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. 😋
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.
Amazing from beginning to end. The course in the kitchen was awesome.
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.
Got to go into the kitchen and enjoy our pasta course while watching the staff work
- 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!!!!
They didn't have records of our reservation, other than this, the overall was great.
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.
