We have always loved Baker's Street Bistro but our last visit there on Friday night was superb. They really outdid themselves on every item. I had the fish stew and it was really incredible. I couldn't finish it all, either. One friend's cassoulet was superb, another friend had the salmon, also superb, my husband had the duck which was also superb. The wine list is very good and also very reasonable. We started with a bottle of champagne and then had a bottle of pinot with our meals. And the profiterol and pear tart for dessert was excellent. Excellent quality and a real French bistro. Can't wait to go back.
Delicious meal. This bistro is a gem. Food and service were top notch. We began with onion soup which was perfect for a rainy evening. My main course was the chicken. Since im gluten free, they made me a special sauce of wine reduction and orange. It was served with creamy, light whipped mashed potatoes and sauteed onions and spinach. Can't wait to eat there again.
We come to Baker Street Bistro every year, after going to Bouquets to Art at the De Young.
It never fails to please, and is a perfect way to end a lovely day. We began by sharing the onion soup, which was, literally, over the top, with loads of cheese. It's the greatest! Don't miss it for starters. Then. my wife had the lamb chops, done to perfection. I had the confit de canard, which I requested crispy, and that's how it arrived, also done to perfection. Superb experience. We'll be back, for certain, and maybe even before next year's Bouquets exhibition. Worth a drive from the East Bay.
Always satisfying and a good value. Has a comfortable feel.
Excellent service and great food. My wife had Duck and I had Mussels. Highly recommend Baker Street!!
Lovely, small, quiet intimate place for lunch or dinner. Excellent french-themed food.
Good French bistro food, good atmosphere, good service. Personifies the term neighborhood gem.
The hostess is the best in town
Have eaten here twice, everything was quite good. Really loved their tomato soup. Their $25 early bird 4 course meal is an excellent value.
Chantal and team made the experience so much fun. We’ll be going back again soon.
For my Wife's special birthday Baker Street Bistro was the best choice. Once we entered the bistro the waitress knew that we asked for a window table and it's was my wife's birthday. The bistro looks like a restaurant straight from Paris where we had visited several times. The salads, entrees: my three lamb chops were cooked just right medium rase and my wife's duck were excellent. The salads were very large and can be shared. We had to take home one of the lamb chops, potatoes and my wife's spinach since we were so full. The bistro placed a candle on my wife's dessert for her birthday. The service was excellent - they checked on us throughout the meal and we were not rushed. There are only 10 tables but we did not feel too close to other customers and noise level was acceptable. We had traveled from the East Bay but we plan to return when we want French Food. The prices are very reasonable.
OMG! What a find. Great salads and french onion soup, fantastic entrees and a great dessert to finish things off. Very close seating, but comfy. Can't wait to go back.
Terrific French onion soup. Service attentive. And you can talk to each other.
Always great food, service, ambience at Baker Street Bistro. Have been going for years and will continue to go again!
I would only return for the mussels; they were delicious! The onion soup had a lot of cheese but was lacking in flavor. Unfortunately we ended the meal with lousy coffee instead of strong French coffee.
Always lovely. A great neighborhood spot for all occasions.
One of our favorites ...authentic French food and atmosphere.
Very authentic. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly and attentive.
Good food. Good ambience. Quiet enough to talk!
Nice neighborhood place, good food, friendly and efficient service. The mussels were very good, as was the lamb stew and the steak. Portion size is generous.
Cozy restaurant with very excellent, authentic French bistro food
Wonderful, friendly people, who provided ok service. Didn't seem to have enough personnel on hand to make it good. Huge portions on the food, but it was only ok. My Croque Madame arrived with its fried egg with the white still uncooked. Servers was nice about my comment, took it back to the kitchen, and it came back to me still with uncooked, slimy white. She took it back and this time it arrived back cooked, so much so that the yolk was smashed and cooked to death. As for the rest of the sandwich, it was smothered in goopy sauce. I don't recommend this dish! There were other things on the menu that looked appealing, should have tried on of them instead. The place is charming, so the ambiance is very nice -- but the food, at least based on my experience, don't expect anything really good here. (My companion had a salad, and she didn't seem very enthused about it as well.)
Always great when you feel like a little trip to Paris.
Loved this restaurant. Service wonderful. The mussels were awesome!
Food and service always excellent!
Wonderful experience. Comfortable, warm atmosphere and delicious food. Service was exceptional and personal.
There is my favorite restaurant!!
Really good, classic bistro food such as you find in neighborhood restaurants in Paris. Small, friendly, personal. I gave 5 stars not because it's high-end gourmet food, but because it does an excellent job at being what it claims to be--authentic, traditional French food. You can get your onion soup, snails, mussels, steak frites, boeuf bourgignon, duck à l'orange, etc.; have crème brulée, chocolate mousse, profiteroles, tarte tatin, isle flotant for dessert, maybe with an espresso chaser, and go away happy. Salads are tasty and generous and not just plain green; e.g., they do one with warm goat cheese and a really interesting one called "southwest," and they don't mean New Mexico; it comes with smoked duck breast and paté. The bar is not extensive (no campari the night we were there) but the wine list is solid.
A real neighborhood gem with a great $25 3-course prix fixe. Love their french fries and the strawberry balsamic dessert. Will be back for sure!
We had a really nice lunch here. Service was good without being intrusive. Very good burger, frites and salad.
I have been bringing friends over the years to introduce them to this restaurant. The service is impeccable, the food is always excellent, and consistently prepared with great care. The prices for a French restaurant are more than reasonable and there are 3 or 4 specials on top of the regular menu.
I enjoyed sharing the dishes from my country of origin. It is the only place I know that serves Ile flottante as a dessert, a dish my grand mother was making me when I was a child.
A nice quiet, delicious meal away from the bustle. He meal was memorable and outstanding.
We returned from Paris earlier this week; still tired from our trip, decided not to cook and popped over to Baker Street Bistro (BSB) for San Francisco’s version of the food we’d been eating for the past couple of weeks. The food at BSB was fantastic, service prompt, atmosphere relaxed and the cost very reasonable. If the wine were a bit cheaper I’d say the most restaurants in Paris had nothing on BSB.
Consistent. Friendly. All that is should be for what it is.
Went there before the Symphony. Our reservation was for when they opened at 5:30, so we were the first customers. Nice menu, delicious duck, attentive service. I was expecting difficult parking, but we were able to park two blocks away on the street. I’d go again in a heartbeat.
We have eaten at Backer Street Bistro two times and were impressed by the menu selection ambience, and service. It reminded us of an authentic French bistro. Neighborhood location. No problem parking on Friday night. Reservations were at a peak time and made four hours earlier.
Baker St Bistro is as close to a true Parisian cafe as we have here in SF. The food is legit and reliable
Wonderful food and service, as always. I took my mom who was visiting from out of town, and she raved about the food the rest of her stay. Will definitely be back soon!
Lovely French Bistro. OutstNding service and, oooh, those mussels and
What a disappointment. I have been going there for years and this time everything was not up to par. Something was wrong. The chicken salads were most disappointing. I felt the chicken was frozen and prepared the day before. I will give them one more chance.
