Fodor's Review

Forget popcorn. In this hip, loftlike space "dinner and a movie" become one joyous event. Classic films are projected on a wall in a large inner courtyard while you're served perfectly shucked oysters on the half shell, warm brandade, house-cured sardines, bavette steak, or seafood stew. Avid filmgoers should keep in mind that it's really more about dining than movie watching here. Kids aren't forgotten, with a special meal of celery and carrot sticks, pasta with butter and cheese, and two scoops of ice cream. The weekend brunch brings throngs of people fighting for a spot on the patio for some of the city's best egg dishes and Bloody Marys.

Foreign Cinema Review

Best meal we had during a recent long weekend in San Francisco. We had a relaxed, delicious, creative brunch on Sunday. Sat in the courtyard and our server made us feel like the only ones in the place.
