    We were just there last week and ate in the most wonderful restaurants. My favorites were Zuni Cafe and Rich Table. It is almost impossible to get antable at Rich Table as the reservations are made months before, but if you are not there yet, you should call and see if you get lucky. If you can't get a reservation, you can always sit at the bar. That is what we did and had a wonderful experience. Because we only had 3 days, we just stayed in the city. We shopped in Chestnut St, Hayes Valley, Lower Pacific Heights and walked around Haight-Ashbury ( my husband is a Greatfull Dead fan). We did not do it, but some people suggested riding a bike through the bridge and then taking the Ferry back . Another suggestion was Alcatraz, but the tours were sold out so if interested, reserved in advance. I hear it is a great tour.

    have fun !!

    Nomadic Matt forgot to mention to walk (or ride a bike) up to the Marin Headlands once you cross the Golden Gate Bridge for the best view of the city. You can then walk (or ride) down to Sausalito to grab lunch or ice cream and take the regular ferry back to Fisherman's Wharf.

    I had a nice lunch at Slanted Door, in the Ferry Building. The building is a must-do anyway!

    This one kills two birds with one stone: definitely check out the Ferry Building, takes care of a tourist attraction that is worth visiting, as well as full of food! If you're there on a Thursday or Saturday afternoon, hit up their farmers market.Ferry Buildingimage from flickr.comAny day that it's nice, you should visit Dolores Park. Stop off at the Bi-Rite Market to grab some picnic goods, Bi-Rite Creamery to get some ice cream (prepare for a long line), Ike's Place to get a sandwich (prepare for a long line or order online ahead of time), or El Farolito for a quesadilla suiza (or taco or burrito, but the suiza is my favorite) and sit and relax and picnic! To really get a taste for local flavor, you should come here on a weekend afternoon.

    While near the park, you should also explore the Mission District neighborhood. Tons of restaurants and shops. Walk on Mission, and Valencia between 16th and 24th St to see the most stores. Also walk on 16th and 24th St themselves. Tons of cool street art and good food.Mission District

    These spots are loved by locals and travelers alike and are worth while spots to explore. Have fun! :)

    Restaurants: Seven Hills IMHO Best Casual Italian food in a city full of great Italian Restaurants- Dinner only; Tin Vietnamese Cuisine excellent, authentic Vietnamese food and cheap- lunch or dinner; Foreign Cinema Great SF vibe and an eclectic menu of well-prepared dishes- Dinner nightly and a very good Sat. and Sunday brunch; Boulevard an upscale Classic.

    You must go to the Tadich Grill for authentic San Franciscan experience. The Top of the Mark is a great place to get a drink and see views of the city. But for a really wild and fun experience make a reservation for Forbes Island (415) 951-4900. Go to Pier 39 and wait for the Forbes Island shuttlecraft at Gate 4.

    I just saw that Chef Alex Alioto left Seven Hills and has opened a new restaurant called Plin, so I'm not sure Seven Hills is the same. The menu at Plin has some of his signature dishes.
