Michelin-starred MICHAEL MINA is the crowning jewel that captures the core of Michael's philosophy: bold yet balanced flavors achieved through a combination of acidity, sweetness, spice and richness. At the helm, Executive Chef Raj Dixit achieves these bold, balanced flavors in a cuisine, which draws upon global influences, showcasing the highest quality authentic and seasonal ingredients.

The 5-course tasting menu invites guests to explore a dynamic expression of Chef Michael Mina’s vast culinary influences while also providing options within each course for the guest to define their ultimate dining experience. The tasting menu is offered for dinner only at $145 per person, with vegetarian options and supplements at an additional cost. A paired down 'a la carte' dinner menu is available at the bar. Lunch is served in the dining room featuring an à la carte menu and at the bar featuring an array of seasonal small plates, as well as salads.

The whole experience was incredible. The famous lobster pot pie is one of the best things you will ever have. Service is truly exceptional. Pricey, but you can't complain when even the restroom smells like a spa inside.

This was my first time at Michael Mina. I was totally impressed with the ambiance and the great service. What took me over the top was the excellent presentation and flavors we all got from the wonderful dishes. The only problem was choosing what to eat within the five course menu! My son is a sous chef at a Michelin restaurant in SF and he has put this restaurant on the top of his list!

We spent NYE in SF which included our 2nd visit to the restaurant. The early seating included a 5 course tasting menu only, with optional wine pairing. The fluke terradito was fabulous, as well as the scallops, maine lobster and syrah wagyu short rib. Wine selections were paired very well except for the Syrah. They accommodated my request to replace the Syrah. Service was excellent and staff was very friendly.

SMALL DETAILS COUNT!
Prix Fixe meal was very good, beautifully presented and obviously carefully orchestrated in serve ware that was inspired by art. Clearly a large investment was made in serve ware (not votive on the table).
Service left some to be desired - One of the party could not have Lobster and told the wait staff that prior to dinner. She acknowledged that, saying she would consult with chef. She NEVER RETURNED to make an offering of an alternative course! Rather, just served a lentil dish while others received the lobster course.
The Washroom was not well attended -sinks were very dirty(not just wet) , backside of doors were worn and chipped and most shocking was the flower arrangements in the nooks were actually dead and crisp. White Peonies were shriveled, white Asiatic lilies brown on edges, I would've believed that for the New Year's eve service (not your ordinary night) Fresh flowers would have been presented. Our party was part of the first seating, can only imagine what happened later in the evening for $50 more.
There are many restaurants in the San Francisco area that present extraordinary food with attention to all the details that elevate the entire experience beyond good.
Might a Michelin reviewer have reneged on the star?

We chose Chef's Tasting with Wine Pairing, and the choice was very excellent. I had wonderful memory with my husband at Micheal's Mina.
