It a city loaded with noisy party restaurants, it's nice to find one that is peaceful and where one can have a conversation. This has been one of our office lunch regulars, and is also good for dinner. Full bar.

Four of us went to Fly Trap for dinner. Every dish was tasty but small and the menu was somewhat limited. However, I've heard that they mix up the menu frequently, sometimes changing the main ingredient, sometimes the prep. We'll definitely go back forewarned to...More

A friend highly recommended this spot. Menu was a total snooze. Small plates had some good flavors -- the Brussel sprouts and peppers. The large plates? Not so much.

I had dinner here at the bar after a late-arriving flight. I was pleased to see some small plates on the menu which were perfect for this situation. I had the flatiron steak kabob, which was delicious. I would definitely eat here again!

Had a couple drinks after work. Atmosphere was nice, and drinks good, but a little pricey. A cider and old fashioned came to over $25 with tip. Cool place to stop for a drink, but wouldn't be a normal watering hole for me.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
