LOVED the food, incredible service by Francisco, our wonderful server who went above and beyond to make my mom and my birthday extra special. The entire staff was lovely as well. Can’t wait to come back!
Enjoy the different foods had the barbecue American and the corn bread the chicory salad and the cauliflower was very delicious we enjoyed every bite, Mahalo
I would give the service a better rating but I had to ask what was served to us. We decided to get the package one to be able to try about 80% of the menu with small portions. The only thing is everytime our food comes out, they just placed them on the table and I would like to know what I am about to eat. The servers were very nice. They were able to answer me when I asked them. Would have been nice not to asked and be informed next time
Had a large table for a business dinner. Appetizers were fantastic. Go for the Bao buns and peppers. Steak entree was not impressive and salmon was over cooked.
Food and ambiance was great served seem stoned or something the whole time and we had to ask for things multiple times. My friend and I both work in restaurants but thought It was a bit odd for how nice the restaurant was
They have done a good job from the inside hiding the outside, which is covered in scaffolding due to the Millennial tower construction. If one does not care about SF views (this area doesn’t off much in views anyway) then it does not really matter. The food is great and the ambience very nice.
Would definitely recommend International Smoke. We dined during Restaurant Week and the menu offered a great selection. All the food and cocktails we had were wonderful, so delicious. Service was great from beginning to end.
Servers and staff were amazing. We had the tasting menu and the food was delivered quickly with very little wait time in between dishes. The food however was just okay. It was as if every dish was slightly under seasoned. The different types of ribs were nearly hard to distinguish and the there was too much sauce on the Bar-b-que ribs.
We were told that meats could be substituted for veg options but the server said otherwise. Non veg eaters were very happy. The veg eaters liked their dishes but can’t say they were as happy.
Best service, hands down! Always polite and attentive.
Great date night spot, with amazing drinks and atmosphere, and top notch food!
Service and food where outstanding. Our server, Michael, raised the bar and selected the entire meal for our table of 6.
What a wonderful experience!
Will absolutely be back.
Very nice place. The food was excellent. The cocktails were also very creative. Loved the cornbread appetizer. I has the ribs with the Korean bbq sauce. They were fall off the bone tender. They were supposed to be more sweet than hot, but I did find them a bit hot. But I have a very low tolerance for heat.
They were a bit slow getting us our after dinner coffees, and it took them 5 minutes to find sugar for them.
I would probably have given them 5 stars except for 1 last thing. We were celebrating our anniversary and had let them know. They gave us a nice card when we were seated. But at then end, after ordering and eating dessert, they then gave us an anniversary dessert, and charged us for it!!! It was only $3.50, but we didn't order it, they presented it as a gift, but charged. I have never had that happen before. Put a bit of a damper on an otherwise great night.
We decided to check this place out after walking past it a bunch over the past year. Food was pretty good (their take on Ceviche was unexpected but a definite standout), but the service is what set them apart.
Paco was our server and was great. However, due to the noise and a misunderstanding on my & Paco’s part, there was a miscommunication on our order. Paco and Julius (manager perhaps?) took care of this immediately, and the way they handled the entire situation made me a fan for life. I highly recommend coming here, especially if you have a larger group and are ok with a little noise!
Food is great. Just remember, you are paying for the restaurant’s RENT at its location. Clearly overpriced by 20%. $6 for 2 muffins?
Meal was fine, but definitely overpriced. Service was subpar, very slow.
we got seated in the section across from Mission Street. Scaffolding along the street facing side and low ceilings gave a claustrophobic vibe. Music was too loud so we could not hear each other without shouting.
Good and great service
The food was very good but had a very limited menu. You should only go here if you want a BBQ dish. Very expensive for the food offered.
Muy buena experiencia tanto en lo gastronómico como en la amabilidad de quienes atienden el lugar
We come here often, we like the food!
Dinner here was amazing. The Mac n cheese was the highlight. Service was perfect!
We stopped here to try drinks, the desserts and sample the food for my bday. Drinks were underwhelming, ordered the signature old fashion. Ordered Korean ribs, they were pretty bland and overpriced. They were sold out of brisket. We then ordered the smoked cheesecake and crepe cake. These were good. I appreciate the service and the happy bday! The setting and ambiance are not what I’d expect at all. The large dining room is basically a hotel lobby with fake plants. If you’re expecting world class bbq at $60 for a rack, check your expectations.
Food was excellent (OMG the Mac & Cheese!). We sat in the bar area and had Karina as our server, she was simply outstanding. We would go back to see her and try more food options on the menu. Great venue, great service.
Wonderful food and ambiance!!!
Had a group to celebrate 2 birthdays. Best food and best time for all.
Best friends first visit
Love love love Karina!
It was our first time at International Smoke and I was sooo impressed. It may be my new favorite restaurant in the city. It was easy to get a last minute reservations and we were a couple minutes late and they still held the table. The food was to die for and was even good as left overs the next day. I will be going back soon!
It was great. Wonderful, helpful and attentive waitress. Delicious cocktails and pretty great ambiance. There is a ton of construction happening outside right now but other than that it’s pretty awesome.
Muy buena la comida … súper recomendado !
Excellent place for date night, friends, gatherings, by far the best cuisine in San Francisco. This place never disappoints me.
18th Birthday celebration. We were running late snd with my calls to the front desk they were very understanding. Felt very attended to by servers. Flavors exciting and lively. Noisy ambiance but for a special occasion was just fine.
Excellent food! Everything was delicious!
Get the tasting menu.
We were Visiting San Francisco for five days from New York… We chose international Smoke at random, and were so pleasantly surprised! The food was amazing! The service was fantastic, as well.
We would definitely recommend it!
Amazing food, can’t wait to return
Anniversary dinner that was just ok. Had the ribs, messy but flavorful. No extra napkin and service not hood so never could ask for one. Best thing we had were the duck fat fries.
