Reviewed January 4, 2013

Great food, very French, and lovely...the wait staff could be a little more French, nice for them to speak it if possible...but its still pretty good.

“Good French restaurant”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

Good service, ambience, location and tables give this establishment a plus.
Enjoyed the oysters natural, smoked salmon on crisp pizza bread. Shrimp salad was good.
The staff are knowledgeable and helpful.

“New year eve lunch”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Had a great lunch, food was really good. they serve local beer and wine which is a nice touch for a French restaurant. the only fault is that the tables a close together and we had very noisy neighbours.

“A Little Parisian Cafe in SF”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

We enjoyed a nice breakfast recently at the corner of Grant and Bush. My pancakes were tasty and my wife enjoyed her omelet. The half inch slice of orange garnish was delicious and we were stunned at the number of people who left the orange garnish to be disposed of without eating any at all. We we returned a few hours later with a friend, there was a line out the door. The croissants looked amazing, altho we did not try them. I think locals enjoy this European cafe.
