Surprisingly good for a bar-like place - simple, good and affordable.

“Not Expected...Way Better!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2006

So we're visiting a friend in San Fran. He lives a couple blocks from the new AT&T Park. We wandered over to Nova Bar on Second Street, figuring we get some decent bar food and determine what we were going to do for the rest of Saturday night.

Walking in, we saw nothing special. A typical neighborhood joint with a long bar down the left side and a row of table down the right, and plenty of dark wood. A loud mix of classic and current rock was being pumped through the sound system. We grabbed a table and asked for some menus. The menu had a decent wine list had several interesting choices for entrees.

We got a bottle of Zin for the three of us and ordered dinner. When our dinners arrived, we were blown away! Each plate was thoughtfully prepared and tastefully presented. We had a great time there.
