The food was AMAZING. Every course blew my expectations away and then some. The music was also on point, a combination of feel good trance and remixed indie pop. I had such a great time. The only gripe was that the service took a bit too long.

Food was great service was good. Atmosphere was romantic. Only downside was the proximity of other tables, some what close. Great experience overall. They even accosted the groupon on valentines day.

From Our Editors

Circa's menus center around shareable small plates and high-end meats in decadent arrangements: Niman Ranch beef is clasped by bacon, cheese, and tarragon-dijon mayo in a pair of sliders, while organic chicken breast basks in creamy risotto. Mediterranean accents surface unpredictably throughout entrees in the form of za'atar seasoning, almonds, and figs. Michael Bauer of the San Francisco Chronicle found plenty to praise at the lounge's 2006 opening, including "thoughtful desserts" served by waitstaff who "seem to enjoy their jobs" and an atmosphere that "makes diners feel as if they're relaxing in a luxurious cocoon." Designer Michael Brennan, of Cortez and La Table fame, is behind the latter. His work finds the dining room enfolded by a cocoa-colored design scheme and studded with the floral images of Neil Seth Levine, chosen for their evocation of both the stark lines of Ansel Adams and the fever dreams of Georgia O’Keeffe.

San Francisco Restaurant Guide

San Francisco takes pride in its foodie culture, offering some of the freshest and finest dining in the country. Options are limitless, here. From tuna tartare in Nob Hill to giant burritos in the Mission, this city has no problem serving up tasty world-class fare from practically any cuisine imaginable. Of particular note, is the prevalance of talented local chefs who offer food choices that are constantly evolving the way people think about this city's unique food scene.

Chef Craig Stoll is passionate about Italian food, and his passion becomes clear at Delfina. This Mission restaurant recently entered its tenth year of service, and customers keep coming back for Stoll's twist on traditional dishes. Stoll combines classic dishes with a local twist, creating imaginative dishes like buttermilk panna cotta and an olive and bean salad featuring freshly roasted calamari on top.

Owner and chef Dennis Leary is the driving force behind Canteen, a restaurant devoted to casual California cuisine. The prix-fixe dinner offered twice a week gives diners the chance to sample some of the best dishes on the menu, but a la carte options are also available several days a week. The fixed-price menu changes every month depending on what Leary finds appetizing. Past dishes have included yellowtail with a potato crust and a salad featuring spice-crusted lamb.

Dining in San Francisco has never looked or tasted as good as it does at Range. This Valencia Street staple was the brainchild of Phil West, who brings his New American style to every dish on the menu. West believes in creating classic comfort food with an unexpected twist. The split pea soup with chives sprinkled over the top and a dollop of sour cream is almost as delicious as the pork dish served with greens and hominy.

With its old-school diner feel, Swan Oyster Depot packs in diners every night of the week. Every meal comes with a free show, courtesy of the chefs tossing food around and cooking dishes just a few inches from diners. This small oyster bar serves fresh seafood the way people want: fast, simple and delicious. The long line out the door shows why this is one of the top San Francisco restaurants.

Classic dishes, eclectic options and new chefs constantly change the landscape of the San Francisco food scene. These restaurants make eating out a special and exciting adventure.
