We were a group of 4 and we all went for the "Create your own 3 Course Menu" and tried many different appies, entrée's and desserts - they were all very good. Will definitely return the next time I'm in San Fran.

Call the restaurant directly to tell them your problem. Generally, high end restaurants would happily accommodate your special needs. Be sure to tip the chef.
