Thanksgiving weekend, tough to get a res? Need some help for our mystery trip....

My wife and I are in charge of organizing this year's mystery trip. Five couples, and we plan the location and the itinerary. We bring everyone to the airport (Toronto), and off we go. I've been getting more proactive in the last week on planning our evenings as we approach the 30 day window for reservations, but when I do some clicking around at the popular spots using open table nothing seems available. I'm searching using 4 or 6 people, and if anything is available it's after 9. Am I doing something wrong?

Love to hear ideas on where we can take a group without being treated like a group. For example, would love to go back to slanted door, but the prix fixe isn't ideal. We're early 40s, fun group, not all of us are foodies, but we all enjoy a good time. Budget isn't that sensitive for most of us, but as organizer I don't want to blow the lid every night. Also would love to hear of any suggestions for after dinner drinks. We're staying at the Fairmont, and we'll either cab around or use our Muni passes on the street cars for the tourist vibe. We're in SF for dinner Thurs through Sat.

thx
