Frascati is a chic little spot! We
got a window table and enjoyed the cheese plate, the lamb risotto, and the duck. The cheese plate featured a few really outstanding cheeses, especially the ashes brie (or other soft cheese - can't remember). All I know is that it was smokey and cheesy and simply delicious! The risotto was very good and so was the duck! I can only give it four stars though because it wasn't the #1 on my list of restaurants in SF. Outstanding, yes, but not the creme-de-la-creme. Still totally worth going to, though!!"

I was looking forward to a
fantastic experience but was disappointed. The food was so-so (gnocchi, mushroom bruschetta, salad, ravioli). Our server seemed miffed that she had to take our order. We got the impression she was peeved at having to show up for work. I do understand what it's like being in the service industry, which is exactly why restaurants might make sure their servers are service-oriented people. Patrons ought to feel as if they are welcome, not a bother. At any rate, even if it was great service/food, the noise level here isn't for me. I prefer talking over shouting."

Used to live in Bay Area, and this
was my favorite SF restaurant. Moved away several years ago, came back for a visit, and was thrilled to find Frascati just as wonderful as I remembered: creative menu, top-notch food, gracious service, terrific wine list."

Absolutely great dinning
experience. Book ahead for reservations- take the Hyde St cable car to their front door and step inside for a fantastic dinner,"

We went with our friends and
shared all the entrees with each other. The baked chicken, lamp risotto and pork chop were absolutely amazing. Will definitely go back again. The wine list is one of the best we've seen. Great Russian Hill restaurant."

Beautiful food, fantastic
selection of wines and great service. The dark and white chocolate bread and butter pudding in particular is just incredible. I have been going to this restaurant for over 10 years from when I lived just around the corner to now, whenever I get to visit San Francisco, and it never disappoints."

What a great spot. The food was
tremendous. Try the Halibut! They were very attentive without being overbearing. We will definitely return"

Thank you for a wonderful, very
special birthday dinner overall at Frascati. Food, service and ambience impeccable. Extremely friendly, professional, very knowledgeable and generous service. Top of my list for a special occasion."

The food, service and ambience of
this restauarant are outstanding. The food and service were excellent on this last visit. The menu changes on a regular basis so they are always different things to try. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone."

A gem with high standards. The
server was VERY knowledgeable and knew the subtleties of all the offered wines. Dishes were perfect. Steak tartar didn't grab me but was pleasant. All else was perfect. $250 including tip for 3 diners, with wine and a desert."

Although parking is always an
"adventure", Frascati never fails to have a great variety of entrees, wine selection for all palates and budgets, topped by their attentive, yet unobtrusive servers and charming casual ambience."

And they do it well. Tucked into a
Russian Hill corner, this friendly man and wife operation serves superb food and serves it well. We thoroughly enjoyed our sautéed sardines and breast of duck dishes and hope to return to this enjoyable and obviously well-managed restaurant as soon as we can."

Owner's Rebecca and Jon truly know
what it means to provide impeccable service to their clientele. From the ambiance to the food, everything was well coordinated and made us feel like we were there only patrons (when the restaurant was full). Jon gave us a great table on the second floor overlooking the first floor / kitchen. Best seats in the house as the kitchen is open and you get to see the chefs in action. They had a very reasonable corkage fee as well as prix fix menu. Our waitress made great recommendations throughout the night and we left with a full stomach and a big smile on our faces. The gift bag at the end of the night was also a very nice touch. Thanks gain Rebecca and Jon!"

This was a great dining
experience. The staff was just perfectly tuned -- attentive but not hovering. My date and I split an appetizer and salad and then each had an entree -- everything was wonderful. In particular, their roast chicken rocked. Our table was in the window and we could easy converse and be heard without distraction. It was a lovely night."

I’ve been going to Frascati for
over 7 years. The food and the service have been consistently very good. You will not be disappointed. It will be a memorable dining experience"

Frascati has lovely, attentive,
helpful, gracious service staff. Food is always delicious. Nothing outrageous, pretentious, goofy. Just straight-up, well-prepared food you can count on. Plus you can talk: you can hear and be heard. Never disappointed."

Good food, great service, and
special attention to detail. We will go again and take friends."

We had the filet which was cooked
perfectly and enjoyed a bottle of wine recommended by the server. The hostess and host were welcoming as we entered and we were seated at the table requested."

"こんなところにいいレストランがあるの？というくらい静かな住宅地にありますが、ケーブルカーハイドラインのグリーンストリートの角にあり、わかりやすいです。小さなレストランですが、肩ひじ張らず雰囲気はいいです。スタッフはとても親切です。米国でもこんな美味しいものが食べられるのかというくらい美味しく、日本人にもあいます。メインはポークとチキンにしましたが、美味しく、日本人にも適量です。たくさん食べられないので、前菜は1品とチーズプレートにしましたが、チーズはとてもよかったです。ワインもいいです。The restaurant is located at the corner of Hyde st. and Green st. It is easy to access because Cable car Hyde Line stops in front.It is not so large; however, atmosphere is good with semi-formal style at home. All staffs are very kind and friendly. We ordered a couple of kinds of a glass wine the staff recommended, which were all tasty and fantastic.Main dishes were also and good alright as beyond challenge. If your stomach is not so large, we recommend cheese plate with four kinds of excellenｔ."

