For our 20th anniversary we went to Gary Danko and had a star studded meal (Kobe Byrant was across the room), but we thought we'd up it a knotch and try a 2 star Michelin restaurant for our 30th anniversary. Quince was perfect. Elegant setting, quiet rooms and tasteful ambience. Superb, expansive, though expensive wine list and a 9 course... More

Quince, a two Michelin-star restaurant in San Francisco, is one of our favorites. We celebrated our 14th anniversary dinner there last night (our anniversary was October 15, but it took a bit to get weekend reservations). They really create an atmosphere of "customer wow." When we checked in, the maître d' greeted us with "Happy 14th Anniversary." Our server thanked... More

What a wonderful evening from standing outside the restaurant where you can look into the kitchen and see the chefs preparing dinner. The cocktails were amazing - including the house Bitter Heart. Then the food - from the first cheese courgette to the pumpkin tortellini and the simplest dish - egg yolk pasta with butter and white truffle and the... More

We were on our 20th anniversary trip and unfortunately became sick. Called the restaurant and we were told they wouldn't refund our $200 - yes $200 - deposit.....left a bad taste in our mouths and won't recommend to our many friends and family who love the city.
