Had a thread earlier to get some tips on where to eat for my honeymoon in SF(currently living in the east bay and fiancee will be visiting here for the first time). The dates are for February. Here's what I got so far:

8:55pm: Arrive at SFO
10:30: Arrive at Union Square(taxi? Bart?)
11:00: Dinner: Katana-ya(open till 1am) or Hana Zen (open till 12am)

7:30am Breakfast???
8:30 Ride Cable Car(Powell Hyde line) to Fishermans Wharf
9:00 Explore Fishermans Wharf : Buena Vista Café for Irish Coffee
10:00 Alcatraz
12:30pm Lunch: Boudin and other food around the Wharf??
1:30 Aquarium of the Bay
2:30: Shopping around Union Square
5:00: Hotel to change for dinner
6:00pm: Cocktails and Foie Gras at La Folie (opens @ 530)
7:45: Steak at Harris’s Jazz Lounge

10am: Breakfast/Lunch: Random food at the Ferry Building (Opens @ 10am)
1pm: Golden Gate Bridge
2:30pm: Golden Gate Park
5pm: 1st Dinner at Cha Cha cha
730pm: 2nd Dinner at Campton Place Bar??

8am: Breakfast (in hotel?)
9: Chinatown
11: North Beach Sotto Mare or Tony’s Pizza Napoletana
Mexican: Colibri(Union Square) or Don Pisto’s (North Beach)
Afternoon: Going to Napa

We will be staying in Union Square at the Parc55. Originally i was gonna go to Waterbar one of the nights. I did check it out for a snack today and it doesn't seem that great at all. The tank is actually just a water filled pole and the place is really noisy.

Main questions I have for everyone is if they think everything is timed out well enough that it won't be rushed. Also, need some breakfast spot recs. We will have three times, to eat breakfast. I am not much of a breakfast person but I figure one day would have to be pancakes and waffles and one day something more like lox and bagels.

For the rest of the food, what is decent around fishermans wharf? After searching the board it seems that everyone says its a tourist trap to eat anywhere near fishermans wharf(other than Gary Danko). However, for lunch I figure Boudin would be good and I know my fiancee wants to eat crab around there. Any ideas?

Finally, Frommers recommended going to Golden Gate Park and checking out Cha Cha Cha after. Reviews on seem good. However, I figure Campton would be a nice place to have another light meal and drinks later at night. Unless there is any better option near union square. Don't want to have to travel very far. Would it be worth it to go to Soma or Nob hill by taxi for better food? Would still want some type of more lounge type atmosphere with good food, drinks and dessert.

Thanks in advanced, this board never fails.
