Housed in one of the city’s most historic buildings, this Belle Époque stunner is still breathtaking after more than 20 years, with glamorous mosaic floors, colorful glass and polished bronze at every turn. The Embarcadero-adjacent location offers lovely views of the Bay Bridge and the water, and business lunchers as well as evening romance-seekers adore its transporting vibe—there's not a bad seat in this restaurant. Chef/owner Nancy Oakes is known as a pioneer of Californian cooking, with comforting takes on standards like silky-smooth lobster bisque and a tweaked Cobb salad that eschews chicken for roasted white prawns and comes tossed with crispy bacon bits, feta cubes, cucumbers and tomato slices in different, visually appealing shapes.
