I am really happy I have a chance to speak a lot with my girlfriend! Thank you!
Food was tasty portion was way too small. I was still very hungry when it was all done. The table next to us were talking about going to get some fast after this.
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
Keep your eye on Chef Eric Anderson! He knows how to wow.
Loved the food, loved the service, felt the tables were too close together, could hear neighbours conversations, for the cost would prefer more separation.
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.
Coi provides an incredible tasting menu. I have had everything on the menu before, separately but their take on the dishes was phenomenal.
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.
Excellent food, very innovative and tasty. Exotic but very enjoyable
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.
Unique very special experience
