The Cliff House

Fabulous Art Deco decor in the main dining room and bar and a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean. The food is good, too. For something different, try brunch on the weekends. 1090 Point Lobos Avenue, S.F. (near Ocean Beach), (415) 386 - 3330 http://www.cliffhouse.com

The Far East Cafe

The kind of place Sam Spade might have gone for Chinese food and mysterious clues, this venerable establishment still has private, curtained booths for atmospheric intrigue. They make a mean Manhattan, too!

Laughter, music, and the aroma of delicious food beckon from the bustling scene on Allston Way. Upon entering FIVE, guests cannot help but feel uplifted by the gorgeous and expansive space with its breathtakingly high ceilings and majestic white columns. Intricate crown moldings of a bygone era adorn the ceiling only to be interrupted by a modern and eye-catching red chandelier.

John's Grill

Sam Spade really did eat here -- in "The Maltese Falcon."
Author Dashiell Hammett, who worked next door, was a regular patron of the restaurant. So, upstairs, there's a exhibition (open to the public) of Hammett-related and other private-eye memorabilia, including a replica of the Falcon itself.

Hotel Rex

This new hotel near Union Square sports a 1920s "club-like" interior, featuring vintage furnishings and original salon portraits by San Francisco artists of the 1920s and 30s. It's a very cozy spot for a drink and there is now a charming small restaurant as well.

Le Colonial

Just minutes away from popular Union Square in San Francisco’s downtown district, evokes the ambiance of French colonial Vietnam in a lush, romantic setting. The inner courtyard, which once housed legendary Trader Vic’s, has been transformed into an oasis featuring mosaic-like tile flooring, a vaulted, pressed-tin ceiling, tropical plants and plush rattan furniture, all accented by the glow of candlelight. Diners enjoy a menu designed to showcase authentic Vietnamese dishes with a touch of French influence. Le Colonial has delighted in welcoming visitors for over ten years. http://www.lecolonialsf.com/home_frame.html

Schroeder's Restaurant

This cozy, vintage German restaurant was a 1998 ADSC Preservation Award winner. It sports a 1936 neon sign outside, and atmospheric, 1930s murals of Middle-European life inside. (The murals' restoration was done by David Boysel -- the leading restorer of the Oakland Paramount Theater -- who won an ADSC Preservation Award for his work at Schroeder's.)

Tadich Grill

Established in 1849, it is probably the longest-continuously-operating restaurant in San Francisco.. It has retained much of its vintage decor and (like Sam's Grill) also offers private dining booths.
