    I have eaten at this restaurant. The food is really good. The Sheba Piano Lounge owner is really nice lady. She is really good people. I give her restaurant 10 out of 10. My girlfriend lives in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Her name is Meron Kumlachew Derbew. And I look forward to taking her there in San Francisco to the Sheba Piano Lounge in lower filmore area.
