Acquerello has received countless awards, including two Michelin stars since 2014 and one Michelin star since the first-ever 2007 Bay Area guide. Our extensive Wine list is the recipient of the Wine Spectator Grand Award in 2012-present.
Our waiter was beyond excellent, service was impeccable, he was kind and so helpful. Food was fabulous. There was a douchbag millennial I could hear clearly across the room who wouldn’t shut up for three hours taking about women negatively, and how great he was he was with two other guys who seemed mildly embarrassed. But I can’t fault aquarello for that. 😉 I know it’s delicate balance but maybe in the future someone could tell a guy like that to curb it. Thank you we did have a wonderful time.
I sent my parents here for their 30th wedding anniversary. They had nothing but wonderful and beautiful things to say about the food, wine, and service.
Even the coordinating of handling the bill a ahead of time and having a note ready for their table was a smooth process.
Pricey but very nice for a special occasion. Service was wonderful and sommelier recommended a great bottle in our price range.
Food is excellent. Desserts were quite mediocre. Excellent wine pairing The service could be better...more smiles please?
One of the great restaurants of San Francisco. The two stars are well deserved.
Amazing dining experience in every way.
Wonderful restaurant! Service and knowledgeable staff makes this a great experience. It is pricey, but if you are looking for 5 Star dinning and a truly memorable experience, this is the place.
Amazing food and service. Couldn’t think of a better place to spend my birthday.
It was quite a disappointment starting with the unfriendly hostess at the door. Then the ravioli was under cooked and spinach creste di Galli with dry and hard skin. We were so surprised at how average and mundane the food were and didn’t understand how they got their two stars.
Silver lining, our server and sommelier were great, but a server with grey hair was rude. The experience was so unpleasant we will not go back there again.
Amazing meal.Even better staff who do everything to accommodate your enjoyment of the abounding and delicious food.
The service at Acquerello is the best you will find in San Francisco. The staff are polite, truly care about their guests, and professional. The sommelier, David, is knowledgeable and very helpful. The food is impeccable. My fiance and I plan to make this an annual treat!
All around fabulous. Every visit is special.
Very deserving of its Michelin stars. Elegant, gracious, delicious, beautiful.... true food as art. Perfect destination for a romantic and memorable evening.
Thanks for making my 29th birthday so wonderful!
Exquisitely prepared dishes. The staff is attentive, but not obtrusive. Dinner is a wonderful dining experience.
Everything was way more than we expected, every single person in that place went above and beyond to make our experience unique, thank you so much
Nice restaurant for a special occasion. Service was very attentive and meal was very good, but it was missing something that I can’t put my finger on. Not the same feeling I get in other Michellin Star restaurants in San Francisco.
I can’t say enough about this place. Service is impeccable. Probably the best I’ve ever had. They pay attention to every detail and make the whole experience extremely special. The food is incredible. You can’t go wrong with any dish. This place is probably one of my top 5 favorite restaurants in the city. Don’t hesitate. Just go!
We went to celebrate our Anniversary and we had an amazing experience! Everything was perfect!
one of the best amazing experience, love the place, service, food, alllll
Best restaurant in the Bay Area. My go-to for VERY special occasions. Chef Suzette and her entire staff is so impressive. The experience is just as impressive as the food. Extremely well executed on every level. And I can just stare at the beautiful wood ceiling for hours. Stunning experience all around.
Very accommodating for special diets. You will not be disappointed
Everything was great. I think the menu was good but not great. I’m sure it was due to fact I’m picky .
Tasting an special restaurant at San Francisco. Awesome!
We had a fabulous waiter. The food is fabulous and a lovely setting
Beautiful Italian restaurant in the neighborhood. Something of quality. Thank you.
Exceptional food. Exceptional presentation. Marvelous service and care during the meal as always. This place never disappoints.
The Acquerello team makes you feel so special. Absolutely worth it.
We went for my boyfriend's birthday and had a fantastic time. The service and ambiance were warm, and the food was creative and intriguing while still providing the comfort that I expect from Italian food.
A bit disappointed with main courses
This was one of the best meals I ever had. Started with two amuse bouche. Both were great. Then a crazy celery root and parmesan Budino that I thought was great and might be the best thing of the evening. Never had anything like that. Then, had the confit duck egg, grilled chicory, cauliflower, truffle balsamic. Then I thought this would be the best dish of the evening. But I gave up and just let the deliciousness wash over me. King Crab, ridged pasta in foie gras, the most tender wage beef I ever had, a tort filled with truffled cheese, and so on. It was a really good meal. Good pace. Desserts were spot on. And the service. It was really good. Like a dance when they served and picked up the dishes. Choreographed. And the waiters actually know the dishes and could answer questions. Wine was good and the sommelier knew his tuff. The wine was good, but did not always match what I expected. Good to try new things. Some were spot on to me. Others were lost on the dish and you could not taste.
I wish I had the money to go often, but alas, I do not. One time shot for a special night out. Worth it.
Sublime, a gracious entrance to a hushed space. The colors uplifting and warm. The gilded ceiling beams invites one to dine, to enjoy, to indulge. Every bite delicious and unique, enjoy!
Birthday! Exceptional food and service! Well deserved stars!
Amazing food, go for the tasting menu if you want a gastronomic extravaganza, but also have 3.5 hours to spare. Worth every penny :)
Great birthday celebration, food was amazing!!
We love this place. Loved it the first time and loved it each time since. I believe the food is very delicious and creative. The service is extraordinary and very personal. I have food allergies and I did call ahead to let them know, and the chef and staff were very attentive to that. Yes, it’s not inexpensive, but for me the experience is worth it.
Could not be much better. A real SF gem! Food is exquisite in both it's taste and presentation. The Julia Morgan dining room is beautiful and tasteful. And I love it that jackets are still required ( ties optional ).
The ambiance doesn’t live up to expectations of the location and fails to take advantage of it. Entree was served late and cold.
A truly exquisite culinary experience is always what one receives at this fantastic establishment. The best time to visit is during white truffle season, where the very best white truffles are imported direct from Italy and not spared on any dish. The tasting menu, Including several special treats from the chef, was 15 courses of food. Add a bottle or two of the finest Italian grapes from the superb wine list and you might just have the best meal of your life. Or, At the very least, the best meal in recent memory. The service is friendly and attentive. The ambience is classy and utterly romantic. Certainly, a must try.
