    The food was very fresh and delicious. Portion sizes are good, not too big not too small. I love the feel of the upstairs area, but it was a little chilly with the door open. Wait staff made good food and wine recommendations. Great place to go before the theater.

    the PiZZA alla SCAROLA was amazing and I should have ordered two as a main course. My AMATRiCiANA pasta was delicious but my friend thought the CARBONARA* was good but not great. The downstairs dining room was crowded and noisy and the server was very busy. I really like the food at 54Mint and Mint Plaza was a nice quiet place around Union Square.

    Attentive service, perfect al dente pasta, wonderful wine list, charming vibe .... we thoroughly enjoyed our evening and hope to return soon. A little gem... I highly recommend the amatriciana pasta dish. Other pastas were done extremely well...mushroom and also the carbonara. The desserts were great too...perfect panna cotta, great gelato/sorbet assortment, and of course, tiramisu.

    54 Mint was a mixed-bag experience. We went for Thanksgiving dinner. The salads were well-seasoned, with a nice variety of ingredients. I don't care for beets or arugula, but that's my issue. The beef with chimichurri was high-quality, well-cooked, and delicious! The only dessert - apple "pie" - was a waste of calories. It didn't taste like apples, or of anything, really.

    My daughter and me went there on thanksgiving. We had to wait so long for our food and while it was very tasty (no complaints there), the portions were ridiculously small. It's was not worth the $200 we spent. I had been there about 6 years ago and it was great. I don't know what happened.

    We love this restaurant before shows and it’s always good. But last night I think I had one of the best steaks I’ve ever had! The 12 oz ribeye was exquisite!! Perfectly seasoned. Perfectly cooked and as tasty as I’ve ever had! Cacio e Pepe was delish. And the radicchio salad so tasty. So so god!!!

    54 Mint is expensive for what it is. $19 cocktails. You have to pay for bread at the table. Ambiance was nice, service was fine, food was good. Overall, fine experience but just very expensive for what it was.

    The food was quite tasty, especially the truffle risotto and the steak. We did feel rushed by the waiter, which seemed peculiar as we were dropping a sizable about of money there. The restaurant also felt overpriced.

    We were a party of 2 and limited to 1.5 hours. Something that was not but should be highlighted when the guest is making the reservation and not in the very bottom of the confirmation notice. We ordered a salad to share for our starter and 2 sides to go with our main course. Both the salads and the sides came at the same time and as a result they were cold when the main course was delivered before we finished the starter. The server new nothing about the wines they offered, never asked if we wanted dessert, never offered boxes for the food we didn't have time to finish, brought the check and rushed us off! Horrible experience!!

    We booked a reservation for outside and when we got there they said they don't have heaters due to a SF Ordinance. I've seen other restaurants with heaters (still) so not sure about that. They ended up seating us at the bar, which was nicer than freezing. The pasta with clams was $33 which is VERY expensive for spaghetti. It was a little too spicy for my friend who couldn't even eat it all. I told them on open table and at the restaurant it was my friend's birthday and even a small scoop of ice cream was not complimentary. It would have been nice. I don't know that I would go again as there are many restaurants in the area to enjoy before theatre.

    Loved it, would go again! We were on the top floor which I'd love to rent for a party - great space, wonderfully put together, spare but intimate and comfortable. The food was terrific - we had iNSALATA di RADiCCHiO and SUPPLì al TELEFONO, then pasta all around: FETTUCCiNE ai FUNGHi, CACiO e PEPE, and AMATRiCiANA. All very good - the cacio e pepe might have been my favorite. Good wine recommendations, and I especially appreciated that when I asked for the music to be turned down, it was done right as I was standing at the bar making the request. The staff was very friendly (and some were actually Italian, which was fun). Also great espresso at the end. Standard SF pricing and portions and we were very happy and full when we left!

    Have eaten at 54. Mint twice. Both times have enjoyed the food. The first time we ate inside and had excellent service although if you are going to the theater give yourself at least 1hr45min. The second time we sat outside. The heaters did not really put off enough heat for me to be comfortable but the food was excellent.

    This is our 2nd visit to 54 Mint. All the staff was welcoming and attentive. We had the porchetta and fennel salad, the fish of the day (salmon) with a butternut squash puree and sauteed spinach and the fettuccine with wild mushrooms. I enjoyed the elderberry gimlet and we were too full for dessert. All was prepared and presented beautifully. They were mindful of our timeline, since we had theatre tickets, which we appreciated. Look forward to future visits.

    First time to this restaurant and we (spouse and 2 teenage kids) enjoyed our dinner. The ambiance was nice and it was quiet (early Sunday evening). Food was excellent—fresh salad, perfectly cooked octopus, and the pasta dishes were delicious. I do agree with one other review: the gimlet was served with a large square shaped ice cube dominating the glass with much less of the drink to enjoy—for the price of the drink, there should have been adequate drink/alcohol provided. All in all, nice place and good food. The wait staff was friendly, courteous, and attentive. We will not hesitate to return.
