Zazie: Restaurant Info 11 November,2010Wendy Goodfriend

    I am a local in Cole Valley and used to frequent Zazie. The thing that made me stop going was a continual lack of cleanliness…from the tables, silverware, glasses, condiment jars to the main dishes.

    Indeed, their food inspections seem to always score shockingly low (current score is 78 out of 100). Always check here for ratings of all SF restaurants:

    The restaurant is in SF not Menlo Park.

    Chose this restaurant after viewing ‘Check, Please!’ TV show. Was just as great a dining experience as promised. We had the outdoor patio dining area to ourselves for awhile and were seated in a nice warm spot (they furnish blankets for your legs if you get chilled). The prix-fixe dinner is the way to order: Loved the Salade Louis Malle, Salmon en Papillote and Vanilla Creme Brulee. Left feeling quite warm and well fed. Service attentive, but not intrustive. Great way to end a day after visiting the Academy of Sciences & de Young Museum. N-Judah line just a 1/2 block away, so easy access by public transportation from the downtown area.

    Two Stars: I really wanted to like Zazie; but, much to my surprise it was a bit of a disappointment. We went for Sunday Brunch. The wait for a table was well over an hour, no reservations for Brunch, so you wait on the sidewalk with many others waiting for what has been billed by so many as a great French restaurant.
    First, the host is not friendly (he was not French – spoiler right off the bat). He was very “as a matter of a fact.” Must be nice to be so successful that you don’t need to be respectful to your prospective guests (smile and have a little fun buddy, life can’t be that bad).
    Second, the Brunch menu is hardly French, more a little along the lines of an upscale Denny’s. That may be a little harsh, but for the reputation, wait and prices I had set my chops all ready for something very French and special. What is that you say; “no French onion soup on Sunday Brunch menu,” are you kidding me?
    I had hoped for a plate of delicious French cheese, a light and flaky croissant with slices of fresh fruits. Instead it was cold pancakes, cold eggs and cold bacon. Brunch for 5 $120 out the door. No coffees, or other special drinks, mostly water at our table.
    Lots of rules like ‘no substitutions because our staff is very busy and the kitchen is too small.’ Really? Again; not about the guest but their staff instead.
    Plan on spending around a half hour looking for a parking space.
    The server was very nice; but, clearly working too many tops for the demand.
