We enjoyed the dinner. The staff was extremely accommodating and pleasant. The food from the standard chef’s menu was outstanding! If I were to pick out a critique, it would be that since my wife didn’t eat red meat, her substitutions (mostly vegetarian) could have been better. But that’s nit-picking. :)

Keep up the great work at Coi!

COI has been on my to try list for a few years now and I'm glad I finally made it. It was AMAZING. All dishes were not only tasty but also prepared with great care and presentation in mind. The staff were friendly, respectful, and personable. They made sure we were comfortable. When we arrived 20 minutes early, they sat us down immediately.

It's really hard to pick one favorite dish... If I had to pick one, it would be the sturgeon. Oh wait.. no, the hazelnut cream with the caviar and hen egg. wait... yeah I can't pick just one favorite. They're all good!

Definitely will come back for a special occasion!

Disappointing is the word; definitely does not feel like a Michelin 3-star restaurant. Food ok but I was not amazed as I have been on all the Michelin restaurants I have been. the following day I went to Benu and that was certainly worth it. I would not recommend this restaurant

Presentation 5/5:
I booked this place on a Wednesday evening. The lighting and conversation level was much more relaxed than the other Michelin Star restaurants I've been too. The tables, utensils, furniture, and even the decorations on the wall were all so simple, modern, yet had a touch of poise and elegance, as if Gianni Versace breathed on this place.

Customer Service 5/5:
I'm so used to sliding into my seat that I was surprised when the waiters/waitresses were pulling out my chair and tucked the chair in when I adjusted myself accordingly. Never had that before and for the few hours I was here, I truly was feeling Upper Echelon. Though when that check came, that feeling drained out the window...

Anyway, great recommendations. Water cup was never empty. Wine was always refilled before the last sip. Paired the perfect beer for the remaining dishes on the menu. And even offered to provide additional desserts, which we declined because we were already full.

When they saw us get up for the bathroom, they even hurried to open the doors for us. Don't get that everyday.

Meal 6/5:
Coi provides an incredible tasting menu. I have had everything on the menu before, separately but their take on the dishes was phenomenal.

My favorites:
GeoDuck - caramelized duck cream, clams, and green onions

Portion size is similar to teacup level so you really do need to enjoy this one.

Halzenut - hen egg, parsnip, caramelized salsify, and puffed rice

This one is on par as far as taste level but man, the halzenuts to the salsify, to the rice, to the cream they pour over everything was to die for.

Beef - black trumpet with fermented pepper toffee
The beef is imitation wagyu, it was that delicious and the sauce was amazing. Tasted like a $10,000 oyster sauce

Overall, had an amazing experience. This place is somewhere you take someone, or even yourself, to be pampered. It is pricy ($250 a person) and there is an automatic 20% gratuity.

This was as disappointing of a fine dining experience. as you can get for Michelin three-star restaurant. I don't know what happened to Coi! Perhaps the loss of their chef. The courses were uninspired, single note in flavors, and simply disappointing. There are many other choices in San Francisco, suggest you try Atelier Crenn for the kind of brilliant cuisine expected from Michelin restaurant. Don't be disappointed? As we were.

We frequent Michelin restaurants and were excited to experience Coi as it recently earned 3 Michelin stars. We learned the chef that earned the 3 stars is not the current chef at Coi as he was selected to compete in Bocuse d'Or and left Coi. The new chef's tasting did not seem to measure up to what we are accustomed with 3 star Michelin restaurants. However, we felt the restaurant was a solid 2 star Michelin restaurant. My wife and I enjoyed the deserts and the lamb was the best either of us have ever had. My favorite dish was the mustard brassica. I think what hindered the evening most was not experiencing the tasting that got Coi 3 stars.

Coi recently earned 3 Michelin Stars and I was really excited to try the experience. Having been to Alinea in Chicago, Coi failed to deliver the 3 Michelin Star standard. Overall, it's really a 2 Michelin Star. The courses were okay. I barely had one bite on 2 of the dishes served as it was not good ( Beet and Coat Cheese Tart, New Olive Oil.) Most dishes were salty. On top of that, corkage fees were $40 the first bottle and $60 the second - pretty steep.

