    You are providing no information to allow anyone to make a suggestion. What do you like? Where are you staying? How much do you want to spend.? Will you have a car? Will you take public transportation e.g. BART? Etc, Etc, Etc.*

      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 :)

          Have not been there recently (well, not since my grandmother took me to lunch there when I was a college student in 1968), but many times before, and the view has never changed. And FWIW, I've always loved the fog in SF, even if it conceals the seals.

            Bob and I love fog also but wouldn't go to CH if it's totally foggy. You can't see the building from the car :)

          Somehow I think Michael Bauer's rec for Local's Corner was what prompted your res :)

            Nope, haven't read it and won't until after we've eaten there.

              Oh my. I think you really should. What if it's really not your 'style'? It's certainly as far from Farallon style-wise as you could ever get. Caveat emptor, my friend :)

                Their menu is interesting, and I think it would appeal to my son. (I'm always happy to see sturgeon on the menu.)
