Diner Reviews
  • "While I thought everything was fine, Claudine didn't leave much of an impression on me. The servers were efficient and friendly, but none of the food was particularly memorable. Not a bad choice, but there are better places nearby."

  • "Dined with three friends and got a good sample of the menu. The cheese selection is great and the vegetable tartine is delicious, though I would like more for $15. Roast chicken is rich and comes with super-decadent (and thankfully small) bread salad. My friend's smoked trout salad looked beautiful... didn't see too much trout but the poached egg on top is glorious. We also got the lime parfait for desert, which is tangy and has the perfect crumble on top and is now one of my new favorite things. It's an "eastery & wine bar" and I am no wine fanatic but I thought the grenache blanc was refreshing. We had a great time talking over our food and ended up spending 2.5 hours at Claudine! But we never felt rushed. Must return for happy hour!"

  • "I like that these reviews are from actual diners like myself! Our group was promptly seated, given nice service and ate beautiful foods like the pâté plate, pork belly, mussels and beef brisket. The beef brisket was superb and rose above the rest so I'd definitely recommend it. Overall it was a lovely, relaxed dining experience!"

  • "Really excellent food selections (mussels, pumpkin gratin) and delicious wine. Not too crowded on a Tuesday night."

  • "The menu is seductive, trout salad on frisee with roasted potatoes and a poached egg with creme fraiche dressing and a second entree of mussels. OK, we had our choices. But wait, how about some bread. That's $2.00 more, even if you order entrees but we're hungry when we sit down and have ordered wine and a beer between us so we ask for the bread. Table next to us comes in after us, orders their bread and gets two orders before I finally have to ask for ours. Hmmmm, not quite on the ball here. Entree salad comes, it's mediocre and bland, lots of greens, little toppings, mussels come and they are salty. So salty that all the way home we're dying of thirst. Sorry to say, this one's off our list. Will go back to Plouf for mussels."

  • "As a vegetarian it can sometimes be a challenge to find variety. Not at Claudine. I split a very favorful kale salad, brussell sprouts in a cream sauce and a very tasty pasta with a delicate cheese. Speaking of cheese, our servor recommended a goat cheese, hard cheese and a cheese in the blue cheese family all of which were amazing. Highly recommend."

  • "We have lunch often at Claudine. Great place to take clients or employees for a nice lunch that isn't overly-fancy. I like the ambiance--feels very N.Y. Food is always well-executed and the menu options are very healthy."

  • "A delicious and romantic meal. Food portions were somewhat small, but my partner and I both quickly found ourselves feeling satisfied. I guess what it lacks in size it makes up for in richness. Ambience was great."

  • "I visited Claudine several times during a recent week spent in SF for work. The staff are always welcoming and the atmosphere pleasant. Happy Hour is great if you just want a glass of wine or a few with some tasty snacks. The quality of the food is quite good, and the prices are reasonable for a such quality served at a downtown SF location."

  • "I love Cafe Claude. It's one of my favorite places, but I just wanted to try something a bit different. Claudine was a perfect match. The food is as wonderful as her sister, Cafe Claude. Other interesting options, a little less traditional, a bit better on the price point. Great wines at very good prices. Options of smaller plates, which the kate salad is not although fabulous! We will visit Claudine again!"

  • "Local, fresh, french. I love it. The mussels were amazing, I love how they make their own stuff. It's great."

  • "Claudine is tucked away on Claude Ln in the FiDi - it's a cute spot for a glass of wine. I love it for happy hour or a first date. This was the first time I tried it for lunch and was neither blown away nor let down. We ordered the lunch prix fixe - choice of soup or salad, choice of sandwich and macarons. The quinoa tabbouleh salad was delicious - but the server only brought my companion hers, while I sat there wondering why she didn't bring mine at the same time. We both ordered the prix fixe, so it was a bit unusual. The food was very tasty - maybe a little too 'potent' for a working lunch - I felt like my breath was super oniony after one or two bites of the steak sandwich. Will be back for a glass of wine, will see about the rest."

  • "Try the kale salad. No -- just order it and be amazed. Everything was top notch although the waiter seemed surprised Inwanted to order the salad and the salmon entree. I allowed him to talk me into the meatball soup instead. It was very nice but the salmon preparation did sound more interesting. Wines are by the glass and some unusual things are offered. Don't skip dessert here either. Wine is what pulls the whole thing together at Ckaudine. Save room for Sauternes."

  • "A very small French restaurant right on the corner of Claude Lane and Bush St in the heart of the French District. Modern decor, food with riffs on traditional French cuisine. Our meal was delicious."

  • "Claudine is the perfect post-work spot for a glass or two of wine and small plates with coworkers or cozy date-night. The small space is really charming and the staff is super friendly and accommodating."
