The steak was really good - I had the schmiz steak
the sides we have shared at the table were very good as well
the service was very slow - it was about 40 min until we got our food
the desert menu is very poor in terms of selections
the coffee we have got was not matching what we have ordered
and the price - EXTREMELY expensive for this kind of food.

The presentation of the food, the incredible variety of Wagyu they had on their menu, along with the constant stream of chef-compliment aperitifs made this an exceptional dining experience that I will never forget.

Foie Gras is the best I've ever had.

I'm a steak person and I like it straight-up without interference of odd "flavors"....but back to that later.

The wine list and wines by the glass were varied, extensive, and worth going to for a glass. It's actually worth skipping dinner....

I went on business with a concierge of arguably the top hotel in S.F. This person did not announce whom they worked for but wanted to test this place out as referrals for their guests and dignitaries.

The waiter took our order. He was curt, explained dishes when we asked specific questions, but never offered additional insight into the philosophy or background of the restaurant.

Started out with the parsnip soup. A server came to the table and looked like he squirted hairspray/mousse into a flat dish. We waited to commence dinner until I received my soup. "That's your soup," he said, referring to the "C"-shaped foam on my bowl. Um, I didn't realize it was going to be one of "these" types of dinners. I am perfectly fine with it but "steakhouse" is a different connotation and expectation. The flavors here were heavily Asian-inspired, which brings me to my steak.

I ordered a filet, rare. Yet, the steak had a slightly fishy, "umami" flavor that simply tasted different enough not to love. The quality of the steak, though, was wonderful. So it felt bad to leave much of it on the plate.

Dessert saved the evening. Chocolate soufflé which was light as air but dense with flavor.

The food was good but not great. The price is a little steep. I don't mind paying good money for great food and drinks, and I was just left lacking.

There's better alternatives in San Francisco
