For 20 years, Chapeau! has been one of the best kept San Francisco secrets for excellent French cuisine and a steal of an early bird prix fixe menu. Husband-and-wife owners greet guests like old friends in the charming, intimate space. Chef Philippe Gardelle toggles between the kitchen or kissing guests on the cheek as they leave.

Chapeau! Chapeau! Chapeau!
