I know I am being a pest but I desperately need some feedback on upcoming trip to SF
As I posted before, I making reservations for a trip to SF in early November. I got some great responses and have lined up Luella, Myth and Frascati.
I am left with Thursday night for party of 6, I had hoped for the Slanted Door but am having trouble with times - too early or too late. Any suggestions on a good alternative within easy reach of BART? I wanted to be in the marketplace area if possible.
I also still have Saturday night unresolved, it will be a party of 8 and I would like something interesting - along the special occasion line, and not too noisey.
I'm not price senstive, but am running short on time for 8 on a Saturday.
Boulevard is right across the street.
Also nearby are Aqua, Monte Cristo Cafe, One Market, Chaya Brasserie.
Boulevard is a short walk from Bart or the Ferry Building. It's one of SF's best places on most people's lists.

It might help if you posted the date for Saturday dinner.
NOPA is a great place to get a last second res; they open up the lines at 2pm every day for that day. You have to call at 2pm sharp, though. They're large enough to accomodate eight. Food is great though I don't know if I'd call it "special."
Incanto is another great place where you can often get a last minute res.
re: Morton the Mousse
I also would call Nopa's food great. It's not wildly unusual, but those apple slices with almond butter and sea salt free amuse bouches they gave us were certainly "special". My husband would also say their Med. fish stew was special.
Only trouble is that it gets a bit noisy. It wasn't really a problem until these 3 drunk matrons started screaming with laughter at the next table - but that could happen anywhere.
One Market is a really lovely space with comfortable seating. The food used to be stellar, but don't know about now.
