    If you come for dinner before it turns into a club, you don't have to pay the cover! Just make sure to get your hand stamped if you step out.

    Sweet cocktails and fun for dancing. The bathroom lines get backed up frequently though.

    Senegalese restaurant by day, dance spot by night, you don't have to dress up to grind to the reggaeton, Latin and world beats, but you do have to try Baobab's signature hibiscus and ginger drinks. Read more

    Try the fried bananas and the infusion rum.. Both light sweet with a great vibrant taste. Feels like you're in the Caribbean!

    Dibi was great. Lamb with an onion mustard sauce. If it sounds good, you'll probably like it.

    Come here for the delicious entrees, unpretentious vibe, and especially the live DJ after 9:30. Listening to some chill Afro jazz right now…

    Although not a "salsa joint" - they play do play a wide mix of world beats including salsa, bachata, reggae, African and more. They serve yummy Senegalese too. Worth checking out.

    The Yassa (marinated onions in a lemon garlic mustard sauce) with tilapia and couscous is literally one of my favorite things to eat in San Francisco. Get a hibiscus margarita to go with it.

    Great dairy free options!! Dishes with coconut milk instead of cream... mmmmm.

    Brittany Powell · August 2, 2010
  • Anne S.

    For brunch eat outside if weather permits - the DJ plays the music waaaayyy too loudly. And bring cash-they don't take plastic. The French toast is positively scrumptious.
