    Only 3.5 stars on yelp?! Their savory roasted chicken is crisp and tender... Prob because it's roasted w/ bacon. YUM :) Skip the calamari! Must enjoy their unique 24-layer crepe and pain perdu. Nom :)

    Sporting custom chandeliers, gas lamps & a zinc bar flown in from France, the interior is dressed to impress. Expect wine to flow freely in this ode to Paris & brasserie faves like steak and fries.

    Fan of scotch? Access to an extinct vintage is a rarity, but at Cafe des Amis, Gilt City members will have what may be the last chance to experience one of Glenrothes’s finest. Cheers!

    The flatiron steak with red wine butter and fries is perfect. The peppercorn sauce is a nice addition too. Make sure to check in to get a free brownie for dessert!

    This slick French brasserie is an outlier in Cow Hollow. Their Omelette Fromage melts in your mouth, stuffed with raclette fondue and topped with a confetti of fines herbes. Read more

    Check in for a free bouchon! What I got: perfect little warm dark chocolate cake slightly crusted on the edges, topped with cool chocolate expresso sauce.

    Try the Steak Frites - #kvpinmybelly : Yummy French bistro classic! Steak cooked medium rare. Crispy fries. The salad makes me feel healthy. Add wine.

    My wife and I had a fantastic New Year's Eve dinner here in the back room by the fireplace. Food, service, ambiance all tops.

    Try the plateau de fruits de mer but tell them in France you don't but it in front of you but in the middle of the table.

    Forget everything else on the dessert menu, you want the Chocolate Bouchons, (mini brownie), it's *amazing*

    A very "parissienne" look in a trendy Street of San Francisco. Nice and hip, excellent wine selection

    Check in and you might just get a special brownie. No, not that kind of a "special brownie".

    The roast chicken is delicious, and the Rossini burger is a contender for best burger in SF.

    The free brownie Bouchon ("cork" in French- which it's about equal to in size) was KILLER!

    Don't take the espresso it's awful. Tell them espresso is much better in France. Or get a nespresso machine!

    The menu may reflect Parisian cuisine, but it’s driven by the seasonal local markets. The best of both worlds.

    For Brazilian guys: nao deixe de provar os mariscos. Eles são de uma maciez incomparável a qualidade do marisco brasileiro.
