An Essential Tool for Great Urban Living
The User-Created Reviews of Yelp

Like the perpetually useful Craigslist, the ultimate SF user review nexus that is Yelp is an utterly crucial component to modern urban living in the beautiful and exciting city of San Francisco. Slicing through the hype with honest, personal opinions of real people just like yourself makes Yelp first-stop shopping when it comes to finding the cream of the crop of San Francisco dining, shopping, drinking, and living experiences.
