Description of Restaurant:

If you like an intimate space with a bar, baby grand piano, a fireplace, and most of all great food, then this is your destination in San Francisco. A great location close to the Opera House and all their venues. Also, ideal after first seating of guests who are going to a performance.

Have a cocktail at the small bar; watch the fire; listen to the piano, and unwind before dinner.
