Quince ReviewThe service was outstanding from beginning to finish. The food was amazing! Must try!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExquisite food, elegant setting!With a lovely, quiet dining room and some of the best food I've had in San Francisco, this is definitely a place for that special treat dinner! Service was smooth, efficient, pleasant and professional. The prix fix four course menu has 3-4 choices in each category and was simply delectable! Sometimes in fine dining restaurants, the hors d'oeuvres and appetizers outshine the main courses for creativity and flavor. Not so here. My tai snapper with a tangle of crab and its sour apricot and lemon verbena overtones was exquisite. Plus the wonderful selection of amuses to start. Portions are small so that you can fully appreciate each course even up to the dessert. This was a memorable meal in so many ways and I look forward to returning.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEarly Mother's DayVisited for an early Mother's Day dinner. Everything was wonderful. From being greeted at the door with a Happy Mother's Day to the always fantastic food, it was definitely a memorable occasion.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place but you'll leave hungryFor a great place to eat with an interesting wine list and fabulous service, try Quince. You will spend a bunch and won't eat a lot but you'll leave happy. It's what I would say is an experience restaurant. You have to do it and say you've been there - just know where the local pizza place so you can sate your appetite.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMQuince was just way too formal.Quince was just way too formal. Although the food was very. Good, it was not fun. All servers looked the same
; same outfits, hairdos, etc. way too stuffy. Everyone walked around like they were robots.
No one who worked there looked like they were enjoying their time. Plus, one of the entrees
Had an $18 supplement because it had Dungeness crab in it but there were about 4 slivers of the crab
In the dish? It was insulting. Although the food and ambiance were very good, I don't think I would
Go back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery aspect was exceptionalEvery aspect was exceptional ! You get what you pay for.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals of my life.Amazing food presented by an equally amazing server in Quang.
I have dinned all over the world, at many famous restaurants. This experience will be one of the best for the rest of my life!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and quality, but...Food quality and the service are fantastic/top notch, However, the portion size is incredibly small, even for a fine dining establishment. Suckling pig entree is 2 very thin silver dollar-sized chops. This is not comparable to any other fine dining restaurant we have been to. We did not leave hungry, but for the money, the portion sizes were disappointing5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccable ServiceFantastic service, Incredible food! The tasting menu was a foodie's dream.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty, butExcellent food that is.beautifully prepared. Overall, the restaurant is overly formal and stuffy. It is not a fun restaurant. It is a serious restaurant with no interaction between the guests and ownership. It will be many years before we would return.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAn absolutely divine mealAn absolutely divine meal from start to finish. Everything about the food was incredible. The ambiance was just a touch uptight for San Francisco, but that's apparently the energy they are going for. It wasn't distracting or detrimental, just noticeable. Service was very attentive and perfectly choreographed. Our primary server, for lack of a better title was just a bit awkward, seemed a little uncomfortable engaging with us on a level outside of the server rhetoric he had been "programmed" with. Very knowledgeable and kind but a little robotic.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMQuinceFabulous food,, unlike anywhere in SF.
New restaurant is sophisticated while remaining comfortable.
The service was attentive and friendly.
Expensive, but worth it, especially for a special occasion.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Quince and we were very impressed. The service was first class and the food wonderful. We will return.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid Restaurant/ Very properDefinitely what you expect from a very fine dining establishment. Similar to Gary Danko and Michael Minna. So nice that it is a little stuffy and proper so if you are looking for more casual go to Cotogna their sister restaurant. Also two prix fix menus $90/pp and $140/pp so be prepared for that.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best I've had in San Fran.The best I've had in San Fran.

But for $95, the service was impeccable. The courses were ample and delicious. Garganelle pasta with duck was rich and unctuous. The Gnocchi ricotta on black truffle reduction was tasty. The suckling pig, cote de boeuf and John Dory main courses were all beautifully presented and delicious. Even their homemade cocktails were fun and flavorful.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDining at Quince was a veryDining at Quince was a very positive experience overall. There is some street parking available, and the offer valet parking. The resturant decor and ambience are pleasing. Service there was excellent in every way. My wife and I opted for the 4-course tasting menu. They also have a 9-(I believe)course tasting menu. The prices were reasonable. Though both tasting menus weren't chock full of items high on my personal list of favortes, the menu was creative, and the food was expertly prepared and presented. The suckling pig was outstanding! We did not opt for the wine pairing, but that is offered on both menus. If planning on being in the area, and looking for somewhere to dine, I would not hesitate to return. I'll try the larger tasting menu4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is obvious that the chefIt is obvious that the chef took great care with every bite of food. We appreciated the little "treats" that came throughout the meal in addition to the ordered fare. The service was exceptional and well organized - definitely worth the price and then some.
Hats off to the entire staff for a thoroughly wonderful experience - we felt pampered and full by the end of dinner.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed our experience.Really enjoyed our experience. Our meal and service impeccable.

We were celebrating our anniversary and the hostess and every waiter wished us happy anniversary. They even had personalized menus wishing us happy anniversary. Service was incredible. Food was to die for. My husband is an extremely talented fine-dining chef. We were both blown away by the creativity and quality of the food. It's pricy but worth it for a special evening! Our bill was $500 for 2 four course meals with $90 in extra charges for the lobster, crab risotto and duck. We each had 2 glasses of nice wine.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMQuince deserves Best Service awardWe celebrated my son's birthday at Quince last week and were so very pleased.
Over the years I have dined on the memorable food of Bocuse, Troisgros, Soltner,
Passot, Keller...and know a wonderful experience when it happens...and it happened
at Quince. We enjoyed it all...but were more than slightly impressed with the professional
service and the incredibly generous customer service policies!
They had known in advance that one of us was gluten sensitive and they
had baked special gluten free breads...and I had noticed on an old menu that Dover Sole had been offered...it was not on their current menu, but they ordered it in specially for us! I was pleased that when I ordered a half glass of a second wine that it was perfectly accepta3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNot happy about the wine recommendeNot happy about the wine recommended to us. over priced for what it taste like3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing 4 course meal at QuinceAmazing dinner fit for foodies - each course seamlessly prepared with impeccable service3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFlawless execution again!Strongly moving to the number one restaurant in San Francisco. We have only been 3 times now over the course of 2 months, but if the flawless execution continues as it has, and the Perfect level of service performed by the staff (which truly has been outstanding) in every case, this restaurant will take over the spot of the Best Restaurant in San Francisco very soon.3/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe LOVED Quince!

Although the prices are high, $95 prix fix with additions for some options, the value is there. Lovely seafood, good pork and beef, and one of the best cheese carts in the city. Good wine choices. One of the best things about it is that the service is top notch, friendly as well as polished.1/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest place for special occasionsMy wife and I decided to celebrate our 25th Anniversary at Quince and - despite being quite discerning foodies - we were elated by the quality of the food, its presentation and the impeccable service.
