Birthday Dinner for Dad- help- Dovetail, Marea or Tocqueville???

Taking dad out for 70th birthday dinner. He fancies himself a foodie of sorts. Trying to decide between Dovetail, Marea and Tocqueville. I've haven't been to any of them. Looking for some inspiration/thoughts/etc. Please let me know of your positive experiences at any of these places...

  1. I've had positive experiences at all three but I think Tocqueville would have the most accessible menu. If your dad likes seafood Marea would be a great choice.

    Dovetail is similar to Tocqueville in terms of its seasonal, contemporary American menu with a French sensibility, but the food is a bit uneven and the room is not as pretty.
