Dinner near Legion of Honor?

Looking for a place to have dinner that is walking distance from the Legion of Honor and is not Asian cuisine.

Any recommendations?

  1. Pacific Cafe.

    Pacific Cafe
    7000 Geary Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94121

    1. Tee Off Bar on Clement at 33rd.

      1. Get Russian deli takeout at Gastronome and have a picnic at the Legion of Honor if time permits. Get some blini then fill them with caviar and sour cream, with a nice beet salad on the side.

          Or get Russian deli takeout at European Foods, which is even closer. The 3100 block of Clement has several restaurants. Most of them are Asian (Japanese, Chinese, Burmese), but there's a Moroccan restaurant (El Mansour).

            European Food
            3038 Clement St, San Francisco, CA

            El Mansour
            3119 Clement St, San Francisco, CA 94121

        2. The Pacific Cafe opens at 5pm for dinner and you should be in line (yes a line starts forming early) by 4.30 so you can be in the first seating! As you wait,either in the small lobby area or on the sidewalk, you will be given a glass of the white house wine...and this glass will be refilled-to the top-as long as you are waiting for your table.

          This restaurant, which opened in the early 70s, remains consistant with the tasty fresh seafood, the decor, the friendly but efficient waitstaff. It is small with seats for about 30 at either 2 or 4 person booths...thus the wine while you wait. It is pleasant to chat with other diners while sipping your wine.
