The best croquettes we've had. Without traveling to Italy - the best.
Gnocchi was light with great ragu.

Had to edit (add) to this outside reservation twice as our celebration grew in size. The restaurant was so amazing and accommodating. THE FOOD! We spent most of our time praising the preparations of our meals. It was amazing evening made even more amazing by the staff. CLEARLY, they care. And they now have a set of new regulars for as long as they're around. Shoutouts to the waitstaff and chef(s) for a fantastic culinary experience.

We have eaten at 54 Mint several times. This was by far the worst experience. We ordered several appetizers which were pretty good. We ordered four pastas none of which came out hot. The worst was the carbonara which was room temperature at best.
I think they are suffering from a shortage in the kitchen.
Our plan is to wait several months before a return visit.

The service was really lacking on this trip; they brought me a completely different dish from what I ordered because the pasta type I had ordered wasn’t available in a vegetarian sauce. They didn’t come back and tell us that one of the items we had ordered wasn’t available and were weirdly insistent on us eating the dish the way they wanted us to. Eg I asked for parmesan for my pasta and they insisted I try my pasta without it even though they have it and offer it for other pasta. It was really unpleasant.

Excellent Italian cuisine. Best risotto I have ever eaten. Outdoor patio needed new heat lamps as some of them blew a ton of smoke, and there is no other lighting that gives it a nice ambiance (string lights were not turned on and there is no table lighting or other decoration at all). These are minor things that are easy to fix however! The restaurant is worth it for the authentic, expertly prepared Italian food. There were problems with our order, but our server apologized profusely for the mix-ups (delivering our order to the wrong table) and corrected them immediately. That is all you can ask for - someone who admits mistakes and makes things right. Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant! Great food, very friendly staff.

We had a great experience at 54 Mint on our last night in San Francisco. The service was excellent and attentive - our server was clearly passionate about food and wine and helped us select from the menu. The food was delicious, as were the drinks. Get the tiramisu for dessert!

I loved the ambience and the mood of the restaurant. The food however, was not that great. We got the suppli and the texture of the rice was very hard. It came with three pieces and two of them was undercook, the rice was still very hard.

We got the tonnarelli and it was salty. Maybe that is how it supposed to taste?

For our secondi, we got coda alla vaccinara and it was also okay.

Overall disappointed with the food experience. Maybe we just came at a bad night but we were hoping for better food since it has such a good reputation.

The hostess and waiter were extremely warm and friendly. We sat downstairs which had a more intimate vibe to it. I had the elderflower gimlet which was delightful and had a great flavor that wasn’t overpowering. For dinner, I got the cacio e Pepe and my husband got the carbonara. My husband summed our meals perfectly when he said it was everything we wanted and more. We topped off dinner with the tiramisu, which was heavenly. If we ever find ourselves in SF again, we will definitely be coming back here.

Our family of four enjoyed an early dinner here. Because it was early, there were only a couple of tables occupied. Antonio took good care of us, suggesting some not-to-miss dishes. Everything was tasty. The prices were slightly higher than we expected but overall a solid choice and we would consider visiting again!

Great food... true Italian, but with a modern creative twist. Everything we ordered was outstanding; octopus app, asparagus pea salad, see urchin pasta, and halibut in tomato sauce. Everything was 10 out of 10. And the cappuccino and tiramisu were top notch. Service was ok, but the hostess was a bit lost... took her way too long to get us to the table that was open for 20 minutes. Maybe she was knew... but a heat place and I’d certainly recommend it and go again when I’m in town. Give it a try. Enjoy.

Food was great, better than expected. We shared a really delicious steak and an asparagus risotto. Service was very attentive and the inside decor was pretty. If you’re driving there, consider arriving a bit earlier. Parking near is limited and can fill up quickly, but there’s a garage near by.

Great food. Nice owner. Don't sit outside. Unfortunately, too many homeless issues surrounding the Mint building take away from a great experience. NOT the owners' fault, of course. Eat inside and enjoy the amazing Italian cuisine.

The food was amazing. Both entrees and dessert. The cocktails were also amazing. But. It took forever to get service, they were clearly understaffed. Also, open table allowed me to specify that I wanted an indoor table, but when I got there we were seated outside next to a broken heat lamp and it was freezing. I also was hoping for a little bday love for my stepdaughter. I specify on open table that it’s a special event and who in my party we were celebrating and the restaurant didn’t acknowledge it at all.

The kitchen staff should be applauded for their work. The server was also so professional but clearly stretched too thin. Also the music was up so loud that we literally couldn’t carry on a conversation.

They are short of heat lamps as they kept moving them to accommodate complainers. Reservations for 7pm was seated at 7:40. Lamb was way over cooked although prepared correctly otherwise. Gnocchi was done right but sauce flavorless. Tripe excellent but Suppli was nothing more than three deep fried cheese balls with no sauce. Didn't even bother to get dessert. As for staff, all had great personalities but they were slow to perform. Overall, there is something here but bad execution in its entirety. I won't be back.

Mediocre at best. A lot of trash immediately around the entrance. Disorganized and the food (tuna) was over cooked! I like to eat out when I believe the restaurant can do a better job than I can at home. This was definitely not the case here.
