Foreign Cinema is fantastic.

Every time I visit San Francisco, I dine at least once at Foreign Cinema. We love this place because it is different and it is fun!

The space is beautiful. They converted an industrial loft space with 20 ft. ceilings into a remarkable indoor/outdoor restaurant with beautiful lighting, terrific (farm fresh) food and great service. The outdoor space has a large movie screen that plays old b&w movies. You have to try it!
