perfect pairing of fresh foie gras and sauternes 2/8/2009

Oh yes, if only all French restaurants in the city would follow your lead, I'd be a lot happier, and fatter, ha ha! Oh how I miss the huge, fresh, French truffles you offer to slice over everything on my degustation meal. Oh how I miss the perfect pairing of fresh foie gras and sauternes. Oh how I miss the cheeses. Oh, oh, oh! more

La Folie 4/26/2006

The only reason I ever got to eat here is that I lied and said I was in the wine business and scammed them into letting me use an expired gift certificate someone gave me. Even with $300 covered, the money on top of that (tax, tip) still made the experience one of the most expensive meals I've ever paid for – and that was without wine! This is the crème-de-la-crème of French cuisine. Personally, I have no experiences to compare it to. Foie gras on top of fillet mignon? Crazy. I can't imagine what would ever justify spending this much money on food. But if that's you're thing, I don't think you'll be disappointed. To me, La Folie is less of a restaurant and more like an art museum where instead of walking around looking at paintings, the works are on your plate and you can take a knife and a fork and cut them up and put them into your body and poop them out later. That's really how I felt eating here. more

Great! 9/23/2005

Food is flawless. The sous chef, wellI would rather not sya but the fod is good. They offer sweebreads whick is actually an orgean and not a bread but even so it is yummy, but not very sweet unless you make it with sugar or something sweet. I liked the pig's feet which actually are pigs fett but are not sweet. I like the chef he his nice and his food is good more

A Must Try for a Speical Occassion 8/23/2005

You must try to find a reason to eat at La Folie. The service is attentive without ever feeling stifling or stuffy. The wine service is outstanding and unitimidating. And the food - well each plate is a delight. The presentations are fun and elegant and the quality of each dish is outstanding. From the garlic and parsley soup to the rabbit we devoured everything. Dessert is the only part that was not over the top amazing as the rest of the dinner was. more

  • The Scene
    Gone are the marionettes and other whimsies from this Russian Hill institution. Celebrity foodies, chefs, and the cream of the neighborhood crop are now greeted by two soaring, opulent rooms. The front dining area is a grand, rose-hued box accented with copper-colored drapes, warm wood and white-topped tables. A second "green room" features velvet upholstered walls, a high, marbled ceiling with peaked skylights, and elegant cream, violet and emerald accents.

    The Food
    Passot's admirers include the late Julia Child for his refined California spin on traditional French cuisine. Three- to five-course prix-fixe options allow for adventurous grazing. Foie gras saturates the menu, including a quail leg "lollipop" stuffed with the rich liver. Frogs legs, warm pig feet, stuffed rabbit and fat, braised sweetbreads delight intrepid carnivores, while seasonal "jardiniere" (garden) selections are lively and exquisite, including a multicolored, layered tower of roasted beets and goat cheese.
