La Folie is a French restaurant located in Russian Hill of San Francisco. Chef Roland Passot, with his wife Jamie opened La Folie in March of 1988. He combines the freshest ingredients in exotic combinations. Each plate leaves the kitchen resembling art-a canvas of color and design that tastes even better than it looks. La Folie continues to be rated as one of the top restaurants, receiving a star from the Michelin Guide, 4 stars from the San Francisco Chronicle and 4 stars from San Francisco Magazine. In celebration of 21 years, The Passots have expanded their bar into a lounge located next door, perfect for before or after dinner drinks. <br /><br />**We thank all of our guests for voting La Folie <br /><br />Best French Restaurant - 7x7 Magazine <br />Best French Restaurant - San Francisco Magazine<br />Best French Restaurant - SF Weekly <br />Best Restaurant - Eater SF <br /><br />Merci!

"We had a wonderful birthday dinner at La Folie. The tempura duck egg, lobster and mushroom risotto (with shaved truffles), rabbit, quail/squab and peach melba baked alaska were all delicious with a careful attention to detail that I really appreciate. There are few restaurants in the area that I would recommend for a very special occasion, but this is definitely one of them, if not the best. The restaurant was busy, but the noise level was very manageable and the service was excellent."

"We enjoyed the dinner and the food was great. Improvements would be to bring the appetizers before the main dishes and gradually bring main dishes since it's hard to eat everything while it's warm when it comes at once (or fit if on the table. I'd also increase the spiciness and lower the sugar on the eggplant -- far too sweet. But generally very good."

A word from The Fly Trap<br />Melding the modern and the classic, Chef Hoss Zaré brings vibrant flavors to the historic Fly Trap Restaurant. Chef Zaré’s menu draws inspiration from across the Mediterranean and his Persian/Azeri heritage to showcase ingredients from San Francisco’s local markets.<br />At The Fly Trap, guests can enjoy a bustling neighborhood happy hour, dine casually at the communal tables, or delight in the elegant main dining area. An artisan cocktail list, innovative desserts, eclectic wine list and a warm, genuine sense of hospitality appeal to the neighborhood and out-of-town guests. The Fly Trap is located in the South of Market area, just 2 blocks from the Moscone Center.
