The experience was fabulous. A big Thank you to our server Suzanne Roberts she knew the menu inside out and help with selections. We came for the bone marrow and it did not disappoint. Great service, delicious food, interesting ambiance, great lighting.
Great food but loud in the restaurant and slow service.
Good, slow service, esp for a business lunch. Nice atmosphere and food was delicious.
Good as usual sad to hear that they were closing
The restaurant is closing as of 10/7, and this was the last "special/guest chef" nights featurning a menu by Adam Sobel, the chef who got RN74 its highest ever review in 2014. The food, presentation and ambiance were exceptional. The culinary highlight was Frogs Legs a la Troisgros, which Adam told me, was a replica of what he ate in 2004 at Troisgros in Roanne, France. Exceptional taste, superb mix of spices: shallots, lemon, toasted cumin, and wonderful almost miniature frog's legs. It was a great way for a good restaurant, with great wine combinations, to go out on top.
Great value for high end food! Too bad they’re replacing this wonderful French bistro with a barbeque eatery.
I've lived in the Bay Area for 7 years now and am ashamed to say that last night was my first time there, despite walking by it daily for the last two years en route to work. I'm ashamed because the filet I had ranked among the top 3 of my life - perfectly cooked and melting in my mouth - and the au poivre style is NOT to be missed. Pricy but worth it; ambiance great too. Get here.
There were 4 of us dining at the that day. 2 of us used gift vouchers from Travel Zoo and other 2 ordered from the menu.
Voucher food was not worth the money, well, desert was actually good. Appetizer were actually very good, salad was sour and I cannot find another word to describe it. We ordered 3 different main dishes (2 PAN-ROASTED MARY’S POULET, HERB-STEAMED HALIBUT and GARDEN VEGETABLE RATATOU ILLE TARTE. None of them was worth the money.
Service and food presentation were excelled.
The restaurant is closing so it is a moot point to review. Will miss it. On my last visit, had to wait 40 minutes for our entree. During the lunch hour, so it wasn't a good experience.
Excellent Service had a great time
Food was great .
I saw some debry in my Burbon and I had to ask them to change my drink ( looks like mosquito ).
We had very hard time to find a parking spot around this restaurant . We spent almost 40 minutes to find a parking about three blocks away from this restaurant . I recommend this restaurant if you do not need to drive in the city otherwise find a restaurant with value .
Again My steak was great .
Brought a friend here for the first time, I wanted her to experience a great restaurant as I have over the years before it closed on October 2, 2017. It was a great evening, and can't wait to come back to visit International Smoke.
Everything was delicious and you get great wine choices. The vegetable tart was amazing, it could turn me into a vegetarian! I love that there are several choices of ½ glasses of wine! I have been here a few times and will miss this place!
Had to make it to RN74 before its closing. Very good, but not necessarily great food. Superb simple green salad, perfectly dressed. Filet was good but not exceptional. Excellent wine tasting opportunities.
