Curbside Cafe is an eclectic Californian restaurant with a French twist. We are known for our delicious brunches, but our wonderful regular customers will tell you that the dinners are scrumptious as well. This is a place where the decor is artistic, the ambiance is cozy. You are welcome to come with a group for brunch, dress up and bring a date for dinner, or come alone and enjoy a glass of wine with your meal.

I love this place! The food is delicious, the French waiter a doll and it’s great value for the money.

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.

Best burger in SF. Chicken picatta is a delight. Smoked chicken salad is delish.

This is one of our favorite places. We dropped in for lunch and sat out side because there was a table full of young screaming kids inside. It was a bit cold and the waiter was rushed - all by himself. But the food was good and was so happy to see that they have survived.
We will go back when it's warmer - try the seafood pasta. It's fabulous!

Curbside is always delightful. The only thing wrong with the ambience was the rain and not even Olivier can change that! He helped immensely by bringing the heater to our table. I have returned here many times and will do so again.

The curb side is definitely my go to place to eat in the filmore area!!! The owner always remembers who we are even though it was our first trip into the city since Covid. !!! The food is top quality... filet Mignon melted in our mouths. He brought out the brownie and local awesome ice cream with a candle since it was my husband’s birthday. How sweet was that🥰....make a reservation and enjoy. Omg I almost forgot to say ... the value was there too. Be a regular and support small business, the curbside will leave you with a smile and quite satisfied. Yummy!!!!

Love Curbside! It’s neighborhood gem. Great food and wine list. Oliver, the owner is a wonderful person who wants to make your dining experience great. My favorite dinner items are the Chicken Piccata and Mediterranean Chicken Penne but he always has specials that are enticing too.

Staff was a little rude/inconsiderate and they seemed unprepared for our reservation and we had to wait for a long time. Also the tables did not seem to be 6 feet apart. In the end though the food and value was good.

Amazing French Toast and a perfect hollandaise for the Benedict. The potatoes were crispy little morsels, seasoned exactly to my taste. The owner Olivier loves to take care of his customers.

This is one of my favorite spots on Fillmore St. Olivier really cares about the dining experience, and it is reflected in everything he does: the ambience, the food, the service. I recommend this spot to anyone who wants a memorable experience and a good value for their money.

Charming little restaurant run bay French owner. It was lovely sitting in the outside street area eating breakfast. A wide ranging breakfast menu with great choices. The French toast and Eggs Benedict choices were delicious.great service and a enjoyable early Sunday breakfast with my two adult daughters. A wonderful choice for my last day visiting San Francisco.

The Curbside Cafe is one of my wife and my favorite places to eat before Covid19, and it still is. Olivier is a charming host, and the food is fantastic. The Grilled Aged New York Steak & Frites, medium rare, and the Chicken Picatta Over Pasta are our favorites. The deserts are to die for. Ask Olivier for his recommended wine.

The service was amazing. To be honest, the food tasted like it was purchased from the corner store down the street, and reheated in the microwave... that is putting it as nicely as I can. Our server was amazing though.
