There is nothing better than spending a special occasion with friends. It is my birthday, so I selected this nice and cozy restaurant near Balboa Park to celebrate. We were a party of 6 and had a very nice table in the center of the restaurant. We perused the dinner menu after ordering our drinks. Our waiter was very friendly,... More

We dine here regularly, and have never been disappointed with a meal or the service provided. When Chantel is performing, it really is a night in Paris.

We were here for a conference, staying with friends near Balboa park , and just searched for a nearby french cafe and discovered Hexagone. They gave us a perfect table for 3 and pleasantly controlled the AC for us. We ordered a perfect Sancerre and then tasty mussels, soups, and salads . Then duck, pastas and super deserts... Apple tarte... More

This is a lovely restaurant with some interesting offerings. The flavorful portions seemed small, but are probably right-sized, considering the richness of the food. The service, however, was sorely lacking and certainly not deserving of the requisite 15% tip (which for our meal would have purchased at least two more desserts or another appetizer!). Considering that the establishment was not... More

My wife, daughter and myself had a great meal at Hexagone. Our waiter, Shane, was outstanding. He was cordial, knowledgeable and very attentive. He stopped by our table numerous times to ask how our meal was and if there was anything we needed.

I love french cuisine so wherever I travel to, I always search out french restaurants. This restaurant was within walking distance from our hotel so we decided to eat there. We ordered couple of cocktails and they were good. I have the frog legs and my husband had the french onion soup. The frog legs were a little overcooked so... More

My mother came into town and I wanted to treat her to something nice. I have seen great reviews about this place and thought I should give it a try.. WRONG MOVE! I don't think their reviews are real people!! The place was empt! Our server was more interested in the busser's car than his two tables. It took us... More

Cool / fun 'off the beaten path' place with a lot of charm. At the triangle between Hillcrest, downtown and Little Italy. Great place for locals, but worth the 12 minute / $10 dollar taxi (with tip) trip from downtown if you want to escape the 5th avenue scene for something more personal. Regarding the menu: The frog legs, lobster... More

I had trouble deciding between a 3 and a 4 star. So probably a 3 1/2 star. We went here for a special dinner celebration. I read reviews before hand so was a bit worried. Overall a very enjoyable meal with good food. A few things that were mentioned in other reviews, but not enough to give this place a... More

We had a party of 8 and got seated immediately. The waiter was attentive but service from the bar was slow; it took about 15 minutes for a drink to arrive and we had to order glasses of wine twice before they came. The dinners were very good but 2 of the dinners arrived about 5 minutes after the other... More
