Best French Restaurant 

Rue Saint Jacques

If you want to feel like you've spent the evening in a corner of the 6e arrondissement instead of Nob Hill, head for Rue Saint Jacques, where everything from the soundtrack (French techno interspersed with Edith Piaf) to the extensive menu (16 appetizers and more than a dozen main courses, plus additional nightly specials) of cuisine both old-fashioned (cassoulet, coq au vin, steak frites) and a little more nouvelle (brandade of scallops, oyster seviche, monkfish in beurre rouge) bespeaks la belle France. The chef has a personal style: He's not afraid of rich — his terrine of foie gras and foie gras en brioche are very good — and he likes to set this richness off against differing textures and sharp, bright flavors.
