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 $298. Quince requests all cancellations be made at least 48 hours prior to avoid a $298 per person (plus tax) late cancellation fee; this policy also applies to same day reservations. If we are unable to confirm with you, your reservation will be cancelled one day prior to the reservation at 5:00 pm. 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 food was interesting/intriguing, certainly more suited to a tasting menu. The wine pairings were also good, but heavily weighted to whites; I would have enjoyed tasting 2 or 3 more reds. The service could not have been better.

This was the best dining experience we have ever had...and we have been to the French Laundry. The service was perfect, there when you need it and not there when you don't. The food was exquisite and beautifully presented. The noise level was low and the room had high ceilings and was softly lit. It was awesome. Our wait person was Kyra and she was a perfect delight. Very attentive and knowledgeable about the cuisine and wines. She was awesome. This restaurant is a high recommend for foodies and/or a romantic celebration.

An exquisite dining experience where every detail is carefully chosen for its flavor,color and artistic intent. A meal worth savoring and sharing with someone you love. Expensive but a bargain considering the labor, discipline and passion put in by Chef Tusk and his staff.

Quince lives up to its reputation. Expensive? Yes. Worth the price? I have to say Yes, again. We went in the middle of the week, so not crowded. Service was wonderful. At first, I was concerned that there were too many different servers and wine masters attending to us. But each had a specialty, and a story to tell. Juan, in particular, provided insight to and history behind the cutlery and china. Robert paced us through and described each course expertly. And the food--well, there was nothing that was not perfect. Oysters in a cream and nettle sauce. White asparagus prepared two ways. Wagyu beef--both American and Japanese bred. Additional treats besides what is listed on the day's menu. By the time we arrived at the beautiful dessert trolly, I could hardly eat another thing. Definitely take your time. We were there for well over 4 hours, and enjoyed every minute.

We have been enjoying a few 3 star Michelin restaurants in the past, and we really enjoyed Quince. The service was remarkable, the food was consistently great throughout the tasting menu and the wine paring was very very well selected. I am not your typical desert lover, but I was blown away with those as well, and the praline cart at the end was an amazing finale! Thank you - you exceeded our expectations with leaps and bounds.

In a word: Overrated. The service was a good but way over the top and made us feel uncomfortable due feeling like our every move and word was being monitored. The food was good but for the price? Nah. Out of 10 courses, we loved 2 or 3 of them and the rest were good but not worth the money and prestige imho.
