Restaurant close to BART for Sunday night

This seems so lame, but I can't think of a good place for dinner on Sunday night with a friend who will be coming into SF on BART. Here are the requirements:

1. Open for dinner on Sunday night.

2. My friend does not eat seafood.

3. Should be within three blocks of Embarcadero, Montgomery, or Powell BART Station. No further than that, please.

4. Should be quiet enough for conversation without raised voices.

All I can think of is Town Hall, which I like, but are there any other options?

I've eaten at Boulevard a lot recently, so I would rather not go there, and I am not interested in One Market.

Is there anything in the Ferry Building open for dinner on Sunday night?

Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. Ferry Building -no go
    We had a nice dinner and it was pretty quiet [by SF standards] at Campton Place. A nice room, good service and good food. Near BART.

    Annabelle's on Fourth would work too.

    John's Grill near Union Sq at 63 Ellis, another place.

    John's Grill
    63 Ellis Street, San Francisco, CA 94102

    Annabelle's Bar & Bistro
    68 Fourth Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

    Campton Place
    340 Stockton Street, San Francisco, CA 94108

    1. Slanted Door in the Ferry Building is open on Sunday nights, but it may be louder than you want in there. You could try RN74; I've only been to the bar area there, which is loud, but the dining area seemed much quieter, and it's about a block from Embarcadero BART.

      1. Marketbar in the Ferry Building is open Sunday night.

        1. Out of curiousity, why limit it to those BART stations? If you expand it to include the Mission ones, you have a ton more options, like Limon or Foreign Cinema, just to name a few

          1. 5-7 blocks from Montgomery St is Globe Restaurant and 5A5 Steakhouse.

            1. Cane Rosso in the Ferry Bldg is offering family style dinners for $25pp.

              1. Anchor and Hope and Town Hall are both open, same owners as Town Hall.

                Perbacco's now open Sundays. Ask to be seated in the area under the stairs for a quieter table.

                  As of last night Perbacco's web site said they were closed on Sundays and Open Table would not take a reservation for them on a Sunday.

                  1. re: Robert Lauriston

                    Correction, Anchor and Hope and Salt House are both open (same owners as Town Hall).

                    I must have entered the wrong date to get Perbacco in the list.

                  2. Campton Place seems like a good bet, reports on the DAT have sounded good. Is Ame too seafood-oriented? (A little further from BART than some of the suggestions, but no further than, say, Perbacco).

                    When I've been at Mexico DF on Sunday night, it has been quiet.

                      Perbacco is only two and a half *short* blocks from Embarcadero BART. It's closer than the Ferry Building, for example.

                        hmm...I defer to you on this. Maybe I have gotten there the wrong way or walked from Montgomery...

                    2. Salt House is open on Sunday. I don't think it meets the Boulevard standard, but it's got some decent dishes. I found it quiet the one time I went there but it was very late and dead - which I might expect on a Sunday, too. Good if you like oysters and/or cocktails.
