This restaurant is fabulous on all levels: atmosphere, service, food, wine list, every thing. Dining here is an experience you will never forget and for all the right reasons. It's expensive, but worth every dollar and more.

My husband and I had an incredibly romantic dinner after I got my hair done (Thank you Len of LenDoesMyHair!) as it was our wedding anniversary (I'm so glad he didn't forget like last year!) Anyway, I met my husband at the restaurant

Pros: Delicious, visually appealing food, great service!

Cons: Pricey but hey I'm worth it!

Fleur De Lys is our favorite place to have French cuisine in San Francisco.

The decor is beautiful - gold touches, soft, plush seating and spa-like co-ed bathrooms.

The service is impeccable. A server once took my plate when I wasn't done (he asked if I was, but I thought he asked me if it was good!) and they quickly asked me if I wanted the dish again, free of charge. Marcus, the wine director, is a pleasure to chat with and is extremely helpful in choosing a wine. Boris and Gabriella are 2 waiters who usually serve us - they are both very friendly and efficient.

The food is rich and delicious! We usually stick with our favorites which are the foie gras appetizers, sweetbreads with a poached egg (our personal favorite - very rich and creamy!) and filet mignon & foie gras (cooked to perfection with a beautifully seared foie gras on top). I've tried the lobster and mac & cheese before and it was good, but not one my favorite dish. I We've been here on our anniversary and the complimentary dessert was the perfect touch to a perfect dinner!

If you happen to catch Chef Hubert Keller on the days he is working, he will personally come out towards the end of the night and say hello to EVERY single diner there. He is very sweet, humble and has nothing but nice things to say about everything!

Most of the foods are rich and I find that most people are surprised or turned off by this. When you're splurging on a delicious dinner, such as Fleur De Lys, calories shouldn't matter! Be prepared to spend at least $200 for 2 people (excluding drinks).

The food, the people, the decor...everything at Fleur De Lys is outstanding. I highly recommend Fleur De Lys!

Good food not a doubt, but no WOW factor. Portion size was decent. Service was good, but I have had better. If you don't love cheese, then save a buck. It's okay, but the cheese didn't really add much to my pallete.

Fleur de Lys is more than just a classic French restaurant: it's a San Francisco institution. The dining room, decked out in ornate draped fabrics, with high-backed chairs and a plush rug, spells old-school romance. Heading up the kitchen…
