Welcome to Renee's Place
Since 1996, Renee's Place has been a Bay Area favorite for light, fresh Szechuan and Hunan cuisine served in an inviting environment.
“A simple dining room makes serene surroundings that are a perfect atmosphere for a quiet dinner and some great Chinese food. Muted walls, soft carpet and a peaceful fountain in the entryway add to the effect. Try the salt-and-pepper spareribs, unless you're on a date -- they're hard to eat gracefully, but worth the struggle.”
— Michael Bauer, Robin Davis, San Francisco Chronicle (read review)
Renee's Place features the finest available ingredients: seasonal, organically-farmed produce from local suppliers such as Lundberg Family Farms; humanely and sustainably raised chicken, pork, beef and lamb from local providers, including Prather Ranch and Mary's Chickens; and select condiments, such as raw, organic cane sugar and Himalayan pink salt.
“Aside from stylish decor, what sets Renee's apart is the approach to food. No mystery meats here -- [Mary's Chicken] and [Prather Ranch] meats are used exclusively, and whenever available, organic local produce goes into the stir- fries and vegetable entrees, such as beautiful, still-purple pieces of eggplant stir-fried with garlic chile sauce …
“Sauces have balanced flavor and are never thick and starchy. Chicken with black bean sauce … is chock-full of green onions, crispy bamboo shoots and red and green peppers and tastes agreeably light. Even the fried Marco Polo prawns … are light and near greaseless, their fruity sweetness highlighted by honey-glazed pecans.”
