Frances San Francisco

After calling repeatedly through their listed number, I have been unable to reach Frances.

What is the deal with this?

  1. I've had the same problem and given up for now. I'll wait until the dead season in January to try again. The national press attention doesn't help much to cool off the buzz. Give it a while and the spotlight will be somewhere else and things will open up.

    1. If it makes you feel better, I lived 2/3rd of a block from it for 6 months and only managed to go once. It's small and very popular.

      1. If it makes you feel better, I had the same experience using the telephone.
        But I walked in on a Saturday night and was seated right away.
        Good if you got it like that but I'm me.
        What should certainly make you feel better is that I was underwhelmed and would
        be fine with never going again.

          Couldn't agree more. Despite the difficulty in getting a reservation which would suggest the place is quite good, the food turned out to be completely underwhelming.
