Help me with my SF, Napa, and Big Sur dinner picks?

I have narrowed down dining choices for a special trip in August with my husband, and would love input!

Preferences: Healthier, lighter food (Californian/Italian/Mediteranean/Japanese--yes. French/Chinese--not so much). Great food is a must, but ambiance is important too. We don't want places so loud we cannot hear each other. Sitting next to each other is a huge bonus (but not a must). I would like to mix things up somewhat, while still staying true to our preferences.

AQ or Boulevard.
Would also consider Prospect or Bar Agricole.
*We would prefer to be conveniently located to the Market Street & 3rd/4th Street area this evening--either walking distance or a brief cab ride.

Quince for a Birthday Dinner.
Would also consider Perbacco or Atelier Crenn.

The Farm at Carneros Inn.
*(Probably not subject to change unless somewhere else very close to the Inn.)

*We prefer a Yountville restaurant for this night.

Would also consider Redd Wood.
*We prefer a Yountville restaurant for this night.

Wednesday/Big Sur:
Big Sur Bakery

Thursday/Big Sur:
Sierra Mar at Post Ranch Inn
