You both will appreciate the majestic beauty of the bridge alongside the amazing views of the city's skyline. The North Vista Point and Battery Spencer (Marin County) offer spectacular and probably the best views of the bridge.

Cuisine of San Francisco

The city is a multinational and multicultural, which in turn has a significant effect not only on dating in San Francisco, but also on the local gastronomy. The fusion culture combines attributes of diverse cuisines from around the world. This resulted in new and better variants of various dishes, of which the most popular are undoubtedly burrito (one of the best served at La Corneta Taqueria and Mamacita), cioppino available at Cioppino's, and California roll that Ebisu and Sushi Zen are known for. Moreover, SF is home to sourdough bread. The proximity of the ocean caused the main ingredients used in San Francisco cuisine include fish and seafood with Dungeness Crab at the top (excellent in Bar Crudo and Thanh Long). The venues of choice in the city are well-known Tonga Room, Fleur de Lys, Greens, and Original Joe's that offer specialities at affordable prices.

California is famous for originating high-quality wines at reasonable cost.

The most appreciated one is Charles Shaw, awarded the double gold medal in Annual International Eastern Wine Competition. In the city you can find a wide range of wine bars perfect for a date. We recommend especially a visit to the Nook, Vin Debut, or Barrique.
