Luce - InterContinental San Francisco Ratings and Reviews
Great place for a business meal. Close to transportation, Moscone Center.
Features Piero Patri's humanist architecture, and a mindful energy efficient plant.
Dominique Crenna's touch is not too heavy on the breakfast, brunch and lunch menu, which makes it more accessible to our international visitors. Recommend the staff particularly for an attentive but not obtrusive presence.
My son and I wanted to dine at a Michelin star restaurant and this was fantastic. We had the 9 course tasting menu paired with wines. Each course was simply remarkable and sublime. The service couldn’t have been any better. Truly a memorable dining experience. Price was ok too compared with other tasting menus at other Michelin star restaurants.
Absolutely amazing food, topped with top notch service. Our server James provided every piece of information we need without us asking for it. We were very well looked after, with the right amount of banter. We were left alone to enjoy our evening but not feel like we were forgotten. One of the best service we have ever experienced. Cannot fault the food either, we ordered from a la cart and every was delicious. I particularly like the beet starter and the duck main course. We highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions.
A Michelin star restaurant, needs more that great food!
The meal was excellent, creative, beautiful presentation, but the ambiance was a turned off. Impersonal, too big,. I knew it was a hotel and by the pictures knew it was not sexy, but really, if you have a special occasion, you want to feel special. To have a beautiful glass of a sparkling wine, you want to be looking at a wonderful space... at the end of the night, the staff was setting the tables for breakfast for the next morning of the hotel guests ....in the same space I was having this wonderful meal....
I would love to see this chef someplace else...
This was a birthday dinner for me and everything was perfect. I loved the interesting flavors, the beautiful presentation and obvious skill, creativity and thought that went into every dish and detail.
It is a part of the Intercontinental hotel which is also very impressive and parking was nearby in the 5th and mission street garage.
The duck and foo grad appetizer was a perfect meal for me eating according to a ketogenic diet, though I did indulge a little at the end with some dessert with the 3 cheese plate. It was all so good.
We came here for our anniversary and where curious about their tasting menu and their Michelin star status. We completely enjoyed our meal. There were fun cleansing palette surprises that weren't on the menu which were delightful. Compared to tasting menus prices for other Michelin restaurants in SFO, it was a good value. Our only critique is it took quite a while for our server to come by once our meal was complete in order for us to ask for our check. Besides that, everything was 5-star experience.
We arrived 2 minutes before the restaurant opened and were asked to sit until they opened. A party arrived after us, but then were seated right away - before we were seated.
I had let the restaurant know in advance that we were coming for a special occasion, but this was in no way actually recognized by the restaurant. (Not even so much as a "Thank you for spending your Anniversary with us" or "Happy anniversary".)
We could not participate in the tasting menu due to another event in the evening limiting our dining time, but we asked about ordering a single course from that menu as a supplement to the entrees we ordered. The restaurant said no. I've dined at countless restaurants and this was the first time a restaurant refused to find a way to make it work. Other restaurants have always figured out a way to come up with an appropriate charge and serve the course.
Overall, the service was unimpressive and I won't return. There are many options in San Francisco, you can have much better experiences for the same price.
The service at luce was outstanding. Our waiter waa polite, funny, and had in depth knowledge about the food. Furthermore he knew all the details of providing great service which is very rare these days - timing, never interrupting, putting napkin folded back when someone gets up, getting chair, serving and removing plates from the proper side and position, never reaching over someone, making personal exceptional recommendations when asked, and Keeping water glass filled even after the dessert is over. It was all about our dining experience. The rest of San Francisco has a lot to learn from luce.
I should have believed the reviews -- this restaurant is a solid 3 stars, but somehow has recieved a michelin star for the past 7 years in a row. God only knows why. The layout and food service (my boyfriend and I got the 9 course tasting menu) felt what what I'd get/eat on a business trip. Nothing special or personalized, nothing overly stuffy or comforting, nothing memorable about this except for the fact that we both left feeling underwhelmed and questioning why/how we just both dropped $170 each on a bland meal. The food: not inventive. The ambiance: sterile and trying to feel modern but felt outdated. The waiter: frusterated/angry that we didn't get the $65 wine pairing. I won't be back and would recommend you try a different Michelin star restaurant when in SF.
The food is outstanding. We became "foodies light' after our daughter worked as a cook and sous chef in Los Angeles, so we have had our share of excellent meals at a number of restaurants with michelin stars and this meal in US and Europe and this meal was right at the top of our experiences. The sorrel granita with blackberry sorbet was one of the best dishes I have ever had, but others were excellent as well. We had the tasting menu and my husband had the accompanying wine selection. He can be a bit picky about his wines and he loved every one. I had a sip of several and was particularly impressed with how well paired they were with the food. They were all California wines, a wonderful range and we were unfamiliar with all but one.
Great experience that I would recommend to anyone for a special occasion. It was a bit strange that the restaurant was quite empty for a Saturday night. Perhaps they have extra seats for their brunch that they don't sell for the more complex dinners - or perhaps it is just a overlooked treasure.
My wife and I came to dinner at Luce for our first anniversary. The restaurant is elegant, well design, comfortable and welcoming as is the staff. We ordered the tasting menu with matched wines and that was really delicious. We really appreciated our dinner there, everything was perfect.
We were greated by the hostess and escorted to our table. Service throughout the meal was very attentive.
The food was seasonnal , corn soup, burrata, risotto, but kind of flat.
The risotto was not seasonned at all and the dishes were somewhat "boaring". Otherwise simply presented, but elegant.
Dessert (pannacotta) could have used less gelatin , little more strawberries and more originality in the presentation.
Our servers were very friendly and made us feel welcome.
Was expecting a little more from a 1star michelin.
Quite a classy restaurant with professional and assiduous staff - started off with the elderflower cocktail; the amuse bouche was zesty with cucumber; was not too impressed with the bread; chose seasonal dishes from the summer menu - the appetizer was grilled blue prawns in bisque-like foam and sauce with pistachio nuts that whetted one's appetite; then duck breast with stir fry vegetables and onions - the duck was tender and juicy despite the long hours of preparation put into it and matched well with the sides; tried a moscato from local vineyards as a dessert wine to pair with the pavlova with berries and raspberry sorbet - a fruity choice and totally spoke "summer". All that for $126 (gratuity not included) - really very reasonable and was like half of what other Michelin star eateries may charge. Highly recommended.
Came here for extra points for a weekend brunch. The service was impeccable and food delicious. We ordered the grilled salmon and short rib hash. They brought some nice warm and butter came too. There aren't many restaurants in SF that do this anymore. Beer selection is good, even some local craft beer is available, and their cocktails are delectable. Very much recommended, especially for a celebration or special occasion. It was a little pricey for a simple brunch but you can always be assured of good quality. It wasn't busy either - bonus! Thank you Luce.
