Went for the lunch tasting menu. The food was excellent, the service outstanding. Not rushed, but attentive. Suitable for a special occasion or an important business affair. Prices to match... The restaurant was full, so reservation is strongly advised.

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s
version of Wall Street. The rush of business people
make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of
life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the
narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,

I don't think so, but you can choose between a prefixed menu, or 5 course menu or the tasting menu. Besides this, if you decide to do the 5 or tasting menu they will ask you if you have allergies or some particular foods you... More
