    the food was good but expensive and ultimately the whole experience was over shadowed by the bartender telling me i was rude for asking if there was a host or hostess we should wait for after we stood at the front door for 5 minutes without having anyone approach us. Instead of seeing us waiting there and telling us someone would help us momentarily, he just watched us wait there perplexed. Then when we politely asked him if someone would be helping us (considering the host stand ipad was dark and no one was around) he very rudely responded. for a high end restaurant it was really disappointing to be treated this way.

    We were really looking forward to this given the reviews, etc. The food was just OK, nothing special or even creative except strangely enough the desserts.. Some of the prices are ridiculous like the tiny bowl of hot and sour soup for $18, etc.. I can't believe people raved about the steak fried rice. It was fried rice with some cut up steak nothing that tasted special? It's a nice restaurant, the server was very nice but one of the many new San Francisco restaurants where you feel ripped off .

    Took some out of town business guests to Mister Jiu's and they couldn't have been more impressed by the food, ambiance and service. Loved the atmosphere of the restaurant and dinner highlights included: dutch crunch bbq pork buns, wontons, and sizzled cod. Cocktails were well crafted also and wine we ordered paired well with our dishes. Would definitely go back to try other dishes.

    Absolutely wonderful experience! Visiting San Fran for husbands 50th. Service and food exceeded expectations. Our waiter (from Nashville) made our evening special even giving us recommendation for places to visit while in town, and our sommelier was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. We had best seat in the house. Thank you. I hope we can come back soon.

    Food and drinks were delicious and service was good. Unfortunately, the dining room sound level is far too loud, making conversation very difficult. I would recommend this restaurant for the food but not for the ambiance. It's surprising that a restaurant that puts so much care into their menu wouldn't also consider the comfort of their patrons.

    I was very much looking forward to dining here. I found the service friendly and accommodating, but it was so loud as the evening progressed my friend and I had to shout at each other across the table, just 3 - 4 feet from one another. Food was tasty but not memorable, and the portions were so small compared to the prices, I can't imagine going back. $200 for two people should provide a better experience. Even the restaurant decor left something to be desired. Hate giving lukewarm or negative reviews, and I hope they'll improve over time.

    We tried this restaurant a few months ago and generally thought the food was interesting and well prepared with an "honest" Cantonese base. This time, however, we found several of the dishes quite uninspring and even coarse. Note that we are in Hong Kong many times a year and frequent modern, "Westernized" Cantonese restaurants there. In particular, the beef in a clay pot was an echo of what this dish is supposed to be, with shallow flavors, a watery sauce, and beef slices that were so uneven it was distracting. Suggest avoiding wasting one of your choices on the mustard greens with urchin sauce. The stuffed quail was pretty good but nothing unusual. Ambiance is intentionally loud, like that other bar-based Chinese restaurant in town (whose food is far superior, if uninventive). If you know nothing about Chinese food, you might be fine here. Expensive for the family style fare you are getting--no effort into plating at all.

    It's a great restaurant -- beautiful decor, great views and amazing food -- but it is LOUD! The music, the people and lots of hard surfaces do not make for an environment where you can talk to the people you are dining with. I love high energy and bustle but Mist Jiu's is too loud.

    How it works- you choose either 4 or 6 courses for fixed price. Food was delicious but price point was high for Chinese food reimagined. I love how they are raising the bar but some of the food was too familiar and can get equal or better at Hong Kong flower lounge.

    The overall experience was dominated by the food, creative and traditional, new combinations of old and new ingredients, esthetic presentations, unexpected variance in textures and flavors. Every mouthful was exciting and gratifying and tasteful simultaneously. Memorable were the soft shell crabs with fennel, fried garlic and green chili and citrus aioli, charred green and wax beans and slightly sticky fried rice with egg, buratta and XO sauce. The visual presentation of the sesame cake (dark, grey and muddy) was not to be forgotten. The drawbacks were the closeness of the tables, the unnecessary "music" plus the people noise in an exceptional space on old Waverly Place.

    Attentive staff, very good food... odd manner of how you order -- but it does make things interesting I suppose. Would rather have either a set menu or a typical one in my mind -- made things more confusing than necessary. But the quality of the food trumps all, and I hope to return to try some different entrees.
