Later evening (10-10:30pm) Dinner Recs

Hello SFHounders,

Taking the girlfriend to SF for the weekend in August...she's only briefly visited before. We're doing the evening Alcatraz tour and will get back approx 9:30. What are good options for a 10-10:30 dinner? Delfina and A16 are two options I considered, A16 since it is near the Marina. Mid to upscale is fine in any cuisine type.

Other places we're planning to hit on the trip are Canteen, luella, Tadich and Yank Sing.

  1. We generally go to Great Eastern, Jackson below Grant Ave., for late-evening more or less splurge meals, but I've noticed several new places claiming to stay open quite late, including Nopa, Divisadero near Hayes, which I haven't tried.

    We need a list of places that are good for post-performance or other later dining. I used to keep one in my head, but no more.

    Zuni serves late but I've had many disappointing meals there and wonder if things don't slide downhill as closing time approaches.

    You'll probably be pretty darn cold, so keep that in mind when making your choice!

    I forget what time A16's last reservation is, but definitely recommend you do reserve if you decide on it.

    1. A couple of my late night favorites:
      Cafe Maritime
      Farmer Brown

      1. Thanks for the tips. I'll definitely remember to wear a jacket too!

        1. I've been seated at Foreign Cinema and Delfina at 10:30 or 11 pm on more than one occasion. I wasn't impressed with Oola enough to make it back there yet or Bacar, which is also open late but spendy. NOPA, a newer place is open til 1am, but I haven't tried it yet.

          I usually call or make a reservation if I'm going out at that time so there are no misunderstandings on either side of the transaction. Have fun, C-

          1. The Globe around JAckson square. The food is very good and it's open till till like midnight or 1 am.
