Luce - InterContinental San Francisco Ratings and Reviews
This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. The service is divine, extremely attentive. The food is equally exquisite. I started with a butternut squash and whipped ricotta appetizer that was phenomenal, the best part of the meal. I had halibut as an entree, a generally bland fish but superbly paired with a white sauce and a nicoise salad. Dessert was chocolate custard, positively delicious. A tremendous experience all around.
We had our anniversary dinner at Luce and it was a wonderful experience overall. Food was great and creative, James had a back story for every wine and champage and made great recommendations. Would definitely do it again - it is also close enough to the Orpheus theatre for shows afterwards.
Amazing dinner at Luce. We had one of the last seating's of the evening at 9:45pm so the restaurant was quite uncrowded. The service staff were excellent, highly attentive and made some great recommendations. Although the tasting menu is not available after 9pm at this Michelin rated gem, the a la carte selections where amazing, as was the wine recommendation. Definitely worth the money and could be equally good for a romantic date, business dinner or group of friends. The location in downtown SF inside the Intercontinental Hotel is also very convenient. Overall, an excellent experience and would definitely go back!
Luce: the three of us attending the fancy show came to restaurant Saaturday night. We all had the tating menu. The chef made accomodations for dietary restrictions but otherwise everything as per menu.
The waitstaff including James our waiter was impeccable. Lots of small portions served slowly or with time between but we were all full.. Best courses: salmon with persimmons, halibut with
potato puree, the roasted duck the lovely chocolate dessert and coffee which is wonderfully strong.
Awesome, affordable Michelin-star dining experience for Canadians looking to stretch their CAD with a less than ideal exchange rate.
Food was delicious and unpretentious. Beautiful presentation.
Service was paced, knowledgable and wonderful. Didn't catch our fellows name, but he was very kind and respectful of our private time (date with my boyfriend).
Sommelier was a hoot! Very knowledgable and extremely personable.
Quiet setting with an great view of Burlington Coat Factory (haha), but the interior design makes up for the lack of view. Great ambiance and relatively quiet music.
We chose to celebrate the New Year by including Luce in our plans and so happy we did. Excellent starters. The sweetbreads ravioli were really amazing and the duck main was the best I've had in ages. Keith was our server. We missed Claudio but the lovely woman working understood our sourdough bread obsession and was kind. Great staff. Amazing chefs. Thanks for a memorable meal.
Delivers high-class city dining in an elegantly luxurious setting. Atmosphere, food, and setting live up to its excellent reputation, but we were especially pleased with the top-notch service! The wait staff were friendly, professional, helpful, knowledgeable (gave us an excellent wine pairing suggestion), and attentive yet appropriately distant: service perfection!
We arrived early for our reservation and were immediately seated, one member in our party of six is a vegetarian and the chef made beautiful and delicious plates just for her. Service was impeccable, the sommelier was quite knowledgeable and each course was presented beautifully. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our dining experience. Definitely recommend this restaurant for special evenings and celebrations.
This is the restaurant at the Intercontinental Hotel and it's won a Michelin star for eight consecutive years. I know why. My wife and I had lunch. We started with artichoke veloute (one appetizer) and a salad of burrata with chicories (a second appetizer). Both were superb. I had a chicken salad sandwich for an entree. She had a quinoa bowl with salmon and kale. Again, terrific. Desserts were chocolate pot-de-creme and butterscotch budino. Wonderful. Service was extremely attentive. A definite hit.
This was my first Michelin star restaurant, and was not sure what to expect.
What I got was an excellent meal, excellent service, and well prepaired food. Each item my wife and I had was well balanced, and flavorful without being over the top.
The only down side, was that the location inside the hotel was not ideal. The seating was rather plebeian, and did not reflect the rest of the fine dining atmosphere...the crying baby in the background didn't help ;-)
That said, I would recommend the restaurant highly.
We went there for a lunch and there are not many people during lunch time and it is very quiet. I ordered the king salmon entree and my friend ordered the rib. We also had a salad for the starter to share and one order of fries. Really a lot of food for us, I can not even finish half of the king salmon and it is so delicious and worth the price value.
Excellent food and service. I would recommend it to anyone who loves fine dining. Service staff was exceptionally friendly and enjoyable. I have eaten and many M Star restaurants and most are up tight and nervous. The staff at Luce was comfortable and clearly enjoy what they do. Service was the clear winner of the night.
The amberjack appetizer was perfect. Prawns with chili's sauce was excellent. Sweetbreads were great. The ginger Panna cotta could have used more ginger. The chocolate butternut squash tart with brown butter ice cream was a revelation. Great juxtapositions so flavors. An extensive wine list, but I can't drink a bottle on my own, so had hoped that the by-the-glass selection was broader. That being said, I prefer old world wines, so if you're a fan of California wines, you'd probably find things to your taste.
Luce is located near a bar on the lobby level of InterContinental hotel, which obviously is noisy but we didn't know since it's our first time. Service was tentative, responsive, and professional. Autumn menu is as expected from a Michelin one star restaurant. Our seating booth was so uncomfortable since the cushion were not even, and almost felt out, we had to move right, and left many times during dinner.
Overall, we think Luce has excellent service, and it's just a good place for casual business eatery.
We had a wonderful experience dining at Luce for a 21st birthday celebration!!The staff and chef were extraordinarily attentive and accommodating (numerous food allergies) and we couldn't have asked for a better food/wine pairing experience. Thank you for a fantastic evening that my daughter will never forget!
