I'm eloping with my fiance in SF next month on a Wednesday and I want to find a great space for dinner for us and our small wedding party (6 people total). We were hoping to find a private room or semi-private space, but I'm thinking that might be outside of our budget ($800)... ? So if not a private room, we're looking for something that isn't too casual, but still feels a little boisterous (we don't want the intimacy of a Quince or Chez Panisse here!). Some place really nice, but still really fun.
Here's what we're thinking so far:
54 Mint: fiance's been there and likes it.
Masa's: calling tomorrow about their room, but guessing it will be above our budget.
Zuni cafe: great food but a little too casual.
Absinthe: a possibility, but a little close to SF City Hall.
Any other suggestions?
