Wondeful brunchWe went for Mother's day brunch. I had the buckwheat beignets and the semolina pancake. They were delicious. I am still dreaming about them. I was expecting something nice but the dishes were way about my expectations.
I will strongly recommend to my friends.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day BrunchWe've been to Bar Agricole a few times - mostly for dinner or wine (or both). I didn't think about going for brunch until I started looking for a nearby place for a Mother's Day brunch. It was my wife's first Mother's Day, so I wanted to keep close to home in case the baby melted down. I also was hoping we'd get seated outside in Agricole's nice outdoor garden area - which worked out and resulted in a great brunch. Basically, great service, great food; we were well attended-to, the cocktails were excellent, and this place is totally under the radar for the neighborhood - hidden from street view (which is a good thing on 11th/Folsom). Plus, buckwheat beignets...nuff said.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSnappy Title Goes HereWe sent on the recommendation of friends, and were very pleased. It was getting busy, but I could still talk with my wife across the table without yelling. The bar scene looked to be happening.
We had the fried smelt, artichoke soup, fennel salad, and duck breast; all of which were excellent. Presentation, quality, ingredients, and portion were all excellent.
The standout was the service. Everyone (a team of five) was attentive without being obtrusive, and very, very nice.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBeyond delicious.The ambiance was busy, but a comfortable busy. The restaurant was pleasantly buzzing with activity. The food was outstanding. My husband and I began with the Sea Urchin Deviled Eggs which were fresh and tasty. I ate the Green Farro with shiitake mushrooms, green garlic and green almonds, which was meaty and just made me want to eat more with every bite. My husband had the Crispy Duck which he proceeded to devour. His plate was absolutely clean by the time he was done. The service was excellent. The waiter was attentive but not overbearing. Overall, Bad Agricole was a near perfect dining experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my Birthday and myIt was my Birthday and my daughter who is a restaurant manager sent us there. It was fab in every way....loved it especailly the outdoor heated dining area...so great!!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMInnovative food and greatInnovative food and great cocktails. If it's a nice day, I suggest telling them you want to eat outside before arriving unless you want to wait an hour past your reservation time.

When crowded the noise can be unbearable.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the decor of the place.Love the decor of the place. Great feeling as soon as you enter the place. It is large place. I didn't expect it. Artwork and design is nice. I would say it is a little too loud for my taste but it is bearable.
Food: Few things on the menu but hit my weakness. Duck!!! I love duck. The liver tartine was delicious, earthy and so tasty. Duck breast main course was beautifully presented, no oversized portion (thank you). Freshness of the produce was awesome. Love the fresh garbanzo bean. My friend order the cod and the plate looks delicious.
Drinks: good selection of wine (haven't try it). Ginger beer is spicy and delicious. Cocktail list seems appealing.
Have to come back and try more of their food.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIf we want to impress someone,If we want to impress someone, we take them to Bar Agricole.

Deliciously created mixed drinks with amazing flavors - most bitterly beautiful. Bartenders are filled with knowledge and show mixing finesse. Bites are tantalizing - sea urchin deviled eggs are amazingly sensual. Wine is definitely worth looking at as it is definitely not the run of the mill collection.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good, minus 1 starFood was good, minus 1 star for pretty small portions.

I love the interior and mood: modern, clean and spacious. The food is wonderful! Beautifully presented, similar to many michelin starred restaurants. My only one gripe is that the portions are tiny (one notch below small). But still, there's a good chance I may return.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an amazing dinner lastWe had an amazing dinner last week. And the joy of eating outside under the tent was wonderful.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI returned to Bar AgricoleI returned to Bar Agricole recently on a warm night and ate on the patio. The cocktails were fantastic -- as was the food. We started with a broccolini and hummus dish and then I had the duck confit. Both were simply perfection! The service was wonderful as well. Go here and you won't regret it.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it. Bar Agricole isLoved it. Bar Agricole is VERY San Francisco Urban.
