Eight Tables by George Chen
High-end, ornate Chinese tasting menus
Chinese · North Beach · $$$
Chef George Chen balances Chinese tradition and innovation at this upscale, tasting menu-focused restaurant and bar within China Live; dishes like caviar dumplings and banana leaf-steamed black cod are served in an order established during the 10th-century Song Dynasty. The polished, second-floor space (accessed via a discreet alleyway and freight elevator) is luxe banquet hall meets upper-class Shanghai apartment – with indeed just eight tables.

The service and atmosphere were outstanding. As good as it gets. We really enjoyed the food, I can't say it's the best fixed menu I've ever had, some dishes were just ok, but the overall experience is certainly worth it. The cocktail list has a lot of super interesting and theatrical presentations.

Eight Tables is just a phenomenal restaurant. Everything about it from the moment you walk in, the ambiance really hits you. Then the fact that there are eight tables makes it an interesting atmosphere in the restaurant. The service was very accommodating and even realized that my brother was a lefty. The food was outstanding. Starting with a very varietal first course that brought flavors that were shared in later courses. The chefs table in the kitchen gave my family a good chance to see what goes on in this hectic kitchen. It was quite clean and very organized. Overall this is probably one of the best restaurants I have ever been too and I’m bound to come again.

Finally a true Chinese fine dining experience!!!! And with a front of the house staff that rivals the French laundry in attention to detail. Absolutely superb. Can't wait to see eight tables get a few Michelin stars. (And this was soooo much better than Benu in every way.)
