Success! Thanks for posting your review of Michael Mina. You’ve done the world some good today.

One of the two best dining experiences I've had in my life

One of the two best dining experiences I've had in my life (so far!).  The other was The French Laundry years ago.  My partner and I just ate here with two other couples.  Not cheap!  But entirely worth it.  I just bought a $750 gift certificate to this restaurant as a gift to friends of ours.  Enjoy!

Worthy successor

It broke my heart when I saw the old Compass Rose bar closed and boarded up in the lobby of the St. Francis Hotel. It was on of California's great bars. Then Michael Mina opened in the space and all is forgiven. The room and setting spell class and the food is tops. It's a hot spot for pre-theater, but I don't like to dine against a clock or a curtain time. So, I go later and take my time. For a full report on this a... view more

Won't go back.

My boyfriend and I went to Michael Mina the last night we were in San Francisco. We were staying at the St. Francis, so we figured we had to try it. The meal cost us over $450 and was not up to par. The desert was the only good thing I really remember. Go only for the chocolate chip cookies. The next morning I felt horribley sick from it. Would not recommend going.

This is one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. My husband and I splurged on our trip to San Francisco this past June. I was feeling silly about spending that kind of money on a dinner, but it was soooo worth it! I thought I had tasted a great cut of beef before. Then I ate at this restaurant and realized what I had been missing. Really the whole experience was pretty superb. Service was very attenti... view more

overall a great dining experience...

this is my first time to dine at MM and i can say it is definitely not the last for a special occasion at least (pricey but worth it), a bit surprised that it is actually at a hotel lobby but that did not overshadowed how impressed i am with the service, the ambiance was nothing but romantic, and the food, food was just spectacular. the complimentary appetizer was just to die for, the oyster just melts in your mouth,... view more

Poor service and noisy

My wife and I ate our Christmas Eve dinner at Michael Mina?s restaurant in the St Francis Hotel this year. We made this choice because the restaurant had garnered three Michelin stars. \r Given all this our expectations were high, too high as it turned out. The dishes were excellent in their imaginative combinations as well as in preparation and in presentation. \r Of ambience the less said the better, the place i... view more

Utterly spectacular!

My wife and I arrived late on a Friday night for their last seating. We were quite impressed right from the beginning. We liked the choices of the ?by the glass? wine list. We also ordered a great Pinot Noir from the bottle list. The dinning menu was really well balanced; we wished that we could have a bit of everything. We each chose the three course menu. What we really found interesting about the food was not only... view more

I Love the Variety of Flavors in Each Course

Yum! My friend took me out for dinner here a few months ago and we were absolutely blown away with the food. We loved the bite sized tastes (roughly 7-9 different heavenly concoctions with each course). The only drawback was the noise from the lobby area as Mina's is located in the Westin St. Francis hotel. Other than that, it was wonderful.

Over the TOP Man!

Yeah, pricey but SO creative! Enjoyed it quite a bit more than Gary Danko. I don't get some of these reviews (reviewers!)? What do you expect price-wise for a restaurant of this caliber? Why be sore about what it's worth? & including the overhearing of ""treating of their staff""!!! Who cares grape(numb)nuts? It's obviously how and why the service is this good stupid! I just can't say enough what a ""well oile... view more

Great food, even for business dinner boredom!

I used to have a job that required hob nobbing with business partners wherever we wanted to eat. I would come to Michael Mina ALOT. The food is so good here that talking business wasnt nearly as painful! I could just glaze over and nod every once in a while. What I really was doing was concentrating on the taste of the foie gras or scallops in my mouth. If it wasnt so pricey I would still come here once a week.
