Had the tasting menu with the wine pairing (regular one) which were both amazing. The best part is that every plate is made with local ingredients and the chef makes sure that those ingredients really stand out. Also, as you would expect for this type of restaurant, impeccable service.

Daniel Patterson's "adventurous", "exquisitely prepared" tasting menus are a "journey worth taking" assert fans of this North Beach Californian-French, where "seasonal" ingredients stand out in a "magical" "mélange of flavors and techniques"; service is "impeccable" while the "minimal" space is an "oasis of calm", and though it may be "outrageously expensive", many recommend it for a "special occasion" or just to "have your food mind blown"; P.S. reservations are only available through a prepaid online ticketing system.

Absolutely my most favorite restaurant ever! The food is magical, whimsical, fresh and delicious. The yellow squash soup is like eating sunshine. Each meal is a melange of flavors and techniques without ever being unapproachable. Foams, infusions, multi-sensory dishes. Everything I've had here has been amazing. I wish it were priced for everyday dining but its a great special occasion meal.

We recently went back to COI after our first visit 2 years ago and the meal was exceptional. Every dish was very strong and the service was perfect. Definitely one of the best restaurants in the city.

This was one of my bucket list restaurants and it surpassed my already very high expectation. Amazing, knowledgable staff and an extremely relaxed atmosphere. Then there was the food, really can't explain. Quality, freshness, nuance, technique and intellectual all in a crazy deliciousness. A must go to place.

I'm going to give Coi a 2 star rating, but only because it taught me a valuable lesson. While planning a business trip I and a colleague could not believe our great fortune to score some final tickets for a late seating. We drove all day from LA to San Francisco along the scenic coast highway hurrying through most of the day in order to make our reservations. In retrospect, I would have rather just taken the loss of my prepayment and enjoyed our drive a bit more. The service at Coi, while attentive, is inconsistent and almost impersonal. We both opted for a wine pairing, my colleague selected the standard and I the cellar reserve. Each wine paired for my colleague was fully explained in detail with tasting notes and history of the vintner. Mine? Not so much. The head Som simply stopped by at the beginning of the meal and said, here's your wine's I'm going to put them decanters. I was also unaware that my pairing consisted of a larger pour of several wines meant to last over 2 courses. Had I known this, I would have opted for the standard pairing for a greater variety. The food was beautifully presented. Each dish was a work of art. However there was little to no flavor in most of them. This might seem reductionist, but there is literally nothing else I can say about the food. It was that unremarkable. At the end of the day I felt as though the curtain had been pulled back and the wizard had been revealed to be a fraud. I was left wondering if it was me, was I missing something? Was my pallet not as refined as I'd imagined? Or was the Michelin Star rating system a sham? We had several other outstanding meals on our trip, sadly the one that we were anticipating the most was not one of them. The lesson? Never meet your idols.

Great ambiance, excellent food and friendly and professional service. Highlights included abalone, cod smoked over beet charcoal, and a grilled cheese sandwich with gruyere and pickled carrots. Like most other restaurants of this caliber, the menu is seasonal, so there are no guarantees that the same dishes will be available during your trip. A tip for prospective diners: when I went the restaurant offered both a tasting menu and an a la carte menu, but was more than happy to mix and match, which I would definitely recommend.

Incredible coursed menu; make sure to get sommelier pairings for each course, if possible. Everything is beyond fresh and fragrant, with delicate tastes balanced perfectly with texture and color. Its an artistic experience to eat here, so make sure to enjoy everything!
