We went for SF Restaurant Week. The portion and sampling was incredibly generous and service was impeccable. Took one star off because almost everything was a bit overly salty.

Everything we ordered was delicious however the sweet potatoes were simply amazing. Smokey with a bit of spice. Highly recommend then.

Everything was excellent as always—we branched out from the ribs to try the chicken and burger which were absolutely delicious. Try the power business lunch—starter, main and delicious cookie for $35. Great deal for an amazing lunch!

Celebrated our son’s birthday and it was a lot of fun! The food was delicious, especially the cornbread, ribs and cauliflower. And the salmon and chicken were a much appreciated option for our son’s girlfriend who doesn’t eat red meat. Food is served family style for everyone to share, which adds to the celebratory mood. The cocktails we had were creative and tasty. The staff was friendly and attentive, and the music and vibe were cool and festive! Older folks might find the music a bit loud, but we enjoyed it for a birthday celebration. Birthday dessert of molten chocolate cake was decadent. We split it among the 5 of us because we were so full, but the bites were a perfect finish to the meal. I recommend International Smoke if you’re looking for a fun, trendy spot to celebrate a special occasion or treat out-of-town guests.

The food we had was good, but extremely filling. It all was just a bit over the top; overly seasoned and sauced up.

Celebrated my birthday and anniversary. The team gave us cards for both occasions and a complimentary dessert with a candle to wish me a happy birthday. I truly appreciated that! Food was amazing, desserts were new — a tad too tangy for my taste, but tasted great! Would definitely come back to try out the other dishes.

Took my parents out for a belated Christmas gift dinner, every course was amazing. The Bao buns were the star.

didn’t love the food. i’m all for fusion but most of the things we had were all slightly odd in some way or another. friday night reservation, server was sweet but way too busy so we had some big delays in service.

If you want ribs and a few interesting sides that are comfort food this is the place to go. Has the feel of a chain, service for our food from the kitchen was slow I thought, and of course, there is a bevy of people who bring your food. My friend loved the Korean short ribs.

I expected more from a Michael Mina restaurant - we didn’t receive our appetizer and my salad was more of a soup. No effort was made to correct the missing item or poorly made salad. Food was ok, atmosphere was good, service was poor.

Place I think may be over rated. Not too many choices on menu and meat plates over priced. Took half of my meat to go and when I opened it at home it had a fly inside crawling around my $67 piece of meat :/ had a great date but not one I would return to. It was more for the experience

It would enhance the dining experience if parties that are not complete can be seated upon arrival as opposed to making the patron stand by the front door.

Diva’s unite!!! Lol. Another Diva Nite, back at it. This is not our first time here. Something new every time. We had to try our favs and then add something new.

AYESHA’S FRESH BAKED CORNBREAD (2) thai red curry butter is always a tasteful addition to any entree. Asked for an order of 3, Instead of the usual 2 on the menu. Same for the “INSTANT” BACON BAO BUNS (2) pork belly, five-spice, sweet chili sauce. Something new. Nothing like these pork buns!!! Scrumptious!!!

CEDAR-SMOKED SALMON celery root, maitake mushrooms, brussels sprouts, bacon-sherry vinaigrette was cooked a little longer yo my liking. That’s Devin for the recommendation!! SINALOA CHICKEN achiote, chili, sweet potatoes, avocado was tasty too. The scallops were one of the specials of the night, appearance, wouldn’t expect anything less. Took an order of Rosemary fries home for my son, loved them. Although he initially asked for the sautéed mushrooms we had at our last visit. He wasn’t too disappointed when he received these hot fries.

LILIKOI MAI TAI, havana club rum, goslings, lilikoi, pineapple, lime, slurptatious times two. very flavorful and creative. The SPAM can kept it Unbelievably really cold.

Always a joy!!!! Plus the eyes candy.... lol.

It would be great if the tables were a little bigger when you order family style and it’s only 2 people. When you have an intention of sampling the menu it would be nice for the restaurant to accommodate. Apparently a $320 bill for 2 people was not enough to make a difference.... disappointing.

Burger was way to much to eat as a lunch when accompanied with the soup. It was really good when open faced on the plate!
My friend had the fish option and I noticed he did not eat it. There was some additional topping that maybe he didn't like but not sure. Did not feel comfortable asking.
The server was excellent and very nice. The service was a bit slow but we did eat at 12:15p so it's to be expected.

This just didn't do it for any of us. We were excited about the appetizers - but they all showed up within a few minutes - no spacing and certainly no time to sit and chat over our (very small) drinks. And then all of the sudden arrive the ribs and we had everything sitting on our table inside of 15 minutes of sitting down. It was weird. Servers kept trying to take away plates. It felt like a huge rush. We showed up for our 6:30 reservation and things emptied out in an hour or so - it didn't seem like they needed to treat us like that. The ribs were super sweet but we did enjoy the Korean ones a lot. Super cool space - really loud though until a bit later. Don't take someone with hearing issues. One of the loudest SF restaurants for sure. The bartenders when we sat earlier at the bar were all over it and really nice. The table service just didn't make this a good experience.

Everything was fabulous - the food, the polished service, and the little things/touches. It’s the little touches that is like the frosting on the cake and makes spending $167+ tax and tip for a party of three for lunch well worth it. Quite excellent!! The food was the combo ribs, roasted beets, garlic fries, shrimp appetizer, warm chocolate cake, and three bloody Mary’s. Every dish and drink was excellent. Lastly, very close to Bart/muni!

Food was very good and a great presentation. The staff was attentive to our needs and we didn't have to wait long for our food after it was ordered. I'm glad I had the opportunity to experience it while I was there on business. I would definitely recommend the restaurant.
