SF Weekly's Description

The very personal French food cooked by chef/owner Roland Passot is ambitious, showy, rich, and often delicious. At the newly redecorated (in tones of red, with fewer tables) La Folie, you choose among several prix fixe options: Menu Jardinière, Menu Cuistot, or assemble your own three-, four-, or five-course menu, at escalating prices. Truffles appear frequently, used to good effect. Even the artisanal cheese plate is all-French.

    This unintimidating, cozy French restaurant is one of the city’s best dining experiences. Chef Roland Passot is in the kitchen every night. As recommended by Travel Channel host, Anthony Bourdain.

  • Eater on 04/16/13

    Industry types pop in to this richly decorated Russian Hill hideaway for table-service, well-done cocktails and gussied up bar bites, like truffled popcorn.
