  • "great food. prepared well, fresh, a little something extra with the flavors."

  • "Pricey for what it offers; but interesting and good cuisine: not the best. but adequate (Fast-food French style)."

  • "Another great night, great food as we took some friends who had never been. They loved it and we will be back soon. Food is excellent while laid back and the atmosphere is invigorating."

  • "We were excited to check this place out, and we were very impressed with the Caesar salad, which is made with kale. My spouse got a beef, potato dish that was quite good, but my $13 grass-fed burger was quite so-so, and it had no sides. It also didn't seem they made the patty there, but I didn't ask. But the disappointing part was the service - the guy seemed indifferent, didn't know that much about the food, it took a long time to get the entrees after the salad was done, and then he didn't pay us any mind even after we spent 10 minutes trying to flag him down to pay the bill. We finally got up and paid the hostess. It's a bummer when a good start ends with real annoyance at a waiter who doesn't much seem to care."

  • "Noisy crowded. Actually deafening. Couldn't speak to the people I was with. The burger was good but you can get good burgers in a lot better places. Not going back"

  • "A very nice modern French-American restaurant. I had the fish filet sandwich and my wife had the fried chicken. Both were very good, but I kind of wish the fish sandwich was a little bit bigger. For sides we also went with the brussel sprout chips (which we would definitely recommend) and tater tots. The tater tots were a more healthy non fried version. Although truth be told we kind of wanted and would have welcomed the unhealthier crunchy cafeteria kind. Warning! If you're going to do street parking be aware. For some areas the parking is for 2 hrs only and NOT free after 6pm unless you're a resident."

  • "The food was mostly fried and the presentation was unappealing. The service was worse. We hadn't even finished our bottle of wine when we were served our check and told they needed to turn the table. Please know that we had ordered a $50 bottle of wine and were finishing our dinner within 1.5 hours."

  • "Been wanting to try F3 since it was featured on Bargain Bites. We live in SF so there is no shortage of great restaurants; glad we made the trip to Sausalito. The food was excellent! I'm hoping they find their way to SF and open a restaurant here. If not, we'll be traveling to Sausalito more frequently to try all the menu items."

  • "Excellent food. Many interesting new things to try. One of our local favorites."

  • "I found F3 through yelp and open table after searching for a space large enough for a casual bridal shower. Everything worked out so perfectly! The ambiance was perfect for our group-- not too quiet, not too loud. The service was excellent, and the food was delicious. Everytime I called to adjust our reservations or to ask questions, the staff were friendly and very helpful, and even proactively called me as well to confirm final head counts. They were extremely accommodating and allowed our party to come early to decorate the upstairs space for the bridal shower, which happened to go along perfectly with F3's orange decor. I could not have hoped for a better experience or place to host the shower. I am definitely coming back!"

  • "Enjoyed food and service. The soups are becoming a highlight of the menu to me. Desserts were great and staff helped the celebration of my birthday. Thanks..."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Overall a very pleasing culinary evening. Knowledgeable staff serving well prepared dishes of buttermilk chicken, pork ribs, Brussel sprouts in a relaxed, comfortable room. There is NOTHING pretentious about this place. You get a great meal at a great price with no attitude, a lovely way to enjoy eating out in Sausalito."

  • "Had a wonderful evening at your restaurant Friday night. My parents were visiting and they were very happy with everything--which is great for me as I love this restaurant and they are pretty hard to please."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "This is a cool modern bistro with small plates that are delicious and ample (bang for your buck). Friendly and fast service, a menu that is really more American with an energetic twist of French than it is classic French. We had a dinner of 4 plates that we semi-shared and enjoyed very much. Good wines all at $9 a glass and a good pour. Drawback: Noisy! It was bad enough with the din of the room being very loud, on top of it they had a d.j. playing euro music with a throbbing beat.....really?! Maybe it isn't a nightly routine, but it felt out of place and jarring. Note to non-locals: Streets around F3 have residents only parking, poorly marked. We got a parking ticket at 9 pm, the sign we should have seen was way up the street!"

  • "Food was decent except all the tiny tomatoes in my salad were literally rotten. I wasn't able to tell from appearance as they prepare them but super gross when I ate one. Friendly servers. They apologized for the issue but I didn't make a big deal out of it. Nice location, relaxed."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "This was my second visit to F3. This time I chose it for a business lunch. Unfortunately it took more than 30 minutes for the meal to arrive because the kitchen "missed " the order. The food remains attractive for a spin on fast food with a gallic touch. (My boudin blanc with onions was very tasty). However, the service glitch overshadowed the appreciation of the meal, and I'm not sure my colleagues would return."

