This kind of question could fuel an endless debate among San Franciscans, as it seems the amount of restaurants in SF are unlimited. You can find superb restaurants in just about every neighborhood in San Francisco - a lot of the criteria you use to value and judge a restaurant is really what drives your decision.

If I had to rank, I'd probably say the Mission is probably one of the best neighborhoods for foodies; There's a mix of eclectic eateries as well as top-ranked establishments that always seem to make the "best of" list in almost any guide. SOMA, North Beach, the Marina and Hayes Valley also all have top-ranked places to dine.

There are way too many good restaurants throughout all of the City. Try going to Yelp or Zagat or sfstation.com for reviews.

Good luck,

I think the mission captures the most of what is trendy and current for many San Franciscans right now. In a foodie town like this, there are great places everywhere, even the Bayview has a great places.

The Richmond, North Beach, Downtown, as well as the Mission, Noe and Hayes Valleys etc. So many restaurants opening and closing all the time yet venerable spots also attract many.
