The food was interesting, but the menu was limited, and I didn't really want anything. I got the chicken, and it was fine with good accompaniaments. I wouldn't go back

Business dinner for three that turned into a delightful family dinner as we shared plates and enjoyed our meal immensely. Amuse bouche started out fantastic, entrees were fabulous and the almond cake dessert the best I have had in five years of eating out 200+ times per year. Recommend to anyone, and go earlier as it fills up fast. Was... More

I have been attempting to enjoy foie gras in San Francisco before the silly ban goes into affect Summer 2012. A friend of mine always takes me to dinner for my birthday, so I thought this would be an ideal time to revisit this restaurant. The location is very convenient to public transportation. You can hop on BART and exit... More

My husband and I ate at Chez Papa last week. We ordered the tasting menu, which is touted as a 4 course meal. The first course is hardly a course. The night we were there it was an oyster in a shot glass and the smallest potato fritter I've ever seen. Everything was very tasty and the wine selections were... More

We decided to com back to this restaurant from a pleasant experience on a trip a couple years ago when it was recommended by the concierge from the Westin St. Francis. I had the lamb 2-ways which was good and my partner has the chicken breast. We expected a great atmosphere and good service which did no disappoint. The food... More

I had a dinner in this restaurant the first time during my recent business trip to San Francisco. All the food that I ordered was very good and well prepared. The onion soup deserves special mention: they do it very differently from the traditional way, but I must say I have never enjoyed an onion soup more than the one... More

I am very dissapointed in Chez Papas service. It was not an enjoyable experience. Our main waiter was rude and ill mannered. As soon as he got to the table he did not greet us. He did not make us feel welcomed. He seemed like he was disinterested and I felt as if he was rushing us to order right... More

We dined at Chez Papa with the recommendation of the St. Regis Hotel Concierge. When we arrived, we were struck by the chic decor and the beautiful architecture. It has a very hip and moody environment with vintage-looking wall paper, banquettes, black chandeliers, cane-backed chairs, black-painted trim, and black silk accents. The food was just as fabulous. We had rack... More

We went on a Saturday night! The restaurant was a little hard to find, but glad we did. The Mussels were very good, plump with a great broth. The entree were also very good. I had Artic Char it had good flavor and nice sides. My husband had a lamb dish and was very flavorful. we enjoyed it very much!
