Booked a table for a business lunch and my CFO told me later that the entire group couldn't say enough good things about their experience.
Annual pilgrimage to Fringale's cassoulet special... and it was yummy as always! My frisée salad (w/poached egg) was dressed perfectly, crunchy fresh greens, and the egg perfect!
A wonderful dinner!
The service is excellent;I enjoyed hearing our wait person’s French accent. The butter lettuce entree and the crepe brûlée were outstanding. But for the life of me I can’t remember much about the chicken dish I had. My friend’s duck with “fries” were excellent though. Tight dining room but the table still felt private enough. I recommend
Fringale is consistent. Always impeccable service, great wine selection and tasty, rustic cooking. Front of house is efficient, quick with drinks while waiting for your table. I know some folks always look for the next big thing, or food fad, if you are one of those, you will be disappointed. But if you want well prepared and tasty classic brassiere dishes served with attentive, but not hovering service, Fringale never disappoints.
everything was more than adequate, but the table was not in a very pleasant location and the service seemed a bit rushed. Less leisurely than my former experiences here.
Food was very good
Always excellent food and service. Small and very conducive to conversation. Excellent deserts. Well worth the effort since it is a little out of the way although convenient to Oracle Park and the CalTrans station.
Fringale is our favorite special occasion choice. This time we had guests from Chicago. The friendly and efficient service was great and the food was wonderful. Fringale is not a quiet candle-lit venue, but one of
guests enjoying great food and each others company.
Service a bit rushed
Excellent long time restaurant. Love going there. The ambiance, food and service and always suburb!
They are simply great people with great food
We adore Fringale. If you are looking for a wonderful and authentic french experience without pretension and the financial premium, I believe you may love Fringale as does our family. We live in Orinda, and this is by far our favorite restaurant in the city. Cannot Miss. the ravioli and French 75s are the absolute best! The tarte ta in shall transport you. Our absolute fave
I always enjoy date night at Fringale for the excellent food, wine and atmosphere. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a intimate dinner with excellent service.
Could not have been happier... Food was great as I remembered from past visits, however, to our happy surprise, Sam, our server whom we knew from another restaurant, was working here now. Sam made our evening the more special.
Great food. Great service. We go to frigales quite often and it is always an enjoyable evening. Brought out of town guests this time they enjoyed even more than we did.
I have been making it a point to eat at Fringale whenever I am in San Francisco for many years and they never disappoint. The food and service are top notch and the wine list always has something interesting to drink. Recommend that Fringale be on your list as well!
One of the best places in San Francisco, as good as being in Paris. A San Francisco treasure.
cozy restaurant for a dinner date. pay attention to our table but not too pushy.
Lovely birthday lunch for my dear friend. Perfect. Loved the candle with her dessert. Thanks!
Fringale is a really beautifully authentic French restaurant, not just because of the food (which is amazing and simple), but mostly because of the atmosphere. They're friendly, but not in-your-face about the pace of your meal. And for the quality of the food you get, the prices are amazing. I couldn't recommend this place more.
We were the last seating and had to order right away, everything was excellent except for the duck which was insanely dry. Tasted like it was made when we arrived and sat under a heat lamp until we were ready to be served our main course. The lamb Chop was amazing and would go back specifically for it. Spinach ravioli was great and bread was perfect to soak up the sauce. Great wait staff, warm and attentive. Flourless chocolate cake w/ fruit compote was amazing.
Fringale is always a very good restaurant with excellent food, service, and value for what you pay. I would recommend Fringale for any type of occasion.
Small place with comfortable and attractive atmosphere, and we always get excellent food and service here. One of our local Mission Bay area favorites.
It was very hot but the food was very good
Excellent food and attentive service. Highly recommend.
Great food and excellent service. The atmosphere is relaxing and good for conversation.
Very attentive service, nice ambiance and delicious food!
We’ll definitely go back!
My husb n I love this place. The servers are very friendly and we are always warmly received the minute we set in the restaurant. It's not a very large dining room but its cozy. Food is not contrived or fancy but reliably good n beautifully presented. Attentive service.
As good as the service was, and as welcoming as the space is, the food did not sparkle as it usually does. calamari was too small and too many little rings rather than tasty legs; frisee lacked flavor (lemon? mustard?) and the ribeye too fatty. Same cook?
We had three entres - fish stew, duck, and sole. All were prepared well, though the duck was a bit dry. The fish stew might have benefited from a stronger spice but was tasty nonetheless. The sole was prepared nicely with a nice sauce. Side dishes of spinach (with light blue cheese) and potatoes au gratin (with light cheese) were perfect. The corn soup starter was perhaps the best we have tasted in 40 years of dining out. The starter raviolis were delicious, full of mushroom with a substantial classic sauce. The apple tarts and flourless cake deserts were OK but nothing special. We brought our own champagne and red Bordeaux; corkage $25. Service was very timely and engaging. The meal was served without excessive waiting between courses, though enough to let the previous course have its moment. Total price with 20% tip was $321. We think this was just a tad on the high side, and probably would be less if an Oakland or other less pricey habitat. But San Francisco is the expensive venue it is, so C'est la Vie.
Congenial staff, capable and attentive. Decently priced wine. Impressive menu variety; excellent bistro cooking.
Wonderful dinner and service. My dinner had authentic lentil from France which raised the quality of the dish. Jazz was great as well!
Certainly the best restaurant in SOMA/Mission Bay and one of the best in San Francisco. Sauteed prawns is the best anywhere-just make sure you have enough bread to finish the sauce.
Fantabulous, as always. We have our usual order, but always find a delightful surprise among the special menus selections. Service is outstanding.
Been coming to this restaurant the past twenty eight years and have had a great meal each time.
Fringale never lets us down. We get beautiful, delicious food. The servers are attentive and helpful. I really love this restaurant.
Always consistently delicious
I return here often over the years. Never disappointed. Real French ambiance here, not the fake type, from food to servers.
Just come here!
Have not been to Fringale for quite awhile and we were happy to find it just as charming as ever. Excellent service and wonderful food. We highly recommend it and plan to not wait so long again before we return.
