[Castro] Dinner at Frances

I've been wanting to check Frances out and finally got a decent timed reservation. Please join me in a family-style dinner so we can try a little of everything. We will be ordering meat, seafood, gluten, sugar, dairy (did I leave anything out?) so please consider if you have any dietary restrictions.


Recently renovated, the daily changing menu from Chef Melissa Perello focuses on local ingredients. Yelpers also love the desserts so we must save room to see for ourselves!

Insider's Tips on RSVP

$1 RSVP to join our group. If the organizer cancels or reschedules so you cannot attend, a refund can be requested. Our events typically have long waiting lists, so no shows and late cancellations made within 24 hours of the event are recorded as demerits. Individuals with demerits may be moved from "Attending" to "Waiting" for future events.
