Impeccable, but friendly, service; superb New French food; excellent wine list, not overpriced. Moreover, there is an elegant ambience to the setting on Nob Hill. It is cable car accessible, and the overall cost to the diner is considerably less than that of the Fr. Laundry. Check the menu on the Web.

Sorry to be contrary, but we were totally underwhelmed by the tasting menu & service at the Dining Room. Way too slow, waiting for wine glasses to be refilled several times, food was just ok. Perhaps the fact our last tasting menu had been at El Bulli...
