The Canvas & Gallery San Francisco, CA
Cibo Bar & Grill <br> The decor is nice (its kind of a upscale California diner look). The cuisine is decent. It's kind of the average burgers and fries (with maybe a few twist throne in there). The food is well prepared and tastes good, I do think however that they have some odd combinations. For example: Philly cheese steak on a dutch crunch role. It sounds good, but the bread is too soft for this particular type of food and the bread adds an odd sweetness and and the crunchy top was really rough on my mouth. Beside you just can't beat a good crunchy French roll or poor Boy for this. Overall, the food is good. Perhaps it's a good stop on your way shopping.
He Canvas & Gallery San Francisco, CA
Canvas cafe <br> This is a great place. They have a nice selection of food that's always well prepared (and they have a nice selection of wine, beer, and other beverages). A popular place, it always seems to be full. The meanwhile atmosphere always lively, so if you want a quiet place to think this isn't it. They usually have something going on in the evening like live Jazz or other types of entertainment. The Cafe doubles as an art gallery so thewalls are always have something of interest on them. Is always well kept and clean. Overall I think this is a great place to go and just hang out.

Brother-In-Laws Bbq San Francisco, CA
Love this place. Meat was tender and the sauce was great (but hot is really HOT). Small place. I went with a bunch of friends and every one loved it. Highly recommended.
Big Nate's Barbeque San Francisco, CA
This was good. Some neat sport memorabilia on the walls. But I have had better (the meat was a bit tough).
Powell's Place San Francisco, CA
Love this place! Best fried chicken in the world (and cheap)!!! The other stuff is good too (try the sweet potato pie). The place is very homey too (nothing matches but it doesn’t mater, it a real home style place). And the service is great, always prompt and super friendly. LOVE THIS PLACE!!!
House of Nan King San Francisco, CA
Great food. Don’t go for friendly people or atmosphere, becaus you won’t get either one here. It’s small and cramped, but the food is killer (people line up for this place). Service is prompt. In, eat, out move on… that seems to be the idea here. Price is good too.
Bocce Cafe-Italian Restaurant San Francisco, CA
This place is great. The price is good for what you get. Food is always tasty, and the decor and atmosphere is nice (nice roaring fire place). Some times the have music (nice but loud). The interior is decorated so that it looks like it has vines growing inside. Good wine selection and bar. This would be a great date restaurant. You have to walk down a short ally to get to it, so it feels like a hidden treasure (even though it’s well known).
Ebisu Restaurant San Francisco, CA
Good food, Standard Japanese (bento, etc.). prepared well. That’s about it, nothing spectacular, but good.
Thirsty Bear Brewing Co San Francisco, CA
Good Tapas, good beer… a bit pretentious in the surroundings and servers though. Good food. Try it at least once.
Mr Barbeque San Jose, CA
This is a little joint. Simple atmosphere. The portions could be just a bit bigger. The sauce is gobed on and has a nice tanginess. It’s decent.
Mimi's Cafe San Jose, CA
For the money the food is ok, I wouldn’t call it spectacular. The atmosphere is nice though. If you go, the two things that they do very well though are the French onion soup and the cream of chicken soup (served only on Sundays though).
Holder's Country Inn San Jose, CA
I like this place a lot! It gets very busy though, so be patient if you go. The breakfast is the star! Pancakes of various types are made fresh. You have to try the crêpes or the blintzes! The lunch is ok… but breakfast is what it’s all about at this place.
Chilis Hamburger Grill & Bar San Jose, CA
Big chain. Food is pretty standard, burgers, ribs, etc. You can be sure to get the same food you always do, (it’s always done fairly well). This location is very popular, but I think most of them are. Be prepared to wait.
Denny's San Jose, CA
It’s Denny’s, big chain. Food is pretty standard. You can be sure to get the same food you always do. See a lot of drunks here on a late Friday night/Saturday morning as most of the local clubs a close by.
Popeyes San Jose, CA
I like Popeye’s. It’s a lot like KFC with a little bi of spice added. I love their dirty rice too.
Cardinal Coffee Shop Lounge San Jose, CA
The food at this place is decent, but that’s not the reason you go to this place. It’s like eating in Vegas during the late 50’s. The service is at times a bit surly but the decor is mirrors and neon, and just flat out funny. Go on a Friday night and watch the 60 somthings trickle out of the karaoke bar. Best people watching around (especially since it’s open 24 hours).
Bella Mia San Jose, CA
The decor of this place is very neat. The food was full of flavor and a decent portion. I enjoyed it
Vegetarian House San Jose, CA
The food here is well prepared, and tasty. Interesting selection (especially the fake meats). The place is odd though, it serves as headquarters for a religious group, so there’s a video going of their leader in the back ground, and a small museum of her outfits, interesting.
Mr Chau's San Jose, CA
I love Mr. Chow’s. it’s not real Chinese, and it’s heavy (and I’m sure it’s bad for you too). But it tastes great! You get a lot for the money. I always get 2 meals out of one at this place.
