"We have been there many times, and we keep returning because of the food and Service and the uniqueness of this great French food in San Francisco. It is truly a Bistro experience. The staff is very friendly and welcoming"

"Told we couldn't come in at 11:27. Made to wait out on the porch until 11:35.
Asked for substitute of green beans for fries at the waiter's suggestion. When another waitress brought the steak with fries, we told her we had beans instead. She said, no, there were no substitutions. We disagreed. She took that dish away ( for 5 minutes )...whe could have left it and simply brought the beans. Eventually brought the dish back with the frittes removed and the beans in their place. Plopped down with a bit of ungraciousness. My dish, by then had grown cold along with the well-travelled steak.
This is a little worse than usual. But we go there for the food and try our best to ignore the staff. This is why we feel there should be an owner or a manager present. This is a serious problem with this otherwise fine restaurant. But go anyway. The food's great.

"Cafe Claude is one of my favorite go-to spots when I want to enjoy a delicious meal out in a lovely space. The staff provides consistently great service, the food is consistently delicious and of high quality, and the ambiance is warm and inviting. Out of the many times I've dined there, I've never been once been disappointed. It's a winner every time."

"I went during SF Restaurant week at 11:30am for lunch. My part of 4 had horrible service from the waiter, manager, and kitchen. We order our meals and did not receive our entrees until 1pm! We complained to the waitress and for some reason my friend's meal was pushed all the way back to the end of the line. She never got her meal because she had to go back to work. The manager cancelled her meal for us, but no special treatments. She had horrible attitude and didn't want to deal with the situation. We went in for lunch at 11:30am and left at 1:30pm. We even packed our dessert to go because we didn't want to wait anymore."

"I didn't think the $40 prix fixe menu for SF Restaurant Week was very worthwhile. The portions were not very big (my main had three measly pieces of beef stew). I was amazed by the other places I tried, but not here."

"We chose this restaurant because the description of the fixed price menu for San Francisco Restaurant Week sounded very enticing. However, the reality was very disappointing. I saw dishes being served to other guests that were not doing the Restaurant Week menu and some looked very good but unfortunately we made the wrong choice by going with the RW menu. It was a Friday night and the restaurant was very well subscribed so it must have good food - we just didn't get to experience it! The service was slow, the wines recommended were not that good, the noise level was quite loud and we were in a corner. I would not return to this restaurant."

"My friend and I wanted to try the restaurant since it was featured in Restaurant Week. It did not disappoint. We enjoyed the portions and the prix fixe menu, especially the protiferoles for dessert, and since neither of us drink, having the individual iced tea pitchers. Our server and the other help were very attentive. Too bad it was a Friday night and we were discouraged from lingering. The restaurant was very cozy to be, especially on a rainy night. Will definitely visit again."

"We went for lunch as we have always enjoyed this restaurant. After waiting for an hour for our entrees, we asked for an ETA. The waitress was apologetic but could not offer one. We asked to cancel our order. The manager gave us our bill for our appetizers and was completely unapologetic. We walked out hungry and seeing others, who arrived later than us, eating their lunch. The service has really deteriorated here."

"French food nicely prepared in a cozy setting. The server helped us navigate the menu and helped select a nice wine for us.
The restaurant reminds me of many New York restaurants on a back street. I can see why many view this as a nice meeting location.
The SF Restaurant Week prix fixe menu was excellent. We added some items to that and had the server sequence the dinner.
All in all a fun evening.
If walking recommend entering the lane from the North."

"Been here several times in past, always enjoyed the food and ambiance. Very disappointing return visit! Were put in "new seating area" next door which is cut off from and lacks the cozy ambience of the main restaurant. Also was not able to enjoy the live jazz that we came to hear! Avoid the Prix Fixe menus for dinner - overpriced for the quality of the food! Cocktails were good though, especially the "Dusty Road". Our hostess was kind enough to get us the recipe! And our server was great as well!"

"I love Café Claude. It reminds me of a cute little French bistro transported to San Francisco. The food is very, very good. I had the roast chicken (those French folks sure know how to roast a chicken) which was serve in a little broth with nicoise olives. My date had a duck ragu on papperdelle. We both had an excellent time. I find it a very romantic spot."
