“Creative food, but left hungry :(”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

I was lucky enough to book at Coi on my trip to San Fran earlier this year. ( I have only recently thought about sharing my experiences on trip advisor ). It's safe to say that the Michelin stars never let me down. The service was impeccably choreographed, some would say hoity toity, however I found it to be friendly and pleasant. 11-course tasting menu ($155) : our favorite was the Popcorn Grits. The waiter described the process in making the grits in great detail (popped corn that's mashed and the residue that is strained seven times over to reach grits consistency). I enjoyed the complexity of each of the artfully designed dishes but was left hungry after the meal :(

Next time I am in San Fran, I will look forward to visiting again

“Beautiful setting but pricey”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

I unfortunately didn't read the fine print and didn't realise it was degustation until I was seated. Beautiful setting and furnishings but very pricey for what we received.

“Exceptional experience”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Exceptional food, friendly and wonderful service that put us at ease. We greatly enjoyed the friendliness of the staff equaled only to the modesty of the chef who made a superb and extremely memorable meal.

“WOW”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

No words to describe the experience of COI.
All the plates were simply amazing - i have never been a super fan of novelle cuisine, but this is the first time i eat it and i don't leave the restaurant being hungry.
Service is wonderful, too. i guess it comes with the price, but it's not always that way.
thank you guys for making my dinner so special!

“Please, Do yourself a favor and keep walking ”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

One of the most terrible eating experiences I've ever had. Each course was just a mix of uncomplimentary flavors. The best course was the bread and butter. You would think that for $200 a person the food would be amazing, guess what, wrong. First and last time for this diner. The sour marshmallow dessert really capped off the whole experience.
