We were only in town 4 days and ate there 3 times! Mario made us feel so welcome and each server was on it. The food is off the charts delicious and so is the coffee. They have poached egg Benedict's 7 ways with the best Hollandaise sauce in the city. Totally worth the wait and they turn the tables... More

Classic French bistro. It's small but quaint inside. Service was good and the food was great. It's not Michelin but you will enjoy your food here.

Renting an apartment nearby this excellent little place. Fresh, delicious food and I wanted to try every item on their varied menu. Could easily eat here every day. Loved my poached eggs with hollandaise sauce, spinach and mushrooms. Simple and perfectly cooked eggs. My kids adored the french toast ....it was sweet and eggy and just perfect. Love this place.

We ate on a Monday morning, to avoid the weekend brunch lineup. Don't see why the lineup. The place is cramped, the food was below average. No need to return here.

I always make it a point to make a trip out to Zazie when I'm in town! Came in on a Thursday morning at 815am and there were only 2 other tables. Towards the end of our meal, more people started trickling in. I would recommend coming on a weekday if you're able to! Expect a wait if you're here... More

This place was packed, overflowing on the sidewalk when we got there for a Saturday brunch around noon. That speaks volumes to the number of people who wait just for their chance to dine here. Delicious and fresh food. Yummy mimosas. Delightful service and environment. If you are ever in town and have the chance to grab a bite here... More

Be prepared to wait in line outside for a while, but once you get it, the food is awesome. Lovely little area out back too if you don't mind waiting a bit longer.

We made our first trip to Zazie last weekend and it will be the first of many, I hope! The decor was inviting - the service was friendly - and the food was fantastic. Add a delightful neighborhood setting, and it adds up to someplace we'd like to return!

Our son brought us here; the wait was short, and we sat in the back patio. It's a very pretty setting, and as there was a chill in the air, we were happy the heaters were on. We were all tempted by the mimosas, and as the waitress said, "It is Saturday after all!" One of us had the ginger... More

Must try the brunch menu at Zazie if you are visiting San Francisco. We had one of the best brunch in San Francisco. Florentin Poached Eggs and French Toast Tahiti were one of their specialities. We had to book a table, but it worth (long waiting line outside).Service was good also. I would defiantly come back in this cosy place.
