Looking for a great restaurant in SF for a birthday dinner

I am new to the city and am looking for a great place, with amazing food to go for my birthday. Any price range will do.

  1. most importantly is going to be the number of people in your party (and with that, the higher the number, the harder it will be to find amazing food)

    1. What type of food? We're going to Chapeau for my husband's bday.

      1. Cuisine? Ambiance? # in party? Cocktails or wine?

        1. you can go in any direction with this...I've had big groups at Kokkari and it's always been a hit and not super pricey...

          If you have a large enough group, there's a private room at Spruce that's really nice...although it would be a set menu at $75 or $85 per person (before alcohol).

              Apparently they have several.
              Tucked along tree lined Sacramento Street in the historic Presidio Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, Spruce offers a warm and elegant dining experience. We are pleased to present several private dining options perfect for every event. From a casual luncheon to an elegant cocktail reception or a formal, sit -down dinner our Library seats up to 20 guests, the Shiraga Room comfortably seats up to 14 guests and our Laurel Room seats up to 40 guests.

                i didn't say i didn't believe they had one, i know they have one, i was just wondering if anyone knew what part of the restaurant it was in

                  It says they have several. Call and ask for a floor plan.

            2. re: vis

              The original post says nothing about a large group.

            3. Its going to be about 6. I was open to all food. Drinks are secondary

                  Range. Delfina. Zinnia, and Aziza are possibilities at reasonable prices.
                  Higher up the ladder is La Folie.

                2. Had a 40th bday dinner last Friday @ Isa over in the Marina. Was fun and tasty and they seemed to handle a large drunken table very well. Was good to get out of our usual Mission / Potrero haunts...
