Imo, its a good salary if you're single or married with no kids. I'd say it's above average in SF. Probably middle of the road among coders/programmers who are generally the best paid in the tech industry. If you want to live in SF "somewhat well" with a family of 4, I'd say you need at least 250k + combined between you and your spouse. You get better bang for your buck living over the bridge in the East Bay or a bit down the peninsula.
I'm no expert though and I personally live in the South Bay but have lived in SF.
