My partner and I celebrated our first anniversary at Villon. From the minute we arrived, our experience was over the top special. The ambiance was really lovely. We ordered the lamb shoulder table side for two, and it did not disappoint! My favorite part was the lamb and my partner loved the smoked polenta. Multiple members of the staff wishes us a happy anniversary and they provided a “gift from the kitchen” of a starter and dessert to accompany our entree and drinks. We would highly recommend this dining experience!

We had an exceptionally good dinner. Our party ordered the lamb chops, tender and delicious. Halibut that was cooked just right. The gnocchi was soft and richly sauced. The filo wrapped Brie and pears was a nice appetizer. Our server, Han, was professional, efficient and attentive. We had a wonderful dinner made complete by an excellent piece of Key Lime pie. Perhaps the best I’ve tasted.

Truly my favorite place in the city! I’m European and go back there pretty quickly, and this place can compete and outcompete with my favorite Parisian bistros.

What a wonderful meal! From start to finish each course was tres magnifique! Some highlights were the amuse bouche mint pea soup, the meat and cheese selection for our charcuterie, coq au vin and the salmon special! The poached meringue dessert was light and beautiful!! We will definitely return the next time we are in town!

We stopped by for an early dinner after seeing and smelling a Porchetta being grilled on a rotisserie outside. We sat inside and the server honored a Happy Hour menu for the outdoor patio seating that we had looked at before walking in. Our "dinner" consisted of beef tartare, oysters, and duck parfait which were all excellent. We would go back for a proper full meal again.

I have not been to Mathilde in some time...It did not disappoint. It is small, it is in the SOMA district so not a Flashy. a Bistro in the truest sense of the word. I selected Mathilde and I was confident my guests would love it...they did. It was a Wednesday evening, the restaurant was not busy...our server was just a delight...so helpful with wine selections, menu explanations...everything you would want from a server who plainly wanted you to have a good time. Starters would wonderful and generous, two of us had the Rack of Lamb Special...exceptional...Mathilde offers a space for an intimate dinner or a fun group...I would not say it is expensive, it is fairly priced for the quality of the food. Give it a try!
