Great food ... strange ""service experience""

Somewhat of a strange experience at this restaurant. The food was fantastic (butternut squash soup, ribeye, roasted chicken, creme brulee). The environment was solid ... not elbow-to-elbow coziness but no tumbleweeds rolling through either. As a restaurant-goer, I'm low maintenance - I order quick, never complain about the food, pride in being polite/respectful, enjoy the food, and tip well. But the one thing I h... view more

Top Class

Genuine French (Basque-French) cuisine at its best.\r Fringale is still my favourite in Frisco with Tripp Mauldin as head chef!

Great restaurant.

Fringale is one of the true hidden gems of San Francisco. I've been there twice, on two different dates. if you want to charm and impress company, this is a great venue. Great french fare, sweet people and service, and a good wine selection. highly recommended!

Very bad service

We went to Fringale for dinner though food is good service is too bad . Its not good treatment for guests where you want to spend some time with friends. Infact they rush you up in all aspects. I don't really recomend if some one looking to go for this resturant. Its better to train their staff to be more polite with guests.

Good food.

Dined there last night and the food was great. Our server was good and had a good sense of humor, despite he forgot a few items that were ordered. The flour less chocolate cake is to die for. Over all the experience was good. The only thing that was a concern was that we had ordered a drink with kettle one and we saw the bartender use stoli instead but still got charged for a kettle one =(.

Eat quick and get out

I made a reservation several weeks in advance to celebrate my mother's birthday at Fringale. We had hoped for an enjoyable dinning experience but all night we felt somewhat rushed by the waiter (asking us for our order directly after we sat down, etc). After we had finished our main course and were enjoying our champagne, WE WERE ASKED TO LEAVE BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE WAITING FOR THE TABLE. WE HADN'T EVEN LOOKED AT THE ... view more

Absolutely delicious food

You will not be disappointed. The food is outstanding. The ambiance is great. The service was fantastic. Our waiter Stephen had recommendations when we asked. He was also quite charming and personable. We arrived early on a weekday and we had reservations, although at 6pm there was hardly anyone in the restaurant yet. However, by the time we left the place was quite full, so I'd recommend reservations. For ap... view more

Great food in an intimate setting

One of the best meals I've had in a long time. The food was amazing. Everything we ate was terrific. The portions are small but the perfect size if you want to enjoy three full courses. I felt it was reasonably priced. I can understand the comments about service. There is definitely a ""french aire"" to the attitude but our service was wonderful and the waiter was great. We had them call us a cab (essential ... view more

Wonderful staff, great food

I went to Fringale after a number of recommendations. My group and I were pleasantly surprised. The staff was very accomodating and our window table was ready within 5 minutes. The food was fabulous, especially the shrimp and duck confit. You can tell everything is fresh and made in house, no frozen or canned food here...Their wine selection is very nice with many different selections. Our waiter was very knowledg... view more

Avoid at all costs unless you need to be degraded and embarrassed

I read all the great reviews for this place and then I decided to have dinner there with my significant other. When you enter the place you feel small, and when you leave you feel even smaller. The attitude on the staff was such a turn off that I simply turned around and left never to return. I never tasted the food because the service and pompousity was so incredibly thick, it is impossible to feel welcome and ke... view more
