Alamo Square Seafood Grill

The quirky little bistro serves nouvelle American cuisine with an emphasis on seafood. Small and closely-placed tables make the dining room crowded but cozy. Appetizers are a sampling from the best of the San Francisco Bay. Crab cakes and Basque-style steamed mussels are a few of the many delectable choices. Dinner offers a choice of fresh fish custom cooked to order. A selection of wines, both Californian and French, are sold by the glass and the bottle and no corkage fees are charged on Wednesdays. Be sure to try their three course prix fixe menu served daily.

803 Fillmore Street, Between Fulton & Grove Streets, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94117

This intimate French restaurant is tucked away on the border of the Duboce and Castro neighborhoods in San Francisco. Warm tones and exposed brick walls contribute to the romantic and quaint atmosphere. Classic French dishes such as Coq au Vin or steak frites are well-executed, and a well-appointment wine list is the icing on the cake.

151 Noe Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94114

Locals come to Acquerello on special occasions to enjoy meals that combine the best aspects of Italy and California. The incredibly artful dishes, prepared with extra care and tender love, please the palate and sate an empty stomach. The menu is prix fixe, starting with three courses. If you find it difficult to choose from among the restaurant's myriad bottles of wine, the knowledgeable wait staff is happy to suggest a selection sure to complement your food. Atmosphere is formal, so jackets are suggested for men, and sandals, sneakers and t-shirts should be avoided. This restaurant is a recipient of two Michelin stars.

1722 Sacramento Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94109
Foreign Cinema

Opened by a team that believes dinner and a movie are a natural combination, this courtyard restaurant and bar keeps an internationally intellectual atmosphere by projecting the films of Fellini, Godard and company on its neighbor’s walls. Tableside speakers add a drive-in feel to the French bistro fare, letting the films function as either the background or a main attraction. Reservations are recommended as Foreign Cinema is one of the leading contestants in the Mission hipness race.

2534 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94110

Located on the historic Jackson Square, Quince is one of San Francisco's culinary heavy hitters, which exudes style and warmth. Lindsay and Chef Michael Tusk's restaurant features ornamental Venetian chandeliers that adorn elegant rooms and give the place a royal touch. They take pride in sourcing the best ingredients locally and producing an excellently designed tasting menu. The cuisine served at Quince could be described as rustic Italian with a California flair. This restaurant is the perfect place to expect prompt and efficient service if you can manage to get a reservation! Menus are prix fixe only.

470 Pacific Avenue, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94133
Kokkari Estiatorio

Kokkari Estiatorio introduces Greek essence to the Embarcadero waterfront. The success of the Levi's Plaza favorite can be attributed to its elegant ambiance and top-quality food that patrons admit is flawless. It is christened after the fishing harbor in Samos Island and illustrates welcoming hospitality signature to the village. Traditional Aegean specialties and rustic Hellenic fare is presented with a modern take and includes the likes of moussaka, kolokithokeftethes, soutzoukakia and spanakotiropita. Multiple dining areas feature warm fireplaces, hand-made furnishings and ethnic accents to create the nostalgically charming Mediterranean vibe it aims for.

200 Jackson Street, San Francisco, CA, United States, 94111
Cafe Jacqueline

The color palette in the 12-table Cafe Jacqueline is soft and creamy, not entirely unlike the only dish on the menu: souffle. There are delicious house-made soups and simple crisp salads to pass the time as your souffle rises to the occasion in the oven. Souffle choices include cheese, garlic and lobster, among others. For dessert, chocolate, strawberry and seasonal specials take center stage. The service is warm and efficient for the upscale clientele here, and the wine list has a good selection of imported and domestic vintages.
