4 days in San Francisco

In April, my wife, son (11) and I will be in the area, Sunday through Wednesday, and would appreciate some restaurant recommendations. We'll be staying at the W; proximity to hotel isn't must. Seafood, Italian, Chinese,Latin, New American, Gastropubs are all possibilities. Very high end/pricey experimental places would be a no. Good draft selection would be a plus.
Second request: casual restaurants/markets in Napa.
Thanks very much

    Yank Sing, Great Eastern for dim sum...latter will be less expensive. My girls love Perbacco for Italian (Zero Zero is another more casual option).

    Thursday morning at Ferry Building. Also, if you find yourself needing something close to hotel, try Thirsty Bear. Fang may be another for "need something"; haven't been.

      Thirsty Bear looks like a great casual place. I think we'll also check out Fang. Thanks

        Perbacco in my book is high end and a bit fancy. Barbacco next door a little more kid-friendly, I think.

          Barbacco seats patrons either at the bar (communal - you're rubbing elbows with those next to you) or in high bar style seating on high tables. Just wanted to mention that because I'm not sure if that would be suited for an 11 year old. Never seen kids there and I go about once a month.

            Barbacco's non-bar seating is standard height.


            I've never seen kids there either, which isn't surprising since it feels like a bar to me.

        Casual = Grace's Table
        Markets = Oxbow.

              Right. I thought that sounded wrong.

                Beer selection looks great and the food as well. Thanks
