Frascati is a Mediterranean style bistro, located in one of San Francisco’s most desirable neighborhoods – Russian Hill. When a guest walks through the door of Frascati, he or she is initially treated to a friendly and comfortable dining room. Frascati encompasses a truly European aura, but is also a cozy, San Francisco neighborhood bistro. This tri-level restaurant features warm colors, high ceilings, antique light fixtures and street views of cable cars clanging up and down Hyde Street. The natural light and energetic atmosphere all convey a lively spirit.

Our cuisine is inspired from the Mediterranean coast and has strong Californian influences. The menu shifts frequently to utilize the best and freshest ingredients any season has to offer. Also, we pride ourselves on all of our house made desserts and ice creams.

Of equal importance, Frascati has become known for having an eclectic wine list which nicely complements the food.

    We have eaten here on our anniversary for years. Not just a tradition, this is a great place and romantic without being pretentious. Reserve for 5 pm when they open and get there a few minutes early if you want a window seat! But that doesn't really matter. We love this place.

    We liked the location and the overall ambiance. We also liked our waiter. The bread the the tomatoes that were served were delicious. My mom had the fettuccine bolognese which were good however there was too much sauce. I had the flat iron steak with the polenta. I would have liked it if the food had been hotter. It arrived tepid and the polenta was lumpy. I was expecting the meat to have a grilled look instead it was soft with too much oil on the dish. The asparagus soup we both had was good and hot considering we asked for it to be extra hot when served.

    This is a Russian Hill find! We were greeted by the owner and made welcome. Our server was engaging and knowledgeable and the food delicious! My dinner companion claimed her pappardelle was the best she had ever eaten…the noodles were really thin and the Calabrian chili sauce delicious. My fettuccine was too. She did plan to eat all her cobbler, but did…and I thoroughly enjoyed house made chocolate mint chip ice cream. (They sell pints of the ice cream to go.) We will return…it was a wonderful experience! Can’t wait to share it with my husband and friends!

    Delicious dinner! Great park chops and duck. We also had octopus salad and gnocchi that was delicious for the appetizer. Fabio , our waiter, was wonderful and gave us a great Pinot recommendation that was not expensive and very good. The bread pudding is more like a brownie a la mode and excellent! Also amazing berry cobble. My sister-in-law is a food critic in LA and was impressed! Fabio made the experience special and we will be back.

    Frascati is and has been one of our favorite places to eat John & Rebecca are great hosts and wonderful people. The restaurant has a funky Chic feel to it with an open air kitchen and understated elegance with the tables and the decor. Nothing screams at you. It's a warm elegance. The food is high end comfort food, that mixes California cuisine that doesn't try to be too stuffy. I've never had a bad meal nor bad service. It just "wows" you with it's consistency and high quality

    We were seated in small room upstairs from the main dinning room with a low ceiling, a small window, and walls all around; just a like a jail cell. This is outrageous for an upscale restaurant on Hyde St. where ambiance is a big part of the experience. We had an out of town guest for whom getting the flavor of San Francisco dinning was important. When I informed the owner that the room was garbage, he threw us out and told us to never come back.

    Supposedly in the 30 or so top restaurants in SF. Either we missed the point entirely, other diners standards are low, or maybe we went to the wrong place. Exceedingly average, indifferent service, food had no distinct taste-literally any of it. God Bless them but SF is renowned as a food paradise and I guess we’ll just keep looking.

Food was delicious - appetizer through dessert was just great! Grilled prawns, Bread salad, Pork Chop, apple cobbler - we highly recommend. We even took home a pint of cookies and cream ice cream.

    The service at Frascati was very attentive. The restaurant is not large, but that's part of the charm along with the location on Russian Hill. It's also nice to visit a place that has a loyal clientele and isn't full of tourists, though we found it and we're not from San Francisco. We were disappointed that the online menu wasn't exactly the one presented. Several in our party were looking forward to a filet but settled for a flat iron steak. Two of the three were very satisfied with the meat, though all thought that the polenta lacked anything to recommend it. The asparagus was excellent. Other diners had the halibut (superb) and the fettuccini (popular and excellent). Dessert, especially the cinnamon apple cobbler, were wonderful. The wine list is also quite good. It's a place that is comfortable and casual chic.

    Loved, loved, loved our dinner at Frascati. Ask for a table upstairs where it's much quieter and more intimate than the first floor. Service was prompt and attentive. Highly recommend the salads to start. They're large enough to share. For entrees, we ordered the pork chop with butternut squash puree and roasted chicken with broccolini. Both were fantastic. Homemade ice cream or sorbet by the pint provides the perfect ending. We ordered a pint of the strawberry sorbet with three spoons and dug in!
