Excellent food - painfully slow service

We treated great friends to dinner on Valentine's evening. We were seated and then it took almost 30 minutes to get menus. When we arrived, the table was set for two people - we were four. Three times we asked for silverware, napkins, and bread plates for the other two people but didn't get them... read more

The atmosphere is pleasant but it doesn't hold up. Very frustrating slow service at a work lunch- an hour and a half. Request was ignored. One order was incorrect. The kitchen then prepared the dish but very poorly. This restaurant could very easily improve all these shortcomings.

I did not eat in the main dining room, but the cozy bar is great for appetizers and drinks. Wine list by the glass is unremarkable , but still decent. Appetizers are really good,smallish, but reasonably priced and a good place to stop pre or post theatre, symphony or just for drinks and a snack. The fried artichoke hearts are... More

My wife and I went there with some friends to try out their Restaurant Week menu. The food most definitely did not disappoint. Amazing in all regards. Their wine selection is ok by the glass, their bottle selection quite a bit better. They have a new parking garage which is nice for that area of town. The service for us... More

Slipped into Hexagone for an impromptu lunch with a friend on a weekday. The place was far from full with just a handful of tables in use and maybe that should have told us something. The gentleman who greeted us with a smile was pleasantly friendly and seated us right away, but unfortunately, he wasn’t our waiter. No - we... More

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.
