We enjoyed an extremely memorable 3 hour dining experience this week at Quince. The food, presentation, service and ambience is spot on and designed to stimulate all the right senses. The food is incredibly flavorful with ingredients sources from their own farms or locally, the dishes are handpicked from around the world and to cap it off the service is... More

Wow, wow wow, what a great dining experience. There are many great restaurants out there but this is a standout. The degustation menu was great, also recommend the upgrade on the caviar - I hadn't been a fan until now. The service was excellent, and the wine pairing an excellent choice. I'm a fan

There is a reason that Quince has maintained it's 2 Michelin Stars for so many years...and that reason is because everything they do is amazing! The restaurant itself is beautiful and welcoming, with a spectacular art collection. The staff is attentive and courteous. And the food...is simply phenomenal. Obviously a $250+ per person multi course meal isn't something that you... More

It had been a while, since we last dined at Quince - too long, in fact, but we had been busy dining at Benu, Saison, Omakase, Atelier Crenn, and several others, so decided that the time had come, to get back to a favorite restaurant of our’s.

This is the place to go to celebrate a special birthday, with a menu bearing your name. Always superb and unforgettable service in one of the last quiet restaurants in San Francisco as well as exceptional fine dining. The decor is subtly iconic and lovely.

Accompanying each menu is an innovative wine pairing and sophisticated cocktail program. Chef Michael Tusk was named "Best Chef: Pacific" by the James Beard Foundation in 2011. Quince was awarded its first Michelin star in 2010 and in April 2012, the San Francisco Chronicle bestowed a fourth star to Quince.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

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.
