The chic Fifth Floor restaurant acts as a culinary and visual bridge connecting the Bay area and executive chef Laurent Manrique’s native Southwestern France. The menu is both refreshingly modern and faultlessly traditional, with one dish having a provenance traced to King Henry IV’s table. Fifth Floor’s décor enhances the experience of regional pastiche, with a color scheme that evokes the landscape of both regions. Cool ocean blues mingle with sandy ochres and wine reds, colors that embody not only the surrounding Bay area, but simultaneously transport the diner to Southern France. An evening at Fifth Floor is an exploration in the complexities of our global community, the uniqueness of regional differences and the surprising parallels connecting us all.

Not worth the $$- food was horrible 9/07
Service was excellent but it doesn't get better. Ambiance was so so. A little dark, sat next to another table of 2 where you can overhear the other couple's conversation. My friend and I had the sample menu with 10 courses. Originally wanted to go to Gary Danko's but could not get a reservation in less than 2 days. It was very easy to get a table last minute. It was my send off dinner before going to Europe for a year. Food was below what I expected. One course was burnt, the fire alarm went off mid dinner. The flavors just did not gel together, something was very off for 5/10 of the dishes. Best part was dessert, thank God for that at least! I was misinformed by Zagat. I've had tastier food at a taco stand in Tijuana. Ouch but it's true. For the money you spend, I cannot recommend the food. Citron in Oakland or Chez Panisse are what I think of as food worthy of their reputation.
