What more can I say about this outstanding San Francisco Institution except that it’s definitely one of the best French restaurants this side of Paris. The chef, Michael is so warm - both in his greeting and his creative food. Now the food is comparable to the French Laundry and other five star Michelin restaurants. The special Duck Breast, the French Onion Soup, the Escargots and the Meringue dessert was absolutely, positively mouthwatering. Beyond incredible, beyond the very best. A gastronomic highlight. Service by each and every staff member - friendly, professional and perfection personified, especially from Michael, one of our waiters. Constant checking with us, constant water refilling and every detail attended to. Run, don't walk to this incredible San Francisco institution.

This used to be one of our favorite places then....they changed owners. The food is good however the ambience is completely gone as are most of the customers. We have tried it twice since the change of owners and I think we are done. It is still pricey and just not worth it. Very disappointing

I have to say I simply LOVE this restaurant, one of the best French places I've ever dined. I was visiting San Francisco for a few days (from NYC) and took a shot at this place. From the outside it didn't look like much (especially since it was so foggy that night), but the inside decor was quite nice and there were a bunch of people inside so it put me at ease. My date and I shared the yummy Scottish smoked salmon, the delectable escargot, and the interestingly different and sweet homemade foie gras. The best part came when I ordered the scallops - they were hands down the BEST scallops I have ever tasted, and I still dream about them. For the dessert my date and I shared the floating island and a tart which were a nice end to our meal. The service I also must note was just excellent. Our waitress was so polite and charming, we even got into a short conversation about NY. If I ever return to San Fran, I'm Definitely coming back to eat at Chouchou!!
