Dinner near Golden Gate theatre

My teenage son and I will be seeing Fiddler on the Roof mid-week and looking for a good pre-theater dinner. He likes a wide variety of foods but prefers to order steak, pork, chicken, pasta or fish and chips when we are out. He also loves clam chowder. I will probably order fish, possibly meat but cannot eat pasta, unfortunately.

I am thinking about Fish and Farm. A good choice? We have been to the Grand Cafe a number of times and like it, but want to try something new. We also like Hayes Street Grill, but it's a bit far from the theatre, and once again, want to try something new. Thanks!

  1. I enjoyed Fish and Farm the one time I went. Some items were stellar, others less so. Wide range of prices, and the favorites were not necessarily the expensive ones. (Good, reasonably priced burger! Nicely done fish and chips.) I'm reluctant to post based on one visit, but we had a very enjoyable meal there.

    1. Farmer Brown is at the corner of Mason and Turk Street - one block from the Golden Gate Theatre - for another option.

      1. We've been to Fish and Farm at least once (maybe twice?) and while they try hard they just don't succeed IMO. One problem is that it's a weird awkward space.

        I would recommend

        Chez Papa Mint Plaza

        Kuleto's on Powell

        or Lark Creek Steak at Bloomingdales
