Ideas for great,mid-range dining in SF?
My husband and I are going to be in SF for 4 nights at the end of the month, and it's our first trip away together in a long time. We're staying at the Hotel Vitale by the Embarcadero, and are looking for some recommendations for places to eat at night. We aren't interested in high-end, glamour restaurants unless they're really fantastic. We're looking for fun, pretty or modern designed smaller places that have excellent food, entrees probably in the $20-$30 range. We love seafood, modern, French, Mediterranean, fusion, anything Asian. Ideally we'd like a couple of suggestions relatively near the hotel, but will also head into other areas for a couple of nights. I've been looking through these boards, and have seen some great suggestions (Piperade, Bar Crudo, Salt House, Slanted Door, Range and Boulevard). I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on any of them, or any other ideas on where we should go...

Have been to Slanted Door a couple if times...it's wonderful. But get a reservation well in advance. Ate at Salt House last trip to SF and enjoyed that as well.
Bar Crudo and Salt House are good choices based on your post. I would also recommend Cav (if you are wine drinkers) Canteen and Perbacco. You might also enjoy one of the Belden Place restaurants - B44, Plouf etc.
Just got back and ate at Tadich Grill. Not modern at all, but solid seafood at reasonable prices. We enjoyed the experience,
