Late Night Arrival, Late Dinner

Arriving in Wharf area ( I know nothing in that area) around 10:30 Friday night. Looking for something casual in area or short cab ride away. Nothing fancy, just good food after a long day. Any suggestions.

  1. Rose Pistola in nearby North Beach might be your best option. It is open till midnight. Here's the link for more info

    Other nearby options but either someone needs to comment on them or give you need to read the links

      Thanks for the feedback, probably give Rose Pistola, or O'Neil's a shot. Depending on how late I get in, maybe try my luck in Chinatown

        Cool. Hope you report back on what you tried which will help others in your situation.

          Isn't Yuet Lee open until 3:00 a.m.?

          Yuet Lee Seafood
          1300 Stockton St, San Francisco, CA 94133

          1. re: Paul H

            Yuet Lee is currently closed for vacation.

            1. re: Xiao Yang

              CORRECTION -- It has re-opened. It was still closed for vacation a few days ago when I walked by, but my memory of the re-opening date was apparently faulty (no surprise, at my age).

    2. Globe is open late and they are a quick shot from the Wharf via cab.

        Second on Globe. Sundays they're open till 11:30.

        Some other possibilities:

      2. Cafe Maritime is also not too far, on Lombard, and serves food until 1am. From 11pm-1am they run a late night happy hour with a dozen oysters for $13 and $3.50 beers.

        1. Thanks everyone. I'll definitely report back. Won't be back to Chicago until Friday next week.

          1. I know the hour's late and my plane is leaving in a few hours, but when I leaved in town for about three months about 10 years ago, I remember a lot of places along Union street. Some must serve food late. I recall going to Perry's (??), about it. Suggestions in that area? If I remember, lot of bars too.

                mrsricho -- Do you have a secret link to everybody's hours? Where are you getting all this good info? thanks.

                1. re: Kim Cooper

                  I was just looking up places I thought were open late in Yelp. :-)

                2. re: mrsricho

                  That info is available in the Chow database.

                  Cow Hollow late night

                  1. re: rworange

                    Some hours info is in the Chow database, but it's always best to check the restaurant's site or opentable page.

                    1. re: Robert Lauriston

                      Not really. I have found errors on both restaurants websites, opentable, menupage and yelp. The best thing to do is to call the restaurant to confirm hours. Surprisingly menupages seems to be the most accurate of the other sources these days. Sometimes opentable only has hours for time that reservations can be booked ... that is sometimes lunch hours and often breakfast hours are not on it.

                      Still, what hours are on Chow are far more reliable than what is on Yelp. They have the lowest match up rate.

                      1. re: rworange

                        Yeah, calling is best. Some restaurants never update their Web sites. Dopo recently started opening for lunch on Saturdays, and they didn't even update the sign in the window!

                        The Chow database is relatively new so has relatively little out-of-date information.
