Music was inappropriate like fighting with the crowd noise although it could have been soothing to add to the atmosphere of the restaurant
Service was different from table to table although there was one menu
We celebrated Father’s Day as many....

We've been to MM several times and looked forward to tasting his new menu. It was fantastic! There were many choices and each were prepared with exacting precision to presentation and taste. I appreciated the options to add Caviar and Truffles as appropriate. If you do the wine pairing, the Reserve Pairing is definitely the way to go as they offer wines rarely available from places like Lebanon and Greece. Can't recommend this enough.

It wasn’t great. I loved he served but no. I wouldn’t go here again even for lunch. There are so many better restraints in the Bay for this price. Bougie ambiance not good food. Get the flow anything.

I was disappointed with the new Middle Eastern based menu. Some of the courses were not at all Middle Eastern and others not very imaginative. Service was excellent as usual. Michale Minna still hangs on to the old-fashioned white tablecloths and parades of waiters.

Very surprised at level of service. Arrived on time for reservation, were seated promptly. Server didn't offer beverages, didn't have answers to some basic menu questions. After checking in the kitchen, the server provided a description of an ingredient that was simply wrong. Once our order was placed, we waited more than an hour for starters. Finally caught the eye of the bus person -- who was constantly filling our water as we waited. Restaurant was only half full and tables that were seated after ours were being served. Our order was straight from the menu with no modifications. Food was good, albeit small portions as is usual for overly fine dining. Crumbs were wiped from half the table and forgotten on the other side before dessert menus were deposited. Coffee orders were mixed up - for simple regular and decaf coffee. Just oddly poor service - no warmth, no effort to engage the table, no effort to offer guidance or enhance the experience, and lacking in basics. Disappointing at the price point.

Amazing food and the presentation equally so. My only negative is the wine prices are out of line with the quality. Felt gouged on the wine but overall, an amazing experience. Felt the meal was dinner and a “show.”

Michael Mina recently tweaked his menu to be more middle-eastern influenced, playing on his Egyptian roots with nouveau twists on traditional spice blends. I booked way in advance, so we felt lucky that this was the first week of the new menu and Michael Mina was there cooking that night. He came out and introduced himself, and was wonderfully friendly. The menu is pure culinary delight. Every course on the tasting menu was delicious and flavorful. We tried ranking the dishes and it was tough! The service is impeccable, as you'd expect in a restaurant of this caliber. Even the cutlery and dishes served with each course were perfect. It was a night to remember, and I'd recommend Michael Mina's namesake restaurant in a heartbeat for a memorable occasion.

So underwhelming, and very overpriced as well. MM bills itself as high-end food and dining experience, with a 5-course tasting menu. Diners choose one for each course out of 3-4 choices. Our dinner group of 4 had a wide variety of selections, but with one exception(the asparagus appetizer), each dish fell either short, or very short. Basically, while the presentation was very good, the food was not...it either was not prepared appropriately, or more often, the mix of flavours just didn't work. One serving was just plain bad. This was a consistent theme throughout the meal, including dessert. Extremely disappointing considering the bill for a 4-top ran $1300(with 2 btls of wine in the $100-200 range). I would not recommend a visit.

Took the only reservation available which was at 9pm. The Hostess called my cell and said the kitchen closes at 9pm, and so I need to be seated by 9pm or else my reservation was canceled. Seemed odd to offer a time slot at the time the kitchen closes and to be harassed by the hostess; she was even more unpleasant in person. However, the service staffs’ and sommelier’s knowledge were impressive, with professional unobtrusive service and incredible, beautifully presented cuisine.

Michael MIna has a tradition of fine dining experiences in my experience and some of the flavors and disches continue to be sublime. I have dined at the Michael Mina restaurant in San Franscisco since its days as Aqua abd well before he opened Michael Mina's at the Belaggio in Las Vegas. I was both surprised and dissapointed to see that the a la carte menu no longer exigts. Instead, they ofered a multi-course menu with little room for substitution. They also offered 2 wine parings. The service was shockingly poor; it was slow and improved ONLY after leaving the tale, identifying the manager, and pointing out that we had waited for more than 35 minutes (he did check this and seemed distrubed that I had not waited longer - oh really?). To me this is unacceptable at a restaurant with a history of quality and service as outstanding as MIchael Mina's in San Francisco. Based on this I advise proceeding with caution, expect long wait times to be served, and limited menu options. On the positive side, the quality of the food varied from excelletn to outstanding and the wine pairings were spot on.

Thanks for making our anniversary dinner so special. First, the bartender who hand stuffed blue cheese into olives for my husband’s martini. Next, the lovely anniversary card on our table. And, all of the amazing dishes and wines that followed in the tasting menu. Our servers that night could not have been better.

There was no doubt that Michael Mina - SF is deserving of their Michelin Star. The food and service exceeded our expectations. Their wine list is superb and I would recommend the 2012 Altagracia Red which is on the lower end of the price list but extremely good. The overall price is not for the faint of heart but in this case you get what you pay for. This was a 5 star experience.

The service was impeccable and the food was incredible, well beyond our expectations. I'm surprised this place only has a single Michelin Star. I've eaten in some of the best restaurants in the world and this one just slid its way into my top 10 fine dining experiences. If you're looking for high-end on short notice, you might be interested to know that you're still able to get same-day or next-day reservations here. For now.

Most remarkable was the obscene price for the food and wine. Food was well prepared, but nothing served was especially interesting (at any price). Wine markup was more than 300%. Service was condescending and pushy. A la carte is offered, and the waitress tried to push us away by warning us of the cost. She mentioned cost more than once. She had the audacity to instruct my wife on the intended use of an item on the table (which was unnecessary to the food being served). In the Lobster Pot Pie, they leave the lobster meat in the shell. Explanation? To flavor the broth! Preposterous!
