Actually, I think a lot of the smaller and less well known restaurants have free corkage. You just have to call in advance and ask (and also to make sure they have wine glasses!).
And on the other end of the spectrum, there are some places that serve wine and won't let you bring in your own at all--like that Indian Pizza place in the outer sunset in that mall with the 7-11 and laundrymat, whose name obviously escapes me.
re: Robert Lauriston
Solstice on California and Divisidero has 1/2 price glasses on Sunday and 1/2 price bottles every Monday. Not the best selection or well known wines but it is something I certainally take advantage of. THe food it good, not great but not poor.
Oh, and one market and all of Lark Creek restaurants had half priced bottles for the month of July
Fournou's Ovens in the Stanford Court hotel used to offer 'no corkage' on Sunday and Monday nights.
I don't know the current policy.
