Thanksgiving dinner in San Francisco?

Thanksgiving dinner in San Francisco?

We are 2 Australians who will be in San Francisco for Thanksgiving. We don't celebrate this holiday in Australia so we would LOVE to experience a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Can anyone recommend an authentic American restaurant where we can try all the traditional foods? We are staying near Fisherman's Wharf but open to travelling anywhere in the city.

Open table has a list of restaurants that are open with menus and you can reserve a table there

Here is a link for you with that list http://bit.ly/1eP7A9W

Feel free to read reviews of the restaurants though a special meal is different from the regular meal which is what the reviews are for and come back if you need help in deciding among a few please

While restaurants will provide the "traditional Thanksgiving foods" what really puts the "traditional" in Thanksgiving is cooking at home, having a big group of family and friends, watching some football, perhaps tossing one around in the backyard and finally stuffing oneself senseless with about a week's worth of food.

Hard to get that atmosphere in a restaurant.

Sorry I don't live close enough to invite you guys to our place for Thanksgiving!

There are tons of good restaurants on OpenTable and if you find some you like and then come back here with the list I am sure that folks will help you make a good choice!

When our daughter lived in San Francisco we managed to have a nice meal in a local restaurant for Thanksgiving because it was just too difficult to cook in a small apartment.

San Francisco is a great city!! Enjoy your trip!

This question has been asked more than once recently, and several people gave excellent suggestions from the "Traditional" to things like dinner with an "Italian twist", whatever that is. Check the links below and you should be able to narrow your search and then come back and ask about specific places.
