Felt comfortable despite being solo while at a business meeting. As usual for a tasting menu, the portions were small, but the ingredients and combinations were delicious and the wine pairing was complementary. Attentive service, answered questions on food preparation and selection of paired wine. Small dining room with partial view of the kitchen. Expensive, but that was expected.

This place is amazing. Just be ready to spend a little $$$$. It is a set menu, and we received a 10 course meal with wine pairing for 6 of the courses. It is expensive, but worth it for the experience.

Actually happy for the "bad" reviews of Coi, because they brought my expectations back down to earth.

What a pleasure to have these lowered expectations blown away by the FANTASTIC service and food experience last night at Coi.

Sorry, but I can't think of a thing that the messed up. And while all of the courses were super, at least 3 were taste experiences I didn't think we're possible.

Well worth the money, well worth the time. Don't miss out on this taste experience while you have the opportunity.

Man. For a base price of 175/person without the wine pairing, I honestly expected more FOOD with the tasting menu. Just wasn't that much quantity. I was satisfied by the end of the meal, but I just didn't feel like I got my money's worth. The food itself was pretty good, with some dishes that were definitely stellar (steak was great, and there was a whipped coconut dessert that was awesome). But having been to a bunch of "top-tier" restaurants in between NYC, SF, Tokyo, HK, etc., I feel like restaurants like Coi are pretty much a dime a dozen and this didn't stand out in any way. Basically, if you want to blow 200/person on dinner, there are definitely yummier ways of doing that, even if you stick to just SF.

Service was absolutely fantastic.

Currently number 58 on the list of the world's best restaurants (as rated by S. Pellegrino), Coi offers a truly unique experience. More of an experience than mere food, Coi excels in all areas. The service was the best I have ever received at a restaurant and the food was simply exquisite. Foodwise, the only places that really can compete - that I have personally been to - is Matbaren in Stockholm or Glass Hostaria in Rome. Coi is such a grand and excessive experience that it is best reserved for those special occations - otherwise it is simply too much.
