Great experience, stellar service!
L’Ardoise is one of our favorite places in the city. We love to come here for the cozy French style decor, impeccable service and delicious food. The food and wine list is reasonably priced. We’ve never had a bad time or dinner here! Definitely a neighborhood gem that’s always booked up.
We discovered L'Ardoise in Oct 2009 and loved everything about it from the beginning. Authentic experience and consistently excellent food. Most of the staff have been there from the beginning. We feel like we're at home whenever we dine here.
Great coq au vin, great Brussels sprouts salad and tasty charcuterie. The bread was delicious and abundant The atmosphere is old fashioned French with a SF edge in a lovely Noe Street location. A neighborhood gem we Jeep coming back to!
The service was fantastic the food was fantastic, the experience was fantastic! As it always has been!!
Superb! Delicious food & impeccable service.
Very intimate French bistro. Food quality is absolutely amazing, service was good. It’s everything you imagine in a neighborhood French bistro, with world class quality food.
Five star food, two star service.
Came here for Valentines Day and enjoyed a delicious 4-course meal after hearing great things. We were greeted warmly upon arrival. Unfortunately our server disappeared after our main courses and some ground pepper were brought to the table. In stark contrast to the neighboring tables, our wine glasses sat empty after the first glass, and were taken away without offering another for the rest of our time there. They also delivered the check without asking/checking to see if we wanted an after dinner drink or tea/coffee. We essentially ordered our food, and that was the end of any sort of personal interaction with wait staff. Very delicious food, but the service was nearly absent with the exception of prompt food running and water refills. The Valentine’s Day rose they gave us as we left was a nice gesture though!
Food was great, very delicious. Would definitely recommend it.
We just loved our dinner at L'Ardoise. I had the Brussels sprout salad and the coq au vin and it was all just wonderful. My friend loved his dinner too. We loved the cozy atmosphere too, and the nice waiters. Great experience!
A great place for a date. Excellent food and a romantic setting. The coq au vin is ridiculously tasty.
Makes me miss Paris
An unapologetically classic French restaurant, full of flavor, full of butter, rich and delicious. More like a French country restaurant in France, all the delicious food without the pretense and unctuousness that often accompanies really good French food in the US. A modest wine list, modestly priced, with plenty of good choices. We came a long way for this (80 miles) and it was absolutely worth it! We'll be back!
Charcuterie selection was excellent. Brussels sprouts were prepared perfectly and were refreshing palate cleanser. We both had steak (one the special and the other off the menu), which was perfectly seasoned, and cooked to the perfect temperature. The one area to improve on are the desserts. The Ile flottante and the Valrhona cake were OK. Wince list continues to be well-rounded with some great values. Last but most important, our server was attentive, pleasant and did NOT rush us as is so customary. Thank you for a memorable dinner!
