first i’m going to start and say it was valentine’s day. they ran out of menu items by 5:30 which is pretty unacceptable considering the day. it was extremely cold out side and they had heaters which did a poor job at cooling open air. every single business on the street had tents to prepare for potential rain however 54 mint did not. it was sprinkling which turned into heavier rain. we ended up leaving and walked out because of how unprepared they were. the couple next to us had been waiting on an item for what sounded like a very long time. 54 mint is typically an exceptional restaurant, and i was pretty surprised by how unprepared they were.

We made reservations and went to the restaurant. When we got there we were put in a seat in the corner outside when it was very cold. The hostess told us that there has been a lot of other reservations. We asked if they could put one of the heaters by us and they said no it was for the other people with reservations. So we left. There was definitely not so many people that we could not about another seat.
Fortunately we went to a restaurant about a block down and have an amazing meal and were treated with respect. I can’t really speak on their food but I would definitely not recommend this place.

Food and service was not good. Bread was stale, lasagne tasted old and overcooked, and the gnocchi's were rubbery. The service was not attentive and there were not a lot of dinners. I would not recommend and will not come back. The location in SF does not compare as the other location it is tasty.

The soup had no flavor, had to add a ton of pepper, the lasagna could best be compared to cat food and my wife's pasta/eggplant was flavorless as well. Incredibly disappointing.

The most authentic Italian food my husband and I have ever had. My husband had the Gnocchi so light and fluffy. I had the truffle ravioli amazing! This was not our first visit and will definitely not be our last! Anytime I have family or friends visiting I always bring them here. Everyone I bring absolutely loves it!

If you want a basic night-out Walnut Creek's overdeveloped, overcrowded and trying-too-hard-to-be-trendy downtown then you have no shortage of options.

If you would like an authentic, top quality trattoria experience in an intimate, out-of-the way, romantic setting with charming and attentive staff and a great wine selection then get to 54 Mint.

I booked a table "inside" on opentable, but when we arrived that was not true and opentable didn't have any option to resolve the issue.

Outside seating is beautiful, staff is great, not to loud or busy and I get why. This place is extremely overpriced for mediocre pizza and pasta. They don’t have a big menu or lots of options and the food was overall a disappointment. I will not be back.

The servers were so polite and apologized for being shorthanded. Some had called out so they thought they were not being attentive enough. I told her not to worry, I was enjoying a warm and sunny Sunday afternoon. We had the only table in the shade so we thoroughly enjoyed the bread and the Avocado salad and a pizza. I got so full we even had leftover pizza for later that day.

I definitely do recommend Mint 54 to my friends and acquaintances. It is my favorite Walnut Creek restaurant. My husband and I ventured out last Friday evening for the first time since the pandemic hit and enjoyed a wonderful meal celebrating our anniversary. Mint 54 is on atop my list of "happy-making" places in town. Give it a try; you won't regret it!

It’s outdoor dining right now due to Covid so not really a full review for some categories. We done there at least once a month or every 6 weeks. The food is still pretty damn spot on for most dishes. Unfortunately their service has really deteriorated from 3 years ago 2 years ago and now. It’s been a downhill slide for 3 years now which is unfortunate. More attention to detail used to be paid but not so much anymore. Lost a bit of its appeal to be honest.

We've eaten here many times in the past and have ordered takeout a several times since the pandemic started. This was our first time eating on the pandemic patio and it was a great experience. The street is pretty quiet and the spacing between tables made us feel safe. The food was as wonderfull as ever. We had the Brocoletti brussel sprouts, Cavatelli pasta dish and the Calabressi pizza, all delicious.

Covid has put a damper on eating "out", but 54 Mint in Walnut Creek put the "fun" back. Food, drink, service were all perfect. the pizza "bones" appetizer was a great stroke of genius.

Yes, it had outdoor seating but out of 4 items ordered, the only one that was good was the brussel sprouts. Pasta not good, pizza-meh, and pricey for that. Service was very good. But overall not worth my time or money.

Our reservation was for 8 pm on a Friday night. At 8:15 they closed the kitchen. We could order only two pizzas and nothing else. They showed up with the check without even telling us that the kitchen was closed. We had to leave. All the other restaurants were open. Usually restaurants announce that the kitchen is closing!
