I came here for my anniversary and they were kind enough to switch our indoor table to an outdoor table! I had the duck with fois gras butter and it was AMAZING!! Our server was very friendly and playful. Would definitely come here again :)
Better than expected.
Honestly, their take on fried chicken is something I never would've expected. Incredible!
great food in a great environment. I definitely recommend!
Best meal I have had in San Francisco. Carpaccio, oysters, Swordfish, and the pasta was insane.
Delicious brunch with attentive waiter. Will come back here again.
FC has been one of my goto restaurants in the city for many years. They just get so many elements of what a restaurant needs to be right. From venue, ambiance, cocktails to food. They do it all with grace.
Best advice I can give? Get all the things. Just do it. Bring some friends and literally order all the things. You can't go wrong.
And if you're really feeling it the extensive wine list is a treat for even those seasoned drinkers.
Food was delicious! The hostess and waitress was very nice and professional. Definitely would recommend this restaurant to my friends.
It never disappoints. I was lucky to have an option to get a rezy for last minute and I jumped at the chance.
Highly recommend. Everything we ordered we really enjoyed! I recommend taking advantage of truffle service, we added it to the orecchiette pasta. Ambiance is beautiful, inside and outside.
The food and Ambience are really good. Food portions are too small.
I guess at the end after we paid our check they were just trying to get us out while we were still chatting wanted to stay for a bit.
Every dish was incredibly delicious! We loved the hostess’ welcome & our waiter Melissa. Value for the food was also good. Sat in the courtyard & were warm enough from the heaters. The whole experience was so great we’ll put it on our agenda every trip to the he city! Caviar on Papadams - I’m sold! Fried chicken curry - holy cow-amazing! Melt in your mouth pork chop.. goat cheese -cheese cake…a dish I’ve been chasing down from another restaurant & here it is! Yay!!!
My husband’s meal was fabulous! But I had to send mine back as it was Luke warm barely! And mine was duck that was absolutely swimming in liquid both times
It was our anniversary and we were given a nice card, but having a nice meal together would have been a better recognition!
Customer service was lovely. Celebrating our anniversary here made it extremely special. Friendly staff and even better food!
We found the taste to be just so so. My son had the burger which was way below average.
Excellent in every way. Food was wonderful and all staff was friendly and very helpful.
Love the overall experience. Food was great esp the cheesecake!
The quality of the ingredients is excellent and the end product is even better, foreign cinema is a place that distinguishes itself for the high end innovative cuisine . The staff is very professional and knowledgeable. Overall it is a great experience to eat at foreign cinema
Great meal, great service.
Just gets better year by year.
Just celebrated our 22nd anniversary and wanted someplace where both the food and the atmosphere were special. Foreign Cinema was the perfect choice. The food was interesting and unique (although the menu offers fewer choices than most restaurants we frequent) and the service was perfect. The building and atmosphere are what really makes this place stand out. Definitely book a table outside if you can. It's not really outside, it's an enclosed courtyard between two buildings. A great place to take friends or for a special occasion.
We love coming here, the ambiance is perfect and the food is always great.
The food, service and atmosphere here are exceptional. I have been here multiple times and have never been disappointed. Service is extremely professional. This is my go to place for weekend brunch/lunch with out of town guests.
I've gone to Foreign Cinema for corporate events, weddings, family gatherings, and romantic dinners. The food is always outstanding and the ambience is lovely any time of year. It's my Chez Panisse of the Mission.
Average experience, nothing really stood up. The place is beautiful tho, but other than that, it was really below the average. Service was slow and the food was really pricey.
Just the best brunch place in San Francisco, hands down. Fantastic food, friendly service, beautiful environment!
Aggressive service, very pressing and rough, with no manners.
We got the check before we even started the dessert.
We came here for nice evening to enjoy a quality food but we're really disappointed by the whole experience. The food was not exceptional, even below good.
Wow!! Wonderful food and service!! Will definitely be back when visiting San Francisco
Such a wonderful experience. The ambience, the food, the drinks. Superb service. So nice to be back to dining in restaurants. This is special with the big outdoor garden. The movie was "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid". As I looked around, I thought that most of the patrons had probably not even heard of this classic movie.
The oysters were out of this world. The carpaccio was delicious and the duck was moist, juicy, and a real treat.
The food was fantastic and I informed them that it was my partner’s birthday and they made her feel extra special which was a great experience.
Awesome drinks, fun experience, but not very tasty food, only a few dishes were exceptional, most were mediocre or not tasty. Dessert was fantastic
More choices in the menu ,please. Too much noise :(
The sesame fried chicken is amazing and the cocktails are good too. The appetizers and the tuna main course were so so and overpriced. We enjoyed the apple tart for dessert but I would come back again for the sesame fried chicken.
Foreign Cinema was an incredible and amazing venue with outstanding and friendly staff and delicious food. Thank you Dash for making my 60th birthday celebration most memorable!
It was a fun evening! The food was delicious and the atmosphere, fun and sophisticated.
We wished you would use subtitles on the movie.
Thanks for a great evening and a special thanks to John for securing us a
Future reservation when a friend is in from New York!
A FANTASTIC restaurant for any occasion!!!!! The food is always delicious and the service always attentive
My parents came in town for a few days, so I decided to take them to Foreign Cinema and I was so happy I did! Because it was a Tuesday evening, we got lucky with grabbing a reservation for inside on the day of and had a wonderful evening with delicious food. They were a bit busy, but the staff was very kind and helpful…cannot wait for my next special evening at Foreign Cinema.
If you want to watch a movie make sure you go when it’s dark
Very friendly staff. Food was so good , even the Mayo was homemade.
You'll never go wrong with Foreign Cinema. Great vibes & Good Food.
