L'Ardoise

French in The Castro & Noe Valley

For date night with an all-local crowd, this storefront neighborhood charmer on a leafy side street is perfectly placed for some strolling hand-in-hand after dining on classic French-bistro fare, including perfect steak-frites. Dim lighting adds sex appeal, but the room gets noisy – especially at weekends – when the cheek-by-jowl tables fill. Make reservations.
