Blowout dinner for 10 people - where?

My challenge: Find the most luxe and over-the-top place for a private dinner for ~10 people. This group dined at Ame last year, and had a great time.

Where else can I send them in SF Union Square/Financial District that would compare with last year's meal?

I thought about renting the private apt. at the Clift, but their food is only "eh." This is a group that knows their food & wine.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

    1. It's hard to beat Rubicon's wine list.

      1. These come to mind-
        Kokkari- there is a great room in the cellar and the service is excellent for large parties. I was here for a big party and everyone had a great time.

        Coi- might be interesteing I know they have a private room.



        Myth- I know its not over the top but the food is really good, good wines and a nice private room.

        Sparrow- has nice rooms for private dining.

          A friend had a private dinner at Coi and really liked it -- I'm not sure, however, if it fits 10.

            Masa is closed on Mondays, and the dinner has to be on a Monday in January. We had hoped to have it there, but they can't open for just 10 people. I will definitely give Coi a try!

              That's too bad - Coi is closed on Mondays too.

                Not to worry! Since Coi is so tiny, we may do a buyout. I have spoken to Ipe at the restaurant, and we may work something out.

                Thanks for all the recommendations!

                  I hope it works out -- I am a huge fan of the restaurant and Daniel Patterson.

          2. I'd second Rubicon. Boulette's Larder is another that will put together as elaborate a menu as you want. You'd have to bring your wine, though.

            1. Boulevard has a private room that fits 10-12 people.

                We fit 22 in that room one time. I'd recommend no more than 12.
