Restaurant near Mark Hopkins Hotel ?

We would like to have dinner within a couple blocks of the Mark Hopkins hotel so we can walk to the Top of the Mark for an after dinner drink. Prefer Continental or Italian cuisine as I'm not a real adventurous eater. Thank you.

My friend who lives nearby is always recommending Nob Hill Cafe. Reviews are positive on yelp:

love - The MH is at the top of a very steep hill with expensive real estate, so there are not a lot of restaurant choices. Perhaps find a nice place in North Beach then take the cable car up the hill to the Top of the Mark.

I did find a restaurant that appears to be close to Top of the Mark. It's Rue Lepic @ 900 Pine Street. Top of the Mark is listed as 1 Nob Hill.

It's difficult to know the walking distance between these 2 locations plus now knowing it's an uphill walk :>(

I will look at Nob Hill Cafe as well. Thanks so much.

lo - I have not eaten there, but from Pine to California is only one block, and I believe that block has steps in the sidewalk (yes, it is steep). You'll love it!

Only a block ___downhill to get there but a steep walk back.

But it's only a block.

But if we cab from Top of the Mark back to our hotel don't we only have to walk 1 way downhill after dinner from Pine to Top of Mark ? Now I'm getting my uphills and downhills mixed up !

Entrance to the Mark is at California and Mason.

Have heard some good things about Rue Lepic -- as Oskar says it's one block (very steep) from Pine to California on Mason.
