Low decibel restaurants in San Francisco

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

First, we don't eat out much in San Francisco.    We are out of town much, and have found kinds of small restaurant, passionate chefs, loyal following AND a kind of civilized calm in the dining room.    Not the club or party atmosphere that is to prevalent in SF.    And the tab at these places is as digestible as the innovative cooking.

 

SO, are there these kinds of places in SF today?     We'd love to be able to dine as well at home as we do abroad.

Oh my! Decibel in a city like SF....?  Do tell if you find some. Often the noise can become a caccoon and you just interact with your dining companion tuning the fray out.

That's a rather depressing take on expectations of dining out, no?     $100 a head and ambiance that one has to tune out.

(I love your dog!)      Yes, there are many (expensive) destination restaurants with minimum noise, but i am looking for small, casual, chef-driven dining rooms.   

Suggested elsewhere and meeting this criteria is Firefly.    On the opposite end of the continuum is Pearl 6101, which blasts music AND has little sound-abating finishes.

I found Greens in the Fort Mason area to be quiet enough to have a long conversation over a good meal. Admittedly, that was at lunch.
