With its lively, informal décor evocative of turn-of-the-century France, Absinthe Brasserie & Bar in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley neighborhood romances locals and visitors alike.
Very lively and yet very cozy to go on special occasions. I have been here 2 times and both times for late night desserts. Delicious deserts and pair them with wine recommendations.
The scotch collection oh my god
Delightful, comfortable, mature brasserie. Perfect for after theater. Great cocktails.
Best French onion soup ever! Also if the drink you want is not on the menu, no problem. The bar tender will still make it for you.
Well crafted cocktails.
The private room is great for events
Amazing restaurant. Love the tartare appetizer. Menu changes often so recommendations are hard to make, all good!
I waited more than 30 minutes for an overcooked omelette and really bad potatoes. I am not coming back.
Food was great, nice atmosphere, wait staff was incredibly helpful. Cocktails were a little sweet for me. Ordered pretzels and spaghetti, both were great. They also did a great job celebrating a bday!
Excellent cocktails. Try the Ginger Rogers.
Cocktails taste like sugar water with color
Nice French style food. Good atmosphere. Coq au vin and oysters were really good.
Fabulous drinks and pretty good food.
Open late - great for tea and dessert...
Octopus, Onion Soup & Chocolate desserts!
Romantic for dates. Cocktails. Great food.
Their ceviche dish is pretty flavorful and spicy, the French onion soup and buttersquash soup were excellent.
Good night late night eats. The Mac and cheese is satisfying after a hard evening of drinking.
Spanish coffee - get it
Excellent cocktails & yummy food too!
Brunch menu changes often but if you come across the duck confit ragout: don't hesitate.
Unpleasant personal but nice cocktails.
Lamb chop for dinner is better than their stack. But the coq au vin is the best anywhere.
Brunch, cocktails, wine
The cocktails are great, especially the ones with chartreuse and rye.
French cuisine, duck
Best oysters. Of. My. Life.
The ceviche, pork belly, and mussels were delicious! Walking distance to the Opera House, and servers are conscious of show times to remind you to skedaddle!
Get a Danish Mary for brunch. It's a bloody mary made with Akvavit
Really great burger. Get it with cheddar and bacon.
Love that steak tartare
Croque Monsieur and cocktails!
The Bloody Mary is divine :)
Customize your burger!
A great place to have dinner before heading over to the symphony.
moules! Get the muscles
If you don't mind the LOUD bistrot ambiance
Great Cheese platter!
OK... If you're lucky enough to spot the Apple Pie Panna Cotta... Just say YES! Right up there with the best...
Osso buco. Delicious.
Get the ceviche!!
Get the duck and the pretzels. You will not be disappointed.
Friendly staff and amazing food. Recommend the crab and gnocchi.
Try the chicken and rice - Awesome!
The duck breast is out of this world - so succulent and flavorful!
Coq au vin. Do it.
