  • c0uPGood vegetarian tasting menu!

    55555 by c0uP

  • RisaGo with the garden tasting menu (instead of the Quince menu). It's an exciting take on seasonal CA cuisine that is gorgeous & delicious. (White truffle upgrade is def worth it if they're in season!)

    55555 by Risa

  • Ketil AGreat SF restaurant, higly recommended

    55555 by Jason H.

  • Jen V.This place is phenomenal! You either choose a 5 or 9 course meal. Their service is superb. So worth the money!

    55555 by Jen V.

  • Jordan K.Recently awarded a second Michelin star. When in doubt, go for the longer tasting menu! (Never have I been so satisfied with a vegetarian option.)

  • HeatWe are very lucky to have Quince so close, as many need to travel across town to indulge this way. Make sure the expense is pre-approved. Or better yet, bring Elder.

  • Gabrielle MGlorious and amazing. If you let them know you are celebrating something they take amazingly good care of you! Also the sommelier is one of the best I have experienced. She knows her stuff!!!

  • Liz D.Try the "Scotch and Cheese": three pairings of cheeses and scotch.

    55555 by Liz D.

  • Jose M.Number one so far. Just perfect service, food and outfit. Perhaps too much perfectionist.

    55555 by Jose M.

  • Jane C.VERY delicious Italian restaurant. This is def fine dining so it's not cheap. Reservations should be made well in advance. Ask for experimental wine pairings. You'll be amazed!

    55555 by Jane C.

    55555 by martin rogard

  • Exclusive ResortsBeautiful, formal room that is great for a special celebration or just because. There is a prix fixe menu and a la carte options. The pasta course is not to be missed.

    55555 by Exclusive Resorts

  • Sandra P.One of the best restaurants is SFO. The 4 plates menu is awesome. Try the CRUDO, then the Tagliateli, the Duck and the Pear as dessert. Best choice: wine pairing with the tips of the sommelier.

    55555 by Sandra P.

    55555 by A.J. B.

  • Laura V.Note to NYC foodies: bathrooms are unisex...gross. Dress code means nothing here. Leave the jeans at home please. And if they get u a cab, expect to pay wait fees of ill mannered cabbies.

  • Wladi M.great service. pricey

  • Showtime NetworkFact: Quince does not mean 15 in Italian (which, by the way, is a number larger than Joffre Borgia’s age at his wedding).

  • Erin S.Make a casual dinner out of primis and pastas at the bar. If you're feeling fancy let the handsome bartenders do some wine pairings for you.

    55555 by Erin S.

  • @A.G. Wine - iPhone/iPadFor a unique white at a good price, try Primosic’s (Friuli-Venezia, Italy) white based on the little-known vitovska variety. Vitovska-based wines are full-bodied, honeyed, w/ chalky minerality.

  • Beau H.Go there for a romantic birthday. Let them know ahead of time and they print a custom menu. Very cute. And the angnolotti are incredible.

    55555 by Beau H.

  • Jim K.Saddle up to the bar early in the evening when they first open and ask the bartender to suggest a drink not necessarily on the menu.

    33333 by Jim K.

  • Brent EGo the cheese over dessert. The selection is mind blowing.

    55555 by Brent E

  • 7x7 M.We've narrowed it to the agnolotti...it's #57 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.

    55555 by 7x7 M.

  • Shadi M.One of the last few fine dining spots in SF I still need to try. Wish their dining room was slightly bigger and it wasn't as painful to get a reservation.
