"Everything at this place is first-class" say fans of Michael Mina's "vibrant" Downtown New American, known for its "sumptuous" cuisine (notably the "memorable" prix fixe dinners), "outstanding" service and "unbelievably elegant yet comfortable" surroundings; given the "pricey" tariffs, many save it for "celebrating" , but it's also "fun to eat at the bar" for a less "formal" meal.

This is, hands down, my favorite bar. Dinner here is truly magical but it's the bar and the world class people behind it that secure its place in my heart. Megan created my girlfriend's favorite drink on her birthday. It helped inspire The Lost Garden Found which settled in on the menu for six months. Franco designed mine, a kind of Black Manhattan that contributed to the Don't Call Me Shirley which is on there right now. It's not that we're so great at choosing soon to be popular drinks, it's the aforementioned staff. Megan had a drink in USA Today and can design masterpieces based on just a few key questions. Franco is simply wonderful and makes me feel at home whether it's with clients or on date night. Thank you team Michael Mina.

My favorite here was not any of the entrees or desserts but rather the bread with the ricotta and honey spread. The bread was so soft and buttery and the spread was melt in your mouth delicious! The bread and spread was the best I have had anywhere! We started off with the a half dozen oysters and the suckling pig. The oysters tasted fresh and the suckling pig had a nice crispy skin and was quite good in taste. For the entrees, we had the duck breast and the black cod. Both were really delicious. The duck skin was crispy and the meat was cooked perfectly. Presentation of all the foods were neat and artistic. Overall the food and experience were good. This is a nice fine dining experience to have in SF.

Chef's tasting menu is equal to the best food anywhere. Service is great. Decor is beautiful. The noise level and music level allow for pleasant conversation, even on a Saturday night. The staff are engaging and attentive. The perfect spot.
