need a casual & cool, mid price place to take a local foody gal. No heavy red meat plaese...truly neighborhood local place that executes great food and service...thanks a million.

      I had a great meal and equally great service at Frascati (Hyde Street, Russian Hill) recently. It was my first visit, so I'm not sure if all the servers are as professional and knowledgeable about the menu as ours was but I really recommend this place.

        I would also recommend Frascati. I've been three to four times and each visit was incredible. The servers are indeed very knowledgeable. I've tried something new on the menu each time and have yet to be disappointed.

        Chapeau? Aziza?

        Great service is rare in San Francisco, particularly in neighborhood places.

          Luella in Russian Hill is a favorite.

            thanks, any thoughts on after dinner cocktail place that is hip but not crazy crowded? possibly music?
