"Hard to top" for "fancy dining" "at its best" , this "refined" Downtown Californian from "passionate" husband-and-wife team Michael and Lindsay Tusk "sparkles" thanks to his "superbly executed" cuisine showcasing Italian accents and a "fresh, local food ethos" , complemented by a "fabulous wine list" in "dreamy" surroundings run by a "stellar" staff; you’ll "shell out some big bucks" , but for a "special occasion" that’s "absolutely over the moon" , it’s "well worth it."

I love this place. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have great food. The food just melts in your mouth. It is a great place to eat!

The good news and not so good news! The food was refined and excellent. The atmosphere was a bit pretentious....too much. (Note: we have experienced many comparably rated restaurants) The chef's preparation in the kitchen was special. But the service was incredibly slow. There was a very large party that arrived as we did. However this caliber restaurant should have been able to handle it MUCH better.

We decided to finish our Cali tour with Quince. Starting from calling and making a reservation was the best customer service. We needed to catch a flight after dinner so they accommodated our luggage. Then when we started our dinner, this place was out of this world. The food is so good I can't explain everything because it will ruin the experience. Having the unknown is what truly makes it worth it. Going into the restaurant knowing that your going to be taken care of and enjoy every moment of it. I highly recommend for going for a special occasion, going to try probably the best Michelin star(s) restaurants and you will need to come here once in your life. The authenticity of the food and preparation of the cutlery and plates, to bringing our luggage into our Uber driver, is just a glimpse of what is to be expected. Highly recommend it!
