About Chez Marius


Chez Marius is owned by Laurent Legendre, whose passion for great food and wine has resulted in a fine reputation in his adopted San Francisco.

Born and raised in Paris, Laurent studied at the internationally acclaimed Ecole Hoteliere and worked at top Parisian restaurants La Tour d'argent, l'Elysee Le Notre, l'Arpege and Amphycles.

While on vacation in the United States in 1996, he fell in love with San Francisco and decided to make it his home. Since then he opened Clementine Restaurant in 1998, Bistro Clement in 2001, Bistro St Germain in 2009, Sel & Vin in 2011, his most recent success Le P'tit Laurent open in July 2007 and Chez Marius open in December 2016.


Chez Marius is influenced by a typical French Bistro Cusine with a Provencal influence. It is also focused on epitomizing everything one would expect of an authentic French dining experience; mouthwatering dishes and impeccable service in a cozy bistro atmosphere. The large selection of wine and beer is very attracting.


Most of all, the beautiful garden patio with a fire pit for kids to roast some marshmallows or the Bistro table where you can sit to have lunch or dinner under the lemon tree closed to the warm lamp

make your dinner experience a plus.


Dogs are welcome on the patio.

Come and enjoy our warm and friendly French atmosphere at Chez Marius in this beautiful Noe Valley neighborhood.
