Lively neighborhood bistro.

The owner stopped by twice to welcome us and later to check on us. Excellent food and service just right. The atmosphere is lively without being deafening. It's just a good all-around place to which I would return.

Extremely reasonably priced French bistro on Market right next to the Castro. The menu isn't huge but we had no problem finding great selections. On top of great taste the prices were extremely reasonable in this foodie city. The staff were attentive and there was a cozy ambiance. If you're looking for great French bistro food then this is a... More

Weekend brunch here is a party for the senses. Fun times. Bottomless campaign. Delicious French food. Have the Oeuf Cocotte (yummy and rich) or the Croque Monsieur. Crepes are also delicious.

A bit expensive, but a good place for a Sunday morning brunch -- particularly if you're looking for a healthy-feeling french toast. Service is only-OK, but staff try to be friendly making it forgivable.

We had the option of sitting downstairs next to the bar or upstairs. We chose downstairs as it had more atmosphere. The owner was very friendly and could advise about the food and wine on offer.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the place we were staying as a "date" place with really nice food. So we made a booking. The service was fantastic - that was a clear winner. But we were seated upstairs (which lacked atmosphere and the décor upstairs was unappealing) next to the wall, without any points of interest. Not really... More

I found it a bad place: food and cleaning have been understatement compared to the price I paid for my dinner; Staying there was uncomfortable, I quickly had my dinner and run away.

As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation.
