    Question What's your favorite restaurant in San Francisco?

    In May I'll be in San Francisco for a couple of days before driving up to Sonoma for my cousin's wedding. I'm taking someone that hasn't ever been to SF before.

    We want to go out for a special dinner someplace fantastic. I'm not looking for a chain restaurant ... I'm looking for someplace we can only go to in SF ... maybe along the water.

    Suggestions anyone? What's your favorite restaurant in San Francisco?
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.

    I had one of the best meals EVER here. We ate here right after we saw Jersey Boys last summer and it was superb. (Sephora is in walking distance too )

    Re: What's your favorite restaurant in San Francisco?

    I love Little Italy in S.F. for lunch or dinner. Can't think of a specific restaurant. We go there every time, and, we just sort of know it by sight. If I think of the name...I will let you know. I know it's near Biordi Italian pottery shop....which is dangerous to go into if you don't want money to fly from your wallet! ha!

    Vegetarian?http://www.greensrestaurant.com/ Also, very very good.

    Never been to this one, but my best friend raves about it- http://www.slanteddoor.com/

    And I went somewhere new last time, but I can't remember the name. I'll get back to you...

    Got it! This was great too- http://www.nopasf.com/

    If you like seafood and don't care what the price is, try Scoma's on Fisherman's wharf.

    http://www.scomas.com/

    It is very popular so expect a wait. The last time my husband and I were there we put our names in and the wait was 90 minutes so we walked over to the Boudin Bakery and had appetizers upstairs while we waited to get into Scoma's. I don't recommend this though, by the time we sat down at Scoma's we weren't nearly as hungry as we wanted to be. My husband tried real hard to finish his cioppino but couldn't.

    Re: What's your favorite restaurant in San Francisco?

    As a former long-time resident of San Francisco, I have to absolutely insist you try at least some of these. This list in no way begins to touch the wealth of cuisine that is in The City:

    Delfina- http://www.delfinasf.com
    Jardiniere- http://www.jardiniere.com
    Gary Danko- http://www.Garydanko.com
    Fleur de Lys- http://www.fleurdelys.com
    Chapeau!- http://www.bistrochapeau.ypguides.net
    Acme Chop House- http://www.acmechophouse.com
    Brandy Ho's Hunan Cuisine- http://www.brandyhos.com
    Bocce Cafe- http://www.yelp.com/biz/bocce-cafe-san-francisco
    Pakwan Indian Restaurant- http://www.pakwanrestaurant.com


    I suggest that you avoid the tourist areas and just dive right into the local scene. Fisherman's Wharf is fine, but the prices are overflated and it's just...so...ugh! You absolutely MUST venture into the Richmond District and go to the Toy Boat Dessert Cafe on 6th Avenue and Clement Street.
    Now, it's kinda far, but if you're renting a car and planning on going to Napa (which I totally recommend)...

    Bouchon- This place is amazing. Thomas Keller (culinary star, culinary consultant on Ratatouille)'s take on a classic French bistro. The food and service here is absolutely stellar!

    I wish you luck and good eating,

    Jen, I haven't been to the Acme Chop House, but hear it's great. It's also right at the Giants' stadium, so that might be extra cool for you.

    Acme Chop House is excellent American meat-and-potatos kind of food, really well done. I liked the flatiron steak last time I was there. And as a Giants fan myself it makes a really neat experience know know you're eating at the stadium.
