Looking for a SF restaurant to take my husband to for his birthday this Saturday. Price range around $100-$150 for both of us.

    What kind of experience are you looking for? What kind of food do you like? What restaurants have you tried that you like or don't like?

      Sorry :) My husband likes Asian foods, French, American. Anything really except Itallian or Mexican which are my faves! I took him to Aziza last year and it was good but didn't blow us away. We live in the East Bay so don't really get into the city much. Our favorite Easy Bay restaurant is Rivoli.

      For $100-150, you can pick quite a few places but how about Jardiniere? They are a bit on the pricier side but nice cozy atmosphere, excellent food and nice cocktails.

        I would say Range or Firefly would be closest to Rivoli on this side of the bay. Jardiniere is more formal and maybe a bit stuffy. If cocktails are part of the equation than I would say Range.
