    One of the best spots on the Row fosho. Seasonally changing menu, organic farm to table food, fresh oysters, unique cocktails, and brunch. Plus you can watch the Giants game. Doesn't get much better.

    Yes, it's in an ersatz mall. But the space is FANTASTIC, & they seem to treat the classics right. Don't miss those pommes frites -- or the extreme suburban people-watching!

    Great steak and fries but I would upgrade those spuds to the Pepin version with rosemary and duck fat. Wowzer!

    The best onion soup! Better than all the onion soups I've had in Paris. The one I had in Lyon (where it originally comes from) was only just as good as Left Bank's!

    Order the truffled Parmesan french fries and dip them in the fondue aux fromages for cheesy deliciousness. :)

    Try the Crispy Pig's Ear - Just a sample. Actually comes as part of a salad. Tastes good, sounds good as you crunch away.

    The exotic mushrooms were fantastic! The pommes frites were nothing to write home about, decent but not as good as other reviews made them out to be.

    Fries with fresh shaved Parmesan and black truffles. Really? They're insane. And don't get me started on the truffle foie gras butter.

    Mediocre American food in a French atmosphere. The food's not bad, but go to France if you want real French food - you won't find it here.
