  • Industry types pop in to this richly decorated Russian Hill hideaway for table-service, well-done cocktails and gussied up bar bites, like truffled popcorn.
  • La Folie Factoid: Anessa = unicorns and cotton candy and rainbows. Enjoy her radiance with your cocktail!
  • One Michelin star.
  • This unintimidating, cozy French restaurant is one of the citys best dining experiences. Chef Roland Passot is in the kitchen every night. As recommended by Travel Channel host, Anthony Bourdain.
  • Try one of Shayna's "Mystery" wines on the bottle list. Awesome values.
  • A 3-course is the way to go. The chef sends out so many little compliments throughout the meal, so there's no shortage of diversity. try the FoiGras for an app. the lamb and rabbit-also amazing
  • Fernet cocktail. What could go wrong?
  • Get the "secret appetizer". Trust me on this one.
  • Anessa = unicorns and cotton candy and rainbows!
  • Try the Chocolate Bread Pudding
  • Foie gras is enough for 2 people. Although I would order one portion for myself it's so good.
  • Ask the lovely bar maiden Anessa to make you a "Bell". Muddled red bell pepper with St Germain, Gin, lemon and crushed ice. It's a revelation!
  • Truffle popcorn is a must!
  • The "mini" sliders here are absolutely delicious! It has foie gras and truffle aioli for dipping.
  • Gary Rulli, chef of Emporio Rulli, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Huckleberry Baked Alaska.
  • The chef's menu with the wine paring is hard to beat. I mourn the loss of the foie gras though.
  • The reviews don't lie - this is THE best restaurant in SF. From lobster to duck to quail to souffles, the dishes are fantastic, both in taste and presentation. And chef pops in a few dishes for free!
  • The Ahi Tartare is to die for, love the Papa's Pilar Rum had a great cocktail called Deep and Refreshing
  • Salmon lollipops!!
  • The best French restaurant ever!
