3 San Francisco Restaurants in Yelp’s Top 25 List

(KRON/NEXSTAR) – If trying new foods is your favorite part of traveling, Yelp has the to-do list for you.

Three of the top 25 rated and rated restaurants on Yelp are in San Francisco.

“Most popular” refers to the total number of reviews and ratings a restaurant gets – not necessarily top rated.

The top restaurant on the list, Bottega Louie in Los Angeles, has 17,020 reviews and counts, Yelp said.

Brenda’s French Soul Food in San Francisco had the sixth highest number of reviews, Bi-Rite Creamery ninth, and House of Prime Rib 23rd.
