We went to this restaurant for dinner last night and were pleased. Julie, our waitress, took excellent care of us and was so cheerful and informative and pleasant. We enjoyed the adventurous starter which turned out to be blood sausage along with the escargot. We...More

Was recommended this by chance and loved it. Intimate with attentive staff. French cuisine by friendly French people. It's suitable for lone-dining at the counter, which was handy. My meal (zucchini & squash) was delicious, as was the wine. A real care for quality on...More

A bit hard to find. On Bush going downhill from Powell it is on the right. Just beyond the old style neon sign advertising a local market. It’s a cool venue! You can eat at the bar downstairs or have a table upstairs. Seats 12...More

Got into SFO late... checked-in at hotel on Stockton St. What a great find this place is. Very small carefully curated menu. Had the most amazing monkfish. A couple glasses of white wine... you must give this a try!

This was a great find for an impromptu Thursday evening dinner. The “adventurous” secret menu item was worth the blind faith to order. I also enjoyed the scallop starter and perfect lamb chop entree. Ambiance is quirky and intimate - our table upstairs was just...More

This is a very small restaurant. We enjoyed being upstairs, where I think they could seat fewer than 20 diners (downstairs is even more limited). So, a reservation was a good idea. We had good service and good dinners. I loved the sauce with my...More
