We first visited this restaurant in 2015 - had a memorable meal (the duck was superb!). We returned this week (9th May) - received the same warm welcome and enjoyed another delicious meal. Their signature chicken dish was tender and tasty and the duck was once again - "superb". The staff were friendly and service excellent. Worth a visit.

A small homey restaurant we saw reviewed on Check Please. Limited menu but all choices very good. Among our table we had the rotisserie chicken with three sauces, the coq au vin, and the duck with the duck being the best of the three. The chicken dishes were really good - only pause is not as good as our homemade... More

Loved this little French bistro...such special cuisine and terrific service. Get there early for the best seating and less noise. It is a busy place and well deserved. There is a small bar and even a couple of outside tables. A great selection of wines by the glass and terrific desserts....what more could you want?? Seriously, in a city full... More

We came for a Valentine's dinner which cost us $200, but Hubby ordered a glass of French red wine and they charge health care tax which added to the meal cost. It was a 3 course prix fixed dinner for $85 per person, with 3 options for appetizer, main and 2 options for dessert. The place is rather tiny, seating... More

I had driven by Cocotte a few times in the evening and was drawn by the glow that seemed to emanate from its windows. Finally, my family group of four had dinner there this past December. The warm flattering light and the glow of the copper pots on the wall make everyone look their best. The wine list is vast,... More

A friend and I selected this restaurant, a participator in SF's restaurant week, for their 3 course tasting menu dinner- offered at the absolute steal of a price $40. A very intimate space with a limited number of tables, even though we had made a reservation (using OpenTable.com) we waited about 30 minutes to be seated. We found this acceptable,... More

We returned here after a long break for the $40 restaurant week dinner, consisting of three courses. The food was okay, with the osso bucco recommended, The tarte tatin and molten chocolate cake were average at best. The main annoyance was the hostess; she has to go.

We returned to this lovely little restaurant on Hyde St for the second Christmas Eve celebration here. Christmas Eve 2015 was our first visit there and we had decided to return there for this year (thinking we had started a tradition).

My girlfriend walked in first while I parked car for an early reservation at 5:30. Even though only one other couple was in the restaurant they would not seat her till I arrived and made her wait at the bar.

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
