    Maybe my expectations were too high for the newly opened Maison Danel given reviews and how difficult it was to get a table (I had to book over 2 weeks in advance) but I was disappointed. Don't take me wrong, the food and service were good, but my glass with freshly squeezed orange juice, which cost $6.50, was not even half full and they did not have chocolate almond croissants in stock. I also found the menu to be quite limited (I got eggs Benedict with smoked salmon, which were good but nothing special) as did my BF (he ordered a burger, which he didn't like). Neighborhood... not my favorite but I'd ignore it, if food were amazing. My favorite part was their pastries, I'd be back for those, and our waiter was great, but there are much better places for brunch in the city.

    My friend and I went for brunch on a Sunday. It was mostly full and there was just one waiter plus the owner serving the tables. They are both French. Our server misunderstood a couple of my requests so there was a bit of a mix up but not a big deal. The French toast is very good. And the European hot chocolate is magnifique!

    Maison Danel is the most gorgeous new culinary addition to Polk Street. Founded by husband's Chef Danel and David this is a culinary gem San Francisco is so lucky to have! Chef David is French-born with an extensive culinary background in France and the US and most recently in San Francisco (they are also the co-owners of Baker St. Bistro). Not only is the Interior Design beyond stunning and so cozy (you will never want to leave), but the entire dining and culinary experience is also lovely and beyond delicious! Maison Danel offers both walk in counter service and seated reservations (on OpenTable) for lunch, brunch, afternoon tea.... Whatever you're looking to experience the food is beyond tasty with true French recipes from their Pastry Chef Adrien and their Owner/Chef Danel. I found the service thoughtful and attentive and all the personal details in the recipe’s, the Maison’s design and even their logo (Chef David and Danel’s initial’s) is so sweet and touching. And, the best part about Maison Danel is it's kid friendly as well. Whether the adults want champagne with their tea and the kids want pastries and hot chocolate, there is truly something for everyone! Be sure to check out this delicious family-owned Maison & Patisserie soon. If you love tea it's perfect for afternoon tea, a coffee, pastry, brunch, they truly have it all!
