Our reservation books are open for 60 calendar days and can be made on our website or over the phone. If you do not see your preferred time or party size available online, it is unfortunately not available. The largest party we can typically accommodate is four people. We have very limited seating at our front table for parties of 5 and 6 people. Reservations for parties of 5 and 6 can be made exclusively over the phone at 415-621-3870. 


Walk ins:

We accept walk-ins at our ten-seat counter on a first-come, first serve basis.


Private Events:

Frances offers exclusive use of our dining room for large parties. We can accommodate as many as 30 people for a seated dinner and up to 50 for a standing reception. If you'd like to schedule an event, please contact Samantha


Cancellation Policy:

We require a credit card to reserve all tables in the restaurant. There is a 48-hour cancellation policy for each reservation. Should you need to cancel within 48 hours of your reservation, we will attempt to reseat the table. If we are not able to rebook the reservation, a charge of $25 per person will be applied to the card on file and the amount will be applied as a credit to your next visit.
