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.

Great service and great food. Lunch menu had few options than I expected. I want to go back to try their dinner menu.

The food is outstanding, esp. the steak. Ambiance is modern and fine. The service is good. The only problem is the food prep. takes a long time. The menu is a bit limited as well.

Although pricey ... this may be the best brunch I've ever had. The quality and variety of offerings was truly exceptional. The service was extremely attentive without being intrusive. And while the setting was sophisticated, it was also very comfortable. It was the perfect destination for Mother's Day brunch.

We went for the 9 course tasting menu. Three people at our table requested that the duck be switched for another dish. Unfortunately, instead of offering a red meat, the chef proposed a fish which considering that the menu included prawns, diver scallops and salmon (and oysters as amuse-bouche) was a bit too much. Otherwise, good.

An eminently reasonable price for a tasting menu in which virtually all dishes were imaginately conceived and absolutely delicious. (My only quibbles: the salmon confit could have had more taste, and it would probably have been better to serve the more delicate dish of scallops before the sphagetti with uni, which have a stronger taste and lead up better to the fabulous magret dish.) Friendly, attentive (on the whole) service; clean, refined decor; and remarkable food, well worthy of its Michelin star. Memories of this meal will linger for a long time.

This is a nice restaurant with a good ambiance. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The dinner menus is a bit limited but the food is generally good. Service however could be improved. It is rushed and a bit inattentive.

I’m so glad I found Luce. I’m visiting San Francisco for the first time and I wanted to try local restaurants. The service was amazing (thanks, Keith!) and every bite of each dish was perfect. I had the butternut squash appetizer and the truffle ravioli — make sure you have a piece of their bread to soak up the truffle sauce! I also had the elderflower dessert. The cocktails were delicious and refreshing. They’ve definitely earned their Michelin.

This was our first time here and we left beyond impressed w the service and the food. Our waiter was so attentive and accommodating to my garlic allergy and Miguel tried every single time to make sure our plates were removed and our table was clean. We would def recommend this place to our friends and family. We are planning to bring family for dads birthday celebration.

Experience was OK. Service was excellent, but food choices could have been better. The dessert table was especially lacking. Nothing special about it - just some cakes and sorry looking miniature cupcakes.

The quality of the food for the Easter brunch buffet was excellent. I appreciated the variety of food and it’s presentation. My only complaint as I compare this Michelin star restaurant to other Michelin star restaurants I have dined at I would say this service was not as attentive. By that we had to make multiple request for drink refills. Dirty plates remained on the table for several minutes.

Came for Easter Brunch... food variety was mediocre for $90/pp (no carving station, no oysters or seafood other than prawns). I found pieces of rubberband in my food... we are always missing a glass, or a coffee cup or a fork.... would not expect that to be a michelin star rated restaurant.

Very disappointed in this restaurant. Went for the Prix fixe menu. The food started off pretty good then through the 9 courses became mediocre at best. The biggest let down was the service. Very unprofessional and overly familiar server could not pace the meal correctly or even keep the water glass full. Finally, I am shocked they have a Michelin Star considering the overall cleanliness of the establishment. From minor like stains on the tablecloth to the major reason I would not recommend Luce the bathroom was basically little better than a rural gas station and remained so throughout the evening. Skip this much better dining in San Francisco

I had lunch with my family two days ago at LUCE. There wasn't too many choices on the menu. We ordered the king salmon, chicken breast and short rib. The food quality is above average . Derserts are great.

We had a wonderful evening here at Luce after seeing Hamilton at SHN this week. The atmosphere was relaxed, open, and airy. The food was beautifully prepared and tasted as good as it looked. Perhaps our favorite part of the evening was our server, James. He was attentive, charming, insightful, and a pleasure to interact with from start to finish. The wines he chose for each our courses were expertly paired to the dishes we selected. We would definitely come back!

I am a big fan of Luce. it never ceases to amaze me there is somewhere so good just a block from the Moscone. The service is fantastic, great wines, and the food is always on point. Usually have the risotto.

Too loud for a business meeting and paid close to $ 400 for a breakfast buffet for for 7 people (no alcohol) since waiter told us it would take 20-25 minutes for orders off the menu at 8:00 am. Might be better for dinner.

The servers were lovely, no staff complaints. They did bring me the wrong entree, though. Once they corrected the issue I got a surprisingly bland and undercooked duck which wasn't at all appetizing. Surprising, for a $35 dish.
The dining room is cozy, nicely lit, and you don't have to shout to be heard. It was just the two of us and for some reason we were seated at a semicircle booth with room for six people to sit comfortably, with multiple empty smaller booths and two person tables visible feet from our seats.
I was disappointed and wouldn't recommend Luce to anyone, it's an experience I wouldn't want to have again.

We came here for CCSF's Culinary Clash and all I can say is, wow! Everything from the atmosphere to the service and up to the incredible food prepared by the competitors, Luce is definitely worth the visit. Even though we were here for something different from their normal menu, the ambiance and service alone were enough to want to come back for the real menu. Quick, attentive service, all food & wine out at one time and comfortable seating all around!

The service was great and the food was good. The problem is with the ambiance. This is a big restaurant and there very few customers even on a Saturday night. It feels rather cold inside.

Waiter didn’t seem like he was having a good time. He was very short with us, and barely attended to our table. We had the tasting menu. The food itself was pretty good, but not that special. Nothing really amazed me. The dessert wasn’t great either. I don’t recommend another visit.

Food was very good, although a few of the items on the menu didn't sound as appetizing as one might have imagined. It could have done with being a little warmer in temperature.

Service was very friendly and knowledgeable, albeit perhaps a little slow. The restaurant is nice but struggles to fully shake the hotel lobby ambience.
