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.

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 $

My wife and I went to Quince for a wedding anniversary and it was probably our beat dinner ever. Outstanding food, impeccable service, and a very elegant environment. We were there before and Quince is consistently exceeding our expectations, worth of a 3 Michelin star rating

I cannot say enough about the wonderful, creative, delicious, amazing meal that we had at Quince two weeks ago. I live in New Orleans and eat out a LOT - I have also lived in New York and Washington, DC. I've eaten in several Michelin starred restaurants both in the US and abroad. My dinner at Quince was among my top 10 restaurant meals of all time. The staff is incredible. We were never rushed, everything was explained, substitutions were offered - perfection.
This is a unique dining experience - not the type of meal that you would have every week or even every month, but for a special occasion or if you are visiting San Francisco (as I was) for work or vacation, this is definitely worth your time.
We were even given a very special treat of having an extra course (not on the menu) made for us and served right in the kitchen -- it was magical. I would love to return to Quince the next time I am in San Francisco - I'll be dreaming about it until then.

Have never been to a restaurant where the staff took so much pride and wanted every meal to be successful. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. Go for the wine pairing if you can afford. Most restaurants focus heavily on reds, we were impressed by the quality of the whites which paired well with the early courses. Every course was a delight. We left on foot, with a hot chocolate in hand which kept us warm to the waterfront. Thank you to Michael and the entire team for the memories.

Great celebration of our anniversary. Wine pairing was a bit pricey but included some very nice and well paired wines including a 1961 Nebbiolo. Our favorite course was the pasta dish with Squab that we enjoyed at a table in the kitchen. Everything made for a very special evening.

I can’t say enough good things about Quince. The service and food are incredible. The atmosphere is beautiful and not stuffy at all, which I find with many Michelin Star restaurants. Everything flowed perfectly and I would not change a thing. Thank you for an unforgettable dining experience!
