Restaurants in SF with Communal Tables?

I'd like to compile a list of restaurants that have a communal table to try with friends in 2009. Any restaurant type is great- high end or low end. Thanks in advance to you all.

          Haven't noticed one in the last year.

          1. Here's a SF Gate article with list: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article...

            There's also the picnic tables at Taqueria Cancun.

                  When did Sociale add a communal table? The restaurant's so small I'm not sure where they would put it.

                      I don't think so - I've been in Sociale recently. Always like to see them get recommended, it's a favorite place, but can't imagine a communal table there.

                        It's right inside the door. It seats six to eight people.

                    1. Dosa on Fillmore
                      Crepe o Chocolat used to have one, not sure if they still do

                        1. - Foreign Cinema
                          - Sol Food (one table, in San Raphael)

                          1. There's one made out of a very nice slice of tree at Two.

                            1. The Presidio Social Club has one.

                                1494 California Street, San Francisco, CA

                                  1. that's a great list! Thanks again everyone.

                                          Add Zare at the Fly Trap. San Francisco

                                      2. slanted door has a glass room in the back that has a communal/banquet table. it's a cool space that looks out onto the main dining room. a16 has a similar setup in the back. i've been to both and recommend them both. you'll need to work out your reservations ahead of time.
