Food Scene
Marnee Thai has the authentic feel of being in Thailand. Their decor is certainly romantic with real bamboo wall paper. The staff are all friendly. The place can get a full house quick at night so arrive early to get a table. No reservation but they have a sign in sheet. Spatially, this place is somewhat small but it has a cozy feel to it. Get the coconut drink, shredded green papaya salad, garlic pork, tom yum soup, and basil chicken and you're all set!

Great Vietnamese Restaurant for pho noodle soup and other well known Vietnamese dishes like the spring and summer roles. They also make a kick-ass curry chicken noodle soup that is known to my circle of friends as the lava soup. It's like drinking lava but you'll live to tell about it!

They roast their own coffee beans and the staff there are friendly and courteous. I would highly recommend this as a morning place or afternoon stop.

This is my favorite Japanese restaurant. It's not just a sushi bar but they actually serve yellow tail cheeks grilled to perfection. I would highly recommend trying their sizzling platter of Chilean Sea Bass.

This is a very cool dive with the feel of rustic meets beach scene. Their walls are wooden and the foods are phenomenal and sort of pricey. It's a place to take someone on a romantic dinner and drink. The N-Judah train two blocks away from the house will get you there. Ubering back will only cost about $10.

Great little hidden Thai gem. A friend once took me here and ever since it is my favorite. I love their customer service level and their food is cooked to perfection -- not overly cooked but just right. Wonderfully decorative but not overwhelming. This is a restaurant that's not easy to locate so make sure you look directly from the 7-11 Store to find it.

Drinks & Nightlife
This is a genuine Irish pub. Durty Nelly's has great food and not just beer. Food ranging from fish and chips to grilled reuben, Irish fries, Nelly's Wings, Irish Burgers and Shepard's Pie. If you go, keep in mind it is a popular local hangout and will likely get crowded and lively on Friday and Saturday nights. Sunday afternoon can be pretty crowded there as well.

The Sunset Reservoir Brewing Company serves their specialty beers brewed on site and they make an amazing Portabella Mushroom burger and garlic friends. I recommend getting their sampler of the beers and the fries if you're not too hungry. Otherwise, let your eyes be bigger than your stomach and order a bunch of food and share it with your travel companion. This is a local hangout so you'll see lots of techies and hipsters there.

Parks & Nature
The Golden Gate Park is one of San Francisco's iconic gems. It's been noted by New Yorkers to be more expansive than the Central Park in NYC. Tucked away near the East end you'll find The Academy of Science, The Japanese Garden, and the DeYoung Museum. There are other sights of interest such as the renovated Conservatory of Flowers. This is a bike friendly park where you can peddle through or go on a Segway tour. It's walking friendly as well and often you'll find free concerts. In the summer, the Golden Gate Park hosts the Hardly Strictly Blue Grass Music Festival and the Outside Lands -- some free some not so free but worth every penny.
