Nopa is a San Francisco gathering place North of the Panhandle

Specializing in organic wood-fired cuisine, we serve simple food created with seasonal ingredients sourced from local purveyors. This philosophy is shared by our organic Mexican kitchen, nopalito.

Collaboration is the heart and soul of our dynamic kitchen. Each chef contributes passion and expertise in building the weekly menu, and our open-air kitchen offers guests the chance to see them at work. It’s always been about taking care of people—neighbors, friends, family—and creating a place for everyone to eat well and connect.

“We understand that a great restaurant is a sum of its parts, and we never cease in our commitment to our values as a San Francisco culinary institution.” – Nopa Chef Laurence Jossel

We build fresh, new menus each week from the incredible ingredients available to us in Northern California—this means sourcing locally from Farmers’ Markets around the Bay Area and other nearby food purveyors. We serve generous portions, offer a diverse wine list, and craft thoughtful, straightforward cocktails.
