"My mother and I ate at Cafe Bastille for lunch during SF Restaurant Week. I absolutely loved the inside decor and wallpapers. It gave such a French feel to the place that I thought I suddenly transported to France. Their cocktails were delicious and very cute. We ordered mushroom risotto but the waiter got our order wrong and gave us the veal with rice pilaf instead. However, the veal was so delicious we couldn't even complain. The cakes were also amazing and our cafe lattes came with these cute dark chocolates. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone to loves French food and I'm going back to try the risotto next time."

"This was the second time we visited Cafe Bastille. Last time it was summer and we sat outside and this time we sat inside. The waitress/hostess was so friendly and when I ordered a ginger ale for my husband who had a little stomach ache she told us that she was sorry but they didn't have any ginger ale. Before we knew it she was serving him one....she walked to the restaurant next door and got one from there! It was the nicest thing ever and we will never forget her kindness. The food is phenomenal, the best and we will be sure to return when we are in San Francisco next time."

"We stopped here for lunch during our trip to San Francisco, and I am very glad we did. One of the oldest running restaurants in the little alleyway, the people are what make this little gem so memorable. Of course, when it come to french cuisine, they do it right too. Delicious food and great service made this a great little find. We will definitely return in the future.
Thanks so much"

"The food was ok, actually pretty good, but not consistent with the Menu, which showed "rice pilaf," and what arrived was just seemed white rice, a bit of a disappointment.
Also, not any special value deal for The Restaurant Week, Main Course + Desert/$ 25 was just about what the prices were on the regular everyday Menu.

"It was nice to discover this Bistro during SF Restaurant week. The prix fixe was a good value and very genrous in its portion. I really liked the steamed mussels mariniere altough it could have been less salty. The French Onion soup was delicious . I rellay enjoyed the raspberry nousse cake. I highly recommend this place."

"This was my second time here - the last time I came was almost a year ago during a thunderstorm. This past Saturday, I brought my cousin who was visiting here for brunch. The food was excellent as I remembered it, and the restaurant was more fully occupied as the weather was nicer than my last visit. Everything was good except one thing: When I ordered the mussels, I wish the server checked with me whether I wanted the large or small portion instead of assuming that I'd want the large."

"The food was of high quality, and the bread served was hot, fresh, and delicious.
The seating area outside, however, was uncomfortable (slanted floor, hard pan-like metal seats.
The service was brusk, if efficient.
Overall, for the price, the value was below standards.

"This would be missed by most and that is a shame. Tons of great restaurants down this darling alley. This French cafe is like being in a bistro off the beaten path in Paris. Great food and service. Will return on next trip to SF"

"To start, Belden Place is a great scene with all of the restaurants in this charming alleyway. I held a business lunch at Café Bastille and no one was disappointed. One of my colleagues had a delicious chicken sandwich, another had a croque monsieur and I had a crepe with salade. Quite delicious and we'll be back! Very good service as well."

"Really good food too! I would definitely suggest this restaurant for groups as well. Very nice environment. Pleasant and cozy atmosphere. I requested a reservation at the last minute on a holiday for a group lunch and got the reservation the day before. Very considerate staff and great cook."
