Fleur de Lys
Wonderful dining experience!Took my wife there for her birthday. The food was exquisite. The wait staff was incredibly attentive to us.; almost felt like we were the only patrons dining. The only ding on the restaurant was that it was a little too dark. It honesty was difficult to read the menu and wine list. Not an inexpensive evening out, but well worth the experience celebrating her birthday. Glad we went to Fleur de Lys!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, as alwaysMy favorite restaurant in the city, and it never disappoints. Always elegantly prepared with wines perfectly paired. It is always hard to choose the courses, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. I had the Dungeness crab salad, halibut, and buffalo steak. All excellent, but I'm not really a fan of the coffee coating on the buffalo. Had to try it though.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT EXPERIENCEA great experience in food creation that will test your taste senses!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time in SFIt was my first time visiting San Francisco and Fleur de Lys was defiantly one of the highlights. The food is outrageously expensive, but worth every penny.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had dinner at Fleur deWe had dinner at Fleur de Lys for our anniversary and it did not disappoint. We would definitely return for another special occasion.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal and serviceExcellent meal and service. We had the 4-course vegetarian (husband also had wine pairing), and each course was a work of art and tasted fabulous. My favorite was the ragout, but all courses were outstanding and desserts wonderful. The wait staff were attentive, but not intrusive, and were exceptional. We even got to meet Chef Hubert Keller! Fleur was perfect for dinner before our musical at the Curran. We parked at the Mason O'Farrell Garage near the Curran, walked a few blocks to Fleur, so convenient.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a memorable experience. WeIt was a memorable experience.

Memorable birthday dinner.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI selected the vegetarianI selected the vegetarian 4 course meal. To pull off a superb vegetarian meal is the true test of any restaurant. My meal was far beyond superb. It was spiced correctly, balanced beyond belief, and delicous. It has been three days since we were there and I cannot stop thinking about the food, the service, and the experience. Flour de lys must be experienced to understand the perfect meal. My compliments to Chef Keller and his crew.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!Yes there have been mixed reviews, but you simply must experience this as it is perfection. My wife and I had the chef's 4 course tasting menu and it was truly amazing. We ate here on the first night of a week long stay in SF/Sonoma area and it set the bar so high that we have yet to get close to it at any of the other places we have been to.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFelt like I was a guest atFelt like I was a guest at Downton Abbey! The Fleurburger for dessert was really fun!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my birthday and HubertIt was my birthday and Hubert Keller himself came out and shook my hand and wished me a happy birthday after our meal.

Following our late afternoon wedding, we went to Fleur de Lys for our celebration dinner before flying to Paris for our honeymoon. What a great warm up for the real thing in France. Paris restaurants having nothing over Fleur de Lys.
Everything was great - food amazing, wines expertly paired and staff very attentive. Every course was a new experience. The crab salad and scallops were particularly wonderful. The extra little plates and tastes offered were a welcome surprise.
We would recommend Fleur de Lys to anyone for that very special dinner.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated our 10 year AnniversaryCelebrated our 10 year Anniversary here and LOVED it everything about our experience. Reminded us of Le Cirque in Vegas. The service was phenomenal! Have also been to Chez TJ in Mountain View and there is NO comparing the two - Fleur de Lys wins by FAR!!! Thank you for a wonderful night!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Fleur de Lys is the perfectThe Fleur de Lys is the perfect marriage of traditional San Francisco class blended with an atmosphere conducive to complete relaxation. The staff is professional, but in a welcoming way. Every effort is made on their part to make the night a perfect one. We have chosen, wisely, this restaurant as our "special place," celebrating twenty anniversaries there. They never disappoint. The food is fantastic, the wait-persons extraordinary. We look forward to our next night there.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful works of food artWonderful works of food art with a definite sense of humor.

Really made us feel at ease and welcome. Amazing flavors and inventive treatments (the "burger" dessert was fun and unique), such as escargot in a garlicky broth and puff pastry, melt-in-your mouth venison with a rich cocoa-infused red wine reduction, halibut treated with sweet and savoury pea and carrot purees, and sky-high dreamy souffles.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMust go!Incredible experience from the moment you walk on.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingTo start, This was the best meal my wife and I have ever had. This was also the most expensive meal we have ever had. We each did the 4 course meal with wine paring. Each course was better than the first. I had the swordfish and their signature filet mignon and OMG I was not disappointed. We each had the souffle for dessert. Well for our first dessert. As we were on our honeymoon, which the hostess had asked about they had decided to spoil us a bit and brought us two additional deserts. It was an incredible night.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding from beginningOutstanding from beginning to end!

We were very slightly disappointed with one small aspect of our wine, and I do mean Small, and the restaurant went nicely overboard to make up for it. The way a fine restaurant should.
Meanwhile, food was pretty luscious.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a fabulous time. TheWe had a fabulous time. The food was fantastic. We had the opportunity to meet Chef Keller.

We were in the main room, but did not feel like we were apart of anyone else's conversation. Service was impeccable. Everything cooked to perfection, sauces that you just wanted to lick the plate. I will return, mmmm good!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, from the greetingExcellent, from the greeting at the door. The decor is beautiful, but also very functional. The beautiful drapes absorb noise, so each table can have an intimate dining experience without "back ground noise". The food is beyond delicious; It is perfection.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a wonderful experience!What a wonderful experience! My husband and I went for my birthday and I couldn't have asked for a better present. We each had the 5 course w/ wine pairings and I was stuffed to the max at the end of it. As a special touch they wrote happy birthday with my name in chocolate : )3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticAbsolutely the best sf has to offer. Always consistently amazing and memorable.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWell, I've now tried it...Fleur de Lys deserves its respect. It's a romantic spot. The service is at the top - old world European michelin star style (note the napkin folding difference). The service and atmosphere were the standouts for the evening. Having been to my share of notable chefs' restaurants in the US, I found the overall experience at Keller's joint to be above average but not on par with his contemporaries, and it came down to the food. I felt it was overpriced for the level of food and portions (be prepared for some small sizes - I mean 1980's Manhattan small). In the end I am glad to have experienced dinner here, but I will not be returning nor would I recommend it to someone else barring a wedding proposal being the plan for that night.11/20/2012 12:00:00 AM
