Every item of food was truly unique. The explanation by the staff was very clear and welcome
Amazing. We’ll be back!
I’m still blown away by the culinary experience and Service. That the Benu team provides. The menu was beyond delightful. Loved the Asian influence and all the delicacies. Pictures speak for itself.
We went for our anniversary. Very beautiful dishes and tasty as well. I don’t like raw food so Benu is the right type of restaurant for me. Most of dishes are from China and Korea. If you like Asian food or want to try Asian food, then you will like it
Worth it. It's a month of daycare/preschool for one kiddo. But I like good food/booze, so does my husband, and I appreciated the multicultural, equal gender reppin that night.
Most incredible restaurant on the West Coast, worth every penny and the entire trip!
Outstanding quality of food, drinks, presentation, and service.
An upscale dining experience great for a date night. The food and service were excellent, but be prepared to spend some serious money.
Each dish looked like a masterpiece. The taste of the food divine. The minimalist decor soothes the senses and awakens imagination. Excellent service.
Repeat visit to this exceptional restaurant. Interesting dishes, wonderful presentation, excellent wine pairing. Overall, an extraordinary experience.
A new found appreciation for ingredients I grew up with. A fascinating and well thought out twist on Korean and Chinese cuisine. One of the most perfect meals I’ve had. Every bite was a dream and the portions were perfect. Benu is an institution and a must visit if you’re in SF!
My favourite dining experience to date. We went for our anniversary and the service was beyond impeccable. The flavours were inventive and yet still so delicious. Such a special dining experience!
Each dish, brought one by one to the table at a comfortable rate, was amazing. It felt like we were dining in our own home as there was continual interaction with the kindly, professional wait staff. They were eager to answer questions and seemed to enjoy how much we were enjoying the experience. I loved the presentation of each delicacy in a special bowl or on a plate made just for that offering. The only flaw to our evening, one which was not under the control of the waitstaff was the loud talking from a nearby table of business people who could not have actually been eating, or at least not really savoring what was being brought to them. The food itself was totally worth the price, which is admittedly not for the faint of heart. You cannot get these dishes anywhere else and the ingredients are rare or difficult to source. The wine offerings were similarly stunning and so were the prices for wines by the glass, which added substantially to our final bill. It was a special event for us, so we didn't mind the loud conversation nearby us nor the final bill-- we were prepared for that . It was an epic evening.
It’s really an amazing restaurant which deserved 3 stars Michelin
Hands down the very best service you will ever receive, and the food was euphoric.
Really enjoyed the meal. Loved the Asian influences.
have good service
I have twice dined at Benu!! The cuisine and the staff are quite amazing! Also, I really appreciated that the tasting menu had quite a few new additions between my 1st visit and most recent visit!
Great Meal as the last time. Great food and service from start to the desserts. Every time will be back to SF will visit Benu. All best for all team great job.
Sublime restaurant experience.
Delicious. Innovative flavor profiles, consistent and excellent execution, thoughtful and perfectly balanced wine pairings
The service was knowledgeable, professionally enthusiastic, and unobtrusive. Loved our main wait person and the somm was excellent!
Outstanding ! Never disappointed! The food is exquisite, innovative, yet with a respect to the spirit of traditional Chinese and Asian gastronomy. The staff is A+.
Creative and delicious food in a wonderfully sedate setting.
Pretentious & largely tasteless food served by smug, arrogant staff.
Amazing place to have one of the best nights of your life! Special Mention to the wine pairing, it was simply perfect for the tasting menu, which is an artwork from Corey. My most sincerely congratulations for him!
Every course was a tremendous experience of flavors and textures in another different level. Also the service was spectacular. Every person knows what they are talking about and they make you feel really nice during the whole experience.
Really really happy for being there.
It was very good, but... the most expensive three-star restaurant in the Bay Area when you factor in service + tax. Just under a grand for two with minimal wine. And quality-wise other three-star establishments are better in my book.
It is THE best restaurant in San Francisco!! The menu is constantly changing, highly innovative, the service staff is exceptional and glad to see you are playing vinyl records; the chef's choices of music are as excellent as the menu.
Best meal I’ve ever had in my life. A very close second was my experience at French Laundry. I may be biased towards the spectacular interpretations of asian flavors, but I had an amazing experience from start to finish. Thank you so much for the thoughtful accommodations to our dietary restrictions!! I hope to eat here again soon!
An exquisite dining experience with delicious and beautifully prepared dishes. The wine pairing made the experience even more special.
Benu was an awesome experience. The food was incredible, and the service was the best.
Fourth visit. Not nearly as good as a year or two ago. Not as much creativity in flavor combinations as previously, rather more so in appearance...perhaps it’s the Instagram effect on business. Quality of ingredients is still very high and everything demonstrated technical perfection. Expected a three-hour meal, turned out to be four hours. Service couldn’t have been better, absolute best, warm, thoughtful, and knowledgeable.
Definitely a worthy 3 star experience. Highly recommended.
Reserved a table for my husband birthday dinner.. and we had a great experience! He was very pleased. We are both vegetarians and we loved every course.
The best meal of my life! You must do the wine pairing as well. Simply delicious, beautiful, and creative! Love love loved!
Great dining experience. Staff were very attentive.
It was pricey, but worth the experience. Enjoyed the detailed dishes and the special ingredients that were used to give some of the typical Korean and Chinese dishes a twist.
They didn’t ask why we were there so there was special celebration for us. Good service. Creative and delicious food. A little pricey. Wish the venue looked prettier. It’s not a good-looking space but seat was comfortable enough.
Had the most amazing food and wine pairing experience for my 35th bday
