- Wonderful placecookieVIPDined on 8/2/2014I love, love, love walking through and dining in your amazingly beautiful restaurant. I've never seen anything like it, and I love France. Our waiter Dan was a joy from beginning to end, what a doll he is! I missed your lamb shank, it wasn't on the menu this time. I ordered the lamb in puff pastry and it was yummy but the broth was poured over the pastry as well as the veggies so the pastry lost it's delicate crunch, which was disappointing. My friend ordered the new york steak and didn't like it very much. My two other friends loved their salmon and scallop dishes, and we all loved the souffle.
- Good food, disappointing atmosphereCltFanDined on 7/31/2014We booked this place based on reviews and a general love of French food but were a bit disappointed. The food was good, not outstanding, had limited choices, but the biggest issue was the atmosphere. Cheesy painted walls and too brightly-lit, mostly empty. We won't be back. On the plus side, service was attentive.
- meowpurrVIPDined on 7/26/2014what a gem! Food was so tasty. fix price for 4 course meal.... well worth the dollars. Great food, Great service, creativity on salad. ie, served in round mold, of course without the mold...sliced mangos, sliced avocados, topped with crab and nice presentation around plate. Yum!Special Features:
- Excellent value and qualitySeattliteDined on 7/25/2014Great find near Union Square hotels. Only a block from our hotel, and the hub-bub of Union Square, but surprisingly quiet, refined, and not crowded. The food was very good to excellent--and four courses for $44 is indeed a bargain. The duck confit and the souffle were especially good. Wines very reasonably priced and good quality. Good place for a romantic dinner. Will definitely come back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Diamond in the RoughNoeDudeVIPDined on 6/28/2014How the hell did we miss this place for the last 30 years? They have been here for 45+ and family run the whole time. Excellent traditional French. Best pre-ACT-play place we've found in over 20 years of being subscribers. Terrific !!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Feel like you are back in FrancebinariounoDined on 6/21/2014Had an enjoyable solo dinner here. French waiters and decor lent to a very pleasant atmosphere. Food was very homey and good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Value - Hidden Gemsunnyside1VIPDined on 6/11/2014We have been going to Jeanne D'Arc for many years. It is really a hidden gem. When you walk down the twisted steps to the restaurant you are transformed to a Paris Bistro. The people are really great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good Food, Cute LocationchefpaulDined on 5/30/2014Other than "losing" our reservation and therefore forgetting it was our anniversary, everything else was wonderful. The four course prix fix meal was delicious and very reasonable at $44. There is a wide selection of entrees so you can come back many times and have a different meal each time. We did note, though, that there was not a vegetarian selection. The walls are decorated with tapestires and hand painted with flowers and French scenes, making you feel you are in a very different part of the world than the one you walked in from. It is a nice place to come when you want to be able to talk with friends. The service was fine.Special Features:
- Charming restaurant in a Euro flairSPfoodieDined on 5/10/2014Located in the basement of a French-style boutique hotel between Union Square and Nob Hill, this little restaurant is a little gem complete with a hostess (owner?) and waiter with French accents. They serve a prix fixe menu only so be prepared to dine - not eat and run. Very nice experience before the symphony. We were able to hail a cab quite easily outside to make it to Davies Hall in 15 minutes.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Local accessNeighborDined on 5/1/2014Entrees were not especially notable, but acceptable. Not crowed during week, but somehow felt rushed. Entrees served quickly, waitstaff almost too attentive. Cleared table faster than necessary as if there was a large crowd waiting for tables, although there were only four tables with customers.
- DynahVIPDined on 4/30/2014The prix fixe was a good value. The soup and the salad were great; the main course was uneventful and over shadowed by the first two, plus we were full by now. and we wanted to save room for the souffle! The souffle was very good!I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always charming!SHOPPER1VIPDined on 4/25/2014This is one of the better secrets in San Francisco with the most charming decor and veteran servers. The menu is 4 courses for $42, which is a major bargain in a big city.Special Features:

- San Francisco hidden gemclamDined on 4/18/2014Located in the basement of the Cornell Hotel at Powell and Bush is a delightful French restaurant. The fixed price meal comes with many delicious menu options at a bargain price for The City. The Gran Mariner Soufflé is fantastic. The restaurant is quiet and the service is attentive.Special Features:
- I will definitely go backMattVIPDined on 4/12/2014I will definitely go back to this restaurant. It is lovely. They had a violinist playing and the food was great and reasonable priced. You can't get four courses in many places in SF for $44.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not the relaxed French ambianceQuirkyDined on 4/10/2014Not the relaxed, French ambiance I was hoping for. I tried to tell the Maitre d' / waiter / bus boy that I had made a reservation but he didn't seem interested. I have never been served four courses so fast. The Maitre d' / waiter / bus boy would practically run to our table with the next course. It was so ridiculous that my friend held onto her rack of lamb bones as to fend the Maitre d' / waiter / bus boy from taking our plates. He must have attempted to clear our dinner plates six times in ten minutes. The food was quite tasty and we ate every bite, but the service was such a turn off I could not recommend this place to anyone, well, unless you are in need of a four course dinner in under an hour.
