Monsieur Benjamin on the west side of Gough St., just south of Grove St. We enjoyed an excellent a la carte French dinner on New Year's Eve, at a price that was surprisingly more affordable than the prix fixe menus offered by other restaurants in the Civic Center-Hayes Valley area.

The weather was cool, but the symphony hall got pretty warm.. I wore a pretty dress and brought a cashmere wrap to toss over my knees to stay warm during the concert..

depending on events around civic center, traffic and parking can be really difficult, so give yourself plenty of time to find parking and bring some cash, because if there is only limited parking all garages will accept cash only!

Please remember not to talk during live performances. The only bad part of the night was the woman sitting behind me who "assumed" none of us could hear here when she was commenting throughout the first piece.

Plan on parking blocks away from event. Bring sweater or jacket as the weather changes from one moment to the next.
