We will be on vacation in San Francisco, on my wifes 40th birthday. As a food lover she would like us all to go out as a family to a restaurant fitting the occasion and I was thinking of trying to book Gary Dankos, as Zagat lists it as "child friendly". Our 2 kids are aged 10 and 8 and they have eaten in smart restaurants before so Im not worried about their behaviour or whether they will eat the food, its more how welcoming the restaurant will be. In my experience the smarter the restaurant the snootier tends to be the staff (and clientele) with regard to kids.
I'd welcome any feedback from San Francisco hounds on kids and Gary Danko or alternatively suggestions on other restaurants suitable for a family celebration.
Thanks in advance.
