My husband and two boys (both 9) will be traveling to SF for vacation (coming from Minneapolis). We'll be staying near the wharf, with no car and only from T-Fri (bummer, no Ferry building farmer's market.).
We're not interested in fancy, but do want to eat good food! I'm interested in good 'neighborhood type' restaurants. My definition: relatively casual, not too expensive (not that important), would be reasonable with kids, and in the Union square/embarcadero/north beach/fisherman's wharf type area. Italian and seafood would be priorities. I'd also like to do Chinese.
We used to live in the south bay ~10 years ago and my husband fondly remembers an Italian place called Cafe Sport. I can't find it- is there something similar now?
A few places I found from other posts that looked good to me were:
Dotties, Mamas, Tadich Grill, Poc Chuc, Yank Sing, 1550 Hyde
