We started with 6 oysters & foie gras appetizer.It was tasty like out if this world . We got grilled octopus & mussels also great. Rib eye stake was prepared very juicy with side of shaved busses sprouts and potato purée . Very satisfying meal . Friendly service and the best is cork free Tuesdays . We really enjoyed it.

Small, intimate French bistro near Mission. The menu has few selections,but they are prepared with care and are delicious! Grilled octopus is succulent and has a sauce that accentuates the flavors of both the octopus and the grilled vegetables. We had the duck and the steak frites. They were both awesome. The flavors were tasty without those overly rich sauces... More

Great venue, atmosphere, service and food! We had a party of 8 and were seated in the front area which was great as being in the back wouldn't have had the same experience especially for the folks in our party who were here on business. They loved every bit of the food and experience!

Love to sit at the bar and order a kir cocktail. Love to sit at a table and order steak frites. Traditional French bistro in the heart of the Mission. Way, way cool and a bit too popular and too loud. But boy is it good!

I visited Garcon last week for the first time with a group of friends. The food and service were excellent and the venue is quaint and romantic. After a round of cocktails, we decided to order family-style for our group of 8, selecting the cheese platter, duck liver pate, steak, and a host of sides. All were quite unique and... More

It was close to our Airbnb home in SF, so we went there for dinner on a Friday night. Thankfully we reserved a table, it was packed! It's a very cozy place! The staff is very attentive and very very nice! The food was also great! Overall we had a great evening and overall experience! Would definitely go here again!

We loved the food from oysters to foie gras to French onion soup to pasta and coqui vin. Reasonable portions and beautifully plated. Service was friendly and attentive. Prices reasonable. It does get noisy so might not work well for parties above four people. Parking lot about two blocks away.

I'm a great fan of French cuisine, the old style French cuisine, the kind that Julia Childs used to write about, cooked with lots of butter and wine. This was my first visit to Garcon and I couldn't have been happier. Now that fois gras's back in vogue, Garcon is definitely the place in San Francisco. I shared the appetizer... More

The location was nice but it was so loud that I hardly heard what the waitress asked me. I ordered the steak frites, unfortunately was the meat tough (good taste on the outside), the french fries were boring and the salad on the side got drowned in vinegar. The quality could not live up to the price.

Thank Janne W

Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners.
