    i've never had a burger in a lettuce wrap--and it was delicious, no doughy bun, just nicely prepared hamburger and crunchy lettuce as delivery vehicle... highly recommend it!

    It was a lively evening watching the world series, so I would rather rate it on another occasion. Of course, it was loud and crowded so the server was extremely busy. But it was a fun place to go with friendly people. I only had an appetizer, so it was difficult to rate. But my appetizer was delicious.

    Sad that such a great location has such mediocre food ? The owners need to try the dishes and re formulate the recipes and the cooking? Since the owners are affiliated with another restaurant they should keep tabs on this 2nd attempt ? So far its a sad attempt ?

    We have only been there one other time. Service and food great in this hip little place that attracts both locals and tourists. It is very relaxed but upbeat. The Brussel Sprouts "chips" were terrible-burnt and not hot. The dip was uninspiring. The sandwiches were good, nothing special. The staffer was nice enough and polite but not very attentive. I'm not rushing back. Id rather spend more money and have an exceptional experience at their sister restaurant Le Garage where i have been many times

    I was meeting an old friend with whom I had traveled to Europe many years ago. She is studying French in SF, so I thought the French cafe would be fun. We felt like we were back in Paris in a little street cafe, without the noise. The food was delicious and the service excellent... even to the point of finding a parking place for me right in front of the restaurant.

    Food was overall good especially the Frissee Cobb Salad and the House Made Chicken Liver Mousse. The service was some of the worst we have ever experienced. Ordered food, 5 minutes later waiter came back and asked "what did you order again?" 3 of 5 entrees come our quickly followed by 4th a few minutes later. We wait for 5th and then hail other waiter to ask our waiter. "It will be right out." Ended up never coming along with the beer I ordered. All we got was a "sorry man". It seems they were all too accepting of the lax service. How can you have a good dinner experience when someone does not get their meal!

    There are quite a few good places to eat in Southern marin, but we keep coming back to this spot for food that is fresh, inventive and a real delight for a light meal. I find that I keep ordering the ever changing special of the evening each time, most recently a beautifully prepared serving of Sole with a perfect sauce under and around, but not right on it, so you could actually decide how much sauce you wanted in a bite. The menu is diverse and humorous in presentation, and dining is delight. Do not expect midwest size portions though.

    We love coming to Fast Food Francais, and would not hesitate to return, my only complaint this time were the cold $7.00 fries, and buttermilk biscuits were close to being doorstops. I would have complained but the service was so slow I didn't bother. The other members of my party enjoyed their meal, but were dismayed by the service.

    We've always liked their hamburgers and outstanding french fries, however, this time we had their heirloom tomato salad with fried green tomatoes/frisee/walnuts and it was terrific. We have just come back from a driving trip to Charleston and Savannah and FFF's version surpasses anything we had in the south. Wedge salad had ample hunks of the blue cheese, excellent bacon. Braised pork ribs with tomatoes and gigante white beans was excellent, as was the oriechette with cheese. All in all an excellent meal. I think this is one of my favorite restaurants in Sausalito which has mostly tourist traps along Bridgeway but Caledonia has Da Vito and FFF, both very good.

    My friend ordered a hamburger no cheese. It came with cheese. Instead of remaking it, they scraped it off and left remnants of it. She is allergic to cheese. They brought it back three times before they made her another! I ordered the summer salad, added salmon. Salmon was way overcooked and the salad was bla. Six little tator tots for $7! Crazy! Our server was very unprofessional. Would not return but the restaurant next door looked great.

    It's easy, it's casual, the food is great, everyone is so VERY nice. and they take and then honor their reservations. I live in SF but often head across the bridge for a change of scenery... and their simple but tasty menu, great drinks as well. The menu isn't extensive, but what they offer is top notch. I am never stressed when I am in their care.

    Perhaps because we were there the day after Bastille Day (and I presume they had been busy) from start to finish the service was "tired". Long waits for everything seemed to be the norm. Since we like their other properties we will consider giving them another chance.

    Great service, too. Would have been nice to have a nod to Bastille Day. We went hoping to celebrate the French national holiday. They had a fantastic appetizer platter (more than enough for us two wee women) in honor of the World Cup. Okay. Maybe that's close enough for Le Jazz.

    We enjoyed our food but our waiter was either stoned or his mind was outside on his skateboard! We were never served water and when asking for bread he hesitated and replied well ill see if can drum some up!!!! Our bus boy was terrific! brought silver, water without asking and BREAD! He should have been the waiter and the waiter should be selling surfboards at Tam Junction! The table behind us also had trouble with the same waiter . Time for management to step up and review their staff! Also tons of kids whose parents thought they were at Chucky Cheese.

    Took some friends from out of town here and everyone was happy with their selections. We tried several small plates and a couple of entries and all were tasty and very good. The potato soup was excellent and it came in a HUGE bowl so we all got a taste. The menu has items that you don't see in other restaurants which is a real bonus for us since we eat out at least 1-2 times a week. We will come back again.

    We had excellent food, and I will be back to watch the World Cup finals, but service was a downer. Our server clearly wanted to be elsewhere and it showed in his service. Unfortunate, because the food and ambiance were great, hopefully a one-off example of the waitstaff.

    OmnivoreVIP
    Dined on 6/29/2014
    When ordering drinks, and then dropping off the check. After the drink order, we had to wait over 30 minutes and finally had to flag down another person (assistant waiter?) to order the main meal. All other times, the busboy came to drop off food and drinks. No one else came by and asked if we needed anything, if the food was good, or anything. The food is pricey for the simple fare it is (basically sandwiches and some small plates). The restaurant was not busy, maybe a little over half full, so the slow service was puzzling. I'll take a cue from the service, and won't be hurrying back here soon...

    What a great night out with friends for my birthday. The food was amazing, service was prompt, friendly and consistent.

    Made advance reservations for a quiet table for privacy. When I arrived they seated me in frint of the big screen tv with the world cup game on. I asked twice for a table away from the tv and screaming kids. Specifically, I wanted a table by the front door near the windows but they said no. Service was rushed and not very personal or friendly.

  • No onions with my gimlet, please!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 6/11/2014
    I have eaten at 3F many times and have been happy with the experience. The service has always been fine. BUT, on June 11, I invited my foodie pal to dine with me at 3F. The night began with my pal getting cocktail onions on her GIMLET. Onions belong on a GIBSON, not a lime based Gimlet. She sent it back, I was embarrassed. I had suggested this place. The night went completely downhill after that with one serving disaster, after another. The waiter actually threw the bill on the table before my pal got her entree! We finally had the Manager intervene, he was wonderful, served my pal her entree, (my entree had come before my appetizer), and comped us the appetizers. Very unpleasant experience except for the Manager intervening.

    Both carmelized Brussel Sprouts and Squash Blossom appetizers sounded better than tasted. Both way too greasy; not refined. Main entree flank steak with Bernaise. Flank steak was so slobbered in thick heavy vapid sauce,You could barely find the few tiny pieces of it that were in there. Too bad, bc place is cute. If its trying to be upscale glorified bar food, fine. Myb mediocre tastes better over a beer or three!
