Sunset District Restaurants

VIEW BY:

An oft-forgotten neighborhood for San Francisco dining, the Sunset is a long section of single residences stretching all the way to the sandy and picturesque Ocean Beach, with a few award-winning restaurants thrown in for creativity. Bordering San Francisco’s Outer Sunset region and highly accessible by mass transit, the Forest Hill and West Portal areas of the city are notable among the list of affluent San Francisco neighborhoods. As such, these pretty areas offer ample dining opportunities visiting such culinary regions as France, India and Peru. Among the locals, the West Portal is a go-to destination for some of the best crepes in the city. Anyone visiting the area for the first time could simply head to West Portal Avenue, near the muni station, to find the area’s most lively selection of little shops, eclectic restaurants, sidewalk cafes and coffee shops.
