We had fairly high expectations as this was a three-star restaurant. We have eaten at more than 15 Michelin starred restaurants around the world so we had pretty good reference points to benchmark Quince against. The service was friendly but a bit chaotic and unstructured....More

North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.

There's no formal dress code in the restaurant. However people tend to dress up going to a restaurant in this caliber. You don't want the chandeliers in the restaurant out dress you, do you? 😉
