“My 60th birthday treat!”
Reviewed November 18, 2006

We went to Frascati after reading reviews in tripadvisor and are very pleased to recommend this restaurant, good food, excellant service friendly attentive and the wine was well advised. We had the gnocci starter, duck for main course and we shared the chocolate bread pudding. I am not a sweet person but the bread pudding was just delicious. It was the best meal we had in SF in over 3 day visit and it was our last evening meal, what a way to finish. Try and book the table for two upstairs which overlooks the open kitchen. Good luck!

“25th Anniversary Dinner”
Reviewed June 13, 2006

We were in San Francisco celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and I had made reservations at Frascati on opentable. We were treated like royalty from the minute we walked into the restaurant. They had a second floor table (overlooking the restaurant) waiting for us. I had the Mahi Mahi which was very good, but my husband had the duck, which was to die for! We shared the chocolate bread pudding for dessert - yum! The service was outstanding and it was our favorite meal in San Francisco.

“Wonderful Meal!”
Reviewed March 19, 2006

When first walking into the restaurant, we were not all that impressed, and even less impressed when led to a tiny table for two on the second floor. Not very impressed with the variety offered on the menu either. But the impression changed once the food arrived. The mahi mahi dinner entree was wonderful as was the chocolate bread pudding. Both definetely made for a memorable food experience.

“Wonderful meal”
Reviewed January 16, 2006

We ate there January 15,2006. Overall, the food was excellent, especially salads and appetizers. Flavoring of main courses was not subtle-some of the spices were strong. For example, the horseradish in the mash potatoes was overpowering. Desserts were superb-try the banana sorbet if available.

“Wonderful place and food”
Reviewed October 24, 2005

My wife and I had dinner at Frascati while visiting San Francisco earlier this month. It was easily our best meal while in town and we actively seek out good restaurants. Everything we had was superbly flavorful, the service was very helpful and welcoming, and not the least bit pretentious. The decor was warm and romantic (except the bathroom is a joke). The wine choices and recommendations were great and overall I think it was priced very fairly for San Francisco. We will definately be back next time we are in town.