As a Michelin 3 star restaurant it has a high standard to meet. Coi does so. All aspects of food and service were outstanding. The kitchen was more than willing to make adjustments for a number of dietary restrictions and preferences, and the substitutes were every bit as good as the primary menu items.

COI is rated by Michelin three stars. Then everything need to be an extraordinary experience. Obviously it's a great restaurant, but not worth 3 stars at the moment. The Wine Pairing was one of the best I have had, but food wise a disappointment.

 (Los Angeles)·Dined on November 25, 2017

We chose Coi based on the delicious looking pervious menu. However, the menu we got was changed and totally not seafood based what we love so much. Caviar, crab soup(included with a big piece of crab skeleton in mine) and over cooked octopus were not the seafood delicates we expected. Instead, a course of carrots, cauliflower/broccoli/olive oil and one course with red beets were served, which looked amazing btw. Honestly, we had a great time but we expected far much more of the seafood expierence of the restaurant. The wine card is amazing, a big plus. So all together we paid 1200 for the 2 of us and did not got the expierence we dreamed of. Additionally, the automatic service costs of 20% are fine(167$) however it’s nice to notice in front so the tip on top would be a choice.

This is a very cozy restaurant. The chair looks very normal but very comfortable. Although, they got tons of waiters and waitresses, I still felt very relax by just sitting there. There were many dishes that you can taste various and multiple layers of flavors within one bite.

The goat cheese with beets was truly amazing. Taste like some yogurt, it has to pair with the beet, the rammish taste is just to the point and the crispy thing on the top can balance the texture.

My wife got substitute of the beef tender/crab soup which was a mushroom one. It was so brilliant, much better than the crab soup that I got. So many flavors just in one spoon, the mushroom flavor was... I couldn’t find a word for it.

Other dishes were okay, the matsutake was sweet and delicious. What else? Couldn’t really recall. But the main dish was lamb, which was not okay for me. Too normal and flat. The abalone was not tender, don’t really like how they handle it.

I’ve now dined here three times and every time I come away a bit underwhelmed. With the third star I had assumed they upped their game, but once again I came away with a feeling that it was just OK. Not great, but OK. Their food is beautiful, but only one dish wowed me.

Both my friend and I had significant gastro-intestinal issues after eating at the restaurant. We had the supplemental dish, so perhaps that was what caused it. The management was informed, and has yet to offer any remediation after more than three days of consideration.

A plus was the restaurant's willingness to accommodate my food biases. For instance, octopus was an item on the tasting menu, and I don't care to eat octopus because they are intelligent creatures. The server was happy to substitute something else. All the courses - fish and shellfish for the most part - were delicious, uniquely flavored, and artfully presented. Chef' Matthew Kirkley's talent is evident and the restaurant deserves its new three-star status. My only negative is about their wine list, which could be more extensive, especially since Coi hasn't a liquor license, and thus no full bar. But we enjoyed the dining experience and creative expertise.

Our main server Tim has a warm demeanor and more than happy to answer any of our questions. He checked in on us at timely but not intrusive intervals.

The wine director, Courtney, helped us select our wine for the night. When she opened our first choice she noticed the bottle had corked and immediately went to chill a second bottle. However, the second bottle; while not corked was a bit too mature (past it's prime). Without asking she went and selected another wine with a similar profile and allowed us to taste and pick which one we liked better. We of course loved her alternate pick.

The food was amazing! I highly recommend adding on the supplement dish for two. In our case it was a squab with spot prawn. Super luxurious plate. The highlight of the meal for me was the the braised octopus, the textures and flavors all came together very nicely. My taste buds were so happy! I wasn't a huge fan of the abalone dish as the cucumber broth over powered everything it touched, so eat carefully!

Overall a very lovely meal.
