We had a fine dinner in Acqua about two weeks ago which is one of the few nicer restaurants in that area open on Monday night. Also, The Dining Room at the RC two blocks away (where we stayed while our friend was booked into the Omni) is supposed to be outstanding.

Both of these restaurants are expensive, with Acqua slightly less so.

We had booked a non-club room at the RC and they were kind enough to upgrade us to a jr. suite, but even though we weren't there for long, we did experience a few minor service lapses.

For cheap eats, make sure you skip Grant and walk an extra block to Stockton which parallels it, or try the streets which cross Grant. For moderately priced yet excellent seafood, try Sam's or Tadich's (which don't take reservations although there clearly are exceptions if they know you well, which has never applied to me).
