  • Rachel ASave room for their palmier ice cream!

    55555 by Rachel A


  • Haley RRomantic atmosphere! The layer cake for dessert is a must.

    55555 by Haley R


  • Josh W.Food is quite good, but service is dismal. I guess that's what happens when you slap on an automatic 20% gratuity.

    55555 by Holger L.


  • Brendan CurranExcellent duck confit and salmon tartare. Considerably less heavy than typical French bistro.

    55555 by Brendan Curran


  • joannesolid burger. a holy trinity of comte, raw onions, and caramelized onion bone marrow marmalade. if the price gives you pause, consider that it comes with a mind-bogglingly large mound of frites.

    55555 by joanne

    55555 by Iris H.

    55555 by HH


  • SFistThe chef's here have put together a crave-worthy menu of revised and brand new bistro classics at their bustling Hayes Valley outpost. There's steak tartare, frog legs in aigre doux, and much more.

    55555 by SFist


  • david r.Chicken croquet

    55555 by david r.

    55555 by SFGate

    55555 by Daniel U.

    22222 by Kris F.

    55555 by ₍˄ุ.͡˳̫.˄ุ₎ J.
