Great FindGreat overall experience. Found it by chance riding the cable car. All of our meals were good but the duck was outstanding.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food!I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFrascati's in SFMy fiancee and I enjoyed this quiet & quaint little mediterranean restaurant in San Francisco. It was in a nice neighborhood setting on Nob Hill with lots of trees surrounding it. The view was pleasant. Service was great; my swordfish was fantastic! After telling the waitres that she liked her fish flaky, my fiancee's halibut was a little undercooked in one area but otherwise tasty.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood feelMy wife and I visited this place and were very pleased. It's nestled in a quiet area of Russian Hill. The staff is very friendly and the wait staff was very helpful. It's really a very pleasant and relaxing place to have a nice dinner. We had the cheese plate to start, which had a brie, goat's milk cheese, a blue cheese, and something else. It was what I expected and was very well presented. The potato gnocchi was also tasty. We had a pasta dish for dinner which was above average. All in all, I liked the place and would recommend it, especially for a romantic dinner.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSo good I want to move toSo good I want to move to the neighborhood, or even upstairs.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty!!!Food was delicious!!

Service is very good and very attentive.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely dinnerOverall excellent. Food was delicious. The sardine appetizer was very tasty and not at all too salty. The duck and spinach salad was excellent--not overdressed and had a good amount of duck. And the halibut was perfectly prepared. With the exception of our server, who was on the edge of unfriendly, service, in general, was very good. We'll be back!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWhenever I visit San Francisco,Whenever I visit San Francisco, I make it a point to visit Frascati! What a wonderful restaurant. Amazingly good food.

We really enjoyed everything about this place, from the fresh and tasty food to the extremely helpful staff.
I would highly recommend it.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of our favoriteThis is one of our favorite restaurants in SF. Worth trying if one appreciates San Francisco dining where the restaurant has a cozy but vibrant (neighborhood) feel.
Great decor: high ceiling, cross beams, second level and copper everywhere are nice touches. The attentive and energetic wait staff is excellent.
Sitting in Frascati on Russian Hill, watching the trolley cars roll by on Hyde while eating Mediterranean/Californian-style food makes for a memorable evening.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming Foodie GemSix of us went there after seeing Jersey Boys downtown. Considered taking the cable car to and from but will do that another time. Our reservation was at 6-we got there at 5:20 and found parking out front! Staff welcomed us tho they don't really open till 5:30. Sat upstairs and some of us were able to look down into the energetic amazing ktichen and sou chefs-wow. Food was fantastic, Italian and California organic with lovely options for foodies, vegans, meat lovers. Wonderful wait staff and fun atmosphere. This was my second time there and it continues to delight!
Charming ambience, kind staff and delicious food made for a fun evening!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent across the entireConsistent across the entire meal!
We chose the gnocchi and duck salad for appetizers - both were nicely portioned and hugely flavoursome, and really created anticipation for what was to come.
For entree, the monk fish was perfectly cooked, with a delicious citrus sauce that balanced the creamy potatoe/fennel puree. The steak was tender, cooked exactly to medium rare and really complimented by the tasty jus.
We could only manage a shared pannacotta, which was silky smooth in texture, made more interesting with a crumb and some fruit.
Service was friendly and attentive, and they didn't clear away my husband's plate until I had finished eating which, to me, is the right way to go. No pressure on the slow eater!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING!!From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted with smiling faces and escorted to, what I consider, the best table in the restaurant. We were upstairs in the back loft at the corner table that overlooked a beautifully done window overlooking the street.
We sat down and were once again greeted by a super friendly waitress who was very accommodating. The atmosphere inside was relaxing and romantic. We ordered the octopus salad and gnocchi to start which were exceptional, every bite was mouth watering.
Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, we ordered the chicken and monk fish.. Both, incredible from the first bite to the last. Our waitress was timely and friendly the entire time and I really can't think of one negativ3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the dinner and diningLoved the dinner and dining at this restaurant. We had a premium table in the window. It was so much fun for my guests from Honolulu to be able to watch the cable car go by! Service was impeccable.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMbest duck main course andbest duck main course and octopus salad!!!
can be noisy. Very hard to park in the area.
It was my husband's birthday and they put us all the way in the back in the upstairs room in front of the closet. the table and room felt a little claustrophobic. The food and service were fabulous but the location of the table was dissapointing especially since they had other two people tables available and i did mention a special occasion when making reservations.I felt that regulars did get a different treatment...3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Great location.Great food. Great location. Well worth the visit. We had the steak and the duck and they are both outstanding. Try the COR Cabernet.3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a lovely dining experienceWe had a lovely dining experience at Frascati on a Saturday night. We were seated upstairs where the atmosphere is warm and cozy. The mushroom bruschetta, filet mignon, and monk fish were absolutely delicious. Service was very good, too. I had to drive around the neighborhood for 30 minutes before finally finding parking on Chestnut Street. Turns out I was so glad to have parked there, because the view at sunset and after dark is fabulous (esp. from the top of Lombard St)! If you're not interested in the walking hills or taking in the view, then be sure to take a taxi or cable car - there's really no parking in that neighborhood.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the filet mignon, whichI had the filet mignon, which was excellent. I have steak practically every time I eat out, and this steak had a unique flavor that's hard for me to describe beyond saying that it was fantastic. My wife had the roasted chicken which also had a rich, unique quality that was very good. We didn't have any dessert because there wasn't anything chocolate except for bread pudding--which I hate.
The service was also good. The waitress was warm and friendly without pretending we were long lost friends.
My only complaint was that there were no free refills on soda--maybe it's a San Francisco thing. If I'm dropping a $100 for dinner I'd like a free soda.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFound Frascati first timeFound Frascati first time stumbeling around SF. Wow! Everything is delicious. We took our parents here and everyone kept raving about the food and the wine. We had a california Chardonay that was buttery as we like it. We started with the suculent octopus salad and the to die for stake tartar. We then had some phenomenal entres.
Ending with the home made dessert including the honey macademia icecreame left us wanting to come back soon. Thanks!2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second time atThis was my second time at Frascati. The food and service were excellent. I would recommend this gem to anyone in San Francisco.2/4/2013 12:00:00 AMJust go and enjoyOutstanding food. Outstanding service. A go to place in SF. We were visiting SF & went there based on reviews. Glad we did. The pork chop was cooked perfectly and my wife's gnocchi was absolutely amazing as was her corvina. Just go and enjoy.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
