Private Dining Near Moscone
Hello - new to Chowhound. Was hoping for some suggestions for some great private dining options within close walking distance of Moscone. Not particular about food genre - just need a private more quiet space for meetings.
You are almost looking at a buy-out, depending on the size of the restaurant.
My absolute favorite restaurant in the area is Ame ($$$) and they can do a private lunch for up to 80: http://www.amerestaurant.com/parties....
I am a little leery to recommend it as I have not eaten there under the current chef and it has been wildly erratic with various chef changes, but Annabelle's is a frequent choice for buy-outs with groups attending conferences at Moscone and can be very decent: http://www.annabelles.net/
Because they are w/o an executive chef right now, I am willing to bet you could get Fifth Floor at a decent rate (bargain with them!) and the food will be at least good (maybe not great) and the room very upscale: http://www.fifthfloorrestaurant.com/
But I am very partial to Jeff's suggestion of Two. But with that many, it sounds like a buy-out as well (not familiar with their private rooms): http://www.two-sf.com/privatedining/
Lulu is a very CA restaurant that might be a good choice for out-of-towners as a representation of the SF dining scene: http://www.restaurantlulu.com/LuLu_di...
Good luck and whatever you do, stay away from Jillian's!
Thanks to all for your responses! It has been super helpful. Since I'm located in the Northwest - it's difficult to guage distances. I have dined at Two before and thought their food was fine. Their pricing is really reasonable for luncheons too. Thanks again!!
