SF Dinner with friends

Hi, I'm trying to decide where to go for dinner with several friends in April. Looking for nice ambiance, not too noisy so we can chat, good drinks and food and easy parking or valet. Here are the restaurants I'm considering which have reservations available (please let me know if you have any other suggestions too):

Gitane (could only get a reservation on the patio, not sure if it might be too cold for an April night?)
Anchor and Hope

  1. A16's shout-to-be-heard noisy.

    I haven't found AQ too loud. Parking's usually easy since there's nothing else open at night.

    1. I love Gitane and they have heaters on the patio.

      Anchor & Hope is way too noisy for a nice conversation, I'm afraid - although I adore their food.
