My girlfriend and I are coming into SF this Saturday and I want to find the perfect romantic place to propose to her. I have never been to the city and want to make this perfect. I thought about Twin Peaks, but it won't be until around 10pm at night and I don't know if that is a good place to be at night.

Please help

How about the Top of the MarK?

By the Arrow on the Embarcadero

During dinner at Julius Castle - great views

Twin Peaks could be totally covered in fog at 10pm and your girlfriend may not be able to see you when you propose.

Do a search for "romantic" spots on the forum. That question comes up a lot.

Good Luck!

If the evening is not TOO foggy and/or windy, pier 7 down at the embarcadero is lovely and romantic in my opinion.

Anywhere along the waterfront.

Or at the Palace of Fine Arts dome by the lagoon (next to the Exploratorium) at Baker & Beach Streets.

The parking lot at Twin Peaks gets sleazy late at night; I would avoid it.

For 10 pm, I like the Top of the Mark, also. The Palace of Fine Arts is kind of torn up right now, while undergoing repairs to the lagoon, besides it's pretty dark there at night.
