Fringale pioneered the South of Market culinary renaissance as one of the first true French bistros in San Francisco. Featuring French/ Basque cuisine, specialties include spicy Monterey calamari with jalapenos & chorizo, foie gras terrine with nectarine compote, bacon wrapped pork tenderloin, and braised savoy cabbage with caramelized onion sauce. Also popular is traditional duck confit served with lentils "Du Puy" in red wine sauce. The restaurant's sponged eggshell colored walls, blonde wooden chairs, sand and earth toned banquettes and verdigris bartop create a dining environment that is sophisticated, intimate and inviting. Fringale is a place where guests can drop in for a glass of wine and snack at the bar or enjoy a tantalizing meal prepared by one of the finest French kitchens in San Francisco. In addition to a full bar, Fringale's wine list offers a fine selection of California wines along with wine selections from smaller French producers.

Food was pretty good. Steak was tender and flavorful. GooglePlace - October 2017

It's not often that I leave five stars, but when I do, it has to be as balanced as nice Saint Emilion Bordeaux! Which is exactly what this restaurant has. My goodness, everything from the modest, yet powerful wine list, to the off the charts Lamb Chops. Fringale Restaurant has something for everyone at a discount compared to restaurants in the area. The wait staff and support staff were attentive and friendly, and the food arrived on time with each course exceeding expectations. The intimate, and warm environment set the vibe for one of the best dining experiences my family has had in The City for quite some time. Cheers! GooglePlace - August 2017

While the tables are a little close, and the view is currently marred by construction, the staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was divine. GooglePlace - July 2017

Classic French Bistro options away from the convention crowd. Easy pre-fix menu offered. Everything, from cocktails to dinner to dessert, perfectly done!! Go hungry as portion is large, otherwise you cannot enjoy dessert. Professional and warm service. GooglePlace - June 2017
