Any recommendation for good restaurants in SF?

Hello everyone, one of my new year resolution for 2014 is to explore the best restaurants in SF and peninsula. Yes, a very tasty resolution :)
I figured there are lots of experts on this forum. Any recommendations?

    If you see someone whose taste looks like yours, click the username in their post and see if they've entered a list of favorite restaurants, then search for posts on those places.

      Nice. Thanks. The active posts on the board seem to be pretty random on topics. That's why I asked. :)

        Your question, as stated, is akin to asking what you should buy at Wal-Mart. Casual dining? High-End? Ethnic? Give us some direction and you'll get much better results. There's no point in someone recommending you go to Coi if you're either not interested in that style of dining and/or not wanting to spend that much on a meal.

    2. If you are looking for high-end dining, the restaurants with two Michelin stars may be a good starting point.
      They are all pretty good in their own ways and there aren't any three stars in SF or the Peninsula.

          1. You know there are thousands of restaurants in SF and peninsula. You can go to a different one for each meal of each day of the year and never repeat the same place. So your first order of business is to narrow your focus (price range, cuisine, location, etc), then go from there. So one question may be, what are some of the better Italian restaurants in North Beach? Where do I go for best dim sum in the Peninsula? Etc.
