This restaurant is superb on all it's points. I had a wonderful meal on a wonderful day. Everything was perfect. The visual, the texture the flavor and the location. This is my first time here and it won't be my last. It is definitely worth the drive from Monterey, Ca.

A wonderful neighborhood restaurant where we regulars. My husband and I have probably eaten here more than 20 times and have never had a bad meal. Some of the best regular dishes include: endive/blue cheese/walnut salad, ahi tuna/salmon torte, steak frites, mussels and fries. The pommes frites are to die for!

This place lives up to its fine ratings. Eat there. Set in a quiet residential area, this relatively small bistro served up some excellent French cuisine that topped nearly all the French food we had on a recent trip to Paris. My wife had a terrific endive salad to start. My mushroom soup was very well balanced and flavorful. Her... More

The neighborhood really supports this wonderful french restaurant. My husband and I live within walking distance to the bistro. Jacques and his family are so friendly and make everyone feel right at home even if you are a first timer. The menu changes daily with creative entrees and always very fresh ingredients. Wines are predominately french but they have some... More

In my business, I travel, and dine, all over the world. When I'm home in San Francisco, Bistro Central Park is our first choice of restaurants. Jacques (owner) with his family and staff create a warm, friendly, relaxed atmosphere to prepare some of the best French food in SF. Fresh, inventive and wonderful. Not be missed.

This is a great, classy spot in a quiet neighborhood in San Francisco. We live down the street and will make it a regular spot. It would be a nice place for out of Town people also since it is near the park, but with a local feel.

We had dined here twice in May, 2013, while visiting San Francisco. This time, we took our family (8 of us), and everyone - including 2 children aged 8 and 11 - loved it. One of our sons tried ris-de-veau for the first time, and really enjoyed it. It was cooked perfectly. The moules in curry were excellent. Everyone enjoyed... More

We had dinner here to celebrate my husband birthday and we reserved a table for 9 people. Everything was perfect. Delicious food, great service and not pricy. At the end my husband received a small candle in his desert and a gift (a mug!)! We just loved it!

Really great food and attentive service. Try the Salmon Benedict! The OJ was super-fresh-squeezed. The location is a quiet street near Alamo Square, and they have outdoor seating.
