  • Amy YExcellent French cuisine. Get the most expensive tasting menu -- not that much more $ for a MUCH better experience.

  • Frank Garcia3 course menu is what you need for a great meal anything else and it's called gluttony

  • Time Out San FranciscoHead to the Green Room at this French classic for date night tonight. The Provençal decor and attentive staff add to the charm of this delightfully haute but not at all haughty establishment.

  • Chefs FeedGary Rulli, chef of Emporio Rulli, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Huckleberry Baked Alaska.

  • Daniel BouludChef Roland Passot is an old friend of mine. He has been serving “la vraie cuisine française” for 25 years in SF. When I’m in town I stop in for delicious dishes such as the rôti of quail and squab.

  • David Z.Tasting menu was amazing and love how flexible they are with swapping dishes. One of the best meals you'll have in SF (but you'll pay for it)

    55555 by David Z.


  • Brad G.High-end decadence. Unintimidating, cozy, French. One of the city’s best fine-dining experiences without the stereotypical stuffiness

    55555 by Brad G.


  • Michelin Travel & LifestyleLook for courses like pig‘s feet, sweetbreads, lobster terrine, or cheese soufflé with sorbet, bacon and sesame tuile. – Green Guide Editor

  • Jessica C.Love their Papa's pilar cocktails #rum #papaspilar #rumcocktails @papaspilar #sf #nightlife

    55555 by Jessica C.


  • Kristi H.Get the wagyu beef and Pigs feet app. Don't splurge on the truffle for anything. Not worth it! Wine is good. Escargot is disappointing so is risotto.

    55555 by Kristi H.


  • Steve S.The chef's menu with the wine paring is hard to beat. I mourn the loss of the foie gras though.

    55555 by Steve S.


  • Amy M.The reviews don't lie - this is THE best restaurant in SF. From lobster to duck to quail to souffles, the dishes are fantastic, both in taste and presentation. And chef pops in a few dishes for free!

    55555 by Amy M.


  • Jessica C.The Ahi Tartare is to die for, love the Papa's Pilar Rum had a great cocktail called Deep and Refreshing

    55555 by Jessica C.

  • Peggy C.The best French restaurant ever!

    55555 by Peggy C.


  • EaterIndustry types pop in to this richly decorated Russian Hill hideaway for table-service, well-done cocktails and gussied up bar bites, like truffled popcorn.

  • Andy W.Ask to be seated in the front dining room. The back room is dark, old, stuffy and gloomy.

  • James M.Lounge drinks were a disappointment (2 of 4 petals via Fondu)

    33333 by James M.


  • Jose M.So professional and so amateur. Perfect service. Terrible play list. Food was just fair. Promised more than delivered. Quince is the same price range with superior experience. I'd come back though.

  • La Dolce VitaOne Michelin star.

  • Travel ChannelThis unintimidating, cozy French restaurant is one of the city’s best dining experiences. Chef Roland Passot is in the kitchen every night. As recommended by Travel Channel host, Anthony Bourdain.

    55555 by Eliane F.


  • Melly S.We walked in too early before they opened, cuz the door was open and they were very rude to us! We just wanted to try the 4square special! NEVER coming back!!

    22222 by Melly S.


  • chantal y.3 courses would be perfect (we had 5 on first visit), esp as it comes with amuse bouches. Foie gras is a must! And I am not sharing, non!

  • Andrei P.Just the tip.

    22222 by Andrei P.


  • Shona S.Four course is plenty. You don't need meat and shellfish (or do you?) Portions not nearly as monstrous as advertised, but ideal. Back room is decidely less convivial than front, but intimate, relaxed.

    55555 by Shona S.


  • Sherri Z.Just ask for my favorite dish -it's not on the menu and if your nice they will make it :) but it will cost you $$$

  • Linda D.Foie gras is enough for 2 people. Although I would order one portion for myself it's so good.

    55555 by Linda D.
