We will be in San Francisco in July and are looking for dinner suggestions.

I like Farallon for seafood, but at the behest of c oliver, will try Local's Corner. Tadich Grill's Cioppino is a classic local dish. And my current fave break the bank is Atelier Crenn. Millennium is great for vegetarian. If you're looking for a room with a view, it doesn't get much better than Cliff House for lunch (the food is not top-drawer, but it's good enough).
Have you been to the Cliff House lately, p? It's completely redone. We had a drink there at Christmas. As you say, the food has never been the draw (although starting in the 70s I got their hangover omelet of green chiles, chiles, onion, cheddar and bacon on a regular basis!) but the view is spectacular.
Oops, just noticed that OP will be there in July. Fog is almost omnipresent :)
