    The food was absolutely fantastic. Service seemed a little flustered but the intent was extremely hospitable and accessibly upscale. I recommend this for an intimate dinner or a lovely group.

    My friend and I dined at Ornos on Thusday evening. We were looking forward to having a great experience as it's a Michael Mina restaurant. Sadly, this wasn't the case. First, our server. Although he was nice, it was very apparent he didn't have the experience. He didn't know which side to place eating utensils. We had to show him how. Second, we ordered two appetizers and two entrees. The appetizers came quickly and they were tasty. But, before we could finish our appetizers, the entrees arrived. Now, this is where things became even more disorganized. He brought different dining plates and utensils and was confused whether to take away the appetizers plates et al. We ended up having both sets on a small table. For entrees, we ordered the petrale sole and roasted lemon chicken: 1) the sole was over fried, leaving it oily and no taste. It looked and tasted like bar food. 2) The roasted chicken was also over fried, leaving it super dry and rubbery. Because of this disappointment, I wouldn't recommend it to friends or revisit it again.

    We were seated in the corner and waited 30 minutes. The server never came to our table, although she took the order to the table left of us. We asked the water server, another waiter, and the receptionist for help, but unfortunately no one ever came. This was the worst service we have had in a very long time, and I’m shocked that it would be representative of a Michael Mina restaurant.

    Waited an hour for our table although we had a reservation. Food was mediocre to good. Although Lamb chops were cooked perfectly. Corkage was $50 🙄 Sadly SF is lacking fine dining restaurants and this one isn’t the one you want to drop your money at.

    Reservation was made for team building event in San Francisco. We were sat right below the speakers, they were playing loud trance music with heavy bass and I literally could not hear anything people say. We requested multiple times for the volume to be lowered but they gave a sorry of an excuse that they can’t touch it. Didn’t make a big deal about it because it was a business dinner so we tried to keep it professional. My cocktail was good. Appetizer was ok. Sea bass that I ordered was ok. Decent portion. So meal ended and I asked for a box to go. Whoever that took my plate nodded, and went ahead to put my used silverware AND my coworkers USED silverware onto my plate that I intend to take home. That definitely pose a major hygiene issue and who knows what they will do with my fish when it’s getting boxed up… so no, I did not take my fish home and I told him to forget about boxing it. He nodded. Again. And came back 5minutes later with a boxed up fish. Overall I was very unhappy with the quality of service and the hygiene level of the employees. I had higher expectation from a Michael Mina restaurant. Will save my time and effort for another place next time we have a business meal.

    Previously dined at Michael Mina’s Michelin starred fine dining establishment at this very same location. Post 2020 this has been rebranded into a more casual Mediterranean Greek restaurant. Was seated at a table in a very busy location between restrooms and bar. Asked to be relocated to another table but outright refused. Even though a couple tables for two where within eyesight. Served by a team of staff members. Our assigned waitress only brought menus, placed silverware and plates in tween appetizers, main courses and dessert. Overall I found the staff members cold and indifferent.

    Had the lobster and lampchops. Unfortunately both were small and bland. Also the two most expensive dishes on the menu. Service was good and appetizers and desserts were ok, but overall a really disappointing experience. The old Michael Mina was one of the best meals I’d ever had, but I don’t think I’ll go back to this version.

    Estiatorio Ornos was a great experience - albeit pricey! Dining with 7 other colleagues to celebrate a retirement - it sure was memorable. The food was delicious and we went with the tasting menu. Each course you could not fault. Could do with more reasonably priced wine choice, sommelier really wanted us to spend way more than we did! The table was running around 30 minutes later but that was fine as we enjoyed great cocktails at the bar.

    The food is good- the restaurant is cool- the service is bad and they charge for iced tea refills but don’t tell you until you get a bill for 6.00 per iced tea. lol- no other Michael Mina restaurant does this especially when you are charging $6.00 for an iced tea - water and leaves nothing else. Greed.
