Quality without pretentionDecent portions of well prepared food was served properly.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFrench SurpriseI found Curbside on Open Table's Dine about list. Although very small the service and food was wonderful. The best French Onion soup ever! This is a real bargain-both food and wine.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful Lunch SpotTucked in on California St, just off of Fillmore's mad rush of people, is a sweet, delightful touch of Paris...a small bistro, with a few outdoor tables and a comfy indoor space. The ambiance is welcoming, the waiter was helpful, attentive and made great recommendations on both our food and wine selections. The food was delicious and a good size portion. We shared yummy crab cakes, and a tasty light veggie quiche, both came with a perfectly dressed mixed greens salad.....dessert was to die for, a warm soft brownie with ice cream and whipped cream....a perfect afternoon lunch. I'll be back.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat small local cafeWe have dined at Curbside before and returned because we like it. The food is very good, main course portions are ample but not over-sized (a good thing) allowing prices to be reasonable, it's quiet owing to it's small size and service is attentive and friendly. Most of us had the lamb chop special this night. There were two small chops that were very tender and tasty with a small side of vegetables and either mashed potatoes or fries as a substitute. Wine selections are not extensive but sufficient and prices are also very reasonable by the glass or bottle. We'll certainly be back again.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always good.
UnfortunatThe food is always good.
Unfortunately I found the crab cakes to be too salty for my taste- but this was the first time I was not fully satisfied.
The waiter was very good and pleasant5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect neighborhood spotPerfect neighborhood spot for lunch. Relaxed atmosphere, charming decor, attentive service, and tasty cuisine at a reasonable price. The salmon filet over house salad was delicious. We'll be back!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMthe prix fixe available beforethe prix fixe available before 6pm is a real bargain - starter, entrée, dessert and a glass of wine for $20!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood restaurant!Great neighborhood restaurant! Our food was really good, the crab cakes were delicious as was the smoked chicken salad. They are a busy little restaurant with only one server which can take some time, but the ambiance and food is meant to be savored and enjoyed, so to have a little extra time was appreciated. Will definitely be back!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA great neighborhood spotA great neighborhood spot with a good variety of dishes. Love their breakfast food for lunch!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNice neighborhood French restaurantNice neighborhood French restaurant. Decor was pleasant. Menu was good, with several specials. Food was not spectacular, but was very good and prices were extremely reasonable. Best part of the meal was the excellent service. One member of our group did not care for her risotto entree. The dish was quite salty and had a slightly unusual flavor to it--nothing wrong with it, but she did not care for the taste. The waiter saw this and offered to bring her something else at no charge. She declined, and the waiter offered to remove this item from the bill. Again my friend declined, so the waiter finally offered to bring her a glass of wine at no charge-which she accepted.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful French bistroPerfect little French bistro with excellent fine dining choices (from a fall-off-the-bone lamb shank to risotto, pot roast to stuffed pork chop). Classics like French Onion Soup and pear/ Gorgonzola/ candied walnut salad are spot on. The wine lost is well curated and reasonably priced. Service is attentive and friendly, neither overbearing nor too casual. We love this place and highly recommend it. They even over an amazing Prix fixe menu before 6pm for $20/3 courses - incredible!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
