What are good restaurants and sights walking distance from Motel Capri?

My daughter and I want to know if there are any good restaurants to try that are within walking distance from Motel Capri in the Marina District? We'd love to check out nearby attractions as well.

A16 is a good choice for dinner.  If you are going to be there more than one night, don't limit yourself to restaurants within walking distance.  You are a 10 to 15 minute cab ride from many great places like Seven Hills, Pizzeria Delfina, and Chapeau!.  Make sure you reserve ahead.

Have a great trip!

Hi Cindy,

Motel Capri is in a great spot for sightseeing! I recommend walking along Chestnut St - if you get hungry, try Blue Barn Gourmet (great salads/sandwiches), SusieCakes (amazing cupcakes/cake slices), Seed + Salt (healthy fare) and Judy's Cafe for good brunch (cash only!).

Additionally, check out:

If you find yourself wanting to do more window shopping/taste testing than Chestnut Street allows, walk a few blocks to Union St. The street (from Pierce + Union to Union + Vanness) has tons of boutiques and eateries!

Enjoy your time here! :)

Hi Cindy,

Motel Capri is 2 blocks from Chestnut St which is the main street in the Marina district. You will find a ton of restaurant options and a few stores. Ones that stand out are Tacolicious - trendy mexican food (tacos, great drinks, and fun vibe), Delarosa - pizza, Reed & Greenough (bar if your daughter is 21 or older) - love the space and the vibe isn't as collegey, A16 is amazing italian food, nicer place, great pizza, burrata and pasta. Blue Barn Gourmet is a great place to grab a salad or paninis, nice lunch place! Super Duper Burger is also on Chestnut, even though it's technically a chain, their burgers are delicious! Always juicy and really well made, plus they serve strauss soft serve ice cream, which is a great end to your meal (and they're open late). If you want a true local place, head to Hole in the Wall pizza, on scott street. The pizza isn't the best you'll ever have, but it's open until 4 am and makes a great late night craving filler. I love sandwiches from Marina Submarine - their subs are made by one guy and their sauce makes everything delicious! Plus, they're huge and super filling!

For attractions, Crissy Field is within walking distance. It's right by the water and makes for a great place to take a sandwich and enjoy by the water. On Friday evenings, Fort Mason has food trucks with music. This is fun because you get to try different food and really get an SF local vibe. During the day you can walk around Fort Mason and get a cool angle of the bridge while enjoying a little history. Palace of Fine Arts is also a beautiful walk, the architecture and picture opportunities are endless here. Since you are so close to the bridge you can also walk on the bridge itself (it's free! - so is everything else on this to do list) which will give you a different view and something to cross off your bucket list :) Union St is cute to walk around, there are lots of restaurants there as well as cute boutiques. 

Enjoy!

Are there ever! You've got a ton to work with in regards to restaurants. Somethings they can get busy, especially on a weekend, since the Marina District is one of the more uppidy and bustling hoods in SF. A16 is one of my favorite Italian spots. Get the burrata! But make a reservation in advance.


Go to Tacolicious and Tackofor tacos, Umami and Roam Artisan Burgers for great burgers, Castagna for a nice European meal, and Home Plate Restaurant for brunch. If you're there on a Friday night, walk to Fort Mason Center (go early in the evening to beat the rush) for Off the Grid and more food trucks then you can shake a stick at. I wrote about it on my blog here: http://whiskeytangoglobetrot.com/2011-food-truckalypse-midsummer-streety-awards/.


All that to say, you won't have any shortage of restaurants to choose from. I imagine SF expert Krista Gray will chime in, and have some amazing recommendations, too. Have fun in my 'ole city!
