It’s very enclosed, but food and service was great. Very pricey but portions are very decent so you definitely don’t feel like you got jipped. Overall, it was a great experience, and I will come back.

We enjoyed our Valentine’s Day dinner! The steak for two was a great option. I wish the seafood platter had more portions to it but still delicious.

We waited 30-45mins for the server to take our orders and the same for the food to get served. The ambiance is nice, it was a little bit loud but the food was superb! The salmon was amazing!! We will definitely come back when we visit SF again. I had the best birthday dinner in International smoke so far! Thank you!

Really excellent meat tender ribs and yummy warm cornbread and good mac ‘n cheese. The mai tai’s were tasty too. Service was outstanding - speedy and friendly even at prime busy lunch time. I was very impressed and that is a rarity for me regarding San Francisco restaurants.

International Smoke is an excellent casual restaurant. I had the business lunch: wedge salad, ribs, and a chocolate chip cookie. The food was excellent. As was the service. The ribs were among, if not the best ribs I have ever had. Slightly spicy, a little sweet and fall off the bone tender.

I read about 40 reviews, which ranged. We went with a party of six. Seafood platter for $92- lobster excellent, Shrimp lite char good, oysters and crab okay, a good dish for 2-3 people and duck legs were surprisingly tasty. The American ribs tender with a light smoke, steak juicy, grilled mushrooms, and salmon were all good. everyone said they would come agsin.

Our server Nathan was amazing, very helpful, attentive and super aware of our needs. Very friendly, warm and welcoming. We were also quite late for our reservations and the hostess handled our situation with so much patience. Thanks for a wonderful evening, delicious food and drinks, we had a very pleasant experience.

Birthday celebration for two. We had a 6:00 pm reservation and got there at 5:45. They asked us to have a seat at the bar, which there was no seats at the tables at the bar since all the tables had “Reserved” signs. We did not want to sit at the bar because we were not going to order a drink. So we stood there for 15 minutes. There was a lot of empty tables in the Main dining, but we were finally lead to a table in the open section (not the main dining) at 6:00 pm. So we waited 15 minutes before seated; although we should not be upset since our reservation was for 6:00 pm. Once we were seated, service was excellent. We ordered two appetizers Ayesha Curry Cornbread and Tokyo-Style Chicken Karaage. Also ordered the Avocado the price you pay, you don’t get much. Including one beer, the evening came out to $75 per person. I would say overall, food, service, and value is probably 3-1/2 Stars.

They did not have a good night ... the wait staff is obviously under trained not professional in the slightest. They sent my drink order to the wrong table they took an hour after seated to take our dinner order they made the burger wrong with cheese when we asked without - by the time it came back out everyone else finished eating g already. They apologized and treated us for desert but then gave us someone else’s leftovers upon leaving. Food was tasty parking was a hassle no valet it should not be visited during rush hour to say the least save for lunch or late meals only !!!

We were hoping to sit early as when I booked the reservation, they said that would be fine. When we got to the spot early, they refused to seat us prior to the reso time. Everything else was great.

Loved the food and the atmosphere. Great service from our server. The only complaint is that all the food came so fast... we had barely gotten started on our appetizers and then the entree came less than 5 minutes later! We didn’t get to enjoy the appetizer and opted to take it home instead.

I picked this restaurant for a special lunch with a colleague. Food was truly amazing, from the corn bread to the chocolate chip cookies. We really enjoyed the ribs, and the lunch special helped keep the price to a dull roar....but worth every penny and a really good memorable meal!
