    Phenomenal. Loved the truffle lobster, the uni cream appetizer, the pumpkin pasta, lobster pot pie, the wagyu beef shabu shabu, and the dark chocolate dessert. Did the 5 course with wine pairings.

    Try the chef's Ketto menu ($160) paired with wine ($99). Ketto is Japanese for dueling. So if there are two of you, each person gets a different dish on the 9-plus course menu. Read more

    I had the tuna tartare & the tomato salad for starters & the lobster pot pie for an entree. I preferred the more filling tuna tartare over the tiny tomato salad. The lobster roll was amazing!

    Exceptional service and food. I only wish I had brought company as I could barely finish my desert. Highly recommend the 6 course tasting menu. Delightful.

    Fantastic restaurant! Definitely great place for all the foodies. Tuna tartar for a starter, dorade for a main and red velvet cake as a desert were excellent!! Tip top service and marvellous wine list

    A great wine selection. Definitely do pick a few of their whites. Oddly enough, my favorite dish was the complimentary grilled cheese and tomato soup snack ;-) But definitely try the tuna tartare too.

    This is one of the best restaurants I have EVER eaten in. If you come to SF you have to make this part of your itinerary. The food, wine and service is to die for. 4 out of 4 stars.

    Carbonara and tuna tartare!!! Lobster pot pie was a bit overpriced and not as good. Good for business meetings

    Amazing food. I think this is Michael Mina's best restaurant. Great service, great atmosphere and everything is cooked well. Not the cheapest, but lunch deal is not bad.

    Leave room for refined renditions of classic desserts, like the rich red-velvet génoise with hibiscus-rooibos cream. – Green Guide Editor

    Regular chefs menu can be amazing. This place is like poker, sometimes the fold in the napkin is the best part.

    I'll be honest with you: My friend and I chose this restaurant because she said it is so popular and so hard to get in. At $400 for the Chef's Menu, Food was mediocre. And we had to eat in the bar!
