Unfortunately, Hexagone is now closed, that is, out of business. It was a great French restaurant and we will miss it. It was especially great before the theater at the Old Globe.

Great atmosphere, great location and always decent service. This husband and wife owner are having problems for the past 5 years keeping a chef. I wonder why? The food always tends to exceed my expectations. I hope that they find a chef that can stay and accelerate the growth of this location.

from the restaurant website… Mes Chers Amis:____ (My Dear Friends) It is with mixed feelings that I am writing to inform you that I have sold Hexagone, which closed its doors on March 7, 2016. While I am sad to see the restaurant close, I am at a point in my life where I wish to slow down a bit,... More

Arrived at 6:25 for 6:30 reservation and was told it would be 5 mins roughly. Anyway 30 mins later we were still standing there along with people with 6:45 reservation. No one talked to us in a half hour. There were 4 tables in sight with no one at them. We were about to leave when a man in a... More

We went here for for lunch during restaurant week. A previous dining experience here was less than perfect. I had the mushroom raviolis as an appetizer and the sea bass canoise for my main dish. The raviolis themselves were very good but I thought the sauce was a little too spicy. The sea bass was well prepared and came with... More

It's a shame the management did NOT staff the restaurant appropriately for Restaurant Week. Our poor Waiter acted as the Maitre D, bus boy, waiter. I saw TWO servers and 1 bartender on a Sunday night during Restaurant Week. Just Not enough! I have to say, The food was perfect . I enjoyed my duck confit of a leg &... More

I went to Hexagone, where I have enjoyed the food in the past, even though service has always been a bit spotty. Today, I was simply ignored. After being given a lunch menu (very short) and a glass of water, I sat for 25 minutes, while other diners were served. No one came to my table, though I attempted, in... More

I like Hexagone a lot - it's an unpretentious French Bistro serving very good food with knowledgeable and helpful servers. We ate with friends - they split a salad and I started with my usual - escargots in vampire slaying sauce. My wife had the day's special dish - seabass with prawn and scallop in a citrus reduction and I... More

This restaurant is top of the line in Fine Dining. Elegant atmosphere, great service, excellent selection of entrees, highly recommended for that special occasion. My friend started with the apple salad and I had the escargot, main entree was Sea Bass and Rack of Lamb, finished of with Crape Suzette for dessert. The entire evening could not have been better,...
