Need a place for a great steak with vegetarian options

I'm new to the area and I need to take a colleague out for a great steak, but there are also vegetarians in our party. I'm looking for a place that does meat well, but also offers veggie entree options (not just a plate of side dishes) Thanks!

  1. Slow Club, Universal Cafe, Seasons at the Four Seasons all come to mind.

    Robert has a separate steakhouse thread. You might look at some of the menus and see if any of them have enough other interesting options

    Slow Club
    2501 Mariposa Street, San Francisco, CA 94110

    Seasons Restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel
    757 Market St, San Francisco, CA 94103

    1. I don't think any of the steakhouses have more than one vegetarian entree.

      Lulu might work. Anyone been there recently?

      2. Take a look at Kokkari...been to sister restaurant in Palo Alto & love their lamb. They also have great veg. apps & it looks like they do have one veg. entree.


        1. Here's an old thread about non-steakhouse steaks that might be helpful.


          1. How about Lark Creek Steak. Always at least one vegetarian entree and lots of good sides.

            1. Where did you end up and how did it work out?

              For future reference, Seasons' current online menu's entrees are four steaks, three fish, and the usual one vegetarian.

                Thank you everyone for the great suggestions! We ended up at Wayfare Tavern which had a little bit for everyone. The steak eater surprised me by ordering the BBQ Ribs special which he said was excellent. The vegetarian option was a ravoli with zucchini and fried squash blossoms on top. It had promise but was woefully underseasoned. We had a gooey brown butter cake for dessert which was delish.
