Michael Mina has put together an excellent tasting menu. The attention to detail in every course was impressive, and the service was outstanding.
Very nice, appreciate the attention to detail. The food was great.
Fantastic experience. Food and service were top notch.
Great spot for an express lunch $50. Can't go wrong
For an incredible dining experience, Michael Minna's is always at the top of our list.
Food was absolutely amazing! Portions were perfect and actually larger then we had expected. The atmosphere was very intimate and cozy and the service was VERY good. We had such a wonderful experience and found this to be such a great way to spend our last night in San Francisco. Loved it!
Nicely appointed restaurant. Food presentation was excellent but food quality and taste was somewhat ordinary. We had a party of 8 and the noise level in the general dining area was too loud which makes it difficult to hear your guests nor the hosts & waiters
The food was excellent but the service was lacking. We were “abandoned” a couple of times by our waiters and there was significant confusion about which dishes go to which person.
Service was excellent! Food was fabulous and well thought out. Wine pairings were outstanding!
Phenomenal meal in a beautiful setting with wonderful service.
Service could be better given it is a Michelin star restaurant.
We had a fabulous, celebratory (our 7th anniversary) lunch. Michael Mina is an inspired chef with great creativity and thoughtful touches throughout. The flavor combinations, amazingly fresh ingredients, and variety of mezes -- plus entreées and dessert were truly extraordinary. We especially appreciated the note acknowledging our anniversary and the "extra" dessert. The wine list is also exceptional. We look forward to returning for dinner!
The food is outstanding. The portions are very small. Our party of four ordered the tasting menu with wine parings. We had to order an additional course and we all still left hungry. The wine parings were uneventful. All European and mostly white, somewhat disappointing considering its located next to Napa and Sonoma and we were looking forward to some delicious reds. Other than the amazing the food the experience was fair.
Every bit of dining experience at Michael Mina was superb. Food
Très bon restaurant, très beau restaurant, équipe polie et attentionnée. Le menu est excellent, les quantités servies sont normales. Rien à dire je recommande ce restaurant
Beautiful restaurant, excellent service, lovely ambiance, domed dishes were excellent and a couple were slightly disappointing. Would definitely recommend and go back.
Feels like MM has taken a step back. Their usual exceptional service was off a bit. I was a little disappointed. They pushed the price fix hard.
Couldn't have been better. Staff was lovely (& loved their diversity) & the service was impeccable, while still friendly & unstuffy. The addition of the Middle Eastern spices was subtle, but took the experience up a notch in terms of interest. The wine pairings were interesting and spot-on, although we would have welcomed slightly more generous pours (altho' the waitstaff snuck in the occasional extra pour). Expensive, but top quality all around: absolutely lovely way to celebrate our anniversary (which everyone noted at every possible occasion, much to our delight).
The food was some of THE best I’ve ever had.
The wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful.
It was like dining in one of Europe’s fine restaurants.
It was truly a memorable lunch. We will return.
The food was amazing
Lovely place. Well conceived and executed menu. The "spice adventure" was a fabulous experience. Maybe the best bar in San Francisco. Unusual and perfectly made cocktails. One complaint: the air conditioning vents blow directly down on all diners seated next to the wall. It was cold and the food cooled quickly as well.
Our experience was top notch. Service, Sommelier, chef, all were excellent. I had the best Wagyu beef I’ve ever eaten. Run, don’t walk to Michael Mina!
Took clients to dinner and had some issues with food temperatures and certain dietary restrictions. One client was pregnant and asked specifically to avoid anything unpasteurized or undercooked. She was served a quail egg on top of her salad that was poached along with a medium rare steak. We had to send both items back. What was most frustrating was we asked and clarified when we ordered her restrictions.. The food was good but nothing was spectacular. I can’t say I would go back even with other clients. It was an expensive meal and we checked the box on coming.
Superb! Henry was outstanding! The staff, from the back staff to the manager and sommelier, was quick to respond to any and all of our needs. ALL were educated in Mina's cuisine and concepts, which I have never experienced in any restaurant in the past. So much attention was paid to every detail. The food was delicious! Our favorite was the lobster in the lemon grass infused coconut cream. There was a touch too much spice in the tuna tartare that the ahi was lost in it, but that was only one dish. The newest dessert addition, the musk melon, was excellent and refreshing. Thank you! Will definitely highly recommend this restaurant.
Was a great lunch meal and we have a voucher for the lunch express, which even without it, was incredible value for money- the staff were personable without being over the top and cared deeply about the experience each guest was having. The flavors were thoughtful and well places and the portions were perfect so by the end of the meal we were full without being stuffed.
Such a special restaurant for special occasions. Food is spectacular. Served perfectly with great service.
Great restaurant! Phenomenal food and outstanding service. Really special place. Cesare is the man!
A great dining experience. The service from the somm was a bit slow at times, but the courses were outstanding and was a dramatic improvement from my last visit. They've definitely stepped up their game.
The food was incredible - food you would expect in a similar establishment but a twist with the unique spices.
Made my wife's birthday a really special day. The hand written card the cake and spice vial at the end. Everything was really nice and very happy surprises.
The change to a Mediterranee-inspired 5-course tasting menu was an unwelcome surprised. Classic dishes are now gone. Drink service was unacceptably slow.
It was impossible to count how many small dishes and bowls we were served, all filled with one savory, flavorful and beautifully executed and plated taste after another. Each flavor, from the seasoned cheese that came with the bread to the vanilla yogurt and sorbet served at the end was one taste treat after the other. Each of us loved every single bite, all full of flavor inspired by chef Mina’s childhood. I just love za’atar! The service was the best combination of progressional and friendly. We felt like the whole staff was genuinely happy to be of service to the guests. Loved it all.
I would recommend it only if you have enough time. Great food, both beautiful to the eye and wonderful to the palate. However, their Express Lunch was not express enough. I have informed the restaurant ahead of time that we will be time constraint because it was a business lunch, and they told me they should be able to get everything out in one hour; however, by the time the entree came out we only had 20 min left, and we had to leave the restaurant without dessert. We waited 5 to 10 min between appetizer and entree. They should time the course so that 5-10 min to settle down and decide on the entree, 15 min appetizer, 15 min entree, and 15 min dessert. I am very disappointed that I didn't even get to see the dessert for the price that we paid.
Disappointing for a highly rated restaurant. Some of the food was excellent and fresh and some was blah and boring. The best was the mezze on the prix fixe menu. We found the service inconsistent varying between almost obsequiously attentive and total neglect. What a pity.
I can't thank the staff and chef at Michael Mina enough! Thank you! The service and food was incredible/beautiful! We unfortunately had to leave the restaurant early before the meal was finished and the staff and chef accommodated (which I would assume is not typical) with carry out. It was incredible food and atmosphere and I look forward going back to complete the meal in its entirety.
Long time fan of Michael Mina’s, but never had the opportunity to dine in flagship San Francisco. Service and food was excellent. I came in curious because I have eaten in the Las Vegas location a few times a while back. And wasn’t sure how the new menu would translate. Nothing to worry about. The flavors and food were spectacular!!
Every course lovingly served and explained.
What a relaxing and enjoyable evening.
Vacation Dinner one of the best
A bit pricey, but that’s expected. Food is unique, but not necessarily the most delicious vs. other places. Service was excellent. Nice for a special occasion.
