Low key restaurants in the Embarcadero or nearby
I am looking for a reasonably priced restaurant (entrees under $20) near the Embarcadero. Will be joining a couple friends who have worked late hours all week and want a mellow environment with solid food. Would need to get in tonight (Friday) without a reservation or by calling for one today. Ideas?
If you're going early (right after work), Cosmopolitan Cafe has an early-bird special that's 3 courses for $25. 5:30 reservation tonight is available on Open Table, but you could also call. They offer a choice between soup or two salads, two entrees and two desserts. I think it's Mon - Friday. Hard to say where on the Embarcadero you're talking about, but it's only a couple of blocks from the Hyatt Regency on Spear.
