It was as an exceptional experience . I’m glad I took my husband there for Fathers Day. Will definitely return.
Excellent, innovation food.
Made the reservation on open table and the restaurant never got it and didn't honor it though I could show it confirmed on open table
Extremely small portions for a lot of money. We both had the same thought- we’re going to have to stop for a hamburger or pizza on the way home!
Having read an article about In Situ in an Australian newspaper, the concept appealed to me.
So when I knew I was coming to San Francisco I booked.
It was a wonderful experience, all the dishes were prepared & presented wonderfully.
Some tastes were better than others. The service was exceptional & we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
It was topped off with a great visit to the SFMoma
My boyfriend and I are very like Japanese style restaurant, this restaurant service is good, the taste of food is very good, can fall in love with, is next to the museum, visit the museum after to eat very well.
Great food, nice although not overly attentive service.
Food was amazing...complimented the museum experience. Our waiter was particularly friendly!!!
What a delightful time, to see the museum and dine in such a fine restaurant afterwards. The food is exciting and beautifully presented. Thanks to In Situ!
Amazing Food ! Incredibly creative. Culinary Art worthy of MOMA. Great for lunch or dinner outings with friends or special someone. Portions a small and a bit pricey, but oh so unique.
That restaurant is amazing.
I discovered tastes that I was not able to relate to something that I know.
Fine dining at it's best for a snack, lunch, and dinner without having to commit to an entire tasting menu.
The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious- the portions were very small and very expensive. The closest thing to a salad was a small plate of sliced asparagus. We were all hungry when we left lunch.
Great food, great presentation. My only complaint is that on several occasions, the server started talking as he put a dish down, while we were in the middle of talking. Seems like a small complaint, but he could have presented the dish in a more authoritative way.
some of the best cooking to be found
It was overall great experience
Amazing! Food was outstanding and service was incredible and well paced.
The concept is interesting, every dish is form a different renowned chef. It kind of works, but not really, very mixed styles. The serving are extremely small and teh prices extraordinarily high, so expect to spend some money. Best on the menu: carrot soup with coconut foam. We also enjoyed the take on beef tartare, with the egg found in the horseradish mayonnaise under the meat. The main dishes (the fish and the lamb carrot) were underwelming. The fish with egg yolk had the strong flavor of egg yolk overpowering the dish. For dessert we had teh cheesecake, which is not a cheesecake but a warm round cheese served with freshly baked cookies; ok. The service was good, but little communication, did not feel friendly at all -- perhaps this is because the service charge of 20% is included?
This was our second meal at In Situ, and we enjoyed it as much as the first time. Cocktails were excellent, and we loved the small plates, especially the tapioca fritters and foamy carrot soup. They carry an excellent California rose, which we drank with our entrees - stunningly good risotto and beef tartare. The house bread is always good. Dessert: smoked sage brownies: what more is there to say. Oh, and the service is smooth, discreet and very professional.
They charge for bread! Bread was delicious, but really! Place was pretty empty early on a Saturday evening. They no longer require a credit card to reserve. That should tell them something. There are many very good restaurants in this town. One doesn't need to go there.
Delicious tiny carrot soup (size of espresso cup ), was styled as a small plate.
Lobster, styled as their medium sized plate, was the size of an appetizer and way too fussy. They took a delicious thing and overdid the embellishments, which did not add, but took away from the flavor. Especially did not care for the vinigary taste of the snippets of veggies with it. Desserts did not attract, again seemed overly fussy. We went elsewhere for gelato for dessert.
Service was very nice.
I am unlikely to return or recommend it to others. As I said, many other delicious restaurants in the same price range.
The food here was absolutely delicious. I’ve eaten a lot of restaurants in San Francisco and I believe this may be my favorite. The carrot soup is incredible and I don’t like cooked carrots. The wasabi lobster is mind blowingly delicious. We also tried the lamb Ragu care it in the Farro risotto, both dishes were very good. I can’t wait to go back again.
Interesting selection of food, starters were world class, mains a little small and not incredibly exciting.
The appetizer, soup and entree are marvelous. Creative, tasty, and nice presentation. Desert is a bit less impressive. Service is excellent.
Service is very slow. This is “fru fru” food. It’s all very artistic but don’t go hungry. Portions are ridiculously small. What you did get was okay. Husband liked lamb on carrot ( which is literally a carrot with some lamb on top). My salmon was okay. Brownie was cake-like and nothing special (although it came wrapped in paper with a string that had been lit on fire...) glad we tried it. Weird spending almost $200 on a lunch and walking away hungry...
It was quite impressive that, even though most recipes aren't original, the food was excellent and they pulled off every dish they served us. The caramelized carrot soup and the jasper Hill farm cheesecake were especially good.
Absolutely fabulous!! The food and service are top notch!
Amazing food, every dish was delicious and unique. The restaurant is beautiful and lively but quiet enough for conversation. Truly excellent and very enjoyable.
The experience was underwhelming
Fantastic food and service.
The menu, though limited, is packed with creative dishes from chefs around the world. We enjoyed everything that we tried. A very creative menu.
Every bite was exquisite. Attentive, knowledgeable service as well. It is a little bit pricey, especially if you get the recommended wine pairings, but it was worth every penny. And they divided some of our wine pairings into two half pours. That meant the two of us could each get our own half-glass , so we could pair with the two different mains we were sharing. (The dishes were so good you couldn't possibly be content just eating your own main. And they do encourage sharing). One of the best meals we have ever had (and I've had some incredible meals!)
Very interesting dishes, notably the wasabi lobster. The wasabi can be overpowering, but you can adjust with using less wasabi flakes. Overall food quality is good but quite pricy and built in 20% gratitude,. Service was good but slow and unattentive. Does not feel like they are under staffed.
Imaginative menu appropriate for restaurant’s setting within SFMOMA. Excellent quality of ingredients, expertly prepared.
Great location and nice decor. Service is good. The problem is the food portions. Unless you eat all four courses, and don’t share, you will leave hungry. The menu doesn’t describe the particular dishes and if the server doesn’t do it, you will be disappointed. Too bad, because the food is creative. But this poor food service takes away from a good experience. I will not come back, unless I hear they’ve made changes.
Came here after my graduation, as it was late in the day already for lunch and only a few restaurants are still open for lunch after 3pm. The food was gorgeous, an edible piece of art. The well-balanced flavors and sauces showcased the chef’s attention to culinary details, which definitely merits its Michelin one-star award. Would love to come back and try more of its art-like dishes.
This is my third time eating at this restaurant. It has not disappointed, though I save it for special treats as it is expensive.
I noted that some of the offerings this time are from InSitu, versus other restaurants.
My favorites this visit were the asparagus, the tempura fish and the risotto. Though everything looked great. The lemon tart is the only dish that I had ha before and it was delicious.
Lovely evening with my family at In-situ
The service was excellent
The food is amazing . The best place I have in pocket for restaurants
What looked at first like a limited menu unfolded with treat after treat of the highest order. Very creative, unusual dishes sourced from known restaurants/chefs across the globe. It’s a bit pricey, but for the creation presentation of the dishes, it’s gotta be. Service is kind and knowledgeable. Not fussy. Recommend reservation. Would not recommend for children or unadventurous in-laws.
The food is flawless and I love that they have there full menu for Lunch!!!! It is always my first choice for innovative food that is delicious.
