I'll give you my take on those points, maybe others have a differing one.
Career Office: the Career services director looked like she was in her late 20s (i found out later she was actually much older than that). She still seemed young and inexperienced to me. Some 1Ls I spoke with gave me the impression that that office was not of much help, and that you kind of need to be proactive on your own career prospects (though it seems like the resources are there at your disposal).
Campus: beautiful. It is a huge draw. The moment you walk onto campus you feel good about it. Lush, green, meandering walkways, picturesque buildings and trees. Boalt building is not as nice as the others, that's for sure, but the courtyard, outdoor cafe and surroudings help it integrate into the beauty of the rest of the campus.
Food - it's a college town and so has what you'd expect. I didn't sample too many places, but there is plenty of ethnic food, burger and pizza joints, and bars and pubs. SF obviously has great food, if that is a big selling point for you.
Law library - kind of crappy, I thought. It felt like my high-school library. I suppose I'd be comfortable studying there, but would probably seek out nicer spots on campus to study if it was all the same. Luckily, there are plenty of other nice spots, including the main library, to study.
