Jeanne D'Arc - Cornell Hotel De France Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant was charming and the food was delicious. However every wine I asked for had run out which was disappointing as the wine list was good. I felt a little rushed through the meal...there was no interval between courses and the bill was presented before we had an opportunity to order coffe. However a good find and I will be back
Very charming old-world atmosphere. The menu (while only being fixed price) was varied enough to satisfy almost anyone. Very French in its approach. The amount was good. And all the food was served piping hot. The desert (we had) was the Grand Marnier soufflé was outstanding. Wished I was able to try all the items on the menu.
We went there over the weekend for my anniversary. We tried both confit and lamb shrank along with salad(shrimp/avocado/mango). Soufflé as dessert !! Super FULL after the dinner. 🤗👍🏼
Not worth it to look for street parking. We just parked in parking lot on Bush ($1.5 per hour after 6pm) $4.5 for our visit
Definitely not the best meal I had while in San Francisco. Service was slow and it took about 15 minutes for me to even be acknowledged. My starter of soup was fine as was the heirloom tomato salad. My salmon dish was terrible. It was very over cooked and mushy. I almost returned it. By far the best part of the meal was the Gran Marnier soufflé. That alone was worth the price of the meal. The ambiance of the restaurant was nice but I doubt I would return given so many other good places to dine in the city.
Outstanding French cuisine in an eclectic and funky space in the basement of the Cornell Hotel De France. Equally impressive was the value ($52) for a four course meal that included one of the best souffles I've ever had.
From the soup (Potato Leek) to our appetizers of Shrimp, Avocado and Tomato Stack and the homemade Foie Gras($15 supplement and worth every penny), to our entrees of Pan Seared Halibut and Boeuf Bourguignon, everything was prepared to perfection and was incredible tasting. The wine list, while limited, also offered incredible value. They had a 2014 Trefethen Cabernet that I had at another restaurant in Scottsdale a couple of weeks earlier for $100 a bottle of just $48! And finishing dinner off with one of the best Soufflé au Grand Marnier anywhere (including Paris), was the exclamation point to this perfect meal.
If you like French food and getting it at an outstanding value (especially for San Francisco), then you have to go to Jeanne D'arc!
The best of French cuisine with a fixed price menu that’s a steal. We loved the escargot and the foie gras, the filet mignon was perfect and likewise the grand marnier soufflé. Our waiter, Lucas, was knowledgeable and friendly. The music’s very French but at least not intrusive whilst the decor is something of a shrine to Joan of Arc. We loved it for delivering a great food experience without any trendy gimmicks.
Have been coming here for many many years (since I moved to SF in 1975) and it is consistently wonderful and food is always great. Love to come here with friends and of course bring out of town guests for a treat. Have never been disappointed. Love the unique atmosphere and decor; it is warm and inviting.
The whole menu is fixed price and you get a wonderful meal for such a reasonable price. We were surprised it is not busier. All the courses and meals were great. We had a wide range... haddock, osso bucco, steak and shrimp/scallops. The recommended wine went with the food perfectly. Desert souffle were awesome and not to be missed. Service was good. A great meal.
Probably the best meal we four Brits had in three weeks touring California, Nevada and Arizona. Quiet relaxed elegant French restaurant, delicious, varied and well-cooked 4 course prix fixee menu (several choices each course ) and extensive wine menu. Good value, excellent service; violinist (Saturday night)
Lovely restaurant set in the basement of the hotel.
I had the lamb which was 5/5 and my partner had the beef Bourguignon which he rated as 3/5 so overall we marked it 4/5
Slightly disappointed at the desert, many people have reported it as amazing but the soufflé was short of that.
Lovely service and a charming manager
We would definitely go back and recommend it to have dinner.
This place is a Hidden Treasure! The food was amazing from presentation to the last bite. Whimsical atmosphere and great for tables of 2 to 20. Wonderful staff and the chef wanders the dining room to speak with guests / very appreciated. The menu makes it easy to create a fabulous dining experience. We'll be back!!!
If there were more than 5-stars, this restaurant would get them. Prix Fixe - 4 course meal - French cuisine for the American palette. My favorite item is the Grand Marnier Souffle. Best dessert anywhere. Wonderful wine list with reasonable prices. Lower level of the Cornell Hotel De France.
We felt like we descended into the heart of a restaurant in the middle ages of Paris. The decor is medieval and feels like a hidden cavern with the entry arches and the images of Warrior Jeanne. Eve was a wonderful server who was very attentive. Value is terrific for four beautifully plated courses. It feels like a secret dining spot for both locals and tourists. We live close by and will definitely be back.
Absolutely charming! Family owned & operated, authentically French, we had the most delightful dining experience. The owners came by each table to visit and chat a bit, and so did the chef, who grew the heirloom tomatoes for our salad in his own garden. He was glad we had ordered the grand marnier souffle, which he was especially proud of. Oh my word -- I've never had a souffle so divine! The violinist was a nice touch too. What a perfect night!!!
