Food was very good. As most restaurants have moved outdoors, it would have been a much better evening if they had figured out how to make better use of heat lamps. Noe can be quite windy and chilly.
Longtime favorite now has socially distanced sidewalk seating where we felt perfectly comfortable and sufficiently distant from the other diners. Food quality remains very high with bistro classics like duck confit and steak frites, and service is very attentive. Highly recommended.
Birthday! They surprised my husband with a candle. :)
Amazing as always! Consistent, quality, excellence.
Delishious food, great service, and sidewalk space was comfortable. Be sure to wear a jacket!
Great food, great wine, and wonderful atmosphere! Loved every second of it!
Wonderful every time!
Excellent meal from start to finish. Outdoor ambiance is delightful, wine list is extensive, and food is top-notch. Highly recommend for any occasion.
Great outdoor seating that resembles that of Europe/Paris.
Good food and nice location. Service was OK, but expected better for the price.
Very relaxing, romantic spot for our 18th anniversary. Food was delicious; particularly enjoyed the Brussels sprout salad and filet and lamb dishes were cooked to perfection. Loved the potatoes. Service was great.
What a delightful discovery to dine here after a last-minute reservation for outdoor dining to celebrate the birthday of my friend. We sat under the trees by this charming bistro and had warm and welcoming service, wonderful food and an ambience that allowed for quiet conversation. We shared the delicate house-made ravioli with bay shrimp and sauce vierge, and I had the generous serving of rack of lamb with its 'smear' of green herb sauce -- and those divine potatoes! I look forward to returning to this very special spot!
L'Ardoise never fails to amaze. Been there many times, always leave happy and full! The only real detractor is just the sign of the times...the outdoor dining.. if it's cold, your food gets cold faster. It's a nice neighborhood, and if the weather is nice, the outdoor seating is great.
Great service and fantastic food!
Beautiful and romantic outdoor setting. The service is impeccable and the food exquisite! It feels like being in a French Bistro in France. Best for meat and desserts lovers!
Best French Restaurant in SF with Beautiful terrace and Perfect Filet Mignon
Amazing outdoor set up, food was spectacular
Great food, friendly service, nice spot for outdoor dining. Our favorite neighborhood restaurant!
The new outdoor space makes you feel like you're in France! Since L'Ardoise is on a quiet street with lots of trees and plants it makes eating outside a very pleasant experience. They are able to space out the tables quite a bit so we felt very safe without too many plastic barriers.
The service and food were really great as always.
L’Ardoise has always been a favorite, but with tables spread far apart under a canopy of trees on the extra-wide garden sidewalk on Noe Street makes it even better with the same great service, wine and food. Very safe outdoor dining.
As wonderful as ever in warmth and professionalism. The added “garden ambience”, especially on a rare warm night, was really memorable!
I’ve been to L’Ardoise many times and it is always consistent. Wonderful staff, great food and a superb wine list! They are serving outdoor dining with heat lamps on beautiful Noe street.
Great service, good food. Didn’t knock my socks off but good and well priced.
Enjoyed sitting near heater. Service as always was superb. Great Hanger Steak and Ravioli.
Nice to enjoy dinner outdoors in L'Ardoise little garden. Would be nice if they string up fairy lights as it's a bit dark and there are no candles on the tables.
The team at this cozy neighborhood have pivoted to outdoor service. It is a unique and romantic experience. They are offering their full menu of rich and classic bistro fare. Support them. Bundled up for the chill breezes outdoors.
Wonderful Staff and food!
My wife and I had dinner here to celebrate our anniversary and had a lovely experience. The outdoor seating was great despite it being a chilly night out. We ordered the tiger prawn ravioli, brussels sprout salad, mushroom risotto and the black angus filet mignon along with a bottle of Napa cabernet. All of the food was outstanding, but the risotto was slightly undercooked. The flavors were still great, however.
We had a great time and would definitely recommend L'Ardoise!
They are great people and a neighborhood restaurant we'd like to continue to support. We had the chicken and the halibut. Both were over cooked and cold when we got them. The flavor was pretty bland as well. Wait staff was excellent and they are making the best of having to set up outside, but the food just wasn't good. Hope it gets better. We will go back again because we don't want another boarded up store front in our neighborhood.
They made our 11 year Anniversary feel special. We appreciated the wine bottle suggestion and the food recommendations. Will definitely be back.
We dined outside here and it was magical. Even with masks and gloves, the servers provided exceptional, comforting service. The wine and food were delicious. And most importantly, it was really special to dine among neighbors supporting this local gem!
It was wonderful to get to go back to a favorite and be well taken care of in difficult times. And the food was outstanding.
awesome. super sweet spot they've created outside. enjoy!
They’ve put together a great COVID-ready outdoor option and the staff is lovely. The food is delicious but there were a couple of items in the salads that weren’t very fresh.
Had a wonderful meal here - sitting outside in quiet street. Wonderful staff and great food. Love this place!!
I love the layout of the outdoor seating (as indoor dining is currently restricted due to the pandemic). I was reminded of the sidewalk cafes while I was in Paris for work.
Though we live in the neighborhood, our last time here had been on New Years' eve. The service is still, gratefully, top notch. The food is still worth the visit (although I was sad that the duck confit was not on the menu that night).
We'll definitely have to plan more frequent visits!
We loved this place. The food is delicious and the ambiance makes you feel as if you were actually in a little street cafe in Paris. We will definitely return soon!
L'Ardoise and the staff are doing a wonderful job at keeping restaurant culture alive. So nice to have a delicious meal served hot.
