DAT recommendations in the city?

Wife and I, frequent visitors, will be in town Jan 21-25, which coincides with the Dining About Town period. We will be staying around Union Square or the Embarcadero. Looking for recommendations for restaurants accepting DAT. Does not have to be in the immediate area, just accessible by MUNI. Any cuisine. Thanks

So it's best to wait until some brave souls have checked out each restaurant and reported back on exactly what DAT will get you. Here's a thread discussing some DAT issues and some potential "winners" and "don't bothers" from the preliminary list:
