This is one of the restaurants that we visit every time that we are in SF. The food and service are always great, the bartender would make you any kind of cocktail that you like and the staff is very friendly. Our hostess was Sarah and she was super nice.

We came here on the spur of the moment after a bad start at a nearby restaurant. As my husband said, "some things happen for a reason". We had a great meal here in a great atmosphere. The service was very attentive without hovering. Great meal that was decently priced as well.

BIstro 315 is an amazing place to dine. I was treated to dinner here by a dear friend, and I am so glad that his way of living showed me another side to food culture. The food here is amazing. I was mindblown. If you order anything, make sure it's the creme brulee- it's unreal. So amazing. There is a... More

I always have the same thing - the mussels in white wine, garlic, lemon & herbs. With fries and a glass of white wine. Heavenly!

Loved the duck breast special as well as the sole with turnips, asparagus. The charcuterie plate was fantastic - and the meat is from the chef's own cellar. We tried a "one of" bottle of wine and hit it big.

We ambled over to Bistro 315, around the corner from Inn of the Five Graces, our lodging for the evening. The bistro’s maître d' was impressive, seemingly straight from Apache central casting. He was tall, with a rugged face, and a gray, waist-long pony tail. He wore jeans, a dark-burgundy blazer with un-cufflinked shirt cuffs protruding from the sleeves. With... More

My 3 companions quite liked their dinners. Mine was southern style quail which was served with a very thick crust dripping with fat. I grew up in Texas, and even the deep south does not serve food that fatty.

The first impression was a host with a ponytail that was arrogant, obnoxious and rude. The table was extremely small in a corner, service was completely average, the food is not impressive at all. I felt like throwing my money to the trash, it was not worth the expense. If I need to put it in a few words not... More

Went to this wine bar for drinks and apps. Great atmopshere, cute little area. Loved the wine selections and small plates. Great homemade potato tots.
