Wonderful experience with my mom.
My mom is a traditional Chinese women who do not like cuisines other than Chinese cuisine, but she told me this is the first time that she has really tasted the delicacy of Italian cuisine. And today is my mom's birthday, the restaurant gave us a dessert as the surprise. Really enjoy the night.
One word. WONDERFUL!!!
This was what has become our regular anniversary go-to visit. The food and service are always exceptional and unique. The ambiance is perfect. We wish that we could visit more frequently but the trek from the East Bay to SF can be challenging. What a wonderful way to celebrate. We thank Everyone at Acquerello for an outstanding dining experience.
Enjoyed the tasting menu with wine pairings over the course of a few hours with a friend. The service was focused, friendly and timely providing seamless service with a smile. (One gentleman was very serious in how he approached us which I didn't mind. My friend felt that he was being ignored by this gentleman). In terms of the food, we were happy with the variety and flavors we experienced. There were two big exceptions; 1) there was a fish course in broth mid way which had a very fishy odor to the point that I could smell it as it arrived to the table. (Not fresh...was disappointing) 2) the final dessert course (I believe it was final) had a cheese component which was not to either of our liking which was unfortunate way to bring the dinner to a close. The wine pairs were very well done and wonderful explained. Overall a good experience but at this price point we have had better. I would say it is worth a try but spend some time to consider some other options.
Visita a l ciudad con mi esposa. Habíamos estado ya antes. Hace 5 años pero es un Restaurant que mantiene su calidad gastronómica . Es un Gourmet único en su estilo .
Everything was delicious and it was perfect for a special occasion. The service was excellent. The sommelier was on spot!
Dining at Acquerello is always a wonderful experience. The duck was a stand out in an overall outstanding meal. The wine pairings were a perfect match to each course and the staff could not have been better. Can’t wait to return!
Lovely meal with great service. I can't believe restaurant wasn't busier.
Outstanding food and ambience as well as level of service. Everything was perfect!
5 year anniversary
Marvelous evening. This is the place for important occasions
This was one of the best fine dining meals I’ve had in San Francisco. Great flavors, wine pairing was on point and ambiance was nice.
Amazing birthday dinner!
Wonderful, great Food
Easily my favorite formal restaurant in sf is always consistent and rivals the best in the u.s. The outstanding food is matched by the very best service and an outstanding wine list. Acquerello is by far the best operation in sf for a major celebration in a classic setting.
The food was excellent and unique. I did the wine pairing which made my meal an event. I do not eat out a lot, but when I do, I want an experience--I have been lucky to be able to eat at some of the world's best restaurants. I am also by myself so I am particularly sensitive to the entire atmosphere at the restaurant.
I found that the service here was a bit robotic--very precise and efficient, but a bit off. Everyone had a specific job to do, but they would rush from one table to another. Maybe understaffed?
I will not return in the future and wished we had selected somewhere else
The best dinner I’ve ever had. The food was magnificent, beautiful works of art that tasted delicious.
Superb, as usual. Brought a couple friends to celebrate a birthday. Chef Suzette and team took excellent care of us. The whole experience is just amazing; the food, the service - all of it! Since I’ve been a few times now, my favorite thing is to just really watch the new people I bring get thoroughly blown away and enjoy themselves! This is the go-to place to really treat yourself and your (lucky) friends!
Our waiter was beyond excellent, service was impeccable, he was kind and so helpful. Food was fabulous. There was a douchbag millennial I could hear clearly across the room who wouldn’t shut up for three hours taking about women negatively, and how great he was he was with two other guys who seemed mildly embarrassed. But I can’t fault aquarello for that. 😉 I know it’s delicate balance but maybe in the future someone could tell a guy like that to curb it. Thank you we did have a wonderful time.
I sent my parents here for their 30th wedding anniversary. They had nothing but wonderful and beautiful things to say about the food, wine, and service.
Even the coordinating of handling the bill a ahead of time and having a note ready for their table was a smooth process.
Pricey but very nice for a special occasion. Service was wonderful and sommelier recommended a great bottle in our price range.
Food is excellent. Desserts were quite mediocre. Excellent wine pairing The service could be better...more smiles please?
One of the great restaurants of San Francisco. The two stars are well deserved.
Amazing dining experience in every way.
Wonderful restaurant! Service and knowledgeable staff makes this a great experience. It is pricey, but if you are looking for 5 Star dinning and a truly memorable experience, this is the place.
Amazing food and service. Couldn’t think of a better place to spend my birthday.
It was quite a disappointment starting with the unfriendly hostess at the door. Then the ravioli was under cooked and spinach creste di Galli with dry and hard skin. We were so surprised at how average and mundane the food were and didn’t understand how they got their two stars.
Silver lining, our server and sommelier were great, but a server with grey hair was rude. The experience was so unpleasant we will not go back there again.
Amazing meal.Even better staff who do everything to accommodate your enjoyment of the abounding and delicious food.
The service at Acquerello is the best you will find in San Francisco. The staff are polite, truly care about their guests, and professional. The sommelier, David, is knowledgeable and very helpful. The food is impeccable. My fiance and I plan to make this an annual treat!
All around fabulous. Every visit is special.
Very deserving of its Michelin stars. Elegant, gracious, delicious, beautiful.... true food as art. Perfect destination for a romantic and memorable evening.
Thanks for making my 29th birthday so wonderful!
Exquisitely prepared dishes. The staff is attentive, but not obtrusive. Dinner is a wonderful dining experience.
Everything was way more than we expected, every single person in that place went above and beyond to make our experience unique, thank you so much
Nice restaurant for a special occasion. Service was very attentive and meal was very good, but it was missing something that I can’t put my finger on. Not the same feeling I get in other Michellin Star restaurants in San Francisco.
I can’t say enough about this place. Service is impeccable. Probably the best I’ve ever had. They pay attention to every detail and make the whole experience extremely special. The food is incredible. You can’t go wrong with any dish. This place is probably one of my top 5 favorite restaurants in the city. Don’t hesitate. Just go!
We went to celebrate our Anniversary and we had an amazing experience! Everything was perfect!
