Bay Area Home to Friendly Restauants


Are you into service with a smile? Then the Bay Area is one of the better places to grab a bite and receive awesome service.

San Francisco-based online reservation site OpenTable released a list of the country's best service restaurants. And the Bay Area is home to five of the nations top 50 best service restaurants.

The list is made up of more than seven million OpenTable user reviews of more than 12,000 restaurants.

California had more restaurants on the list than any other state with nine winners and New York came in second with six.

The only San Francisco restaurant to make the cut was Acquerello but several North Bay fixtures made the cut, including Cyrus and Madrona Manor in Healdsburg, the French Laundry in Yountville and Farmhouse Inn & Restaurant in Forestville.
