Thurs and Fri. night dinners ...

Staying Aug. 9 and 10th at Marriott Union Square. Thinking of "Allegro Romano" for the Thursday night and "Farallon" for the Friday night.

Any other suggestions?

I feel we should eat at a seafood restaurant one night and did look at Sotto Mare in North Beach but not sure if we're up for standing and waiting 1/2 hour and ending up at the counter (there will be 4 of us).

Also considering Waterbar, One Market and Anchor & Hope.

We have had previous meals at Perbacco and at Rose Pistola (Rose Pistola was a let down last time).

  1. Farallon is decent formal seafood, with interesting decor. My impression is the Waterbar is about the same food quality, but is on the water and reads a little more "hip" than traditionally formal.

    Other places to consider:
    Anchor & Hope is a good seafood, modern semi-casual place
    I like Bar Crudo more (along the same vein as Anchor & Hope) but it's a longer cab ride away from union square.

    I don't know anything about Allegro Romano, but based on the menu/yelp reviews. I'd personally prefer something more interesting...maybe Quince? Or its more casual cousin Cotogna?
