I'm looking for a nice restaurant for a special dinner (OK, it's my birthday).
1. In the Castro or Noe Valley
2. Not Thai or Indian Food
3. Quiet enough for conversation without raised voices
4. Able to accomodate a group of 12 people. A private dining area or room would be great, but probably not realistic for this part of town.
5. Fabulous desserts.
Money is no object.
Thanks for any suggestions.
