Service is always slow for business lunches. That is my only complaint. The service is good otherwise and the food is delicious! The restaurant is super cool as well.

We loved it. It was new to us and I don’t know why we hadn’t ventured there before. Close to Westfield Center so recommend for a post shopping venue.

We started with the Cavalo Nero kale salad and the Suppli rice balls, both ample to share. For entrees we also shared the salmon with lentil ragu and the gnocci with slowed braised short ribs. The gnocci were puffy and delicious. The salmon we were served initially was undercooked. The restaurant manager promptly replaced the salmon dish and the second piece was cooked to perfection, some of the most tasty salmon we've eaten. Overall the food was outstanding. Our waitress, Martina was energetic and gave excellent service.
The restaurant has a good wine selection but prices seem to be more expensive than other restaurants in SF. They do have a Happy Hour from 4 - 5:30 where you can get a limited selection of wine, beer and cocktails for a little less. The restaurant upstairs filled up right around 5:30, people probably going to the theater. We'll definitely go back!

We shared 3 items - salad (the orange and fennel salad); lake superior smelt (too salty by 50%!! but otherwise excellent); and a simple pasta - very good. Only complaint - salty smelt appetizer. Good wine list, reasonable. Great ambiance.

Their food is so authentic with their homemade pasta that we thought we were back in Italy. Service attentive but not smoothering. I think the only downside is the prices a bit high- but still worth it! And noise level is a bit high. Bathroom really needs to be updated- it's not very clean. We've been many times before and will go again for a special night. Lovely cocktail menu as well and good suggestions for wines by the glass- they let you taste before you commit- that's nice.

The homemade pastas are delicious, as were the octopus starter and endive salad. Downstairs can be noisy, esp if large groups are seated there.

Lamb chops and pasta carbonara were disappointing. Desert and bread and wine were good. Noise level downstairs was far too loud. Service was very good. I would not go back anytime soon.

My friends and I all loved 54 Mint. Highly recommended. All around a great experience.

The food made me think I was back in Rome, but with much, much better service. Grazie 54 Mint!

54 Mint is a really great Italian restaurant. The food, wine and service are outstanding. We were so happy that we found this place while visiting San Francisco. I would recommend eating here if you are looking for some amazing Italian food. My only advice is to make sure you take a taxi or Uber. The neighborhood is full of homeless people and seemed a little unsafe to be walking around.

The food here is outstanding. Great flavors in every dish we had. Our favorites this time were the fava bean salad, a special that was only three simple ingredients but wowza was it good, and the cacio e pepe, a regular item that is SO delicious! The service is attentive and the wait staff are very knowledgeable. It's a bit loud for larger groups so I'd recommend for two, three or four people vs. bigger. Great spot for pre-theater dinner too!

Service was superb. Bread amazing. Don’t drink the tap water as it tasted funky but we’re from out of town so maybe the taste is normal for SF.

54 Mint has consistently excellent pasta, service and vibes. It is also just removed enough from the bustle of downtown to make it feel like a mini vacation to Rome. Lunch or dinner, you won’t be disappointed.

Wonderful food and service!! The staff was very attentive and was there to check in and refill drinks at the exact right times - not too often and not too little.
Highly recommend the cocktails!

Came for Valentine’s Day and was pretty disappointed. The atmosphere is nice, the staff is friendly, but we paid almost $300 for a fairly mediocre meal. I’d save yourself the trip!
