist but the service tried too hard and was rushed.

    Service is a gold standard. Food is great as well. Feels like you're the cool person in Chicago circa 1971.

    The prime rib is flavorful but gets cold too easily. Can’t go wrong with the chicken, though.

    Spinach & artichoke dip, hot fudge sundae. They serve Pimm's but you have to make sure to ask for a long one. Kid friendly, but with a grown up feel.
