Used Parking Panda to book a parking space which turned out to be at the Westin Hotel, which turned out when we got there to be having a strike, so that was awkward. It's a very steep walk from the Westin up to the Marines Memorial; if you aren't spry allow extra time.
We drove and found parking on the street. The show was at 8pm so finding parking wasn't so bad.
Marines' Memorial Theatre is accesible by BART, short walk. There are several lots near-by, costly, but, I prefer Sutter-Stockton Garage for reasonable priced parking
A few blocks from the theatre & a short walk from the Powel Street BART, is Puccini & Pinetti @ 129 Ellis. Reservations for dinner begin at 5 pm. Ask for a booth & dine on seafood, meat & or pasta, coupled with inspired cocktails & ending with affogatto (espresso + gelato).

Good for young children.
I took an Uber and Surge pricing was absurd after the show. A co-rider said he toggles between Lyft and Uber to find the best prices during peak times. Good to know.
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
Right around the corner from the show is a very small Sushi Bar called Akiko's - 542 A Mason St San Francisco - Miso Soup, Sushi and Tea for the both of us.
Since my dad is an ex-Marine, he wanted to eat at Leatherneck. The food was good, the service was a little slow considering they weren't busy, but Dad liked it and that was all that matters.
Parking is Tres Cher. $35.00 for parking across the street....
We ate at Italian restaurant next door to the Marines theatre; it was reasonable and good.
Eat at Ceaario's right next door, it was yummy and reasonably priced.
If you are coming from the East Bay, take BART to the Powell Street station and walk a few blocks to the theater.
Eat at the Hotel's Leatherneck Steakhouse before the show, even on a Sunday when there is only the bar menu...excellent... If u have time be sure to visit the museum & library on the 11th floor...very much worth the time!
Seating in the theater was tight, no leg room
