    It’s a nice little restaurant; owner/server was wonderful. Unfortunately, the food just didn’t cut it. There wasn’t one dish that we like. The fried calamari was fried through so it was very dried. The sauce that came with the filet mignon was too sweet; ruined the steak. My husband had to asked for A1 sauce for his New York steak. The chicken mushroom risotto…chicken was so dried that it cut your throat, there’s nothing risotto about the rice, the jasmine rice I cook at home is softer than what was served. The sugar on the cream brûlée was so charred that it was bitter. But one thing that was impressive was the owner. He was the only one mending the entire restaurant in the front with outdoor seatings. If the chef can step it up, then it’s perfect.

    We had reserved for inside and that was not available . We were flexible and able to sit outside. There was only one waiter so the ordering process took 30 minutes . The food was good but we did not enjoy the escargot and the filet had a sweet sauce (we would have preferred savory but that’s just a taste preference).

    Onion soup was bland and the Cesar salad was over dressed. I’ve been to curbside several time and the experience was much better. Maybe an off day or a new chef?

    this lovely little bistro was a perfect spot to celebrate our 40th anniversary. the french onion soup and the salad with candied walnuts and feta very nice. the soup was perhaps the best i have had since i was in toulouse. the main course of filet mignon was executed so well. piped potatoes and some vegs. blueberry cheesecake , we had to share cause we got full. the blanc du blanc a great bargain price for bubbles. very memorable dinner. had a great time. kudos.

    We arrived a little before 11:30 and the owner was just opening up. Apparently they had not had the time to get setup and there was only one person working the front. Between setting up, sweeping the front and taking orders he was one busy man. But the food was great and service was good.

    If you need great eggs benedict or other brunch items on a Friday, this is the place! The regular lunch menu is great, too. The friendly owner manages to keep everyone served in a timely fashion, and yet the ambiance is calm.... Bon Appetit!

    This little place could be adorable but it's messy & unorganized. As soon as you walk into the place they have a make-shift folding table with all their condiments and silverware that make it feel cruddy and ugly. The food is okay and I realize that staffing is a problem at this time due to covid but just cleaning up the front would help a great deal with the ambiance.

    I ordered the Cobb salad. the ingredients were fresh, but unfortunately it was served with too much dressing. Service was pleasant, but not very attentive, perhaps because we were seated outside. They served one of the worst cappuccinos I've ever had -- watery and flavorless.

    A lovely little cafe just off Fillmore. The space is quaint and cozy indoors, and there is a nice outside space (a bit chilly), but with heat lamps. The food is authentically French, simple with fresh ingredients and delicious sauces. The service is like you are dining at a friend’s house in a casual yet, cared for way. Great for an intimate dinner for two, a quick bite with friends or even to dine alone and feel among friends.

    A close friend and I enjoyed an meal outdoors at Curbside during San Francisco Restaurant Week. We enjoyed the meal, and the owner even visited with us. I enjoyed a baby field greens salad with candied walnuts and cheese, a delicious filet and the creme brulee. My friend enjoyed the escargot, chicken picatta and mousse au chocolat. The food was delicious and the entire dining experience was excellent.
