    Need a chill spot for a drink after work? This 16-year-old handcrafted cocktail pioneer hidden off of Broadway 
caters to an old-timey crowd (no TVs here). Their Pimms cup is a neighborhood favorite. Read more

    If nothing on the menu suits your fancy, all of the bartenders have extensive mixology backgrounds and can create a new drink for you…though it’s hard to ignore a freshly made Pimm’s cup. Read more

    It's all about the brunch. The hashbrowns are fantastic, like a gourmet McDonalds hash brown (don't lie and tell me you don't have a nostalgic taste for those) and the mushroom omelet is perfection.

    Scott Baird and Aaron Smith aren't fucking around with the drink menu, which features both adventurous concoctions and creative takes on classics. We recommend the Yellow Bicycle. Read more

    Very trendy and in an aly way that is hard to find. Drinks are creative and the liqour selection is way beyond amazing and extensive. The bartenders are friendly and you should have The Blue Moon Redu

 Old Fashioned stays close to the first recorded recipe.

    Super busy on weekends, more accessible during late nights and weekdays. Cocktails are imaginative and bartenders are super knowledgeable. Kitchen is open late with always delicious food.

    15 Romolo is serving the best bar food in town (bar category, not restaurant-bar category). And of course, the drinks are among the city's elite. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    The cocktails are delicious, just ask your waitress or bartender to suprise you; the food is equally yummy, cheap by comparison to other places; get the tempura avocado or the burger dirty south style

    Hands down this is one of the best beverage lists in the country. The cocktails are impeccable (Imperial Suckerpunch, The Firebird, and the Knock Knock were our top picks).

    First of all I don't like chicken. However the baricuas wings are the shit they are adorned with coconut, chili, lime and cilantro. Double yum!! Plus the cocktail program is fantaboulos!

    The ever-changing cocktail and brunch menu keeps things interesting.. If you're there for brunch, make sure you get the waffle shots! Definitely one of SF's hidden gems.

    If you show up at 15 Romolo between 5:30 and 6:30 New Year's Eve, I'll buy you one of their excellent Sazeracs, they have a good menu also.

    Cute cocktail bar. Also a good spot for brunch. Look for the Romolo street sign and walk up the hill to find this hidden spot.

    Hidden gem in a bit so nice part of town. They will seat you which keeps the crowds down. Great service too.

    Tucked in an alley behind Stripper Row, 15 Romolo is a quiet, nondescript speakeasy that serves light, local foods with strong, tasty cocktails.

    Best brunch in North Beach!!! The skillet hash is delicious! And the punch is worth coming back for every time! Punch Drunk Brunch FTW!

    Totally off the beaten path and completely worth it. Delicious and reasonably priced artisanal cocktails and food--get the Pimm's Cup!

    Had a sweet gale ale, a rare beer brewed with an herb that went out of style in the 16th century. Reputed to have stimulating effects other beers don't...

    If you don't know what you want, ask the bartender what should go with your favorite flavor (mine is brandied cherries). These kids make good drinks.
  • Graham S.
    Great cocktails. Don't be afraid to order food, too. You won't be disappointed!
  • Jennifer S.
    They have pitchers of Pimm's cup and Sangria for happy hour. We really liked the grilled octopus at dinner.

    Gem of a bar – dark and classy – go on a bustling Friday or a quiet Monday to sip their signature drink Track 42 and catch up with an old friend over some tapas.

    It can be kinda a shitshow, but they have a very good cocktail menu and efficient service, which makes up for it.

    This may be minimally helpful, but there's an Icelandic beer on the menu that's relatively cheap and very good -- worth ordering

    I love this neighborhood gem. Great, low price brunch. The pork belly skillet and housemade sangria are delicious.
  • Grantland C.
    Don't come close to closing. At 1:30 they'll tell you you can stay until you finish your drinks and at 1:40 they'll swing by and pour out your drinks because fuck you.

    Nice cocktail bar with knowledgable bartenders. Order a Last Word made with Fernet, you'll love it.

    Try the croque madame for brunch. Or get the bone marrow fritters and add them into a yo mama burger.

    The fried chicken sandwich was on another level. Get it with no pickles and spinach and you'll want another when done!

    The pulled pork here is amazing. Glazed in fatty goodness. The owner is from Texas so this is no surprise.

    We met Jake the chef...dude cooks some mean burgers. We had the 'dirty burger'...i recommend it highly (along with the sangria!)

    The jukebox promises 7 plays for $2, but have me only 5. Also, did you know that "jukebox" is the highest scoring word with which one can open a game of Scrabble?

    Don't forget to check the specials board for some great drink ideas. Or just get the Pimm's Cup.

    A fantastic respite in an otherwise tumultuous stretch of Broadway. The food is as good as the delicious cocktails!

    15 Romolo has the nicest ambience. Mellow, cozy but not claustrophobic like those casual chic bars on the east coast.

    The veggie burgers here are insanely good, even if you're a carnivore. (Oh yeah and they make good cocktails.)

    Get the peanut butter burger. "Yo mama style". Add bacon. Don't add cheese. Trust me.

    It's a little out of the way, but this is a chilled place on weekdays, and a fun bar on weekends. Just another decent bar.
