Fleur de Lys

Fleur de Lys, San Francisco. The original 75-seat restaurant occupies an unobtrusive windowless mid-block storefront on Sutter Street near Jones in the Tenderloin- Lower Nob Hill. 
Nob Hill is one of the most romantic parts of the city; our evening started out at the Nob Hill Ritz Carlton, where we were staying. After drinks we walked over to Fleur de Lys to have a Special Birthday dinner. We loved it, very romantic and exciting. We couldn’t wait to taste Chef Keller’s food. 
Fleur de Lys Interior
Fleur de Lys has been ranked as one of the top 25 restaurants in the United States by Food & Wine magazine.The fixed-price cuisine is classic French, with innovative dishes using French techniques based on Keller's Alsatian  background. To suit local tastes, the restaurant cooks with reduced fat, offers vegetarian and no-fat dinners, and features seasonal California ingredients. 
Filet Mignon and Lobster with Mac and Cheese
The food, especially the grand marnier souffle was exceptional, and service was wonderful. As we were here for a birthday dinner, the service went above and beyond. We were greeted several times, our seat was nice and cozy. Ambiance was perfect. It was one of the best dining experiences that we've had.  
Salmon with Potato Souffle
One picks the number of prix fixe courses and we opted for 4 courses each. For the price and service, we thought that this was above the typical 1 michelin star restaurant. Fleur de Lys steps it up in terms of ambiance and service. 
Fleur Burger Dessert
We had filet mignon with lobster truffled mac & cheese and loved how the truffled mac & cheese tasted together. It's genius how it was served in brioche, and delicious when eaten together. We also had the salmon dish which was perfectly created and prepared. Delicious.
Gran Marnier Souffle
We ended the meal with a signature Fleur Burger dessert in addition to the candy cart and the souffle we ordered. Perfect ending. 
This restaurant exceeded our expectations and the service was outstanding. The ambience was perfect for a romantic dinner, and we couldn't ask for anything more. 
Highly recommended!
