Best Birthday Brunch for a Group in San Francisco?

Looking for a great place to celebrate my fiancee's birthday with a Sunday brunch. We will have a group of people, probably 20 or so. Asian, fusion, buffet, or New American would all be good. Dim Sum would also be a fun option if there were a classy place that could accomodate a group. The ambiance and setting are more important than the type of food.

I am new to the Bay Area (from Boston), so I do not know the options well. Any help would be appreciated!

    Burger Bar could be a lot of fun; and I enjoyed my visit there, but I've heard reports of bad service for large parties

      Newly 3-star Zero Zero is serving brunch starting this weekend. They don't seem to have menus posted yet.

        I wasn't surprised that Zero Zero got 3 stars, given how much he likes Picco in Larkspur. I haven't been to Zero Zero, but I wasn't a huge fan of Picco, and Jonathan Kauffman's recent review of Zero Zero seemed to be in line with how I felt about Picco

          I really like the brunch at Andalu, they take reservations for brunch and usually do large groups for dinner so they would probably be able to do a large group at brunch as well. My favorite is the waffle with sauteed ham and mushrooms with cambazola fondue. But they do more standard items as well.

            If new to the area Yank Sing might be nice Dim Sum expericence for you. The rincon center location has nice ambiance and plenty of space.
