Saison is everything i ever wanted from a restaurant of this caliber and then some. The food was incredible, innovative and inventive and the service was friendly, and more casual (in a good way) than you would expect for a 2 star michelin restaurant. For a 16-course dinner, the diversity of wine/sake/beer choices with the "Elevated Tasting" was pretty incredible. I love the atmosphere and that you can literally see right into the kitchen. The waiters were very professional yet laid back and fun. I will definitely be back!

Fantastic preparations and food with incredible service. Pricey, but worth it.

I'm a bit of a Saison snob (having lived in India for a spell) and was very excited to try Dosa... We ordered a few appetizers and the classic standard by which all dosas must be judged - the Saison Spag. Delicious. The Saison itself was crisp, light and not burned... and the filling was deliciously spiced and not oily. The appetizer was beautifully presented. All in all a very efficient and great night.

the 8-course tasting menu scores high marks for dare-do and originality. it takes guts to serve bone marrow, and it takes talent to make it taste better than fois gras. some unexpected combinations work amazingly well (like the carrots with dates), others less so, but all are pared perfectly with off-the-beaten-path wines. however, the microscopic portions left us completely hungry – so to truly appreciate saison, sneak in a piece of pizza.

A place where the salad, seemingly an afterthought on the menu, can blow you away with flavor and originality. Seafood courses did not disappoint, but all were excellent. Like all great restaurants, expensive but worth it. Also liked that the atmosphere is casual: the place plays rock music at nearly $200 per person all told.

It’s hard to believe that Saison started in 2009 as a once-a-week pop-up in the back of Stable Café in the San Francisco Mission. While they’re now thankfully open Tuesday through Saturday, with just 18 seats and everyone eating about 20 courses, the waiting list for reservations is no joke. I love how Saison is flawlessly dedicated to seasonal ingredients—many of which were harvested in the eatery’s own gardens—and cooking over open fire. The ever-changing menu means you have to be a trusting sort, but in the hands of Chef Joshua Skenes you can bet the house that it’ll be mind-blowingly good. Save up your pennies: Saison isn’t cheap, but the two-Michelin star restaurant is worth every penny.

Best "Fine Dining" Meal I have every had in San Francisco. The food may be precious, but the flavors and tastes come through on every dish. Joshua is paving the way for the bay area in fine dining, and I will be going back for more. Service was spot on, the nice modern danish interior of sorts, all worked for me.

If you want to be blown away by food, this is the place. Ridiculous prices but worth going at least once. The focus is food so the environment is casual. No need to dress up. Service is also casual but attentive and not stuffy.
