There are so many restaurants and I presume you want great food as well. I know you mention Dinner but if you have a chance to go to the Garden Court Restaurant for its brunch -- that to me is a great holiday treat.

As far as decor goes, hotels in general have an overall greater decor than most restaurants

Now for Dinner how about the restaurant at the campton place ?

Jardiniere is a great restaurant -- perhaps that is nice restaurant to visit a week before Christmas

Other than that there are fab restaurants in SF and perhaps if you tell us what cuisine you like, that may help

At the risk of sounding like someone else on here... I had dinner at Boulevard last weekend and was absolutely charmed by the atmosphere and their Christmas decor. Pricing is on the higher side, but my group all enjoyed our food. Really nice drinks too.

Boulevard is lovely, we also very much enjoyed our meal at Chaya Brasserie in the same area. Enjoy your time in San Francisco! :)

We love love love the Garden Court restaurant in Palace Hotel for holiday charm, I promise you won't regret it! (Did I say love already?)

And ummm... we are talking about the Garden Court inside the Palace Hotel right? :-)

We usually book a pre-Christmas dinner at Boulevard due to their lovely decorations. It's an Art Nouveau-style room that they line with swags of greens, wreaths in all the windows, etc.

I also like Big Four, but it's a bit lower-key and subtle in its decor.

I love the look of the Garden Court, but don't like the food.

(Apparently old-time and traditional is what feels Christmassy to me....)

I have never been to Boulevard for holiday dinner, I should check it out this year. Their food is always excellent - perhaps we will switch it up this year!

Love the Garden Court in the Palace Hotel during the holidays. If not for dinner, lunch, Saturday Afternoon Tea or Sunday Brunch are very good.
