Foreign and indie films provide the arty backdrop for the dining experience at the popular, romantic, quintessentially San Franciscan Foreign Cinema, but it's the California/Mediterranean farm-to-table fare that takes center stage.
We offer tables for dinner and the ever-popular weekend brunch.
“…In this hip, loftlike space "dinner and a movie" become one joyous event. Classic films...are projected on a wall in a large inner courtyard while you're served perfectly shucked oysters on the half shell, warm brandade, house-cured sardines, chef-owners' Gayle Pirie and John Clark's excellent fried chicken, bavette steak, or seafood stew from the dinner menu; or a Dungeness crab panino or chicken-liver pâté from the bar bites menu…” – Fodor's
“Knockout Brunch – Rise and shine with this fun, festive party. Sip an Indian-spiced bloody mary, enjoy a whimsical dessert inspired by a favorite childhood treat – and try bacon and eggs like you’ve never had them before...” – Bon Appetit
Located in the bustling Mission district, the setting is urban, warm, and lively -- whether you’re dining fireside indoors, or al fresco in the covered inner courtyard where the films projected on the back wall provide an arty, romantic backdrop.
