B44 Catalan Bistro works for a lot of reasons, from a last second date after work to dinner with your team. They have Spanish tapas classics like albondigas and patatas bravas, and the portions are pretty generous for what you pay. We like the gambas al ajillo, but make sure to keep some of the bread from the beginning of the meal to sop up the oil under the shrimp.

The plates at this new tapas bar are hit or miss. But Beso has serious potential. If they'd just dim the lights.
Abrazo is a Spanish place in Russian Hill that’s great when you need a last-second table.
Barcino, a Spanish spot in Hayes Valley, serves tasty but expensive tapas. Come for drinks and a snack, but probably not dinner.
