I am from Chicago and just recently visited your wonderful city. Food I ate was out of this world.

Friday Night:
5th Resturant in the Hotel Palomar
Great food and service. I had the fields of green with a macademaia nut dressings to start out with. They surprised me and my dinner partner with small appitzers which consisted of fish,citrus and a cream base. YUM. Then my main course was the sea bass. cooked to the right consistancy. Artfuly done and absolutely devine. For desert chocolate moose in a small pastery cup toped with a noodlely carmalized top. For those of you who are chocoholics like me you got to try this. They also gave us an added bonus for desert tart apple sorbet. Great way to clense the pallet. Loved it great way to start my trip.

Saturday:
Breakfest Buna Vista...? I think thats right...
The birth place of the Irish coffee. Okay its a blend of tourist and locals. The food was okay. Dinner quality but the people watching and toursty feel makes it a must go and experience for SF.

Lunch Hotel Nikko Japanese Resturant I know it starts with a N I think Novu? sorry if I botched the name. The food was wonderful I had a petite steak with taro and lotus chips, Tuna and Cucumber sushi and greens. very good. Service and food were great.

Dinner The Boulevard...great contemporary French Resturant. Loved it. The white aspergus soup done right not too rich not to creamy just the right condencedy. I ordered the Pork chop. Oh my god melts in your mouth with the carmalized onions and perfectly grilled vegies. Desert was this apple puff pastery with carmalized sauce and a small scoop of vanilla/cinn. home made icecream to the side.. great way to end the meal. The dinner partner I was with ordered a wonderful 1/2 bottle of pinot noir to perfectly compliment the meal.

Sunday Brunch at the Hilton Cityscape.
Talk about brunches of all brunches....great food. great view. They had varity of everything. From traditional breakfest food to caviar. If you want to eat till you drop with great food this is the place.

Okay this is my food review of SF as a visitor from IL Hope this is okay.
