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.
We had a terrific time.
The service and food were excellent.
We had the classic wine pairing and were not disappointed.
I would do it again the next time I am in San Francisco.
His food is always innovative and delicious!
Friendly attentive service. We had the tasting lunch menu. Every course was delicious. Wine list selection was excellent. Will visit again if in San Fran again in future.
Amazing experience. Would go again
Great place, very consistently excellebt
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.
Fantastic dinner! Food was excellent, service was perfect. I highly highly recommend this restaurant
Birthday. The 5 course lunch w splits of a white and a red wine was nicely presented and delicious.
Beautifully presented, decadent food and wine, though one of my courses was over salted and wait staff was not as sharp as I expected. I would go again but I preferred Aqua.
3 of the 7 guests ordered the Lobster Pot Pie. All said the lobster was tough.
Tried the chef's 8 course with wine tasting. The service, food, wine, everything was absolutely top notch. One of the best dinners ever.
The service was amazing, but I’m sorry to say that it was not the level I thought it was going to be taking on consideration what you pay, the food was ok but nothing special
Disappointing. The Chef Tasting used to be very good.
Now just so so.
Big disappointment. Had heard about this restaurant for years as an upscale big-deal foodie place. It was not. Very formulaic. Felt more like a business than a restaurant. We had the lunch tasting menu and when we left my husband suggested we go someplace to get something to eat.
It was an exceptional dinning experience. Easily in the top 10 all time.
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!
Solid food and service. Dessert menu was too limited. Beer menu too limited. Wine was solid.
Used TravelZoo voucher for lunch. It was well worth the experience of fine dining with great service. The five course lunch was excellent. Each course brought to table was explained and the pace of service was good. All the food was very tasty and presented beautifully and portions were sufficient. We enjoyed lunch with wine.
A big disappointment. Touted as a Michelin 1 star the star has faded. We had the 5 course tasting menu. With most dishes the flavors were bland the scallops and the Shabu shabu were exceptions. We ordered the beef tenderloin rare. It looked rear when served but clearly been cooked earlier then the slices reheated on one side in a pan. The result was mostly well done. On a Saturday night the place was half full. That should have been a sign. Not recommended.
food and service was great, only complaint is the $29!!!! glass (1/2 glass) of "house" wine-Arnot-Roberts 2015 Chardonnay that retails at $39/bottle. I understand a markup but $29!!!! very hard to justify. My own fault for ordering without checking the price and I expected price range of $15-$20/glass and was shocked when I got the check.
Beyond any expectation I had previously imagined for the finest of dining. Every aspect completely top notch. Above all, the service, specifically our waiter David. He quite possibly could be one of the best in the industry, period. Well done to all of the Mina family. Cheers!
My family and I went there for our anniversary celebration. It was wonderful! The service was outstanding and the food was even better than that! Highly recommend this restaurant!
Top notch! You know you are blessed when you are able to experience a completely unique, and absolutely exquisite meal that is truly exceptional.
The beige decor from that aqua dump has got to go, but the service and flavor follows only after Acquarello and Coi---- and before everyone else --so far. Caviar parfait and Lobster main are too tasty to share...
(Dates: the best two-top is under the tree in back. [Boulevard dates better--try table 30 -or the one next to it.])
Service was excellent in the beginning, but then that kind of forget about us especially when we didn't order any alcohol drinks.
This is perfect it is a dining dream come true ! Tablecloths . A competent welcoming staff with knowledge of food and an inspired chef 👨🍳 👩🍳
Phenomenal 5-course pre fixe lunch--oyster, soup, tuna tartar, filet & chocolate mouse log. The food is fabulous; presented wonderfully and my server (Elizabeth) might be the best I've ever had. Perfect lunch--felt like a queen.
Excellent food and service. Value added using the travelzoo voucher. Great experience.
My husband and I came here for our anniversary and although they did write a nice happy anniversary card, that was the highlight of our meal. We came here because there was a travelzoo deal offering a 5 course lunch for $50. Seems like a good deal but the food was underwhelming. The first course was more like an amuse bouche and the tartare we had was very bland. Definitely needed salt or something. It feels like they forgot to season it. The duck we had was very chewy and unpleasant to eat. Our meal also was served very slowly. There was a big table next to us who got seated after and they finished everything before we got our dessert. We will not be returning
I visited this restaurant on the recommendation of the GM from Bardot in Las Vegas (which was amazing).
I had high expectations coming in and was not disappointed. The service was excellent without being intrusive. I had the chefs tasting menu and each course blew me away.
One of the best dinning experiences I’ve had in years and the best dinning experience ever at a One Michelin Star restaurant.
Continue to enjoy MM. Was very quiet on Sunday evening and food was great. By comparison we felt food was slightly better than a nearby * that we had dined at teh week before at 2x the price. In fairness at MM we had a standard 5 course and at * their standard 8 course. Myf theory on food price is that with every additional star, price increases by 50%
Thank you for providing a memorable evening! Food and service were outstanding!
Every course we had was beautifully presented and very flavorful.
The duck and beef dishes were excellent.
Service was quite good (but certainly expected in a place like this).
This is our second time dining here. Definitely recommend for those special occasions.
I find with avant garde restaurants there is a tendency to overdue the blending of new with old. The plates always looked attractive but on two items on their 5 course menu I found that whatever the new was overwhelmed the old. My cote de boeuf came out barely warm.
On a rare date with my husband, and while it is not inexpensive, it was worth every penny. We even sprung for The caviar course which was spectacular. The food was delicious and creative, there was a desert custard made with mushrooms that was the perfect amount of sweet over a cardamom cake, and the service was friendly, efficient and never overbearing.
We had the five course meal and it was really delicious. My favorite was the razor clam chowder and the scallops three ways. Each course was an unique experience. Plan on dinner taking a few hours and costing easily $500 for two people. However, it is well worth the price for a special occassion.
Hands down the most incredible meal we have ever had. Michael Mina's staff was impeccably trained to guide you through both the menus and wine list with ease. Can't wait for an excuse to go back and enjoy the food again.
