35 "Small Plates" restaurants in San Francisco.
The seafood and vegetable-focused Mexican food at Cala is some of the best in San Francisco.

Barvale, in NoPa, serves quality tapas - including some of the best octopus we’ve ever eaten.
Nojo is a great example of our favorite type of restaurant: excellent food and easy to get into.
Meet Terzo, your utility player restaurant. It’s hard to go wrong at this Cow Hollow bistro.
A safe house from spicy sauce in the Castro, Eiji is one of the best low-key sushi spots around.
Chubby Noodle in the Marina is our go-to in the neighborhood for a good time and even better food. We occasionally dream about the pork tacos.
Lolo in the Mission is a fun Mexican spot with great margaritas that’s ideal for a weeknight dinner.
Altovino is an Italian restaurant in Nob Hill perfect for a quiet date or a business dinner.
Onsen is a Japanese restaurant attached to a communal bathhouse in the Tenderloin. And it’s definitely better than it sounds.
Leo’s Oyster Bar involves pricey, but tasty seafood in an ’80s power yacht come to life. Obviously it’s in the Financial District.
