    I came here for my birthday, the food was okay, nothing to run back to. I was asked if this was my first visit. It was for my husband, second for me. We did the Jamaican tasting menu, but nothing stood out. Although served small, it was not good enough to finish the plate. We have had three servers come to us, but I think they were waiting for us to empty our plates. At one time, it was taken away, and I was not finished. It was with the rib and pickle. I loved the pickle on the plate. On my reservation, I mentioned it was my birthday. It was not acknowledged, which was disappointing. I did not want to place a review because I was not satisfied with the visit, but I thought the establishment would know, so maybe they could improve customer service.

    Service was off - we ordered the tasting menu with beverage pairing. Beverages came well after the course pairing and we also had to ask our servers multiple times to request the beverages. Our server forgot about us mid meal and it took a long time to take our order for more drinks. The kitchen was fast and food was good but not great.

    The Michael Mina Group and Aeysha Curry's Team have given us a fabulous restaurant for a night out in Downtown SF! The service is outstanding and very attentive. We were made to feel special from the beginning. The Server made recommendations off the menu which turned out to be spot on! Wonderful wine list as well. Great place for Special Occasions or business dinners on an expense account. I would highly recommend this to our VIP guests.

    International smoke was good food, the price is way to high for what they serve but service and atmosphere makes up for it. I would say this place is a must try but not a place you go often. Bonus points we got to see Steph Curry here.

    The food and service were very good, but the markup on wines was outrageous. We bought a lower end wine for $130 that had a markup of over 600%. That is simply gouging!

    International Smoke is a dining experience that everyone should have on their must experience list. My wife and I plan on going back every time we’re in SF. (2-3x per yr) The food is incredible, creative yet familiar, filling and satisfying without the bloat of bad ingredients or preparation. Everything is fresh and so flavorful. The staff is attentive without hovering, very welcoming. There are some dishes that are subtly over the top but done in such a balanced way that it’s a refreshingly new variation on a familiar theme and you don’t have the feeling you’re part of an experiment. Also, you will leave satisfied and full. Great portions. I give this place an O for outstanding. For Mac and cheese and cornbread lovers, you’ve come home!!

    What a disappointment! The restaurant has really fallen off where it was just a couple of years ago. Probably related to the pandemic, not to mention the significant construction related disruptions caused by the issues at the Millennium Towers. Who wants to eat in a restaurant where the view is scaffolding? The food was so-so at best. Ribs, oxtail, Sea Bass, Tuna Rolls and duck wings. We had the wine flight of 3 utterly forgettable wines. The “sommelier” was also our server? Really? You don’t mind spending $$$ when the food and the experience are worth it. This was a fail. Unfortunately, we won’t return

    The whole block where the restaurant is located was covered with tarp and hardware which made an already difficult area to park IMPOSSIBLE! It was difficult to find the entry into the restaurant. The restaurant should have advised us of this situation. No word was given. We had an elderly guest with mobility issues. This caused her great physical discomfort therefore putting the whole Evening In jeopardy. That said, the bartender and Our server were very good &

    International Smoke: 1. If reserving a table, make sure there's no party in the upstairs banquet facility. The noise & thumping from the loud music added to the overwhelming noise level that reverberated throughout the establishment. 2. It's insulting to charge patrons $17 for 5oz glass, (not 6oz, as is customary in most restaurants), of chardonnay and yet $17 for an additional 4oz. of the same. Who does that?!!! 3. The food was "meh"...not noteworthy or spectacular in any way; the portions are not in line with appropriate pricing for the fare. 4. The place is precipitously over-hyped with youthful enthusiasm while remain underwhelming and largely pretentious in core aspects of its operations. 5. Coming away from the experience and based upon our disappointing discovery of the establishment, we have to wonder why and how there's so much to be made of the Michael Mina brand.

    First of all I asked about sitting at the Atrium on the reservation. Got there and we were sited at a different location of the restaurant. Hosted would not even consider sitting us else where. We had a view to the street our sitting was in the very back next to the waiters placing orders constant disruption. To add to the already bad experience our window view to the street a woman decided to bring her pants down and go to the bathroom. I am sure this restaurant can do something about their window views. The food was marginal . We did an event a couple of years ago at this restaurant and the experience was amazing the food was gastronomical. This Restaurant is loosing the formula. Our guest were disgusted as we recommended this place as being amazing

    Not worth the cost of the food. Service was slow and they weren’t even busy. Food was just ok but very pricey. We did the tasting menu for $75 pp and was disappointed. Not much food for the cost. Took at least an hour to just get the main entrees which were lack luster. Not sure we’d go back again which was disappointing.
