We stayed in the Cole Valley recently so tried several restaurants. Zazie is clearly a favorite with locals, often with queues outside. We had dinner there and while the staff was very friendly and the ambiance lovely, the food was mediocre. I had the spring pasta with asparagus, bacon and breadcrumbs. It was claggy and didn't taste of much. My... More

This is a small place which seems to have a big heart. We arrived for our dinner reservation and were promptly seated. Three opted for a very good onion soup and one for a nicely done chopped chicken liver pate with brandy (who knew chicken liver could be that good?). Entrees were nicely done. Couldn't pass up the dense chocolate... More

We went here for my wife's birthday. There were four of us. We had reservations and were promptly seated. Our server was knowledgeable and made several helpful recommendations. My daughter got the rabbit and said it was among the best she has ever had. She raved about it. I really liked the French onion soup. Our food was well prepared... More

Excellent food, lovely atmosphere, and attentive waitstaff. My friends and I have been here multiple times for both brunch and dinner. Both are excellent, definitely one of the best French style places in the city. The patio at the back is especially atmospheric and lovely on a warm day.

Delicious food and mimosas. Despite there being a long line, it moved quickly and the service was very friendly! Would definitely recommend to others.

Zazie is an excellent french themed restaurant on Cole street. We arrived at about 11am and was able to sit right down. Granted there were only the two of us, there were others (with larger groups) who had been waiting for a while. The service was excellent and the food was superb. Great job Zazie!

We have tried several French bistros in the city and have enjoyed the individuality of their menus, wine lists and overall ambience. Zazie offers it's take on classics like duck cassoulet, mushroom ravioli, potato leek soup and many more favorites. The location is residential, not easy to find for visitors to the city, but clearly is highly regarded by the... More

as we got there, we saw there were 2 tables outside. a sign said you didn't have to wait for the tables, just sit when it becomes available. We were tempted to take a table when our name got called. So glad we waited! We were seated in the back patio, which you can't see from the front. It's a... More

I had a combo plate of various pancakes and was amazed by their bread pudding pancakes. Definitely the best of any pancakes I've ever tasted. The place was small but cozy and the staff was friendly and attentive. Coffee was excellent. My wife had a scramble and loved it as well. They had an option to replace home fries with... More
