We once saw a waitress pour wine into a mug and drink it behind the bar here, and that’s exactly why this place rules. The setup is warm and inviting, and the staff is exceptionally nice. Stop by for a drink before or after dinner in the Mission, or just make a meal out of the steak tartare and French-style pizzas (basically flatbreads).

California Wine Merchant
California Wine Merchant doesn’t serve food, but it’s a good option for a wine night in the Marina.
Ruby Wine in Potrero Hill feels like you’re hanging out in your friend’s living room, but with a better selection of natural wines.
Francis Ford Coppola Winery
The Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Geyserville is like a theme park in the middle of a museum, and it's a great place to spend an afternoon exploring.

A low key Russian Hill wine bar with excellent meat and cheese. The ladies love Union Larder.
