The globally inspired New American menu reflects the bounties from the surrounding farms of San Francisco and changes according to freshness and seasonality. Each dish is artistically created and highlights an inventive flair for marrying diverse flavors with natural organic ingredients into a gastronomic delight. The wine program offers a superb collection that inspires daring pairings at prices that encourage exploration, and has garnered the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence since 2010 and the Best of Award of Excellence since 2015.

The waiter made a couple of mistake and argued that this is what my customer had ordered. I heard whet he ordered and it was not what was brought to the table

Food was great. Smaller portions but they make sure to give you little things of bread/palate cleansers in between. By the end with dessert we were full. The ravioli and duck was amazing!! Definitely a place for a special occasion. Definitely will stay a night at the hotel next time. Would come back again.

Valentine’s Day after the Symphony. We went for the 9 course Tasting Menu. We enjoy tasting menus because, even if not all of the plates are ones that we would have chosen individually, it displays the chef’s imagination and skill. We did the wine pairing also. The menu was shellfish, fish, pasta and duck so the wines were whites, rose and very light reds. Not my normal selection of wines but each went well with the paired dish, which is the point! Each plate was skillfully prepared, artfully plated, meticulously presented and carefully described. Following the matinee of Bach and Mendelssohn, this was the perfect way to finish the Valentine’s Day celebration.

Great experience. Menu was unique and delicious. It’s clear the chef is a risk-taker and is a master of their craft. Would love to come here again.

It took 10 mins for us to be seated despite a reservation . The place was loud and tasting menu was not available. Service was good initially but then our server disappeared .

Also the Menu was short and catered to conference. Luckily the food was good and otherwise would have been a total disaster.

What a disappointment! My fiancé and I were all excited to use an open table gift card at a Michelin star restaurant, but overall the food was mediocre at best. Though beautifully presented, the bass was not very flavorful and the potatoes were undercooked. My fiancé’s steak dish was slightly better flavored, but a very small portion. We’d recommended splurging elsewhere.

At a restaurant like this one, I would expect the server to offer fresh ground pepper whenever they serve a salad. This was not done here, and when we requested fresh ground pepper, it took 3 tries and 10 minutes for it to arrive.

We went for restaurant week and the prawns and steak were exceptional and the desserts were amazing as well but the snapper and the squash left something to be desired even for the reduced restaurant week price. The squash was served cold and was kind of grainy and hard and the snapper and the lettuce and sauce it came with weren't flavorful. The flavors just didn't really go together on that dish. Great wine selection and service and the bread was also great!

Went here during SF Restaurant Week and to conclude it is overpriced hotel restaurant that tries hard but can't deliver. I would not recommend it unless it's 50% less than what we paid. I would want to know how they get their Michelin stars as i can't believe they earned it, must be bought.

Food: they try to make it look fancy and all but the flavors are basic. Like seriously nothing that impressed me or gf.
Sauce with stake sucked, tasted like a worcestershire sauce :/
Dessert was the WORST. Ice cream cake that was probably bought in the box from a store are you serious?!?! They should be embarrassed...

If you have been to other Michelin star restaurants avoid this. If you've never been avoid this because it will ruin it for you.

Luce is one of the hidden gems of SF. Their food is fabulous and well thought out. The quality is consistently very high, and presentation is wonderful. We went to several SF Restaurant Week menu restaurants, and Luce is one of the most generous in the $25 menu. They don't skimp on their quality nor quantity for Restaurant Week. Their normal lunches and dinners are fantastic and great value for money. I love this restaurant, and I highly recommended it!!!

Mediocre and expensive food and drink (small portions, not particularly interesting combinations). Awkward service, too-bright lighting, cheap decor (sea foam green linens, black water glasses so waitstaff couldn’t figure out when they were empty). Waste of $350.

Came here for breakfast with my sis while staying overnight at Intercontinental Hotel. Exceptional service. Everyone was friendly. I was really relaxed and not once was I rushed at all. The food was good. Yes it was a bit on the pricier side, but for the quality and service here, it's worth it. I would definitely go back when I visit the city or stay overnight at Intercontinental Hotel next time!

I met a friend for dinner and we ordered an appetizer and two mains. The food was very good and the service was excellent. A bit pricey for the portion size, though.
The foie gras was amazing. The other dishes were tasty but not mind blowing.
