“New meaning to dinner and a movie”
Open since 1999, Foreign Cinema restaurant has garnered local, national and international acclaim as a quintessentially San Francisco dining experience. We offer a daily changing California/Mediterranean-inspired menu in an industrial chic setting located in the heart of the bustling Mission district. Dinner is served nightly as well as weekend brunch both Saturday and Sunday. Foreign and independent films are screened in our covered outdoor courtyard. Seating is available indoors fireside as well as upstairs in our semi-private mezzanine overlooking the dining room. Guests may enjoy cocktails and our complete menu from the main bar or on the patio outside. Modernism West, an art gallery in collaboration with Martin Muller and Modernism Inc, is open to the public most nights and is an ideal space for private dining. After dinner drinks with rotating DJ’s completes the evening in our adjacent bar, Laszlo.
If you like great food, and you like great movies, and you want to mix the two, this is one of the best places to do it. Great vibe, huge, open seating area, and loads of foreign and independent films playing every night.
Go here for brunch. This place is awesome.
This is a real special restaurant featuring outdoor seating with foreign movies playing through old fashioned drive-in movie speakers.and projected on the wall above. Or you can sit inside next to the fire in a beautifully appointed dining room. The service is excellent and the food is even better. For example, a tender pork chop over an inch thick on a bed of risotto with succulent vegetthis is a great place to bring your sweetheart for a special event. This is a great place to bring your sweetheart for a special event. Highly recommended.
Part of SF's brunch honor guard, thanks to fresh-baked pastries (including an infamous seasonal Pop-Tart-like pastry) and a killer raw bar. Oh, and that gorgeous atrium-like patio, of course.
