    Hates it

    I must be missing something....
    People rave about how great Zuni is so I've dined at Zuni's not once, but three (3) times in the past six years (I didn't understand what the fuss was all about the first time, so I wanted to be fair and try again) However, each time the food was just okay; not what I would expect from a restaurant of this 'supposed' caliber and price level. (I'm glad 2 of the 3 times I was taken as a guest and didn't choke when the bill came). With the exception of my last visit, the waitstaff was generally (and unacceptably) inattentive almost bordering on rude. No fourth time for me, thank you. There are many other restaurants in SF that know how to make their customers feel like the time and money spent was worth every penny.

    Best NEW YORK DELI on the West Coast!
    I don't want to rave too much about Teds, because then the already long lines will be out the door and down the block, but all I'll say is this former New Yawker is finally in DELI heaven here. Don't tell anyone. This will be our little secret..

    Authentic Home Cooked German Cuisine
    As a child, I spent many summers with my grandmother in Germany. The first time I ate at Walzwerk, I nearly cried as the food immediately brought me back to my childhood memories of my grandmother's home cooking. I've eaten at Suppenkuche and the food is excellent and very authentic, but it's more traditional German restaurant cuisine than good German home cooking that I remembered so well. The space is small and a bit crowded so there usually is a good wait for a table. Just sit in the bar area and enjoy a 'boot' of imported German Beer while you wait. Also, check out the bathroom with all the old East German 45 records on the walls and the toiletries from days long ago. They're priceless!
