What Insiders Are Saying
Zazie is a Cole Valley institution at brunch, but don't sleep on dinner here either.
We've been coming here for many years, even before we discovered the great Doggie Monday deal ($10 off a bottle of wine and treats for the dog). The last couple of times we visited, the blush was off the rose -- everything was fine, but nothing rocked our world (although the service was impeccable as always, by the hyper but unflappable waiter). Last night Zazie was back to its very high standards: bistro fare done to a turn. The mussels came in a creamy sauce so rich we had to send the waiter back for more bread twice. Escargots were not doled out stingily in individual shells; a swarm of them swam in another rich dark sauce. All the entrees were delicious and had us playing "chinese restaurant", swapping bites. The vibe on the back porch was totally relaxed, and despite one larger dog making threatening growls at the smaller pooches, no altercations ensued.
There’s a warm, familial vibe even if it was our firs time. Took a while for the host to come up to us when we arrived a half-hour before our reservation; but he was welcoming and immediately found a us a table for two.
The warm fresh roll presaged a lovely meal: mesclun light dressed in balsamic vinegar, mussels in cream toast start; New York steak with three spears of asparagus and grilled trout on a bed of roasted potatoes; and fruit crumble with coffee.
Service was quick, unobtrusive.
Our tab was $141, including 2 glasses of red at $14 per.
The no-tip-expected policy simplifies the process knowing the staff gets its fair.
Excellent! Wonderful food. Would definitely go again.
Amazing as always - get the fettucini when you go in and tuesday bring your own wine!
Monday night doggie dinner is always fun! The people are friendly and the food is very good. My daughter had a nice birthday dinner and her French bulldog puppy enjoyed the outing!
Monday night on the patio, a must have experience for dog lovers! If you are not fond of well behaved dogs next to you while you eat, you can always choose the indoor dinning room.
We enjoy coming here for a date night after ongoing doctor's appointments at UCSF. Zazie never disappoints and always provides a yummy and fun dinner experience in the city before we travel home. We enjoyed the prix fixe option - definitely a fabulous choice and a special treat that the Boeuf Bourguignon was on the prix fixe menu that evening!! Merci beaucoup!
The back patio is adorable and a great atmosphere. Every plate is amazing. Loved the Salmon dish both times I had it. Can’t wait to come back for brunch.
Fabulous restaurant as usual and were not disappointed with the continued excellent quality of the food and great service.
I couldn’t have made a better choice for a quiet celebratory dinner with my daughter, the price was amazing considering the excellent quality of the dishes. Highly recommend.
Zazie’s is one of my favorite restaurants. I go for dinner and occasionally for brunch (during the week to avoid the crazy line). Everything on the menu is delicious and items change with the seasons. I love dining in the back garden. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Overall, outstanding.
Lovely, lovely dinner. Good and service are always spectacular and consistent. As my adult daughter said before our arrival “I could eat here every night!”
Amen. And kudos to Zazie for everything, including giving your employees a livable wage.
The Lapin ala Moutarde was excellent. The meat was very tender and the dijon sauce was not too mustardy (upsets my stomach if it is). Likewise the mash potatoes were very good. Will definitely be coming back.
Great little restaurant. Everyone there is nice and and smiling --says a lot. The food is amazing --the veggie pasta to die for. Love the garden --so quaint. Recommend highly...
Wonderful service. Charming atmosphere. Fabulous flavors. A new favorite!
Wonderful food, service and location.
It was very noisy. So much so that we had trouble maintaining conversation across the small table. Other than that, everything was just fine. Really nice and efficient waitress. Very good food.
Really delicious and affordable food in a great environment! The patio is really cute and well-heated for a late night dinner. This place is known for brunch, but trust me, don't miss out on their dinner menu! The people who work there are very friendly and knowledgable about the food. They also give you a discount on Mondays if you bring your dog (!!!) and no corkage fee on Tuesdays. Seriously an amazing find for the city in terms of quality and price point!
Great food. Great Service. Great ambience. Zazie has a regular clientele that's delightful to have in the restaurant. Zazie pioneered the idea of revenue sharing and benefits for its employees. The idea stuck and the vibe in the restaurant is really positive.
Such a hidden jewel! Intimate and every bite is delicious in this cozy, wonderful neighborhood! If you're in Cole Valley - go! If you're not in Cole Valley GO! Worth it.
One of the best restaurants in the city. For real.
Dinner is better than brunch. Nice bistro atmosphere, sit outside with a friend or loved one. Relax, eat a leisurely meal, drink some wine and enjoy yourself.
Always an amazing meal At Zazie, with something for everyone!
Great restaurant with amazing food and service. Close quarters so volume is moderate, but Zazie is a must recommend for anyone going for French food in SF.
I love this place! I have been here for brunch and it was a long wait (but super delicious). I brought my parents here and they were thrilled, the food was incredible (you can taste the quality). PLUS they treat their employees really well by including tip in the menu to provide health care, 401k match, etc. This is just a feel good place to be.
Such a cute neighborhood restaurant! Ambiance is romantic, price is fair, food is good! I love that they’ve incorporated the tip and I wish more restaurants would do that. I can’t wait to come back for brunch next time!
Great! Very friendly staff!
First time at Zazie's - and we had a lovely birthday celebration - great table and great service. Nice to visit a lovely neighborhood restaurant in San Francisco.
The service was a little off this time. We seemed forgotten - left alone ?! - but we had lots of time, so it turned out not to be a big deal.
amazingly good food, a bit close quarters but absolutely worth it.
Great food and service, as always! I enjoy the outdoor dining here, not normally something I would go for. At Zazie, however, I usually request it.
Amazing food, amazing service. The date went just perfect)
We love Zazie. We went on Valentines Day dinner-a prixfixe menu. Between the 2 of us we had every selection. The neighborhood low-key ambiance has always attracted us and we like the no tipping policy. The country French cuisine is always well prepared-that night special dishes were the wild mushroom soup and the beef bourginon. Dessert was Strawberry-rhubarb crumble with creme fraiche-delicious . Prices are very reasonable including extensive wine by the glass selections which are well curated . We’ll be back!
Great place, been going there for years. A bit cold outside on the covered patio, despite
the heaters though
I brought three friends I had taught with 40 years ago. One of the women had never been to Zazie and she was raving with every bite of her Crispy Duck Entree. The rest of us were thoroughly happy with our selection of Bourride Zadie (seafood stew), Pasta de la Courge, and Poisson en Papillote (salmon in parchment paper). The wait-staff were wonderful, too. Can't wait 'til our next visit!
We really enjoyed food, service and atmosphere in this hidden gem. By all means, check it our
Zazie is great!! Patio so pretty-good & service excellent!
Fabulous for dinner- I always typically come for brunch with I was impressed by the dinner menu and plan to come back!
I always enjoy an evening at Zazie"s.
I also write a comment pertaining to the bathroom. Even a teeny space can be nicely decorated..and not be an expensive face lift.
Everyone was incredibly polite and helpful, and the food was fantastic. It was easy to feel welcome and get comfortable, and the perfect spot for an anniversary dinner. Highly recommended. Thank you, Zazie! Hope to be back soon.
