  • Did I mention attentive service?

    Dined here again and had the tasting menu with wine pairing. Wow! Best meal ever. Attentive service. Very very generous pours. Excellent wines, mostly Californians, mostly whites. Attentive service. Dishes were small but numerous and tasty and filling. Loved the scallops. Loved the duck. Loved everything! Did I mention attentive service?

  • What a flavorful meal!

    Yum! I went here for my birthday dinner with family and oh em gee! What a flavorful meal! The appetizer menu is one of the best. Our party sampled the beef tartar, shrimp and delicious ravioli. The entrees, halibut and steak, were perfectly cooked and seasoned. We finished with dessert and I left stuffed! The wait staff were all so attentive and loved the new decor. I loved it before and now love it more! Thanks!

  • One of the best restaurants in San Francisco

    The Michelin starred Luce is known as one of the best restaurants in San Francisco where it is relatively easy to get a reservation. We were looking for a last minute celebratory dinner and Luce turned out to be perfect. If you don't choose the Tasting Menu (which my wife won't do) they have a wonderfully tight a la carte menu, with just 6 appetizers and 4 mains. Having few choices means that they take great care and pride in each course, and of the 6 courses we had, all were very good. Service was very friendly and not at all stuffy. It was also pretty quiet, which is unusual in a SF restaurant, so if you like conversation, this is an especially good choice. Lots of wines by the glass and even half-bottles for moderate drinkers. Nice dessert choices as well. Would like to come back to try their tasting menu. For what you get, prices are reasonable, though not cheap.

  • Beautiful, tasty, and light

    Excellent service. We didn't have a problem getting in and the food was perfect. We had the tasting menu and it was worth every penny. The food was beautiful, tasty and light. The restaurant has great lighting, light music and a calming atmosphere.

  • The wine pours with the tasting menu were superb

    The food was delicious. The server was great and explained every nuance to each dish. The wine pours with the tasting menu were superb in quality, pairing, and volume. The wine pairing is a great value. All 4 people at the dinner loved the food.

  • Service was amazing

    We did the chef's tasting table with wine pairing. Amazing. The portions were in the right size - i.e. small enough so you could enjoy each course from start to finish. Each course was served with nice explanations of how the dish was prepared. Service was amazing. It would be a tad nicer if it was a view restaurant, but the food more than made up for this. We had an enjoyable two and a half hour dinner and loved just talking and enjoying the amazing food. Service was exceptional.

  • It's a secret gem!

    We were pleasantly surprised to find this lovely restaurant!!We needed a place to stay for the night for date night and lucked out having a Michelin star restaurant in our hotel. We walked right in! No wait! This is unheard of especially in the city. It's a secret gem! Our waiter was funny, polite, and paired our wine perfectly to each dish.The bussing staff was attentive and made our experience feel warm and inviting. Best dish was the squash with ricotta. I could eat this everyday! We will be back!
