Reviewed yesterday NEW

The format is the now-standard multi-course tasting menu, except that instead of one or two bites, each course (of which there were 9 last night) is about the size of a standard restaurant appetizer. This means that by the time you get to the heavier latter courses, you are truly stuffed. The presentation and service are very slick, and the... More

Quince is an experience as much as a meal. The multi course dinner of four hours or so is more than your average dining experience to begin with. They cater to your every need and try to make sure that your experience is amazing. The price might leave you a little light in the pocket, but overall it is unlike... More

Some dishes were (of course) very excellent, some dishes were just A-OK. The service was excellent. I don't think I need to harp on the food much, as people who are more "foodie" than me can provide their feedback. All I can say is, at this price range, food isn't going to taste bad. The only thing I want to... More

First walking in this place, it has almost an old School New York swanky feel about it. I really loved it. We had a business meeting with about 8 other people and had the tasting menu. Their menu changes frequently, with the seasons I imagine, and I just LOVED the pasta dishes. Each course was well thought out, and delicious.... More

We went here for my birthday and it was exactly what you'd imagine of a perfect Michelin experience. Courteous staff served us with warmth and liveliness, food was delightful and delicious.

Had a good time there with friends. Some of the food was excellent but (compared with other Michelin places) some of it didn't quite stack up... also people doing the service don't have to be quite so serious looking.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
