    We were a group of 4 people and the total including tips was $1080. Service was very slow. The table was uncomfortably narrow. We got two kinds wagyu beef, the quality didn’t live up to the price tag. Overall , the fillet steak was good but was not any better than the steak house that’s 80% cheaper.

    The steak and rest of the food arrived luke warm and quickly turned cold. the dining room was extremely cold, had to keep jacket on during the entire meal. the only saving grace of the meal was the service staff.

    Overall Underwhelming experience. Ambience Seated at the back of the restaurant. Noticed immediately a cold draught for those at the table. We informed our server, who acknowledged and knew that this was an existing issue. Noise levels were fine. Food / Value Ordered steaks for entrees (no starters). Took a long time ( >45 minutes) to arrive. Server apologised and acknowledged the long delay and explained that although the restaurant wasn’t full, they had a large party downstairs. Food when it did arrive was good, although value wise, none of the table thought that these steaks were worth $100-120 each (including tips of ~20%). Server apologised for the delay and gave us our desserts free of charge. Wine is significantly marked up and expensive. Service Attentive, courteous without being overbearing. Server happy to acknowledge our feedback and requests during the meal, in a timely manner.

    The steaks were good. Not great, but good. They are so overstaffed that it is annoying. Every 5-10 minutes or so a group of 3-4 people would descend on our table. The toilet should be an embarrassment. It is small, out of the way, not that clean and not of the quality that I'd expect from a restaurant of this price range.

    The Hitachi tasting menu was a great way to experience the strength and weaknesses of the cooking staff. The tartare and strip steak were the best courses. The desert and subsequent sweet courses were the worst . The cotton candy at the end of the meal was out of place for a serious food establishment. Our waiter was very efficient but sorely lacked any personality. The dining room was very noisy, even though it was not full, and was difficult to hear my dining partner

    Server, Anthony, was not connected. Server was not accommodating for my 5 year old favorite nephew who does not eat steak or fish and just wanted a little burger. Eventually the ask was honored by chef. As a foodie that frequent plush restaurants, It was disappointing to see the top manager of restaurant be select with the table guest he opted to check on. I’m a man of color and my brother is India LB and his wife is French, we were looked over -yet he made it a point to stop by Asian tables and one Anglo ( who we were meshed in between ) In short, definitely not the staff that served me at several diners and fundraiser for second harvest food bank back in the day (pre Covid ). Not likely that we will return JonPierre Carlo Ps … the two nice moments was the most gracious host as we entered … she was amazing and the sommelier was kind each time he stopped in to check on us.

    Great place to go to get wagyu steaks and delicious dishes cooked with wagyu fat. They treated us very well. We brought our own nice bottle of wine and they got it decanting before our table was even ready. While the corkage fee was a bit pricey, the level of care they showed my bottle was worth it. Our waiter was conscientious of our upcoming theater tickets and hurried the courses along while not compromising on quality. Overall, it was an excellent date night spot. I highly recommend it!

    First time at this chain restaurant. We had the SF Restaurant Week menu. The bavette was delicious and well-seasoned; the iceberg starter was well-cut but over dressed and simple in flavor profile; the tuna tartar was excellent but shamefully too small - think amuse bouche; the budina was chocolaty, but pedestrian. The service when entering was poor and unorganized. We almost left, as standing by the door was embarrassing and lacked fine-dining standards of any level. We appreciated the consistent, simultaneous serving observed at each table. The drinks were okay, but so overpriced it's a slap in the face to restaurant-goers- $25 and $35 dollars respectively. The bartenders are compentent, but this is not a cocktail bar. So, be careful with the quick fire upsell of the servers, they may translate your cocktail preference into something that yields greater profit to the restaurant, and less money in your wallet. Given the aforementioned experience, we see no reason to return again soon. Not with the award-winning cocktail bars and fine-dining experiences SF offers. Thank you.
