    The one thing I see missing, that you may want to consider, is San Francisco is in the midst of an awesome Italian restaurant scene (including but not limited to):

    Cotogna
    Flour + Water
    Perbacco/Barbacco
    La Ciccia

    As both Gary Danko + La Folie are French inspired, I would sub one of those out for the above.

    Here is a recent thread on San Mateo/Redwood City and Environs (warning it's a summary of restaurant options - not so much a "the best" list):

        If you are having Swan's oysters at the beginning of your trip - and Anchor & Hope with great seafood along the way - I don't think you need to hit up Hog Island for brunch unless you REALLY really want redundant oysters and not much else.

        I'd consider other brunch/lunch places like Canteen or Dottie's True Blue Cafe. If it is one last, solid lunch you are looking for, there are more substantial meals that I think would be more memorable than Hog Island...
