We went there for my mom's birthday. We told the hostess and our waitress this. We ordered wine and of course the wine that we ordered was not available ($65). So they tried to upsell us to a different bottle. He received the bottle they recommended($90) we didn't like the wine, so we sent it back. At that point the... More

Ate here with my nephew who lives in SF and I'm so happy he brought me here. I loved that the restaurant is located on a small side street. There is a lovely courtyard which leads to the restaurant. The staff were friendly and attentive. Loved the French/Vietnamese menu. We shared the Bo Bla Chay appetizer - awesome. The Lemongrass... More

Very nice restaurant, good ambiance and the food was very good. Not the cheapest place, but good service and nice setting, despite the somewhat formulaic decor. But the name of the restaurant is a good hint at what to expect. Definitely worth visiting and you will enjoy the food.

We were recommended this place by the concierge in our hotel- well done Juan! - we would never have come across it as it is down a side street. Excellent French/Vietnamese cuisine in excellent decor and atmosphere. Spare ribs and the filet mignon house speciality recommended.

Very unique and classy dinner choice. Go when the weather is nice and sit outside on the terrace ... the bar lounge is great!

I was there with colleagues this past week and honestly have to say it was the worst meal I ate in San Francisco by a lot. The room is gorgeous and serene and the walk up through the terrace really gets you excited for the experience. The gentleman seating people our evening was arrogant and frankly full of himself. He... More

Went with a large (12) group from work. We had arranged a fixed menu sampling a number appetizers, main courses, side plates and desserts. Overall, the food was delightful. The service was very good. I'm from out of town, but would gladly return.

Great place in downtown. A mix of vietnamese and french cuisine. They have also a weekday menu but get ready for it as the anounts are also huge. We enjoyed enormously. For me one of the best creme bulee with a touch of lime. Amazing!!! Great to have some drinks after or prior dinner. They have a covered patio to... More

A fusion between French and Vietnamese cuisine. I went there with friends. I had bad luck with my choices since it was average and overpriced. They did not find a trick to make the meals special. A good Vietnamese or a good French restaurant might have been the better choice. Also the service was a snotty and slow. An example... More

I ate here twice in December with friends and family. We enjoyed the fun cocktails. Appetizers were tasty. Main dishes were hearty and delicious. Shaking beef was amazing. Service was timely, friendly, and conscientious without hovering.

Thank msfetch
