  • Caprice Restaurant
    The massive plate windows of The Caprice's main dining room afford panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, and the rolling hills of San Francisco's East Bay. According to Gayot, these windows have overlooked the same bayside view for more than 55 years. As sailboats effortlessly glide across water within full view of the tables, diners can enjoy a classically inspired menu of New American cuisine that draws almost as much inspiration from French culinary techniques as it does from the nearby ocean waters. The Zagat-rated eatery's menu brims with a variety of seafood dishes. Appetizers of oysters on the half shell with cranberry mignonette appear alongside entrees of halibut with a sundried tomato-almond butter sauce, quinoa, and wilted spinach. At the same time, the chefs' French inclinations shine through in dishes such as the duck breast a l'orange and the rack of lamb with mint-tinged balsamic sauce. Although the international wine list helps guests complete their meal with well paired bottle, Fodor's says that "polishing off the warm chocolate cake with almond ice cream while gazing out at the sunset and porpoises bobbing in the waves below is a near perfect end to the evening."

  • Darios Pizza
    A slanted wood ceiling and large windows lend Dario's Pizza Restaurant an airy feel, which chefs fill with the appealing scents of 28 types of pizza baking in ovens. Pies boast a variety of topping combinations, such as the Cubano's mix of sausage, pineapple, and sweet red peppers, or the Margherita's simple blend of roma tomatoes and fresh basil. For fork-twirling fare, the chefs construct heaping plates of fettuccine alfredo and spaghetti with pesto and clams, both side-kicked by homemade bread and a choice of soup or salad. A bartender supplements tasty morsels with fragrant pours of draft beer and an assortment of red and white wines. Meals take place along the first floor's wooden tables, or upstairs, where a lofted area hoists homey décor and longer tables for private events or an invisible friend's extended family.
