There's no 'safe' place to park given the location of the theatre. You're better off to take Bart.

Check out Sam's Diner. It's right down the street & quite an extensive menu.

Hadn't been to the Orpheum in a few years so discovering the nice big parking lot across from the theater is now an apartment building under construction was a bit of a shock. Back to the usual car unfriendly attitudes of San Francisco which is OK if you live there but after driving 70 miles from out of town running around in circles 10 minutes from showtime trying to find a parking space and finally paying $40 for 3 hours of parking makes coming to the city less and less likely. So SF becomes less of an attraction as they are finding out with new, and even old franchises moving to San Jose or elsewhere. The America's Cup was a huge spectator failure and you can anticipate more of the same. And don't tell me about the train or the bus. That's not a fun night out.

there are parking lots nearby and pretty decent metered street parking (you don't have to pay after 6pm)

We had a delicious dinner at Saluma - on McAllister across the street from the Asian Musuem.
