At Cafe Bastille, diners sip French wine and nibble on buttery escargot beneath strings of lights. It's a scene you might expect to find on the streets of Paris, but this Zagat-rated eatery makes its home in San Francisco's financial district. The dining room walls are decked out with tin signs advertising French liquors, beers, and coffees. And the menu caters to the most discerning francophile with region-specific dishes that range from mussels with all-you-can-eat fries to cassoulet, a duck confit and sausage dish that originated in Toulouse. There are also brunch and lunch options. In addition to an extensive selection of imported wines, the bistro offers craft cocktails—the decadent French Kiss, for example, mingles tart black-cherry rum with orange juice, champagne, and cassis cream tapped from the Eiffel Tower.

“Go on a nice weather day, so you can sit outside in the alley and people watch. Everyone enjoys the social alley seating on a warm evening. Although the decor on the main floor is retro fun Parisian chic, too. We enjoyed sipping a glass of wine with our three course meal and watching the people pass while savoring our food. Delightful!”
