I had heard about this place for some time and never made it. It was so much better than I had expected. Tall ceilings, candles on tables, and a boisterous crowd makes this place both lively and intimate. The food was fantastic - I had the fried chicken (a house specialty) prepared with some strange and interesting spices. It was amazing (and the portion was huge). The scallops were also great. The chocolate cream pot for desert delectable without being over the top sweet. All in all I loved it and would definitely come again.

One of the most fabulous places in the city to have brunch. Sunlight pours into the space, and even if you are dining inside, you still feel like you're out in the courtyard. Mimosas are definitely in order, and although they aren't bottomless, just indulge and order 2 or 3 rounds. The famous organic fruit Pop Tarts are a must order, and they're seasonal, so make sure to try one of each. Everything on the menu is divine -- you can't go wrong with anything. The best part of it all is that brunch isn't ridiculously expensive here, although you might think it would be. Most dishes are $8-15.

One of the early pioneers of the Mission district foodie scene. It's still worth a visit, especially on nice evenings. Don't plan to see a good foreign movie on the neighboring building wall in the courtyard- it's more just for dramatic ambiance.

The brunch food is pretty tasty, albeit a little expensive, but I would not come here again based on the incredibly slow service we experienced at our 2 p.m. reservation. I think we finished our meal at 4:30. At 2 p.m., you don't expect a crazy wait for brunch fare.
At least they took reservations?

This funny little industrial space deep in the Mission district has been converted into a beautiful, innovative and sophisticated restaurant. My best friend and I went here to celebrate a special occasion and we were not disappointed. Their menu is ever changing, and always creative and inspired - i mean, where else might grilled cocoa-ajwaan kobe bavette steak, with truffled potato-celery root puree and Zinfandel butter be on the menu? As part of the decor, they project a movie onto the wall (hence the name Foreign Cinema). For most customers it's background noise or a conversation piece, but others seriously watch it. The movie changes once a month, you can check the website for what will be on when you visit.

Fresh, locally-sourced food served in a hip Mission space with awesome movies showing in the dining room: that's Foreign Cinema. Good raw oyster bar, and some truly spectacular combinations when the kitchen gets it just right. It's not my favorite restaurant in San Francisco, but on a warm night, with a movie showing on the patio, the ambiance is just about as good as the city gets.
