Go againI loved it, yet every thing had salad. I had a thought for a moment that my dessert would come with salad5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI really love this placeThis was our first visit and certanly not our last. We were greeted by the waitstaff that was happy to see us. The staff treats you really well. You can tell they love what they do.
The food was really good. Our entrees came out a little faster than I anticipated. We were enjoying drinks to begin with. We skipped the appetizers. I would reccomend this place to any food lover that loves a great ambience while dining.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Mimosa "Bourgogne" wasThe Mimosa "Bourgogne" was outstanding - champagne with white peach sorbet and black currant! The fettucine with prawns was also excellent with bits of fresh asparagus. Overall, it was an excellent experience and we will definitely come again and also tell all of our friends.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance and good foodThis is a great little french restaurant. The food was good, but maybe a little expensive for what you get. Expect to spend $50+ on a dinner for two without drinks.
What makes it great though is the ambiance and staff. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a romantic dinner for two.
I haven't tried their brunch yet, and I hear that that is where Zazie really shines.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMCozy busy place with good foodIt was the Monday doggy night and many dogs showed up. They only dine in the backyard. Small french bistro style tables.
Food was flavourful but a little off for the entree. Onion soup and chicken liver pate served on toasts were delicious. Duck leg was not crispy (may be the sauce was poured directly on it) and pork chop had some dry spots (~20%). Both entrees were a bit oily for me but it could be just the style.
Wine list was OK and many wine offered in carafe (about 400-500ml) and prices were in reasonable city range. Will go back and recommend to friends.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant, great serviceWe have been to Zazie twice in the last month. Both times, for different reasons, we were eating lightly and asked to share an appetizer and a main course. Absolutely no problem, they made it easy. Delicious food and well-chosen wine list. Wonderful mussels and the lamb tagine was fabulous.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful neighborhood restaurantFor the past 4 years we havebeen coming from Portland to visit our son in college at USF and always plan to eat at Zazie's. the food is great, we love the ambiance and enthusiasm of the servers.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighbourhood bistro!We were recommended Zazie by a long-time SF resident and were pleased with our experience. The food was great, if a little rich--but too be expected when you order duck!
My wife and I shred the appetizer platter, which came with a very good chicken pate/mousse on toast points--classic French and a tad too moore'ish!
I had the crispy duck leg with warm fingerling potato salad and my wife had the fish soup. Both were excellent, but again quite rich. The duck's potato salad had bacon, which added to the flavour and the richness, but excellent regardless. Beware--portions are NOT fussy French 'nouvelle cuisine'--you will leave satisfied.
Prices are reasonable for the quality.
Service was very good--attentive, but not obtrusive. Good job!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciious food, nice atmosphereThis place is such a madhouse at brunch... try it for dinner. It feels cozy, the food and wine are good.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful evening!Zazie was a really great place for my wife and I to go on a date. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and we immediately felt welcome and well taken care of. We sat on the patio, which was charmingly lit up, with flowers covering the fences. What really stood out, however, was the food. The charcuterie was great, especially the pate. We had the steelhead and the chicken. Both excellent. The meals were balanced and flavorful, and though they were healthy and not especially heavy, we were very well fed. Our only regret was not having the chance to try some of their deserts (which sounded great!).5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!Had possibly the best pasta ever at Zazie the other night. Creme Brûlée was equally incredible. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere was welcoming. My mother and I were staying nearby for a holiday and were very pleased that our host recommended the restaurant!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMReliably good food in a niceReliably good food in a nice neighbourhood setting with good service. Menu is somewhat static.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite restaurantsZazie is my favorite place in the neighborhood. The food is good, the service is good, it's a tiny, very cozy place, not too noisy. This week the French onion soup was very rich and good, the cheese extremely thick. I got the grilled mascarpone polenta and spinach with mushrooms in tomato sauce, really delicious. The iced tea was delicately flavored and so good. This restaurant pays attention to the little details. We usually go for their out of the box breakfast/brunches, and this week's dinner was really a treat, as well.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is always wonderful andIt is always wonderful and has been for more than 20 years! Thank you so much.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI always have a good timeI always have a good time at Zazie. Their thoughtful menu has dishes for vegetarians as well as carnivores.

I moved out of CA years ago, but still come back when I visit. I grew up in this hood + have had dozens of meals here: lunch with my mother, awful dates, epic brunches, and just recently a romantic birthday dinner with the love of my life. We mentioned it was my birthday and dessert was complimentary. The 3 course prix fix meal for $25 is the best deal in town. Mondays you can dine with your pooch on the patio. Tuesdays they wave corkage fees. I am disappointed that this does not include Tuesday lunch, but well, nothing is perfect! Very nice wine selection. I imagine I will have several meals here this month as I am renting a house nearby and this is on my route as I walk down memory lane4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love our Monday nightsWe love our Monday nights on the back patio with our cute Westie, food is delicious and fresh French and the staff could not be more friendly and accommodating.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMbrought out of town guestsbrought out of town guests here and they loved it. scene on the back patio is wonderful. food was great. great french flavors.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI felt that I was very welcomeI felt that I was very welcome and enjoyed the food and atmosphere.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFish soup did not have enoughFish soup did not have enough to be an entree.

Attentive Service.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy returning customerThis visit to Zazie was great. My friend and I received good service. I love the outdoor area. So beautiful and romantic. The menu has remained the same over the years, but I've had a chance to try most of the dishes and they are consistently good and of high quality. And I love how quiet the restaurant is comparing to all the other popular spots in the city.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous New Year's EveMy boyfriend and I spent our first NY eve together dining at this great restaurant.12/31/2012 12:00:00 AM
