Cuisine French

More than $75

Classic French technique and a hint of Japanese influence informs the refined food at Roland Passot's Russian Hill stalwart, which draws an older crowd of wealthy regulars and a younger set celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, and other milestones. Begin with a cocktail in the next-door lounge, before making your way into the warm, persimmon-and-bronze dining room, where an elegant, white-clothed table awaits. Food is consistently delicious and well-balanced, as an oozy tempura-fried duck egg over a fluffy sweetbread pancake with wild mushroom salad ably showcases. The three- four- and five-course set menus allow for plenty of choice, whether you're seeking a rich take on duck à l'orange with quince purée, or a more clean-lined seared black cod in fragrant miso dashi with shiitakes and pickled chilies. A tarte Tatin with buttery caramelized apples, kabocha crème caramel, and Maker's Mark ice cream is the best of both worlds. Their thorough wine selection is easy to navigate thanks to the polished staff, who'll also explain each element of the complex dishes. From the first bite of house-made bread to the final chocolates and cannele, a meal at La Folie is celebratory and gratifying.
