SF Restaurants with private room?

bropaul Oct 12, 2012 01:50 PM

I'll be in SF in November and am looking for a good restaurant to host a dinner for about 20-25. This will be mostly men. I suppose "American/or Contemporary" would work best for a diverse crowd. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Thanks everybody. Your suggestions have been very helpful. I'm an Opentable member but didn't realize that the site had that feature. It's been very useful so far. When I narrow my search, maybe you can all comment.

      San Francisco Travel (associated with the Convention & Visitors Bureau) has a search page for finding private dining rooms and banquet facilities.

        Here's some info: http://www.sfpdv.com/view_all_rooms.html

        Epic Roasthouse is a good choice, with a great location. Or Town Hall or Wayfare Tavern fit the American/Contemporary category.

        Check back here if you want confirmation or opinions on a specific possible choice.

          That link is pay-to-play (cooperative promotion / advertising). There are a lot more on OpenTable (which is also pay-to-play).


          Lulu's private rooms are nice.

            sfpvd is def where restaurants in SF pay to list them selves and in return get data on hits, etc. however EVERy restaurant in Sf with private dinning uses them.
            so while they do pay to be listed there, it is still a good resource for a massive list of private rooms in sf

              The 37 places on sfpdv.com constitute only a small fraction of the restaurants in SF with private dining. Opentable lists over a hundred and there are lots of others that aren't on either list, e.g. Gary Danko, Kokkari, Incanto, and Old Mandarin Islamic.
