My friends and I had dinner at Max's Opera Cafe. Its an old school diner mostly with elderly population but I enjoyed myself. The food is okay. I think its just a good option for a meal before the ballet as it's only 3 blocks away.

The Muni goes upto 3 blocks away from the venue. I also found street parking 3 blocks away for free so that worked out too.
