We began a 3 month long celebration of our 45th wedding anniversary by starting (early) at the Inn at Little Washington, for a week of dining joy. We crafted two business meetings in San Francisco into more culinary delight, ending with a week at the Lodge at Meadowood, for more dining, and threw in the French Laundry for good measure....

First of all, you can't just come and have a dinner at this place. You need a reservation. This is the place of haute cousine and you will be impressed with micro portions of food elegantly designed. The quality of the food is awesome, and the cheque is crazy. Be prepared to pay for the dinner for 2 persons with... More

The dining room was less than half full on a June Friday evening, so the word must be out. The food is too precious. You'll have spent $70 on two overpriced glasses of non vintage champagne or sparkling wine before you start. One of our fish dishes included a tiny wrap made of extruded over processed fish stiffened with starch.... More

It is hard to believe that Coi was the first of the multi-course prix fixe 2 and 3 star restaurants in San Francisco that now dominate high end eating in the city. Eight to 12 courses are not unusual in these palaces of fine cuisine and the all carry there figure tariffs--in most several three figures. That being said, Coi... More

The food here was very good as expected from a Micheline 2 starred restaurant. That being said, I have had equivalent meals at half the price. The wine pairing was however excellent and would definitely recommend if back.

Had been so looking forward to this based on its world rankings but can only assume things have changed with a new chef earlier in the year. It is expensive but I knew that before arriving, no shocks there, but there was little to appreciate. Lots of little courses with no cohesion or reason, just a few grey suits arriving... More

Very Interesting setting, excellent service with excellent & pricey wine list..... We were glad to bring out own wine... Menus are creative as the team seem to enjoy exploring variety of international ingredients. However, It seems to me the culinary team try too hard to use exotic ingredients. Perhaps a difference in philosophy? the team seem to forgotten or not... More

This restaurant has a strong ingredient focused menu, with an emphasis on good produce and highlighting it at its peak flavour. The dishes were visually pleasing with bold flavors. Daniel Patterson was still here at this point, so can't say how it's performing since his departure.

Three of us had dinner at Coi and thought the food was spectacular. Creative, incredible flavors and theater too. Really enjoyed everything we ate (and drank). Unlike a lot of 2 and 3 star restaurants, the food was incredibly light and we didn't leave feeling stuffed to the brim. Incredibly delicate flavors permeated the food and everything was beautifully presented.... More

We had arrived at the restaurant 20 minutes early. We were seating immediately. Only tasting menu is offered. We had notified them at time of reservation our allergy restrictions. the first three courses were great but the portion was very small, even for a tasting menu. Bread did not come until the fourth course and only one piece with a... More

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.
