So fun to see Margot and Jonathan's wedding from last September at Foreign Cinema featured on bridestory over the weekend! http://bit.ly/1EJVahu
A Sweet, Intimate Wedding in San Francisco - Bridestory blog. This sweet couple went back to where it first started by having their intimate wedding held at their first date location. It is a brilliant choice, because their wedding is romantic and deeply meaningful. Take a look at the pictures of this San Francisco wedding taken by Gladys Jem.

Went there alone so I sat at the bar. People there are very chilled and friendly. When it comes to food, you have to be adventurous to enjoy it, because even their fried chicken is everything but traditional.

The atmosphere is amazing; it's a beautiful restaurant. The service was great and very professional. Overall the food was okay; wasn't blown away, but enjoyed my meal. I recommend checking it out simply to enjoy the ambiance.

My favorite spot for a fancy date night is in F.C.'s courtyard after sunset when the movie has started. The flicker of the screen and not-too-loud drive in style speakers are like rose colored glasses for a romantic evening. The ambiance is more of the star than the food to me - I somehow find the starters more flavorful and inspired than the mains, but I love coming nonetheless.

What a treat! Foreign Cinema is a romantic spot, great for a date night and surprisingly quiet. I would highly recommend sitting outside. The food is very inventive with a daily rotating menu. I especially enjoyed the duck and pork chop, but you really cannot go wrong. Be sure to save room for the dessert because the pot au chocolat is amazing!

I would like to start off saying the table had mixed reviews on the food - my mother would have given this a 4. Let's start with the pro's: The restaurant is beautiful and feels incredibly relaxing and bright- you feel like you are outside. The Bloody Mary is outstanding - one of the better ones that I have had. The oyster selection is great; a bit pricy, but well worth it. We also got the Warm Goat Cheese appetizer and it was very good. Now, the cons: service is very slow. It took quite a while to get both rounds of drinks we ordered. I got the tuna salad sandwich, I did not enjoy the seasoning on it; however, my sister had half of it and thought it was very tasty. The fries that came with the dish had clearly been sitting for a while and were cold and under seasoned. My brother has the ham and gruyère sandwich with bechamel - can't believe I am saying this based on the ingredients, but it lacked flavor and depth. Overall, it was pretty average, but decently priced. The ambiance is incredible and did have mixed reviews. I think I would recommend for someone to give a try - possibly they just had a miss in our table.

Space is really cool, but had a horrible experience with one of the servers. He was extremely rude, not helpful, and very snobby. Also, none of our entrées came out at the same time (at least 5 mins apart). Very disappointed with this restaurant - we will not be visiting again.

Classic movies projected onto an outdoor brick wall , string lighting, great food (brunch and dinner), and good service makes for a wonderful night. Foreign Cinema is one of those quintessential SF restaurants that you have to try at least once. Having been there three times, I can say that it's one of my favorite restaurants in this city. Dinners are romantic and brunches are fun. They have great cocktails and you really can't go wrong with any dish. I especially enjoyed the Sticky Bun and the Robust Persian Omelette. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that eats and likes food period.

Foreign Cinema is a place where you will always enjoy every dish served here. I remember when they first opened in the Mission District and they continue to serve outstanding dishes, oysters, delicious brunch menu and amazing dinner options. Recently went back for a very late brunch and ordered half crab along with a side egg and dangerously delicious bacon and topped it off with a great cocktail! Always great ambiance, service and location!
