We always love our meals at 54 Mint! The ambiance is energetic, however it's quiet enough to have a nice intimate conversation. As far as the food goes, it's always such a hard decision choosing between the different entree options. Everything sounds so delicious! On a side note, my husband always notices the cleanliness of the windows at various restaurants and he pointed them out to me last night and they were sparkling. More

Have been there for lunch--when it was superb. This was for a birthday party dinner for 4 and--it was literally breathtaking. Service was very, very good with one note: sometimes hard to hear the server's voice, but--that could be my hearing. Elegant, tasty, fresh (for lack of a better word) cocktails (Flowers!)---extravagantly good wine pairings---ordered all the small dishes and the entire table was deeply pleased; ordered four of the mediums and three deserts to share---and every dish was a revelation. The very idea, of creating a gallery of excellence---fully comes alive here. Do note: no substitutions or variations, you have to take the dishes as they come (you don't get to draw on a Picasso or a Rembrandt with Sharpies either, so---it all makes sense)---And we didn't have to travel to 9 different cities on 4 continents to experience all that excellence. Will return as soon as my waistline recovers. Fully deserves all of its accolades. More

Excellent food and service. The server asked if we were going to a show and needed to eat quickly. The chef even suggested swapping an entree due to tight timeline. They even comp'd us a half dozen oysters, which tasted amazing. We also went into it knowing the room is used for events, so the warehouse feel was expected. The food alone was excellent and we would definitely go back with friends. More

Vietnamese | SOMA, San Francisco

Have been here twice, strongly recommend to anyone who's looking for an Asian fine dining experience, and I think Khai deserves at least one Michelin star. The entire place only has 5 tables, so the overall experience was very intimate and private. Chef Khai even came out and greeted each guest, which is hard to come by at any place and I really appreciate that. Chef Khai is a celebrity chef in Vietnam and was judging for a few food shows. The tasting menu itself was fantastic too, every single course was well thought and they taste great! The quality of food and service is unbeatable at this price. More

French | SOMA, San Francisco

I think the main course portions were tiny for the price. Scallops 5 pieces or so, tiny plate, small serving. Filet Mignon nothing less, look's like a appetizers. With two glasses of wine, one appetizer, two entree's, a round of a dozen oysters at the happy hour rate of 1.50$, and then one dessert and a coffee, the bill came to 177$. That's too much, if the portions were more generous, I'd have no problem but it's heavily overpriced, and probably great to just have a drink/app's at the bar and call it a night. Won't be returning - overrated, overpriced and under whelming in portions. More
