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 $295. Quince requests all cancellations be made at least 48 hours prior to avoid a $295 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.

Unbelievable dinning experience. Yes very expensive but the food and service is impeccable. The food presentations absolutely beautiful. Our chief server Shelbe was so helpful, great job! What a nice touch serving one course in the kitchen. It was great watching them work. Overall wonderful experience. Just expect to spend at least $500.00 per person

I’ve had a chance to visit all “the best” SF restaurants. We haven’t been to Quince in a few years and had a great evening.

A little problem with wine - the Som and I had decided on a few older Italian wines, but unfortunately, a number were corked. He was very gracious, had tasted and rejected them all before they came to the table. Great way to handle a wonderful wine list with mature wines. A short delay but no “difficult” conversations were needed about the status of the wines. Where we ultimately landed was very good.

Food was wonderful. Long dinner, but beautifully paced with just the right amount of food. I simply can’t handle the 25+ course tasting menus.

Thanks. We’ll be back.

Jeff Johnson.

This was a phenomenal night from the start. I was admiring the art and the team shared with me the gallery they get the art from. That attention to detail set the tone for the night.
The food was delicious, exquisite, and left us wanting more. The peas in a pod dish was amazing and the flavors were so powerful. Combining the food with the amazing wine and non-alcoholic pairings made the night even better. As a non-drinker my brother told me that the “gin and tonic” was as close to a real gin and tonic as you could have. It truly made the night better.
However the service was what the night truly special. The team was attentive, conversational, and helpful throughout. Theresa was particularly amazing. She provided my brother recommendations for restaurants in Minneapolis where he goes for business.
I recommend Quince to anyone who wants to enjoy man evening of fantastic food and spectacular service.

Quince is a special place. We have dined here several times and it always delivers. The tasting menu was creative and varied. The main entrée was the best lamb I have ever tasted (right up there with Guy Savoy). Veggie dishes of potatoes (fresh dug as they say), peas in the pod and fresh tomatoes were also excellent. Throw in some caviar on squid strips and it was a magical meal. We celebrated our anniversary here and were presented with personalize menus to bring home. Classy service, just the right amount of interaction and attentiveness. The dining room is gorgeous, with interesting colors and art on the walls. We also went with the recommended wine pairing menu (with one beer in it) and that complimented the meal wonderfully. Now, a slight disclaimer. This place will definitely lighten your wallet so be prepared to spent ~$700 per person, all in. But, chef Michael Tusk has put together a fabulous dining experience worthy of the three Michelin stars it has earned.

Absolutely fantastic dining experience at every level. Amazing cuisine that was so thoughtful from the preparation to the complex flavors to the presentation; service was five star and should be the gold standard for other any restaurant!
This is the restaurant I would not think twice about coming back to when returning to San Francisco.

The restaurant for being a 3 star Michelins is too noisy. Leaving aside this particular, I suggest you try it, you won't regret it.

We’ve eaten in countless Michelin starred and fine dining establishments and this was up there with the best. Yes there were a few hiccups to start with for instance I was served cool pasta which should’ve been warm and there was a lot of up selling for alternative more expensive dishes however... the food was beautifully presented and genuinely tasted phenomenal (the wagyu was melt in your mouth buttery and totally delicious), great professionalism from staff and wonderful surprise of dining with the chefs which made our evening that much more special. Would recommend in a heartbeat.

Quite possibly, one of the best dining experiences we have ever had anywhere in the world. The attention to detail and level of service is beyond imagination, even for the most discerning diners. You never want for a thing. The service is exceptional, elegant and everything you expect from a course driven dining restaurant. They made wonderful choices for our mostly Pescatarian diet. We asked for a table change to a corner booth and were accommodated immediately. The champagnes and wine accompanying the imaginative courses is thoughtful and perfectly matched. We had no less than 10 persons attending to our every need, discussing each course, each bite that was fresh and sourced from a local farm. The courses are generous, and more than the “bite” you often receive at other multiple course establishments. Worth flying from LA to SF just to dine here. An unforgettable experience in every sense of the word.

I searched for Michelin 3 stars restaurant in San Francisco, the only one available for this weekend was Quince. The restaurant is elegant, the service is attentive. However they try to charge you as much as they can. The price was $295 per person. But the waiter talked us into paying additional $75 per person for “unbelievable” pasta dish, which was simply average. Also additional $75 pp for pairing with non alcoholic drinks, also additional $85 to switch lamb to Wagyu beef. By the time we added tips we spent more than $1800 for 3 people (luckily we don’t drink alcohol).

What an amazing experience, great ambience, excellent service and phenomenal food! Every course was an explosion of flavor and taste! We were treated to dessert in the kitchen, what an orchestra created by Chef, absolutely amazing to watch! I would recommend Quince for any event but most importantly, I would visit on my own for dinner!!

I didnt mind the price. the food was delicious. The only thing I didn't like was how the entire staff tries very hard to make us know exactly why Quince is so great. The food speaks for itself. It is very good and I definitely can't find it elsewhere. However, I wanted to relax and also not wait too long. I felt antsy. And when staff members came to talk to us and talk about all these things... it made me tired. I love the food. I just dont always want to listen to so much information. The part where we went to the kitchen... it seemed very planned. The extra dishes... very nice, but I also think you guys do it for many customers. That's just fine... but you guys don't need all that. You are already good. I guess it is lacking humor and a more down to earth feel, but this is just me. Most people probably love all the talk.

Be carefull of their supplementary menu.
Before Quince. We visited Benu which is same level ( 3 Michellin stars) Same set menu price no hidden cost during the whole course at all.
However in Quince my brother and I ( two people ) were asked for supplementary things during the whole course. We were asked for upgraded lamb to wagyu for additional $85. Salmon caviar into premuim for additional $85. Of course you can refuse them however waiter makes you feel like your original menu is not as good as upgrade one, and it was quite annoying too.

Food with no superise and plate presentation is below average. The worst thing is after this meal I felt too much gas in my stomach. I didn't realise this was caused by dinner until the next day when I chat with my brother he had exactly same situation last night. I will simply ignore this without calling them to complain because I know I won't give them a second chance.

I hope they can impove and retain thier reputation. To be honest I won't give a second visit maybe it suits someone else but not me.

Quince was our fourth Michelin 3-star experience in the Bay Area. While every single experience has been outstanding from all aspects, Quince resonated with us, perhaps a tad more than the others. This by no means is meant to be a knock against the others, but to make the point that the Quince outing was singular. For us, on that day, under the set of circumstances. Another way to state this would be while we would definitely do an encore on the other 3-star restaurants, we would like to start with Quince first. Thank you for everything.

It’s been a few weeks. I had to think about this. We’ve been to EMP, saison, Brooklyn Fare, French laundry, meadowood, George V, etc...not sure how this place got a 3 star. We waited for 15 min at our table to be greeted by the server....The food was very good but for the most part lacked innovation and creativity. I would give them 2 star at best, probably somewhere between 1-2 Michelin stars.