- Hidden Treasure Near Union SquareLarooDined on 4/10/2014If you're looking for the newest and coolest, this is not the place for you. If you're craving old-school French cuisine without a scene, then this place is perfect. We love this restaurant ... it's like dining in an 18th-century grotto. With its four-course, $44 fixed-price menu and solid, reasonable wine list, it's also a bargain.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Birthday dinnerbirthdaydinnerDined on 3/15/2014The service was really bad! The waiter seems to always be in a rush! and forgets to bring what has been ordered often!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Nice quaint restaurant forwayakaDined on 2/20/2014Nice quaint restaurant for a quiet night. A number of two person tables that were not jammed together. Price Fix menu is quite reasonable and the soufflé was wonderful!Special Features:
- Spectacular !BrendaDougVIPDined on 2/15/2014My boyfriend and I came here the Saturday after Valentines Day and enjoyed an amazing 4 course meal. Violin musician made her way around the room playing soft romantic music. Our waiter was top notch. We will come here again and again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing food, good service,G2LADined on 2/13/2014Amazing food, good service, kinda hot and it was hard to find the restaurant since it is in the basement of a hotel.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious Cuisine, Fine ServicesfnativeVIPDined on 2/11/2014We thought every dish perfect. The Rack of Lamb, fresh asparagus, potatoes dauphine? and pear bleu cheese salad were all done to perfection. Grand Marnier Souffle was superior. The service was most attentive in a quaint and charming French ambience.Special Features:
- Classic French, weak wine listFab50Dined on 2/8/2014This is an interesting place, located on the basement level of an old hotel. Lovely murals on the walls, and a refreshingly quiet place. I could actually talk and listen to our group of four without shouting. Very nice. Food is well prepared, if a bit predictable. Menu items are standard french fare. The waitress knew nothing about the wine list, and when she got someone to help her, he turned out to be one of the busboys who knew even less. And they don't have after dinner wines, like muscat or port, which I found odd for a French restaurant. Best part was the quiet. Good romantic place to have decent french food.Special Features:
- Nice setting; food just okayRoseVIPDined on 2/7/2014Basement setting is very romantic but the prix fixe dinner felt rushed and pre-prepared. Desserts were spectacular especially an orange soufflé. Waiters very attentive but in a hurry. Reasonable for SF.
- Very disappointedKaf2Dined on 1/31/2014The meal started out great-the bread and soup were outstanding. The salad was ok but the entree tasted like banquet food and we had fillets! There wasn't an escargo on the menu and my daughter and I decided that if the restaurant hadn't been so well decorated, we wouldn't have known we were In a French restaurant. Plain green beans and carrots with no sauce....very disappointing.
- Amazing .... Hidden gem for sure!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 1/29/2014The bartender at Buena vista recommended this hidden gem and I was blown away! Delicious food great wine and perfect service!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OKLeeLDined on 1/18/2014The wine list was quite limited, the service average... they were clearly understaffed. The food was OK, but the vegetables overcooked and nothing special. Rabbit could have been chicken, but was inoffensive. Lamb shank was properly done. Desserts were nothing special. The restaurant is more about fake ambiance than it is about being a true culinary experience.
- Outstanding evening!blindradDined on 1/15/2014Excellent food, quiet, charming ambiance. Great choice for downtown dining. Charming owner on site. Will definitely return!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Amazing family style French food!!!LizToddVIPDined on 12/24/2013This really is a hidden gem and I'm not sure I want to share but I will. :) The owner, Claude, has been here for 47 years and is all about quality, taste, and not overcharging for what he loves. My husband and I don't often get into the city at night, but when we do this is THE place. The Grand Marnier Souffle' is the best I've had in my life - and I have a few years on the life meter. The custard is not over the top and the texture of the entire dessert is superb. This is the only family style French restaurant I'm aware of in SF. It also doesn't charge you an arm and a leg for their excellent quality and that also goes for the wine list. Soup, salad, choice of main (try the lamb shank) and choice of dessert - for around $42 w/o drinks.Special Features:

- San Francisco FindgolfergirlVIPDined on 11/16/2013Took a chance on this small French restaurant after reading other reviews. It is in the basement of a small hotel and the decor is very interesting! Lots of French tapestries and painted murals on the walls. The menu is a Pre-Fixe and was wonderful. We had 4 courses for $42.00! The food was very good. There were numerous selections for each course except the soup. We would go back next time we are in San Francisco.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- French "cave" experience in SFOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 11/16/2013The ambiance of Jeanne d'Arc restaurant near Union Square in San Francisco is like being in a wine "cave" or cellar in France. The food is typically French, and the wine list contains some very reasonably priced Frech wines.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
