This restaurant is tucked away on a side street, off the beaten path. The food was tasty & service very good. The upstairs bar is a good place to start with drinks.

Off an alley off of Post Street. What a find. The room is quite nice. Very nice fine dining experience. The food is Asian fusion with a Thai Influence. We ordered the $28.00 appetizer for two, with an added order of the Crab Cake appetizer and two glasses of wine and had a great time sharing. The bill came to... More

A very well-concealed, back-alley location well worth seeking ! The menu was pre-fix for 18 people and everyone found a favorite dish. The drink menu was a blend of exotic and mixed drinks and beers and the wine list almost exhaustive. Had one of the best Pinot Noir I have had in ages. Great food, quirky location, excellent service.

We have eaten here 3-4 times. The ambiance at night is sort of warm golden light dripping with history. The food (French/Vietnamese) has always been excellent. Be aware that there is an attitude in this restaurant. I would call it "French cool depressed" from the staff. This is not a happy smiles restaurant. Service can be slow too. But the... More

So we went to Le Colonial for Thanksgiving Dinner. We brought a special bottle of wine that a recently deceased loved one had given us for Christmas and we wanted to have a toast in his honor at Thanksgiving Dinner. The maître d came to our table and took the bottle of wine and said "no corkage on a holiday."... More

This restaurant is close to the theater district in SF, but don't make a wrong turn or you'll end up in a pretty seedy/unsafe part of the city very quickly. It's situated down a little alleyway, which seems nice and a bit European. The restaurant itself is much bigger inside than it looks from the outside. There's a lounge upstairs... More

This place has been the best dinner during San Francisco stay. This is not a chip restaurant but it deserves a visit

Glenn Miller, Louie Armstrong and Etta James filled the air of this period-designed venue which only served to accent the attentive and timely service and tasty, inventive preparations. The perfectly flaky sea bass was steamed in grape leaves with noodles, veggies and spices. It was a light Sunday night, so courses were delivered promptly. Prices were reasonable for the caliber...

We're only here for a few days and want to experience the best San Francisco has to offer without spending a ton. I read the other reviews and was intrigued by the Vietnamese menu in a non-asian sounding venue. Wow! What a pleasant surprise! We weren't really hungry so we shared the appetizer sampler and it was delicious! The Brussel... More
