Hi. I haven't spent much time in SF in the past couple years, but I'm coming back for an extended weekend in June and wanted advice for 4 dinners and maybe a couple lunches. We're staying on points at the Palace Hotel and my wife hasn't been since she was a child so I want to give her a great experience.
In the past, my favorites have been

Fifth Floor
Perbacco
Waterbar
Boulevard (I stopped going for a while after they made me wait with a res, but now go again)
Park Tavern
Ame
Baker and Banker
Orson
Firefly

I'm happy to return to any of those or to get your suggestions for new places that I don't know. I went to Gary Danko years ago and didn't like it. I've heard Spruce is good.

My favorite cuisine is innovative, including molecular gastronomy, but really anything that is great will work just fine. I'm sensitive to garlic and hot peppers and allergic to crab and tuna so some places (eg, Stinking Rose) would not be a good choice for us.

Thanks for your thoughts!
