San Francisco - one semi-splurge restaurant?

Jump to last reply

I know there are so many discussions of SF restaurants here, but honestly with all the recommendations it's a bit overwhelming! I'm going with a friend the first week of June. We are, in general, just as happy with great casual food as a fancier restaurant, so don't tend to spend as much as many of you on dinner. But we're looking for one "splurge" restaurant, hopefully with a great view, while we're there - I'd say ~$30 or less for an entree. My friend was thinking somewhere around Fisherman's Wharf for the views, but I know that's such a touristy area and I'm hesitant. (She's been once, briefly; I've never been to SF at all.) Any recommendations would be great!

In terms of cuisine, I'd say Indian is out; I'm a recovering picky eater, so the more unusual (to Americans) Asian food would be intimidating to me. Otherwise I think we're fairly open. Neither of us are huge seafood lovers (though we like it fine), but we're from landlocked states and realize that seafood by the bay is a very different experience! So seafood would be fine too. Thanks in advance for helping me narrow things down! And any recommendations for non-splurge restaurants would be great too.
