1. Tadich Grill

Located at Front Street / Battery Street (in other words, the Financial District), Tadich Grill has been a household name in the bay area for years. This American seafood restaurant is iconic San Francisco class, and is definitely a go-to no matter if you are a first-time visitor or SF native. In fact, it has been labeled as one of the oldest restaurants in the San Francisco area.

It does tend to be pricey, with meals ranging about $31 to $60 per plate (each person must spend at least $11.50). Because it does serve the freshest of the fresh seafood, the menu does change daily. We recommend that, because of its reputation and history, it does get booked fast so be sure to put in a reservation beforehand.

The ambiance is comfortable, with long, huge countertops and old-vintage booths. The setting overall is fun yet intimate. (And, for all of you bread lovers, know that Tadich Grill does provide complimentary sour dough.)

2. La Taqueria

La Taqueria is a quintessential Mexican restauarant located in San Fracisco’s Mission District. It is known for their burritos—especially the carne asada super burrito. Know that it does become crowded easily so, especially around lunch and dinner, so you may have to stand in a line for a few minute before ordering. Prices are reasonable and dress attire is casual. Please know though that La Taqueria is a cash-only business; if you only bring your credit or debit, you may need to stop off at the ATM.

When Should You Go?

3. The House

Located in the North Beach/ Telegraph Hill area of San Francisco, The House is an Asian Fusion restaurant you are sure to love. Try the fried garlic ribeye steak and garlic noodles. Since the restaurant is fairly small—with roughly only 10 to 15 tables—you most likely will need to book a reservation. The restaurant is pricey, with plates being anywhere from $31 to $60. Overall, this restaurant is a gem—the menu is delicious but be sure to ask about the specials (which are not on the menu).

When Should You Go?

You should check out The House if you are in the mood for Asian-fusion cuisine with an American twist. This is a great place to go with family or friends, or to bring a date. You may want to call in advance if you want to bring in a large party. As mentioned, The House is a fairly small restaurant with limited seating capacity. That aside, you are sure to enjoy the cuisine and dining atmosphere.

4. Sotto Mare Oysteria & Seafood

This Italian seafood restaurant is located around Columbus Ave & Stockton Street I nthe North Beach and Telegraph Hill area of San Francisco. As the name suggests, it is known for its seafood—not to mention its rich flavors.

Overall the Sotto Mare Oysteria & Seafood is small yet unassuming in the heart of North Beach (otherwise known as Little Italy). You can not only experience great Italian cooking but get a glimpse into the Italian culture.

Be sure to make your reservation in advance, as the small restaurant is sure to fill up fast. While prices are on the expensive side, the portions are huge—large enough for a $45-dollar meal to be shared around a party of three.

You can go in for a lovely dinner or stop by at the lunch hour with coworkers. No matter when you visit, you are bound to enjoy the Italian cuisine.

5. Bi-Rite Creamery

While not a San Francisco restaurant per se, Bi-Rite Creamery needs to be on the list for one reason only—its unique and rich flavors of ice cream. It is a relatively smaller creamery, with a baked goods window attached. You can choose from a variety of ice cream flavors, from the unique (such as lavender and banana) to some classics (like cookie dough).

When Should You Go?

Bi-Rite Creamery should be on anyone’s list after a rich lunch or dinner. It gives ice cream lovers that sweet tooth fix while also providing a new experience—c’mon, how many people have tried lavender ice cream?
