Great food, drinks and atmosphere in SF

Hello all,

Please recommend a dinner spot in San Francisco for two couples in our mid-thirties (visiting from Orange County). First and foremost, we're looking for somewhere with amazing food, but also a fun atmosphere (not stuffy - no jackets) where we can spend a couple of hours enjoying dinner and drinks. We are open to cuisine, but are less interested in Japanese, Vietnamese, Chinese for this particular dinner.

Friends have recommended the following:

Cotogna (my first choice but can't get a res)
Wayfare Tavern

We'd like to keep the cost to maybe $60 - $75 for food (not inclusive of tax and tip).

Also, if there are any places that offer a great tasting menu, we'd be willing to go higher.

Many thanks in advance for the input. If you need more info or direction, please let me know.

6 Claude Lane, San Francisco, CA 94108
