Situated in San Francisco's historic Jackson Square, Lindsay and Chef Michael Tusk's Quince features a nightly tasting menu that highlights the seasonal bounty of Northern California. Chef Tusk was named “Best Chef: Pacific” by the James Beard Foundation in 2011. In 2012 the San Francisco Chronicle bestowed a fourth star to Quince. In 2016 Quince was awarded its third Michelin star, which it holds to this day.

The cost of the tasting menu is $275. Quince requests all cancellations be made at least 48 hours prior to avoid a $275 per person (plus tax) late cancellation fee; this policy also applies to same day reservations. Due to the complexity of the menu, it may not be possible to accommodate all dietary restrictions. Please note, our menu relies quite heavily on shellfish and dairy-based ingredients.

The Michelin guide obviously does not mess around with their stars and the fact that Quince has three really says a lot about the quality. It was an absolutely fantastic restaurant and being the first time for us in a three star (only had dinner at one stars before) I see a hard time ever enjoying another place now that I’ve gotten a taste of heaven.

Everything was fantastic, altough, even though it is easy to overlook the gazpacho I do have to voice my opinion of this dish. Presentation was flawless but the taste was bland and just watery and didn’t hold up to expectations.

But the rest of the food was absolutely out of this world, you’ll have to experience it for yourself to grasp.

We came for the food and next time in San Francisco we’ll make sure to return because of the service. Absolutely world class service.

Thanks for making this the best evening in SF.

The food was stunning and sublime. Our server was great. The wine pairings we're good but aside from the grüner and Brunello nothing mind-blowing.
However one of the servers refused to switch a plating when we asked offering to get small plates so we could share before walking away. Also the glass pours were not equal per person. And finally when we finished our desserts the server who came to take them away commented how "we were definitely in the clean plate club" like we were five year olds at a greasy-spoon not a middle aged couple at a three Michelin star restaurant. Very odd.

天井が高く、雰囲気もよく、また、友人の特別なお祝いを伝えたところ、メニューに「Congraturations, XXX(友人の名前)とプリントしてくれているなど、良い点も沢山あったのですが、とにかく出てくるのが遅いです。 メインディッシュはその前のお料理から30分は待たされました。 それがあまりに強烈で、良かった思い出をかき消されてしまいました。 デザートワゴンも素晴らしく、また、タクシーを待つ間にホットチョコレートも振舞っていただけたのも良かったのですけど・・・! また、コースが275ドルもするのに、コーヒー、紅茶の6ドルをとる辺りのセコさもマイナスです。 サンフランシスコの三ツ星レストランはここしか空いていなかったのですが、空いていたのが納得な気がします。 お料理は色々と奇をてらっていましたが、全員同じコースなので、隣のテーブルの方が先にお食事が進んでいると、全てネタバレなのも残念でした。

Food and service was excellent, but was sat next to the most sexist people talking about cheating on their wives while my wife and I celebrated our birthdays, these vile people ruined the whole meal. It’s not on the restaurant that these gross bros were here, but you come to a restaurant and expect not to have be disgusted by the conversation around you

Absolutely amazing, took my girlfriend here for a special dinner , we have never experienced something like this. From the food, service and customer service I understand what 3 Michelin stars actually mean. It was a 3 1/2 hour dining experience and when every plate ended we were intrigued to find what was next. Neeeless to say i did not get the booty afterwards (only because it was the time of the month)

My husband and I enjoyed every moment of our dining experience at Quince. We told the restaurant, in advance, that we were celebrating our anniversary, and we were treated like royalty- personalized menus, a table in the kitchen for one of our courses, and well-wishes from everyone we encountered. Every dish was beautifully prepared, well-explained, and tasted fantastic. The menu changes with season and availability of ingredients, but leaned toward white asparagus and Meyer lemons last night.
We have been to The French Laundry several times, and agreed that we enjoyed Quince even more. The wait staff was excellent- professional but approachable. The old brick walls, long dark draperies, and subtle lighting of Quince all make for a wonderful ambiance. As with TFL, Quince demands a fat wallet, but what a wonderful splurge!

There’s a reason Quince has 3 Michelin stars. Excellence in EVERYTHING they do. Wonderful in every way, no complaints, second time to visit, more “small bites” this time. Can’t wait to come back.

Great anniversary dinner (fixed price menu), creative menu (small tasting portions that some might not like but we enjoyed immensely as there were many small plates); great service, and left with European hot chocolate in a cup -- who could ask for more. On the expensive side but worth it.

This was my first time going to a 3 Michelin star restaurant and also the most expensive meal I've ever had. However it was an amazing experience, we got the wine pairing and also the cheese. The cheese was very good as well as was the pairing. The pairing varied from a 1970 all the way to a 2016, from France, Italy, California, Oregon and Austria. During our squab course we got to eat in the kitchen and watch them preparing our food. Overall it was very good and I would definitely consider coming back to try new tastings.

Possibly one of the finest and most opulent dining experience I've ever had and I've dined at highly rated restaurants all over the world. Every course of this tasting menu was done to perfection. It's expensive and formal but worth the splurge for a truly remarkable experience. I'll be back.

Not impressed. For 2 people, it was $1k after all the up-selling, two cocktails and a corkage fee. Food was just ok. Service was impeccable. Too stuffy. So many better restaurants like French Laundry, Saison and Eleven Madison Park. Won’t be going back. Save your $
