Tucked away not to far from the financial district is this great little restuarant. The dark wooden tables, dim lighting and warm friendly staff made this an enjoyable evening. The appetizers: white garbanzo bean and calamari were flavorful, the crab salad, and mushroom pizza were all good. The entrees: chicken in a tomato olive and celery exploded with so much flavor, the lamb chops were exquisite paired with fennel sausage and in wine reduction. Sea Bass was not impressive and the steak was over cooked. Definitely would go back again.

I have been to Piperade several times.

The acclaimed octopus appetizer is a stew and sometimes the octopus is grilled then stewed and other times a rubbery mess.

The Pork Cheek dish is awful. Overdone shoe leather.

They run out of ingredients and dishes so don't expect what's on the menu is available.

Service, when they are busy for dinner, the busman is just that whether you're finished or not they will take it away

Very disturbing experience. A 38 dollar bottle of wine was charged as 85 dollars on the bill. They tried to convince us that this was correct and only after repeated assertions did they acknowledge that their calculation was WRONG. No apologies, no attempts to compensate such an embarrassing mistake. I recommend that you avoid this restaurant, but if you really want to go, check your bill carefully before you offer your credit card.

An authentic French atmosphere and the Head Chef, Gerard is very hands on and was happy to discuss the excellent wine menu and to serve us with our choice. Delicious food with something to suit most tastes (I am vegetarian).

The Basque-inspired food here was excellent, and the atmosphere is quiet/refined with prompt and friendly service. My husband (he's taken foodie courses at CIA) was in awe of the rack of lamb meal he choose. It was a great place for us to dine and unwind after traveling that day to San Francisco. It's close to Embarcadero and Market Street area hotels. It appears to attractive business travelers and business meetings as the banquet room was busy the Monday night we were there. I think the owner waited on our table and he was friendly and unrushed with our service. Soothing and tranquil would be a good way to describe it.
