This was our first visit and, therefore, we did not know the exact location until arriving. Much to our surprise we found there was major construction being done in front of and surrounding the restaurant, even on a weekend evening. Parking difficult and walking also difficult. Learned this will be a long process as it is the underground work for public transportation into and out of dowtown SF from the train station, as well as the proposed Transbay Terminal.
The meal was not quite up to snuff as my previous reviews. The chicken was a tad dry this time, but beef carpaccio salad and tarte tatin were delicious. Our guest ate her salad inordinately slow that probably screwed up the kitchen timing. I was quite uncomfortable as well as I could see the staff continually checking, but not in an obstrusive way. The Vacqueras that was recommended by the waiter was excellent.
What a great restaurant! We had a wonderful Friday night dinner at Fringale. For starters we tried the foie gras, the prawns in pastis/tomato sauce and the crab napoleon. All were excellent. For entrees, we had the roast chicken and the rack of lamb. The lamb was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. Great French fries too. For dessert we shared the hazelnut mousse cake, and we loved it. We can't wait to go back.
Friendly service, delicious French food, good value.
Great Restaurant with Excellent food. We will differently be back!
Thank you, Bob S. from Reno
Fringale has been a favorite spot of ours for two years - since shortly after we moved to San Francisco. It is a great combination of dishes from le Midi down to pays Basque, all with both a Parisian and San Franciscan metropolitan flair that manages to keep true to the origins. From their delightful and seasonal cassoulet, to the foie gras d'oie, coq au vin, and one of our most favorites the crevettes au pastis, I have yet met a dish here I do not like. In addition, Fringale has curated to perfection a selection of wines, both local and French, to pair perfectly their diverse clientele's tastes with each dish on the menu.
If you haven't, eat here.
I enjoyed a very nice lunch at Fringale. I had the calamari appetizer and roast chicken entree. I would have preferred some sort of potatoes with the chicken however was still very good! My empty glass also sat on my table for most of my lunch even though the waitress and bartender passed by me several times.
No question about it, Fringale is a wonderful French bistro. Their menu and service have, over the years, consistently been outstanding. Go there for lunch or dinner.
Food was quite good. Server was pleasant but wasn’t very attentive. For example, brought coffee but didn’t bring cream, never filled water glasses even though the restaurant was almost empty when we ordered coffee.
We had a wonderful time at Fringale. The food is classic French, well executed and unpretentious. The service is outstanding, very attentive, friendly and accommodating. The noise level is fine, even though the restaurant was full it was easy to enjoy our conversation - which is not the case in so many other places these days. And they make a great martini. Overall, a wonderful experience that we will want to repeat!