We booked Frascati after reading
other reviews on Open Table. Very lovely neighborhood restaurant. We sat upstairs - it was fine but would be nicer to be on street level. We are out-of-towners, but if we returned I would request that (if possible). We had the pork ravioli appetizer, and the scallops and pork chop for entrees. Everything was delicious. The service was very good. Overall we were very pleased with our meal and experience."

Reservations were made early in
December for a "meet the families dinner" before my daughter's New Year's Eve wedding. Everyone was from out of town and I relied upon the rave reviews I found online when chosing Frascati's. They are well deserved. The day of the dinner we had to make a last minute change in our reservation time due to a family emergency. They were able to make the change despite our large group of 11 people - Thank you! Our server Laura was wonderful to work with. She was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The food was excellent ! We must have tried almost everything on the menu and it was all wonderful :) I loved that Frascati's had a comfortable yet fine dining vibe. I can't wait to visit again someday."

We booked this restaurant based on
Trip Advisor Reviews and we were looking for something away from the touristy areas. We were not disappointed. The restaurant itself is in a lovely neighborhood where we greatly enjoyed our walk home after a big meal. The ambience is second to none, very cosy, very european. The service was excellent and the food offered on the menu was different. My husband had ordered the fresh pasta with rabbit sausage- not something you see on many menus- and it was delicious. I myself had ordered the risotto- which is hard to go wrong with - and the pomegranate provided nice bursts of flavour. The appetizers were outstanding and again, different from the usual fare. We will definitely be back"

We loved it. The place is small
and quaint, elegantly decorated with perfect white linens and a very cosy feel. The food was exceptional, even though the chef changes the menu every day my venison was excellent, as good as the one I had at Berlin's famed Vau (one star) restaurant and the wine selection also extraordinary, clearly done with great knowledge. And of course, the service, as good as we had in San Francisco on this trip, attentive and with suggestions to make our experience unforgettable. Wonderful"

The four of us had an excellent
dining experience at Frascati's. We shared a plate of gnocchi and a pear salad, which were delicious. The half chicken was a big hit for our entrees. We probably should have passed on dessert because we were already full. The flan was delicious but the chocolate bread pudding (with ice cream) was too much and too heavy. We had a zinfandel from the Neal Family vineyard (Napa). It was fantastic! We plan to come back next time we are in the City (and will try to use better judgement when it comes to ordering dessert!)."

My husband and I celebrated our
anniversary at Frascati for the third year in a row -- after the incredible service and fabulous meal I hope to return far more often. Frascati is intimate and cozy, there isn't a bad table in the house, perfect for a romantic dinner for two or intimate meal for four. The ultimate highlight and the reason we will keep coming back is the somelier Justin. He might not have the longest wine list in town but he is always pouring something interesting and delicious. He's knowledgeable and loves to share his recent discoveries. My husband and I work in wine but he still thrills us every time!"

Maybe the best pork chop I've ever
had. Service was over the top with attentive wait staff who were there when needed, but not in our space if you know what I mean. Intimate little neighborhood restaurant which we love in the City. Right on cable car line which we then grabbed for a late night irish coffee at the BV. Great evening"

My favorite place in Russian Hill.
Great food with professional and friendly service."
Dined on 12/12/2013
Food very good. Bizarre
service. Even kinda nice waitress left after entree, couldn't find, with dessert offer was told she "Was sent home", with other unknown server "finishing up" services. I guess they wanted to save $$$, Original server never even told us she was leaving...not best practice :("
Dined on 12/3/2013
My husband and I love this quaint
little restaurant, which is embedded so peacfully on the corner just up the street from our place in Russian Hill. We've been twice, and have had excellent experiences both times. For entrees, the two dishes that stood out in my opinion were 1) the rabbitt and 2) the roasted chicken. I know what you're thinking - chicken? Why would you order chicken, are you nuts? But oh, this chicken will change your mind about ordering chicken out. It was the juiciest, best tasting chicken I've ever tasted. Also, typically my husband and I are not into dessert, but the warm chocolate cake was calling out to us from the menu, screaming "eat me!!" So glad we caved! What a delicious ending to such a great meal!"

restaurant and i love to take visitors to see what that means..menu always interesting but not intimidating. wine list is excellent, servers knowledgeable. note that it is small and can be very noisy.."

The reviews that I read drew me to
Frascati and I was not disappointed. The service was extraordinary-the water in my glass never went below half-full. We had the best halibut I ever ate and the filet mignon was extra special. I wish I could eat here once a week, but the travel from NY is just too much. Anyway, hope to return next time I'm in SF."
