Coi has a stellar reputation. But on my visit, I couldn't understand why. I must say that the wait staff is amazing and the space is cozy and pleasant. But the food was very, VERY hit and miss. The California Bowl was adequate, but nothing special. But the blood orange sno-cone, which we were told was a palate cleanser was... More

The experience at coi is certainly a mixed bag. The design is beautiful and very cosy, one feels right at home when entering the restaurant, however the atmosphere doesn't make up for the at times inept service. Our waiter forgot requests more then once and was quite slow overall. The food, especially the some vegetarian parts of the menu were... More

This restaurant is gorgeous and the service wants to please although a little too something. When we made the reservation through Open Table, I didn't read the fine print and knew nothing about the restaurant. It is a prix fixe meal with a heavy tab. There were a few outstanding dishes and every one of them was beautiful. Just seemed... More

Had a 14 course pre-fixed dinner at Coi on Saturday, and it was easily one of the best meals that I've had since eating in France. The service was superb, ambiance nice and modern. Presentation and the quality of each dish was divine! It is no surprise that this restaurant holds 2 Michelin stars, is on the World's Top 50... More

If you are not a fan of modernist cuisine, and aren't up to paying Michelin 2-3 star prices--$500 per for food AND wine-- stay away. But I found the 8 prix fixe plates plus 5 added plates--palate cleansers and amuse bouche--to be sublime. For example, oysters with Meyer lemon jelly, radishes and horseradish could easily have been a mish-mosh flavor... More

I took my husband to Coi this past Friday night for a culinary weekend (followed with dinner Saturday night at Saison). Having eaten at so many top Michelin and world-ranked restaurants in the recent past, we both enjoyed our meal but still were left a bit underwhelmed with the menu offerings--and agree that it is therefore overpriced in that regard....

It is a reservation system wherein you buy a ticket for a tasting menu. We also got the wine pairing. While each course was well prepared and creative, it wasn't up to the Michelin star status. I always expect at least a couple of "wow" dishes, but nothing really stood out - at least for the price. The wine pairing... More

I want to say this was a mind blowing dining experience especially given the price. Sadly though it lacks a lot. I confess to have dinned in find amazing restaurants but am not a dedicated " foodie" as such and perhaps that's why this place missed the mark for me. The atmosphere is like church hushed tones and overly obsequious... More

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
