Had a wonderful dinner at Folie Douce the service was great and the food amazing. So many flavors with every bite from the dinner salad to the main course. It is close to the college and as far as I am concerned a hidden gem.

City quality in a coast location with an excellent, very affordable wine list that focuses on local offerings. Excellent service and I love the half size ordering options. I'm in the restaurant biz and would definitely return.

Nestled into a hillside street this charming restaurant serves excellent dishes made from organic products. Staff is attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Vegetarian ravioli so tasty. Chef knows how to create flavor combinations. California wines. A good experience.
