John's Grill, a San Francisco tradition since 1908 is a must on a visit to San Francisco. This landmark was the setting for the MalteseFalcon novel whose author Dashiell Hammett was a regular and mentioned John's Grill in his novel.

It is a gathering spot for local and national celebrities where one enjoys excellent service and great seafood and steaks at honest prices in a traditional San Francisco atmosphere. Dark panel walls, antiques, white table linens, pictures of old San Francisco, photos of celebrities who frequent the restaurant are all a part of the excitement at this famous grill which was featured in Gourmet and chosen as one of the 10 best in S.F. by Esquire. Dress is casual. We have a full bar as well as an extensive wine list featuring wines from Napa Valley.Citysearch
