We chose Quince based on multiple good reviews all around, which makes it even harder to write this review, however I would hate to think someone will visit Quince and conclude that this is the level of culinary experience that SF has to offer. So- if you are visiting SF I strongly urge you to pick a place that is... More

We went there for our anniversary last. We always splurge on an elegant, romantic dinner together to celebrate. This was pretty over the top! The main dining room is gorgeous and well appointed. The wait staff very attentive (sometimes perhaps a bit too much), but they were all lovely people. The FOOD! was a tastebud explosion. Beginning with the Benvenuto... More

We had the most expensive dinner we've ever had anywhere here, I think, but it was stunningly sublime! Every course was beautifully presented and delicious and all the little extras--the mini hors d'oeuvres bites to start, the sorbet intermezzo, and the tiny sweets at the end--just add to the overall experience. The asparagus on the spring menu was lovely, the... More

We have eaten at Quince several times and my wife and I think it's the best of its sort in San Francisco, and one of the best anywhere, and that's saying a lot. Quince has a lovely dining room, and the staff are wonderfully attentive and gracious. It's a place where you feel very welcome, whatever car you checked or... More

My husband and I are hardly the image of the power couple -- we valet parked in full view of the Maitre-D a 10 year old Camry and my husband is hardly a smartly dressed person. The reservations were made for our celebration of a milestone "older" birthday for my husband for the geriatric time of 5:30 PM (opening time)... More

The room itself is elegant with tall ceilings. Decor was fitting of a restaurant of this type. The type being 2 Michelin Stars. Had the full tasting menu with wine pairings - which was terrific. The wine stewards were informative, charming, professional (young!) and attractive. Look forward to returning.

Simply outstanding. The service is smooth and relaxed, the food bursting with flavour and the presentation spot on. The wine pairings were only just on the right side of pretentious and the abalone is never going to be to everyone's taste, but these are minor quibbles in an otherwise exemplary experience.

We were recommended Quince by a couple who had visited the city a few weeks prior and could not have been more impressed. John and Kathleen provided impeccable service throughout the evening and the meal was a wonderful display of what local San Francisco has to offer.

I don't often do restaurant reviews, but I felt this restaurant is deserving of special note. It was recommended by the four seasons concierge and I believe it has received 2 Michelin stars. OK, the food is excellent, above average in every way, particularly in presentation. This the closest I have seen food presentation done as an art in the... More

Quince is an experience to be savored - you don't have a choice really, the multi-course tasting with wine pairings and cheese plus all of the chef's surprises took about 3 hours, but I enjoyed all of it. Service was professional and solicitous. All of the dishes were creative and well executed (the only dish that wasn't wow! was still... More
