Nine Wonderful Private Dining Options in San Francisco and Oakland

By

The Bay Area is back open. Now that you’re vaxxed and ready to get back to restaurants, you might want to celebrate with a small group of your friends and loved ones. Private dining rooms are a nice, intimate way to gather together and let restaurants take care of you. The below are some good, delicious ideas and options for your PDR consideration, from hidden rooms to upstairs alcoves.

(And do note that restaurants’ group policies vary — some opt for a set menu, other don’t; some are bookable via Resy, while others encourage you to reach out directly.)
