Family dinner in San Francisco

We're looking for a spot with charm in the city for 2 families with teens to meet on the Saturday night before Easter. Good food, but not a fancy atmosphere as we'll be coming off a day of touristing and will likely look a little ragged plus we will have had a high-end lunch. Am hoping for somewhere we can linger and talk over our meal.

I know Asian would be the typical go-to choice, but I will have come off 2 weeks in China. Mexican? Italian? Thank you for the advice.

  1. Park Chalet across from Ocean Beach. Good for large parties, low key and good atmosphere for teens. If it's nice out the teens can hang out on the patio.

    1. Consider Capp's Corner in North Beach...

        Capp's Corner is an excellent suggestion of Osso Buco fans!

        Depending on what area of town they will be, perhaps Park Chow would be a good choice.

        Or Inka's for great Peruvian cuisine.

          As the original poster sorry to be MIA. We're going to be in d'town San Francisco. I checked out your recs and am thinking Capp's Corner might be a good choice both location and charm-wise. I didn't want to lead you astray re the teens as they're all 18-19 and pretty foodie-ish. It sounds like Capp's would be great. Thanks so much.

            If they're foodie-ish, I'd suggest Barbacco -- very casual, very stylish, very delicious, reasonably priced.
