Restaurant Selection Advice....Help!

edtempleton | Feb 15, 201111:39 PM

So my in-laws are coming into town (8 of us total) and are asking us to pick a restaurant for my mother-in-law's birthday as a surprise. Problem is we just moved here and have no idea where to go.

A little about them:
- Father-in-law is paying for everything and said price is not an issue;
- He specifically asked for somewhere really beautiful or scenic and would prefer a quiet restaurant so we don't have to shout over each other;
- The parents are not adventurous eaters and can be picky about their food;
- They probably care more about service and atmosphere than food (although all of the kids would likely disagree).

We live in SOMA, but anywhere in the city would be fine.

Need to impress stuffy!
