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. The cost of the tasting menu is $275.

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.

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.

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.

Fantastic service! We had our valentines dinner here and they gave us a wonderful time. My girlfriend has a dairy allergy and they were more than accommodating providing her with a seamless dining experience. The sommelier provided great recommendations. Our only caution is that this is a massive meal! Be aware that you will be FULL when you leave. 10+ courses will do that to you. 😋

Quince is worth it's 3 Michelin stars. Impeccable service and a wonderfully thought out menu that leaves you satisfied, not stuff. Every dish was a delight. Would definitely go back.

This was honestly the greatest dining experience my wife and I have ever had. Been to Micheal Minna, Gary Danko, etc. All great restaurants, but nothing like our evening at Quince! All the staff were great and personable. They surprised us by serving one of our courses in the kitchen as we got to see the magic of a 3 Star Michelin Kitchen! Even got a picture with the man himself Micheal Tusk! Can’t wait to return for another amazing dinning experience!

This was an unforgettable experience. The food was imaginative and wonderfully delicious. A highlight was having one course served in the kitchen where we got to see the action up close. The service was friendly and attentive. Just beware the $80 “seventies” Manhattan.

This place is magical. And not because of the perfectly executed 12 course meal, or the exquisite minimalist decor; but, rather, because of the personalized, focused and non-fussy service which is undoubtedly beyond compare. At the end of our five hour Valentine's dinner, we had created a close relationship with all of the waitstaff. We quite literally felt as though we had just dined with family members. My one complaint: too many tables too close together. For the amount of dollars spent on such a spectacular meal, one shouldn't be forced to share the experience with absolute strangers sitting 2 feet away.

Exceeded our expectations! This restaurant came highly recommended to us. We had a fabulous time. The service was superb and the interior beautiful. All dishes were outstanding. It was not only creative and delicious but sophisticated and well plated.
Amber was accommodating to our need when we made the reservation and Gregg introduced us to the menu in a very gracious way.
This restaurant well represents his three Michelin stars.
Bravo!

- Great food
- Time between courses was too long
- Servers not attentive to every detail especially during period between courses e.g. refilling tea pot
- Seaters are fantastic!!!!

After dining here I don't understand why this restaurant has three Michelin stars.

Service: Unorganized. Between checking in and placing our wine and dinner order (15 minutes), 4 different staffers came over - one to give us menus and take our food order, one to give us a wine list, one to take our wine order and one to pour us water. Our canapes were served before our wine was poured. The courses were not well paced...wait times between courses increased as the night progressed. THE WORST PART: I discovered the next day that my card was overcharged by $800 for my tab. It was a $500 dinner and I was charged over $1300!!! I called the restaurant and a manager explained that the server made a mistake, and that the corrected charge would clear in a few days. The error was eventually corrected, but what an inconvenience.

Food/Presentation: I was only wowed by 4 of the 12 courses served - beet-wrapped black cod, lobster & black trumpet garganelli, pumpkin bottoni, and green circle chicken. The rest of the courses seemed uninventive, as if I had tasted them elsewhere for a fraction the price. Lots of reviews raved about the caviar pumpkin pie dish...I thought the crust tasted old, like it had been in the fridge too long. I just picked off the caviar. Presentation was repetitive...the chef was clearly fond of foam. So much foam. The dessert cart was an odd touch. Not what I expected for a high-end restaurant, but I went with it and sampled 4 of the bite-sized options. Each was either bland or slightly stale.

I'm not a food snob...I've only eaten at a handful of high-end restaurants (meals + wine over $500) for very special occasions. At each of those places I felt that I received a what I paid for: impeccable service, exciting dishes, great wine...an experience to remember and recommend to friends. Quince is the first exception. Truly disappointing.

If you're in SF, go to Lazy Bear instead.

Always a memorable experience. We have been to many Michelin Star Restaurants all over the US and Europe and Quince is among the best. Stand out service and ambience.

It was a fixed menu so you had no choices, and was 10 courses. So way too much food, and ended up costing $500 per head for a meal we did not enjoy.
