We once saw a waitress pour wine into a mug and drink it behind the bar here, and that’s exactly why this place rules. The setup is warm and inviting, and the staff is exceptionally nice. Stop by for a drink before or after dinner in the Mission, or just make a meal out of the steak tartare and French-style pizzas (basically flatbreads).

Duckhorn Vineyards in St. Helena makes great red wines, and feels more like a country home for a dream vacation than a vineyard.
Nectar Wine Lounge
One of our favorite places for wine in the Marina, Nectar has a sleek space and good food, too.
A16 turns out some of the best pizza in San Francisco. The small plates are close to perfect, and you can actually get a reservation. There’s no catch. Just go.

A low key Russian Hill wine bar with excellent meat and cheese. The ladies love Union Larder.
