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. 😋

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!

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.

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.

Thankfully we asked for a paired down version of their 14 course prefixed menu.

Some items were lacking flavor and acid....
the lobster pasta dish such a phenomenal idea, poorly executed with little to zero flavor. (Pictured below)

The truffle pasta dish served in the box also pictured below and seriously lacking any type of real flavor. I was extremely disappointed to see two women wearing jeans to our left, after we were heavily warned about the dress code while making our Reservation. I have nothing against jeans in fact I would’ve liked to been in my black jeans would’ve been much more comfortable for this dinner, but we didn’t want to be turned away upon arrival. The service was impeccable. There is nothing like there whatsoever.

I have been there a few times before and really loved the place but this last time missed the mark. After 2 years their 2 first courses have not changed and the rest of the meal felt bland. Nothing stood out and I left the restaurant not really feeling like I had eaten at a 3 star Michelin, but my wallet did! Shame this place used to be great.

Kathryn and I have never had a BETTER DINING EXPERIENCE in all of our combined years. "Amazing" does not do it justice. For a special occasion or special dinner, this is THE place. You do NOT need to be a food expert, just be able to enjoy an unbelievable evening with unmatched food and service. The General Manager (Matt) makes sure everything is perfect for you, and I'm not just sayin' that. He and his entire staff insisted we were at the most comfortable table and every single thing was handled beautifully over the four plus hours we were there. We were lucky enough to get to sit in the chef's kitchen for one of our thirteen courses and oh man, what a treat. You want the treat of a lifetime? Dine here, at least once. See Regan or Adam also for terrific service! Thanks to them! Ted & Kath

Michael Tusk & his team clearly demonstrated that the enhancement of our dining experience at Quince was a priority for them . While the exquisite culinary dishes exceeded our expectations, the presentation, ambiance, decor and artwork was complemented by welcoming aura of every one at Quince, from the moment we arrived, throughout our visit with special surprises, until our departure with hot chocolate! We would not hesitate to give the highest recommendation!

My husband and I dine all over the world at 3 star restaurants and came to SF to dine after spending Thanksgiving in Sonoma. We were looking forward to a beautiful evening at Quince and were heart broken when the food did not come up to the standards we are used to.
The service and wine pairing at Quince was exceptional but the food was not. My husband made a comment and the chef made him something else. He came to our table and thru down the food with an attitude as if to say how dare you question my food. We will never come back. We have hundreds of Michelin Stars and we will not be adding this to our list.

The service was excellent from the time they opened the door for us til we got into the taxi. Even the people who weren’t our servers were very friendly and knowledgeable. I believe that they give one course in the kitchen to every table which was fun and interesting to see the choreography. Expensive but well worth it.

We chose Quince for the 30th birthday dinner for our son and his partner - we are all foodies and looked forward to the dinner. The restaurant is beautiful - tables are far apart so you have privacy. Beautiful photos on the wall, gorgeous flowers, very classy. Our waiter was really friendly as was the wine steward and all our servers - no one was snooty and the staff answered all of our questions and were very relaxed and made us feel comfortable. The only issue was that we had very long waits before we received anything to eat or drink other than water. Also there was no wine served until after we received our first course. My son and I did the wine pairings and my husband and my son's partner each had two half glasses of wine - one white and one red. The offer of half glasses was really a great benefit. But the wait between our being seated and the first course was 30+ minutes, and the waits between courses was really long until mid-meal. After that the courses came faster - ironic as they were larger portions. The friendliness of all the staff made up for the waits. All of the food was artistically presented and many interesting ingredients. I enjoyed most of the courses - particularly the black cod, the lobster pasta, the caviar [we didn't get the upgrade but loved what we got], and the venison. The wine pairings were interesting and we had at least two very rare wines in this group. I have had better pairings but these were quite good. Dessert included a special candled cake for our son, and passion fruit dessert was lovely AND there is a dessert bar! The entire presentation of the diner was very beautiful. No regrets - expensive but worth it!
