THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED La Terrasse Restaurant Review

: Laurent Katgely, well-known for his understated Chez Spencer, and Antoine Alliaume, owner of both Marina-favored Curbside Cafés, opened this restaurant. Though small and a bit wayward location-wise, the restaurant offers a unique Presidio atmosphere. The dining room designed by Michael Brennan has the soaring feel of a rough-hewn Tahoe lodge, and features a petite full bar and exhibition kitchen. The outdoor terrace, for which the restaurant is named, boasts clean, eucalyptus-rich Presidio air and spectacular views. Unfortunately, the restaurant has slipped in recent years. Lackluster cocktails and an uninspired shortlist of wines add nothing to the inconsistent brasserie menu and abrupt, dismissive service. Salade verte is spread with too much buttery dressing and pepper. Wide, fatty steak frites is also too peppery; haricots verts are overly salty. Nicely cooked carre d’agneau comes with a stack of scalloped potatoes and one, small confit of tomato---a bit forlorn for the price. The cheese platter is expensive but mostly generous and worthwhile.
