    Take a seat at the bar. Treat yourself to their rich, juicy burger. Go ahead; add cheese, and pair it with a Vesper Martini. Relax and enjoy as a warm smile washes over you.

    Beignets are light and fluffy. Each order comes with 8 almost perfectly spherical pieces of fried goodness. Served with dark chocolate and Tahitian vanilla dipping sauces.

    Cocktails were awesome wine was too. Get the meat and cheese plate to start. The cheese is on their dessert menu so you just have to ask. It was all so good. Also got the crudo. And filet. Perfect.

    Amazing service. Complimentary amuse bouche, birthday card & dessert, more dessert, and a bag of shortbread cookies to take home! English muffin burger is still one of the best burgers in the city.

    The fagottini was a light and delicious starter. The duck breast had an excellent flavor but could have also done with being cooked differently. It is rather difficult to go wrong with beignets.

    The thick cut bacon might be the best I've had. One portion for two people is totally sufficient.

    Nestled deeply in Presidio Heights, Spruce is a refined neighborhood restaurant. White tablecloths, a fantastic wine list, and great service are hallmarks. Read more

    Their SF Restaurant Week menu was great. The cauliflower velouté was mind blowing and the chocolate mousse was the perfect size - small enough after a large meal but full of taste.

    It's a great spot for a drink at the bar (and a bite if you decide to stay past a drink). The bar is usually pretty full and it has a nice feel to kick off an evening. Read more

    The delectably addicting fries here are made with Kennebecs, i.e. the crème de la crème of potatoes. They've got the best texture, perfect with the juicy burger on their housemade English muffin.

    Wine lovers abound in San Francisco, and the options for indulging in a great local bottle are plenty. Try the food as well--burrata with market cherries, ricotta ravioli, and butter poached lobster. Read more

    The Niman Ranch burger + duck fat fries is worthy of all the hype. Fancy dinner service, but it's casual at lunch: you'll be rubbing elbows with the yummy mummies of Pac Heights. Take-out service too.

    This luxe hotspot offers all kinds of dishes, from classic (boudin blanc) to contemporary (turmeric-poached chicken) to casual (housemade balogna sandwiches). Try the burger, one of the best in town.

    Favorites include burrata, duck breast, and lemon and pistachio tart. Don’t miss the cocktail menu and wines by the glass. – Green Guide Editor

    The wine list is a short novel. The food is worth the high prices, but if you're on a budget there's also a more casual menu including a phenomenal burger.

    Best in SF! Especially after being in the Sierras for days. Bring your heels and sleek cocktail dress-and a good looking guy on your arm to fit right in...

    Sometimes they have Dine About Town lunch specials for $18.95. Small portions sizes but yummy. The brioche and flavored butters are out of this world
