America's most relaxed city

Called “The Paris of the West,” San Francisco is a city that wears its charms on its sleeve. With weeping views of the Bay and the Pacific coast from its famous hills, it’s also known as America’s foodie capital and one of the world’s intellectual hubs. From its true birth during the Gold Rush, the city by the Bay has been home to renegades, social movements and artists of all stripes. Don’t miss the vibrant Mission District, the famous hippie neighborhood of Haight-Ashbury, or the shopping Mecca of Union Square.

San Francisco's favorite seafood restaurant

Stay Editor's Note

Tarantino’s, located at Fisherman’s Wharf, has been serving the best seafood since 1946. It is family owned and operated with several loyal regulars. All of their fresh fish and live Dungeness crab comes from the end of the pier on which they are located. This seafood restaurant is loved by all.

While at Tarantino’s, you will enjoy the view of the harbor from their dining room, along with the superb cuisine. Menu items include Boston clam chowder, Mahi-Mahi with fresh mango salsa, pastas and other fine seafood offerings. Sidewalk dining is available, along with Tarantino’s own crab stand. Start off your meal the right way with fresh sourdough bread and a California wine selection.
