Seeking private dining room for ~12, SF

I'm looking for recs on a restaurant in the SOMA/Convention Center/Union Square/Embarcadero areas with a small private dining room for ~10-12 people. It seems like many of the private rooms are intended for much bigger groups like 40 or 80 (and are $$$$). This is for a working dinner, so it is important to have a private space.

I see Farallon does have a smaller room and know it was a good option many years back, but how about now? Other places I should look at?

      I've seen Wayfare's 14-seat room, it's lovely.

      1. Kokkari has a small room for 12

        1. I've had good experiences with Private Dining at Harris Steakhouse, although it's near all of your designated neighborhoods. Old school but great food and service. Here's a link to their private dining rooms: the boardroom and the library are for smaller groups. They try to do 2 seatings each evening but will sell you the room for the night if you need it.
