Great! Ana Mandara is directly across the street form the Maritime Museum, and I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Scoma's is one of the best dinner restaurants on the wharf. Cioppino's is second best, and Aliotos isn't even an also-ran any more. Bistro Boudin is a great place for lunch near the Wax Museum if you're there around lunch time. They'll load you up with plenty of oven fresh sourdough bread. Be sure to buy some to take home. I buy mine by the six-pack!

They have a six loaf cardboard carrier that looks like a skinny pet carrier.

Ohhh! I didn't even think of buying fresh sourdough, sauces and such to bring home.. Definitely will be doing that. Sea Food won't make it... I'll check out all the recommendations. Ana's sounds great. Hope they have an online menu to look at.
Just want everyone to agree on a place and enjoy it. Thank you.

Munky.

Munk, your husbad is probably talking about a different sort of pork bun. I'd ignore him. I especially like the City's hunan province restaurants. Be prepared however for extremely rude waiters, that's just part of the odd appeal for customers.

For a good lay of the land, I strongly recommend Signal Hill.

Have fun at one of my most favorite cities in the world!

I'm sure he knows what he's talking about. I was the one who wasn't really listening to him
I'll stay out of the Hunan Province. Rude waiters and waitresses are the thing to be around here. That's why We don't eat out. I don't find that kind of behavior appealing. Won't pay for it..

Ok Sir,

It's looking like our best bets are
Bistro Boudin Menu I have to go to the bakery museum.
And Scoma's Scoma's Restaurant - Freshest Seafood in San Francisco - Family Traditions - Friendly Services - Since 1965 WOW! What a view! Both places have menu's nobody can complain about. It's a win, win situation..

This isn't exactly a pleasure trip. Long drive the first day. Big appointment the following afternoon.

Scoma's would be absolutely perfect after our appointment. Nice and relaxing.
I'll get pics..

Munky.

I don't know if you can do it today, but I recall that in 1969 my fiance and I would buy a wheel of segmented sour dough bread and a couple of paper sack's worth of giant prawns from the street vendors. We'd take a bite of soft, warm sour dough followed by a bite of hot, salty, steamed prawn and revel with delight as we strolled along the Fisherman's Wharf area. To this day, that was one of the best meals I've ever had!

We love San Francisco. We ate at an excellant Chinese restaurant in China town, but I couldn't tell you the name of it. Scoma's is our altime favorite.

I think Gumps is the big store someone was talking about.

For a day trip we took Amtrak to Yosemite and really enjoyed it. We did the Alcatraz tour and although I did not think I would enjoy that, I did. Very informative. We also enjoyed a tour of Saucalito. There are many tours in the Wharf area. Very many things to do and places to eat.

We always bring home bread and chocolates from the chocolate factory.

Have fun!

Pork buns are available at a lot of the little bakeries in Chinatown.

Word to the wise: Parking is very expensive and almost as hard to find as NYC. Leave your car at the hotel and buy a MUNI passport. They're available at several locations. Just ask your hotel concierge. You can get a 3 day MUNI passport that alows you to ride all public transportation except BART, including all cable cars, for 21 bucks each, about the cost of two parking lots. That's the first thing I do when I get off the BART from the train station at Market and Powell. I haven't driven to San Francisco in years and I am less than 400 miles away.

We like the Tadich Grill on California Street. It's been there since the Gold Rush Days. We avoid the lunch hours because the place is always packed with locals enjoying lunch.

I lived on California Street once. Right near the very end of it, where the little store was that got robbed once a week.

Great place to live!
