Consistent amazing food and service every time . Never disappointed. By far my favorite restaurant in San Francisco.
I always love a trip to this cozy little place when I’m craving a taste of Paris. The team makes us feel so welcome more like we are visiting good friends than just going to a restaurant. They nail the classics and the specials are something to look forward to as well.
Amazing as always. Never disappoints.
L'Ardoise is one of our favorite restaurants and we have been going there for years. The food is wonderful and the service is excellent. We highly recommend it.
L'ardoise is always a treat but I did have one surprising thing happen yesterday. I had asked for the lamb chops to be medium, not the recommended medium rare. I said 'medium' and that I like pink, but not red. They came done past medium-well, they were 'well done', that is there was no pink left at all. This place is so reliable and tasty--it was only one error in many, many splendid meals there.
When there don't miss the charcuterie board or the potatoes L'Ardoise or the duck confit, or the tart tatin--well, there isn't a single thing on the menu that isn't a hit!
L'Ardoise is always a "must" to visit when I'm in San Francisco for the very
best duck confit and other amazing French influenced menu items like
my "stagier pawn raviolis" ...amazing. The service is always friendly,
professional, and recommend the very best in wines and desserts !
Merci beaucoup !

Phenomenal food within a cozy neighborhood French-style bistro. The atmosphere and attentive service were reminiscent of some of my favorite evenings in Paris.
Great French bistro.
The restaurant has been consistent over the years. Great selection of menu items and, to our tastes, the best value wine list in the city.
Food was Excellent, Service was Outstanding, tables are only about 6 inches apart so a little TOO tight for me.
There are many wonderful restaurants in San Francisco but L’Ardoise is a standout. Cozy ambience, excellent service, and amazing food and wine that I felt was priced reasonably. Be sure to make your reservations well in advance as others have discovered this gem and it was packed on a Wednesday night when we dined there.
Nice neighborhood spot with a classic French bistro menu
Neither remarkable in a good or bad way
Best restaurant in the Castro / Duboce Triangle! I've been eating here for years.
The food is good, the beef excellent but I felt too close from the tables and people next to my table so I could hear all their conversations and I did not know where to look because I did not want to seem like I am looking at them. So maybe the place is too small for so many tables.
Best duck confit ever. Neighborhood gem. Great wine list.
Romantic Valentine’s Day place to bring your significant other. Authentic French cuisine and everyone is so friendly
We go to here for all birthdays, anniversary and special nights
Our anniversary was a very special occasion and L’Ardoise did not let us down. The meals were excellent as was the service. The Restaurant is a little tight which caused some people to move tables but we got there early so it was not a problem for us. Overall this is a little neighborhood gem.
It had been awhile since we ate here and will definitely be back again soon! the food was delicious. the duck confit was perfectly cooked although could have used some salt. All potatoes were great. The special trio of asparagus was very good with ana excellent home made mayo. W e also were delighted with the cheese course and wine selections.
Neighborhood restaurant that never fails to provide well-prepared bistro standards and excellent service. The head waiter, cooks, chef and everyone you come in contact with here is simply committed to excellent service.
We go for special occasions. This time for our 44th anniversary.
I wish there were more restaurants like L’Ardoise. Consistently excellent food. My coco vin was one of the best I ever had. Trio of asparagus appetizer— delicious. And the service is always perfect—-hardly notice that everything is taken care of without ever having to ask. A true “dining experience” without the foam, the tweezer food, and ridiculous fanfare.
Always a fantastic experience and delicious food!!!
Great neighborhood spot. Everyone was so friendly, as dinner tables can be close together.
The asparagus starter (a mix of spears, shavings, and a mousse) was innovative and tasty. The hanger steak was reasonably tender with a classic red wine sauce. Overall, very good food if somewhat over salted. Service was brisk but efficient. A nice, comfortable spot to try every now and then.
Everything was wonderful and the service perfect. We were celebrating an anniversary. From appetizer to main to desserts were incredible. Thank you
Good food great service
My third time at L'Ardoise; a great neighborhood gem. The server was very friendly and accommodating. Food was very good. I have some food allergies that they had to work with; which they did happily.
I will absolutely go back.
We love L'Ardoise, it is the perfect neighborhood gem as well as a very romantic space. The food and the staff are always great.
Always the perfect meal, venue and experience.
We have dined here many times just as a duo (mostly) and also with friends. The experience is consistently superb ...excellent brussels sprouts salad, excellent hangar steak, FABULOUS floating island !!!
Visiting family from out of town
One of our many staple restaurants that we visit often when we’re in town! Love the ambiance and food!
Everything about the Food and Service was great, but our first table we were seated at was "FREEZING" despite the curtains being pulled from a windy and cold night....so we asked to be moved. I'd still go back...dinner and service was Amazing! thank you.
Outstanding 'neighborhood' French dining experience. Friendly clientele, excellent service, easy parking on Noe. Try it, you'll be happy you did.
Lovely experience, great service.
Great find. Wonderful food and staff. Our waiter Alexandre was really cool. We even got to know the people at the tables next to us. Fantastic vibe.
Really enjoyed the risotto and the tri-tip special. And the creme brule was to die for...
