In this hallowed level of dining, there tends to a sense of sameness. Everything has a story, Who grew the carrots, in what organic garden. How well the cow was treated until its final hours. etc. As a result, the food is all very good, with restaurants failing when they try too hard to be different. As a result, we... More

Arrived at Keiko hoping for a grand meal. Sadly, not more than 5 minutes after being seated a food course was presented to us. We had not been afforded a moment to settle in without various staff approaching us. Already the vibe was odd as I felt the staff were totally stressed out. Notwithstanding food in front of us we...

A real delight, walked up to the restaurant on Nob Hill from downtown by which time I was more than ready for a glass of Champagne on arrival. The Chef was very friendly and visible front of house throughout. Overall all the courses were very well executed - great flavours and perfect portion sizes all made with fresh seasonal ingredients... More

My wife and I dined here for our 10-year wedding anniversary. This is easily one of the best meals we'd ever experienced. The chef is a culinary genius. Each dish is prepared with equal attention spent on artistry and taste. The chestnut wrapped in a fig was sublime, accompanied by a chestnut soup that was unreal. Each course was a... More

We were really intrigued by Keikos sample Menu so we had to go check it out. Our expectations were exceeded and we loved the unexpected but wonderful concept that combines precious and beautiful Japanese ingredients with elegant French style. The entry is pretty and I will return and try the slightly less formal Bar side next. The Dining Room space... More

Wow! A really amazing experience. The food presentation was fantastic! The taste extraordinary! And the wine pairing were just right! I found the duck and the lobster ravioli to be some of the best I've ever had. A truly unique experience.

Dining here is a delightful play on your senses...from the serene and beautiful setting to the amazing mixture of textures and flavors on your palate. The kaiseki style dinner started with a mousse of uni and caviar perfumed with smoke from cherry wood. The salad was not only visually stunning but also had such a complex mixture of flavors and...

The food is some of the best in San Francisco. It is innovative and excellent. Very expensive with optional extras but do not need to order them. Water can be espensive at 8.50 a bootle refilled without asking. But a very worthwhile experience in a small intimate quiet setting with Asian touches

We were a group of six people enjoying a fantastic meal and experience at Keiko. We were places in their winery, hence we were a group, and that was a great room with a great ambiance and a lot of privacy for our business dinner, simply perfect.
