    Located in the heart of the financial district. RN74 is by far a must dine at experience when visiting SF. The tempura battered mushrooms are earthy and light. Perfect to dip into the garlic aioli.

    This is my favorite restaurant in San Francisco. Great atmosphere, incredible chef/food/drinks, upscale bar snacks, awesome interior design, large bar and dining room, very cool wait staff. Love it.

    I'm french, and I can say it is a really good french restaurant! Try the chicken, it is just perfect! The Smoke bone marrow is really good also. Everything I've tried is good! Hard to choose!

    Holy mother of **** the Filet steak frites is AMAZING. I ate every last bite and was sad that it was over. The bernaise sauce ties the whole meal together. Do yourself a favor and enjoy this meal!!

    One of the coolest restaurants I have ever been to. The wine specials alternate on a train style board, the decor is chic, and the food is simple yet excellent. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    With a market list of 100 bottles under $100, one of foremost bottle lists and glass pours of rare wines, plus tight cocktails, this has become a nexus for winemakers and wine lovers alike.

    They serve great French food and have an amazing wine selection but I feel their prices should be $8-$10 lower on every item to keep price in balance with what they offer.

    The Michael Mina restaurant that always impresses me. French bistro with a love for seafood and a wine sign like grand central station.

    Everything is crazy good, but the French crullers are unlike any cruller I've ever had: hot and fresh, they're practically creamy on the inside.

    Awesome team of sommeliers has put together an impressive wine list that's strong in Burgundy and Champagne. Large by the glass selection. Daily closeout deals posted on a Euro-style train schedule.

    The lounge always has a very hip ambience. Their drinks vary in price but not in quality; they're all great! Their water is to die for!

    For wine, try Ferme St Martin's '08 Ventoux ('sommelier select'), a grenache-based wine--offers good fruit-earth balance (from higher altitude/cooler climate, so has a slightly lighter bodied profile)
