Upscale Kid-Friendly Restaurant in SF?

I have some friends visiting San Francisco from S Cal. They have a 4-year-old who is pretty well behaved. They asked for a recommendation for one nice place they could go in SF for dinner. I don't have kids so i have no ideas. Anyone out there know a good place that is good with accommodating children? No chain restaurants. Looking for something they can't find in LA but i don't want them stuck sitting in some dark corner near the bathroom.... Thanks in advance for your help!

    Here's a good thread via search:

    1. It may not be upscale enough for your friends, but Nopa is great for kids.

      560 Divisadero St, San Francisco, CA 94117

      1. Can you be a little more specific about what you/they mean by upscale? I assume they don't want their four-year-old to sit through a 2+ hour multi-course tasting menu.

        1. Chenery Park is a white tablecloth place with Kids Night on Tuesday evenings. The reviews seem good. We had dinner with my 18 month old granddaughter at Social Kitchen and Brewery. It was so loud in there that the baby screamed for fun and no one noticed! Food is definitely brewery fare.

          1. My parents (in their 70s) visit SF a couple times a year with my niece who is now 8. Foreign Cinema has been a big hit for both age groups and they are great with my niece. I think a well behaved 4 year old would be fine there. The food is solid and the space is terrific.