  • "Been there three times in the last 2 weeks. Lunch and early dinner quieter. Saturday dinner super noisy and crazy."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Don't know if this is American comfort food translated into French or the other way around -- probably the former. It's fun creative food that doesn't take itself too seriously except that it's really good. Service is good, wine and beer lists interesting if limited. Entertaining and satisfying!"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "This is the second time I've been to F3 in the past 90 days. And I encountered the same thing: takes way too long to be able to order a drink when you arrive or to get a drink delivered. And service can be spotty throughout dinner and certainly afterwards (when you're kind of abandoned, rather than be asked if you want something further)."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "We were hugely disappointed. The hostess was nasty from the start. Sat us right by the bathroom when other tables were open, and gave lame excuse of other customers requesting the other specific tables, which along a wall of tables, not special. we contemplated leaving but stayed bc we had a gift certificate. the food was bleh. They were out of the special soup at 7 pm. The brussel sprouts app was great, the duck and fried chicken sandwiches weren't worth the price. The chocolate mouse was horrible. Like jello pudding. And really bad accustics- everyone was screaming to talk to their dinner companions and driving bass too loud. Then they wouldn't accept the gift certificate , so we were wishing we'd left when we had a chance."

  • "The best burgers! Plus they change the menu regularly. Very helpful, friendly, happy staff - very courteous - just a really great place!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Something about it just works for me. I love the French interpretations of American comfort foods. They brings back many memories - both of my childhood and of visits to France. The food is also amazingly well priced. Although very busy I have always been able to get a table on short-notice on Friday or Saturday nights - so it's great for last minute plans."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I've had some good meals here and some not so good. Prices are very inexpensive. They could raise them a few dollars and improve the food quality. Considering its the folks from L' Garage they could do better."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Food is so delicious and different!! Prices are moderate... Great value given the high quality and creativity of the menu. Wonderful spot to meet friends and have a great meal!! Beef soup ... Brussels sprout chips... Yum!"

  • "We went to FFF as a party of four on a Friday night, and found the noise-level to be very loud both at the bar and at our table, which made conversation hard. We all had burgers, and I've noticed that from previous visits (for takeout), that the burger sizes and quality has tapered off, which was disappointing. Service was OK, not good nor bad."

  • "Great atmosphere and diverse and eclectic food options. The brussel sprout chips are AMAZING!! Great drinks and fun for groups."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "The menu at Fast Food Francais is wonderful......there are so many choices. But, my favorite has been the burger made with lamb. Recently I tried the Iceberg lettuce salad with the wild boar bacon and that was great. I will be back again soon."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "Great selection of moderately priced yet interesting and delicious choices...Thierry,who is in charge is always gracious and super charming...all in all,a real asset of a place for Marin!!"

  • "The kale salad was boring, flavorless, and uninteresting. The F3 appetizer was good, but nothing spectacular. We also got the chicken wings which were boring and flavorless too. Our waiter Michael was awesome however."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "The food here is absolutely awesome! We shared the brussel sprouts chips -- our 7 year olds ate so much, we ordered another round. We also shared the tater tots (like deep fried mashed potatoes) and the cheese fries (with adult cheese, so yummy). The lamb burger was perfect and all of the accompaniments were just right. I look forward to many more meals here and to trying all of the menu offerings."

  • "Just a fun place to entertain someone or go with someone special. The food is wonderful, the service good, and everyone just seems to be having a great time!"

  • "I am always delighted when I find a place that can turn an ordinary food like burgers into extraordinary! The is chic but casual. I had the BOS burger and it was the most perfect burger I have tasted --from the bun to the meat to the other bun. it was SO DELISH. I've also had the fish sticks, as recommended by the waitress. It was different from other fried fish I've had before. It was interesting, but I wouldn't say it was the best thing ever. BOS burger, however, was definitely a top-notch. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who visits Sausalito."

  • "F3 has amazing food! The back room is very casual and family friendly. The fast food is delicious, and not fast food, price-wise."

  • "Fast Food Francais was okay. Nothing terrible about it but not much to make it stand out. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there again."

  • "what a little gem of a place! The burgers may appear small at first, but boy are they rich, tasty and satisfying. Fries are perfect as are all of the other sides. The maitre d' has a wonderful and welcoming personality and always makes you feel like a valued patron. And the French accent is a sure killer for the ladies. I haven't sat at the bar but from across the restaurant it looks like quite the scene. Will definitely be back with friends!"

  • "A great little restaurant. Although we reserved for an early table (6:45) on a weeknight, it did not appear to be overly crowded and we probably could have walked in. The food was of excellent quality and well-prepared according to our requests. We had a reasonably priced bottle of Rhone wine which was a bit tannic, but a good food wine. The server was willing and mostly able. It was clear he did not have a great deal of experience, but he was sincere and trying his best. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "F3 is truly Fast - we enjoyed our meal in under 45 mins wthout a rush. Food was great in a casual bar sort of way. Brussels sprouts chips are a standout, but sandos and salads good enough to share. Francais - yes just French enough and no attitude. Great for before a movie."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Great bar although we wish they stocked Canadian Club. Appetizers are terrific--especially the brussle sprouts chips. Who would think?"
